we had our wedding on sunday the 8th and i also stayed with my dad and my mates the night of the 7th.
all i can say from start to finish what a fantastic place for the wedding the staff were amazing and did everything and anything they could to help us in anyway possible, before and after the big event. the food ( and ask any of the 70 guests we had ) was amazing. the grounds of the hotel and building is amazing the staff keep it clean and are friendly towards all guests all the time.
the night before was a bit of a hassle as there was a christmas party for the national grid where there was alot of activities going on that you wouldnt expect from people in such high posistions in important jobs, which ment the next day i had to ask the hotel staff to just check the patio areas and sweep up the piles of broken glass that had accumulated and just been pushed aside by the guests and not reported, so the kids at our wedding could of fallen and hurt themselves badly, but as usual the oakwood staff had no issue with this. as soon as our wedding co ordinator saw the state of the outside area from the party the night before after a few moments there was a small team of staff clearing it up straight away.
the night before the wedding ( 7-12-13 ) we stayed in the hotel and had our dinner and a few drinks. Food was wonderful as per usual and served to the regular high standard that i have ALWAYS known at oakwood. it was difficult getting to the bar through the crowds at the party but we managed.
the only fault i had with the wedding day was nothing to do with the hotel but to do with some of the disgusting drunken & disorderly behaviour of a few of the guests the night before but hey Christmas parties with free drinks will cause problems.
i would also like to personally say thanks to all the staff, the manager paul, and our wedding team which consisted of sam sidwell, sam garrett. and the main man on the day who officiated his first wedding flying solo, jack. you all made our day worth every penny and the most fantastic experience ever.
so whether is wedding, one of the theme nights or just a nice night away this place really has it all and i have done all of the above here now even if it is only a 25 min drive away from my home.
