Our perfect wedding at a perfect wedding venue.

Want to say a massive thank you to Mark and all of his team for ensuring that we had the perfect wedding. We got married at Cumbria Grand Hotel last Sunday on 4th August. The Cumbria Grand is the perfect setting to get married. The ballroom which the hotel has is a gem, we had our ceremony, wedding meal and evening reception all in the ballroom. The ceremony itself was fantastic the ballroom looked beautiful. We had around 60 day guests and 100 guests in total at night. Mark and his team made it look easy catering for us. The food in the afternoon was exceptional, our guests could pick between 3 starters, mains and deserts. This went down really well with our guests the 3 choice menu. Nothing was too much trouble for Mark and His team, a guest who had gluten intolerance was easily catered for. The evening food was also fantastic, bacon butties, burgers, chips, wedges and sweet potato fries as well as chicken nuggets. All really tasty and we were really well catered for. The magnificent size of the ballroom meant that there was plenty of seating for our 100 guests in the evening and still plenty of dance floor room left. The hotel has 124 rooms so no problem for guests travelling and wanting to stay over. The majority of our guests stayed over an enjoyed their stay. The hotel itself is beautiful and has lots of Victorian character. If you are looking at getting married the Cumbria Grand is a must.”

“Having just spent a wonderful few days here with friends for a wedding I have to say there’s something special about this place. It’s the combination of charm and grandeur but with down to earth exceptional service given by all the team. A stunning location and room to find your own cosy place to have a coffee or glass of fizz. With regards the actual wedding I can’t comment on everything the team did to make sure it was perfect if I did the review would be too long. They really excelled in every way.”

I cannot recommend this Hotel enough if you are planning a wedding. Mark Ridley the manager was excellent helping coordinate and organise the wedding from start to finish. The venue was stunning, the wedding was held in the beautiful Victorian ballroom and looked amazing once decorated for the ceremony. The food was excellent, I must praise the chef and his staff for the delicious hot food which was served out quickly and efficiently. All the staff were amazing and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We had guests travelling from all over the country and there was plenty of rooms to accommodate everybody. The bedrooms are spacious and spotlessly clean, again down to an excellent staffing team. Highly recommended.
