All the guests had so many compliments about the day, in particular the food which everybody loved. We were so happy with every aspect of our day and couldn't have wished for anything more. Once again, thank you for all your help in the planning of our wedding and for the perfect day.

Allison, Thank you so much! We had a fantastic day on Saturday and our guests said it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to! All of your staff were amazing and nothing we asked for was too much trouble for them. Please pass on our thanks to Andy and Emily, and also to Andy from concierge who was fab! We can’t thank you enough for all of your help in organising what was the best day of our lives. It couldn’t have been any better and we wouldn’t have changed a single thing.

Hi Allison Thank you for your e-mail. I had a truly wonderful day, it was so amazing. I have some thank you cards that I will be bringing in. I feel it is important to say a huge thank you to The Queens for such an amazing experience, from start to finish. I won't forget any of you, even the ladies on reception who helped me. But most of all I will remember Jay, who I have to say Allison was an absolute star and pleasure to meet and have as our support throughout the day. I want to say thank you to you Allison and to Jay and all his team who helped on the day, he really did the best job, everybody said that they had an amazing day, so memorable and it was the best experience and day of our lives. Everybody had such a great time and can't stop talking about it. Our room was just incredible, everything, the music, the food everyone loved the food. I loved the food. It was perfect, the rooms, the room for the meal, the table we set everything, the photopragher was happy with all his space, it was great, really really great. I am so happy with the Queens. So please say thank you to all especially Jay, he was an absolute star and such a lovely, calm and supportive man. Many thanks Allison to you and kind regards Marissa.

By Marie Towers, on 03 Jul 2014

Allison did all our pre wedding planning and Katie was with us on the day. They were both so lovely, helpful nothing was too much trouble for them, Allison was really organised beforehand and helped all the planning for the day run very smoothly and Katie was really kind and as the bride made me feel very looked after from beginning to end which was so important to me as i was very nervous before we got married. Katie also put our cupcake stand up and down for us which she didn't have to do but we really appreciated that. They both deserve recognition for how lovely and professional they are, thanks to both of them.

Dear Joanna I'd just like to take this opportunity to thank you, and everyone at The Queens, who was involved with Sara & Ashley's Wedding on 22nd June. The Queens Hotel was absolutely The Ideal Venue for The Wedding! The rooms included in our package allowed us to accommodate all our needs, and helped to avoid delays. The covered chairs looked so elegant, in both The Palm Court, and in the Ballroom. All the staff at The Queens were lovely to deal with, and always so helpful. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them, and everything was done with a smile! Our guests from London loved staying at the hotel over the weekend. They were full of compliments about their lovely rooms, the delicious breakfast, and the handy location of The Queens in relation to the shops, nightlife, and the Railway Station! They all said that they felt as if they were on holiday!! Our rooms on the Q Club floor were amazing! The comfy beds ensured that Sara and I both slept well the night before The Wedding. The Bar facility on Q Floor was wonderful, and Sara's close friends all came to a pre-wedding Pyjama Party in there on the Saturday evening. This was great for keeping her from becoming pre-occupied and nervous about the actual wedding, as she was so busy playing games and having fun! The delicious Continental Breakfast, which we ate outside on the balcony on Sunday morning, was simply "the icing on the cake"! It has been a most memorable weekend for us all, and we would definitely recommend The Queens to anyone who is planning a wedding! Many thanks again for all your help. Kind regards and best wishes Angela & Joe Morris
