What our customers say

My daughter Ashley married Andrew BartIey last weekend on 17.2.18 at the garden up the hill and then had their reception at the Duke and I am just contacting you to thank you and all your staff for doing such an amazing job on the day for all of us. The food was awesome and everyone had sufficient in choices and amounts and the wine seemed to do the trick quite nicely. However what really made the day super was your staff over the complete complex, Ida was great and your reception people were excellent but your function staff really made it a great experience they were so helpful, knowledgeable and efficient. Nothing was a bother even at the end of the night with the few swimmers and stragglers (including us) we never felt rushed or pressured to leave they just carried on cleaning up around us which was lovely.
