I attended a friend's wedding recception of 16 April 2016. The food offering was of an afternoon tea. if you are gluten intolerant then this can be a nightmare and so I contacted the hotel before the day. I was connected to the Head Chef who asked me what I would like instead and he would prepare it. i said that I would like something that looked as much like the afternoon tea that the other guests were having as possible. i was so pleased with the goodies that were presented to me at the table and also found that a plate was prepared for me during the evening as well. First class service that I would recommend to anyone. Well done Holiday inn OrwellSent on 17/05/2016
Fantastic value for money wedding
The first time we met Tracey, we knew our wedding would be a success. We had our entire wedding here in March. The whole package was very reasonably priced and didn't disappoint us. The build up to the wedding was as smooth as silk, Tracey made everything easy. The whole day went very well. A few hiccups here and there but nothing that isn't common on every wedding day. There was more than enough food for everyone and it tasted great. We have nothing but great memories and we have the staff at Holiday Inn to thank for so much of them. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to have a great value for money wedding that won't disappoint.Sent on 17/05/2016
Our Wedding Day!
We had our wedding on the 30th April and cannot express how happy we were with the whole day. Charlotte and Laura were amazing and the Duty Managers, Stuart and Wayne could not have been more helpful. Everything ran like clockwork, the whole venue was beautifully presented, the food was amazing and we did not have to worry about anything.Sent on 17/05/2016
