This elegant Victorian wedding venue, Torquay's landmark hotel (and the sister one to the Abbey Sands Hotel; The Royal Beacon in Exmouth and The Falmouth Hotel), sits pride of place on the seafront. Steeped in history, it has retained many of its period features across its 132 individually styled bedrooms and is home to an AA rosette fine dining restaurant, 1881, and The Spa at the Grand. This tranquil spot uses organic and ethical Caudalie products, with manicures and pedicures using Jessica nail polishes and HiBrow and Lashbase treatments available. Spa packages include Total Time Out for Men, ideal for small stag groups, and the Hen Day Spa package. The Sheer Indulgence package for two includes a full afternoon tea, a Caudalie facial and a relaxing and nourishing body wrap. Ceremonies take place in a choice of stylish rooms including the Chatsworth ideal for small, intimate gatherings and the Cavendish Suite and the Devonshire.
We love... the superb sea views from the 1881 restaurant and the coastal-inspired menu including King Scallops and Locally Landed Lemon Sole Fillets.
