Magical Wedding
Venue Service

By Jayne and Les Bater, on 16 May 2016

We cannot thank you enough for our magical wedding on the 11.3.16, you are all a credit to the Bay Tree, everything was absolutely perfect.

Wouldnt change a thing!
Venue Service

By Ellie & Jools, on 08 Sep 2015

Where do we begin? From the moment we first stepped inside the Bay Tree Hotel we knew that it was the perfect place to celebrate our wedding. The fires were alight, the rooms were cosy and the staff were very friendly. We were sure that if the weather was awful on the day it would not have mattered one bit. Maureen’s help with planning was invaluable and we couldn’t have planned everything so well without her guidance. Peter and the staff involved in setting up the rooms on the day did a marvellous job interpreting our ideas, wishes and plans perfectly. The dining room looked particularly stunning and lots of our guests commented on it. There were quite a few photos taken! When it came to the actual day nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were professional and friendly. We were utterly spoiled all day and waited for nothing. The duty managers, Mark and Luke made sure that the timetable for the day ran smoothly and that our guests were in the right place at the right time for photographs, speeches and dinner. The food was delicious and we received lots of favourable comments from our guests. Please pass on our thanks to the chef and the kitchen staff. We definitely picked the perfect venue for our perfect day and we will always keep many lovely memories of a very special time and place. We wish we could do it all over again, we wouldn’t change a thing!
