Thank you Spread Eagle team...what a perfect start you gave us to married life and we certainly won’t be strangers, we will be booking the weekend for our 1st Anniversary to relive some very special moments.XX

Wow! What an amazing day my husband and I were given by The Spread Eagle. From the moment we started to plan with them in july 2018 nothing was too much trouble. They took the time to listen to what we wanted, and plan it in detail for us at very good price. The venue is beautiful and we fell in

love with it the moment we saw it and even more so on our wedding day. We stayed in the bridal suite which was just lovely. I would recommend this venue to anyone who will listen. We had the whole wedding day at the hotel and they way that they have the room set up for the ceremony was great and made a large wedding feel very personal. When the room is set for the wedding breakfast and party it was just perfect and what we wanted it to be. If I could do the day all over again it would be with the spread eagle. If you are considering this hotel I strongly recommend you arrange to go and have a good look around and sit and discuss what you want your day to be and I can guarantee they will provide it.

Thank you again to Richard and the events team that helped us!

Firstly we'd like to thank all of the Events Team at The Spread Eagle Hotel in helping make our day wonderful.
Everyone who attended has told us how much they enjoyed the day and the venue.
The room we stayed in was stunning. All the other guests who had booked rooms were happy with their

Richard was brilliant and kept everything running smoothly on the day (I can only appologise for the late night - the guests were having so much fun they didn't want to leave!)
The food was delicious. The only negative of the entire wedding was one guest with a special dietry requirement was very upset and rightly so. I feel this could have been dealt with a little better away from the rest of the guests.
The bar staff were brilliant - no one was left waiting for long and they were friendly and polite.
The setting up of the venue was brilliant. It looked stunning and when changing the rooms over it was very prompt and organised. We really felt we were able to fully enjoy the day without worry thanks to your organisation and friendly staff.
I would definitely recommend the hotel as a wedding venue for any future couples considering it. Thank you again. We had an amazing day.
