"To all at Stanley House, Thank you for all your hard work making our wedding as stunning and perfect as it was. The patience shown with the amount of emails back and forth was grately appreciated, We had an amazing day and Stanley House will forever be a very special place to us!XX "
Stephen & Catherine Flynn – 9th September 2017


The whole day ran like clockwork

"Evening Bethany, I just thought I would drop you an email to thank you so much for everything you did for us in preparation for our wedding last Saturday 11th November. The whole day ran like clockwork and we had them most amazing time! A special thank you to Megan and the rest of the team who ensured the day ran smoothly! Thank you again to everyone at Stanley House. Many thanks, Kate"
Hackett & Aspinall - 11th November 2017


We would like to reiterate thanks and appreciation

"To Megan and Bethany, I just wanted to reiterate our thanks and appreciation for all you have both done over recent months. Thank you for all our telephone conversations in the last few weeks, Bethany. Even when we first met we were extremely impressed by your professionalism. To Megan, firstly when I went up yesterday how different the room looked in comparison to our first impression on Saturday, it looked absolutely stunning. Regarding your management skills, Steve and I were watching and we were extremely impressed by your style. Thank you for the organisation of our son’s speech equipment. Regarding the canapes, Duncan and I decided that we must have been stood in the wrong place and all the rugby lads got there first! (This is not a criticism of any of your staff!). Duncan, Steve, Laura and I got what we wanted from beginning to end, we all loved every minute of it. I also wanted to highlight and thank each member who contributed to the amazing success of Kate and Dominic’s wedding. Without each department, including the accommodation playing their individual part it would not have fulfilled our expectations. Best Wishes, God bless."
Mr D & Mrs L Hackett - 11th November 2017


Thank you so much to you all

"To Emma, Andy, Megan and Beth Thank you so much to you and all the staff for your help in the lead up and on the day of our wedding everything was great, ourselves and all our guests had a wonderful day. Thank you again. Jim and Paul"
Mr & Mrs Orrell - 4th November 2017


"Good morning ladies, I just wanted to send a quick email to say Thank you for everything you guys have done.

Beth and Emma, thanks for going through things with me in our first few meetings and making sure everything was right for the day.
Megan, you are absolutely fantastic. You were just the person I needed the day before and the day of the wedding. You got things done and made sure everything was just how we wanted it. You kept us up to date on everything that was happening and made sure each of us knew exactly what we needed to do and where we needed to be. You kept me calm and made me laugh… a lot. You and your staff got me across to my ceremony in horrible weather and did everything you could to keep my hair, makeup and huge dress dry. You are fabulous at what you do and I really appreciate everything you did.
Thank you again, from Mr and Mrs Sharples X"
Greenough & Sharples - 21st October 2017


"Thank you so much for everything you all did for our wedding. From answering our hundreds of questions before the day, to executing all of our plans to perfection, we can’t thank you enough. Everybody commented on how great both the venue and food was. We are so glad we chose Stanley House for our wedding."
Oliver & Sophie Hall – 11th August 2017


"Thank you for your hard work and skill that made our wedding day such a success. We had the most amazing day and cannot express our gratitude enough for the part you played in helping it run so smoothly. The venue looked outstanding and the food was delicious, all commented on by our guests. The effort put in by Beth helping us plan the wedding and by Megan on the day was spectacular and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thank you once again.

As Philip’s parents we would like to express our thanks to all the Stanley House Staff who helped make Philip and Emily’s wedding a very special occasion. Every aspect, the meal, the accommodation and the staff were all excellent."
Emily & Phil Riley – 22nd June 2017


"Thank you for helping us organise our wedding day. You always made us feel at ease by replying to every email, being available when we would just turn up to pay, arriving with a million questions and during the official meetings – especially when we got a first glance at the new bedrooms.

Stanley House is the best wedding venue, not only just for its looks but because the staff are so dedicated to making your day perfect. Thank you once again."
Rebecca & Jonathan – 18th May 2017


"Whilst more than 2 months has passed since Beverley & Adam’s wedding reception on 6th May, we’d still like to convey our thoughts on what a wonderful celebration it was. All the staff involved in preparations and on the day itself, made a great impression on us & many of the guests.

