"Everything that the hotel did made it the most perfect day for me and Emma. The biggest compliment that I can give is that it takes special people to make you feel that this is also important to them and for that I am so very grateful. From George to Karen to the receptionists they were really lovely people. As a manager I know that its the people that make the business and would just like to say you have some great people working at the Hotel."


"We were recently married at this hotel and it was truly wonderful. The service and attention to detail was fantastic and helped to make our day one which we will always treasure. The quality of the surroundings is second to none, with the food being out of this world. The hotel is set in stunning surroundings with amazing views of the lake and mountains.

The hotel manager Gary and Jonathan Wild the Wedding Co-ordinator, went out of their way to ensure that ourselves and our guests had a perfect stay. We will be returning to this hotel in the near future, to relax and enjoy the wonderful setting."

"We chose the Inn on the Lake for our Wedding venue for its excellent reputation and beautiful surroundings. During the preparations we were impressed by the courteous, efficient and friendly staff. We owe special thanks to our Wedding planner Kerri Barr, whose meticulous attention to detail made everything easier, she became like a friend to us.

We also owe special thanks to our wedding Day co-coordinator, George for his expertise and his marvellous sense of humour. Two of our guests, Liz and Jim Quinn from Belfast, commented to George that the Inn on the Lake should be a 5* star venue, which says it all.

We and our guests had a marvellous day- in our opinion, 'Quality' is an apt description of the Inn on the Lake. Kind regards"
