On behalf of myself and my husband, Lynda & Mike Misselbrook (the Groom's parents) and of course Cat & Andrew Misselbrook- our newlyweds, I would like to thank the Best Western Red Lion Hotel for providing outstanding service at Cat & Andrew's Wedding Reception on 15th August 2018.Sent on 24/09/2018
The whole event was executed perfectly, and we know that this is down to one thing - you and your teams.
In particular, we would like to thank a number of members of staff who provided exceptional service: Dawn Brand- your Reception Manager, the lady who was the Manager of table service at the Wedding Reception (and much more!)- who has long blond hair and glasses and we believe may be called Fanika? Your head chef (who's name we do not know, but who's food was beautiful!!) and of course both of you, for leading the team and providing what we can only describe as brilliant customer service from the point at which we first visited the hotel last year, to the point at which the very last guest left.
It has been a wonderful occasion and once which we will never forget and we thank you most sincerely for playing a key role in making it so.
With warmest regards
Jenny & John Steer
