If you're looking for the perfect background for an elegant and intimate wedding, there's nowhere better than these two very special hotels.
Malhotra Group PLC own some of Tyneside most unique and stylish venues, so it makes sense that when you’re looking for the perfect place to host your special day that the company would have some ideal locations.
And the good news is that they have two very special hotels which offer a range of wedding packages which can be adapted so that you can put your own personal stamp on the nuptials.
City centre wedding or celebration venues are often a challenge to find – until you look at the Grey Street Hotel. Right in the heart of Newcastle’s most historic street, it’s a brilliant location for anyone wanting to create a memorable occasion for the closest family and friends.
The hotel’s Monument Suite holds between 25 to 80 guests, so it’s the ideal choice for anyone who is looking for that special, intimate day with the wow factor.
And of course with 49 contemporary bedrooms on site, all of your guests can easily be accommodated – and will undoubtedly love the combination of the retained features of this historic building and all of the modern touches.
For stressed brides – or grooms for that matter – the City Retreat beauty salon and day spa is a great way to prepare for the big day and is also one of the hotel’s many brilliant features.
Just a mere three miles out of the city centre, you can enjoy the splendours of The Great North Hotel at Gosforth. This is a fantastic choice for anyone who wants to enjoy a brand new venue, as the hotel has just celebrated its first birthday – and is very eager to showcase its many attributes to those planning a wedding. Again the function room – the Ouseburn Suite – is perfect for those more intimate gatherings, as it can accommodate between 25 to 80 guests. Licensed for ceremonies and with its own bar, it’s a great choice for anyone who wants everything in one place.
With 64 bedrooms the party can continue long after the formalities are over. Both hotels have their own wedding packages which are flexible enough for the happy couple to add their own touches to ensure it is personalised for them. And of course at the heart of any event is the food – and the menus for both venues have something for everyone, with Grey Street Hotel also home to the award-winning Leila Lily’s, which has an AA rosette.
From exquisite versions of classic dishes to delicious canapes featuring flavours from around the globe to evening buffets which even have the option to include a taste of the North with hot stotties with a range of fillings – there is something for every palate. Marcella Swindell, Hotel Operations Manager, said the team were looking forward to showing off both venues.
”We have two very stylish, but very different, hotels which have lots to offer couples,” she said.
”Both are perfect for anyone wanting to make their day extra special, with all the personal touches you would expect to make a real impact, and all with an experienced team who can take all of the stresses away.
”We are very excited about showing anyone thinking of getting married what we have to offer and we are sure they’ll be delighted when they visit.
