Mr & Mrs Harwood onby
We have just had our wedding at Quorn Country Hotel. It was booked some 14 months before. During that time we read mixed reports on TripAdvisor with some slight concern. There is very good and some bad but read on as it ends well. This is an honest review of our experience.
Let's get the bad out of the way. There seems to be a difference between the reviews of the weddings and the reviews of the hotel. The food and service 'as a hotel guest' isn't great. Thinking it may be the same on our wedding day we addressed our concern to the wedding planner Susan. She is truly something special. Without Susan the venue would not get this review. She gave us total trust in her to ensure we had the perfect day. And we did. The food was good and the service was excellent and in contrast to our previous experience at the hotel restaurant. You can see this trend in the TripAdvisor reviews. From the wonderful welcome we had at check in from Camille to the wedding itself was exceptional. The venue setting is stunning with beautifully kept gardens at the rear, leading to the river. We got the weather and the photos look amazing. Matt was our master of ceremonies and he was also superb, and a credit to the hotel. The effort both Matt and Susan put in was truly outstanding, and just what you want for your special day. They seemed to take immense personal pride in getting it right. And they did. What more can we ask for?
We have a very happy husband and wife reflecting on our perfect wedding. Come on Quorn Country Hotel, you have a gem of a venue here and some fantastic staff on the wedding side of it which clearly reflects in the TripAdvisor reviews. Sort the non wedding side of it out and you've got a very good hotel too. Or, just get Susan onto it!
