“An Amazing Wedding Day; We had our wedding on Easter Monday and we had a fantastic day. From the initial wedding enquiry the guests arriving from the Sunday and the complete wedding on the Monday everything was faultless. All our guests commented on the food and said how good it was and there was more than enough. Some guests even said it was the best wedding they had been to and what a great venue we had chosen. John, Ami, Lauren and all the staff couldn’t be more helpful and hardworking and made our day so special. We can’t thank them enough”

“Easter bank holiday wedding; Attended a wedding on Easter Monday and we can honestly say that everything was fabulous. Our room was clean, spacious and well presented. The extras like the fridge were very useful. The wedding was well managed, beautifully presented and ran seamlessly from the ceremony right through to the evening reception. The food was generous, tasty and well presented as were the freshly cooked breakfasts from the two mornings we stayed. The staff were courteous and attentive. We will be staying again in the future. Thanks for making our stay a pleasant experience”

“Our wedding day was way more amazing than we ever dreamed it could be and its all thanks to all the staff at The Croft Hotel. To say that the food was amazing is an absolute under statement and the staff couldn’t have been any more attentive and thoughtful. We can never truly thank you enough”

“Firstly I would like to say the biggest thank you to John and all his team and staff that made our day one to remember. The level of professionalism and care we received were second to none. Everything from organising prior to the day, last minute adjustments for guests, the faultless service we and our guests received during the wedding was truly amazing, nothing was too big of an ask or a problem and you were always greeted/served with a smile. Our day ran smoothly with no issues. The ceremony/wedding breakfast rooms were beautiful, coupled with the lovely decorated bar area to which all our guests commented on how much of a stunning/homely venue it is. The 3 course wedding breakfast was received with many compliments on how delicious it was with generous portions… it was some of the best food they have ever eaten. Our stay in the bridal suite was a much needed break after such a busy day… lovely, clean and stocked with various toiletries to ensure we were able to relax.
Breakfast was promptly delivered to our room the following morning which was also high quality and again served with a smile.
We would highly recommend anyone to have their wedding/event here with John and his team”
Thank you again for everything

“Our perfect wedding Day; Wow!!! Where do I begin. The Croft hosted our wedding reception including evening so on 7th August 2021. I had very high expectations after reading other reviews and learning about the hotel having won an award for weddings however still could not have anticipated how fantastic it would be. THANK YOU ALL so much. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and we will cherish the memories forever. Our wedding was originally planned for August 2020 but was sadly postponed due to covid. During this difficult period the staff have been nothing but supportive and reassuring and moved our date with no issue or extra cost. The staff in general have been absolutely amazing. Every person we spoke to on the phone was more than helpful and the general manager always more than happy to answer any questions we might have. On the day the service was second to none. Special thanks to Jon the most recent general manager and Amy the wedding planner who were both present throughout our wedding day and couldn’t have been more accommodating and helpful. The day just ran so incredibly smoothly and their attention to detail was fantastic. We had a large wedding of almost 100 guests plus additional evening guests with about 25% staying overnight. On the Friday night the main wedding party had a pre- wedding meal together after our church rehearsal with many guests also staying the Friday night too. From start to finish the food was exceptional. This included the meals on Friday night, our 3 course wedding breakfast, a selection on canapés, hot evening buffet and breakfast both mornings for the guests that stayed overnight. We were able to give our guests a choice of 3 options for each wedding breakfast course and having personally tasted them all, I can attest they were all delicious and very generous portions! The Croft also provided an alternate option for several vegan guests including a choice of canapé and alternative evening buffet choice. The hotel itself was immaculate and has been extremely well attended to with lots of little details such as the beautiful flowers outside. We had our drinks reception in the bar area before moving through to the two huge function rooms for our wedding breakfast and night do. The rooms looked absolutely stunning!!! Safron and Sage florist and Ultrasound events came recommended by the Croft so we used their services for the room decor including table flowers and candelabras (Safron and Sage) and DJ set up, dance floor hire, sweet car hire and uplighting (Ultrasound Events). The rooms are so mindfully and tastefully decorated that they will work extremely well with any colour scheme. I will review the other vendors separately but I will say here that they were also fantastic! We absolutely loved the bridal suite room with the separate upstairs dressing area and giant hot tub bath! We chose to stay on another night and could easily have stayed a few more. We had planned on going out for a nice meal somewhere else however we’re so cosy we didn’t want to leave the room and ate dinner in the bar area instead! We paid nearly quadruple the price for 3 nights away elsewhere for our ‘mini moon’ and both agreed we preferred the food and room at the Croft! The value for money is excellent. I know I am extremely biased but I can honestly say it was the best wedding I have been to! There are other ‘posher’ or ‘more pricey’ venues close by but I truly mean it when I say that I would still chose the Croft each and every time. Everything about it was just so wonderful and so much better than we could have imagined. Thank you so much to all of the team that made it so special”
