  • Bride - 2016

    We got married here in August 2016, we had the perfect wedding day. From start to finish everything was taken care of by the wonderful staff there.

    Our wedding planner was brilliant, Francesca thought of everything and went through every step of the day with us. Our toastmaster Mervin was a joy to have and helped along the proceedings for us. I couldn’t find any fault with any of the service they provided. Mo was an absolute diamond before and during the course of the day… he worked so hard. Everyone made me and my husband feel so very special and kept me very calm on my special day.

    Our rooms were really lovely we had everything we needed. The food was amazing and so many of our friends and family commented on how good the food was, we were more than impressed.
