Our perfect day
We can’t recommend the hotel enough as a wedding venue! From day one we were treated like V.I.P’s and were made to feel like nothing was too much.Sent on 05/10/2019
Claire was excellent! She was there for all our needs and any worries we had were swiftly cleared up.
Whether it be over the phone, in person or in an email, Claire made us feel like the most important couple on the planet. It was a real shame that she was on holiday the week of our wedding but she couldn’t have put us in better hands by giving us Adam to take charge of our special day.
Adam was fantastic and made the whole day flow in the order we wanted it to. Again, nothing was too much for him and we really felt our happiness was the most important thing. It was the little touches he added that really blew us away and made us feel really special and extremely well looked after.
The food was exceptional and all our guests commented on how delicious it was. We had guests attend who had dietary requirements and again this wasn’t an issue and their meals were just as wonderful. For our buffet, the guests with dietary requirements were really looked after as ours was all meat, they were asked what they would like and were given a selection of food fitting their needs that went down really well.
The whole day was just absolutely perfect and we both had such an amazing day.
Every member of staff we encountered from day one were superb. From reception, bar staff, chefs, waiters and waitresses, cleaners, Adam and Claire and everyone in between were all so warm, friendly and an absolute credit to the hotel.

We had a wonderful day and can’t thank you and your staff enough!
Everyone had a great day and made such positive comments about the day and how lovely the staff were.
Thanks for cards! I must pop in with a thank you card!
My brother and his partner were so impressed that hopefully they will book their wedding with you!
