Perfect from start to finish
Now the dust has settled following Rebecca and Jamie’s wedding, my wife and I have had time to reflect on the whole occasion. From the day that Rebecca met with you and decided to have her wedding at the Hare and Hounds Hotel, everything has been handled with outstanding professionalism and a complete understanding to what was required. The actual wedding day was just about perfect from start to finish. The guy who seemed to be orchestrating everything was superb, his attention to detail was outstanding. But this was not just about one or two people, all of the staff involved at the hotel played a significant part in our enjoyment of this occasion. From reception, to Bar, Waiters, Housekeeping and Chefs/kitchen staff are all a credit to the hotel. Also, the hotel is magnificent, the décor, furnishing, seating, rooms and cottages in the grounds are stunning. So many people came up to me and commented on what a wonderful venue for a wedding. So, I would just like to thank you and everyone who was involved in what I can only describe as one of the best run hotels I have stayed in for a long time. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was done with a smile, wonderful. I would be grateful if you could make sure my comments are passed on to everyone concerned at the hotel.
