Wedding Reviews

"Hello, I thought the staff were great, very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. I thought the way they acted throughout the day was excellent and very professional.  I also liked being able to sit down and discuss the details of the day a couple of times as well.   Helped me to know what actually happens on the day and made me feel more at ease.

I was also extremely happy with how they decorated the room, it looked stunning.  Everyone was very complimentary with the food.  I thought it worked very well with guest being able to go outside on the decking or sit in the bar if they wanted a break from the music and dancing.  The views were good I got some great wedding pictures. Please thank the people who put the wedding cake in the fridge completely forgot about it!!! And the people on reception who found our marriage certificate after Paul lost it.

Loved the fact that all the decoration and cards and pressies were locked away for us to pick up the next day.  It was a stress free day for both me and Paul and I would not have changed a thing.

I would definitely recommend it to anyone else as it was great value for money and excellent staff and surroundings.

Let me know if you want any pics of the room the photographer took a few. Thanks for all your help!"

"Hello Helen Hacking, This is a big thank you for all your help on making mine (Clare) and Ian's wedding day wonderful.

From the first day that we came in to meet you, you made me feel at ease and helped me relax while I knew that you were taking care of everything and letting me feel less stressed throughout the run up to my wedding.

You knew what to do and say that instilled confidence in the whole wedding breakfast, knowing that you were in charge I knew that when I was in the car coming from the church that you would have everything in order and taken care of.

You were so helpful throughout it all, you made our day go so smoothly with your help and care, that we have never forgotten. Also a big thank you to everybody else who help make our day so special. I would recommend anybody to have a wedding at your venue. so thank you once again Helen."

Preston has direct access to the M6 and M55 (Blackpool) motorways - providing speedy links to the M61 (Manchester) and M65 (East Lancashire).
