We got married here on the weekend of the 5th April and had an absolutely superb time.
Staff were extremely helpful all weekend and in particular John, Ben, Lindsay, Steve the porter (who never comlained despite having to move all our stuff about 6 times) and Nils. The rooms were lovely although i would recommend taking one of the new rooms and the Spa bedroom in particular looked great.
Our wedding breakfast and ceremony were dealt with very professionally and everything ran very smoothly.
My only slight complaints would be that they claim to be very child friendly but were unable to organise a babysitter for one of our guests (who was saying at the hotel) despite 36 hours notice and there wasn't a great deal for the kids to do and the housekeeping staff were a bit overeager for us to move out of our room at the appointed 11am on the morning after our wedding despite a new room not being ready for us so we were stuck in the lobby for 3 or 4 hours when we would have been much happier spending a bit more time in bed.
All in all and other than these minor points it was a great weekend which will live in our memory for ever!!!
