July 2016 “Perfect wedding”

For a venue in the Harrow/Watford area for around 50-60 guests I am sure that you could not top The Grim’s Dyke. We had our daughter’s wedding here – ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening disco – and everything ran like clockwork. Truthfully even though we had a couple of problems during the day the organising team just smoothed everything over – including rescuing the whole wedding party from the gardens when we had a very English summer downpour. The music room is a spectacular backdrop for the formal parts and the gardens are just stunning. I visited a number of time over months while planning the wedding and at every time the gardens were brimming with colour and were an absolute delight. Daniel Hunt-Cortes was our superb wedding organiser and Richard our duty manager on the day was a gem. I didn’t have to worry about anything – and could just focus on my guests. I am so so glad that we chose a Friday for the wedding and could then book this venue (nearly a year in advance) as it was simply peerless and worth every penny of the crystal package fee.

June 2016 “Amazing wedding venue”

“My husband and I” got married at Grim’s Dyke at the beginning of June and we couldn’t have been happier with our choice of venue.

First of all, the venue is absolutely stunning. If you’re after a traditional, sophisticated venue with amazing grounds, you can’t go wrong – go and see it! We had both the ceremony and the reception/ evening do there (in the music room) and we’ve had so many comments about what a beautiful place it is. If the weather is good (fortunately the rain that was forecast for our day didn’t materialise!), the grounds are wonderful – they give great opportunities for lovely wedding photos.

Then there was the food….wow, it was amazing (almost 2 months on, people are still talking about the lamb shank!). There was a large selection of dishes for us to choose from, we got to taste 2 starters/ mains/ desserts of our choice (plus 1 sorbet) at a menu tasting and we were really impressed with the food. I’m sure we’ll go back to the restaurant sometime for a meal.

The hotel has a list of recommended suppliers for weddings, e.g. florists, DJ, suit hire, make up artist, string quartet, photographer, chair covers etc. Where we could, we used people off this list and, without exception, they were all excellent.

Last, but absolutely by no means least, the staff at Grim’s Dyke are fantastic. It’s obviously a big job organising a wedding, but my main contact (Dani) was SO lovely to deal with and nothing was too much trouble for her. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with her (and actually, everyone else that we dealt with was lovely too!) – Dani even managed to keep me (relatively) calm on the morning of the wedding 🙂

Grim’s Dyke isn’t a cheap place to have a wedding, but compared to other places I looked at, you get decent value for your money (some other places were a very similar price, but nowhere near as nice!).

So overall, a massive thumbs up…and a huge thank you from us!!

May 2016 “Perfect day!”

Me and my husband celebrated our wedding at the Grimsdyke on 28th May, we booked it back in July last year we knew this was going to be our perfect venue it’s absolutely beautiful and so pretty when all the flowers start to bloom. We were dealing with Daniela Hunt Cortes for everything she couldn’t of been more helpful always being just at the end of the phone if we needed her, would reply to emails straight away, she must of got so many emails from me leading up to the wedding but was always so helpful. Me and my family stayed on the Friday night before and dined in the Gilbert’s restaurant that was lovely proper fine dining, even on a Friday there is a set menu, the only criticism I have is that on the fillet steak there is a £12 supplement charge in my personal opinion that’s a lot when the dish is on a set menu. I was in the Sullivan suite for both nights it’s such a gorgeous room so big and spacious perfect for all the bridal prep, it was very busy on the Saturday morning. Daniela came up to see me a few times checking I was all alright and I left getting the music room ready in all the staffs hands they did a brilliant job I couldn’t of been more pleased with how it all looked, our dream day was coming together perfectly. We had the most incredible wedding, the weather was very sunny, food absolutely delicious some friends have said its the best 3 courses they’ve had at a wedding. Chris and I were so chilled out as we knew what an amazing job everyone was doing for us at grimsdyke. I would definitely recommend grimsdyke for any potential bride and groom looking to have their wedding here you will absolutely love it.

April 2016 “5 star service”

Grim’s Dyke Hotel was most defiantly 5 star service for our wedding day. Everything was perfect, the food was wonderful, everything went smoothly with special thanks to Daniela, the wedding co-ordinator. The venue’s recommendations were excellent as well as we hired the photographer and DJ that they had suggested. Highly recommend.Mr and Mrs Wilson

April 2016 “We could not be happier”

We were so pleased how well Grim’s Dyke Hotel delivered to their word. The wedding co-ordinator, Daniela, was very attentive and available throughout, ensuring no-one another than our guests were within the area. The venue also provided us with the catering, the only suggestions that we would make was that the food was all flowing out from one end of the room, other than that we were surprised by the excellence of their food as we had selected an Asian fusion. When selecting our wedding venue we did not need to look elsewhere, I had seen this hotel 12-13 years ago and my heart was set on holding our celebration here, we could not be happier.

March 2016 “Fantastic!”

We chose Grim’s Dyke Hotel for our wedding, and it was fantastic, we could not have wished for anything better. They catered for 70 of our guests with all the food provided as this was included in the price, the venue was also decorated and set up for us which was one less thing to organise. We looked at a couple of wedding venues before selecting, but it was the character of Grim’s Dyke Hotel that won us over.

March 2016 “Amazing day!”

We held our wedding at the Grim’s Dyke on the 26th March 2016, everything about it was perfect! The Wedding co-ordinators Claire and Daniella are fabulous very easy to talk to and very helpful, they both made us feel very at ease. On the day of the wedding the staff on duty were amazing. Daniella was fab as was the duty manager Ann Marie. Everything was so well organised. The food was amazing. We definitely had the time of our lives. Highly recommend this hotel.

