We held our wedding in The Crutherland in September this year but did not write a review until we'd ensured that all our guests had enjoyed their stay. We had 20 assorted sized rooms and I'm happy to say that no-one came back with an adverse comment on any of them.
From the first day we contacted the Crutherland Wedding Consultant, Aileen, we received first class service from every one of the Crutherland staff. Accomodation, meals, bar service, reception, it all proved that our choice of returning to the Crutherland, I'd had my retirement dinner for 60 there a year ago, was well founded.
There was another wedding on the same day as ours, but you'd never have known it - no mixing of guests, no loud noise from the adjacent function suite, no lack of service, just two of our guests starting off at the wrong wedding reception enjoying a glass of champagne before realising they didn't recognise the bride !!
Yes drinks are a bit expensive but no more so than what you'd expect from a quality hotel of this nature with the ambience and service on offer. There are plenty of lounge areas capable of handling a full hotel.
Only drawback of holding a wedding, or any function in The Kittoch Suite, is that if there is another function being held in the main banqueting suite, then there's no access to The Kittoch from within the hotel. You have to go out the main door, along a pathway to the side of the hotel and back in again to the function suites. We were lucky - the weather was kind to us but I'd hate to have to do this if it was raining and you were dressed for a wedding. Apparently too, the hotel won an award for its design.. Doesn't say much for the judges when they obviously never considered how you are supposed to get to the function suites in inclement weather. Hopefully the MacDonald management team will address this issue.
Despite this, our wedding day was a great success helped in no small way by the management of Herve Bernier and his wonderful team at the Crutherland.
We can highly recommend it if you're planning a wedding or any other function there.
