The conference & Events manager (Sharon) was always helpful, putting both of us at ease. All of her team were outstanding. Food was top class. The only moan would be more staff on the bar at the weekend. Thanks again to you Sharon & your team.

Fantastic customer service for our guests

By Ros and Rob Anderson, on 17 Apr 2007

We thoroughly enjoyed our wedding day which was largely down to the staff at the Marks Tey Hotel. It was very important to us that our guests enjoyed the day. Many of those we spoke to had only positive comments about the venue. They commented on the excellent service they received throughout the day and especially at dinner. They felt the day was very well organised and ran so smoothly, they could not fault it. As the bride it was reassuring to have several meetings leading up to the day and have a very accommodating events co-ordinator whose main interest was the bride and groom. Thank you very much for making our day so special.
