One of the best days of our lives
Venue Service

By Catherine & Michael Tooley, on 17 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Sep 2018

The venue was beautifully decorated and to how we wanted it, if not better than we expected it to look. The service from all the staff we meet was superb. The lady on reception I don't know her name she has an American accent she was absolutely lovely and tried to do everything we had asked for. Tom I can't praise enough he was brilliant throughout the full day kept me well informed and is an absolute credit to the hotel, I can't thank him enough for the full day and how well went. The food was exceptional and all our guests commented on how lovely it all was!! Beautifully prepared and served absolutely brilliant. The DJ was brilliant and involved all the guests and made sure all requests were played he was very good. We absolutely had a wonderful amazing day one of the best days of our lives.

Honestly cant thankyou enough!

The food was beautiful, I had a lot of guests coming and telling me how nice their meal was. We really appreciate how much effort went into organising the gluten free meals too. The bedrooms were clean & well presented - especially the family room that myself and the bridesmaids stayed in on the Friday night was a bright open room with lots of light perfect for getting our hair and makeup done in the morning. We felt the day ran very smoothly, Amber made me feel at ease, and her and the managers had everything under control and I didn’t have to worry about anything. The functions rooms both looked great, the ceiling decoration that was in the Budworth really transforms it. The Skelton room looked lovely for the ceremony, the room was very light and I felt that it was just the right size for the amount of guests we had. The hog roast was lovely. The jacket potatoes, salad, coleslaw, stuffing, apple sauce and pork crackling were really nice too. It was exactly what we wanted. When I arrived on the Friday the person on reception already knew my name which sounds like a small detail but it was a nice touch. Last but not least we could not have asked for a more friendly, helpful wedding coordinator. Amber made my life a lot easier planning and organising anything I needed her to. Amber was very imaginative with ideas of what we could do and she had lots of good advice of where to go for flowers, DJ, cake, decorations, etc. She also made me very calm leading up to and on the day. I knew she had everything under control and I didn’t have to stress out about a single thing. Honestly can’t thank her enough!

Just perfect, a day that I will never forget

I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding planner - Amber was fantastic, she kept in touch with us all the time and dealt with anything that we threw at her. We decided to have clay pigeon shooting on between the ceremony and wedding breakfast all of which wouldn’t have been possible if Amber hadn’t helped us. We thought it may not be possible to run this because of the weather however Amber was our fairy godmother and with a swish of her magic she had spoken to the laser clay company and had another function room ready for us to use with the indoor system. Amber even stayed late on the Friday night so I could have a run through with my music! On the day she stayed calm made sure we were all ok and that everything we needed was there. She made sure that everything was organised so there was no hanging around and everything ran smoothly. Castle Inn as a venue is just magical. The Budworth suite was so spacious and decorated better than I could have ever imagined it looked beautiful. All the stressful parts had been taken away which made our experience even more enjoyable. The Food was delicious, Castle inn were even able to source celiac food for the groom , the staff were quick at serving , extremely helpful and polite. Overall I would not have wanted to have my wedding anywhere else and there is not one thing I would change. Once again none of this would have been possible without Amber she was just fantastic I wouldn't have asked for any other person to plan our wedding as she made it just perfect, a day that I will never forget!

The venue as a whole is amazing

By Bridie & Niel, on 13 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Apr 2017

When me and my husband went for our wedding show around at the castle Inn it was one of three places we had arranged to go and see, we never bothered going good to the other two! As soon as we walked in the castle Inn we knew that was the place we wanted to have our wedding! From the moment we met Amber we knew the biggest day of our lives was in good hands. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble and Amber offered us ideas I had not thought of which just added to making the day even more wonderful. Even when I turned into bridezilla Amber managed to reassure me and keep me calm! The venue as a whole is amazing, the grounds where lovely for photos but the actual function room looked so beautiful on the day I couldn't have even imagined it. Also as the wedding party where mainly from Keswick and Workington it was a great Central location too! The wedding day went so smoothly and well organised, and all our guests couldn't compliment the food enough, the midnight munchies where a great hit especially after a few drinks! My only complaint is that it went too quick, can we do it all again please! Amber and her team are first class I couldn't praise them and thank them enough 10/10 .
