Thank you so much!

It was absolutely wonderful. Mani and all of the staff, were amazing in the lead up and on our big day. It wouldn't have gone so perfectly without all of them. Special thanks to Mark, our master of ceremonies, who was a delight.

Perfect day

Joe and all of the of the staff were amazing and everything ran like clockwork. Carl and the kitchen staff prepared the food to an extremely high standard, every dish was just like the taster session. All of our guests enjoyed the food, as did the children. The whole day was just perfect.

Izabela was extremely helpful in arranging our wedding day and everything we asked was done. We would definitely most highly reccomend the hotel to anyone. They could not have been more helpful.

Absolutely loved our wedding!

We had our wedding here on Saturday. Lovely service. Fantastic rooms and the small touches for us as the bride and groom were very thoughtful. The wedding itself was lovely. The food was amazing. Mark who helped us throughout the day deserves recognition for his service. He was always there helping us making sure everything was OK. Before the wedding he was checking everything was correct and that we were happy. Very lovely man. Aswell as Joe who again was always on hand checking everything for us. The new revamp on the rooms lounge and restaurant was excellent, thanks for helping make our day so lovely.

Amazing day

We had an amazing day, the food was one of the best buffets I have ever had (I've seen hundreds) and the rosul was excellent. The staff who looked after us were fantastic a real credit to the hotel. I can speak for everyone when we say that everyone had a fantastic stay.

I really appreciate the hard work put in, especially dressing the room, it looked beautiful.

Perfect and seamless

Our events coordinator Isabella handled our booking and was efficient and professional throughout.
The room was beautifully decorated in the style we had requested and looked lovely. The staff were attentive and efficient.
We had soup served to the table followed by a set buffet main and dessert. The food was very tasty and plentiful with many of us going back for seconds. They staff even organised chicken nuggets and chips for the children when they noticed that they were not keen on the main.
Bacon rolls later in the evening were gratefully received by our guests and again there was plenty.
The whole event was perfect and seamless, I would recommend this hotel for any event without question.
