What our clients say about us

Thank you for your support and advice during the financial due diligence. I was impressed with your ability to pick up quickly the accounting complexity of our group. The information you produced was of great value and will become an important foundation on how the business will report in the future. You also brought a bright team with you – an important factor in us getting over the line. I have no hesitation in recommending you to others, or working with you again.

Simon Weeks CFO, Cruise and Maritime Voyages Limited

It was a difficult decision to sell, but Warwick Hotels and Resorts is the right company at the right time in this highly competitive London market. I see this as only positive for all concerned. We're thankful to the Grant Thornton team for its help and support throughout this journey.