December 2015 “Thank you”

I cannot thank you and all the staff at the Grims Dyke enough for making our wedding day so special and memorable. You promised us it would be hassle free and you were certainly true to your word. I could not wish to pick out particular members of staff, as each and every one of you surpassed our expectations from your waiting/bar staff to your front of house receptionists and everybody else within the hotel no matter what part they played. You beautifully dealt with our idiosyncrasies and embraced our ceremony and Daniela, the icing on the cake, was your knock on our door 15 minutes before the ceremony to assist if necessary with our buttonholes. The food was gorgeous and very well received including the fish and chips!!

Daniela, we had a memorable and amazing day which was hugely down to the service that we have received from yourself, the duty manager Katie and all the staff at the hotel.

Peter and I only wish you and everybody at the hotel a huge thank you and a very merry Christmas and very best wishes for 2016.

With fondest regards.

Nigel and Peter

October 2015 “A wedding to remember”

We booked a civil ceremony and reception here. The staff were very friendly and helped us to organise the perfect wedding. We stayed the night before the wedding and enjoyed a meal at Gilbert’s restaurant, the food was good. The day of the wedding the staff could not do enough to help. Our guests had booked rooms and all commented on how wonderful the venue was.Mr and Mrs Hall

September 2015 “Dream wedding and awesome stay in this beautiful hotel”

We had a fantastic wedding celebration at Grims Dyke hotel. We and our guests stayed at the hotel for two nights. The hotel is beautiful, its surrounded by amazing gardens and there are some nice paths around to enjoy a walk. Nothing else around it, so it was perfect for us and just what we wanted, to get away from London and have a romantic and quiet time. The rooms were very confortable, clean and pretty. The beds were a bit tough and so were the pillows, but other than that we had absolutely no complaints. The breakfast was great. The hotel staff is awesome, at the reception, at the restaurant and so on, everyone was extremly friendly and accomodating. I even left some gold jewlery behind in my room and it was found and kept at the reception for me! Amazing! Our wedding was organized by Daniela Hunt and she was just great! The food was amazing, good wine and all the staff made us feel very special. It was better than we thought it would be!Mr and Mrs Lewis

September 2015 “A magical wedding!”

We celebrated our wedding at Grim’s Dyke on the 3rd September 2015 and for us, it was an absolutely magical day.

We live quite close to Grim’s Dyke and feel quite fortunate to have such a spectacular venue on our door step. It’s hard to believe that you’re still in a London borough. The house in all it’s grander is set within a backdrop of peaceful, beautiful, lush gardens surrounded by woodland. The gardens are maintained to a very high standard, which meant our photographer was able to get exceptional photographs outside of us enjoying our day.

We stayed in the Sullivan suite (which is in the main house) the night before the wedding and also on our wedding night. This is an incredible room and worth paying that bit extra for. We’ve stayed in many 4 and 5 star hotels around the world but none of which even come close to the sheer magnificence and prowse that this room exudes. The main feature, in my opinion, is the majestic four poster bed that sits in the vast expanse of this incredible room.
All the food served was cooked and presented to a high standard. We had dinner in the Gilbert restaurant the night before, as well as breakfast each morning. All of the food served during our wedding was also fantastic, from the canapés to the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet later on in the day and all our guests commented on the quality and sumptuousness of dishes served.

We felt that the entire experience was made even more perfect by the attentive and courteous staff that were there to assist at any opportunity. We were fortunate enough to have the professional experience and services of both John Parker and Daniela Hunt Cortes to assist us with the smooth running of the day and are most grateful to them for this. Morgan was also our dedicated waiter for the whole day and he too done a fantastic job!

August 2015 “The perfect day”

We had the most perfect day on Saturday 29th August 2015 at the Grim’s Dyke celebrating our wedding day!

From start to finish we were so well looked after, and this began long before the actual day itself. Meetings, phone calls and emails ensured all of our wishes were considered and built into the planning, and this certainly paid off. The day went off without a hitch, the whole venue working in perfect unison to ensure we could focus on enjoying the day with our guests, whilst room changes, entertainment, food and drink servings and refills carried on seamlessly in the background. A special shout out goes to John, Dani and Katie who made us feel so special all day – a great team!

The grounds are absolutely beautiful and look absolutely fantastic in all the photos. We were so lucky with the weather, but I also knew, had it rained, that the venue would have worked perfectly for us and our guests – a great confidence given the our great British weather – especially on August Bank Holiday weekend!!

I would highly recommend the Grim’s Dyke to anyone looking for the perfect English country wedding, and I can’t wait to return with my husband to enjoy a romantic break with the best memories ever.

Mr and Mrs Holloway

Thanks for everything.Mrs Wilcoxen

August 2015 – “Wedding”

We recently got married here, it was a no brainer for us as it is such a beautiful romantic place and we have been coming here for years. Our wedding planner was awesome and ensured the day ran smoothly and it was everything we hoped for. The staff were amazing and the food delicious. The rooms in the main house are stunning, especially the Sullivan suite! Everyone had a fantastic day! We can’t rate this place highly enough, even if it’s just for a dog walk or afternoon tea.Mr and Mrs Driver

August 2015

We celebrated our wedding in August 2015 at Grim’s Dyke and it was amazing! We felt really lucky to have found this jewel of a venue!

Everything went really well and they helped us a lot before and during our big day. The staff are all really nice, the food is top quality, the hotel rooms are all lovely (especially the bridal room!!) and the venue itself, with the gardens, is unbelievable in the sun!! We spent most of the day at the terrace outside but even if the weather didn’t allow it, I’m sure the guests would have had a good time inside too!! They were all very impressed and so were we.

Thank you Grim’s Dyke for making our special day even more special!!

The grounds are gorgeous, our bridal suite had a beautiful four poster bed and our champagne and strawberries were a great finishing touch.
