    Nothing was too much trouble!

    I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the Daffodil wedding team, on behalf of myself and my new husband, for making our wedding day so perfect! Everything went so smoothly, exactly as we’d hoped it would, and the service we and our guests received on the day was amazing. So many of our guests have passed on compliments regarding the food and organisation of the day – Joe did such a great job announcing us in, and looking after Martin, my dad and the best man before the speeches, and the Food & Beverages Manager really took care of us at the evening reception – nothing was too much trouble!

    Dear Katie
    We wanted to thank you very warmly for all you did to ensure that our wedding was such a wonderful day. We loved every minute of it!
    The day went smoothly largely thanks to your calm efficiency and the hard work put in by you, your manager and your colleagues at the Daffodill. You went over and above what we could have hoped for.
    Very many thanks for your help in making the day a highlight of our life memories.
    Very best wishes,
    Mr & Mrs Bernstein

    The Daffodil are truly special

    Thankyou so so much for what you did on our wedding day we really cant thank you enough. From start to finish with the whole process of booking the wedding until completion you have been an absolute god send. The Daffodil are truly special to have you on their team, you are such a credit to them. The day really wouldn't have been the same without you there so thankyou for making our day so special.
    I must also thank Joe who was there every step of the way on the day too, Richard said he looked after them form morning until night and for that we are very grateful.
    I find it difficult to put into words just how much thanks we owe you. It really was the most amazing day, even with the showers and cloud cover it was a day that we will never forget and we owe that to you and Joe for making it that way. Thankyou very much for the photo frame gift, that's such a lovely touch and something we will treasure.
    Thankyou very much for everything we hope to see you again when we visit.
    So much thanks to send you,
    Mr & Mrs Shaw x

    Our special day was perfect

    Now that the craziness has died down I just wanted to take the time to thank you all at the Daffodil. Everything for our special day was perfect, from the food, to the service and setting. We loved every minute of it and really appreciate all the amazing and hard work that went into it! We will most certainly be back next year to celebrate our anniversary!

    We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding day so very special and enjoyable. In fact the whole journey from the time that we booked The Daffodil in October 2015 was made totally pain free by Ashleigh and her team! Our confidence in Marcus and his team was also very well justified with the most special wedding buffet presented on the day. Our guests were constantly reporting how well they were looked after and how delicious the food was, not only at the wedding buffet but also in the restaurant. You have all made many friends in our wedding guests and Dawn & I will never forget what you have all done for us! We will be back!

    My husband and I got married at the Daffodil Hotel in July and it was an amazing day. The team were very attentive and sorted lots of things for us on the run up to the wedding and on the day itself, this took the stress away which was much appreciated. Food at the wedding reception was gorgeous, thank you to the chef for the tasty, well presented food. We will have fond memories of our wedding so thank you all for making it a day to remember!

    Perfect Wedding Day

    We wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for all of your hard work in making our wedding day perfect in every way! We had the most amazing day and couldn't have asked for anything more. Yourself and the team at the hotel were absolutely sensational and made everything run seamlessly. We must mention Jordan too who was absolutely fantastic - his attention to detail was second to none - he really couldn't do enough for us - amazing! I'm not sure if you were still there for my Dad's speech - but in case you missed it, and I quote, 'thank you to all the staff at the fantastic Daffodil Hotel and in particular to Ashleigh for having to cope with the exacting standards of my lovely daughter!' :-) Thanks again Ashleigh - we really can't recommend yourself and the hotel highly enough

    Amazing Day

    Ashley and I would like to thank you and everyone involved in the wedding. We had the most amazing day and it was everything we hoped it would be. Could you please give our thanks to Jordan as he was brilliant with us the whole day. He did a fantastic job. Also, could you give our compliments to the chef. The food was absolutely beautiful and all our guests commented that it was the best wedding meal they'd had. We're so glad we chose to have our wedding at the Daffodil. It was such a perfect setting I didn't want to leave. The sun was shining all day which made it even better. Thanks again for all your help in arranging our special day. It was perfect.
