We had our wedding and reception here this past weekend and everything was perfect. Our guests were seated on the lawn with the ceremony in the gazebo and it was ideal. We had our cocktails in the "rotunda" of the Inn with dinner in the Library and the reception on the Veranda overlooking the water and it was exactly what we wanted. Only problem was the weather - where is spring. A large number of our guests were from out of town, all stayed here and some were in town for as long as 6 days. All the rooms were great (make sure you get the river view). We had a few small problems but the staff was quick to solve all of them. Everyone enjoyed the restaurant and lounge on numerous occasions. The wait staff never got flustered, even when our small table of 4 would suddenly become a group of 20. The entire staff was wonderful - professional when needed and fun when appropriate. Tasha and Jan in sales are easy to talk to even when we became demanding as to room locations. Vernice (Catering Manager) was absolutely the best! She listened to what we wanted, made some great suggestions, and did not panic when we refused to give on the weather location. Marie (Banquet Manager) and her staff were also fantastic. She stuck with our planner late the night before the wedding making changes as our guest list evolved (last minute changes thanks to the military). Service during dinner was fast and efficient but never in the way. Even though there was another reception in the hotel the same day, the attention we got from the staff and management (even managers off work came by to check on us) made us think we were the only guests in the hotel. The hotel shuttle makes it easy for guests that fly in to get around. They will even transport you around town between airport runs! Hotel is in a great location. You can walk to almost everything that New Bern has to offer. We definately will be back and recommend that anyone coming to New Bern stay here.
