Overall a wonderful day was had by all who attended my eldest sons wedding. There were one or two minor hiccups such as a shortage of dressed chairs both in the ceremony room and for the wedding breakfast, this thankfully was solved by the two ushers in the absence of the wedding coordinator, who despite the blurb in the brochure did NOT attend on the day!! Brochure reads:--(Our experienced wedding co-ordinator will be with you every step of the way, offering exceptional dedication to ensure your desires are met.) The food was of excellent quality and served relatively quickly to the 70 guests there was however a lack of vegetables , we were told that we could ask for more but by the time they came the rest of the food would have been cold, Shame, they need to get this balance correct in the future. The rooms are a bit tired to say the least, and need a major spend on them to both update and improve the experience of staying here. The whole building looks as if it has been somewhat patched up to keep going rather than invested in as a profitable business over recent years. Given the location ,the truly magnificent grounds and the potential grandeur of the building a cash injection I feel could only bring rewards. One other major gripe my wife has is that at the end of the evening a significant amount of the wedding cake bottom tier (which she made herself) was taken away and binned. Not sure why or if they cut the whole 13" diameter cake but we were told that there was none left to send to the various elderly relatives or friends who could not attend the ceremony. We knew there was some left as we saw it taken away, but did not expect it to be thrown in the bin. We did telephone and we were told that it would be looked in to, and they would ring us back. Unfortunately they never have, hence this review. Still Granny didn't get her cake did she!!!
Only small negative things I guess, but we will remember them if our other son marries.
