Just a quick note to say thank you so much to all the staff involved for everything this weekend (and Kerri during the last 14 months!!) We're still on such a high and just had the most amazing time from start to finish! We're just at Heathrow waiting to jet off but I'll be doing a detailed review for you when we get back (Tom's already done one while we've been sitting here also!)

Just to say a massive thank you for everything you did related to our wedding. We had such a fantastic time and the hotel, outside venue and organisation could not have made it more special. Everything was brilliant and David and I have so many special moments to treasure. Thank you again and we can't wait to come back for our anniversary next year and for years to come!!!

We would just like to say a huge thank you for organising our Wedding Day to perfection last week. The whole day from start to finish was amazing, with attention to detail making it run so smoothly, and issue free. The fact that we were able to get married outside with the outstanding views was the icing on the cake. All our friends and family absolutely loved your venue, and also had a fantastic day to remember. We've also had many comments on how delicious the food was, which we fully agree with as everything really was delicious. Once again we cannot praise you high enough, and we can't wait to return for many an anniversary

Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you so much for everything that you did to make our day last Wednesday absolutely perfect, George, you worked so hard and were very patient with the secret ‘entertainment’, (sorry you had to be subjected to that!) everyone of our guests has said what a fantastic venue, service and food, everything was truly fantastic! Would you know the names of the registrars? They were such lovely ladies and we would like to send a thank you to them, we know one was Maureen but can’t remember the other lady. Thanks again and we’ll be back to stay again next August if not sooner!

We wanted to write to you following our wedding at Inn on the Lake on 4th August this year to thank you all for all your support in creating such a wonderful wedding day. We had a fantastic day, which ran like clockwork, and this is firmly down to the hotel team. Kerri was great at helping us organising everything and always being on hand to answer our questions. Jonathan was great on the day and really helped to make everything run smoothly. Everything was perfect for our big day, from the outside gazebo, dinner and making sure all of our personal decorations were out, and not to mention the fantastic food. All the staff were friendly and welcoming and the facilities were second to none. All our guests also commented on how well the day went and the friendliness of the staff. Thank you again for making this one of the most memorable days of our lives and apologies for the delay in letting you know! We have attached an image from our wedding as a token of our thanks. All the best and we look forward to visiting again soon!

I just wanted to send a mail to say a huge THANK YOU to all of the team who have helped myself and my husband out since booking our wedding with yourselves in May 2015. We got married on 3rd July 2016 and couldn’t have asked for anything more from the hotel and all of its staff. We had a truly magical day and all of our guests enjoyed the views, the food and the service. On the lead up to the big day we had help from Gary, Kerri, George, Teresa and Jonathan…all of whom were a pleasure to deal with. George was our wedding co-ordinator for the day and he kept everything to schedule, I didn’t need to worry about a single thing – so big thanks for that George as I am known to be a tad controlling! We’ve left you a review on Facebook from our 1st stay (3rd July 2015) and we’ve also left one on Trip Advisor as we’d like everyone to know how great you all are! Best regards and hope to see you all again really soon,

Thank you for all your planning, flexibility, patience and and advice prior to and during our wedding. We had the most fabulous day and the rain didn't make a bit of difference. In fact it added to the intimacy of the day. Everyone commented on what a beautiful venue it is, the fantastic staff and what a fantastic weekend they had. You organised the day wonderfully and it was lovely not to have to think of everything, where we needed to be or what we needed to do. Thanks again for everything.
