The most amazing venue for your wedding

Wow I don’t know where to start, from first visiting to booking the venue, and then through to the big day we don’t have a bad word to say, exceptional experience that we had, Chelsea and all the staff were amazing. The food was delicious and the whole day was the best day of our lives. Every single guest commented on the hotel as well as the staff and food with many saying it was the best wedding they’d been to, forever grateful to the royal toby for making our day a dream come true x

Personal, thoughtful and attentive

Everyone we dealt with were fabulous! Our day couldn’t have gone better - I can’t believe how quickly it went though! We were able to make changes and tailor our day to suit us, on a few occasions - not be stuck to a rigid package system. You definitely bat above your average regarding value for money, and the staff I can’t thank enough, and I will never forget their contribution to our day.

Jordan and Alan in particular were an ever-present point of call, and kept things running smoothly. Our manager for the day was great to, tending to us all the time and making sure we were happy. These people and this place have left an indelible mark on our lives, thank you so much.

Highly, highly recommended!

Absolutely amazing. The best day of my life!

My wedding day was more than I could of dreamed of. The staff here are amazing, my wedding coordinators, Jordan, who organised everything for the day to utter perfection, is fantastic; and Joe, who I only met on the day, was fantastic: every need or want was met by him throughout the day evening. I feel blessed to have had these people make what can be a stressful time a perfect day. Also the food and service was beautiful too. I’d recommend to people to have there special day here.

It Was Absolutely Perfect!

Jordan, what can I say about the day? It was absolutely perfect thanks to you, Joe and everyone at the Royal Toby. We still get tearful when we think about it.

I’m sure many people have said this but it feels like an out of body experience!! As much as anyone says try to take it all in it feels like a blur!

We can’t thank you all enough!

Love, the Smiths xxx

The staff are out of this world!

I just want to thank you all for what a wonderful wedding we had!

The staff are out of this world.

The breakfast staff were lovely in the restaurant and so were the evening staff.

The waitresses during our wedding breakfast were lovely and always went the extra mile.

I think the mans name was joe who was in charge that day went above and beyond to make our day perfect.

Lastly a big thank you to you Chelsea without you our day wouldn't have been as magical as it was.

All the guests loved the hotel the surroundings and the staff.

We couldn't of asked for a better wedding, it was everything we dreamed of and more.

Thank you.

It was everything we wanted and more!

We would both like to start by thanking you for everything from the first meeting.

Your help from the very first moment we enquired has been brilliant and you helped us so much And our day couldn’t of gone any better it was perfect and it was everything we wanted and more.

The attention to detail yourself and all the team put into our day was incredible, it was beautiful and we both loved it all.

We’ve had guests, including a lot of older guests, who I’m guessing have been to many weddings tell us how good everything was from the decorations to the food.

Please could you extend our thanks to all the team, from the bar staff to the chefs and all the ones who was there for us throughout the day.

We can’t tell you all how much we appreciate it.

Attention to detail and professionalism!

Thank you so much, just spent the weekend with you for our Son's wedding. Attention to detail and professionalism with a wonderful friendly atmosphere in every area. All our family made the same comments to us. It was obvious that everyone got on together, in fact one of the housekeepers commented they were ‘like a family’. The staff for the wedding looked after every detail including collecting the gifts and cards together for us. Cannot thank you all enough for making this special event perfect.
