Salt/Pringle – 17th June 2016

Hi Andrew and Wendy,
Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how perfectly amazing our wedding day was.
The venue, the service, the staff, everything about Stanley House was just perfect. I would like to acknowledge Megan who was particularly attentive and did a wonderful job keeping us in check on the day, not sure how we would have got along without her.
You really should feel very proud of the experience you and your team provide – it is second to none. I knew that already but have never really experienced it first-hand.
It was a real pleasure to deal with you all from start to finish.
Look forward to dealing with you again soon.

Singleton & Waldren – 7th November 2015

Hi Joy.
I just wanted to tell you that my wife, Jan and I were amazed at the quality and precision of the arrangements at our daughters wedding on Saturday. It was flawless in every way; but most importantly was a lovely relaxed and enjoyable event.
We can’t thank you, your team and the many others involved enough. You have a first-class service in lovely surroundings and I can’t think of a single thing I would change to try to make it better. Even the weather, which wasn’t great, had no effect.
It was a lovely, lovely day.
Thank you.
Russ & Jan Singleton

Brewer & Oliver – 12th June 2015

Hi
Please can you pass this onto the management team?
I just wanted to say how much my wife and I enjoyed our time at Stanley House for the Oliver Brewer wedding.
While we found all the staff very helpful and professional, I would like to reserve a special thank you for Ben. As Bestman, I had planned to use an untested audio and visual setup to deliver my speech. The help and assistance that Ben gave me was invaluable and helped calm any nerves I may have had. He even taught me a new trick to use in powerpoint that will help me at work!!
Before I forget, I also must give special thanks to Emma Davidson who had to put up with about 1000 inane questions from me prior to the day. She always handled these in a friendly manner and gave me the answers I needed.
So well done to you all at Stanley House for a great stay from start to finish.
Keep up the good work.
Martin Train

Gallacher & Whiteside Wedding – 13th February 2015

Please accept our sincere thanks for a beautiful day on Colette & Sean’s wedding/ The day went by without a hith and we have had many comments that this was the best wedding people have attended. Approximately 8 months ago, Colette rang yourselves in a panic as we no longer had a venue. Victoria, relatively new to Stanley House, answered the call and immediately put Colette at ease and assured her all would be well. She has continued to be most helpful and a special thanks should go to her. As a family, we then arrived the next day to be met by Beth and what a star she has been. An excellent member of your team and another special thanks for her. Joy and Megan have also added to the organisation via calls and in person. Thank you.
Finally, just to reiterate again, the day was beautiful, thank you again.
Lynn & Brian Gallacher

I’m sorry it’s taken so long to get back to you however myself and Karen would like to say a Massive thank you to all the staff who helped with and waited on at our Wedding on the 10th of August.
Ben was absolutely fabulous and nothing was too much trouble for him; not only that, he as the same surname as me!!
We have had so many of the guest’s commenting on how lovely the food was and saying they had had a great day “one of the best” was a phrase used commonly.
We have just had the proofs back from our photographer and there are some stunning pictures of both my lovely bride and your equally lovely hotel. Once we have put it together we will call and show you I have attached a few as a taster.
Once again I would like “you” to let everyone know, that you and the staff at Stanley House made our day one to remember even in the midst of Hurricane Bertha.


Coar & Walker Wedding – 9th August 2014

Dear Joy,
Just a line to say a huge thank you to you for all your hard work and dedication into making Lizzie & Steven’s day so very special. Right from day one you have been patient, organised, creative, and above all, very caring towards catering for their needs. We could not have asked for anyone or anything better. Everyone at Stanley House has played their part – but it all started with you being on the ball and making sure they got that Saturday in August! Well done! It almost feels like I am writing your first school report – but as I remember that was excellent as well – and so wonderful to have had that connection with you!
We cannot thank you enough Joy – it has all been magical! – You are destined for big things – keep it up! (report!!)
Lots of Love,
Stephen & Susan

