I cannot recommend Sue and the team from Craig’s Royal Hotel enough. Sue was super helpful and always very quick to respond to emails and enquires leading up to our wedding. She was always friendly and nothing was too much trouble for her. She kept in touch with me in the lead up to the wedding particularly the weeks leading up to it and ensured that everything was perfect. The venue itself was spectacular and we got a lot of lovely photographs throughout the venue. Our guests loved the decor.

The rooms (Prince’s Room and Reading Room) and we had our ceremony and reception in were beautiful and set up how we requested. The staff were fantastic to work with. They answered and replied quickly to all our questions.

We would like to thank Sue Inglis and the Craig’s Royal Hotel for hosting our wedding for us. We are from Sydney and appreciated the attention to detail that Sue employed for us. She was very clear on the options offered to us for the actual day and gave us contacts for flowers and photography as we were from out of town. The wedding ran seamlessly and the room was perfect! We highly recommend the food served as well.. very delicious and presented attractively. We (Donna & David), would recommend this package to other couples, we’ll be back for an anniversary in the future!

We had a very small Wedding and that did not matter to the staff at Craigs. They treated us so well. The food was fantastic, nothing was a problem at all. We had our ceremony there as well and everything was done to exactly the way we wanted. We even had a cake disaster but when I called and explained what had happened, straight away they had a solution. The honeymoon suite was amazing and then we had breakfast in the morning g with our guests. Thank so much to the staff, you made our day extra special.
