We held our wedding here on October 5th. We had 6 rooms booked the night before and the whole hotel the night of the wedding. Everything was great, the staff warm, friendly and professional. We all ate at the hotel the night before and were not expecting much more than a bar menu. We were very pleasantly surprised not only by the choice but the quality. We spent a pleasant evening in the bar, watching the staff prepare for the next day. The rooms are all spacious and exceptionally clean, with big comfy beds. Breakfast the next day was lovely.
The wedding itself was fantastic, its great to have the whole place to yourselves. All our guests were complimentary about the food, the wine and their rooms. The whole day appeared to run effortlessly thanks to Sarah, who was always on hand to help and give a reassuring smile as nerves kicked in before walking in to the ceremony. The venue looked lovely, they prepared everything exactly as we had discussed. The bar staff were great, the ladies serving breakfast were lovely.
My only recommendation is for more mirrors in the large room. This is a great room for the bride to get ready as it is large with a kitchenette, but only one mirror tucked away in a dark corner! This though is truly minor as I cannot recommend the Roundthorn highly enough. A wonderful venue with staff worth their weight in gold.
