Having held our wedding ceremony and reception at the Golden Lion Hotel ( 24/03/2012 ) we felt compelled to leave a review to encourage others, so that they too could enjoy the experience we just have. It is hard to know where to begin with this exceptional venue. From the moment we arrived and were introduced to Harold ( the manager ) we knew we had found the perfect place. The hotel itself is stunning and steeped in history, and the professionalism and courtesy of the staff is unquestionable. We really felt as though everyone involved could not do enough for us from the planning stages right through to what we felt was the perfect day.
The food during our meal was amazing and the evening buffet was out of this world, drawing comments from all our guests.
We reserve a special mention for June Wannan, who took care of us from the start and really made us feel anything we asked for could be made possible. June really is a credit to the Golden Lion and we feel she went above and beyond and definately exceeded our expectations.
If you are looking for a wedding venue or even a place to enjoy a beautiful meal and perhaps stay the night, please go along and see for yourself. I know for sure you will not be disappointed.
