  • Tina and Mark Roberts – 10/12/2016

    We had our Christmas themed wedding at Deans place. The whole thing was better than I ever imagined it could be! Every bit was fantastic and we can't praise you enough! From start to the end of our stay the next day, the planning and attention to detail, the staff, the service; everything was nothing short of amazing! Nothing was too much trouble and they bent over backwards to ensure everything ran to time... I wanted a dream wedding and I got better if that's even possible.

  • James and Alice Wren – 16/09/ 2016

    I wanted to send a message and say thank you so much for helping us to organise our wedding over the last year and a bit! You were absolutely brilliant and always answered all of my emails so quickly and nicely. It would have been a lot more stressful without you as you knew exactly how everything should be done! And the actual day wasn't stressful for us at all and we really enjoyed ourselves.

    We have had lots of guests commenting about how smoothly the day went and how nice the hotel is.

  • Father of the Bride – 27/08/2016

    We really must congratulate you all on such a fabulous weekend and wedding day for my daughter Catherine and new daughter-in-law Alpha. Your hard work and professionalism was quite evident and really paid off much to our delight and enjoyment. You have a lovely hotel, rooms, gazebo, gardens/pool area and deserve your obvious success. Excellent breakfast as well. We all had such a wonderful time and the wedding day/evening was just spectacular with all the events Catherine, Alpha and our families had planned and you allowed to take place. What great memories we will all have for a very long time to come! It was just priceless and I’m sure a few of us are feeling quite blue after such elation!

    We would recommend your hotel to anyone wishing to have their wedding ceremony and reception in such a lovely venue. Of course we were blessed with the lovely weather as well.
    Keep up the good work. We hope to visit again some sunny day. Thanks!