From Bethany’s professional, yet friendly & helpful attitude on the telephone, by email, Skype and in person, patiently guiding us through preparations, to Patryk’s informed and perceptive management of the event, the attention to detail was exceptional. Patryk’s middle names should be ‘I’ll take care of that’!
Additionally I must thank Megan & David who stepped in, calmly helping out when my father was unwell. Happily he was absolutely fine the following day.

Every member of staff we came into contact with at Stanley House was courteous and accommodating. We appreciate that this all contributed to the marvellous day we had."
Andy & Mary Auty
(On behalf of) Beverley & Adam – 6th May 2017


"Dear Andy, We had the most wonderful day on Saturday and we can’t thank yourself and the team at Stanley House enough for a truly unforgettable experience.
Everything was just perfect and even the sun came out when we arrived-phew! But I had so many guests commenting on the beautiful rooms and how helpful and accommodating all of the staff were. Please wish Patryk a special thank you from us too, he was absolutely brilliant during the whole day and it made it even more special.
Also thank you for organising it with us and being so friendly and accommodating throughout.
We couldn’t have wished for a more perfect and stunning day at Stanley House. We will definitely be coming back and we’ll hopefully see you again. Love Laney and Steve"
1st April 2017 - Laney and Steve

"Hi Megan, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for all of your help , you were absolutely amazing and went above and beyond for us as well as keeping me calm and making the day run so smoothly. Thank you ! I don’t know what I’ve of done without you! Lot of love, Matt and Jess xxx"
18th March 2017 - Walker & Clarkson


"Beth, Just want to say a big thank you for helping to plan our big day, and for answering all our random questions about furniture, picture sizes and curtains!
If it hadn’t have been for meeting with you on that first day, we possibly wouldn’t have chosen Stanley House as our venue, and could have missed out on our special day being as special as it was.
Thanks again! Lauren & Dave Donovan xxx"
11th March 2017 - Hargreaves & Donovan


"Hi Megan, Before we go on our honeymoon I just wanted to say a big thank you from me and Roy! You really made everything a breeze yesterday and we can’t thank you enough for your help and organisation skills through out it all, everyone who dealt with you commented on how lovely you were and how nothing was an issue….
We have tonnes of thank you cards to give out when we are back so we will see you soon…. Stacey and Roy xx"
24th February 2017 - Tate & Warrington


"Hi Beth, We just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything that you did for our wedding. It has been so lovely to have your support from day one and we are really going to miss all of the wedding prep. Your hard work certainly didn’t go unnoticed. We are hoping to call in on Saturday afternoon to bring some well-deserved thank you gifts. If you’re not working we will leave them behind the reception desk for you. Thanks again for being so fabulous! Rachel & Chris"

You hosted our daughter’s wedding on Saturday 27 August 2016 and we felt we must write to tell you what a wonderful day we all had. Your staff were amazing before, during and after the wedding. Particular thanks to Bethany, Megan and Patrick – they went the extra mile – nothing was too much trouble and we left knowing we would have only wonderful memories of this very special day."

From start to finish our minds were put at ease and we could not have been left in better hands.

I hope that the management at Stanley House know how good their staff really are – I am sure that they do!

Please would you also pass on our thanks to the rest of your team.

We will be back to Stanley House again soon! Kind Regards."

"Good Morning Stanley House Hotel & Spa, Both myself & James want to extend our thanks to all of the Stanley House Team & The Spa therapists for helping to make our day extra special.

A big thanks to Andy for all the help with the lead up including going the extra mile with the chef’s with the evening buffet ! It was everything we had hoped it would be and made our day that more personal, my father would of been proud!

Megan – Wow!!!! not only did you help to relax me prior to the day and the morning off. From helping me lace my converse to having a tissue to hand, everything was done with such a friendly and professional touch. This thank you not only extends from all the bridal party and the groom but all the guests that attended the day / evening they have all comment on how you have gone the extra mile for everyone. I simply cant thank you enough.

Patrick- What a pleasure, it was fabulous to meet you & Thank you for co-coordinating the evening. It’s nearly a month on and your name is still popping up when we talk about the evening reception with friends. Every task or hurdle that arose, from helping both of us with the cake to chasing James around all evening so he was on time for his first dance It was all done seamlessly without hesitation. The photo & frame gift that you and the rest of the team at Stanley House arranged was unbelievable, so thoughtful and just shows how you & the team go that extra mile !

