Nice location and venue. On arrival we were met at reception by a not so friendly receptionist. We paid extra for breakfast but she didn't log this on the computer! So the next morning they had no paperwork to say we'd paid. Luckily after turning the room upside down we found the receipt.
Room very nice and clean also. Like the tough with the pillows (choice of hard or soft) wedding was nice. Only grumble would be the bar. Every time we wanted a drink we had to wait up to 30 minutes to get served! Two bar staff isn't enough. Hence we did not get drunk at this wedding! There was another wedding going on in the building also so lot of people wanting to get served.
Was quite comical that both bride and groom were called James and Sarah, so my husband introduced himself to the wrong bride....the Sarah! Made us chuckle.
Would recommend and would stay again. Very pleasant stay, just possibly more bar staff and another bar!
Oh and the review below is right about the doors slamming shut at night, was annoying and woke me several times, slow shutting doors be better.....
