Wonderful wedding day
Once again thank you for all your help with arranging my sister’s wedding at the weekend, everything went far better/smoother than expected. The Events Manager was constantly on hand to help with any request and we did seem to have a few ! but nothing was too much trouble. We were all very thankful for his help and he proved to be a wonderful example of what good customer service and not just a nice setting can bring to an occasion.

Our Special day
I cannot even put into words how amazing our special day was here at the Mercure. My husband and I couldn't have asked for the day to go any better than it did. Our food was brilliant and the staff were lovely, we were looked after well from beginning to end. All of our guests enjoyed their time as much as we did and for that we both thank you all very much.

Returned for our 5th wedding anniversary after getting married at the hotel
Returned for our 5th wedding anniversary after getting married at the hotel. This time with two toddlers in tow. The gardens are still just as beautiful and the meal was very good and we were very well looked after by the overworked waitress.
