The Grand Hotel has been fantastic
I cannot tell you how fantastic the Grand Hotel has been!! You and everyone who were there for our weekend were absolutely brilliant. From the gorgeous men at the front doors, the reception staff, the staff at the event, the staff who kept coming to our rooms with gifts or messages etc. The Gentleman in charge on the day itself was just lovely!! The staff worked so hard all day and we can’t sing their praises enough. You made our day run so smooth. The food, the decor and absolutely everything was gorgeous. We came away with the best memories that we will treasure for life. You are part of a fabulous team of people and we want you to know that you are all very special to us. We won’t forget everything you did to make our day what it was. The feedback from our guests was fantastic. You all deserve some recognition for all your hard work. We’ll be back at the Grand in the new year for definite but for now take care and thank you once again.

Lauren Thank you for organising our wedding yesterday, we had an absolutely amazing day. I wanted to pass on that James was absolutely fantastic and I think every venue needs a James!

Everything was absolutely perfect!
We would like to thank you and all of the staff at the Grand for making our Wedding so wonderful. Everything was absolutely perfect and we just can't get over how our special day ran without a hitch. The day would have been nice but the main reason it was exceptional was the fantastic staff in a fantastic venue. Everyone was so efficient and professional however their warmth and friendliness shone through, just a winning combination. Most brides will never forget their wedding day however my memories will be hard to beat.

Just wanted to say thank you so much...
Hi Catherine and Laura, Michael and I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help with our wedding on Sunday. Everything was exactly how we wanted, all our guests said how welcoming The Grand was, and the whole team were so wonderful, with nothing being too much trouble in any help needed. Even with some last minute changes with seating arrangements! You made it so easy for us. Please pass on a special thanks to Ashley as well, who was brilliant and the whole team who were simply fantastic. We’re so pleased to have chosen to have our Wedding at The Grand, from the first moment we contact you, you have been so attentive, friendly and made it such a fantastic experience for us. Richard our photographer has sent through some sneaky peak photos, but once he’s sent through the others I'll be sure to send them on. The banqueting table took my breath away, the room was just spectacular. Thank you so much again

FAQ
(10)

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

It would be impossible to name only one, but my favourite part is watching the couple at the bottom of the aisle and see all their planning payoff.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Plan the day for yourselves, your guests are there for you so just enjoy it!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

I love seeing personal stories, one of my favourites was created on a wooden ladder with the first date on the bottom step up to the day of wedding on the top.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Luxurious Elegant Unforgettable Inviting Elaborate

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

This has to be our period Staircase that greets you on arrival. The Edwardian architecture is signified by the impeccable design which creates the perfect backdrop for your Wedding photos.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

That would be telling! We have had a range of celebrity guests stay with us but unfortunately I am still waiting for Robbie Williams to grace our Hotel entrance!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Mini Cottage Pie! Maybe that is the Yorkshire in me but I think it is great!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

I don't believe treats are only for midnight! I therefore like to indulge all day but if I had to choose on it would have to be left over buffet food!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

As the original Railway Offices, our Grand Boardroom features a traditional Blackboard which can be personalised for your Special Day!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

All of it! From the welcome on arrival by our Concierge team, to the service on the day. Our staff make the venue the best I know!
