Wedding Testimonials

Here you can read what some of our newlyweds and their families have to say about The Gables...

All we can say is the venue and yourself and Dean made the whole wedding experience 'perfect'. All family and friends have commented what a great venue and a lovely day it was. We cannot fault anything .. 10 out of 10 to both you and Dean and all the hotel team!

We held our wedding there two weeks ago and the day went perfect . The staff were so helpful on the day and left us nothing to do except enjoy the day. The rooms were clean and the beds really comfortable and good showers. The food was of good quality and plenty of it, also reasonably priced . The breakfast was probably one of the best I have had. We have been there to stay a few times before our wedding day and have never had any complaints. Thanks to all the staff and the wedding planners Emma and Zoe for a unforgettable day!

From the moment we first booked our wedding reception we experienced first class service and knew we had the best venue. We both have extremely high standards and the hotel and staff really did deliver, many of our party stayed for more than one night and all had the highest praise for their rooms.We have eaten at The Gables on many occasions now. From Sunday lunches, to specific events, to our wedding and of course breakfast. On every single occasion they have delivered delicious, high quality, good value food. The service on our wedding day was top notch and all food was served piping hot with good portion sizes and in a timely manner. The staff really are what makes this hotel one we will go back to time and time again, particularly if we need to hold an event. Every single member of staff we dealt with was friendly and attentive, nothing was too much trouble and it's clear that a high standard is placed on them. They deliver at every turn. In summary this is a wonderful hotel with extremely helpful staff, great food, clean accommodation and all at an extremely competitive rate.

The staff helped to make this a very special day. They did everything we asked for and more for this wedding reception and everyone had a special day. We chose this hotel having looked at others locally because of the friendly atmosphere, value for money, and accessibility. We were not disappointed.

"Myself and my new bride recently had our wedding reception at the gables hotel. The food was excellent and the staff were very attentive. Could not have gone any smoother or been better. All the families were very happy. All the rooms were very reasonably priced and we have even booked an event there in September this year."

"We recently had our wedding reception at The Gables and the whole experience was outstanding, they knew exactly what we wanted and nothing was too much trouble! I would highly recommend anyone who is looking for a reception for their wedding! The attention of the staff on the day was second-to-one and we could not be more pleased. They made our already special day even more fantastic - a proper fairytale wedding."

"We chose The Gables for our wedding reception because of the amazing deals they had going, but it was money well spent, the staff were very attentive to everyone, nothing was too much trouble. The food was great and the rooms were comfortable after the party finished. The function room looked fantastic with its low lighting and romantic atmosphere. I couldn't fault this place if I tried, thanks very much for making our day that much easier."

"We have just enjoyed a fantastic weekend at the Gables Hotel as the chosen venue for our daughter's wedding. All during the planning and the weekend itself we have not been able to find fault with the professionalism, helpfulness and ploiteness shown by all staff members. Any requests we made were accommodated immediately and suggestions made by the staff only enhanced the proceedings. We enjoyed a perfect day and all of our 90+ guests were full of compliments for the wedding meal, the evening buffet, any Friday evening meals taken and for the breakfasts. Our bedroom was modern, clean and spacious, with a very comfortable bed/ My daughter and her husband were very relaxed all day (so was I) and enjoyed every minute. Many thanks to Andrew, Jason, Gabriella and all staff members for making it truly a day to remember."

"My wife & I with several other family members have just spent 2 nights in the Gables, it was the venue for our eldest daughters wedding. I have to say we were very impressed with all aspects of the hotel. From a warm welcome & very efficient check in right through to our departure we were constantly aware of how hard the staff worked to make our stay memorable.
The deputy manager Jason; went above & beyond the call of duty. He excelled in his organisational skills, making everything run smoothly for my daughters big day. Nothing was too much trouble, he managed our expectations commendably & made sure everything happened exactly as it should. He is a credit to Best Western...
Our room was very clean, well appointed & we had a lovely super king size bed, with everything else we needed to make our stay comfortable. The food was excellent as was the service, the bars were well stocked & all of the staff worked hard to make sure everybody got served in a timely & friendly fashion.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anybody looking for a friendly pit stop or a location for an important function. The hotel is just a few minutes away from Junction 14 on the M5 & 10 minutes from our eldest daughters home. I feel certain that we will visit this hotel again & again."
