I attended a friends wedding here and loved the day. The facilities were amazing and everything was well placed for the complete wedding package. Staff were brilliant, every one of them were very happy and keen to achieve the best in service. No less should be offered and they were all up to the task and they helped make the event an event, not just a special day. They tirelessly gave their all and it was very much appreciated by all the guests that I spoke to.
The only real let down was the cost of the drinks, £7.50 for a Jack Daniels and Coke. This was the only bad part of a great day. I don't mind paying a little over the odds for a beautiful venue with the environment and amazing staff, what I do object to is the over pricing of drinks due to the greed of the owners. Never have I been charged this for a Jd and coke and look at this £9 for a glass of wine. I was almost sick at paying this for a drink at a friends wedding, it is abhorrent.
The hotel and the staff are amazing with all other aspects of the entire day faultless. But the cost of the drinks totally detracted from the day and it was the thing that we some about the next day and not the wonderful day that we should have been talking about.
A wedding should be all about the day and everything associated with the bride, groom and the marriage, not the anger of the guests at the prices at the bar, unfortunately this will be my memory of my friends special day, bittered by the exorbitant pricing, which it didn't have to be.
