We had our wedding here in February, and I can only sing the praises of the staff, and venue
We had our wedding here in February, and I can only sing the praises of the staff, and venue. The professionalism of Luca, Liz, Stuart and their teams was faultless. The food - outstanding! As a strict vegetarian, the chef was thoughtful in suggesting a number of different dishes to cater to my needs. Luca, oversaw the whole day for us. Always in the background, ensuring that everything ran smoothly - which it did.Apparently, organising a wedding is one of the most stressful things you go through in life?? Thanks to Luca and his team, it was actually a pleasure and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole process, from start to finish.Our guests raved about the location of the hotel, arriving the day before the wedding gave them a morning to stroll around the cobbled streets. Other reviews have mentioned the limited parking - there is lots of parking around Kelso, all within a couple of minutes of the hotel; so for our 70 guests this was not seen as an issue.For anyone with special dietary requirements just wanting to go for dinner, just let the staff know your diet, and the chef will happily accommodate you.I cannot say enough to praise this hotel - the staff, the service, their professionalism, the food
