Gluten free
Venue Service

By Terri Devine, on 17 May 2016

I attended a friend's wedding recception of 16 April 2016. The food offering was of an afternoon tea. if you are gluten intolerant then this can be a nightmare and so I contacted the hotel before the day. I was connected to the Head Chef who asked me what I would like instead and he would prepare it. i said that I would like something that looked as much like the afternoon tea that the other guests were having as possible. i was so pleased with the goodies that were presented to me at the table and also found that a plate was prepared for me during the evening as well. First class service that I would recommend to anyone. Well done Holiday inn Orwell

Fantastic value for money wedding
Venue Service

By Gemma and Russ Davey, on 17 May 2016

The first time we met Tracey, we knew our wedding would be a success. We had our entire wedding here in March. The whole package was very reasonably priced and didn't disappoint us. The build up to the wedding was as smooth as silk, Tracey made everything easy. The whole day went very well. A few hiccups here and there but nothing that isn't common on every wedding day. There was more than enough food for everyone and it tasted great. We have nothing but great memories and we have the staff at Holiday Inn to thank for so much of them. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to have a great value for money wedding that won't disappoint.

Our Wedding Day!
Venue Service

By Terry and Lynda Seagroatt, on 17 May 2016

We had our wedding on the 30th April and cannot express how happy we were with the whole day. Charlotte and Laura were amazing and the Duty Managers, Stuart and Wayne could not have been more helpful. Everything ran like clockwork, the whole venue was beautifully presented, the food was amazing and we did not have to worry about anything. Special and massive thanks to Tracey who organised the whole day. You made the day very special for us both and we will never forget the fantastic time that our guests and we had on the day - thank you to everyone

Our day was brilliant thanks to all at Holiday Inn. They say ''Your day, your way'' on the brouchure and how right they were! Our package was perfect and at a great price, the food was brilliant and the service could not be faulted.

Professional staff who made our day special
Venue Service

By Vickie Shears, on 22 Feb 2002

From the moment we phoned the venue we felt as though the Courtyard valued our business and understood the stress of arranging a wedding day. The food was superb, served up by efficient friendly staff.After a good night's sleep we enjoyed a wonderful full English breakfast with the other guests that stayed before we made our way on honeymoon.
