Despite our plans being constantly hampered by covid restrictions, we always had the reassurance from Catherine and the Lakeside Hotel team that we were in safe hands. Catherine was great from the first day we met her. She was organised and professional throughout and we knew instantly this was

where we were going to get married. The day couldn’t have went more perfectly. The layout, decor and service were all better than we imagined. Thank you to Catherine and her team for making our special day as best it could be!

I have to say we are delighted that we had our wedding reception at The Lakeside Hotel. From the very first phone call we had with Catherine, the events coordinator at the hotel, she put us such at ease. She is very gifted at her job, and we can't thank her enough. All of the staff at the hotel are

so friendly. The day was so memorable, from the stunning views from the hotel. The attention to detail that Catherine and her team give to your wedding day is of such high standard, we can't thank them enough. The food was outstanding, honestly we can't recommend The Lakeside Hotel highly enough for couples planning their wedding.

The Lakeside Hotel was a fantastic venue to hold both our wedding ceremony and reception in. Catherine was so easy to work with, and very thorough in her job. The food was amazing, staff were friendly and efficient, and hotel was spotless. We had the best day and now have the best memories. We are

wedding on Thu, 1st of July, 2021
The Lakeside Hotel, and Catherine Lewis, were simply outstanding for us. We delayed the wedding once, due to covid, and while this was stressful we never once had to ring or email Catherine, as she kept us up to date. As soon as they knew the new regulation they informed us. We had a lovely day,

from the time we arrived and were greeted by the staff to the end of he night.
The food was amazing. Not one person in our wedding had a bad word to say about the food. One person even ordered what he wanted for his kids, because he said they wouldn't eat it. He was wrong and they cleaned their plates. The venue is right on the water, and the ballroom is away from the rest of the hotel, making life easier for us. It was beautifully arranged to what we wanted. The staff were simply lovely. They couldn't do enough for us. They are a credit to the hotel in their professionalism.
The next day then there was no panic with us hanging around for a while. We had a quick meeting with Catherine where she asked how we got on, if we enjoyed it, and if there was anything they could have done better. Even when the wedding was over, she still took time to touch base with us and it meant a lot.
I would recommend this hotel for any event. The venue, staff and food are all simply excellent. They truly made it the best day of our lives.

We cannot say enough positive things about this fantastic wedding venue. We had a good number of setbacks, from planning to finally having our wedding day in August, but the staff were amazing throughout. They gave us so much advice, and kept us sane in what was a difficult time for them too.

the beautiful food, fabulous location, the attention to detail in laying out our decor, and a staff that literally could not do enough for us, the whole day was seamless. We had the absolute best day of our lives.
Catherine, the wedding coordinator, and Thomas, the banqueting manager, had prepared everything to perfection. They were always one step ahead, so by the time I thought of something, it was already sorted or in progress.
Every guest we spoke to the day after commented positively on the venue. Whether it was the attentiveness and friendliness of the staff, the lovely rooms, relaxed atmosphere, our gorgeous outdoor ceremony location, or the fabulous food. It could not be faulted. We are so delighted we chose The Lakeside Hotel, and highly recommend it. It is the perfect venue for your special day.
