BEFORE THE EVENT For the 6 months leading up to the ceremony, we never waited more than 6 or 7 hours for an email response to any of our questions. The level of communication was absolutely fantastic throughout. We... More

Had stayed before, and needed the tranquility. Part of the fantastic Classic Lodge group, Roundthorn is great for peace and quiet. Staff are excellent, both the evening and morning ladies were efficient and friendly, and helpful in choosing the food. Evening meal is more high quality bar style than 'haute cuisine', but served in a fantastic atmosphere. We were alone... More
