Well where to start, the beginning is usually a good place.
We went to the Staincliffe as a possible place to get married, our big day. After a discussion with the wedding co-ordinator Rachel we decided this was the place to have our day. Friendly, helpful, experienced and bendover backwards accomodating to both of our quite demanding needs.
We went back time after time after time in the months leading up to our wedding with changes and alterations to our arrangements and nothing was ever a problem, Angela the Manageress could not have been more helpful, by the time of the the wedding she was close to being added to the guest list.
The day itself. . . . .
The bride and the groom want everything to be perfect on the day and it was, well nearly, this isn't a perfect review but very nearly.
My only criticism of the day would be that twenty minutes before the service the room was still being set up and as the groom and there before my bride i panicked a little(lot). But in the Staincliffes defence it was ready on time, i just think it should be ready for ALL guests arriving.
The food was incredible and all our guests commented on how good it was, great quality and a full belly, not a thing left over as is often the case at weddings, HOG ROAST!!
We were given the 'honeymoon suite' free of charge and what a great way to end our fantastic day, lovely comfortable room looking out to sea and very clean, what more do you want.
Next day. . . .
We woke early to open our cards, opened the curtains sat on the couch in our room looking out to sea, perfect.
Went down to breakfast and were greeted by incredibly attentive staff, they all congratulated us on our lovely wedding and made us feel so special, wasn't in the brochure or necessary but a fantastic thing to wake up to. We had friends who stayed over for the night and when they came down for breakfast they too were treat like royalty, brilliant.
The afters. . ..
We were taken back by our friends on the way back from our honeymoon for a quick drink, when we walked in all the staff welcomed us and asked 'how our honeymoon had been' and what a great day our wedding was, VIP treatment again.
In summary. . . ..
GET MARRIED IN THE STAINCLIFFE, IT'S THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE AND THEY DO EVERYTHING TO MAKE IT!!
