  • Sherrell and Rob

    From the very start the team were professional and courteous, not raising an eyebrow with some of the wacky things I wanted. We had a taster meal that helped us decide our wedding breakfast. The day itself went perfect, run in a professional and friendly manor. The room for the ceremony was just stunning, we were married in the ballroom.

    They helped source tablecloths to match my colour scheme to make sure it was just as I wanted it. The wedding breakfast itself was divine, every guest commented on the quality. No cold food, they did well with serving 65 guests. The day flowed perfect we had an evening buffet for 150 and a dessert buffet - again the food was gorgeous! Followed by the tastiest canapés ever!

    The bridle suite was lovely! Even the breakfast the next day was gorgeous! Every detail was perfect and just what we wanted. I would highly recommend this hotel as a wedding venue to anyone. We will be returning for both meals and hopefully the odd night stay! Thank you all for the hard work!

  • Amy and Mark

    Me and my hubby had our wedding reception here and were not disappointed! From the very start when we were merely enquiring about our booking the team couldn't have been more attentive! This continued right up until the actual day. They were organised, friendly and had great attention for detail.

    The day ran smoothly and on time. The girls serving cocktails and food were friendly and professional, the room was decorated to perfection, the food-oh my goodness where do I start, amazing, especially the duck starter, beef and Yorkshire puddings-all our guests commented on the quality of the food to us! We could not fault anything about the day! Our parents and a few other guests stayed at the hotel and said that the rooms were lovely as too was the breakfast!

    We would highly recommend this hotel as a fabulous wedding venue. The hotel is nicely decorated and well maintained, the staff are attentive, the food is very good and the grounds whilst relatively small provide a great backdrop for photos!

  • Megan and James

    Thank you so much for putting on a beautiful venue for our wedding, it was absolutely perfect. The Ballroom looked stunning, the food was excellent and your expertise made our day run perfect from start to finish. We had lovely comments from our guests all day! We couldn't have wished for anything better. Once again, Thank you so very much.

  • Natalie and Tom

    Just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you have done for us leading up and on our big day. Everything ran so smoothly we had the best day of our lives. You were so kind and professional, nothing was too much trouble, we really appreciated it.
