So if you are planning a wedding put Greenwoods on
Venue Service

By Mr Tully, on 18 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 06 Oct 2018

This is a gem of a place which deserves much wider recognition. Don't usually write reviews but felt compelled to break my code of silence for this experience. My daughter chose Greenwoods Hotel & Spa as her preferred choice of venue for her wedding reception. From the moment she and her entourage arrived at 7.30am on the day of the wedding the staff could not have been more helpful. The level of service and attention to detail were exceptional. Shannon, the hotel's wedding co-ordinator, was on hand throughout the day and evening giving re assurance, confidence and updates on timings and procedures which is what you need on days like these. Such a cool mature head on young shoulders! Food and silver service at the wedding breakfast were impressive and plenty of bar staff on hand throughout the evening so none of those unseemly 'scrums' ever developed at the bar for drinks; and the Garden Suite function room literally takes your breath away when decorated. Overnight accommodation did not disappoint and breakfast plentiful. So if you are planning a wedding put Greenwoods on your short list. You won't regret it.

By Mrs And Mrs Howett, on 18 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 05 Oct 2018

We recently got married at Greenwoods. From start to finish it was a perfect experience. The Library room was stunning, the reception room was beautiful. Nothing was ever too much trouble. All the staff on the day were happy, helpful and brilliant. The food received constant compliments - it was delicious!!!! As a very nervous bride I wouldn't have been without Shannen - our wedding coordinator. She was simply amazing - made me feel relaxed and really special - i just loved the care and attention. The whole day went without a hitch and Shannen and the team even delivered beautiful sunny weather! We are so so pleased we picked Greenwoods for our wedding. We cant wait to head back for a stay on our anniversary! Thank you everyone!! love, Michelle and Jon xxxx

By Paulina & Luke, on 25 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Aug 2018

We just had our wedding at Greenwood’s on Saturday 4th August, and must say we could honestly recommend this venue to everyone! The venue is not only breathtaking but the food is amazing! The rooms are so clean and beautiful and the stuff are extremely helpful, especially one little star CHARLOTTE! She was our coordinator. This lady is absolutely amazing! On many occasions went the extra mile for us to make sure all was running smoothly. Months leading up to the wedding she would organise everything she could and communicate with us without delay! I was not the easiest of Brides but not once she made me feel like I Am troubling her. An absolute wedding hero!! Thank you for letting us have the most magical day ever!

It was everything we dreamed of

unforgettable day
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs White, on 26 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Dec 2017

After our wedding on the 29th of December I feel that I should let charlotte and everyone else that took part in the organising of our wedding know what a superb job they made of the whole day. From the start to the finish it was absolutely superb. Charlotte was an absolute rock throughout the day and she guided us through every second so we'll. Although I can't remember his name I have to give massive credit to the bar manager as well. He went above and beyond his job. All the bar staff were so friendly and helpful and all the guests said that the food was excellent. Thank you all for making our special day such an unforgettable experience.

Thank you so much!

A Brilliant Day
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Gilham, on 26 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 26 Oct 2017

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team and everyone involved in planning and working at our wedding. We had a truly magical day and everything ran so perfectly and smoothly thanks to you all. So many of our family and friends commented on the lovely venue and the amazing food and how efficient, friendly and helpful you were. I know you would have worked so hard with all the planning and accessorising and that we didn’t make it easy for you by not making decisions in good time and not managing to provide an inventory list and some of the accessories on time etc. We really appreciate you keeping everything running to schedule and in a discreet way. You were always on hand to guide us but never interrupted us with our guests. Good luck for the future and please pass on our thanks to everyone involved, especially the chefs who prepared and cooked the amazing food. We have a few family members and friends that can be fussy or a little critical or have eaten in some expensive restaurants that were very impressed. The beef in particular was delicious. I would thoroughly recommend you Charlotte as a wedding coordinator and Greenwood’s as a stunning venue to be married at.

Huge Thank you!

By Mr & Mrs Amorelli, on 26 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Sep 2017

We just wanted to thank you so much for all of your help in the lead up and on our actual wedding day, we honestly could not of done it without you and we really needn't of worried so much prior to the day! You were amazing!! The room looked absolutely amazing, exactly how we imagined it, the day ran so perfectly it is only in the last few days that I have realised that I didn't even need to check anything with you (dj and band set up etc) it all just happened so smoothly, we can not thank you and everyone involved enough for making it happen! And for keeping us on time, I think it is the only Italian wedding we have ever been to that didn't over run!!! Exactly how I wanted it ?? all of our friends and family have said that it is the best wedding they have been to!! Thank you so so much.

Thank you so much

By Mr & Mrs Cook, on 26 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 06 Aug 2017

Just thought I'd drop you a quick email as people are only too quick to put pen to paper to complain but rarely to give credit for a job well done and this case it's the later! I found the service you gave to be outstanding! You kept us up to date throughout the whole day but was not intrusive. The day went so well and feel I need to commend you on the service provided. Thank you so much for all your hard work and rest assured I will recommend you to friends and family.

Thank you

By Mr Brown, on 26 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Aug 2017

Just wanted to thank you for all you did for us on Friday. It was a wonderful day,and so many of the guests commented on how much they enjoyed Caroline and Glen's special day. This was down in no small way to you and your staff. The venue and facilities were perfect, but your attention to detail, the planning, the organising, and the sheer professionalism of all involved really made for an exceptional event. The food and drink were first class. Our bedrooms were brilliant. We couldn't fault Greenwoods on anything. Thank you again, and keep up the brilliant work.
