    Brilliant all round. Over the long period of planning before our big day, the hotel and staff were fantastic and on our special day the organisation of our event was second to none, everyone looked after ourselves and our guests superbly. I would recommend to anyone the option of hiring the whole hotel, there are other hotels that offer the same but I am sure that the competition would be hard pressed to come anywhere near the value for money this hotel gave to us. Nothing was too much trouble, and it was more like a wedding weekend; something we will remember for the rest of our lives.

    We had an absolutely fantastic day! We held the ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening do all at the Hotel.
    The whole day ran like clock work, thanks to the close attention to detail and hard work by Lisa and her team. Not one detail was over looked and nothing was too much trouble.The Wedding breakfast was as good as it was when we went for the menu sampling evening. The breakfast was very good, fresh fruit (I mean fresh fruit, not tinned grapefruit etc) cereals, pastries and full English. We found all of the staff to be friendly, efficient and very helpful. The whole day was very well organised, but not too stiff and formal. It was a very relaxed, stress free wedding and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

    We had our wedding here on Friday 25th March and it was amazing from start to finish. Lisa and her staff were amazing; we were so well looked after and nothing was a problem. We would highly recommend to anyone. Even our two 1yr old daughters loved it there! Massive praise to Lisa, she was amazing.
