My (now) husband and I had our wedding reception here, and we had the best time. Everything went pretty much perfectly, and to plan. Our wedding coordinator was amazing, and she ensured we had everything we needed for our big day, that food was labeled for our guests allergies, and made the whole planning process easy. She also helped me with my belongings in my room, as I had sadly broken my leg weeks before the big day. Would definitely recommend :).Sent on 23/10/2019

An Amazing Day!
We had an amazing day! The hotel is set in the perfect location for a relaxing wedding with all facilities on site catering for all age groups. The staff are very professional and friendly, helping to make the occasion so very special. Feedback from our guests was very positive. Our wedding co-ordinators Phillipa and Lorna were so good, ensuring every little detail was attended to always with a cheerful smile and nothing was too much trouble. Ted the Toastmaster, who came as part of the wedding package, was excellent, in fact outstanding. The food throughout the day was superb and exceeded our expectation. We would have given a 5* rating but despite highlighting special dietary requirements, one of our guests was given the incorrect dish. Overall our wedding day at Five Lakes Resort was everything we had hoped and planned for and more. It was just beautiful.Sent on 08/10/2019

Wedding of the year!!!
Me and my now to be called wife held our wedding here, August 10 2019, and what a great wedding we had. Not only is the hotel a fantastic place to stay but they really took it up a level to provide first rate service for us. From allowing us to set up the day before took all the stress from the actual day away to allowing us to have all our needs catered for. Our wedding coordinator, Phillipa, was an absolute pleasure to work with!!! she looked after us from start to finish and she is an absolute credit to the hotel! Her perfectionist attitude and eye for detail made the day run care free and smooth! Also to mention is the c&b manager Peter who is also a huge credit to five lakes. He made the day,evening and morning after run like clockwork!!! All in all me and the wife couldn't have asked for a better day and if we could do it all over again we would in a heartbeat!Sent on 23/10/2019
