Staff so friendly, flexible and accommodating. The day was incredibly well organised and everything was done to make us and our guests feel welcome. Could not speak highly enough of the team at Castle Leslie. It would be great if the marquee was updated slightly as we spent quite a bit of money on decorating it and making it look at its best for the day. Overall an incredible experience and would highly recommend Castle Leslie, our day was absolutely magical.

Totally superb from start to finish. Planning was friendly and professional. We were there for a long weekend with Saturday wedding and Sunday BBQ. It was perfect - our guests were blown away by the friendliness of the staff, the superb food, gorgeous grounds and the efficiency and organisation. We can't recommend it enough!

Absolutely outstanding from start to finish. I honestly don't think another venue could come close. We arranged our wedding from Australia and had never even seen the venue until shortly before the wedding. Our mothers went to view Castle Leslie and were treated so well. They fell in love with the venue and got such a great feeling from the staff. Everything was easy throughout the 11 months (booked 11 months before wedding). We communicated through email mainly with some phone calls and they communicated very easily with our parents when they called up on our behalf. Our mothers were even invited for the Castle Open day so they could choose their bedrooms for the wedding. Everything was so easy on the run up to the wedding. On the wedding day Castle Leslie excelled. They went above and beyond. We could not have been treated better. Our guests loved every minute. Lots of guests said they felt like they were in a fairytale the whole day - absolutely everything was magical. We dealt with lots of staff who were all extremely friendly, pleasant and professional and we never felt like we were taking their time up - they were always on hand to help. Roisin was our co-ordinator and was absolutely fantastic. She's a lady and we felt blessed to have her. John looked after us on the wedding day and was brilliant. He made sure everything ran to schedule and we didn't have to worry about 1 thing. Honestly, if you are considering having your wedding at Castle Leslie, do it! You won't regret it.

The staff were excellent without exception totally professional. John the Manager could not do enough for us as all the other staff. The food was 100% absolutely very high quality and succulent to eat. The guests said that it was the best wedding they were ever at with the amount of attention to detail and the quality of the food. I would have to give Castle Leslie 100% all round.

From the first moment we stepped foot on the grounds of Castle Leslie Estate we knew we wanted to get married there. On our first meeting we met Karen who was very professional and made sure she worked with us in every way possible to make our wedding day complete. Once the contracts were signed we met with our wedding co-ordinator Deneise who guided us through the process right up until our wedding day. Any question we had Deneise was always on the other end of the phone or email to assist us in whatever it was! On the day itself we were overjoyed with the venue, food and staff. The staff in particular were superb with a special mention to John who looked after us from first thing that morning during our first look until just after dinner. His colleagues Johnathon and Owen were also fantastic throughout the day and night and on numerous visits to the estate during our engagement. Looking forward to returning to a trip to the Castle and hope we get invited to a wedding there ourselves in the future!

I felt very lucky to be able to have our wedding in such a beautiful authentic venue and in my own home town. The village/surrounds/gardens and castle itself are second to none. Having worked in a 5star hotel I really appreciated how professional the staff are in all roles and could see the hard work that went into everything. It is a shame that an anniversary stay is not included when they are a premium venue but not everywhere does. I also found them a little bit inflexible in some of the menus preparations if you want to change things but that doesn’t detract, my most frequent guest compliement was how good the food was. I would be confident to recommend to anyone looking for a premium venue.

Castle Leslie made the whole experience really easy and enjoyable. Could not praise the staff enough in the run up to the day and the day itself.

When we went looking for wedding venues initially, Csatle Leslie was the first place we viewed. We viewed one other hotel that we both always loved, but there was just something different about Castle Leslie. We wanted a winter wedding & the cosiness of the Castle with the fires lit & the fabulous decor just wowed us. We also did not want a 'function room' wedding, so the Pavillion gave us the perfect blank canvas to work on to create the wedding of our dreams. From the first meeting with Deneise, she could not have been more helpful in anything that we wanted or any random queries we had. When it came to the day of the wedding & setting up etc, the amazing John took over John looked after us all day making sure we wanted for nothing. I had alot of very specific ideas about the way I wanted everything set up & the team at Castle Leslie done this to perfection. From the minute we arrived at Castle Leslie to the minute we left we were completely spoiled. Everyone commented on the service they received, how personal it was & how they wanted for nothing. The food was out of this world - we had big numbers of approx 250, but every single meal was served to the same high standard. We held the day after in The Oriel Room also, and the outstanding service didn't end on just the wedding day - we were so well looked after & a special mention must also go to to Jonathan for everything over the few days. We couldn't recommend Castle Leslie enough, it is definitely worth every penny & we can't wait to visit again & again! Thank you Deneise, John, Jonathan & all the team!

Selecting Castle Leslie was, without a doubt, our best wedding decision! After visiting the estate, meeting with the incredible staff and reading rave reviews all over the internet, we were excited about selecting Castle Leslie as our wedding venue - but also had very high expectations. We were in contact with Deneise, our fabulous wedding co-ordinator, almost daily and discussed every last detail with her. We thought it would be impossible for them to keep track of all of the small customisations that we were requesting, especially since they have 4-5 weddings per week during the summer months. They not only met our high expectations, but exceeded them with class and elegance. The estate's florist also did a fantastic job with our floral arrangements. The food and drinks were top notch and the service was unlike anything we had experienced before. The Estate is the perfect location for an intimate and exclusive wedding experience with the ability to cater to a large number of guests with a variety of beautiful accommodations. They simply exceeded our expectations in every way and there is NOTHING that they could have done better!

My dream wedding was exactly that at Castle Leslie. From the management to the gardener 100% is given to you at all times. We went up to the venue numerous times alone and with family, we were always greeted by name even when we turned up unannounced that is how great their attention to detail is. On the day of our wedding we were treated like royalty especially by John the manager, he was on hand and by our side at all times gathering family members together for photographs, making sure we had drinks and food, he even carried around my bag. The catering staff were so efficient and professional. My uncle took sick at the dinner table during the meal and within minutes he was whisked outside an ambulance was on its way and the first aider on site was by his side. unless you saw it happening you wouldn't have know anything was going on as they were so on the ball. If you are looking for a castle wedding with a personal touch look no further. A special thank you to Helen, Deneise, John and of course Jack for making our wedding day so special for ourselves and our guests kind regards Keith and Gillian McDermott

We are so very grateful for a wonderful wedding reception last week in your Estate. We would like to express our sincere thanks to the following people in particular Deneise for her polite and professional manner at all times in engaging with us in advance of our wedding, for the careful planning, thought provoking questions and the numerous and regular emails and phone calls. Kevin for the very warm reception, the delicious meal and the high standard of service in the Pavilion. Cathy and Jovita who were extremely efficient and patient in the weeks leading up to the event handling all the accommodation details. A number of our guests have subsequently approached us to compliment us on our choice of Castle Leslie for our wedding reception. The standard of service throughout our stay in Castle Leslie was exemplary,but much more than that, the care and the kindness shown to each and every one of our guests was very special indeed. We appreciate in particular the care shown to our older and less mobile guests. Wishing Castle Leslie nothing but the very best for 2013 and beyond. We look forward to returning very soon."

"We can honestly say that there is nothing your staff could have done to make it any better!! We thought everything was fantastic, from the rooms, to the food, to the excellent service received from ALL the staff, we could not have asked for anything more. Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to all involved and we will look forward to seeing you again in the near future."

"We had an absolutely fantastic time from start to finish. The main reason for this, aside from the surroundings, was the ease of manner and professionalism of the staff. They really were a credit to the management in each station - from reception to bar and from floor to night porter. Many, many thanks."
