This was a very suitable venue within easy reach of motorway network and good road links from all directions. The Conference Centre that hosted the meal was located behind the road facing building and that itself enjoyed an elevated position above road level and so little external noise distraction. The events personnel were well on top of proceedings and the wedding meal was well presented and reasonably hot. (At least at the top table). The only slightly disappointing aspect was the time it took to get drinks with what I presume might be a shortfall in experienced bar staff. With that exception, I was personally satisfied with all aspects of service and accommodation and enjoyed an excellent breakfast after a comfortable overnight stay.
