We were looking for a place that would feel intimate, but formal enough to impress the many guests who were flying in from overseas. The venue itself is stunning, the great hall, the reception room - it takes one's breath away, but what really impressed us was the kindness and professionalism of the team. [...] The food was delicious, the atmosphere amazing - it really was a magical evening.
