Excellent service

By Mr & Mrs Lewins, on 12 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 28 Oct 2016

Excellent service from the first enquiry right through to us checking out. What more can I say, nothing was a problem to the staff from the smallest detail right through to ensuring that they took the strain on the day (not that there was any as they were there checking all went smoothly). The food was excellent, all our guests have commented on the fabulous food and fantastic portion size. Every member of staff deserves recognition for how special they made us feel. Choice at breakfast was fantastic - something for everyone and if it wasn't out for you they did their best to get it for you. Duncan Bannatyne you should be very proud of your staff - they are a fantastic bunch of people who helped to make our wedding very special. Thank you all very much.

We cannot recommend this Hotel highly enough
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Keay, on 12 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 16 Sep 2016

We recently got married at this venue and have to say how amazing all of the team are. We were made to feel like we the only couple getting married there this year and absolutely nothing was too much trouble. All of the staff worked so hard to make sure our day was perfect for us. The rooms are lovely and the food has always been fantastic every time we have been and they certainly pulled it out of the bag on our wedding day. The roast beef was to die for. We had so many lovely comments from our guests about the wedding breakfast food and also the evening buffet too and how lovely and helpful all the staff are. We cannot recommend this Hotel highly enough. You are a credit to yourselves and to Lucy the lovely manager. We can't wait to see you all again soon.

Ideal wedding reception
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Smith, on 12 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 14 Aug 2016

After getting married abroad, my new wife and I recently returned home and enjoyed the ideal wedding reception at Bannatynes Hotel in Darlington. We stayed for 2 nights in a very nice deluxe room, and hosted a reception for 50 people on the Sunday afternoon and evening in the Wilbur Suite. This had been planned for some time, with the help of wedding coordinator Jade. The reception went like clockwork, and well run by the very efficient supervisor Alex. Our 3 course meal was top quality, and thoroughly enjoyed by our guests, many of which also enjoyed staying overnight in the hotel. All of the staff that we met were friendly and welcoming. This is a well ran, lovely hotel in a good location in our opinion. Overall an excellent wedding reception, and a perfect weekend. We would certainly recommend Bannatynes for similar events!

The whole day ran so smoothly

By Mr & Mrs Clough, on 12 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 25 Jun 2016

We have always enjoyed fabulous meals & friendly service at Bannatynes, Darlington. It wasn't a difficult decision to have our wedding at the hotel. The day was perfect from start to finish, the venue looked amazing, hotel was spotless, staff were extremely helpful and friendly as usual and everyone commented on the fabulous food. We couldn't have asked anything more. The whole day ran so smoothly, due to the highly professional staff and impeccable planning from the hotel. All our guests have commented it was the best wedding they have ever attended. Overall feedback was they didn't like to call the Bannatynes team 'staff', as it felt like being with friends.

We got married here on 20th June and i could write an essay on here about how amazing the staff are! From booking right through to the day was faultless Jade and Alex are brilliant at keeping everything to plan and we had the most amazing day - but as well as Alex keeping us right on the day all the staff be it reception bar or waiting were brilliant.

Perfect wedding
Venue Service

By Natalie & Daley, on 12 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 06 Apr 2015

I don't know where to even start to try to explain just how amazing the hotel and the staff were for my wedding (they always are amazing mind as I've visited the hotel many a time). They provided myself and my Husband with the most perfect wedding that was beyond even our dreams. The grounds are stunning for photographs both inside and out. The food was faultless and all of our guests commented on the quality. I just cannot fault it at all and it is a day we will treasure, for the rest of our lives. Thanks to each and every member of staff who played a part in our day.
