“bad service experience”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

We booked our wedding reception with Arcadian Retreat. At first they were great anticipating our needs and providing an excellent response at short notice. We were really looking forward to the garden reception but suddenly had the rug pulled from under our feet when they literally dumped us and told us they'd taken bookings from other guests. We felt misled and floored by the last minute turn about face. They refused to discuss the issue. Highly unprofessional, especially given the occasion.

They did not pay a deposit when requested. We discovered they booked and paid a deposit for another local venue. We therefore put the rooms back on the market. They have never set foot on this property.
