  • Kelly Warner – 11/2016

    From the moment we first booked our wedding reception we experienced first class service and knew we had the best venue. We both have extremely high standards and the hotel and staff really did deliver, many of our party stayed for more than one night and all had the highest praise for their rooms…The service on our wedding day was top notch and all food was served piping hot with good portion sizes and in a timely manner. Every single member of staff we dealt with was friendly and attentive, nothing was too much trouble and it's clear that a high standard is placed on them. They deliver at every turn. In summary this is a wonderful hotel with extremely helpful staff, great food, clean accommodation and all at an extremely competitive rate.

  • Val B - 06/2015

    The staff helped to make this a very special day. They did everything we asked for and more for this wedding reception and everyone had a special day. We chose this hotel having looked at others locally because of the friendly atmosphere, value for money, and accessibility. We were not disappointed.
