Dear Andrea & Jade
We would like to thank you both so much for the effort that was made into making Catherine and Andrew's wedding evening so special. The attention to detail was amazing, we loved the flowers and the food was lovely. Andrea, you were incredible on the actual evening, working tirelessly in the background to make everything perfect, and it was. Would definitely recommend, thank you so much.

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
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
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.
By Mr & Mrs Robinson, on 12 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 30 Dec 2015
Please can I thank the team at Bannatynes for providing an outstanding service to me and my groom and our guests for our wedding venue. Receptionists (sorry I cannot remember your names) were fantastic. Jade event organiser and our toast master Alex were just fantastic as well. My day went perfectly smoothly. The food was delivered to my guests expertly and it was piping hot. Nothing was too much trouble for the team, and they helped me with any request or query that met us on the day. We were attended too and nothing was too much trouble for Bannatynes amazing team, so just want to say we can recommend Bannatynes of you are thinking of a wedding venue in Darlington I can strongly recommend Bannatynes to deliver the perfect day.

I cannot emphasise how amazing our day was. The planning of the day was made so easy thanks to Jade. Her ideas and helpful input really helped us plan our perfect day. The day ran so smoothly thanks to Alex, our toastmaster and Lucy, the general manager. All of our guests have commented on the food, the staff and the surroundings and how fantastic they all were.
We had the best day ever thank you all so much
By Jordan & Philip, on 12 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 20 Jun 2015
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.
A perfect day
By Marie & Araz, on 12 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 17 Apr 2015
Thank you so much for a simply unforgettable wedding at your hotel. The day was perfect, everything we had ever hoped for and we can’t thank all of the staff enough for all of the support and help we received before, and on our Wedding day. You all do such a fantastic job. Special thanks to Jade who did a fantastic job of coordinating all of our wedding requirements. Fantastic Venue, Lovely food and Excellent service. Our Wedding weekend here will be remembered not only by us but also by all of our friends and family who also thought it was a perfect day.
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.
