What people are saying!
Everything on the day was …
After our tasting we knew the meal was going to be incredible but it was so nice to hear all our guests raving about every aspect of the food and service!
The hotel itself is a magnificent setting and we got beautiful photos throughout the day and evening in various parts of the grounds.
I would highly recommend the Great Southern to any couple who are looking for a wedding venue, you are guaranteed a stress free day with every minor detail thought of and taken care of by the amazing wedding team.
Thank you all so much!

Our wedding day was spectacular, every member of staff in the hotel from the door men to the receptionists to the waiters, could not do enough for you. We even had the afternoon lady help us with a small mishap with my mother’s dress on the morning of the wedding. Our reception was magical, the layout of drinks, and canopies was superb. Our guests are still raving about the incredible food and kindness and generosity of the staff before, during and after the meal. The groom had forgotten his paper that had his speech and Denise had it printed off within minutes, super-efficient like always.
Anything we ever asked for was done without any hassle, it made us feel so much at ease. I couldn’t recommend this hotel highly enough for couples planning their wedding day. I would love to do it all over again, and I wouldn’t change one thing. Thank you so much for making our dreams come through!

Denise was incredibly patient, reassuring and positive throughout the uncertain times right up to a few weeks before the wedding.
We had the most incredible day and received nothing but praise from all of our guests about the hotel, the staff, the food, everything!
Thank you so much again for everything and for making our day so special. We would highly recommend to any couple looking for a wedding venue to consider the Great Southern.

Secondly, the other staff of the hotel were amazing from start to finish. The wait staff in the ballroom were brilliant and the service was expertly managed. The feedback we have received about the food has been excellent. Even the staff in the restaurant for breakfast were lovely, the person who greeted me Tuesday morning even told the person seating me that I was the bride from Sunday so I continued to feel very special.
The food, the service and the atmosphere of the hotel is what makes the Great Southern so special and head and shoulders above the competition.
