Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
The best wedding – easy! Gavin, our Banqueting Operations Manager tells us: "I was a groomsman at one of my best friend’s weddings a few years ago. I was quite apprehensive about it being at my hotel and more importantly being looked after by my department without me there in charge but it was an incredible day. Everything was just perfect. I was so proud of the staff and what they achieved and the way that everything ran. Also experienced my first silent disco that night – brilliant."
