“Wedding Reception 15th June 2013”
Reviewed 19 June 2013

Our son was married on the 15th June 2013. The wedding reception was held at Westlakes Hotel. What can we say other than the day was perfect. Debra and Geoff were the most helpful and caring of hosts. We had a slight hickup with one of the little ones not being well on the day which was nothing to do with Westlakes. Debra took the little one home with a Grandparent in their own car. We cannot say how grateful we were as it was quite some distance.
The food, drinks, rooms and service, were excellent throughout our time there and nothing was any problem. Everything to do with the reception was of the highest standard.
We would like to thank Debra, Geoff and all of their staff for helping to make it a very special day.

Just been to my sisters wedding here and it was absolutely exceptional. The hotel staff provided excellent service all day and right through to the following morning. The rooms were done out beautifully and priced at a great rate. All the rooms had great views of the country side. I was a tad hung over to experience the breakfast but my partner said it was lovely. Thanks for a great day and will definitely be coming.

We have just returned from Westlakes hotel having had our daughter's wedding reception there. Deborah and Geoff and their hard working staff could not have done more to make it a perfect day. All through the planning and on the day itself, nothing was too much trouble and the attention to detail was fantastic. Everything was so professionally done that we could not expect to find a better venue anywhere. Many thanks to all, you, your venue and staff made it a perfect day for our daughter an her husband.

During the wedding dinner the children in our party were practising spinning plates (plastic ones) on sticks. I noticed that Debra had a go - she wasn't very good at it. I did not think that this fault though deserved knocking the 5 star rating from the hotel. There was nothing else to fault.

From the welcome on arrival, the friendly chat in the bar, the clean comfortable rooms, the hot well cooked breakfast, the wedding reception itself to the cheery cheerio when we left you could only describe it as first class.

In fact as one who does attend quite a number of wedding receptions I have to say that the food and service (spinning plates aside) was the best I have ever experienced. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, everything was done with a smile and a professional manner.

This is one venue I would have no problem recommending to everyone.

I would like to totally agree with Liz.
The weekend was fantastic, the hosts,Geoff and Debra and all of their staff could not do enough for us and their attention to detail could not be faulted.
Although the weather was not the best, once back at the hotel for the reception we did not notice at all as the facilities at Westlakes were comfortable and relaxing.
As for the food, it was excellent. Everything was perfectly cooked. No-one I spoke to was disappointed with either the meal that they had at the wedding (fresh perfectly cooked vegetables, fish & meat and tasty desserts) or for those of us that stayed there, the breakfast. We were also welcomed with tea and coffee in the lounge where they made sure we had everything we needed.
I am not sure how long Geoff and Debra have been holding wedding functions but they have certainly perfected the service that they offer for weddings, hotel stays and quality food.
It was all excellent - well done to them and their staff!!

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights for a wedding that had it's reception here. From a hotel guest point of you I cannot praise it enough. From the moment we arrived and had help with our luggage (without requesting it, we were just noticed arriving!) to the minute we left with a super fast checkout, the staff were friendly and efficient, the management smiling and attentive to detail. The breakfasts were first class, lovely fresh fruit, good choice of cooked items all delicious. The room was well equipped, clean and the bed very comfortable. Great bathroom too.
As for the wedding well all I can say is that, if you live in this area and you are looking for a function venue then use Westlakes. Everything I have already said above but multiplied by 65 guests, a complete bridal party and not great weather. The whole reception was wonderful and the hosts missed NOTHING! Food was superb.. I could go on but you probably have the idea now! Great great hotel

On this occasion (Thursday 14th march) we went for a meal with friends and we weren't disappointed. Good choice of starters, main meals and deserts. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and our waitress for the night was lovely she couldn't of done any more for us. Starters were very good, main courses were fab and there was plenty of food for everyone, deserts were also very good. Very good value for excellent food :-) will definitely be going back very soon. Locals get yourselves in.