Tetlow & McCrory Wedding – 3rd August 2014

Hi Emma,
We’ve just got back from honeymoon so would like to say a massive thank you to you and everyone at Stanley House who was involved in organising our wedding.
The amount of help and advice you gave us in the planning stage was fantastic and really helped us (as, quite frankly, we didn’t have a clue!) Your friendly advice and regular contact really helped and we felt as if nothing was too much trouble for you. Your advice on seating plans and ‘organising’ certain guests was both hilarious and helpful!
The actual day could not have been more perfect. The attention to detail and the smooth, well-practiced service by all the staff was clear to see and a lot of our guests, both day and evening commented on that.
The food was perfect (again, lots of compliments from guests!) and every member of staff involved including waiters and bar staff, was polite, helpful and very good at their job – please pass on our thanks to all your team as they made the day.
We will send proper thank you cards when they are printed but in the mean time, a heartfelt thank you to you and everyone at Stanley House who looked after us so well.
Many thanks
Kim and Steven

Dear everyone at Stanley House,
We just wanted to send a huge thank you to everyone at Stanley House who helped make our wedding on 31/07/14 so amazing.
From our first visit in February last year, to all our dealings with Joy and Emma planning and organising, to the day itself, assisted by Ben and Megan’s team, we knew we’d picked at winner. All our guests were so impressed by the food, drink, the way the room looked, and the overall service.
But of course our star is the wonderful Megan. She was so helpful and attentive throughout the day and just seemed to understand what we needed. An asset to your team who we can’t thank enough.
We just wish we could do it all again (well, maybe not the planning!)

Turner & Beatty Wedding – 14th June 2014

Dear Joy
On behalf of my husband Chris, my daughter Lisa and husband Adam and of course myself; I wanted to express our sincere gratitude for the amazing day we had on 14th June.
We could not have had a more perfect day; the weather was amazing and thanks to Lewis and his team everything ran smoothly with no hiccups whatsoever just total professionalism on all accounts.
Everyone who attended during the day and in the evening couldn’t praise the staff enough. They were polite, friendly and very efficient. They worked very hard and it is truly appreciated by us all.
The wedding breakfast meal was cooked just how Lisa had asked for it to be cooked and the buffet in the evening was equally as good, in fact, one particular guest wanted to ‘marry’ the steak and ale pie after three helpings.
I also want to thank yourself for your perfect planning of the day and not forgetting keeping the butterfly release secret from Lisa, she absolutely loved it and throughout the whole day we kept spotting butterflies happily soaking up the sunshine and beautiful surroundings of Stanley House.
So, once again, a huge thank you to you, Luis and the team for helping make Lisa & Adam’s wedding day perfect in every way.
Best wishes
Michaela Turner,
Mother of the Bride.

Dagger & Mumberson Wedding – 4th April 2014

Dear Joy, Emma, Ben & all the teams at Stanley House
Steve and I would like to send you all a massive thank you for making our day the best day of our lives. Right from day one when we attended an Open Day we were blown away with Stanley House for our wedding venue. You have always been there at the end of the phone with a very friendly, but always professional manner which was so comforting to know and always made me feel that I was the only bride you were dealing with. You have been so accommodating with all my wishes to making our day that extra special with our little touches, so am extremely grateful for everything. Ben’s attention to detail was outstanding and is such a perfectionist, (just like me) so again had no doubts in my mind that the day would run so smoothly; which it did, in fact even better than my already high expectations from you all! You were, are all amazing!

All our family and friends said they had an amazing time and said the day ran so smoothly and enjoyed the high quality of food and loved staying in the Woodland and Manor House rooms.

We look forward to seeing you all again soon when we revisit Mr Fred’s.

All our love and massive thanks once again.

Nock and Bell – 9th August 2013

Thank you very much to all of the staff at Stanley House for the most perfect day we could have hoped for. The hotel was one to rival any Wedding Venue.
The rooms were dressed to a very high standard, the staff were fantastic, the organisation was flawless, and Sarah and I were made to feel very special.
Our guests travelled from Spain, Holland, Scotland, as well as many local area’s, and all commented on what a fantastic day they had.
We would like to thank Joy & Emma, for helping us plan our wedding, advising us every step of the way, making us feel very assured that our day was going to be one to remember.
Every detail was taken care of, even the little things that the Bride and Groom could have easily forgotten to organise.
On the Wedding Day, our Operations Manager Ben, was in complete control of everything, making sure that Sarah and I were taken care of, and ensuring that the service from all of his staff was
to the standard expected of this First Class Wedding Venue. Thank you Ben, the day couldn’t have gone any better.
The Gardens were in outstanding condition, giving us the opportunity to take some wonderful photographs.
On the Saturday after the Wedding, both Sarah and I were sad to be leaving Stanley House, and wished we could rewind to Friday, so we could do it all again.
Stanley House will come with our highest recommendations to any future Bride & Groom.
Best Wishes and thank you all.
Keith & Sarah Bell


Regan & Brown – 15th June 2013

Michael & I want to give you & the team at Stanley House a huge Thank You for such an amazing wedding. We thoroughly enjoyed our day & could not have wished for anymore.

