I first stumbled across The Courtyard when looking for a venue to run my networking group meetings - they were the only ones to respond to a general enquiry that I had put out to other venues. I didn't even know the place existed until I Google, but when I visited, I was so pleased with the location, the staff, the ambience and the general high quality of the hotel. (I use other venues across the county that are not anywhere near the standards provided here).

They have bent over backwards to accommodate me and make the experience for my clients the best it can be. Of course there have been some hiccups and mistakes along the way as the staff are only human - each time the issue has been dealt with a very professional way and amends made accordingly; hence my "excellent" rating.

I've read some of the less than satisfactory reviews and am surprised that others have had the experience they have had - the food particularly has been of a high standard, both for the breakfasts and other meals that I have had there.

I guess you can't please all of the people all of the time!

All I can say is - if you have never been to The Courtyard before - give it a go, be it for meal, a drink, a room, a wedding or any other function!

The staff are friendly, welcoming and helpful and you don't feel they are just doing a job as they actually smile and take time to engage with you! Customer service is pretty dire in most places, it's still alive here.

the actual place is very nice.It looks welcoming as you walk into it but our experience when we got inside was not quite the same.We sat for nearly 5 mins at the bar as the barman completely ignored us until my husband said excuse me ,we have a reservation at 2.00pm.I know he was pulling some pints but it would have been so much nicer if he had welcomed us and explained he would be with us in a few moments.We were then shown to our table and we literally had to wave to waitress to order anything.There only seemed to be two waitresses doing the whole of the dinner time covers which was quite ridiculous.Saying all this the food was very good but after the carvery we decided enough was enough so we left.The menu we felt was very limited only about three different things on each couse.If the service hadn't been so awful it would have been very high up.

As parents of the bride you can only hope that the 'big day' goes as smoothly as possible and all the planning undertaken proves to be time well spent. To say that the day could not have been better would be an understatement. It was perfect. This is a huge and genuine compliment to the owners and each and every member of staff at The Courtyard. We now have a wealth of fabulous memories and so very much of this comes down to the venue, Lee, Hayley and all the team working there. Nothing was too much trouble. Bearing in mind we had the ceremony there followed by a sit down meal for 100 guests and 160 for the evening the staff took it all in their stride and we have received compliment after compliment from everyone who shared the day with us. We also took all of the hotel rooms and they were also first class. We had a fabulous day and our daughter and son-in-law had the wedding of their dreams. A massive thank you to the team at The Courtyard because you deserve it. Andrew and Karen Clarke.
