Hi Valerie, James and I want to thank you and all the amazing staff at the Hardiman Hotel for our amazing day. Especially Sonia and Stephen and yourself. The day genuinely could not have been more perfect! Everybody was raving about how exceptionally beautiful the hotel is and how lovely the staff were to each and every one of our guests. The food was incredibly delicious - Ultan is a food wizard!! The day ran so smoothly (not that I had any doubts) but having never been at a wedding in the Hardiman before I didn't realise how attentive all the staff are to all the guests. It was superb from start to finish!! We had the most amazing day and we are so thrilled we decided to chose the Hardiman and that we had all of you amazing people looking after us. Thanks a million for everything ? Louise &James x

Hi Valerie, We both want to thank you for your outstanding service to us during the wedding and in the lead up to it. The Meyrick in general was wonderful but you really are one in a million Valerie and such a beautiful person to deal with as well. You went above and beyond and were so approachable and helpful. It really means so much to us. Like that I miss popping in and the chats. We really had a fairy tale wedding, thank you so much for helping make that happen. I will be spreading the word far and wide about the wonderful service you delivered. Chat soon Elaine

Dear the staff of Hotel Meyrick, We cannot believe it is now a month since we got married. We would both like to express our thanks for the wonderful day you put on for our wedding day. Valerie, you were absolutely amazing. We were delighted with you the first day we met you. You put our minds at ease and you were wonderful at talking us through the day and for thinking of all the small bits and extra bits that would make the day that extra bit special for us. Your communication was excellent with us and you were always so quick at responding to us and we knew you were always at the other end of the phone if we needed you. Although, we only met you a few times, we felt we had known you much longer. You always had a smile on your face and always made us feel very welcome. I can say, without any doubt that any couple would be safe in your hands and they would be extremely lucky to have you involved in the planning of their wedding... You are an amazing Wedding Coordinator. Patrick, thank you very much for making us feel so at ease in the last few weeks in the lead up to our wedding. It was lovely to meet both Valerie and yourself before the big day to talk through the day. It was great to be greeted by such a friendly face when we pulled up to the hotel on our wedding day. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to chat to you much on the day but I could see you were so attentive to everyone. You told me you would make sure everything ran smoothly and it certainly did. Ultan, the amazing chef. We absolutely loved everything we tried at our tasting so you really made the menu choice a tough one. We were 100% confident about our meal going into the wedding and this meant so much to us as it was so important for us to have a great meal. The food was 5 star. Each meal was presented beautifully and tasted even better. We were so happy knowing you were in the background. We greatly appreciated the efforts you went to for all of the coeliac guests. Thank you for the chats we had and for reassuring us all would be ok on the day. Stephen, you were fantastic. The ballroom looked absolutely beautiful. You were so attentive on the evening of our wedding and constantly checked in with us at the top table to ensure everything was ok. The service was top class; so quick, so smooth and all of the waiters were so professional yet friendly. Your attention continued over the weekend to our final departure on the Monday morning. Mary, you put definitely put in a late night shift and were kept on your toes all night. But you did every minute of it with a smile on your face. You had the bar running very smoothly upstairs and we have had many compliments about you in the residents bar. The tea you served to those who didn’t even ask was a HUGE hit and the gluten free sandwiches you made was very thoughtful of you. Thank you also for the lovely sandwiches for the other guests at the end of the night. Sonja, you were so friendly to all of the guests and family from the moment I stepped out of the bridal car and we all really enjoyed the chats with you over the weekend. We hope to meet you again sometime in Invern. To all the staff from every department who helped to make our day special and who assisted in the day running so smoothly, we are extremely thankful. The Meyrick was an amazing venue to have our wedding in and it is a day we will always cherish. All of your staff were fantastic and this made our day. I would highly recommend the Meyrick to any couple looking for a wedding venue. We look forward to popping in again soon. Man thanks, Claire and Pádraic Mac Giolla Bhríde 26th October 2019

Hi Margaret, I hope all is well! Phil and I just wanted to send through a quick email now that everything has calmed down a bit to say thank you so very much Margaret, you were amazing to deal with, our day could not have went so smoothly without you and all of your hard work. I can’t put into words how much we appreciate everything you did for us. We are over the moon with how the day went. Everything went off without a hitch and we had the best day of our lives! From the moment we decided that the hotel Meyrick was where we wanted to get married, to the planning thereafter, to our wedding day and the days that followed, everyone in the hotel went above and beyond for us, nothing was too difficult. We received so many compliments from our guests on the decor of the hotel, the food and the staff on their outstanding customer service. Special mention to Conor, Ethan, Paul, Valerie and Steven. Thank you so very much, Galway and the hotel Meyrick will always have a special place in our hearts. All the best, Kym & Phil Butler x
