Above and beyond
I just wanted to write an email to express our gratitude to Bea and Ian. They were absolutely amazing on the day and really went above and beyond for us to make sure we had a great day. We honestly could not have asked for two better people to coordinate our wedding and I just wanted to highlight that you really have two amazing employees in them at the Grand. The entire day they were so thoughtful, organised and made sure that we and our families had the most perfect day.

So many special memories
We were blown away by the venue and how well the team worked together on the day. Elvis was absolutely super at supporting me and Steve on the day. I did not know that we would have such an excellent team behind us and the help in the set up on the day was invaluable. You were super in the lead up to the day, you listened to us and worked with us to make the day as unique to us as possible and we felt in very safe hands. I am sad that it is all over but I have so many special memories!

Describe The Grand Hotel Birmingham in 5 adjectives

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

Where’s the best photo spot at The Grand Hotel Birmingham?

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 The Grand Hotel Birmingham 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.
