"We had our wedding at the Grosvenor Pulford Hotel & Spa on 25th March 2018 and had the most amazing day!
This venue is beautiful inside and out and the staff are incredible. Everyone was so friendly and professional and can’t do enough for you. They ensured the day went without a hitch and we received lots of amazing feedback from our guests about how fantastic the staff were and how beautiful the Hotel is.
Special mentions need to go to Alastair and his team on the day for their hard work and organisation. Alastair went out of his way to put our mind at ease the evening before the wedding and kept us updated as to what to expect throughout the day.
The wedding breakfast and evening buffet food was delicious and the rooms were fantastic.
I would also like to thank Nia and Emma in the events team who were brilliant in the run up to the wedding. Every query was answered quickly and efficiently and they were on top of everything at all times.
I can’t wait to go back to the hotel to see the new restaurant and we will definitely be back for an anniversary get away.
Thank you again Grosvenor Pulford for helping us to make out special day so perfect."
Carly Maiden – 25th March 2018
"Emma Simon was brilliant throughout the planning. Nothing was any trouble. Emma, Alastair, Aaron and George really made our day. They all welcomed us and made us feel so special for the whole weekend, not just our wedding day. The venue is perfect, the staff are perfect and the food is perfect. "
Rachel and Michael Burney – 16th March 2018
"From the day Emma Simon took over from the previous wedding co-ordinator Katherine, she was amazing. The whole day was beyond perfect, in our wildest dreams it couldn’t have gone as well as it did!
Alastair was amazing too, our family fell in love with him and everyone said how on it he was!
We have been inundated from our guests telling us that it was literally the best wedding they had ever been to. The food blew everyone away and then the service too, Alastair and the chef were unbelievable! The turn around and presentation of the room was amazing too, every time we came in after turn around it was like a totally different room. Everything was perfectly laid out and the room never looked short of perfect.
To say we want to do it all over again is an understatement!
Thank you, thank you thank you! The day was literally the happiest of our lives.
We will definitely be back to stay MANY times in the hotel – we want to move in!"
Andy and Jamie - Saturday 31st March 2018
"The Grosvenor Pulford Hotel was the first place we visited. We didn’t need to see anywhere else! Emma made everything perfect and easy to organise. Emma was available for any questions and helped with everything.
Alastair was well organised and made sure everything ran like clockwork.
The food was fantastic and so was the DJ! He played all the songs we requested.
The function suite was set up perfectly.
Aaron behind the Bar is a credit to the Hotel. Fantastic lad, helpful, good sense of humour and a pleasure to speak to. Nothing was too much trouble for him.
We had the best day ever – made perfect by your amazing staff, especially Emma and Aaron."
Ansley and Andy Reid - 3rd March 2018
"We had our wedding party at the Grosvenor Pulford on 2nd March after getting married in Canada in February and it was brilliant. In the lead up to the event it became apparent that there would be building work going on at the Hotel on our day, however they went above and beyond, particularly Nia to put us at ease and make our party extra special. On the day the staff were excellent particularly Alastair and the room looked amazing, as was the food. We stayed for 2 nights in room 51 which was fabulous and also used the Spa for treatments. Again, the spa staff were excellent and made us feel so special. We would highly recommend the Hotel for a Wedding."
Kirstin Macbeth and Jacob Roberts — 2nd March 2018
"Just a fabulous day all round! Rooms were amazing, the meal in Nelson’s Bar the night before was lovely and the service was excellent! Alastair made the whole Wedding day go smoothly, stress free and the attention to detail was excellent!
Laura and Andrew Farragher, 10th December 2017
"Emma was fantastic – cannot speak highly enough of her! We are a pretty disorganised couple so she had a challenge on her on her hands. But she was so helpful and made the planning of the wedding so much easier!
Alastair was an absolute diamond. He was so attentive and friendly – all the guests thought he was great as well. To keep the day running smoothly with a room full of ‘jocks’ – he needs a medal!
The food was phenomenal. There were some fussy eaters at the wedding and they all cleared their plates!
The waiters & waitresses were bang on - the food arrived so quickly and still hot. We really appreciated that. The Bar staff were also fantastic – I don’t know how much whisky they had to pour but they did a great job!!!
The function suite looked absolutely beautiful and so far beyond what I ever imagined.
The DJ was a great guy and played a cracking line up – the dance floor was hardly ever empty!
Thank you so much!"
Callum and Cally Vass – 1st September 2017
"We had the most incredible day on Thursday, everything was just absolutely perfect and we couldn’t have wanted any more for our wedding day.
