Amazing place to get married!!!!

Absolutely fantastic! I loved every second of my magical wedding! All thanks to the amazing wedding planners Helen and lee! They are the best! Made me feel so at easy nothing was too much trouble! The room the ceremony was in was so gorgeous. We had 3 rooms. 1 for the ceremony which was linked to the room we had for our wedding breakfast. It had its own private garden which was fab for taking photos!! The food was fantastic, I have a few fussy people in my family but the managed to cater to everyone!! They were so laid back and professional. They truly have everything in full swing!!!! I can't tell you how beautiful everything was!! And for the evening we had the most amazing large room! Enough for all my guests, the dj, a large dance floor, a fair few tables and a private bar. Honestly I couldn't fault a thing!!! I stayed in the hotel the night before and the night of the wedding. The beds are super large and comfortable. The rooms are large and immaculate!!! I can't name one fault!!!!! The breakfast both mornings were gorgeous!!! A large variety so something for everyone. My bridesmaid went swimming and said it was super clean and lovely in the pool. I hope you are all so proud of these amazing branch!!!! Can't wait to come again!! The staff went above and beyond they managed to wrap presents for my mother in law. I can't thank Helen, Lee and Paul and the rest of the staff enough! Thank you for making the most important day of my life so memorable. To anyone looking to get married or even just a stay I would recommend! The staff are just so fantastic!!! A beautiful hotel.
