So Impressed!!!!!
The grand hotel was always on our list of venues to choose from. The location , views and style of this place is enough. However The amazing Lauren is what sold it to us for our wedding celebration in September. From start to finish Lauren made us relax and feel like family and nothing was too much trouble. She went above and beyond to ensure we had the most amazing day. The rest of staff are also fantastic and made us feel like they really wanted us there. Would definately recommend the grand. We were so impressed.

Our Daughters Wedding
On the 1st December 2018 our daughter and son in law, Bryony & Brad, held their wedding reception at The Grand Hotel. This reception was booked in August 2017 and throughout all the planning we were exceptionally well looked after by their Wedding Planner, Lauren Cooke. She is an amazing young lady who knew her job so well. The day arrived and the hotel was spectacular, we could not have asked for more. Lauren had organised everything to the last detail and we could not fault anything, including the wonderful flower arrangements created for the day by Fiesta Red of St Marychurch Torquay. The wedding breakfast was superb, service was excellent, and the evening buffet and bacon baps at midnight were more than we could all eat. The rooms for our wedding guests were of excellent standard and so was the breakfast the next morning. We cannot praise Lauren and her team highly enough for giving us all a day to remember. To quote " Richardson Hotels - Where Memories are Made", how true this was on the 1st December.

Always be a special place to us
We had our wedding reception here at the beginning of the month and it was the best day ever. Lauren and the team at the hotel put together the most incredible day for us, we could not have asked for a better team to help us make this day happen. The food was outstanding, the DJ Mitch kept us dancing all night long, our room was beautiful and it continued on the next morning with our wonderful breakfast. I cannot recommend this hotel enough, thank you for everything you have done for us! We will continue to visit the hotel as it will always have a special place with us.

Attention to Detail was Outstanding
Amazing team cannot thank them enough for a great wedding day! Lauren is a star she was there for us through all our planning for literally anything and she made the day amazing she helped me hold it together in occasions I really needed to! Would recommend a wedding at the Grand Hotel to everybody! Lauren made our dream a reality. Her attention to detail was outstanding and even now almost 1 year later its the most amazing memory in our lives. We met on the saddest day of our lives when my husband decided to set the date, unbeknown to us the date became available the day my Mum passed, Lauren was both sympathetic but also able to make us smile and look forward to an event which we hadn't envisaged. Lauren admitted after our wedding that she felt more pressure than normal to get this perfect - Lauren I am truly sorry Mum made her presence felt so strongly!!

Fond Memories
I had booked for four nights for our WeddingAnniversary in September but fell and fractured my shoulder. The Hotel kindly let me postpone my break until December. The Grand was beautifully decorated for the festive season. Once again the staff were so friendly and helpful, nothing too much trouble. The food was delicious both at breakfast and the restaurant in the evening. The sea view room very nice. We took advantage of the bus outside the hotel to visit Brixham. The atmosphere was marvellous and thoroughly enjoyed by us both. Hope to be back next year for our Golden Wedding Anniversary. A First Class Hotel.
