"Sincere & Massive Thanks"

Please accept our sincere and massive thanks for all you did to make our wedding day so special.  Your hotel really is the perfect venue and we wouldn't have changed a thing; we and our guests enjoyed it thoroughly from start to finish.  Many thanks again.

"Wedding Venue"

We stayed at this hotel for two nights to celebrate our friends wedding. The room was magnificent! On two floors with a lounge and bathroom on the ground floor and a massive bedroom with a super king size 4 poster bed upstairs. The gardens are absolutely gorgeous with a water feature, a pergola for the ceremony, and a little river running at the bottom. The food was excellent and the service impeccable. Janet Simpson the owner must be the hardest working lady in the world, she gets stuck in and helps make the lovely breakfasts. We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. This is the place to get married, if you want to do it properly!
