It was a perfect day
Just a message to thank you so much for all your help with my daughter’s wedding on 20th August. It was a perfect day and most of that was down to The Grand. The room, food and service was excellent and the whole experience was something to treasure, especially for Mollie. It was a shame I didn't get to thank you on the day and that you didn't get to see how happy you made a very special couple. Thank you so much

We can’t thank you enough
We wanted to say a huge thank you to you & all of the staff who contributed to our wonderful day on Saturday. The service was exceptional, all our guests commented on how wonderful the venue and staff were. We can’t thank you enough. Following our tasting we had really high expectations of the food and it was delicious on the day, so were the canapés and evening food. Please do pass on our thanks to Elvis, who was across every potential issue, had clear line of sight of the whole day and made it run without a hitch. We all joked that we need an Elvis in our lives and can’t praise him enough. Thank you once again for delivering our wonderful day. We had a great time. I’m certain that our guests now have a wonderful view of your hotel & will be returning soon.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Luxurious, Tasteful, Indulgent, Inspiring. All things Grand.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

The Grand Staircase is a gorgeous and pivotal location for your couple and guest photos. Lovingly restored with rich detail, our Grand Staircase is the centrepiece of the hotel, which both you, your guests and photographer, will love. Picture this, an overhead shot of our spiralling Grand Staircase, you both lovingly hand in hand as you descend. Elegance could never look so easy.

What’s your favourite canapé?

Tough choice! Must say the Pork Belly & Mushroom arancini canapés go down a treat.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

My favourite midnight snack, or should I say Charcuterie spread, is of Cheeses', savoury crackers and chutney dips. For a treat away from home, I like to order our Cheese and Charcuterie Board from our Room Service menu, accompanying with Crispy Sourdough, Grapes and Pickles. Available all day for overnight guests, because why should treats be saved until midnight?

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Our Grand Hotel is full of period character with original Victorian architecture and marble detailing. Beautifully restored with complimenting Arts from the history that roamed our walls since 1879. Interior design featured throughout the hotel and in every direction. There is no other Grand Hotel Birmingham.
