Venue Service

By Mark & Lorraine, on 01 Aug 2012

We took over the hotel for the Friday and Saturday evenings and we simply had the most amazing time. As ever, it's all about the planning and our lovely wedding organizer, Laura, made sure everything was absolutely perfect. No detail was left to chance and Laura dealt with every last minute change with grace and humour. Saturday was 'our big day' and it certainly lived up to the hype. Every single teeny detail was simply perfect. The staff deftly re-arranged the room from 'wedding room' back to restaurant without a hitch. Our gorgeous flowers arrived, the beautiful cake, the string quartet - all without any fuss and indeed without me having any clue that it was going on in the background. The champagne reception and the wedding breakfast were simply fabulous. Great food, copious amounts on bubbly and never a dry glass in the house. All of the above is simply to illustrate how amazing the attention to detail was at Cowley but the real thank you goes out to the staff. They were quite simply outstanding. They made every single guest feel comfortable and at home.

Our Amazing wedding day!

I have just returned home after attending my daughter Loraines wedding to Mark at Cowley Manor, and before I do anything else I want to thank ALL the staff who did such an amazing job looking after us all with efficiency and good humour. It cant be easy attending to the needs of so many people, but you did it it without a single hitch! Thank you all so much. You can throw as much money as you like at a wedding but without all of your help it would be a flop. You all helped to make it a day to remember! And I have to make a personal thanks to Jim. Jim, I dont know what drinks you were serving me, but by the time I got up to make that speech I felt I could have addressed the nation!!!!! I know that Loraine intends to give the hotel a glowing review on Trip Advisor but I wanted to do this personal thanks to all of you.

We cannot portray in words how appreciative we are
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Stabbins, on 26 Jul 2012

I would just like to say that myself and Carolyn were truly taken aback by you specifically and the rest of Cowley Manor on the day of our wedding (Thursday 7th June). The attention to detail along with five star service, superb food were some of the things that stood out. It truly made our day the happiest of our lives. The day would not have been as special if it weren’t for the fact that you put your heart into the day and certainly strived to go beyond our expectations at every angle. This to say the least means we will be returning on many occasions to sample the beautiful food, five star service and luxury rooms. We cannot portray in words how appreciative we are, but thank you. We definitely look forward to seeing you in the near future.

A Huge Thanks!
