Some beautiful words

- Mr & Mrs Springthorpe-Child, October 2023 -

We had an amazing day, with our closest family and friends. The evening was great too and everything ran on time. I would like to firstly thank you Jess for your efforts and communication in making our day amazing. We really appreciate the thoughtfulness and consideration you put into the planning by working alongside us for what we wished for. It was a pleasure to work with you and we feel you have given us a great service Secondly I would like to thank Alex. We had so many nice comments about your attitude and pleasant manner with the guests. You were there for us at all times during the day and we cannot thank you enough. You made the day run smoothly, listened to our requests and helped us whenever we needed. Thank you again! Lastly I would like to thank the staff on the day for their service. Thank you also for giving us a private area for breakfast dining the day after, it was really appreciated.

- Mr & Mrs Springthorpe-Child, October 2023 -

Our day wouldn’t have been nearly as amazing without Jess, Alex and all their colleagues in the background. We had so many compliments from guests about how beautiful the venue was, our mums wanted us to say thank you on their behalf too for. Everything was so perfect, exactly how we had imagined over the the last 3 years but just with an extra bit of added magic. Big thank you to Alex for making each turn around of the room so wonderful, we really did feel like we had a fairy tale day and it wouldn’t have happened without either of you. Thank you so so much, from the bottom of our heart. 

- Mr & Mrs Ward, September 2023 -

I cannot thank the team at Cottons enough for making our wedding day the best day of our lives! From beginning to end the team worked tirelessly to ensure that everything was absolute perfection. Special thanks must go to Jess our coordinator who was always at the end of the phone to answer enquiries and many questions - nothing was ever too much trouble. Another special thanks to Alex who did an amazing job of running the day - even though we arrived later than expected! The day was just amazing from beginning to end - the food was superb, bar staff were fantastic and accommodation was brilliant. The dancefloor absolutely made our night and was packed right up until 1am! I would highly recommend Cottons hotel to anyone planning a wedding. It was the best decision we made aside from saying I do!

- Kayleigh & Aimee, October 2023 -

Thank you so much for EVERYTHING you did for us, we viewed so many venues before Cottons and once we viewed Cottons it was such an easy yes! We couldn’t have asked anymore from the whole process, everything was always so quick and nothing was any trouble. Alex did a great job from start to finish, we let him decide on where things should go and he did a great job, everything looked perfect. The whole day went so smoothly, nothing went wrong and things just fell into place, with a lot of hard work from you guys I’m sure! Our day was perfect and we can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for us, you all made our special day extra special. 

- Mr & Mrs Phillips, June 2023 -

Thank you so much for all your help in the run up to and on the wedding day!! It was absolutely invaluable!

We had the most fantastic day and loved every minute of it!! If we could do it all again, we wouldn't change a thing as it was absolutely perfect!! Your bar staff were fantastic, quick and so accommodating! We have had endless remarks about the fantastic food, which we loved!! The Cottons will always hold a special place in our hearts!

Thank you again Jess! It was so appreciated!

- Mr & Mrs Glynn, June 2023 -

TI would like to say a huge thank you to every single member of your team, from start to finish the staff at the Cottons have been amazing. 

From Karen to Jess the planning process was flawless and made me relax so much. Your fast response to my emails and attention to detail has been great all the way through.  The whole weekend went great. From meeting Alex on Friday I knew we were in good hands. Arrival and evening meal on Saturday was lovely.  Sunday was outstanding, the staff were incredibly attentive and to be honest we didn't notice them but noticed the work they were doing. Having worked in hotels in the past myself and Jacob were amazed by their work. The bar staff were so nice and friendly. The food could not have been complemented enough, it was gorgeous.

Alex was amazing and at 1am, he was still tidying up after me. He was there on hand through it all. Nothing was too much trouble for him at all, he pre-empted our needs and was on hand throughout the day and night into the early hours. He made the day flow and nothing went wrong. My mum was thanking the staff herself as she was so happy and impressed and she's a hard lady to please. The only word to describe the day was perfect. My requests were precise and everything was met and if not improved. 

Thank you all so much again. Myself and Jacob can't wait to return and recommend to any couple looking for a venue.

