Showcasing its unique touches, the newly-refurbished hotel will welcome guests with a glass of bubbly, while the wedding suite will have a brighter, contemporary look. During the event, brides- and grooms-to-be will enjoy tours of the venue and get to meet the team to discuss personal requirements. the-bar-2 “The refurbishment of our main function suite is long overdue and we can’t wait to show off the new look, part of the hotel’s £1 investment, at our wedding weekend in January,” explains Lauren Manning, wedding coordinator.

“We look forward to meeting newly engaged couples on Saturday 28th or Sunday 29th January – complimentary admission on both days – to discuss wedding day requirements.