Leading up to the wedding Emma you were so helpful & could not do enough for us so we would like to Thank You for that. Michael’s parents Neil & Jan & also my parents wanted to Thank You & the team for doing such a great job. They were all so impressed with how everything went & thought you did a tremendous job.

Mrs Belinda Thurston – 18th July 2006

18th July 2006 was an absolute scorcher, with record temperatures on the day of our wedding. Stanley House set the scene for our gloriously intimate day, with mediterranean weather only adding to the magic of it all. We were cared for by the exceptional Luis, who looked after our every need, seamlessly guiding us from one aspect of the event to the next, ensuring both our wedding breakfast and evening reception took place effortlessly. We were made to feel very special by all staff at the hotel. We are thrilled to have been there at the beginning, when Stanley House was starting out on its journey and we have wonderful memories of our day. Thank you.


Mrs Wilson – 1st June 2013

To all the staff who were on duty for Melanie & Jacks wedding, can I say thank you so much, you were all fantastic and I can honesty say that I could not fault it. I would recommend Stanley House for a wedding venue, it was superb-fantastic-brilliant – every guest commented on the attention to detail, and friendly faces from the staff – especially first thing on Sunday morning! The service and attention at the wedding breakfast was second to none.
Thank you sincerely for making Melanie and Jacks wedding a day to remember
Yours faithfully
S.E Wilson (Mother of the Bride)


Mr & Mrs Clayton – 6th April 2013

To all our friends at Stanley House!
Wanted to write a short note to say thank you so much for everything you all did to make our Wedding Day the best day of our lives. Every single member of staff helped us in every way not only on the day itself but in the 18 months leading up to the 6th April 2013.
We will carry on coming to see you all in the future years to come & we hold such precious memories of the best day ever!
With all out love & thanks
Beth & Neil Clayton


J Slater – 27th May 2013

A gem of a hotel
Attended a wedding reception yesterday and stopped the night. The food was very good, the service excellent, the facilities and atmosphere were what you would expect of a 4/5 star establishment. We then checked into our room and what a room it was. It was vast with a four poster, canopied bed and delightfully furnished. We were in the old part of the hotel, an old manor house and you really felt like the lord of the manor.
Other guests were in the new part of the hotel and were equally impressed with the quality of their accommodation. The hotel is situated in a dominant position in vast grounds with splendid views over the Lancashire countryside.
Breakfast the following morning was just as impressive as everything else.


Robinson & Kelsall – 4th May 2013

A very big Thank You to all the staff at Stanley House for making this day perfect.


Carrol & Clayton – 6th April 2013

Emma, Luis, Philip, Ben and many more lovely staff members at Stanley House – we want you to know how very grateful Bill and I are for your tremendous efforts to make Beth and Neils special day far more than just ‘special’! We put 100% trust in you and you truly did surpass expectations! We all had a wonderful stay and couldn’t help but notice that every member of staff we had the pleasure to encounter, went out of their way to be as helpful as possible. Bill and I send our most grateful thanks to you all!
With fond memories and kind regards

Stirrup & Morgan -31st December 2012

Hi Joy,
Still got the jitter bugs! Thought it very necessary to drop you a quick email to let you know how perfect everything was, really, amazing! Please pass on our thanks to Ben he was fantastic, very professional, real, and very accommodating.
Many of my guests have commented on how the food was the best they have had at a wedding which means an awful lot to me being in the trade, they would’ve noted it! Joy and Ben indivudally are very approachable, professional and certainly excel in what the hospitaly industry lacks these days. You have made it very easy for me to relax and most of all trust you to execute my plans and dream which is not a task to be taken lightly in any brides eyes.
Please pass on our sincere thanks to all of the team there at Stanley House, we are so, so happy and very aware it has taken everyone across housekeeping, operations and sales to make it everything we could’ve hoped for. We are very proud of all the details of the day and both us and all of our guests will definatly be singing your praises for many years to come.
Sincere thanks,
Jen & John

