Gibbon goes global!

Gibbon goes global!

19 Jul 2016

At Gibbon Bridge we have just hosted a truly international wedding for a family whose members are scattered across the globe.

It was the first time many of the relatives had seen each other in 14 years and – as with all our weddings - we were more than happy to go the extra mile to personalise the special day for them.

While most of our guests are UK based we do have ‘roaming regulars’ who visit each year from South Africa, America, Australia, Italy, Spain and France.

We always look forward to seeing our foreign friends and guiding them to the beauty spots of Bowland and beyond.

Foreign visitor figures are expected to rise this year according to official figures.

Last year our region saw 262,478 international visitors, reveal our friends at Marketing Lancashire.

And according to the latest figures from VisitBritain there has been strong growth from markets including the US, Germany and the United Arab Emirates.

The Office for National Statistics results show that from January to March this year visits from the US, the UK’s most valuable visitor market, grew by 9% to 542,000 compared to the same period last year.

"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.

"Exceptionally Enjoyable"

The effort, care and love that has been lavished on Gibbon Bridge by you and your staff is plain for all to see, experience and enjoy.  However, what we particularly wanted to record is the exceptional quality of your staff.  Your team is, without doubt, the very best I have had the pleasure to meet and to be looked after by.  I have been a corporate member of the Hotel Catering & Institutional Management Association since 1973.  Over the years I have visited and worked with numberous hotels all over the UK.  The team at Gibbon Bridge are the best of all those that I have experienced.  First and foremost, being friendly, caring and professional and, by being well trained and, importantly, well led.  You are to be heartily congratulated.
