Hi Amanda, Richard and team, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our Wedding day so special, we enjoyed every minute! Nothing was ever too much trouble, the food was amazing, Even the buffet was superb. Kristian, the DJ was fab and all of the staff were lovely.

Excellent Service.
Venue Service

By Audrrey Mortima., on 26 May 2009

I just wanted to send a brief thank you to you all for our anniversary meal last Saturday. I really apperciated the fact that you managed to cater for all the food intolerences/allergies with which you where presented. Everyone commented on how much they had enjoyed the meal. Also the service was excellent, without being obtrusive, a balance that is often hard to achieve.

Important Event!
Venue Service

By South Oxfordshire District Council, on 26 May 2009

May I say how grateful I am to you for allowing your hotel to host this event last night. It was a huge success, and all the people I spoke to were very impressed with the conference suite and the very clean modern look to the place. Many of whom had never been into the Spread Eagle before. They went away very content and I expect that you can bank on further bookings. Clearly the wine left them with a nice rosy feeling, the buffet also went down very well. Also the staff were most pleasant and helpful throughout the evening. Please convey my thanks to them all.

A Wonderful Occasion.
Venue Service

By Matt and Dee Povey, on 17 May 2009

We''d just like to say a big thank you to you and all your staff for making our wedding such a wonderful occasion. We couldn''t have asked for a better ceremony and reception, and the way you took all the organisation off our hands and ran it so superbly ment we could relax and enjoy the event. We are very glad we picked the Spread Eagle as our venue and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone else.
