We had our wedding at the Green House and I cannot recommend this hotel enough. I have to start this review by saying that the Green House a "green" hotel, where sustainability is high on the agenda and the food is local and mostly organic. As we are passionate about these things, we decided to check it out as a wedding venue - and instantly fell in love with the place! The location is close to the beach, yet it's tucked away from the main road. The hotel has such a lovely feel about it - the rooms are beautifully decorated (with home made biscuits and organic cotton), everything is clean and uncluttered and the staff are simply amazing.
Our main dealings were with Helen, the manager, who was very friendly, easy going and helpful. Helen took the time and effort to arrange everything just as we wanted it and it was a pleasure dealing with her. She never lost her smile and played a big part in the wedding going smoothly. We cannot thank her enough. Everybody we dealt with was very friendly and the service we received was of an excellent standard. Even though standards are high, I have to stress how relaxed the atmosphere at the hotel is and that one just feels at ease.
We had a beautiful wedding, the events room looked just wonderful and we really couldn't have hoped for a better day. We spent the night there and the room was pure indulgence. Down to the natural hand wash, everything was perfect.
And then there was the food. Where do I start....I could really write a book about the amazing food at the Green House. We knew we were in for a treat when we went for a tasting menu before the wedding and had some of the best food we had ever tasted. But the food at the wedding...well, it blew us away. For the sake of brevity and not to have this turn into a food review, I will only say that their chef Gordon Jones is a genius. The menu is imaginative and colourful, the food of outstanding quality and with incredible flavours. You can just feel the passion Gordon has for what he does.
This hotel really is a treat. Outstanding.
