Venue Testimonials

My husband and I recently got married at the Kirkton. The wedding coordinator was so organised and we always felt like we were in safe hands which meant we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves. We were so happy with all the staff, the venue and the food and we would highly recommend the Kirkton to anyone looking for a wedding or function venue.

I had my wedding here last weekend and cannot fault the experience at all. The event coordinator is absolutely fantastic. The venue is well kept and the upgrades/new renovations look great. The food is high class and the staff are very professional. If you are considering having an event here I highly recommend doing so. Absolute dream come true. Thank you KP.

Just finished a 3 day conference at the Voco Kirkton Park and it was fabulous!! The staff were amazing and incredibly attentive, the food was sublime and the cottages were huge. The beds were super comfy. I will definitely bring the family back and sample all the activities. Thank you so much!