Dear Stanley House,
We would just like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you for our wonderful wedding day. Our guests all had a brilliant day and have commented on how amazing the day was and how delicious the food was. We felt very well looked after throughout our entire experience… from Joy and Emma helping to plan the wedding, to Ben and the team on the day ensuring the day ran smoothly with a relaxed atmosphere. This continued the following morning through breakfast and to checkout. Stanley House really is a beautiful setting for the perfect wedding day.
We would highly recommend you to anyone for an extra special day!
Thank you again!
Louise & Tim Pigott


Hunt & Vasiliou – 9th September 2012

Hi Joy,
I just wanted to put on record what a marvellous day we all enjoyed at Stanley House for Kerry and Dak’s wedding. You well exceeded our wildest expectations and made this a wedding to live long in the memory. All our guests commented on how wonderful the food, service and venue were and there wasn’t a single piece of negative feedback.
Your organisation of the event was superb and all the staff played their part to make it so special. My wife is now a Stanley House ambassador and never tires of recommending you to everyone she speaks to.
Very, very well done. You certainly did us proud.
Kind Regards
Dave
(A very happy ‘father of the bride’.)


Coutts & Haworth – 25th August 2012

Hi Emma & Joy,
We just wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you for your help, support and patience throughout the planning of our wedding. We had an amazing day on 25 August 2012 (despite the weather!) and the team who were on hand throughout the day were exceptional. We have received a number of comments about both the food and the service from our guests, which were both excellent.
It all just passed too quickly! We’d happily do it all again…!
Thank you to you both and can you also please pass on our thanks to Louis and the team who helped us out on the day and were most attentive to our needs and those of our guests.
Thanks again. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Stanley House Hotel to our friends and family for any future occasions!
We hope to visit the new spa, perhaps early in the New Year, so will no doubt see you then.
Kindest regards
Mr & Mrs Haworth

Moss & McDonald – 3rd June 2012

We just wanted to thank you for helping to make our daughter Joanne’s Wedding to Brett so perfect. From the very first time we visited Stanley House in August 2010 we were blown away, not only with the beautiful buildings and surroundings but the kindness, warmth and attention to detail shown to us by each and every member of staff. Since booking the Wedding we have been regular visitors to Mr Fred’s and have attended every Wedding Fair. Joy was our Wedding planner and she has been brilliant the whole way through, nothing was too much trouble for her. The week before the Wedding the final meeting was with Ben, he to was brilliant and when we left the meeting with him we were completely filled with confidence that the day would be perfect, and it was. Ben and the whole team were fabulous on the day, and the gentleman on reception overnight was just so kind and helpful. Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts.
Ellen and Steven Moss

To all the staff at Stanley House
Thank you ever so much for making our wedding day so special and one to remember forever. All the staff involved were so professional and ensured everything ran smoothly from the day we booked right through until leaving the morning after. We cannot thank you enough the venue looked gorgeous as always and cannot wait to return for many meals.
Love
Joanne and Brett McDonald


Bibby & Williams – 6th May 2012

After planning our wedding for 18 months with a number of stumbling blocks in the way over that time i can honestly say Stanley House and its staff delivered to the highest quality, making our wedding reception a truly memorable and wonderful experience for everyone that came and celebrated with us.
Both in the run up and on the day, nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, from those working in Mr Freds to the General Manager, and we were always greeted by extremely friendly individuals on every occasion. Unfortunately my grandad fell ill during the reception and the staff at Stanley House were unbelievable in managing the situation, i cannot thank them enough for all they did during the evening reception, especially Ben (ops team) – he was an absolute star.
We became regular visitors to Stanley House on the run up to our wedding and the can honestly say that the food served across the hotel is beautiful. The surroundings are perfect and the rooms are some of the most stunning i have seen in any hotel we have visited.
You absolutely get what you pay for; and what you get at Stanley House is class, sophistication a beautiful ambiance. It was well worth us blowing our budget and even with hindsight i would do exactly the same again…
We will without doubt continue to be regular visitors to Stanley House and look forward to staying in their new development over the coming year.
Mr & Mrs Williams


