I recently had my wedding at the Bracken Court and I cannot speak highly enough of the staff and the hotel. The venue is amazing for a start. All of the rooms I went in to, be they suite or standard, were well appointed and luxurious and all guests commented on how nice they were.

The reception rooms on offer were both a great size and very user friendly from a guest’s perspective. There is plenty of space for guests to dance, mingle or stay seated at their tables. We were lucky enough to have a very sunny day for our reception so the staff set up the roof top terrace for us to use which was amazing. Following on from the wedding the residents bar is a lovely area to continue.

The food on offer is also second to none. We had a selection of canapés initially then a three course meal and there was barely a shred of food remaining afterwards. There are a large number of brilliant options offered by the hotel and the real difficulty comes from trying to narrow down your selection! The breakfast is also brilliant and other food ordered from the bar during ours and our guests' stay was again very good.

While the venue and food is very special, I have to make a special mention of the staff at the Bracken Court who without exception are the friendliest and most accommodating that I have come across. From the people on concierge, to the waiters and bar staff, every person we dealt with could not have done more to assist. The efforts of Helga and also Lenka were more than we could have asked for and only sought to increase our enjoyment of the day. They were always willing to offer suggestions on how we could make the day run smoother and we really found them to be invaluable.

If you are considering a wedding or even a weekend away I would highly recommend a stay at the Bracken Court Hotel not only to the fantastic venue but also the phenomenal staff.

Attended a Wedding here recently... friendly staffs. It is a nice hotel located right in the middle of town with underground parking available FOC. Dinner was excellent breakfask good. The rooms are nice we only stayed one night B&B, I suspect we had been given a smoking room... on booking nearly a year ago we were not informed... nor were we asked when we confirmed our booking some months ago I don't smoke neither do any of my family and as such never thought to ask what type of room(s) are availably... maybe you should be informed?...just a minor moan overall a plesant stay.

Room Tip: Ask for the room type/

We stayed here for a friends wedding - room was very large & spotlessly clean! Staff extremely friendly - we had booked online but they gave us the wedding rate when leaving - didn't have breakfast but the food at the wedding was lovely! Highly recommended!

Room Tip: We had a room facing out onto the road - was a little noisey so if you are a light sleeper ask for o...

This hotel is absolutely fabulous. Stayed here this weekend and the hotel is stunning. Food was out of this world (would highly recommend the soup :)

Staff are brilliant and accommodating beyond belief! Rooms were excellent.

Honestly couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough.

My husband and I will definitely be back again and again!!!

All i can say is how amazing the food was this time. We have been here a few times and the food has gotten so much better this is because the hotel has a new chef called Noel and he has the touch when it comes to the art of food. Hotel and resturant well worth a visit. Thank you so much to the staff for making our night fantastic

This is a nice hotel with excellent staff but I would cast a doubt on the 4*
I did not feel the food selection was up to 4* and the location did not come up to expectations.
First night ate in hotel "beef stirfry"......not much beef. Maybe we got it on a bad night as everything else was satisfactory.
