We had our wedding at Saracen’s on 30th September and we honestly cannot thank everyone at the venue enough. The day was exactly what we wanted from start to finish, the organisation, the food, the staff were all absolutely spot on. Debby, the wedding planner, was a rock, no matter how ridiculous my questions she dealt with them with grace. I don’t have the words to express how pleased we are with the day, there is nothing that we have looked back on and thought “oh we wish this didn’t happen” or “we should have done this” So thank you to everyone at Saracen’s for making our day so magical, we look forward to visiting again soon.

From the first day we visited this hotel to see if it was a good wedding venue our brilliant experience started. Andrew was very polite and showed us around the rooms where our wedding would be held he didn't rush us and left us in private to discuss the option of booking. We knew straight away that this was the place to be the history in the hotel all the old features and the brilliant staff made us decide. We booked and made a deposit for our date. Between then and the wedding we kept in regular contact with Andrew via e mail and telephone and he was always available for a chat face to face when we needed it. There wasn't even a problem with us having a bag pipe player playing in the hotel for 45mins. The big day arrived and everything was happening all the staff was brilliant making sure not only that we was ok but all our guests was as well. Andrew was there keeping me calm and making sure helen was ok even though the hotel was very busy. In the evening again all the staff was running around after us making sure everything was running smoothly so me and my new wife didn't have to worry about anything at all and we could spend all our time with our guests. All the guests have said how beautiful the venue was and the food. Everybody has also said how nothing was to much trouble for the staff and they would go out of their way to make anything possible and this is most definitely true. Even in the early hours of the next morning Robyn the receptionist went and made us a big cup of tea for us and was chatting about the big day it was truly brilliant. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anybody getting married. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our special day as less stressful as you could possibly make it. The new Mrs Carol & Helen Douglas-Medley.

We had our wedding ceremony, reception and evening so here on 4th November, booked a year previously. You cannot fault anything that this hotel does for you or provides, the impeccable service and communication before our event from Andrew and Robyn, down to the day itself where everything went like clockwork! The staff worked their socks off from breakfast through to 1.30am. We cannot thank them enough. AMAZING!!! Thank you again Andrew, Robyn, Debbie, Catherine, Michael for making our day so very very special. Xxx
