The Grand Hotel hosted our daughter’s wedding and the staff made sure that everything was perfect.

Superb attention to detail, excellent service and a beautiful facility. The food was divine. The bridal suite was amazing.

I would not hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone planning a special event.

Cannot say enough good things about this place!

My wife and I choose to have our wedding here, because the venue and hotel we thought would cater well to our wedding size of just over 60 people.

We were not disappointed, and even blown away by the service and food quality. Nothing could have gone better!

My daughter had her wedding reception at the grand hotel and the rooms were all booked by our family. Steve and his staff were extraordinary.

Every single request was fulfilled quickly and joyfully from the towels to the coffee maker to the coffee at the reception.

Great attention to detail and most accomodating. It was an amazing experience for our family and they made it so.. I highly recommend this fine establishment for whatever your pleasure.

A hidden gem. This hotel has a beautiful aesthetic, wonderful service and the best bar/restaurant around.

The decor is really interesting, I can see why it’s a destination for weddings.

The rooms are clean and modern and the beds are better than what you’d find at a chain hotel. Overall excellent value for money.
