Very good hotel

Staff are very professional and made feel very relaxed throughout the day with no worries. Everything went very smoothly because of the staff. Breakfast the next morning was very nice and the wedding suite was beautiful although the shower needs replacing or fixing as it changed temperature all the time and switch itself off mid shower. I would especially like to thank the wedding coordinator Danny and macayla Robertson.

Our Wedding

We had our wedding reception and stayed in the bridal suite. After a few ups and downs, everything was perfect. The food for the reception was amazing. We had hog roast and buffet, the entertainment staff was very good and decorated the room brilliantly. The whole reception went amazingly. Paul the concierge was fantastic and very helpful. The bridal suite was lovely and very clean , as was the other rooms. Would like to say a big thank you to Kathryn Jones and all the staff at the hotel for helping make our day so perfect.
