Magical Wedding
Yesterday our daughters wedding was held at this hotel. Firstly I would like to say my husband and I have stayed here before when visiting our daughter so were confident that the services would be perfect. The wedding day from start to finish was the most magical experience, Dave , Anita and their fantastic team looked after us (bridal party) from arrival on Saturday, for the wedding on Sunday until we departed today (Monday) at lunchtime. Food was delicious, plentiful, hot and served properly. Rooms were comfortable and housekeeping excellent. So thanks again Dave, Anita and your fabulous team. See you soon.
