Fantastic Day
Venue Service

By Nicole Obbard, on 06 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Sep 2018

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
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Snell, on 09 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 05 Aug 2018

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

Just wanted to say as huge thank you
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Cahill, on 11 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Jul 2018

Just wanted to say as huge thank you for all your help with the planning of the wedding. The day went perfect and the team effort working alongside Paul from Beejay Entertainments just showed how well and connected the whole day was. We were so glad we had Paul from start to finish it just lifted that extra stress and just showed how well you all work together. The room was incredible, (creative venue done an amazing job) and thank you for accommodating the last minute changes and also for your ideas that you put forward. We had the most amazing day, accompanied by the best of weather and a great team at the Mercure Great Danes! We look forward to returning next year and reminiscing about it all. Please pass on our thank you’s to the team that served, bar staff and the chef who made delicious food for our wedding breakfast and buffet. I wish I could relive it all again!

Wedding in gazebo
Venue Service

By Sweetdim, on 19 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 10 Jun 2018

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.

The most incredible day
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs West, on 05 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Jun 2018

My husband and I got married at your hotel on Friday and we wanted to send an email to thank the staff who worked in the restaurant on Thursday night and the staff who worked our wedding, in particular, Stuart. We had the most incredible day and this was mostly due to the excellent organisation, communication and atmosphere that Stuart helped to create. He could not have done more for us and honestly made us feel so comfortable. Kelly helped to organise the drinks bottles deal that a large number of our guests bought at the bar. This was helpful with such a large party and was a great success. Please send our thanks to your staff, in particular to Stuart, as they made our day run smoothly.

An Amazing Day!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Gurr, on 30 May 2018Date of Wedding - 26 May 2018

I just wanted to thank you and everyone at the hotel for an amazing wedding! We had a wonderful day and we were thoroughly looked after. Stuart was amazing! He made sure everything was covered and sorted and answered any questions we might have had during the day. He also helped calm my nerves before the ceremony. Everyone said how amazing the wedding was and how lovely the hotel is. Thank you so much.
