I couldn't have asked for a better day, all of the team were absolutely phenomenal, nothing was too much to ask from start to end. All of our guests absolutely loved it and were singing the praises of the staff and venue. We wanted a relaxed wedding where nothing was too formal and Christina and the rest of the staff made all of this happen. We had exclusively of the hotel and this was the best option as we had breakfast with all of our guests in the morning. We had such a beautiful day and if we could relive it all over again we would still choose the Orchid! We will be revisiting on our anniversary to bring back the memories.

Our day was PERFECT.  all our guests are still talking about it weeks later. Christina and her fab team were on hand all day with no job being to big or small they did a fantastic job of making it truly magical.

We couldn't have made a better choice when we choose the Orchid for our wedding. Literally everything was just right for us and our guests, right from our outdoor ceremony all the way to breakfast the next day. The attention to detail and care from the team meant we totally relaxed and just had an unforgettably euphoric day and evening.

I can not say how thankful we are to The Orchid for making our wedding such a special day. Christina and her team made sure everything was perfect from first meeting, to menu tasting, to the big day. The food was amazing and they are so flexible nothing seems too much to of an ask. We had a lovely card left in the honeymoon suite from the hotel, which I thought was a lovely touch. Thank you so much. I can not fault this wedding venue at all.

We recently had our Wedding reception at The Orchid Hotel and it was beyond amazing. Our entire family also stayed in the hotel for the weekend and they couldn’t fault the hotel or the staff. Christina, Mick and the whole team were fantastic and everything came together nicely. Thank you all again
Rob and Carole
What an amazing hotel with amazing staff! We had our wedding here last month and I am so glad that we did – we could not have chosen a better place. From the very first look-around we received nothing but excellent, friendly service – nothing was too much trouble and nothing was a big deal
Mr and Mrs Pepper
What can we say… This hotel gave us our perfect wedding on Sunday 24th September 2017. The staff are amazing, very attentive, the food was delicious! We can’t express how wonderful this place is
Nick and Heather
We had the best time ever at The Orchid. Christina and her team, Lottie, Mike and Chef and his team looked after us and our guests perfectly. The welcome drinks and canapés were delightful and our wedding breakfast was divine. Everything went so smoothly. All guests, day and evening guests, remarked on how beautiful The Orchid is. Excellent venue for a wedding. We had amazing weather too! Elvis turned up later and we all enjoyed ourselves hugely. We do pop into The Orchid for drinks and bar snacks now and again… and that will never stop. It’s like being at home… always a warm welcome. The honeymoon suite is sheer bliss. Big heartfelt thanks to you all
Mr and Mrs Walsh
What can I say?! Thank you all so much for all of your help planning our day on the 19th August and helping it run smoothly. From Christina organising the day from the start, to the housekeeping staff for all their help on the day. You all did an amazing job and you should be proud to have such an incredible team. The guests absolutely loved the food and the hospitality
Cara and Paul
