My niece's evening wedding was held here and it went off without a hitch. There were 100 attendees and everything, from the outdoor ceremony to the brunch the following morning was perfect. The dinner was exceptional, the service top-notch and very friendly. The Towpath room (where we mingled after the ceremony and had brunch the next morning) was set up beautifully and was very comfortable even though the evening was very humid. The public bar, where some people continued onto after the reception was over, was comfortable and classy. I agree with the other reviews about the rooms needing a bit of attention to fix some minor issues that aren't expensive to do. The small attention to some details would make a big difference in my overall impression. We chose a room with a four posted bed and it was very elegant. Some of the other furniture is a bit big for the size of the room, but it was still comfortable. Although I didn't get a chance to get to the pool, some other family members did and they really enjoyed it. The pool area and water were clean. It was set back near the woods so the surroundings with the other landscape made it look very relaxing and refreshing. We enjoyed our visit and would definitely plan another visit when in the area.
