    Absolutely perfect location for our wedding!

    My husband(woohoo) and I had the most perfect day. The staff were delightful and so helpful. They really made the whole thing seamless. I would recommend Forbes to anyone whether it’s for a short stay or a wedding. Even just a meal! Absolutely fantastic, so many of our guests said it had been the best wedding they had been to.