From the moment I arrived at the Hotel, everything went so smoothly and that definitely made me relax.
Alastair was amazing throughout the whole day; both of you are an asset to the Grosvenor Pulford and we will have no qualms in recommending you to everyone!
All the little touches of professionalism were so evident from everyone working the wedding. It was literally seamless in everything from the collecting me from the room, arranging the guests, the service of the food, to refilling the sweet table, checking guests were all ok, just absolutely everything was flawless.
Thank you so much for the hug from you before I entered the ceremony room . I was so nervous and I can’t explain how lovely it was to see your smiling face!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
Shona and Craig – 14th September 201
"I wanted to say a huge thank you for making our wedding day the best day ever. You put so much effort and hard work in to ensuring the whole day went to plan without any hiccups at all and it did.
The room looked absolutely out of this world and the food was the best we have ever tasted so big compliments to the catering team.
Since putting on such a good day for us, two of our friends have finally booked their weddings now because they loved the way our day went.
I will recommend your outstanding venue and service to everyone I know."
Clare and Barry Davies – 16th September 2017
"Our dream as parents of the bride, was to give our daughter the day that she had wished for and the staff at the Grosvenor Pulford certainly delivered that. Their professionalism, expertise, organisational and customer service skills cannot be faulted.
As parents of the bride, we were quite emotional at times and nervous about the flow of the day and all that goes with it, but again your highly competent staff were so reassuring , putting us at ease throughout the whole day and evening."
Dawn and Darren Lloyd – 6th August 2017
"Emma Simon, Wedding coordinator was extremely efficient, professional and attentive throughout the whole process. An absolute credit to the Hotel . She made everything seem so smooth. Nothing at all was too much trouble and she always responded to emails on the same day. Again, Alastair is a credit to the Hotel. He helped the day go without a hitch! Everyone commented on the standard of food, the good food portions and taste. We even had ‘HAPPY BIRTHDAY’ written on the dessert plates for Nigel and 2 guests, it went down a treat!"
13th May 2017 – Louise and Nigel Goldsmith
"Emma Smith did brilliantly and was lovely, helping us to plan our Wedding Day. On the day itself, Alastair was brilliant too and we cannot commend him enough. The DJ (Simon) was ace! Very helpful and went above and beyond to accommodate our requests. Special thanks to Jade too, in Reception. You have it down to a tee. Thank you for keeping the high standards and doing a brilliant job!"
11th May 2017 – Adina and Dean Rutter
"We visited the Hotel for a birthday celebration, loved the hotel so much due to the amazing staff and booked our wedding as a result! Emma was fantastic, helpful, courteous and very professional throughout. The Master of Ceremonies on the day was fantastic too. The food was out of this world – massive thank you to the Chef! I work in customer service and your team far exceeded my expectations. You’ve impressed our guests that much that they are all looking to come back to stay for weekend breaks."
Natalie and Kate Beer - 24th March 2017
"Maurice showed us around the venue and made us feel very welcome. He was massively enthusiastic and funny! Katherine and Emma helped plan the big day and were both helpful and accommodating – nothing was too much trouble for them. We had an amazing day and our thanks go to ALL of the staff. Thanks, Em xxx"
Mr and Mrs Mayers - 8th April 2017
"Maurice literally made our day the best day ever! He really did an amazing job at remaining calm and offering solutions to ensure that we had an outdoor ceremony. Katherine was fantastic and more importantly patient. Everyone commented us on the food quality, it was great -in particular the hog roast at night time. The Big Beat did our evening party and they were fantastic! "
Liam and Kate Allmand — 13th August 2016
"We found Katherine to be professional & knowledgeable however more importantly she made us feel welcome, at east and nothing was too much trouble. She made us feel like friends, not just clients. The fact that we will miss our pre-wedding meetings exemplifies how outstanding she is in her role as wedding coordinator. Michael Roberts was also extremely attentive to all our needs. He even offered to entertain our young nephew to allow his parents to watch our first dance! The function suite looked amazing and super exceeded our expectations. Not only did we enter the room with gasps of WOW (!) – our guests were also blown away by the way the room was set up. "
Clare –Anne & Declan Fielding — 18th August 2016
"We booked our wedding on the day we viewed the Hotel. We fell in love with it! Katherine was brilliant and answered our endless emails efficiently on the run up to the day. On the day itself, Alastair was very welcoming from the minute we arrived in our wedding car! He made everything run to perfection. We felt like royalty from the minute we arrived the night before until we checked out 2 days later! All guests commented on how lovely the food was. The children, vegetarians and fussy adult (!) all had individual meals made for them on the day. Perfect venue, perfect staff! Would 100% recommend it!"
