This is a late review as we got married last October 2012. I have to say without a doubt this hotel is perfect in everyway. While we had been searching for a venue we were getting disheartened by the horrible sales pitches we were getting everywhere else. We wanted the reception, meal and party all under one roof.
As soon as we walked Into the reception area my husband and I looked at each other we had found our venue. We fell in love with the decor and the feeling of the hotel we also can't praise the wedding coordinator enough who went over every tiny detail and put up with me phoning every week in lead up to our wedding. They couldn't do enough for us.
The day itself was perfect the only slight grumble was I couldn't hear my wedding music it wasn't loud enough. The food was second to none and all our guests commented on it throughout the day and the buffet in the evening was perfect too. It was really good value for money and our parents paid for us to stay in the room at the very top of the hotel on our wedding night ( I stayed with my bridesmaids in the same room on our wedding eve and woke up to amazing views and calm while having my hair and makeup done.
Our wedding day was simply perfect and our guests seven months on are still saying its the best wedding they have ever been too. The wedding photos came out beautiful because of the surroundings we were in.
If you are looking for a wedding venue please visit the grand it's simply stunning we had three different rooms for our day, the one we got married in. The ballroom for our wedding breakfast and the keppels bar for exclusive use for our party and disco. So it didn't feel at all stuffy as if you were confined to one room all day.
We are planning to come back for our one year anniversary in October for dinner and to stay the night and we simply can't wait.
