Special Wedding Day
Couldn't fault the staff at all, they were amazing and catered for not only our needs but all our guests and nothing was too much trouble. They all had smiles on their faces and made the day/evening. Can't thank them enough.

We had the most perfect day
We had the most perfect day, from start to finish we were looked after superbly and all our needs were met. We had so many compliments from our guests about our wedding breakfast food and service being outstanding with many saying it was the the best wedding food they had ever had. The service we all thought was impeccable, from the wedding breakfast to the end of the night where staff helped us up to our room with our bags. We were totally blown away to have been upgraded to a Suite which was such a treat to have a balcony and spacious room. Our toastmaster Andy put us at complete ease throughout the day and we were so grateful to have him keeping our guests to timely plans. We also can’t thank Lottie and the events team enough for all their preparations and hard work and for their commitment to making sure our day went smoothly. Wian-Marie was fabulous at greeting us when we arrived and we remember feeling so very welcome and at ease. Sammie was there overseeing that all went to plan during our evening reception, our guests loved the bar and the staff couldn’t have done enough for us all which we really appreciated also! Thank you again for everything

Speechless, just perfect!
What more can i say our experience was fantastic. The team, from booking in at reception, the concierges, the table layers, chef, servers throughout the day were tremendous and must be congratulated . Our wedding coordinator Lottie was amazing and everything went like clockwork so a huge thank you to them all we could not have asked for a better day.

Our Dream Wedding At The Grand Hotel, Eastbourne
Our wedding day was something like a dream and a lot of our guests told us it was one of the best Weddings they have been to. The day ran so smoothly and any issues were dealt with promptly and without question. I have had no end of comments from family and friends telling me how lovely the Grand Hotel is and in particular how kind and helpful all the staff were. Guests have told us stories about doormen, front of house team, porters, cleaners, kitchen staff, waiters/waitresses and of course the events team all being happy, helpful and making guests feel as special as we did. Oliver and I were treated so well from the start (way back in 2020) and that was part of the reason in choosing the Grand. Every time we visited, we were made to feel so special and we hoped our family and friends would feel similar. In particular Lottie has been a joy to work with over the last year or so. Always responded so politely and promptly and on meetings, and extremely kind, professional and happy. From mine and Oliver’s side, it hasn’t been stressful and a lot of that is due to knowing our day was completely safe in your hands. The Grand Hotel Eastbourne has become a special place to us and we look forward to visiting again in the future.
