Old Thorns really made our wedding day
Venue Service

By Natasha & Paul Stride 14 March 2014, on 16 May 2014

I just wanted to send a mail to say a really big thankyou to all the staff at Old Thorns that were involved in our wedding in one way or another, both the planning and the actual day I really cannot fault a thing from our initial visit to look at the venue to checking out the day after our wedding. The food was amazing, (Wedding breakfast, buffet and breakfast!) all of the staff (Bar & Waiting staff) were friendly and professional. The whole day was planned to military precision…..all I had to worry about was being ready at 1.45! A special thanks to Justina who looked after me, my family and my guests impeccably and oversaw everything on the day. Old Thorns really made our wedding day perfect and special……so much so…….that we wouldn’t have changed a thing! Please could you pass this on for me! Best wishes

Old Thorns... What can I say?!! Utter perfection from start to finish. We got married on Saturday 8th March 2014. after months of choosing a wedding venue, Old thorns turned into everything we could ever wish! A massive thank you to lovely Tiffany, my wedding planner from day 1. Nothing was too much for you, not matter what silly question I asked. Stuart and Diane on the day.. Stuart your patience and utter calm attitude throughout the day blew us away! Diane, your stern and straight to the point organisation had everyone running to your call! What a team! Every single one of our guests were amaze by the day! Old Thorns is a great venue, beautiful location and stunning spa but the staff really made it for us, if your thinking or hesitating about choosing Old thorns as a venue or stay, then don't! You will not be disappointed. The food on the day was amazing and it's not easy to cater for 80 guests in 1 sitting. The quality of service was above and beyond. Andrew and I would like to thank everyone for their upmost effort and dedication to our day! Stuart... You really are at the top of your game. I hope Old thorns know the gem that they have in you! The spa is amazing and we will be returning here time and time again. Request rooms in the new rooms as they are lovely and modern. The grand ballroom for a wedding.... Perfect!! Old thorns, thank you! See you again soon

A very big thank you

Thank you so much we got married on the 31st Aug 2013 and thought the service from your staff from was amazing. Shauna went above and beyond for us. Everything was amazing even the lovely lad who took us up in the buggy to have our pictures done was really helpful. Had my makeup done with the spa who came to my room and were fantastic. Even reception were helpful. Everything was well thought through and had a high standard without being pretentious. We got complements from our guests who said things like, they thought we had the perfect wedding and its the best wedding they've been too from start to finish. So just wanted to say a massive thank you we cant rave about you enough.

I would just like to say a big thank you to the whole team from the arrangements in the run up to the wedding, to the final day itself, especially Sally Ann, Tiffany and of course Stuart who was absolutely fantastic and made the day even more special. We have had nothing but great and positive comments about the staff, the rooms and how beautiful the venue was!

Thank You to Old Thorns
Venue Service

By Simon & Charlotte, on 18 Jun 2012

Just got back off honeymoon and thought I would send you a quick message. Just really wanted to say thank you to Old Thorns for our wedding day. You made everything so easy on the run up before it and Greg was amazing on the day. He really kept us calm in the morning and ironed out any issues we had throughout the day. Every time I turned round he was near by checking everything was ok and if we needed a drink or anything, absolutely fantastic! All of our guests have commented on how good the day and the venue were and said it was well worth travelling to. I would love to say that we will definitely use you again but fingers crossed we will not be getting married again. We will however be visiting the hotel if we ever need to stay up that way. Thanks again for all your help and say hello to Greg for us.

Out and Out Success
Venue Service

By James and Karen, on 18 Jun 2012

Amazing Venue. Highly Professional
Venue Service

By Naomi Turnbull, on 17 Jul 2011

It's the day after our wedding and we have to write what an utterly fantastic time we had. Mainly down to the professionalism of the staff and in particular Stewart who was outstanding. We have visited frequently over the months to watch the changes to this hotel unfold. At times there was trepidation but we need not have worried, this place just keeps getting better! The staff have been absolutely wonderful and have made us feel so welcome. I cannot speak highly enough about them all. The food was fantastic (compliments to the chef, who sat down with us personally to help us chose the menu a few months prior) and everyone commented on the quality and amount of food provided. For our photos we were taken out of a golf buggy to view the most amazing scenery. All-in-all an incredibly professional and well organised day from start to finish. I just want to say thank you to a few people in particular; Diane - for looking after me both mornings, the big hugs and being as cool as a cucumber. Donna - for everything leading up to the day. Nothing was too much trouble and she had so many great ideas. James - for the wine tasting and the chatter. Ashley - for running such a great venue and taking the time to talk to us every time we visited! And finally - last but not least - Stewart who was absolutely brilliant. I've never been so well looked after in my life - I felt like a princess and he was an absolute superstar. We cannot thank him enough for ensuring everything went so smoothly. We had a fabulous day and we are now sad now not to be going back!

Fantastic Venue...