I would highly recommend the Cotton’s Hotel and Spa, as they seamlessly executed one of the best days of my life. We held our 60-person international wedding at their venue and experienced very few hiccups during the process. Any issues were sorted, and sorted very professionally and apologetically, and our wedding day was wholly executed to perfection. They do only work with wedding planners likely to prevent as few issues as possible.

All of our guests LOVED the food selections, and the portions were more than generous. The rooms were flipped seamlessly as we had chosen to utilize two of their spaces to separate the ceremony and reception, and what began as a breakfast room and a meeting room were absolutely transformed by our dresser and the Cottons’ team.

I would like to praise their staff immensely for their professionalism, courteousness, and patience. They were absolutely fabulous! Jess the coordinator was always calm and collected, and just wonderful to work with. The banquet managers Ryan and Alex were both just incredible. Ryan was so cool under pressure when an issue arose with breakfast, and I just cannot thank him enough for his calm and professional acumen. Alex was working on the day, and stayed with us until the party was over (1:00 AM!) and even helped me find things which moved after he was preparing to leave for the night! Such a nice person. Finally, MAX. Give him a raise, he was just delightful. Many of my guests somehow knew him by name, and everyone just complimented him on his geniality and genuine customer service. He was just wonderful. Tom was very pleasant as well.

To all the staff, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. It could not have been more perfect. I am happy to write a more concise review on any platform but just wanted to regurgitate all of our feelings in one lump review. The hotel, spa, and staff are just magnificent. We would recommend the venue to anyone who may ask.

- Mr & Mrs Moss, December 2022 -

The Cottons Hotel and Spa held our wedding day and what a day it was. These guys are the best nothing was too much and the attention to detail is outstanding. Jess and Alex what a credit you are your amazing at what you do. I wouldn't have changed a thing. Thank you so much.

- Mrs & Mrs Evans, November 2022 -

We had an amazing time over the weekend, it all just went too fast, before we knew it, it was 1am. The food was superb, everybody said how good both the meal and the evening buffet was. Alex was amazing and couldn’t have done anymore for us, he made sure everything was going as we wanted, he made sure the room was as we wanted and even helped sort out a balloon arch we had put together the night before. Above and beyond is what I would call it. There were 2 lads serving the meals and wine with Alex, they were fantastic, everybody commented on how much fun they were and had the room laughing.

A credit to the hotel. Jess, you made sure our day was as we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble. And we can’t thank you enough for making our day perfect. Cottons is an amazing place and we knew from the moment we walked in for the first time that we were going to get married there, everybody in the hotel was friendly and helpful. Thank You so much again.

- Mrs & Mrs Wall, October 2022 - 

We knew the moment we walked into Cottons that it was the place we wanted to get married. The staff were welcoming and made us feel so comfortable. Throughout the whole process they made us feel valued and nothing was a bother or too much. The wedding coordinator, Jess, was one of the best we'd ever met, she was always on hand for any changes or issues we had, was incredibly friendly and accessible. She made sure she was there throughout our planning and even came in on her day off to see us on the big day.

Truly felt special, all of our guests commented on how nice and entertaining the staff were, how amazing the food was, and many have said how they would use Cottons going forward. Some of the family members have even booked family celebrations for next year with them due to how amazing they were on the wedding day. Everything from food to decor was perfect, we truly couldn't imagine having got married anywhere else.

- Mrs & Mrs Edwards, July 2022 - 

I'd just like to say a great big thank you to yourself, Alex and the team.  We had an amazing day on Saturday, it couldn't have gone any better, you have all been fabulous and put in so much effort to make it a day to remember. Thanks again.

- Mrs & Mrs Lears, July 2022 - 

We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for helping us to make the best day we have ever had.  We are so grateful to you for all the advice and guidance you gave us at our meetings.  We couldn’t have done it without you.

Alex did us proud and we’d have been lost without him.  He was so professional and made sure everything went smoothly. You are both a credit to the Cottons Hotel.  Keep doing what you’re doing because you’re both fab!!!

