We had to squeeze the bottles with both hands which meant that the liquid landed on the edge of the basin. I...

My sister and brother-in-law held their wedding here in June 2014. The event was well-organised, the staff were extremely attentive and the food was delicious. The lovely weather on the day meant that we could make use of the beautiful outdoor areas too. Thank you and well done to Billy and the team :-)