Whiteside & Kerwin – 2nd July 2011

My husband and I booked Stanley House for our wedding reception some two and a half years before the day. I am extremely organised but after looking at many other venues, I felt Stanley House could not be beaten so was eager to book up. I am someone who has very high expectations, a perfectionist, and Stanley House and the team did not fail to impress.
Emma and Joy, event and wedding planners, were fantastic. Emma was our main contact and she did everything in her power to make sure our day was incredible, every wish was catered for.
David Jones, was our events manager who helped with the running of the day. He was brilliant. Professional, considerate and went beyound our expectations to ensure our day ran as smoothly as possible, Also not to forget to mention Louis, who was a delight.
The food and drink was amazing from the canapes and cocktails for the welcome, the wedding breakfast to the evening buffet. Our guests, like ourselves were very impressed.
The rooms were fantastic. Our families occupied most of the rooms and had a pleasant stay. Myself and my husband enjoyed the room so much we stayed an extra night. My only grip would be that breakfast time should be extended particularly at the weekends.
We would also like to mention the beautiful flowers arranged by Linda Hardman at the Flower shop in Clitheroe, a contact of Stanley House. Minerva ensamble played wonderful music for our welcolm and breakfast. Our band, Frisco and Broadband provided us and our guests with brilliant music for the evening reception, everyone commented how fantastic they were. I enjoyed the night dancing on the fabulous starlit floor we hired via Janet at Starlit flooring.
Our day was perfect, our dreams came true and we could not have wished for a better venue


Hodson & McDonnell – 1st July 2011

To Emma, David & Crew
Thank you so so much for assisting me so brilliantly throughout the whole preparation for our special day.
You did an absolutely amazing job in making our day so perfect, it couldn’t have been any better.
Stanley House is a gorgeous venue and will be well recommended. The comments we had about our wedding were amazing and a lot were down to you wonderful people. We had the most fantastic time with many lovely memories to treasure.
So a big big thank you to you all,
Love from the new Mr & Mrs McDonnell (Shelley & Paul) x


Holland & Graham – 16th July 2011

Hi Emma,
Cara and I would just like to express our sincere thanks for everything that you and all the Staff at Stanley House did before and during our wedding to make it the best day of our lives.
Absolutely everyone who came said it was the best wedding they had been to and had an amazing time thanks in no small part to the hard work done by you and your colleagues. The venue couldn’t have worked better and was thoroughly enjoyed by all, the food was great, the accommodation was great and even the weather was on our side, not sure how you arranged for those few hours of sun but thanks!!
I have to point out how wonderful it was dealing with you throughout the planning stages and right to the big day, it was invaluable to have such a great contact to be able to answer all our silly questions as soon as they popped into our heads.
Many Thanks and hope to be back soon,
Jordan and Cara Graham


Liverseed & Pearson – 22nd July 2011

This is a thank you to all the staff at Stanley House, Mellor.
We have just celebrated our wedding 22nd July 2011 and just wish to put in writing how delighted we were with how the day and preparations leading up to the big event were conducted.
We had a dedicated person, Joy who was our main point of contact, however, if she was ever unavailable there was always Emma or other staff who knew who we were and could look at every detail on file.
The day before our wedding we were introduced to David Jones who then went through in great detail all the specific requirements and timetable of the day and who would be doing what in what order and answering all our many questions.
Notes were taken and we left having every confidence that the day would run smoothly.
We were not disappointed! We can honestly say we had a fabulous day, everything went to plan and we have received nothing but compliments on the venue, staff and above all, the food. We had fillet steak which was divine. The children were also very happy with their menu choices.
Our room was beautiful and breakfast delicious.
We even added a live band at last minute and again everything was taken care of with minimum input from ourselves.
Every detail was 100%
A great decision to choose Stanley House as our wedding venue.
Claire & Stuart Pearson


Cochrane & Simpson – 9th July 2011

Latham & Hurst – 8th Janaury 2011

Everything was amazing, from the fairy lights above the red carpet at reception to the fabulously decorated room where we had the wedding breakfast. the food was superb. Thank you for agreeing to do the fish and chips, which were stunningly good – but so was the soup and the sticky toffee pudding!

Emma,
Finally we have managed to get back to normal life following our wedding on the 14th September this year. Michelle and I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you and all the staff for your help in making our wedding day so special.
The food, the service and the treatment from the moment we arrived to when we departed was first class and Mr Louis Garcia was fundamental in ensuring the wedding breakfast ran like clockwork and was in control of the situation throughout, without being pushy or aggressive.
Since our wedding I have already recommended Stanley House to two people who are getting married, and I believe one of them have now actually booked, so they may benefit from the same great experience that we did.
Once again, thank you to you all for your help on the day, the memories will last our lifetime.
