The perfect day

My husband and I got married at The Palace Hotel on 12/05/17. The day was truly magical. Everything ran so smoothly and that is thanks to the hotel's amazing staff. In particular Fiona, our wedding co-ordinator and George, our incredible toastmaster. Nothing at all was too much trouble for either of them. They genuinely cared and wanted to make sure we had our perfect day. We definitely did!! The turn around of rooms was so well done, the food was simply gorgeous, we've had so many comments off friends and family!, tge added touches were fab too. The bridal suite was lovely (the only suggestion for improvement would be to add a bridal hook or rail to hang your dress on!) The grounds and hotel itself are stunning also, which made for fantastic wedding pictures. Thank you Fiona, George and all the rest of the team that helped make our day so special. I would recommend a Palace Hotel wedding in a heartbeat.
Louise and John Welsh.

We are local to the area and the Palace Hotel was the place to have our wedding. We booked our wedding package in August and the people we have dealt with Dominic, Alistair and Fiona have been really helpful, nothing is too much trouble and George who was our toastmaster was fantastic. The whole day was just amazing and flawless the food was lovely and absolutely nothing was too much trouble, from the bar staff to the waiters / waitresses they were all helpful and polite. We can highly recommend the Palace Hotel for a wedding, a special occasion or just a chance to enjoy the Peak District. Thank you to all of the staff at the Palace Hotel who made our wedding day so special.

We have only just managed to sit down to type this email after our little minimoon but we both wanted to say a massive thank you to yourself and your team. We couldn't be happier with how the whole day was managed and the excellent organisation, beforehand and also during with you guys in the front seat.

You have all done such a fantastic job and nothing was too much trouble for you, and we wanted to ensure that you knew it didn't go unnoticed.

We both came away feeling so happy with the whole weekend and a lot of that is down to you and your team.

Again, many thanks for everything! I'm sure you will be making a lot more couples happy if our wedding was anything to go by.
