We had our wedding with the Crown and it was fantastic. The staff and service were flawless, they were helpful and professional. They made our day run smoothly and helped with everything they could during the planning etc. Francesca and all the other staff who were there were friendly and happy, the high standard was fantastic. The food was incredible and I can not thank the crown hotel enough for making our wedding perfect for us!

It was an absolutely fantastic day. The Crown looked beautiful and has been finished to a very high standard. We were able to relax and enjoy the day which was organised so perfectly by all of the team, especially Robert and Francesca who looked after us so well. This was echoed by a number of our guests who were grateful of all of their hard work.

Made so special by having it here

By Ian and Emma, on 24 Aug 2016Date of Wedding - 28 May 2016

We had our wedding here and I'm so glad we chose the Crown as it was an amazing day. We couldn't fault a thing with the room, the staff or the venue itself. Our special day made so much more special having it here. We do need to mention Francesca and Robert as both were brilliant. All our guests commented on how brilliant the venue was. And the food! Oh my god! We couldn't have asked for anything more.

What a credit the staff are to this hotel! A big thanks to all of them, they worked so hard to make our daughter's wedding reception so special. Everyone we came into contact with was polite, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The behind the scenes staff cooking etc the food was amazing. I must mention, I think his name is Robert, he oversaw the day and I wish I had some of his energy!
