About The Grand Hotel - Lounges & Terraces
Welcome to one of the most famous hotel lounges - The BBC chose the Great Hall for their weekly broadcast 'Grand Hotel' featuring the hotel's Orchestra before the Second World War and the acoustics were said to be 'unmatched'.
Outside, of course, our guests are welcome to sample the delights of alfresco dining with tables and chairs set up on the Chatsworth Terrace, overlooking the pool.
The take away afternoon tea was for my grandparents 60th wedding anniversary and was lovely. Thankyou.
Fabulous takeaway afternoon tea, highly recommend.
Ordered an afternoon tea to take away. Service was excellent, order was ready on time and afternoon tea was enjoyed
Thank you so much. You provided a really wonderful treat for my Mum and Dad for Mother's Day, especially as we couldn't be with them. They were just so pleased with how fresh and tasty everything was and the variety of sandwiches and cakes. They really enjoyed the tea provided and the scones. They loved the presentation too, Mum said she felt like she was in First Class! Your booking system was really easy to use and collection was very smooth. Thank you again for making their day so special.
This was a birthday present for my mother’s birthday. The food looked really elegant and delicious and my parents comments were very positive. The take away box was strong and durable, so everything arrived in perfection condition. My only negative point, is that I didn’t realise the order must be 48 hours or more in advance (I appreciate the kitchen needs to know). As I was booking it and had the computer window open, the 5 o’clock deadline past and my order was not taken as I was literally seconds too late. So I rang reception within a couple of minutes of this happening to say I had just missed it and wondered if I could still place an order (as it was for a birthday and ideally the correct day was important), to just be told ‘no’. Which seemed quite inflexible and absolutely no attempt to see if they could try and add it. So they had it a day late, but still enjoyed it. I will recommend it to others and will order another two this week for my husband’s birthday. Can’t comment on the atmosphere (so just one star). Despite the not very helpful receptionist, the food was ready on the dot and a very smiley lady brought it to my car.
The food was amazing, scones were very light and the pastries lovely. I could have done with a few more sandwiches they were so nice! However we ordered vanilla milkshakes and strawberry were provided so the children didn't drink them which was a shame. (this was a takeaway Mothers Day afternoon tea)
Thank you so much, my parents were really happy with their takeaway Afternoon Teas and will definitely order again.
Excellent take away afternoon tea
The take away afternoon tea was absolutely lovely. Highly recommended
The takeaway afternoon tea exceeded my expectations completely. Loved how it was laid out etc... Only grumble was the breakfast tea, I would've been nice to have had a choice of the ones listed on offer.
Very festive feel and highly recommended
Not too keen on the sandwiches - quite boring to be honest. The setting was gorgeous & the waitress was lovely. Would have been nicer if there was Christmas songs being played in the background.
Service is most important and it was great
A perfect way to enjoy a festive afternoon tea. We felt safe and relaxed in a beautiful Christmas setting. This is one of many visits to the Grand, the staff go beyond every time. The sandwiches so dainty, scones delicious and light, cakes wonderfully presented.
Excellent service, beautiful surroundings and the food was top quality
Fantastic afternoon tea and overnight stay! Enjoyed every moment in the classic luxurious surroundings. Fantastic service. Highly recommend and will be coming again.
Absolutely fabulous day. Chris the health club manager went out of his way to help organise our spa day in difficult circumstances, and all of the other staff were just as fantastic. Thankyou!
A lovely special afternoon tea
Very nice time
We found the whole experience very restful and enjoyable and will certainly be back.
We both felt pampered. Wonderful atmosphere. Thank you
Very festive atmosphere and beautiful decorations. Staff were efficient t and professional
60th bday celebration. It needed to be special and, my goodness, it was! The table in front of the fire, the friendly & attentive service, the food (amazingly light scones) - all was perfect. Thank you to all the team.
Beautiful hotel and very pleasant staff. Was a little disappointed with the sandwich selection as very meagre fillings. The scones, however, were excellent and best we have ever had. Amazing pair of enormous Christmas trees really set the scene. Not sure about the fake flames in fireplace though!