- Mrs & Mrs Judge, May 2022 - 

Thank you so much for all your help over the wedding. We had such an amazing day! Thankfully the weather played ball. Sooooooo many people commented on the staff at the venue in particular Jodie and the 2 guys at the bar in the evening, everyone was fabulous! The food was incredible! And to Jodie, once again, thank you!!!! 

- Mr & Mrs Lewis, April 2022 - 

We would like to thank you and the team for everything that was done to make our wedding day extra special. Alex was absolutely fantastic on the day too, nothing was to much trouble and he made us feel at ease.

All our guests have commented on what a fantasy day it was and how nice the food and venue were. We would definitely recommend Cottons to anyone organising an event or just wanting a nice relaxing break. We hope to return ourselves at some point in the near future on a spa weekend. Thank you again for looking after us so well and ensuring that the run up to the day itself was as stress free as possible for the both of us.

- Mr and Mrs Potts, April 2022 -

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you guys did /sorted for our wedding. We had the most special day and it all flowed smoothly, I honestly could not have asked for anything from you. You did an amazing job and we are very grateful.

- Mr and Mrs Madden, March 2022 -

Just wanted to thank you so much for everything over the past 6 months you have been absolutely amazing. We had the most amazing day and just want to do it over and over again. Everything ran so smoothly from everyone at the hotel we can't thank you enough! 

- Mr and Mrs Meehan, March 2022 -

We'd like to say a huge thank you, we had the best, most magical day everyone worked amazingly to make sure everything was done, Jodie is an absolute credit to the hotel she is lovely and was amazing on the day thank you for all the support and finally helping us get married many thanks.

 - Nicola and Carl Dawson, January 2022 -

Just wanted to say a huge Thank-you for being so amazing with us whilst we planned our wedding at Cottons. You had the patience of a saint answering all of my questions and replying to my many emails!  We had the most perfect day, it was just beautiful. Every member of staff that we dealt with were so friendly and helpful. On the day Alex was brilliant, he really looked after us. We couldn’t fault anything.  Hope to see you in the near future when we return to Cottons for a meal or stay.
- Mr & Mrs Heyes, December 2021 -

It was a fantastic day, and we cannot thank you and the team enough for making it happen. On that, we would like to give a special mention to Caitlin, who was absolutely brilliant on the day, especially when the registrar was running late and we had no idea. Once again, thank you so much for all your help and hard work! We'll definitely be recommending The Cottons Hotel to everyone we know!
- Mr & Mrs Trollope, March 2020 -

- Julie & Alan, September 2019 - 

Thank you for everything that you did to make our wedding day the special day that it was. You made sure that everything was perfect and we appreciated that all the final tweaks were in place and nothing was too much trouble to you. What we really appreciated was that you were as excited about our big day as we were.
- Alison & Andrew, September 2019 - 

We can't thank you enough. You and all the staff were amazing. We could not fault one thing about our whole experience with you. Thanks again for everything.

Thanks for all your hard work making it such a success we really appreciate how you stepped in with a few weeks to go, also thanks to the lovely lady who was our master of ceremonies she worked very hard too.
- Clare & Matthew, July 2019 -

Everything was flawless from the day we came for a show around until leaving as Mr and Mrs. Special thanks go to Jenny and Stevie for helping us with the whole process of organising every detail of the day over the last 11 months and then to Kurt for helping run the day so smoothly. We had an amazing day and we have heard so much great feedback from our guests. I would highly recommend Cottons for weddings as the staff and venue are both absolutely amazing.

We had our wedding here, it was amazing had a fantastic day and evening. Kurt the toastmaster was lovely really helpful and the DJ was great too. Food was amazing everyone had a wonderful time. The spa is well worth a trip we also had our nails and bridal make up done at the spa. Also, the rooms were amazing too especially the bridal suite, beds very comfy everything you needed.

I just wanted to express our huge thanks to you and your team for our wedding on 31.12.18. The day ran so smoothly and the staff were so attentive and accommodating. I'd like special thanks to go to yourself for the organisation of the day; to Rachel and also to Ryan. They made sure it all worked on the day - I can't express how much they did for us on the day and how much attention to detail they showed.
