    Firstly i would like to say a huge thank you from both Chevelle & I as our wedding day went off with out a hitch and all of the staff that worked from the friday when we arrived to the day of the wedding and right up till we left on the monday are a credit to the venue. All we have had is excellent feed back from all our guest from the rooms to the service and how accommodating all the staff were, all of the food was exceptional and again the feedback has been amazing. It truly was a day to remember and the whole atmosphere and ease of the venue all contributed to how great our day was.
