We had our wedding reception in Glasson in July this year after falling in love with the location which is truly breath taking. However it was not only the view that got people's attention that day- ( Glasson is not just a pretty place) everything from the food, staff, service and accommodation were fantastic. Our guests are still commenting on the food, we went for the silver package, and choose the old reliables beef and salmon. The meal from start to finish was fantastic, there was seconds for anyone that wanted more( an option often not offered at many wedding venues) and the service was prompt and efficient. The wine included in the package was free flowing and very nice.The quality of the food was very important for us and after our tasting we were concerned!! We voiced these concerns to the functions manager Robin who took them on board and assured us that on the day we would not need to worry. True to his word it was excellent and we couldn't have asked for more.
The staff were fantastic, no request is too big or small and the genuinely do their best to see them through. Gareth and Niall were extremely helpful and the serving staff in general very friendly and efficient. The staff on reception were fantastic in dealing with the reservations and waiting lists for accommodation for the night and always had a smile on their face and a friendly word.
The function room itself is bright, spacious with lillies as centre pieces decorating each table, chairs covered, everything is provided and done for you, and done extremely well with views from all angles on to the lake. The smoking area is a balcony looking out onto the golf course and lake..many smokers and non smokers alike went out here for a chat and fresh air through out the night..its one of the nicest smoking areas in the country!!
This venue is not cheap however all in all it offers very good value because the quality of what it offers and delivers more importantly, is outstanding. Is it worth it?? Without a doubt every penny, it's a fantastic venue, in a breath taking location that goes to every effort to ensure your Big day is a memorable one with delicious food, fantastic staff and unbeatable hospitality. Well done Glasson
