We had an amazing time at this hotel for our wedding on the 21st of Feb this year. We had a small family wedding of 25 people and it was great that they could cater for small groups as well.

needed to be reassured of anything, they were there. It was mainly Lee we dealt with and she was both professional and lovely to chat with. The big day came and she had everything down to a T. Everything went exceptionally well, we had our ceremony here overlooking the cliffs and sea, the views were just amazing as we got a really sunny day. As for the reception the meal was so good and more than enough for a body to eat, and the function room was beautiful with beautiful white chaircovers and tablecloths and gold ribbon on the chairs, just decorated lovely. We had our photos taken around various places around the beautiful grounds of this hotel and they turned out fab... we then danced the night away with our guests... and also had an evening buffet... and of course our cake... then sat back and just took it all in... when we headed off to our suite I was so taken aback it was beautiful and everything you could want in it saperate bed area with tv on opposite wall(not that I was even thinking of a tv on my wedding night).. then a lovely sofa around the wooden partition with a beautiful glass table and another tv opposite... also a fireplace which made it look warm and cosy... it was lovely you would have to see it to appreciate it... next morning we had a champagne breakfast with our remaining guests to finish off the experience... it was amazing from start to finish... if I were to do it again I wouldn't change a thing...xx thanks Lee and Karen for making our big day so special and amazing for us...xx
