Sisters Wedding

We stayed there the 28th 29th Dec 2026 for my sisters wedding. It was amazing the whole event from us turning up the day before the big day to us leaving lunch time the day after. The hotel staff was so helpful and nice, nothing was to much trouble. I would like to thank Jess and especially Alice who was the MC for the wedding for assisting us. Good choice at breakfast hot and cold, all cooked fresh. The meal we had for the wedding breakfast was excellent so tasty. The rooms are nice and very clean, if you are thinking of getting married I would definitely recommend the bridal suite it is so spacious the extra room Is needed when getting the bride ready. Even though it was a winter wedding we used the stunning gardens for the photos. This hotel is an ideal place to get married all year round. The wedding day was perfect.l would definitely return.
