Lakeside April Wedding
Dear VeritySent on 13/04/2017
I just wanted to drop you a line and ask you to pass on my thanks to every member of staff
Front of house (Reception) - For allowing us to check in early, you have no idea how much I needed my room! If I had to spend another hours with my step son I would have gone in to melt down. They were amazing, friendly and professional.
Valet Service - The gentleman who took my luggage up to our room and hung it in the wardrobe, it may seem small to you and him but it was one less thing for me to worry about.
Restaurant Staff (Manager and Waiting staff) – Nothing was too much trouble, all bright and cheerful and made me feel so relaxed.
Staff that set up the Oak Room – Wow what can I say, I had a picture in my head of how I wanted it to look. You and the team nailed it.
Kitchen Staff - The food was absolutely amazing, I have had no end of compliments about the menu and food.
House Keeping – Our room was kept to a beautiful standard, please say thank you too them, they work hard and have one of the harder jobs of a hotel, I just want them to know all the little things were noticed and I thank them for it the weather card, lamps being turned on, water by the bed, beds being turned down etc.
Last but not least you, I have to thank you for all your hard work in pulling off a calm, relaxed wedding. You dealt with the last min changes extremely well and with a smile, it would not have been the day it was without you working away behind the scene!

Good afternoon VeritySent on 17/02/2017
Just to say a big thank you for making our ceremony day at the hotel so special. It really was great to have everything organised for us and that everything went so smoothly so that we could relax and enjoy ourselves.
Could you please pass on our thanks once again to Katy also for taking the time to help.
In fact our whole few days were very special and we will long remember them. The hotel is fabulous and the everyone involved in our stay could not have been more welcoming, friendly and efficient – nothing seemed to be any trouble and the service was second to none. We will certainly be back!

My Wife and I held our daughters wedding and stayed at the Lakeside Hotel on 03rd December this year and we can not speak highly enough of the Hotel.Sent on 21/12/2016
The wedding was held in the Windermere suite which is a converted pub just across the road from the main hotel. This is an excellent building with its own self contained bar and kitchen. Spotlessly clean and a nice area to hold a wedding reception in.
My Daughter was married in the Oak room in the main building of the hotel. It only holds 40 and is a little cosy but a very nice area to hold the ceremony in.
Where the Hotel really came in to its own was in the service. From our first meeting through to the day itself we were treated courteously and professionally. The credit for this must go to the hotel's events manager Verity Stephenson who was superb and one feels that a mid event earthquake would be just a minor irritation for her.
This the first and only time I will be the Father of the bride and so we wanted to make it special. There are oodles of pretty Hotels to choose from but if you think you have a choice you haven't. This Hotel is 11 out of 10 and the staff the same. Coming from urban Essex the location is simply stunning with Lake Windermere literally lapping up to the conservatory at the front of the Hotel. Looking in to the distance to see snow topped mountains is idyllic.
This hotel is gorgeous both as a wedding venue and a place to stay. Our only disappointment was having to leave and return to views of the Thames estuary.
