Although we hadn't set a date I persuaded my now husband to attend the rose and crown wedding open day. He was quite hesitant but as soon as we walked in he was pleasantly surprised. Despite living only a few roads away his whole life he hadnt realised what a big place it was. He had thought from the outside that it would be a tiny venue....wrong!! The space is a very nice size and the way the rooms are laid out makes the day flow very well. No standing around outside while the rooms are swapped around which I had experienced at many other venues.
The staff at the rose and crown gave us a tour and told us how the day would run and answered any questions we had. The service and friendliness from that very first meet was exeptional. They then gave us the prices and we literally booked there and then. The value for money seemed too good to be true.
Leading up to the wedding we had several meetings and email correspondence woth staff and all of our questions were answered quickly and they accomadated all of my requests.
My two bridesmaids, mum and I stayed in a suite the night before which was recommended by the hotel and it was so lovely. (A double bed and two singles) we then had breakfast in the hotel the morning of the wedding wearing our personalised robes. All of the staff were so friendly, wishing me luck etc
The wedding itself was amazing. Everything ran exactly to plan. The staff went out of their way to make sure of it and couldn't do enough to help.
The wedding food was absolutely delicious ... I had so many people comment on how good it was in the weeks that followed. One friend had been to 3 weddings before mine (one actually the day before) and said that our food was by far the best.
At the end of the day the staff cleared away everything and wouldn't accept any help despite us offering.
My husband & I then stayed in the honeymoon suite that night which again, was a very lovely room followed by breakfast in the morning with some of our guests.
Everyone that stayed agreed what a lovely hotel it was and almost all of my wedding guests commented on what a lovely venue it was and that it was actually laid out better than most of the other venues in the area which cost a lot more money and didn't include half of what was included in the rose and crown package.
I had the perfect day, the staff were FANTASTIC and I wouldnt have changed a thing.