From the moment we both first walked in to Stanley House back in 2014 till the moment we left on the 30th July 2016 – we felt more like friends then guests —We are both on cloud 9 still! Hope to be back soon and see you all for our next little break! Thank you all!"
James & Ascia - 28th July 2016


"Dear Joy & Luis, Thank you so much for all your help with every stage of our wedding. Joy, you made the planning process easy and stress free with your meticulous attention to detail. This was especially true as you took over our wedding from Beth. You really are a credit to Stanley House.

Luis & Megan, with your hard work the day ran smoothly and was a wonderful experience for us and our guests. Every last detail was taken care of and your attentiveness to our every need was noticed and appreciated greatly.

Our day was the best it could have been.

Obviously, Stanley House is an impeccable venue. But it would be nothing without it`s people. Thank you to you all."
Laura & Dave


"Hi Joy, I just wanted to tell you that my wife, Jan and I were amazed at the quality and precision of the arrangements at our daughters wedding on Saturday. It was flawless in every way; but most importantly was a lovely relaxed and enjoyable event.

We can’t thank you, your team and the many others involved enough. You have a first-class service in lovely surroundings and I can’t think of a single thing I would change to try to make it better. Even the weather, which wasn’t great, had no effect. It was a lovely, lovely day."
Russ & Jan


"We just wanted to thank you for helping to make our daughter Joanne’s Wedding to Brett so perfect. From the very first time we visited Stanley House in August 2010 we were blown away, not only with the beautiful buildings and surroundings but the kindness, warmth and attention to detail shown to us by each and every member of staff. Since booking the Wedding we have been regular visitors to Mr Fred’s and have attended every Wedding Fair. Joy was our Wedding planner and she has been brilliant the whole way through, nothing was too much trouble for her. The week before the Wedding the final meeting was with Ben, he to was brilliant and when we left the meeting with him we were completely filled with confidence that the day would be perfect, and it was. Ben and the whole team were fabulous on the day, and the gentleman on reception overnight was just so kind and helpful. Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts."
Ellen and Steven


"After planning our wedding for 18 months with a number of stumbling blocks in the way over that time i can honestly say Stanley House and its staff delivered to the highest quality, making our wedding reception a truly memorable and wonderful experience for everyone that came and celebrated with us.

Both in the run up and on the day, nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, from those working in Mr Freds to the General Manager, and we were always greeted by extremely friendly individuals on every occasion.

nfortunately my grandad fell ill during the reception and the staff at Stanley House were unbelievable in managing the situation, i cannot thank them enough for all they did during the evening reception, especially Ben (ops team) – he was an absolute star.

We became regular visitors to Stanley House on the run up to our wedding and the can honestly say that the food served across the hotel is beautiful. The surroundings are perfect and the rooms are some of the most stunning i have seen in any hotel we have visited.

You absolutely get what you pay for; and what you get at Stanley House is class, sophistication a beautiful ambiance. It was well worth us blowing our budget and even with hindsight i would do exactly the same again…
We will without doubt continue to be regular visitors to Stanley House and look forward to staying in their new development over the coming year."
Mr & Mrs Williams


"To Emma, David & Crew, Thank you so so much for assisting me so brilliantly throughout the whole preparation for our special day. You did an absolutely amazing job in making our day so perfect, it couldn’t have been any better.
Stanley House is a gorgeous venue and will be well recommended. The comments we had about our wedding were amazing and a lot were down to you wonderful people. We had the most fantastic time with many lovely memories to treasure. So a big big thank you to you all, Love from the new Mr & Mrs McDonnell"
Shelley & Paul


"Hi Emma, Cara and I would just like to express our sincere thanks for everything that you and all the Staff at Stanley House did before and during our wedding to make it the best day of our lives.

Absolutely everyone who came said it was the best wedding they had been to and had an amazing time thanks in no small part to the hard work done by you and your colleagues. The venue couldn’t have worked better and was thoroughly enjoyed by all, the food was great, the accommodation was great and even the weather was on our side, not sure how you arranged for those few hours of sun but thanks!!
I have to point out how wonderful it was dealing with you throughout the planning stages and right to the big day, it was invaluable to have such a great contact to be able to answer all our silly questions as soon as they popped into our heads.

Many Thanks and hope to be back soon,"
Jordan and Cara Graham
