My daughter booked her wedding here only eight weeks prior to the date (Sunday 02 May). I was rather anxious when I read some of the hotel reviews but they were completely unfounded. The wedding itself was lovely - the Registrar could not have been better - the ceremony was quite moving. The whole day was marvellous - the staff went out of their way to ensure that everything was spot-on. Thanks especially to Nicki (the Wedding Organiser) and Aaron who ensured that all went well. The wedding breakfast could not have been better - it was delicious - (they chose the three course buffet with cold starter, four hot meat/fish dishes with accompanying vegetables and a selection of wonderful desserts (followed by coffee and mints)) - and that was the opinion of the fifty people who sat down to eat.
We stayed for two nights - the bedrooms were faultless and we enjoyed using the spa facilities. The rooms were quiet with everything you would need. Breakfast was varied and delicious and the hot food was hot! No complaints from any one of us. One guest, who has booked her wedding venue elsewhere, said she was thinking of changing to the Holiday Inn as she was so impressed.
Two small criticisms: the bar was quite expensive (probably the difference in price in the South of England compared to the midlands); the jaccuzi was not working whilst we we there. Neither of these made any difference to our overall enjoyment - I'm just being totally honest in my review.
Overall everyone had a wonderful time - the bride and groom had the best day ever - and the staff at the Holiday Inn could not be faulted!
