As you can see from this email I am back at work and everything has returned to normal but I cannot forget what a wonderful time Keith and I had last week and how delighted we were with the arrangements for the wedding.
I wanted to write and thank you for everything you did and to compliment the smooth running of the day. Besides yourself all the staff were fantastic and went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our day and kept us informed of everything that was happening without any dramas or upsets.
We loved Donnington Manor and I am sure we will return in due course but meanwhile again, can I thank you for all the work you put in to making our day.

Hello Sarah, I would just like to thank you and the staff who made our daughters wedding day on Friday such a success.
Please thank everyone who was involved with us we are very appreciative of the hard work they did to make it so special, she wanted a relaxed day and you gave it to her.
The guests I have spoken to since Friday have all said what a lovely time they had, a very enjoyable day. You must thank the chef and staff for the meal they gave us - 3 of my girlfriends would like the bread recipe please -

Thank you very much indeed.
We and our guests felt very welcomed! It was just like receiving the guests at home! Everyone from the staff was helpful, friendly and amazing!!!!!! I haven't had that before in any of the countries/restaurants/hotels I was in.
We shall definitely recommend the location to our friends and use it ourselves for future occasions!
All the best to you all and lots of blessings

Perfect Wedding Day!
By Mr & Mrs Coleman, on 19 Jul 2012
We held our Wedding reception here in August 2011 in the up stairs function room, and were extremley pleased with the service, staff, value for money and venue as a whole.
Sarah was always on hand to answer any questions that we had and was great when it came to recommending the Dj, Flowerist and Photographer, thank you again for all your help!
Anish was equally as helpfull on our big itself, and he and his team really did make our day that extra bit special and go without any hitches even though we did arrive over a hour after we were meant to. Thank you again to you Anish and all the staff for everything you did.
The honeymoon suit that we had the night of the wedding and my Husband and two young Daughter stayed in the night before the wedding was amazing to say the least, It was clean, comfortable and very well furnished.
The wedding breakfast was wonderful, hot and everyone said that they enjoyed the whole meal which was a hugh relief to us :) The evening buffet was equally as good and there was so much of it that our guests ending up taking plates of it back to their rooms!
Breakfast the next morning was also good, and the staff were helpful then too.
We would recommend this hotel for other couple thinking of having there wedding receptions here. It is truely a beautiful venue and the old part of the building and garden really did make a back drop for our photos.
Would stay here time and time again, lovely hotel with helpful staff and management
Thank you again for a perfect Wedding day!

Wedding Day to Remember
By Ian Petherick, on 24 Oct 2011
We got married and had our reception at Donnington Manor on 27th August 2011 and can't praise the Hotel enough.
After looking around for Wedding venues, I was disappointed with many venues lack of enthusiasm and knowledge towards us and their venues, which didn't inspire confidence. Until we meet Ashish the deputy manager of Donnington Manor a thoroughly charming and welcoming chap who made us instantly feel at home. I knew this was where I wanted to get married. Our wedding planner Sarah was always on hand to answer any queries we had in the build up to our perfect day.
In fact all staff were always pleasant, welcoming and did everything we could have asked. We had a few last minute guests cancel and managed to get friends step in who were vegetarian. Having not had the chance to tell Donnington about this we were worried they would not be able to accomodate the last minute changes. But they were fantastic and managed to serve each guest with the same meal with very little warning, which we appreciated greatly.
Their resident DJ, was spot on with the music. After a meeting appeared to have understood exactly what we were looking for and had everyone up on the dance floor all night.
The food was good, rooms were clean and tidy and it was all for a very reasonable price.
All our family and friends have commented what a great day it was and what a picturesque venue. I would highly recommend to anyone considering choosing this as their wedding venue.
My wife and I had the best day of our lives on our perfect wedding day and Donnington Manor played a large part in that. I can't thank them enough.

Please forgive the very brief email as I am just finishing my last minute packing before the taxi arrives to take us to the airport.
We had the most wonderful and amazing wedding at Donnington and we can't thank you enough for everything you have done for us and all your wonderful staff. I will be sending a thank you letter once we return towards the end of the month but I just had to let you know how grateful we are.
Will be in touch.
Our very best wishes.

To Sarah and all the Team,
Thank you so much for all of the hard work that you put into making our day so special and perfect.
We really appreciate everything you did.
By Alison Gordon, on 19 May 2011
So, we are back from honeymoon, back to work, and back down to earth!!
We wanted to send you a message of thanks for the fantastic wedding the Donnington Manor provided for us. We had an absolutely amazing day, even better than we expected. The way Anoop and the team looked after us on the day was outstanding, I was taken aback actually, and so was Gordon. Everything was organised for us, lots of unexpected extra touches and the whole day was geared to making sure we had whatever we wanted. We didn’t have to think about any of the organisation ourselves. The room looked beautiful after all 3 changes it went through, and your suppliers did a great job, DJ included. Oh and the food was lovely! I think seamless would be a good description of how the day went.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your venue to anyone. It is a wonderful place to get married, with wonderful staff and service and the day was so special for us and our guests. Everyone tells us they had a lovely time and so did we. A very special day.
We’d like to especially thank you personally for all your help – you have been brilliant and made things so easy and happy for us.
As promised here’s a few pictures of the day including some of the hotel without us in. Feel free to use them as you see fit (let us know if you do!)
My daughters Wedding Sat 16th April 2011
By Jackie Maggs, on 04 May 2011
Dear Mr Cotman
I thought I would write to congratulate your staff on making my daughter’s wedding last Saturday a very happy and memorable day. Sarah has been very patient and helpful and we really are most grateful to her.
All the staff were very helpful and the room looked wonderful. Everything ran smoothly and on time, which I know was quite difficult as we held the wedding ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception in the same room. Anoop and his staff did a wonderful job and I hope you will pass on our thanks. The DJ was also very good, and everyone had a great time.
The food was excellent, and our compliments to the chef and his team. Unfortunately I didn’t eat much from the evening buffet as I was too full from the wonderful dinner, but I’m told it was very good!
I would have no hesitation in recommending your hotel to anyone looking for a wedding venue and we really are very grateful to you all for making Nicky and Darryl’s wedding day such a happy one. Please pass on our thanks to all concerned.
