Venue Service

By Tasha and Sam, on 06 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Jun 2019

Abbey was our wedding coordinator and was outstanding and going above and beyond what was expected. Helping us when we had some awkward requests from relatives and generally being an absolute god send. Drew ran our day and really was a credit to you guys and he managed to get everything set up and running so smoothly. And just like Abbey he was brilliant whenever we wanted anything. The guests all absolutely loved the venue and the evening and we kept getting told how beautiful and relaxed it all was. You guys made the day and we can't thank you enough.

Blessed with help and support
Venue Service

By Stephen and Jane Welch, on 29 May 2019Date of Wedding - 25 May 2019

Wow! We had such a fantastic day and our guests loved it. We were helped with lovely weather on the day too. We can’t thank Isabelle and Drew enough for everything you have both done for us both leading up to the wedding and on the day itself. I always knew what a wonderful venue Dunston Hall was. Stephen has never been before, I know he now shares my view that we chose the best place to get married and I would always recommend it. The hotel is clean, well maintained, good facilities and extremely helpful staff. I couldn’t fault our day and the enormous help and support we received has made us feel blessed. We can’t wait to come back in a year for our anniversary.

Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Boyle, on 13 May 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Apr 2019

The whole weekend was perfect. All the staff were fantastic from the porter who helped me with the epic amount of stuff - even when his trolley had gone awry. To Drew on the day who was great. He did a wonderful job and I trusted him completely. The service was just fantastic both on the day and the following days after. The bar staff and the dining staff are incredible. Marcus behind the bar on the day of the wedding kept James and I well hydrated (he even made one of the children a non alcoholic mocktail so he would fit in) and his banter was wonderful on a day where there was so much going on. The housekeepers were great. Apparently they tidied up 206 during the wedding breakfast after the chaos of the morning. We had a fantastic day. James and I didnt hear one complaint and still haven't. Even the people we thought who would create a fuss loved it. Thank you for all of your help Abbey in making our day truly special. I look forwards to coming back next year for our anniversary ??
