Exceptional Service
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Neil Kimberley, on 19 Jan 2009

My husband and I met and married in 33 days. With very little time to plan such an event 15 days from our engagement to our wedding on April Fool''s Day we turned to The Devonshire Arms at Bolton Abbey. The events team were superb and the actual day was run like clockwork. Unfortunately the unscheduled dense fog meant that the Gazelle Helicopter that the events team had put us in touch with was unable to fly us home but the team at the hotel made sure we weren''t without special transport and within an hour and a half a fabulous vintage Jaguar rolled into the car park to whisk us off home. Ours was a very small, intimate wedding with only 8 guests and The Devonshire made our day perfect. We have now been married for four years and each year we return to The Devonshire for our wedding anniversary.

"Everything went exactly according to plan"
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Clarke, on 08 May 2007

On behalf of my wife and myself could I just express our many thanks to you and all your colleagues for the arrangements for the Wedding Reception last Saturday. Everything went exactly according to plan and everybody seemed to enjoy themselves very much. We would like this made known to the staff concerned and would like to participate to pass on our thanks to Adam for his running of the evening. It was very much appreciated.
