Hello Faye, We have just returned from our Honeymoon and I wanted to get in touch to say a massive thank you to you and the team at the Hotel for all the work put into our wedding day, in advance and on the day. Matthew and I had the most amazing day and all our guests had a fantastic time, I cannot tell you how many compliments were given on the food and the service. We both would really love to live the whole day over again lol. Thank you to you especially for being so helpful and reassuring, you really did make the whole process easier for me. Many thanks Mr and Mrs Barrie

My husband and I looked around at so many venues for our wedding. We had 130 guests and some of them had a long way to travel so they needed to stay over. We decided on the Best Western Connaught as the manager, Paul was absolutely brilliant and made sure we were happy with everything in advance. We met the chef and had a full tour. On the day we couldn't believe how brilliant the staff were. We didn't even need to ask for anything as they just seemed to know what was needed and did it immediately. Our wedding ceremony was watched by all 130 guests in the most wonderful surroundings of the wedding hall with lovely chandeliers and perfectly decorated chairs. We all then went outside in their beautiful courtyard, which was the perfect backdrop to all our photos. During that photo shoot they had re-arranged the room and set it out for 130 guests to sit and eat. The food was just fantastic and amazingly fresh! They provided huge amounts of food so no one went without, which we thought was very important as it was everyones main meal. Our honeymoon suite was fantastic and had everything you could possible need and was very spacious. So many of our guests commented on how wonderful the venue and staff had been. The prices were so brilliant as many other hotels that we looked at were nothing in comparison and still wanted a fortune. The Connaughts prices were all set out in advance and there were no surprises as what we budgeted for was exactly what we paid. If you would like the most memorable and fantastic wedding day and evening then I can guarantee you that the Connaught is the place to hold it.
