Our family held my daughters wedding here last week, which included some of the party staying at the hotel. James and his team couldnt have been more helpful and the whole event went very smoothly from start to finish. They were attentive and made everything look really special. They also allowed us to add the extra touches ourselves instead of insisting that they provide them at additional cost. We had almost the total run of the hotel and nothing was too much trouble.
The food for the wedding party was equal to that I have had elsewhere for a lot more money. The cost of the wedding breakfast and buffet was as reasonable as it can be when the word "wedding" comes in to the equation.
Yes James and his wife do need to address some of the issues that occur when you are managing a business within a very old and demanding building and there are some areas that could do with a lick of paint and freshening up. However, the family atmosphere that exists here, far outweighs any minor cosmetic work that needs to be done. If I were to give one tip to the owners it would be to update their website and make sure that it is kept updated as they are most probably missing a lot of bookings due to it not being kept updated with all the latest news.
Thank you for all your help in making my daughter and now son in law's day so special.
