About The Grand Hotel
The Grand Hotel's five star reputation for grandeur and elegance is immediately apparent on arrival in the Great Hall with its impressive marble colonnade, welcoming fire and fine galleries. Many of the 152 rooms and suites enjoy panoramic sea views, all individually designed and luxuriously furbished. There is an impressive range of function rooms in which to celebrate (3 of which are licensed for civil ceremonies) whether you are planning a lavish banquet for upto 200 guests or an intimate celebration with close family and friends - we understand that every wedding is unique. Inspired menus created by award-winning chefs in two restaurants, wines from outstanding cellars and for the energetic, The Grand boasts its own health club with an indoor (as well as heated outdoor) pool, fully equiped gym, sauna and solarium, steam room, 8 treatment rooms and snooker room for fun and relaxation. During the summer you can enjoy lunch, snacks and drinks on the Chatsworth Terrace overlooking the pool and sea beyond, and walk along the beachside promenade directly opposite this majestic hotel.

Heidi, married at The Grand Feburary 2018

“The whole day was amazing. It was the best day of my life, I felt like royalty. The ceremony was in the Arundel room, which was beautifully presented and made the ceremony very intimate. We chose the magnificent Princes room the grandeur of the room and the ability to fit one banquet table for all the guests and we chose The Compton Ballroom for our evening as it is the perfect setting for an elegant evening celebration with room for a band and a dance floor. I just kept thinking, I've been a princess for the last two days. The staff at The Grand were lovely and the food was outstanding.

I got married at the Grand Hotel on the 8th June 2019, after 2 and a half years of planning! I firstly want to thank Melissa and Stella from the Wedding events team for ensuring that our day went smoothly from start to finish. Their planning and attention to detail was spot on.
Our day was amazing and that was mainly due to the staff. They were so attentive and helpful and their service was excellent.
In regards to the room we stayed in, we had a master suite on the night of the wedding and it was huge. I have never stayed in such an amazing room like that before. We are already planning to go back and stay for our one year anniversary next year!
We had the most incredible day and thats all thanks to the brilliant staff at the Grand Hotel. They made the happiest day of our life even more special by their attentiveness and fantastic service.

Just a quick note to say how impressed Lewis and I were on the run-up to and during our big day. We asked a lot and I am thrilled to say that you exceeded our expectations. Every single member of staff I met was friendly, absolutley genuine and clearly proud to be a member of your team. Mr Webley should be proud of each and every one of you too. Thank you for making the best day of our lives, I hope, the best of all our guests too. The Grand has left an indelible mark on our hearts, thank you.

Our wedding was a long time in the planning and we liaised with three professionals at The Grand during that time; Gabrielle, Melissa and Stella at the end. Initially we were concerned that this might affect continuity in the planning but nothing could have been further from the truth – all three were excellent. We have to especially mention Stella who was our point of contact in the three months leading up to our day (and was even there on the day itself). Stella was well organised, an outstanding communicator and had superb attention to detail. Planning a wedding has a lot of moving parts and potential pitfalls but she really took the stress out of the whole process. Every single member of staff worked tirelessly to make us, and our guests , completely welcome. The standard of the food for the wedding breakfast and evening buffet was superb. We'd also like to mention how efficient and unobtrusive the serving staff were – they were choreographed with military precision and all our party were served with hot food within minutes of each other. At the end of the day we misplaced something which was eventually recovered with the help of the staff – who couldn't have been more efficient or helpful. We have no hesitation in recommending The Grand to anyone who wants to marry in spectacular surroundings whilst being treated with the highest standards of efficiency, courtesy and outstanding professionalism.

The service of the hotel was amazing. They did everything in their power to ensure us and our guests were always happy. Even when there were mistakes they handled them in the most professional way and went above and beyond to put them right. Billie-Jo was amazing and worked hard to ensure everything went as perfectly as possible.

Paul Marshall

We were looked after superbly and although we were only a small party we were made to feel very special. I can’t fault the day and you even supplied the weather.

Sophie Levoi

We had a fantastic wedding day at The Grand Hotel. We were made to feel very special by everyone in the hotel.

We cannot thank Melissa, Stella and Megan enough for looking after us so well. Nothing was too much trouble and the ladies honoured all of our requests and treated our wedding day (and lead up to it) with high priority.

We feel lucky to have chosen a venue who is considerate of their guests, and who does not treat their venue as a wedding conveyor belt. Thank you for making our wedding day so amazing!

From the moment we viewed The Grand Hotel, we knew it was the perfect venue for our wedding. From the very beginning, the events team were incredible and accommodated every wish and suggestion we made. Both Melissa and Stella were fantastic with the planning and were always very responsive to emails and happy to arrange meetings with us. Stella ensured everything came together perfectly in the run up by speaking to all our suppliers and answering any last minute questions that arose, even meeting with us the day before. On the day itself, Megan made everything run smoothly so we didn’t have to worry about a thing and could fully enjoy every moment. The food for both our wedding breakfast and the evening reception was fantastic. The chef put together a custom made menu for the evening according to our wishes and the guests loved it. The wedding breakfast tasting was a wonderful experience and the chef even came out to discuss the menu with us. The suite we stayed in was beautiful and the staff on reception, concierge and the spa were fantastic throughout. Thank you for bringing our dream wedding to reality! We will definitely be returning to celebrate our anniversary.
