    I have been in the hospitality industry for 30 years and as such I am well qualified to know the difference between a nice hotel and a quality venue that really goes out of it's way to exceed your expectations.

    Tom and his team made our special day extra special with the excellent service and magnificent food and drinks.

    Our son and daughter-in-law chose the Lordleaze Hotel for their wedding ceremony and reception. What a lovely day on 25 July 2015. Tom Owen and his team did everything to make this a marvellous occasion. Even down to helping with the tin-cans for the rear of the newly-weds' car!

    We all had a great time thanks to Tom and his team.

    What a great wedding and reception at Lordleaze. Everyone is still talking about the reception and evening party. Fun was had by all. And I am still laughing at Dad on the dance floor ! Was great to see everyone having a great time.
