Having looked at several locations for our wedding we selected East Lodge. We fell in love with the venue immediately and the initial staff we had contact with were also very good. Throughout the whole planning process East Lodge staff were great. I made many (probably too many!) phone calls, visited on lots of occasions and was always made to feel important.
I decided to stay the night prior to my wedding with my parents. I stayed in the Haddon room and it was excellent. Although a little cold when I first entered the extra radiator already provided in the room soon made it very cosy. My parents were equally impressed with their room.
From the second I came down to breakfast (which was superb)on the morning of my wedding I was made to feel very much the centre of attention. The staff were excellent at calming my nerves and showing people to my room e.g. hairdresser, bridesmaid and photographer.
After the ceremony all of our guests commented on the fantastic venue. One guest told us that our reception drink of mulled wine was "the best ever!" The food was some of the best I have ever tasted and our guests could not tell us enough how much they enjoyed it.
The whole day was relaxed and brilliantly organised and at no point did we feel like "just another wedding". The staff really could not do enough to make it our special day. Although we had limited the amount of children present at no point were they made to feel unwelcome.
We had the gold package which meant that the hotel really did feel like ours for the whole wedding. All of our friends and family commented on the quality and comfort of the rooms. Our wedding flowers had been placed on the breakfast tables in the morning which was a lovely idea.
The morning after our wedding all our presents, flowers, disposable camaras, music CD, cake etc were neatly collected together making it so easy for us.
Overall we can't speak highly enough of East Lodge. We thank them very much for making our wedding perfect!
