Amazing wedding!
Wow what can we say? Just returned from honeymoon & reflecting on our wedding day. Thank you to all of the Crown team for making our day so special, from helping set up the day before & taking all of that stress away, to welcoming our guests and going above and beyond on the day. The food & service was just perfect. Thank you - we will be returning!

Thank you.
I hope you are both well. First of all please accept my sincere apologies for not having contacted you sooner to say a big "Thank you" for all your hard work making Jess and Scotts wedding day such a wonderful day to remember. The Conservatory and function room looked amazing and the food was lovely. All members of staff that we came across during our stay were friendly and courteous and a credit to the hotel. All of our guests were very complimentary about the hotel and I understand that one of my business colleagues has already booked to come and stay again next month and know of others that when they visit next will be checking in.

Thank you
Thank you to the Crown team for looking after us so well at our good friends wedding in October. The hotel has a fabulous location, brilliant facilities (we especially loved the new fitness centre with pool sauna etc.) The wedding itself ran wonderfully by the management team & canape's & champagne in the gardens with live singer made it very special. We will be back to stay in the Greenlane rooms - love the decor.
