Had the most amazing day thanks to all the staff at the Grand. Yasmina has been brilliant. Also, special thanks to the chefs, toastmaster Tim and the door staff who were all amazing.

Every single aspect of the day exceeded our expectations. We felt like royalty for the entire stay. Our guests

were all delighted with the food and service.

I would not hesitate to recommend the Grand and their affiliated services to anyone looking for a venue for a special occasion. I should add that we found the costs quite reasonable in comparison to other venues as well, particularly when you consider the high standard of service.

Hi Billie-Jo,

At last, I have come back down to earth and have got a moment to write to you!

Both Tony and I would like to say a huge thank you to you for everything you did in making it the most magical day for us. You have been brilliant throughout, in not just the organising, but the

flexibility in the current circumstances, the extra details and tweaks we had to make, and in reassuring us that everything was in hand. You were incredibly helpful on the day itself, from coordinating us, overseeing the room set up and being so hands on, to keeping my dress in check for the photos and ceremony! As well as much much more behind the scenes I have no doubt. Thank you so much for making it the most perfect day for us both, we are very grateful for all of your help and support!

The rest of the team were also fantastic, Wian and the other ladies were brilliant on the day, throughout the ceremony and meal especially. We are so pleased we chose The Grand.

We are disappointed, no doubt as you are, that the hotel has had to close again. One of my friends in Canada who was unable to make it, has actually gifted Tony and I an afternoon tea voucher, so we are looking forward to coming back as soon as we can to enjoy it! And hopefully thank you properly in person.
