Perfect wedding
Hi Ladies, I just want to say a big massive thank you for your help with arranging and planning our Wedding, the whole day went absolutely perfect and we wouldn’t change anything. As this pandemic is still going on, we were so worried with how it will turn out and what the guests would think. You all kept reassuring me that everything would be fine and honestly you ladies made our Wedding perfect(we wouldn’t of been able to do it without you!), as we’ve been looking back on it these last couple of days we keep saying how happy we are to of had our special day at your beautiful venue. Even without the pick n mix, buffet and DJ all our guests still had such an amazing night and have been commenting that it’s been one of the best weddings they have been to! Again thank you ladies so so much, you’re all amazing at your jobs and we will definitely return for a stay in your gorgeous hotel. Take care L&W

A Hidden Gem
We celebrated our Wedding at The Inn on the Lake, having the Swan Package. From the initial planning, to our wedding eve dinner with close family and friends and our actual wedding day, everything was perfect. We worked as a team, the planners listened to what we wanted in our celebrations and they went beyond our expectations. The room where myself & 4 bridesmaids got ready was modern and spacious with a wonderful view of the lake, the reception hall looked amazing, the food was delicious and it was lovely to have the flower/plant laden outside space and lake backdrop for those guests who prefer not to party hard and also our fabulous firework display. You can’t hear the motorway as some people may think. A big thank you to Laura and her staff for making our special day a memorable one. The Inn on the Lake is truly is a hidden gem!

Our Easter Magic
We got married on Easter weekend 2019 and it was the best of our lives! From the moment we met Eszter, we knew we'd found the perfect venue. Everything was so easy, without trouble and fuss and the day was everything and more. We just wish we could repeat the day every year!

Best wedding experience!
This was the most incredible wedding I have ever been to. The ceremony itself was intimate and romantic overlooking the stunning lake, yet could hold a large number of guests. We didn’t have to travel anywhere, so it flowed from the ceremony into a reception meal, which tasted fantastic. Then there was a huge party afterwards, which included fireworks at the end - perfect. Staff couldn’t do enough for us and our room overlooked the lakes, which was lovely to wake up to and have a coffee. Cannot recommend this venue enough!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

A wedding back in 2019 was like being at a 90s dance festival! We had Ultra 90s (band) creating an insane rave with glowsticks, glitter face painting, a spectacular lightshow and a packed dancefloor. Outside was a BBQ, an ice cream cab and a caravan photo booth. The fireworks later that night were incredible.
