Excellent, excellent,excellent

If you are looking for character and charm then this is the place for you, We had our whole day here in 2005 and we were blown away by the service and the price. We could afford to have twice the amount of people at our wedding than we could have done at the moat house or marriot in peterborough. Bruno the manager could not do enough for us and because of him the whole day went really smoothly, he even entertained the children for us. A**** We definatly recommend this one as opposed to a registry office or other hotels! We are going back for our anniversary this year!

Absolutley Fantastic place for a wedding

Fantastic value for money. The staff at the hotel made our day really one to remember. The rooms are beautifull (both for wedding and reception), and the wedding organiser couldn't do enough for us. A+++++++
