We got married at the Craiglands on 27th July 2012 and had the most fantastic day. I was worried having read some of the reviews, but I cannot stress enough how fantastic the day was. Jessica and the team were fantastic, they organised everything on the day, even setting up all the favours and table plan etc that I had prepared
We had some fairly snooty guests (they know who they are!) but even they were impressed! The food was amazing, and everyone ate quickly. We had 80 guests. A pair of our guests did complain about their room, but they mere moved promptly and were very happy with their new room.
In the run up to the wedding I was constantly contacting Jessica to ask ridiculous questions and generally be a pest, but she was always very prompt to reply and extremely helpful and accommodating.
If I had to say anything negative, and im being very picky, it would be about the 'little touches'... I chose to make my own menus and seating plan, as the ones on offer were not very special for a wedding... but other than that there was nothing to improve on! Excellent value for money.
If you've booked your wedding here, I recommend ignoring the bad reviews (I can't personally understand them) and look forward to what will certainly be a beautiful day!
