Thank you

We both just wanted to say thank you for all your help with the organisation of our wedding on the 5th October this year. It was truly a brilliant day and everyone enjoyed themselves.

I would also like you to thank Oliver and the rest of the staff who helped on the day, they were an excellent team.

Thank your for the outstanding service

Now the dust has settled I felt that I should drop you a line to thank your for the outstanding service I received both whilst planning and during our daughters wedding on Saturday.

In particular I would like to thank Kelly Burt, without whom I would never have been able to pull off such a special event. From our first meeting she was both friendly and professional and I felt I had found just the right person to help me with the planning. Nothing was too much trouble for her and I felt she went above and beyond what was actually expected of her. She was always happy to answer any queries I may have had no matter how small and had a genuine way of making me feel like a friend and not only a client.

I would also like to thank Pravin who was also more than helpful on each occasion I had the pleasure of meeting him and Ollie who also helped prepare for us.

I would also like to thank the entire team of staff that worked on the day that helped make the day run smoothly. I鈥檓 sure that it wasn鈥檛 easy to feed 240ish guests and get everything out hot and on time but from what I have been told this seems to be exactly what happened.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Kelly and your hotel to anyone and hope that we have occasion to stay and use your facilities again in the future.

A massive thank you to everyone at the Great Danes

We just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone at the great danes who worked so hard to make our day as amazing as it was. We had a lovely day despite the weather. Exactly what we wanted laid back, friendly and intimate.

Oliver and his team were great. A special thank you to the man whose name I didn't get apologies tall with black hair. The bar staff were so friendly. The food was amazing despite being buffet was all so good and moist. I don't know how they kept the corn on the cob so juicy. So a massive thank you and well doen to the kitchen staff. Everyone has told us they had a lovely day despite the wind and hail.

And a special thank you to you for putting up with us and all your time organising our day. It was perfect and everything ran so smoothly.

Wedding in gazebo

We had a hindu ceremony there and it was amazing. Claire and her team were outstanding in organising everything for us.

Lovely gazebo. Nice staff. Dinner was brilliant.

Price was reasonable compared to what another hotel nearby was quoting us.

Pravin looked after us during our stay and we could not have asked for more.

There was a peacock in the hotel yard and we got some stunning photos.

Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Fantastic Day

We had our whole wedding weekend here from 7th - 9th Sept. On behalf of myself, my new husband and I believe the rest of my wedding party and guests, we could not fault anything. From Friday night dinner to Sunday breakfast... The food was lovely, all our guests commented.. Well done chefs. The staff were very friendly and helpful, anything we asked for was done and the rooms were clean and beds comfy.
We had a few issues after we first booked our wedding but with special thanks to Kelly and Stuart these were all rectified.
Stuart was a complete star all day! and Charlie was a true help and gent til the very end. Our day was perfect and every thing a wedding should be from start to finish. We will certainly be looking forward to our first anniversary here!
Big Thanks to all the staff involved in our wedding.

The venue was amazing

We just had our wedding here on Sunday and what can I say. The venue was amazing. The staff were all friendly and supportive, one of the most helpful hotels we have ever stayed in. I am sure me and family will stay here again over the next year even just for a night to use pool and outdoors