Mr & Mrs Lloyd—2nd September 2016
"Katherine was brilliant. She had less than 4 weeks to organise our day and the whole day was amazing. Maurice was fantastic too. His organisation of the day was perfect. He kept us informed every step of the way."
Dan and Lucy Woolfenden—3rd September 2016
"No other venue came close to the Grosvenor Pulford. The staff influenced our choice even more so as they were so helpful. I knew I wouldn’t be stressing out as they answered every question with help, advice and support. We had a PERFECT day!"
Hannah and Steven Orsler—9th September 2016
"This was the first venue we visited and fell in love with it as soon as we saw it. Great sized function rooms and bedrooms. Extremely well presented, clean and tidy. Katherine was great from start to finish, always responsive to emails and great when we met up to discuss everything. Everything went perfect on the day because Maurice, along with other staff members were so helpful. The rooms were beautifully presented and the lighting was fab!"
Laura and Jamie Moorcroft—8th October 2016
"Katherine and Emma were both excellent – knowledgeable and always true to their word. It was great to be recognised around the venue even without an appointment. On the day, Alastair went above and beyond to make our requests happen."
Lyndsey Butcher—8th October 2016
"All our guests complemented all the staff, especially Alastair on how organised & friendly the event was. Katherine was utterly faultless. Made us feel at ease, organised and seamless."
Mr & Mr Havenhand-Less, 27th August 2016
"The day was just perfect! The staff made everything so easy and enjoyable for us. We felt like royalty! It was everything we wished for and more!"
Esther & Matthew Metcalf, 24th June 2016
"Best day of our lives and this was down to the incredible organisation at the Grosvenor & their staff."
Katie & James Macgregor, 17th June 2016
"Maurice was so helpful & friendly, as was Alastair and Katherine was very calming especially while waiting to go into the ceremony….All the food was served quickly and hot. Brilliant quality….The Grosvenor Suite was exactly as I wanted, if not better….The DJ was very attentive and played all the music we asked….. We had a fabulous wedding and loved every second of it!"
Anna & Daniel Phillips— 20th May 2016
"We both loved this venue. We felt as though Gail never tried to oversell it as the venue spoke for itself. We instantly felt a calm & relaxing atmosphere and this is exactly what we were looking for….We visited the Hotel a lot during the build up to our wedding and every time we did, the professionalism of all the staff was exceptional. Nothing was ever a problem. We were always made to feel so welcome. All of our guests could not believe how beautiful the venue was. The service from the Hotel went above and beyond our expectations."
Mr & Mrs Eager—16th May 2016
"We cannot thank Katherine Green enough for her help and guidance and for responding to our ever changing needs on the lead up to the wedding day. The Grosvenor Pulford Hotel & Spa made this a lovely and magical day."
Gary Davies, father of the Bride—19th March 2016
"When I first enquired about getting married at the Hotel Gail was very helpful at sending me details very quickly. Gail was excellent at helping with every step of our planning. She was extremely organised and professional. Alastair went above and beyond our expectations on our wedding day. He was not only extremely attentive to us but also to all of our guests… He overheard that I wasn’t happy with what the florist had done on my tables before I got married but he corrected it for me before my guests saw. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Thank you for making our day perfect."
Amy & Adam Walton – 7.11.15
"The Hotel and it’s staff ensured we created the PERFECT day! How can you improve on perfect!? I only wish we could get married every day. We can’t thank you enough."
Jeff & Maria Nevitt – 31.12.15
"From day 1 Gail and Emma have always been there, even when we changed our minds a few times. Nothing was too much trouble. At every step of the Wedding day, Alastair was there, willing to lend a hand. We felt very well looked after. He even helped to chop up the maid of honour’s dinner when she was preoccupied with her 2 year old son. We heard nothing but positive comments about the food and we were even left a plate of food in our room for when the night ended. The function suite was stunning and exactly what we had hoped for. The dance floor was never empty all night so that speaks volumes. Simon was very friendly, helpful and approachable."
