What our customers say

I just want to give you the biggest thank you ever for your part in making Sophie’s wedding so perfect. You were wonderful through the whole process. It seemed like nothing was too much trouble for you and the whole thing was just seamless from whoa to go. Is it my memory or was it really a more or less stress free wedding! Can you please pass on my thanks to everyone else at the Duke who played a part on the night and in the weeks leading up to it. The combination of a stunning venue and restaurant class food is quite rare for weddings and it’s what all the guests commented on but for me the additional bonus of having all the support staff associated with the hotel was just fantastic- little things like the help we got in choosing the wines, the excellent service at the tables, the way all the candles etc were packaged up for us at the end - at the last wedding we went to the bride’s family were there till 2 am clearing up. Well I’ll stop now otherwise it’s going to sound like an Oscar award speech but really it was fantastic and I am so grateful to everyone who played a part in making it so.
