We 1st visited the hotel for a friends wedding a few years ago so when it came to looking for a wedding venue for ourselves, Hotel St. Pierre was the 1st and only venue we looked at. We were sold from our 1st meeting with Mel the wedding planner. This lady is worth her weight in gold. She's goes above and beyond every second of her working day (she finished at 10pm on the night of the wedding and was back in Sunday morning before I opened my eyes!) Every single email I sent to Mel during my wedding planning was answered straight away and there was not 1 thing that she couldn't do. She kept me calm and the whole day was perfect. All staff are so helpful, smart, polite and friendly.
I arrived on Friday evening with all my family to spend the night before the wedding in the hotel. We were checked in by the lovely Charlie on reception- my little one took a shine to the mister with the same name as him haha. We were given our keys and shown to our room on the 2nd floor. It was warm, clean and smelt very fresh. Even though I didn't get much sleep, this was by far THE most comfy bed I have ever ever slept in 😴
We had a pamper with lovely Liz and Kennedy in Tu Es Belle Spa- a lovely little room to chill out in with the girls- all our wedding makeup was done here too for a very reasonable price.
Breakfast was served in the restaurant between 8am and 10am and our order was taken by Wayne. This guy is the friendliest man I've ever met working in a hotel- he was so genuinely happy to meet any request at all, even my little boys demand for a plate of strawberries twice. Thanks Wayne you've made our weekend.
The whole day was perfect and ran like a dream- the ceremony and reception rooms were beautifully dressed, all food was AMAZING and all waiting and bar staff couldn't of done anymore for us.
All my suppliers have commented on how fab the hotel are to work with.
Bar prices were very reasonable (archers & lemonade, dissarano & coke and 2 jagerbombs came to less than £15)
The hotel is right next door to newmillerdam for walks (and perfect wedding snaps)
The evening reception was fab, Richard the DJ was brilliant and the dance floor was packed all night with music for all ages. Food was gorgeous again- thanks chef!
All our guests had the best time at the hotel and I'm sad it's all over- 100% recommended this hotel to anyone thinking of having a wedding (or any celebration)
Thank you to all staff- Mel, Wayne, Liz & Kennedy, Charlie, Anna, all the cleaners, waiting staff, bar staff you're all the best in the business.
THANK YOU for making us feel so welcome and at home and creating our perfect day. Love Mr & Mrs Anderson 7th January 2017 xxx less

What a wonderful review. Although we like to think we are doing a great job, it is always so rewarding to see something like this. I will be sure to show it to the whole team.
