"We would like to thank you and staff for our wonderful wedding in the Shearwater Hotel. From the first meeting with you until the day, a year later, you went above and beyond our expectations, you left no stone unturned in making our day exactly what we dreamed of. Our guests couldn't speak highly

enough of every aspect of the day, from ceremony to the reception to food.

As for the aesthetics of the hotel on the day, we were blown away. It really topped off the whole day for us and we can do nothing but whole heartedly thank you and the staff for making a day we will never forget.

Gary & Emma"

Chloe and the Shearwater Team, Noel and I just want to thank you for everything you have done for us on the lead up to our wedding day and on the day itself.

From the moment we walked into The Shearwater to view it as a possible venue for our wedding reception, we knew it was "our hotel". The

decor, the welcome from Chloe and all the staff, the service, and the sheer class were exactly what we were looking for on our wedding day.

Chloe was super efficient and organized in the planning of all aspects of the wedding. Offering advice and helping us out when needed, we appreciated that. Thanks to all the staff throughout the process of planning our wedding right up until the day of our wedding. Every time we visited the Shearwater from the moment we booked our wedding date, we were treated like royalty by Chloe and all the staff.

The day of the wedding ran so smoothly, greeted by Chloe and a colleague at the front door, and right throughout the day, constant checks from Chloe and the team to see if was everything okay. Our guests raved about how amazing the service was and how delicious the food was. They are still talking about that 10 weeks later.

We cannot thank Chloe enough and all the team at the Shearwater for the best day of our lives. We look forward to many visits to The Shearwater as a married couple and as a family. Thanks again Sharon and Noel x

We got married last year in the Shearwater Hotel. It was the first and last hotel we looked at. From the moment we got there we were looked after so well.

The staff are incredible. Especially Chloe who went above and beyond for us. She helped us with so much and nothing was any trouble for her

at all. She was always at the other end of the phone to help. The day of the wedding went perfectly, from the reception and the kids club and the food was amazing. I would highly recommended this hotel for a wedding or break away.

Kind regards,
