"All our requirements were met without any problems from the word go! Lynsey, our wedding co-ordinator was so accommodating with all our requirements. Trish and the rest of the team did a marvellous job with the High Peak wedding suite as it looked AMAZING. The food was fabulous, everyone complimented how good it was and the service was great – couldn’t have wished for anything better. A big thank you for a fabulous day and we truly enjoyed our wedding day at The Palace Hotel."

"Martin and I just wanted to thank you - very belatedly - for helping to make our wedding day perfect. It seems like an age ago now (November!), but we have just got around to sorting through the pictures from the day and it brought back so many happy memories. We thought you might like to see a small-ish selection featuring the Palace at its finest (attached). Jo, thank you for your patience, support and attention to detail in the build up to the day - we couldn't have done it without you. Trish - you were brilliant; the rooms looked exactly how I had imagined them and all the staff working throughout the day and night were fabulous. I can't tell you how many positive comments we received from our guests about the venue and the staff. Thanks, too, must go to the chef. The food was simply superb. We had a great party in the evening and were joined by several other hotel guests, which was lovely. We really appreciated you letting the music go on a little over the time stated, as everyone was enjoying themselves so much. Your flexible and accommodating approach to the day and night made it the fun, relaxing event we had hoped for. We'll never forget our day at the Palace and we would recommend it as a wedding venue a thousand times over."

It is needless to say that the Palace hotel and the surroundings are absolutely gorgeous and our guests from all over the world enjoyed ambiance and hospitality immensely.
