Everything was in very capable hands
I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help. We were so pleased with every aspect of the wedding reception, in particular how helpful and attentive the event team were. Knowing that everything was in very capable hands meant we could just enjoy our time at The Grand.

We all had a fabulous time
Thank you Sarah, you did a fantastic job in setting it up for us and your staff were great. We all had a fabulous time and the hotel made us feel really special. It has a great atmosphere and we think the only hotel that could put a show on like the Grand does. We will be back for the odd romantic break and we look forward to enjoying the hotel again.
