The Venue 

“After spending a weekend at the DoubleTree for my 30th birthday we both knew instantly this was where we wanted to get married.

The hotel itself is beautiful and very elegant that alone ahead the wow factor. The fact it overlooks the canal was a massive plus for us to wow our guests. The staff at the DoubleTree are very polite and friendly but also very high class and we knew our guests would feel just as special as we did.”
