    Simply the best!

    I wish I could give more than 5 stars!

    We have recently got married here and it was honestly the best day of our lives. Everything from start to finish was absolutely incredible, nothing was ever too much for the staff or the venue. Many of our guests commented on the fantastic service throughout our day and throughout our stay. Due to Covid - this was the 3rd time we've had a wedding date set at the venue, each and every time Stanley House have been professional, welcoming, understanding and made us feel at complete ease. I first met my wedding co-ordinator Maddison in 2018 and I knew straight away, the venue was right for us. Maddisons caring and welcoming nature made it feel like we were genuinely cared about and it started our wedding planning process very well. She kept me up to date with everything every step of the way including on our wedding day.
    I felt like an extremely calm bride on my wedding day and this was down to feeling completely comfortable with how the day was going to run in their hands.
    Stanley House will always be an extremely special place to us, it's just simply spectacular, the grounds, the manor house, the accommodation, the spa...everything.
    I would definitely recommend this venue, I'm already looking forward to going back.

    Thank You

    To all the staff and especially the wedding co-ordinators….
    ..Just wanted to say many many thanks to you all for making our daughter’s wedding day so special, the whole day was amazing!
    The venue was beautiful as was the food (compliments to the chefs).
    We were all made to feel so special from the moment we arrived and nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff.
    All the guests have commented on the friendliness and professional way of your whole team and what a fantastic day it was.
    Stanley House will be highly recommended to others and we are sure will be talked about for a very long time amongst our family and friends.
    Many Thanks To You All..

    Exceeded our expectations

    Natalie and I would like to thank you, Brittany and Maddison for all your help in planning and organising our wedding at Stanley house. We had a perfect day and everything exceeded our expectations, the only sad thing is that it is all over!
    Also please could you thank Joe and Megan for their help on the day, Joe was very reassuring after our meeting on the Thursday when we were in a last minute panic and they both helped us massively throughout the day!

    Perfect

    We got married here last month and I have to say it was the most wonderful day of our lives! Everything from start to finish was just perfect. Everyone commented on how calm I was from the moment we booked our date and this was partly down to choosing Stanley house as my venue. Emma and the rest of the fantastic team of staff thought of everything, helped with everything and really did go above and beyond to make sure our day was just perfect. The suppliers they work with again were superb. The Flower Shop & Brides Helper are two to mention! The day was perfect from start to finish and I could not recommend Stanley House enough! Full five stars for venue, staff, accommodation, food….the list could go on! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Mr & Mrs Gregory.

    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

    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.

    The service has been absolutely amazing

    From the very first moment when we had a tour around the hotel, to all of the planning and the day itself the service has been absolutely amazing. Bethany is fabulous at her job, not only did she do a full tour of Stanley House with myself and my now husband, but she repeated the full tour again a few days later when we took my Mum to visit. Bethany also has been amazing at responding to all emails and happily found answers to any questions we may have had.
    As the wedding got closer we were handed over to Megan and again, she is brill at her job. She kept everything on the wedding day running so smoothly and helped me feel like a princess on the day. Nerves had got the better of me a bit and I was feeling a little bit sick during the meal but I felt comfortable speaking to her – the staff are all not only professional but really approachable too and almost feel like one of your friends on the day. She also knows how to best have all of your suppliers set the room up in the day and evening and I would recommend any Brides and Grooms to go with her advice.
    Stanley House is just perfect – we stayed in bridal suite 7 which is immaculate, and all of our guests who stayed over were equally thrilled with their rooms. Every part of the hotel and gardens is just as beautiful as the bedrooms.
    In terms of food and drink, everything throughout the wedding day and also breakfast the next day were fabulous, and once again the waiting on staff couldn’t do enough for you. I would like to also mention the bar and reception staff who were faultless.

    Thank you for your hard work

    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.
