we attended a wedding here on Saturday 10th May 2014. Many guests stayed in the hotel although personally we didnt, They were all extrememly happy with their rooms.
Thoroughly reccommend this hotel for weddings, the staff are polite, caring and friendly. The food was gorgeous and Hot (even with serving 90 at once). Good atmosphere.
If your into Old buildings this is definately worth a visit, Beams and features everywhere you look.
The only niggle we had was at just after 11pm the waiting staff were clearing tables of decorations, fair enough on the empty tables but not when they were still in use! Made me feel as though i was keeping them from getting home when we had until 12 midnight to party.
Best wedding we have attended in a hotel. Congratulations Mr & Mrs Marsh
