Wedding testimonials

Making sure our couples and guests have a truly great day is our top priority. There's no stopping our team pulling out all the stops. Here is a selection of unprompted feedback from our guests.

30th June 2017

We had our wedding reception at Stanley House last Friday. From the very first moment when we had a tour around the hotel, to all of the planning and the day itself the service has been absolutely amazing. Bethany is fabulous at her job, not only did she do a full tour of Stanley House with myself and my now husband, but she repeated the full tour again a few days later when we took my Mum to visit.
My Mum has visited almost all local wedding venues in her job but had never been to Stanley House, and she was totally amazed by it.
Bethany also has been amazing at responding to all emails and happily found answers to any questions we may have had.
As the wedding got closer we were handed over to Megan and again, she is brill at her job. She kept everything on the wedding day running so smoothly and helped me feel like a princess on the day. Nerves had got the better of me a bit and I was feeling a little bit sick during the meal but I felt comfortable speaking to her – the staff are all not only professional but really approachable too and almost feel like one of your friends on the day. She also knows how to best have all of your suppliers set the room up in the day and evening and I would recommend any Brides and Grooms to go with her advice.
Finally in the evening David was working on our night reception. Again – so so good at his job!! Everything continued to run smoothly and he was totally on the ball with keeping everything as it should be for us.
Stanley House is just perfect – we stayed in bridal suite 7 which is immaculate, and all of our guests who stayed over were equally thrilled with their rooms. Every part of the hotel and gardens is just as beautiful as the bedrooms.
In terms of food and drink, everything throughout the wedding day and also breakfast the next day were fabulous, and once again the waiting on staff couldn’t do enough for you. I would like to also mention the bar and reception staff who were faultless.
Finally, we visited the spa a couple of times last week and I would like to thank Charlotte for my Kundalini back massage last Monday. I am a beauty therapist myself and that was the best treatment I have ever had, plus what a lovely friendly therapist!
Sorry for the very long review but I didn’t want to miss anything out! Thanks again Stanley House – we can’t wait to return for future special occasions!! Lots of love Jill and Ryan xx

Dear Andy,
We had the most wonderful day on Saturday and we can’t thank yourself and the team at Stanley House enough for a truly unforgettable experience.
Everything was just perfect and even the sun came out when we arrived-phew! But I had so many guests commenting on the beautiful rooms and how helpful and accommodating all of the staff were. Please wish Patryk a special thank you from us too, he was absolutely brilliant during the whole day and it made it even more special.
Also thank you for organising it with us and being so friendly and accommodating throughout.
We couldn’t have wished for a more perfect and stunning day at Stanley House. We will definitely be coming back and we’ll hopefully see you again.
Laney and Steve
