Reviews

  • Steve and Kirsty Johnson

    We recently had our wedding here. We would highly recommend Jake, our wedding coordinator, as nothing was ever too much and he made sure our special day went as planned, with everything as we wanted also. The staff on the day were also amazing and the hotel rooms were great as well, with exceptionally good food for our set menu and buffet. We would definitely recommend this hotel. Special thanks again to Jake for making our day so special and to all the staff who helped on our day at DoubleTree.

  • Rachel Coventry

    Amazing. We had our wedding over two days here. The wedding planner Jake was amazing, he couldn't do any more for us. He was always there when needed. The hotel was just so right and such a lovely place to have your wedding. I just wish I could do it all over again! All our guests remarked how lovely the hotel and staff were.

  • Vicky and Lynsey Mills

    From start to finish, the staff and organisers have been supportive, kind and helpful. The day was perfect and this was made easier by the staff around who were organised. I would recommend it as a perfect wedding setting. Food was amazing and all our guests had an amazing time. No job was too big or too small for these amazing people. They're a credit to Hilton, especially Jake and Lorna who have been so supportive and kept us very calm. We would like to both say a massive thank you.
