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.Sent on 06/09/2019
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’m sure that it wasn’t 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.
