Wedding Reviews

"Hi Bethany, Many thanks for the work you put in to organising Katy and Dannys wedding.

We had a wonderful day on Sunday and everything ran very smoothly. The staff at Stanley House were great and we couldn’t have wished for a nicer day."
Milly and Paul Wilson - 25th September 2016


"Hi Bethany, Please do put our comments on your website, your excellent service deserves to be recognised! Our family and friends can’t stop talking about the wonderful time they had! Janis.

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."
Janis & Steve Gilpin - 27th August 2016


"Hello, Patryk and Bethany, A massive thank-you from myself and Jimmy for an amazing wedding reception. We truly could not have asked for more professionalism, kindness and superb organisation.

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."
Lauren & Jimmy

"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
