We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the hotel - months later people are still saying how amazing the venue was. Near perfect. Staff were excellent, couldn't do enough for us. The rooms are all individually brilliant, including the accessible room. Worth every penny. Can't recommend highly enough

Such a fantastic hotel! I held my marketing seminar at the Hotel and everything was exactly how I had asked. Their staff were very attentive to detail and nothing was too much trouble. Moreover my guests thought the venue was excellent too! I will definitely hold my future events there. Thank you to all the staff!
