Gardiner Wedding!
Just want to thank you both again and your staff for all your care and attention over the weekend. Nothing seemed too much trouble, and all done with a friendly smile and every attention to detail. Our guests have all commented on that. Your lovely comfortable Hotel seemed like home from home (only, with staff!) and your thought and organisation for the party on Friday night meant that it was a great success. We didn't get a chance to thank you personally Andi, but really appreciated you being around for us into the 'small hours'!! You both looked after so well throughout, and Lawrence and I can't believe our luck in finding just the right place for our family to stay for such a special family gathering in beautiful Cumbria.
