Cannot Praise this venue enough!!!
We had our Wedding ceremony, breakfast and evening reception at the Grand Hotel, and it was everything we could have ever wanted and more.
Our Co-ordinator Gabriella McTear did everything to make planning the day so easy. She gave us all of the information that we required to make informed decisions, and was in constant contact with us from the day of our enquiry to the wedding day.
The Hotel itself is an architectural marvel, and the Staff are equally splendid. Nothing was ever too much trouble, and they made you feel so welcome from the first time you set foot in the hotel.
The Day itself went without a hitch, largely because our Event manager Elliot was overseeing every aspect of the day (not that you would notice). He was fabulous and made you feel so at ease with all the hustle and bustle throughout the event. Even providing Simon (groom) with a nice cold lager without even needing to be asked after the photographs.
The Food was absolutely fantastic. From the canapés and 3 course wedding breakfast through to the evening buffet. Presented beautifully and was HOT! The service of the food was seamless and provided with military precision, even during the evening reception.
Although certainly not the cheapest wedding venue in the area, it is definitely the best for quality and service. You certainly DO get what you pay for. I would urge any couple to put back their wedding another year in order to afford to have it at this venue. It will truly be the happiest day of your life. It certainly was ours, and if I had 10 stars available to award this fabulous venue I would!
We were able to enjoy every moment of our wedding without worrying about a single thing on the day. For us, making the most of seeing family that had travelled so far, to a venue that was so amazing, meant everything in the world.
We loved it so much we stayed an additional 3 nights after the wedding. We didn't want it to end!
A 5 Star hotel it definitely is!
