I stayed at the Holiday Inn for my daughters wedding reception ! When she told me she was having her reception at the Holiday Inn I was a bit surprised to say the least ,thinking this was just a hotel for travellers .
Well I could not have been more wrong .
I arrived on the Friday afternoon and had a nice welcome at the reception my room did not include breakfast so was offered a voucher which was cheaper than paying on my room , I was on the 1st floor overlooking the car park but that was not a problem as the room was very soundproofed.
The room was a good size with TV ,coffee& tea available plenty of hanging space ,small table and an easy chair ,I liked the idea of the pillows telling you which ones were hard / soft there was a nice bathroom with a bath mat to stop slipping .
The rest of the family arrived that day as well including my daughter will trolley loads of decorations for her wedding venue you would have thought she was moving in for a week ! The wedding planner was not there till the morning but the staff were getting the Room ready and setting out the tables by late evening it was looking quite magical with a back drop of fairy lights to the top table .
We ate in the village that night it is within walking distance from the hotel . I went down to breakfast on the Saturday to find it a bit noisy with lots of footballers who seemed to have demolished lots of the food but it was soon replenished by the chef ,the staff were nice and friendly
The wedding planner had started putting out my daughters decorations and she said to me my daughter wins the prize for the most decorations she has ever seen . Left with just instructions inside every box we all went off to get ready ,I must say the staff were very excited about the event as well .
The wedding was held at Sidcup registry office which is only 25 mins away on our return to the venue we were greeted by the staff with a glass of bubbly there was a bar set up and we had the use of the garden while we waited for my daughter to arrive back which was wonderful as the weather was amazing .
I must say the wedding planner had done an amazing job the room and tables looked wonderful !!
The food for the wedding breakfast was excellent nicely presented and the plates were hot for the main course and the staff were very attentive .i could see all the way through my daughter was relaxed with the whole event and obviously very confident with the wedding planner she is a credit to the hotel .
After the meal and speeches we were able to use the garden while the room was got ready for the evening reception and dancing again done with the minimum amount of fuss .
I want to thank the wedding planner and the staff for my making my daughters wedding a truly memorable occasion.
