Super helpful

The were very helpful from day 1, when we were only enquiring, once we decided to go ahead to have the wedding there, they couldn't be more attentive, made sure we had everything, even recommend various companies from cakes to flowers.
Whilst booking the rooms, they showed us which function rooms were available, even shown us the hotel rooms, so we know the appropriate rooms for our guests.
On the day of the wedding, everything went according to plan, our wedding planner Kate Sullivan had done more than expected. The manager Mark Ilsley was the same, made sure everything went accordingly.
By the morning, everybody from the hotel congratulated us, including the housekeepers. We couldn't have asked for a better and memorable wedding day.

Razaq wedding

From start to finish they listened and catered our wedding to meet our specific wants and needs. The staff are considerate and professional and reassured me and they had me trusting them from day one. The venue is stunning and was dressed to meet my vision. I had the most amazing day and felt fully looked after. The food, venue and staff were all amazing and everything was kept on time and the day ran perfectly. A completely stress free and fun wedding day thanks to the staff looking after us. I would highly recommend.
