We are so glad we picked this venue
The staff are what makes this hotel a success. Paula and Wallace, wedding co-ordinators, are both amazing at their jobs. They listened to what we wanted from the start, they never tried to force anything we did not want. Our wedding day was exactly what we wanted, a relaxed family affair. All of our guests commented on the same things - the wedding meal was beautiful and also all staff, from Wallace to our waiters and the bar staff were fantastic and friendly, attentive to our needs.
