Recently had our 25th wedding anniversary at Hotel St Pierre and it all went very smoothly thanks to the help and professionalism of the lovely Melanie, the wedding and event coordinator!
We have received feedback from most of our guest, and this is an honest and fair review.
We had to do very little in terms of preparation for the party, this was all dealt with by Melanie which took a lot of stress out of the whole thing. We had a lot of guest and the recently refurbished Monet suite was very nice and more than adequate to hold all our guest.
There was a few buffet menu's to choose from, and going by the feedback from our guest, was very good, nicely served in a separate room off the Monet suite which is a good idea.
If I was going to make any negative comment at all, it would be that there wasn't enough bar staff on through the whole evening, resulting in long waits at the bar for drinks. This is also the feedback from the majority of our guest. The bar Manager is very nice, however when asked to serve due to the long wait, he refused and left the bar, leaving only member of staff. Some guest had no other option but to buy bottles of wine to avoid waiting. I had asked for extra bar staff before the event, so if the hotel Manager should read this I would suggest that when catering for such a big event with over 100 people, then to increase the manpower on the bar.
Also, just one other minor thing, the key fobs are far too big! One of our guests removed it from the key for the evening as it was too big for his pocket, when he tried to get drinks on his room later in the evening he was refused by the young man on the bar who said he didn't believe he was a staying guest, which was a bit embarrassing, but all resolved in the end!
Breakfast was good, served by a lovely pleasant lady. All our presents were put into a locked room overnight, so we didnt have to worry about them.
All in all a great night, and a great venue, all our guest thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the whole evening was a great success!!
