Vintage Gem

We cannot say enough about how magical the Grand Hotel and all that’s within is. From the exceptional, friendly and attentive staff and owner, amazing food , to the beautiful vintage glamour of the entire place. Steve and Mel especially went out of their way to make our wedding day the most memorable and best it could be. The grand made the whole process very simple and had everything we needed for our day from the chef to the decor. Our family, friends, and us were completely enamoured. It will forever be one of our favourite places to go back to. Much love to the gem that is the Grand Hotel

Get married here

The Grand Hotel is hands down the best wedding venue I could have chosen. The service was outstanding and Steve made the whole night so smooth. Was with us every step of the way.
The food - the food was seriously the best food I could have asked for. The chef is absolutely a man of talent.
All my guests were so impressed with the whole night and were so thrilled about how wonderful everyone at the hotel was!
Choosing the Grand Hotel will definitely not disappoint
