We booked the East Close for two nights for our wedding night. We went and had a look at their bridal suite which was gorgeous, the whole hotel has been refurbished to a high standard since the new management took over. We walked through the restaurant too which was beautifully refurbished.
One slight gripe- we made our booking in December but had a phone call this weekend to say they had to cancel out booking as they had not realised they had a wedding booked for that weekend. We are so disappointed as the room was very good value for money and we want somewhere special for our wedding night.
This hotel was taken over in Novemeber, previous to that the hotel had a poor reputation so this new management cannot afford to be making 'mistakes' with bookings. I declined the offer of rebooking for a different date as I hope I will not have to repeat my wedding day!
I cannot fault the hotel itself but I would recommend making sure their rooms are actually available to avoid disappointment.
