On the 22nd and 23rd March 2013 we had the pleasure of staying at the Pennine Manor Hotel. The occasion, our daughter’s wedding.
Most people will recall the weekend simply because we all experienced the most significant snowfall seen in the area in many years, with head height snow drifts and roads closures.
The perfect recipe for disaster – a whiteout wedding.
However this was far from the case. The snow did not ruin the event and it can even be said that the wedding was in fact blessed by the milk of human kindness – with support and kindness being as plentiful as the snow falling from the sky.
We have many people to thank including the Kirklees Registrar’s, the hair and makeup artists, the car hire company, wedding guests, tractor and gritting drivers and hotel guests all who rallied in support to ensure that the event was memorable for more than just the weather.
It seems wrong to identify one group or individual over and above others, but the efforts of the Manager (Mandy) and her dedicated staff cannot go unrecognised. Mandy clearly is a Manager with demonstrable leadership qualities and commands the respect of those around her. She heads up a team of staff who go over and above to ensure the business can deliver against customer expectation. Special mention should also go to Paul who not only worked with customers in several areas of the hotel, but was also seen digging out cars and gritting the drive on many occasions. Thank you to all the staff that made the gargantuan effort to get into work to support the day.
Weather aside, did the hotel live up to the expectations we placed on them as a wedding venue?
The food was fantastic and plentiful (compliments given to the restaurant staff), the rooms were clean, comfortable and welcoming. The staffs were very approachable, professional and clearly committed to making our stay as perfect as possible.
Many of the wedding guests, having experienced the superior quality of the service given, are now wanting to take advantage of the fantastic eat and sleep deals now available at the hotel.
Simply saying thank you seems so understated when one considers the effort given over to making our family wedding such a success. A triumph over adversity managed by a positive and dedicated Manager and her staff.
Really – a very BIG thank you from the Marsh and Newham families.
