"Claire and I had an amazing wedding day, as it seems did all of our guests due to the phenomenal messages we have received. As you know we put our heart and soul into our wedding day, and we pleased that you and your team also felt you should go the extra mile for us. We have nothing but praise for all the staff at the Mandolay. Every single member of staff was attentive, helpful and friendly. Tami, you stepped in late in proceedings. This was a distressing time for Claire, but soon after meeting you she knew she was in capable hands. In fact you were much more responsive. As for your staff. We could see how hard they were all working on our wedding day. Their enthusiasm was apparent from the moment we arrived from Church - it seemed that our wedding had given them a boost. We were told how amazing the room looked compared to some of your weddings, and we felt that after what happened the day before everyone really stepped up. We would particularly like to thank Luke and Louis for their help with many operational elements. Dealing with my best men, can't have been easy for any of you - but they spoke highly of the boys. The bars staff - all of them - were great. We even saw some of the bar staff dancing as they worked, which was lovely. Nobody complained at all about service, in fact the contrary - we have received compliments. We would also like to highlight the quality of the food - again we received many compliments about dinner and the buffet. The service was excellent. But we were very impressed on the day. Thanks to everyone from us both."

"I recently held a large party event at the Mandolay. It went very well. Everyone who dealt with me was excellent. Louis on the night made sure everything was organised and well presented. My guests enjoyed the food, (chef was visible too). The bar staff were friendly. I couldn't have asked for more from booking (thank you Ailsa). Right through to the end everything was perfection. Thank you. I am just looking for another excuse to host an event here."

"We just wanted to say thank you so much for everything. The staff that were working were so friendly and helpful. The venue was beautifully clean and smart. The food was just amazing. Please pass on our grateful thanks. We were so lucky with the weather and all of the elements came together just right. Gemma's calligraphy on our butterflies was exquisite and Kathryn's flowers were just divine. We were so pleased with our choice of venue and the suppliers used. It was just absolutely THE perfect day. We couldn't stop smiling from start to finish. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

"Thank you for all your help and support. we just returned back from our honeymoon and back at work and routine as usual. I would like to highly commend the great job done by you guys and the entire planning team in ensuring our wedding was special from the very beginning. One key highlight for me is the fact that planning a wedding long distance without ever meeting the team is not the easiest task, yet the communication was timely and detailed and allowed me to have the comfort of planning with your team as though it was done face to face if not better. The event day was also flawless. With the exception of small glitch of music sound check (which was pretty stressful) everything went smoothly and as per agreed plan so job well done! All in all, food was good, set up good, team great :) recommended suppliers were also very easy to work with and very helpful. Thanks for making our day even more special. I would highly recommend the Mandolay Hotel for events in the future."
