Outstanding Funeral Reception –

I just had to send you a message to say wow, thank you, amazing and so much more for making my Father’s wake so good. We have been to a few events as guests at your place before, so kind-of-knew it would be good, but it was so much better. The food, service, ambience, just everything was 5* and we now are the family that arranged the best wake ever; our guests have told us so. Some have said that it was like being at a wedding in spite of the circumstances. Please pass on my regards to everyone that served us so very well and give them a ‘well done’ from us.

Amazing Wake Venue –

Having recently held my mother’s wake here, all I can say is how amazing this venue was, the staff were really friendly and polite, and nothing was too much trouble. The buffet was excellent, suppling sandwiches and hot and cold savoury snacks, tea coffee etc. the hotel was spotlessly clean and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
