Brad and Nicky's Wedding was an overwhelming success and made memorable by the assistance of all at Monate Lodge. We do however have one criticism - the food served on Saturday evening was disappointing. In hindsight, we wish that our Friday Night menu had been repeated as the Wedding Dinner. Overall a memorable and excellent experience.

We really enjoyed our stay and appreciate all the trouble you've gone through to make our Dad's 80th special. We were well looked after and your staff, the food and our rooms were excellent. Thank you very much! We will definitely be back for more special occasions!
