Made our day magical
We looked at so many venues and so many packages. All the venues either did not accommodate or would not move from set packages. Croft Hotel not only is absolutely stunning, the staff are amazing and they allowed us to create our own package with no ties to anything. From start to finish of our wedding journey they helped and supported us, gave us the best service and made our day magical.

Highly Recommended!
The service was absolutely outstanding!

Everything was planned to perfection. The venue was absolutely stunning, so clean and welcoming. Thank you David and Nathan.

Unfortunately the day of my wedding after the ceremony, I was involved in a car accident and the staff were amazing whilst I was in hospital. Kept all our guests happy and held off everything for us until my return a few hours later. I arrived at the venue jeans and vest. Cut my cake and danced my first dance with my new husband. Our guests were taken back by the sheer amount of thought and care towards us after such a traumatic event.

All the staff were phenomenal blew us out of the water. We can't thank them enough for their help, hospitality and customer service!

They deserve to win this award without a doubt!
