I celebrated my wedding at The Abbey hotel on 26.03.16 and it was the most amazing day. I booked this venue 18 months prior and Kay (wedding co-ordination) really helped in the choice, as soon as me and my now husband met Kay we could see she enjoys what she does and really puts the effort into helping you as much as she can. She was great in answering all of my many emails and questions.
A few of our guests stayed the night before including myself and I really had the best night sleep considering I was getting married the next day, the beds are so comfortable. My 2 bridesmaids stayed in the same room with me and we used the swimming pool and sauna which was really nice and relaxing.
We went for breakfast in the morning which was very nice and lots to choose from. I tried to be healthy and have fruit and yoghurt but the bacon and hash browns looked too nice to pass on and it didn't disappoint.
The ceremony room was dressed lovely and just how I imagined it, afterwards we went into the bar area which was very warm so was glad when we was taken to have some photos, unfortunately because of the rain we had to have photos inside but my photographer picked a great spot at the top of the stairs where there was sofas and a mirror that we could use and really got some great shots.
We chose to have the bbq buffet which had to be bought indoors because the weather was so bad but the food was great and everyone loved it.
The bridal suite was so nice, and it was lovely to have a nice card and silver photo frame from the team at The Abbey. The venue also gave us our own room for us and our guests to have breakfast together which we thought was a brilliant touch.
Everyone had a great day and commented on how nice the venue was and I can't thank Kay and the team enough for making our day go without a hitch.
Kay our wedding planner sorted EVERYTHING!! There was no stress at all which meant we had the most perfect day as we could properly enjoy it. The Manager on the day was Locky and he couldn't have been more helpful. He told us where to go, what to do and this meant that everything flowed perfectly. My dad had nothing to do with the planning but he went to see the Hotel Manager a few days later to say what an amazing day they had put on and how every single member of staff from waiters to bar staff to managers went over and above to make the day special. Can't fault one thing - simply perfect.
The abbey hotel are just amazing and myself and my husband love this place, we got married hear & held our whole day & evening hear. The staff are very friendly & helpful & can't do enough for u. We rate the hotel 5 star! We return as much as we can.
Performing to this level does not just happen. The Abbey is a well oiled machine and somebody obviously knows how to get repeat business. Just brilliant and not just my comments but the whole of our party. Well done.
Excellent - would highly recommend this venue. Staff, accommodation and wedding organisation could not be faulted. Guests thought the location and service were all excellent and were most satisfied with their stay.
Just have to say what a fantastic hotel the Abbey is for holding a wedding. We had a number of family members travel to stay for 3 nights and the accommodation was excellent, catering for couples and families alike, bedrooms all excellent. The staff were very helpful, use of the health club included so that gave guests that something extra. We had dinner on the Saturday evening in Bramblings Restaurant, absolutely lovely. The food was delicious and a very nice bottle of wine went with it....a couple of bottles I should say! The wedding day on Sunday could not have been better. Everything we had asked for was done in terms of the organisation of the big day by Kay our co-ordinator, to the excellent food which was arranged by chef JJ based on what my daughter in law had asked for, to the decoration of the room and running of the day by Locky. They all deserve massive credit for their hard work and patience but provided us with the memorable day we had hoped for and most certainly got. Our guests complimented us on the day regarding everything that had been done for us and we have also received many calls and messages of thanks and compliments to be passed onto the hotel. So both my husband and I would just like to say, THANK YOU to all who worked so hard in all parts of the hotel to give our son and new daughter in law a day they will remember.
