Nothing was ever a bother
From the moment we stepped foot into the white horse we were treated amazing, they really topped everything for our wedding. Perfect from start to finish. Nothing was ever a bother, they constantly were making sure everything was ok or if we need anything. I just want to thank everyone at the White Horse but most of all Kimberly for making our wedding everything we could of ever wanted.

BIG THANKS TO ALL AT THE WHITE HORSE HOTEL
A Mystical Wedding Day Tour. It all started months ago with detailed planning using the most excellent Wedding Organiser, KIMBERLY. She looked after every detail, music, room arrangements, table layouts, food requirements etc, etc. She was brilliant, what was even more pleasing was the terrific service continued for all aspects of both the evening before the event and all through our Wedding Day. The staff in the bars, dining room, breakfast room and the wee pub were exemplary in their warmth and desire to please both me and my husband but all our guests. People from USA, London, Scotland and local residents. Everybody commented on how well the event was organised, The food and menu selection was wonderful, served hot and in a well synchronised manner, TOP Mark's. So I CANNOT RECOMMEND TOO HIGHLY THE WHITE HORSE HOTEL for a wedding venue. Congratulations Selina for putting together a top-class team, in wonderful facilities, who all seemed dedicated to ensuring our day was a success. EVEN after we returned to the hotel two days later, various members of staff came along asking DID YOU ENJOY THE DAY? There was nobody instructing them to chat to us, they just continued with the top level service we had experienced throughout our marvellous Wedding Day. BIG THANKS TO ALL AT THE WHITE HORSE HOTEL

Absolutely 100%
Well what can I say.... we had the most perfect day on Saturday that I wish I could do it all over again!! We first met Kimberly at the white horse nearly 3 years ago and she helped us decide that this was the perfect venue for us the details and the time she took to go through the little details meant a lot to us and we remembered her name as she told us to call her biscuits! So she wasn't only kind an helpful she brought the fun element into it as well and made us feel comfortable to put our day in her hands. On the day it couldn't have went any smoother everything was on time the food was beautiful and the attention to details that Kimberly and the staff put in was absolutely 100% I would definitely recommend anyone looking for the perfect day u will be well looked after by Kimberly and the staff at the White Horse you won't regret it!! So I finish this off by letting u all know that we are extremely grateful for everything you done for us thank you so so much xxx — with Josh Willis.

Outstanding Service and Event management
This weekend a friend of mine held his civil partnership celebration at the White Horse Hotel. From start to finish the staff, led by the fantastic Kimberly, were attentive, well organised and completely dedicated to making this the best event it could be! The venue was beautiful, the food delicious (Kimberly even proactively offered alternatives for the youngest guests and checked in regularly to make sure everything was ok and if there was anything else that could be done) and you really got the sense that they cared about making your experience there as good as it could be! I cannot recommend them enough! I did not stay on site, but those who did also had nothing but good things to say, and it was less than £10 to get there from Derry centre by taxi. Thank you again to the whole team at the White Horse for a truly memorable weekend!
