What a great place to get married this hotel is, from the moment we arrived we were looked after so well, nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, the concierge Steven was amazing what a guy, Adam was in charge of the wedding itself again fantastic and all the staff were great a special mention to Richard on the bar upstairs really friendly guy. The hotel is gorgeous and the food for the wedding delicious as was the breakfast, massive thanks for everything

My husband and I got married here on 7th Feb and we truly had the most perfect day! We booked our wedding back in August ‘17 so had a long time to contemplate and think on how the day would be. I can honestly say that the team here overlooked literally nothing! As I’m sure all brides do, I was very eager to discuss the smallest of details but nothing was too much trouble for Eleanor in the lead up to the day. On the day, Carole and the rest of the team descreetly buzzed around the place making sure we ran on time and that everyone was happy. Your wedding day is something you will remember forever, and I’m very glad I can say we have been left with nothing but fond memories of our Great John Street wedding. Thank you once again to everyone at the hotel and we will definitely be back to visit very soon x

Massive thank you
Just want to say a massive thank you for all of your help on Sunday and in the run up to the day. We had the best time and loved every minute.
Can’t thank Adam enough for re-building the cake and sorting the music and all of the other things that flew his way! You were amazing, sorry I didn’t get chance to see you on Monday morning before we left.
Thank you all again for making the day run so smoothly, we are truly grateful

We had an absolutely amazing wedding day and a brilliant stay at the hotel all weekend. The place is beautiful. Wedding was the best day ever and we were very happy with everything on the day. The staff were excellent and we had a perfect day.
We will absolutely return to the hotel for both afternoon tea and to stay over. It’s actually really nice as when we do come again it will feel very special with us getting married there.
Thanks so much for all of your help Eleanor and thanks to all of the team at the hotel for helping to make our wedding day so fabulous.

Couldnt have been any better!
To Eleanor
We both had the most perfect day! We can't thank you enough for making everything such a breeze for us, we felt like we were in really safe hands from the very start right through to the end of this whole process and no request has been too big or too small for you and your team to accommodate.
Please also pass on our thanks in particular to Carole and Tamara who were both fantastic on the day and worked really hard to make everything run smoothly.
Thanks again to you and all the staff who were involved in our big day, it really couldn't have been any better.
