My husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Terra Nova All Suite Hotel in October 2013. We were attracted to the hotel as it has a well balanced blend of modern and historic features making it a beautiful location for a wedding. We decided to have our wedding on the Starlight Roof Terrace at Terra Nova as we wished to be amongst the strikingly beautiful and well maintained grounds that surround Terra Nova. I stayed at the hotel the night before the wedding with my bridal party which included 3 bridesmaids, my mother, my mother's friend and I. We stayed 3 to a room.
ROOMS: Clean, beautifully presented rooms with modern bathroom facilities, wonderful décor with black marble tops and luxurious bedding adorn with a designer piece headboard. Both rooms were presented with fresh tropical cut flowers and all mod-cons were available e.g. mini fridge, kettle and tea services along with self-controlled air con and wifi access. My husband and I were also giving a complementary nights stay after the wedding for our honeymoon and came back to a beautifully decorated room with a bottle of champagne on ice :)
FOOD: On arrival we were presented with a platter of fresh fruit per guest. Room service was available 24hr including kitchen service. Complementary buffet styled breakfast provided an array of continental and Jamaican hot and cold breakfast treats. With the well advised help from Arlene Wynter, we were able to select a wedding menu that catered to our guests perfectly by providing traditional dishes along with those that are palatable to British guests. We also had a selection of alcoholic beverages for our guest and were able to modify the drinks bar list so that it included our favourite drinks.
HOSPITALITY: All staff at the Terra Nova were helpful and understanding. In particular Jhanelle Francis (Sales Co-ordinator) and Arlene Wynter (Banqueting & Sales Manger) were extremely helpful in assisting with the planning and arrangements of our wedding day and really went above and beyond to help calm my nerves as an overseas bride. Also Farrah Francis kindly arranged for our rooms to be upgraded to Junior suite rooms which was a delightful surprise! As a young couple, we were 'chaotically organised' on the day of the wedding but all hotel staff were hands on in helping us to organise and orchestrate the day, which ensured it all went perfectly! :)
OVERALL OPINION: If you are looking for a hotel that is as impressive in its structure, as it is in overall hospitality Terra Nova All Suites Hotel is definitely the place for you! My guests and I would definitely stay again!
