Our wedding experience at the Eccles was amazing. Marie Our wedding coordinator and all the staff on the day were brilliant. We had a great time and our guests also had a lovely time. If we could do it all over again, we would definitely not hesitate to pick the Eccles. My wife and I would like to thank all the staff and management for making it such a special day.

We couldn't recommend the Eccles Hotel enough as a wedding venue. From the very first meeting, Marie and her team were just so accommodating. There was no request too awkward and they even gave us lots of ideas we hadn't thought of ourselves. On the day of the wedding everything ran to perfection, the meal was amazing and our guests are still talking about it now. The venue itself is simply beautiful- both the views and the interior decor provide a stunning backdrop for photographs. We just wish we could go back and do it all again!

Cliff and I celebrated our wedding in The Eccles Hotel in May 2022. We initially picked it as it was in a stunning location and had a lovely old-world feel about it. Due to Covid, we had to reschedule and since then the hotel has been renovated and have added the spa. It has modernised the rooms and the finish is impeccable but it still maintains the old world feel that we initially fell in love with. On the day itself, there is nothing we would change. The food was phenomenal and the service was even better. Nothing was too much trouble for Marie the wedding coordinator or any of the staff throughout the hotel. Many of our wedding party remained in the hotel again the day/night after the wedding and the outstanding customer service continued. The breakfast was one of the best I have ever experienced in a hotel. From beginning to end the Eccles exceeded our hopes for our day and I could not recommend them enough. The renovated Yeats suite is also a sight to behold!

We want to say how absolutely outstanding The Eccles Hotel and Spa were for our wedding on the 21st May 2022. From beginning to end it was faultless. From the very first phone call to Marie their wedding coordinator, she was a joy to deal with. Nothing was ever a problem. The reservations manager Sandra was also fantastic. And after all the planning the wedding day came and the hotel made our day just magical. Each of the staff are so professional, helpful and friendly. The food was in the words of our guests "the best they ever had at a wedding". The location is breathtaking and a beautiful backdrop for photos and again our guests were blown away. We wish we could do it all again next weekend. Richard and I give The Eccles Hotel and Spa 5 stars and more for the best day of our lives. Thank you!

We had our wedding reception at The Eccles Hotel in April 2022, everything about the hotel is fantastic - its location, character, charm, history, style, lovely staff and amazing food. We had to postpone our wedding during the pandemic, but Marie was very accommodating in securing a new date for us. The Yeats Suite is stunning, and we were lucky enough to stay there for 3 nights over the weekend of our wedding. We loved our wedding day, we both got ready at the hotel that morning which was very relaxing, the drinks reception & canapés went down a treat, the meal was beautiful, the staff were very accommodating and everyone had great craic!
