We had our wedding at the abode on Saturday and wow what an amazing day it was. From the start Ramona made the planning and organising of the day so easy and fun and the day was certainly no disappointment. The hotel staff were absolutely amazing and so helpful. Monica who led the day was absolutely brilliant, she couldn't have done anymore and she made the day run like clockwork and made my husband and I feel so special. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for a small intimate wedding like we had, absolutely perfect and and incredible day. Thank you to everyone who was involved in our day.

Amazing location - Amazing hotel!
