“Our Wedding day was perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2010

My husband and I found Linden Hall after looking at only 2 other places and immeditaely decided it was to be the place for us to tie the knot.
I cannot fault a thing!

The hotel is set in a tiny village and out in the sticks slightly but still very accessible from the A1 for people travelling from all over the country. The winding lane with its overhanging trees creates the fairytale from the moment you turn into the hotel grounds and the oldy worldy style and design of the building only builds on a the good impression.

All of our wedding preparation needs were taken care of by Angela who really did look after everything, down to all my little requests. She made it easy trying to plan things and living so far from the hotel she was a god send and made it very stress free.

On the day everything ran like clockwork. The bridal suite was very spacious and overlooked the hotel grounds. The staff worked until extremely late the night before the wedding setting up the room for our wedding breakfast and it looked gorgeous. I was led through it on my way to the Adamson suite and it brought tears to my eyes how spectacular and romantic it looked.

Glen was our Master of Ceremony and made me extremely relaxed in times of nerves and stress and was very professional and dependable on the day and he seemed in control at all times. The evening before, although clearly rushed off his feet with the million and on other jobs he seemed to have, Glan was more than helpful at helping us with the last final details in the ceremony room and arrangements for our big day.

My thanks and compliments extend as well to the kitchen staff particularly Chris who was the Head Chef. The food was impeccable and despite previous problems encountered with the menu tasting Chris went out of his way to call me and iron out any complaints about the menu and presentation. On the day we had so many guests compliment the food, it really was 5*. We had alot of guests but all the food came out hot and cooked perfectly. Great job!

We could not have chosen a more wonderful place to get married. We were able to create the fabulous, romantic wedding we'd pictured to spoil ourselves and our guests due to the wonderful setting and staff. The value for money cannot be compared to any other places we had brochures for either.

My only gripe was that I noticed one of the table cloths was dirty the night before but again a quick word with Glen and this was promptly dealt with.

The morning of the wedding angela appeared at my door with a glass of champagne to calm the nerves and appeared again to say good luck just before entering the ceremony room. I thought this was extremely thoughtful as most of our contact had been only through phone and email. The morning after the wedding we received a bottle of champagne from the hotel and the breakfast was delicious. It was the personal touches from the hotel staff which meant so much.

The swimming pool and jacuzzi were lovely however the steam room could definately do with an upgrade to stay in line with the rest of the hotel standard.
The grounds of the hotel are well kept and provided the perfect backdrop for our photos which we are still waiting for. My husband sampled the golf course to steady his nerves the afternoon before the wedding and was thoroughly impressed with it.

We honestly could not thank all involved at Linden Hall enough for making our Wedding day the most perfect occasion not only for us but all our guests who did nothing but compliment everything. I would recommend this hotel to anyone getting married no matter how big your wedding party as truly was wonderful!

Our wedding at Linden Hall was booked for Saturday 22nd May 2010. The preperations were made so easy by the excellent staff especially Angela the wedding planner.Nothing was any trouble to her and she dealt with any of our queries promptly. We attended a menu tasting session a couple of weeks prior to the wedding. We expected this to be a formallity with our choice from the set menu however Chris the head chef came to our table and was so keen to make the meal extra special. He even offered to make us a his and hers split cheesecake with the flavour of our choice!
A small group arrived on the Friday starting with a round of golf, followed by an excellent meal in the Linden Tree bar and finished off with a game of snooker. On the wedding day we were blessed with fantastic weather. Glen the master of ceremonies took control and again nothing was any trouble and he made everyone feel relaxed. The rooms were set up perfectly and the grounds where the photographs were taken were superb. Many of the guests commented on the standard of the food including comments such as "the best wedding food that they have ever had" The special cheesecake was lovely!. The evening reception was held in the magnificent Bigge Suite, it was well set up and a good night was had by all. The following morning the staff were so kind asking how the day had gone. The service was first class which again was commented on by our guests. A special mention to William who was so helpfull and polite and we were greatful for the complementary bottle of champagne he gave us as we were leaving. In summary from start to finish Linden Hall has been excellent and helped make it a memorable weekend and we could not have asked for anymore.
Once again a massive thank you to Angela, Chris,Glen and all the staff at Linden Hall for giving us the perfect wedding day.

