My partner and I recently had our engagement party in the Riverview Room and it could not have been better! From making our first enquiry, to the moment the party ended, communication with The Grand Hotel was flawless. We got to decorate the room as desired, and staff were incredibly attentive with our guests! The food was delicious, and guests loved to hangout on the beautiful balcony. I could not recommend hosting event with the Grand Hotel enough!
My husband and I hosted our wedding reception in the Riverview room, and it was amazing. The space had so much character and gave our guests the option of sitting on the balcony, or inside. The staff were fantastic leading up to the reception and on the day; their communication was clear and they helped answer any queries I had. They were also very flexible with dietary requirements, which is always a plus! Our guests had a lovely night - we're still getting comments on how perfect the space was. I highly recommend Functions at the Grand 🙂
Nicole is amazing at arranging all the finer details - our event at "Next Door" was so fun and stress free. Food is delicious!
I recently held my son Josh's 21st in the Federation room. The space had been recently renovated and we loved the new decor. It was the perfect size for our 80 guests and lovely balcony was an added bonus. Amazing food and plenty of it , all our guest commented on how good the food was. The staff were lovely and very helpful specially Gemma and Nicole who were in charge of making sure everything ran smoothly. Highly recommend and I would definitely hold another function here in the future. Thank-you.
Can't recommend having a function at The Grand highly enough! From the very first visit Nicole was warm and so helpful. The booking process was easy and all communication in the lead up to our engagement party was prompt and professional. Nicole was only too happy to help in anyway she could. On the night all our guests remarked on how wonderful the venue, it's staff and the food was, and we couldn't have agreed more.
I recently held my 30th in the beautiful Next Door space. Everything was absolutely perfect! The staff were amazing in the lead up and very quick to respond to all my questions. The team on the night were so friendly and easy going. The food was incredible and there was so much variety for people to enjoy. Highly recommend! Can’t wait to plan my next event here.
We had my husbands 50th birthday party here at the Grand in their Federation Room upstairs. Everything was absolutely brilliant! We were so impressed. The food was delicious and plentiful, the staff were exceptional - professional, friendly and attentive. It all ran like a well oiled machine, and nothing was too much trouble. Thanks to Nicole, our event coordinator, and please pass on our thanks to all the staff who were on on the night. They were fantastic and lovely, as was the driver of the courtesy bus that dropped us home on the spur of the moment! I would highly recommend Functions at the Grand for your special occasion!
Seriously cannot recommend the Grand enough. We had our function in the Riverview room and it was incredible. So many people commented on how good the venue was and how amazing the food was. The outdoor alfresco is also amazing and still useable in weather conditions. The staff were so incredibly friendly and helpful and I can’t thank the team enough for making our night so special.
Thanks for making my 40th Birthday everything i wanted it to be. The venue was great and all the staff were very helpful arong the way with anything i needed.
