A fantastic weekend. We couldn't have asked for more
From the moment we viewed KCC we knew it was to be our venue. The location is beautiful and exactly what we wanted in terms of size, style and the VIEW! Every single one of the staff were amazing and attentive without being in your face. Special praise to Danielle and Claudine who were fantastic all weekend. The food, the drinks, the rooms, all great and I really couldn't fault our special weekend.

Couldn’t wish for more
The venue is beautiful and with options where to get married and on-site accomm it’s such a great venue choice. The real star of the show though is the team - nothing was too much for them, they thought of every detail and couldn’t do enough for us - from going out to buy my bridesmaid a toothbrush when she’d forgotten hers, to setting our ceremony chairs up in the rain and seamlessly coping with various COVID cancellations they really put a shine on the day. Roxanne, Julie, Tony and Danielle are just brilliant!

Perfect wedding venue. Amazing staff!
Perfect wedding venue. Amazing staff! Couldn't have been better Me and my partner got engaged a year ago and got married in November. Having been to a wedding at KCC before, we loved it as a reception venue. From the very start Bobby was fantastic in answering all our many, many questions. After seeing lots of other venues it was clear that KCC was so much more flexible which really helped with our wedding planning process, from being able to set things up days before the wedding and not having to rush everything out straight after, to the freedom and ideas of food choices (all food was excellent by the way!). On the day itself, Bobby and all the staff at KCC were exceptional. We had a lot of guests staying at the venue and this process was made very easy. The rooms themselves were fantastic and many guests commented on how nice their stay was. Having an army of non English speaking Italian relatives staying, the staff were amazing ensuring everyone felt welcome and sorting out any issues that arose. My family told me how great the staff were and they were available and helpful throughout the weekend stay. We honestly cannot recommend KCC enough. The venue is amazing and the staff were exceptional. Thank you to everyone at KCC for making our special day run smoothly! There are a range of rooms to choose from which cater for individuals to families

We had such an incredible day and you and your team were absolutely amazing. Throughout both the planning and the day itself nothing was too much trouble, we really appreciate how kind and helpful you were, thank you so very much for helping to make our day so special.