Me and my wife got married at Linden Hall in February 2010. We only dcided to get married in November 2009 so time was tight.

The whole experience with Linden Hall in particular Angela (Wedding planner) was five star. Angela helped us map the day out and gave us contacts to sort various parts out. The package (check these out) that was offered to us was far better than we could ever imagine and made the day very special. Nothing was to much. Other places we talked to were totally inflexible on certain requests, Linden Hall basically fitted the day to what we wanted, which is very rare.

All our guests were treated like royalty and the rooms, in particular the wedding suite, were fantastic. Coupled with snow on our wedding day this venue is unbelievable and very cosy.

David (Concierge) and the staff were amazing on the day and kept me right and made sure everyone knew what was happening and kept everyone happy. The evening party was in an amazing room and the staff moved all the flowers etc from the breakfast room to the evening room, and it looked perfect.

If you are thinking of having a wedding, i honestly think this place can not be beat and the way it is organised and run you would have an amazing day.

The facilities, such as the pool etc, are amazing as well which makes for a very relaxing stay and wind down.

Thank you to Linden Hall.

We were married at Linden Hall on 15 May and had the best day of our lives. During the run up to the day Angela, the wedding co-ordinator was very supportive and efficient, keeping us informed at all times. On the day, Glen, the master of ceremonies, was fantastic - he made sure that all ran smoothly and most importantly helped me to maintain my composure before I went down the aisle!

The food was absolutely fantastic - the best I have ever had at a wedding, and this was also commented on by our guests. The rooms were lovely - large with fantastic views over the front lawn and golf course.

I would recommend Linden to anyone looking for a wedding venue. They have weddings all the time (which explains why they are so good at them) but we truly felt very special all day.

Went to Linden Hall for golfing weekend. We found this hotel to be top class. Very professional staff at reception. Great room very nicely furnished with good size twin beds.
Had enjoyable rounds of golf. There is a small hotel pub/bar where food is also served. The staff here were excellent, nothing too much trouble. All the food is locally sourced and although not an A la Carte menu (not sure if Restaurant in Hotel does this) it isof exceptional quality. Highly recommend all aspects of Hotel.

We chose Linden Hall as our wedding venue and what a wonderful decision it was! It was the most perfect day – everything we’d imagined it would be and so much more. The staff were courteous, efficient and very friendly. The master of ceremonies was absolutely fantastic in ensuring the day went so smoothly from start to finish, yet was so discrete and professional in the process. The duty manager went out of his way to ensure all our guests were well looked after and provided a first class service. Chris the head chef went beyond the call of duty to serve up the most delicious canapés followed by a superb 5-course meal. It was truly wonderful cuisine and our guests are still talking about it. Lastly, special thanks to Angela the wedding planner, who made us feel so relaxed and excited about our special day knowing it was in her organised and capable hands. She was a dream to work with – friendly, very experienced, professional and calming.

With outstanding grounds, top-class facilities and amazing service it really was the perfect wedding day – nothing was too much.

Linden Hall and its fantastic staff met all our expectations and we’d like to extend our thanks for such a memorable and special day that we will remember and talk about forever!

Just a one night stay here en-route to Scotland. A pleasant, comfortable room in the old house. Well decorated and eqipped. Excellent breakfast selection. Good, friendly service throughout. We ate in the pub style restaurant , which was fine. Good standard of pub style food in pleasant surroundings.

The location in a typical country house estate is very good. £90 for B&B was good value. I've not stayed in a Macdonald hotel before, I will check them out next time with a view to another stay.

A bonus was a pre-breakfast game of golf before breakfast in glorious sunshine. £6 for 9 holes and £7.50 for a buggy. Good value in my book.
