We had booked our wedding a while ago and were concerned that the hotel had gone into Receivership at the end of July 2014. Our concerns were unnecessary - the day was amazing.
Our ceremony and evening reception were at the hotel and the new Manager was the most helpful and organised chap and the staff couldn't do enough to help.
The main hall was dressed well for our ceremony and the Manager helped guide us through the proceedings. He actually helped us more than the Registrar.
We had photo's on the lawn and it was a fabulous backdrop for our photo's. We all walked to the Lake and had a boat trip around Rudyard Lake with a cheeky Prosecco and more photo's.
We did run over with time but the Manager helped round up our Guests for the Wedding Breakfast. The Hall was set up exactly how I requested and the food was lovely. We were served quickly and we had a choice of 3 deserts (some of my greedy guests had 3 puddings they were so nice!). If I have any criticism - there was enough food for double the amount of people.
We stayed in the Bridal suite which was a lovely room with a jacuzzi, big comfy bed and an amazing view to the lake. The main hotel and bar area is quite old school but has charm! M|ost of the bedrooms have been updated. All of our guests were happy with their rooms and they were reasonably priced.
The staff were polite and worked hard to please our guests. no-one had to wait and we were short of nothing.
Our day exceeded expectations and I'm sad that it went so quick but we will definitely go back for the amazing carvery.
