    Winter Wedding

    We wanted to say a Massive Thank You for giving us the Best Wedding Day we could have ever asked for.

    From start to finish your services were professional, genuine and truly outstanding. Wedding planning to menu tasting and onto the big day where all our guests felt extremely cared for, nothing was ever too much. Your staff were efficient and friendly and the food was just divine. All in all, everything was just stunning.

    Your expertise and passion is something to be admired and we cannot thank you Katie, Tomek (head waiter), Bob (Toast master) and all your staff enough. You are all a real asset to the Balmoral.

    We cannot recommend the Balmoral highly enough.

    Warm regards,

    Isla & Alan Beattie-Wharton

    A truly unforgettable day...

    Morning Claire

    Just a quick note to say thanks very much for all your organisation on Saturday, and in the build up to it.

    We had a truly unforgettable day, which was in no small part down to yourself, Morris and the rest of the staff at the hotel. We cannot talk highly enough about you all.

    We have had so may people passing comment on the hotel and the staff as well, so thanks for all your efforts

    Best wishes

    Lynne and Steven

    A memorable event...

    Dear Kieron,

    We really have to thank you, Claire and all your colleagues for making our wedding such a memorable event. You really did take care of everything, and we and all our guests were made to feel very well looked after. The ceremony went well and the dinner and drinks were really amazing it couldn't have been better. All the attention to detail and the excellent service made all the difference for such a special event.

    We'll definitely be staying at the balmoral again some time in the future,
    perhaps for an anniversary, who knows...

    Many thanks again and best regards