Hannah & Mark Wildbore – 30.05.2015
"Never in my wildest dreams did I think our Wedding day would be as fantastic as it was. We have been very regular visitors to the Hotel for many years and have always found the staff to be brilliant, friendly & helpful and on the day of our Wedding they lived up to their reputation spectacularly. I was also really impressed with the businesses recommended for the Wedding. The flowers from VIVID were absolutely beautiful and I cried when I saw then. The harpist Nerys was brilliant. What an absolutely lovely lady and so talented. The photographer and harpist kept telling me that even though they do a lot of work in other places, this is by far the best at organisation which I do believe is true."
Mr and Mrs Robinson – 19.06.2015
"Right from our first contact with Gail, the planning and organisation has been excellent and the service throughout the day was exemplary. Particularly worthy of note is Maurice whose attention to detail along with his organisation and management skills were a credit to himself and the Hotel. The team of serving staff did an excellent job even with the choice menu that we had offered guests. Everyone’s glasses were always kept full too. The food was to a very high standard in both taste and presentation and the function suite was beautifully decorated and arranged. All of our guests have been exceedingly complimentary about everything that the Grosvenor provided and the service they received. Planning and organising a wedding is a daunting task and one you hope will result in a day to remember. With the help, support and very high level of professionalism of all the Hotel staff involved in planning and running ours we had a perfect and memorable day that far exceeded our hopes and expectations."
Neil & Moya Geering – 20.06.2015
“In our opinion, the day could not have been any more perfect. Gail was always polite, friendly & professional. Maurice was the same and made the experience fun too. Both members of staff made our lead up completely stress free and all of our requests were met perfectly. All the food on the day was perfect. We had a menu choice for our wedding breakfast and each guest got exactly what they ordered. DJ Simon was phenomenal. We sent him a request list of what we wanted and he did that and more. He kept everyone up on their feet! A big, massive thank you to the Spa too, in particular Agnes for doing an amazing job on my make-up. Also to Sandra and Louise for all treatments the following day.”
Kevin & Rachel Myers
“We had viewed 6 other venues within the Chester area but we were made to feel at home the second we arrived at the Grosvenor Pulford. We fell in love with the hotel & grounds and the idea that we could have as big or as small a wedding as we liked. We felt our wedding was in total control from the initial meeting right up until the day. We were kept informed of everything and we never had to chase anything up. Gail’s knowledge and professionalism was outstanding. All staff were amazing at what they do. No stress, no mistakes, nothing to worry about. Everything and everybody were so calm and relaxed and this helps you enjoy the day more. The customer service, manners and attitudes were all focussed on us having an amazing day and nothing was too much trouble. “
Danielle & James Ellison
"We fell in love with the Grosvenor Pulford straight away. Gail and the rest of the team were always very helpful. The food was lovely and the Hotel took great care of our guests with special dietary requirements. The DJ did a great job of keeping everyone up on the dance floor and he didn’t play any cheesy music, at our request! The package we received was brilliant value for money. It was like we had paid tens of thousands of pounds. Fantastic service."
Amanda & John
"We were made to feel really important and such effort was made by all members of staff to ensure our afternoon/evening was perfect. We hadn’t looked anywhere else as we knew of the great service by word of mouth. We had a self-service buffet as opposed to a fixed menu and all of our guests loved it."
Michael & Jayne
“My daughter had her Wedding here on Saturday 1st February and it was perfect. All of the staff were friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Alex and Maurice who supervised the Wedding were so good to all of us. We were absolutely amazed at how smoothly everything went thanks to both of them. We couldn’t have imagined how special the whole day was going to be…. Jade who ran the Bar in the Grosvenor Suite was so busy and yet never stopped smiling and is a credit to the Hotel. Every member of staff we came in to contact with from chamber maids, kitchen staff, reception, spa and bar staff were fantastic.”
“Gail helped us to plan our day and was very informative, friendly and well organised. We also had a great Master of Ceremonies. Nothing was forgotten, everything looked perfect & all guests had a fantastic day. The photographs look amazing and we loved the Grosvenor Suite – private for all guests to enjoy each other’s company. We felt very at home and very happy with the entire experience. We would definitely recommend and can’t wait to come back to stay.”
Mr & Mrs Shenton
“Excellent customer service, nothing was too much trouble. All staff were professional and attentive and made our day extra special and run smoothly… Amazing value for money. We couldn’t fault any part of the day!”
Mr & Mrs Higginson
“The Grosvenor Pulford staff could not do enough for us. We were so pleased with them all. They made our special day extra special. Alastair was lovely even at my most stressful moments before the Civil Ceremony he calmed me down. The food was the best we have ever had and a lot of our guests have now started to go to the Grosvenor Pulford for Carvery on Sundays.”
Mr & Mrs Evans
