I just wanted to say a huge thank for our special day on the 1st December 2002.
The day itself was perfect and exactly how we had hoped, which we believe was in no small part down to you. We chose Hard Days Night Hotel for our wedding due to the venue absolutely blowing us away. Like most venues, they are only as good as the team working in them, so there is always a concern you've made the right choice and it will match your expectation. From the moment we had our first meeting, all of that uncertainty disappeared. We knew we'd made the right decision.
Your planning and organisation of the day, took away so much of what should have been stressful and a worry. We knew exactly what was happening throughout out the day and everything followed the plan.
We spoke to a number of our guests about booking rooms, all of them had booked using the code without any problem, I went through the process myself for a couple of guests and the staff were warm and friendly. They received emails confirming the bookings and to checking in which sped up the process on arrival. I was in Reception when others arrived and despite it being busy, the staff remained pleasant and dealt with customers and queries with patience and professionalism, checking guests in without them being rushed. Each guest appeared to be the most important.
The rooms that we went in were spotlessly clean and unbelievably large. All facilities were of a high standard. Again, this was commented on by a number of our guests.
We used a couple of suppliers that aren't part of the hotel's portfolio of suppliers, but that didn't faze anyone, everything was delivered and was where it needed to be and when it needed to be.
After the ceremony we moved into Harry's Bar, the drinks reception was in place for the guests arrival, with Canapés soon following. Again, this happened without fuss. The staff even kept a plate of Canapés for us as they knew we were away getting photos, which was a nice touch, which was gratefully received.
The bar staff were really good, throughout the evening. The first guy looking after the bar was excellent, he was attentive and friendly throughout the evening and kept the drinks flowing. The girls who followed him had a tough act to follow, but didn't disappoint, please pass on my thanks to them for nearly getting some of the jokes my comedy genius guest bombarded them with. There confusion was far funnier than the jokes. There was a lot of bewilderment that they didn't know what Pernod was!!
The choice and quality of the food was fantastic, and again was commented on by the guests.
I would also mention the DJ, he seemed to get the feel of the room very quickly, with the only time the dance floor was not full was when it was cleared for our first dance.
Even as we were leaving Eric, the concierge couldn't do enough for the guests leaving. He chatted and entertained some of our more "dishevelled" guests and made sure we all left with a smile.
I hope you now have a feel for how much we enjoyed our wedding at Hard Days Night Hotel.
