    When it came to the day it all went without a hitc

    Amanda, the Assistant General manager, was there right through from the first meeting to the wedding day.
    The whole process was handled very professional and Amanda made us feel at ease at every stage.
    When it came to the day it all went without a hitch. The food for both the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet was very good.

    The staff could not have done more

    The staff could not have done more, Amanda the wedding coordinator was amazing, we had a wedding package from the hotel which was great value and flexible and the DJ organised by the hotel was great.
    I literally could not fault the staff or the venue, the food was amazing along with the wine and all our guests said what an amazing day it was.

    Our magical Wedding Day

    On Weds 31st July we had our magical Wedding Day at Stifford Hall Hotel. Where do we start though with thanking Amanda & the Team for their hospitality & the work they do to ensure that your Wedding is a day to remember.
    From start to finish Amanda was with us & any questions or concerns we had she answered & dealt with.
    Being in a wheelchair as the bride I wanted a venue that would be easily accessible & not cause issues on the day. We found that straight away here & we are so happy we chose to have our Wedding here.

    Thank you!

    I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Jamie & Amanda and the rest of the team for everything that you did for us for our wedding. On the day you guys went above and beyond for us and I will be forever greatful. From the rooms the night before to the breakfast the morning after everything went perfect and it was generally down to you guys. The whole weekend went so fast and I’m actually sad that it’s all over and I don’t have a excuse to keep on coming back, but for my next events party I no where il be heading! All my guests commented how amazing everything was and how lovely Amanda and the team are, the celiac lady said that it was the best service she has ever received (being celiac and all that she usually has a nightmare when eating out) but nothing was to much trouble. The DJ was absolutely brilliant too he did everything that I asked so glad we went with him. Thank you so much once again and thank you for our wedding card it was so lovely and thoughtful I have left you guys a review on tripadvisor and I hope to see you all again very soon.

    Above and Beyond!

    This hotel went above and beyond for my wedding that took place on 24/03/18. Jamie, Amanda and their team were amazing throughout the whole planning process. The day ran so smoothly and everything was taken care off, I didn’t have to worry as they were always there if I needed them. I don’t have one bad thing to say about this hotel the rooms were clean and lovely the breakfast was really good both mornings, the wedding breakfast and evening buffet was amazing all my guests commented how much they enjoyed it, the staff are really friendly and helpful nothing was ever to much trouble, on the night of the wedding the staff had cleaned up my room and decorated our bed with rose petals and other bits and pieces and left me a wedding card in my postbox from the whole team which I thought was a really lovely gesture! I am generally sad that my wedding is over because I don’t have a excuse to keep coming back! Although I did book 2 afternoon tea’s there for our grandparents to come back at a later date! Thank you once again I will be forever grateful for making my wedding really special!

    Huge thank you to Park Inn Radisson for helping make my Wedding Day reception on the 22/04/17 go so lovely. They helped set up the room the way I asked and ensured the day run smoothly. The food was lovely and the DJ was excellent. My wedding planner at the Park Inn was Jamie. She was excellent and so understanding.

    Our Day was Perfect

    To start off with the wedding coordinator was amazing and was always happy to have us in to go over details, she was amazing thank you Kelly.
    The grounds were beautiful and we were lucky to have brilliant weather which made it even better. All the staff pulled in to help the wedding were amazing and efficient, always quick to help with requests.

    Food and drink served was perfect we had a few dietary requirements (vegan, vegetarian and allergies) and the chef was amazing in organising a meal for them. Drinks flowed and we had a bar area for our function which made it great.

    Overall I would use them again for a party, and recommend them to people looking for a good price and great service.

    Thank you everyone at Park Inn
