"Firstly a special thanks to Managers Terence and Gerry. From our first meeting, Your guidance, support and efficiency was nothing short of incredible, You really listened to us and delivered everything to perfection. From the beautiful layout of the Birmingham Suite for our Civil Ceremony, right through to the Breathtaking set up of the main function room. Your attention to detail did not go unnoticed and I can honestly say I have never seen such a magical and luxurious setting. And to the meal itself A BIG WOW all 240 guests are still talking about the perfection of each and every one could find fault (and we all know how rare that is) Well done Chefs! Jacob, Bernie and all of your staff are to be complemented. They showed exceptional professionalism and friendliness and by the end of the meal even the "out of towners" felt they had known their table staff all their lives. Stephan, Louis and all of the Bar Staff, though kept on their toes were never once fazed and no one was left waiting (No mean feat with our crew) To Tom and Sally McHugh, A huge well done. Each and every one really enjoyed the whole experience and we have been hearing nothing but compliments for the service received at your gem of a hotel, you and your fantastic team are responsible for that delivery and for captivating everyone the way you did, we truly appreciate this. John and I genuinely could not have been happier with everything and we will be shouting your praises to any newly engaged couples we meet, as we believe will all our guests. For the benefit of anyone who may get the impression we knew all your staff prior to the big day, apart from Terence and Gerry, I would not have known the others well, but each and everyone made such a lasting impression we would never forget their names."
John and Clare

"We just wanted to thank you, Gerry and all the staff for an amazing weekend. Everything went so well and looked great. The meal was delicious and both the ceremony room and reception room looked perfect. Any staff members we dealt with on the day and throughout the weekend were excellent. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Ard Ri House Hotel to other couples."
