We both had a fantastic day
We both had a fantastic day. We were absolutely chuffed with how my parents had managed to keep the decoration a secret and it looked beautiful! Christine was lovely too so it was nice to have her on hand to check everything was running smoothly. I do apologise if we kept her/other staff waiting for us to decide when we were actually going to sit down and eat, and also in between courses! The food was so filling for the main we needed a long break before dessert. (The food was scrummy btw) 😊 Other than that I can’t think of any feedback really – just keep doing what you’re doing! It would have been nice to have met Nicola in person as I dealt so much with her before the big day. And there was a slight hiccup with the rooms on checkout – each of the party was asked to pay when it was actually settled by me beforehand but I believe that’s sorted now. Many thanks for being so accommodating and helping us to finally have a reception in amongst all the constant changes! Anna and Paul x

The hotel and its staff were fabulous.
The hotel and its staff were fabulous. All the safety aspects re COVID-19 were well thought out and made our stay even more pleasurable. We had a small intimate wedding reception for our son and his bride and they could not have made it any more special. Nothing was too much effort. We’ll definitely be coming back.

What an incredible team of wedding planners
We had our wedding here! What an incredible team of wedding planners (Amanda, Nicola, Claire, and the team) was amazing from the first meeting, they took all the stress out of planning the wedding .... communication was excellent and every whim was catered for! The whole day went smoothly thank you to Christine for being our host and looking after our guests! The food was incredible, the staff was always helpful! I would not change a single thing

Thank you for an amazing day
My partner and I after months of planning finally got married on Sat 26th October. The venue was amazing with plenty of friendly staff and what astounded us was the willingness to help. One or two mentions here one particularly to Nicola Poselthwaite your amazing and thought provoking help in putting together our amazing day you certainly deserve all the awards as in our eyes you were an angel. Second to Christine our host for the day you are efficient caring and compassionate in all you do. The food was amazing to and nobody went hungry the service second to none. You all ought to be so so proud of yourself xxxx

From when we first enquired about a wedding to the moment we checked out the morning after our wedding, the staff team were amazing. They were professional and helpful every step of the way, which helped to take the stress out of planning for us. The fact that they had such good suppliers included within their packages was perfect for us. The flowers and lighting was organised and delivered with such little fuss. Overall it meant that we could enjoy our day totally relaxed.
