Our wedding day was perfect!

Our wedding day was just amazing! We've had loads of guests saying its the best wedding they've ever been to, that kind of says it all.
We were over the moon with everything, Beth and Angela are absolute stars, the staff were amazing, the food was amazing, the whole day was perfect. We can't thank you enough, we want to do it all again!
From booking our wedding through to the big day itself was a stress free experience, even when we made a couple of alterations to proceedings along the way, Angela & Beth were more than accomodating.
Thank you again, you really helped making our special day such an epic event.
Highly recommend Holiday Inn Runcorn.

Our Perfect Wedding Day ❤️

From the day we booked our wedding with the Holiday Inn, Runcorn, everything was handled professionally and with world class customer service.

On the day, we felt everything ran so smoothly and we really appreciated the care and attention we received from every member of staff in the whole hotel.

The organisation of our day was impeccable.

Thank you so much to Angela and the whole team for making us feel so special and for taking care of the whole day. Excellent service, immaculate rooms, fabulous food, perfect function rooms - what a day to remember! x

My husband and I would just like to formally thank everyone at the Holiday Inn, Runcorn.

Karen, your service from us visiting for the first time, to our wedding was second to non. The planning meetings and making sure everyone knew what we wanted. The staff couldn't do enough for us, on our day. If I could give you all 10 we would!
A special mention also to Pete on the day and Sam in the function bar! ?????
Thank you once again for supporting us on our special day.

My daughter got married at the holiday inn in July this year , I cannot praise Andrea and her staff enough. They all bent over backwards to make the day special the food was delicious , my daughter had made the table decorations herself and the staff had dressed the tables just how she wanted them . The staff were attentive friendly and cheerfull and shared our enjoyment of the day.
Thank you all so much.

Massive Thankyou!

Hi Karol

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your team for the fantastic job you did for our wedding reception, myself, Chris and all our guests had an amazing time. Big thanks to Jason and David, there was an issue with the sweet cart as the lady never arrived but they created a wonderful display with the addition sweets that we brought so no one knew.

Once again thanks from us both for making our day just perfect!!!

Perfect place for a Hotel Wedding July 2013

So my husband & I got married here on the 27th of July. The day was absolutely perfect. The staff here went above & beyond to make our day special.
Me and the bridesmaids stayed the night before and the staff even moved my things up to the executive suite were me & my husband were staying.
For the price we paid for the wedding at the this venue it truly was worth every penny!
Only one thing that I will say is the bar is pretty pricey, but with me being the bride I never bought one drink! Lucky me!
If you're thinking of having your wedding held here then you have made the right choice, and if you get Audrey & Sally looking after you & the wedding you're in great hands!
Thank you Holiday Inn.

Our Wedding Day 6th July 2013 Part 2 of 2

... The ceremony was perfect and the room dressed beautifully (thank you Richard) Audrey was on hand for the big day to offer her full support she coordination the day to day running, friends and family. Audrey was very calm and assertive (thank you Audrey fantastic leadership skills). The meal was lovely, being a vegetarian I had the choice of choosing my own meal and it was delicious. Sally managed to attend our wedding ceremony even though it was her day off, this truly shows her commitment to her job and the professional relationship she builds with customers'. Sally went above and beyond the call of duty, it was so very kind of her and made our day feel more special. We can't thank you enough Sally for everything you did for us, considering you only had 12 weeks to put everything together it was absolutely magnificent. You are a credit/asset to the Holiday Inn and we both valued your knowledge, expertise and hard work. Each visit we had you made us so very welcome and I would recommend you Sally to every new bride and/or groom they would not be disappointed. I didn't manage to note all staff names but if you helped or contributed to the day in any way thank you. Top Marks Holiday Inn but that's thanks to Sally xx
