What our customers say

We booked the Duke as our wedding venue around about 1.5 years before our wedding, the only thing we were on time with getting organized and I am so glad we did! Ida and the team could not have been more helpful, with customizing their already delicious menu plan, helping to remind us and organize all those details that are easy to overlook, with moving and removing people around rooms to suit various dates/requirements (we booked the hotel for 4 nights) The staff couldn't have been more helpful and attentive.The hotel itself is beautiful and the setting was just perfect for a wedding. We loved it so much we plan to come back every year for our anniversary!
