  • We recently had our wedding in the Hamlet Court Hotel and it was amazing. From day 1 when we went to view the hotel, the reception from the staff was second to none. Throughout the whole planning, everybody at the Hamlet was so nice and accomodating and couldn't do enough for us. The day itself went so well, without a hitch. Every last detail was exactly as we had asked for it to be - John, Mo, Michelle, Trish and all the gang down there really are the best at what they do. Our guests were so impressed with the whole set up and are still raving about the place and the people.

  • Contents of my email to the Hotel 8/7/2022 as follows:-
    Dear Manager,
    I write to thank you, the O’Neill family, and all the people who work in your hotel, particularly those who attended service, at reception, in the dining room and in the bar, for the wonderful experience in kindness, care and competence, at the Wedding of Bride and Groom yesterday. It is a rare occasion I have taken this trouble to communicate in this way.
    The meal and the service yesterday were excellent. We have been at many weddings in many highly rated hotels in the past forty years and as in most company there are among us, serial critics. I have to say I could hear only positive compliments from all including the most experienced and harshest critics in my company. I have always believed that a successful business displays a high standard, in the essence of good management, evidenced by an ethos “care” for the customer, exercised in practice through every member of staff.
    Despite the difficulties I created with bookings and at the dining table I was impressed at the sensible, flexible, professional, respectful, cheerful, patient, and courteous manner my needs were serviced. In post mortem conversations with others who attended I heard the same compliments without any person being prejudiced hearing my views beforehand.
    I also believe that the most effective marketing, in quality and cost, is from the personal witness of your customers (“word of mouth” in Cliché). Let me assure you I am one such satisfied customer.
    I hope that these compliments are communicated from the top to the bottom of the people in your organisation.
    All my best wishes for the future

  • Made our wedding day a dream come true. Myself and my husband had our wedding reception in the Hamlet Court on 16th July 2008. We have had many more occasions there after Communions, Christenings. I couldnt speak highly enough of the O'Neill group. They work so hard to make sure every thing is as you want it. My wedding day was a dream come true and everyone complimented the hotel after the food was fantastic second to none. Silver service and all the little extras included made it all the more special. The Hamlet cater for weddings nearly every day. But every wedding is treated like a one off and they try so hard to make it a special and memorable day and it sure was for me. If anyone is looking for a Hotel for their wedding well you cant go wrong with The Hamlet. I will sure be back there for any more family occassions we have anyway. EXCELLENT

  • Perfect, you won't find better!! We got married on the Hamlet Court on January 1st...I cannot begin to describe all the wonderful ways that everyone at the hotel made our day amazingly perfect. Everyone enjoyed themselves, had plenty of delicious food, and had a great night's sleep..some well into the next afternoon! We have been back to the hotel ourselves a number of times and sent my parents there for their wedding anniversary were again they were treated excellently. I cannot thank the staff enough for everything they did for us and we will be returning there for many years to come.

  • It was like staying in someone's home!. We stayed in the Hamlet Court for one night as we were attending a function at the hotel. The hotel looks more like a pub from the outside but we were pleasantly surprised inside. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was nice and spacious and airey and well laid out. The food was also excellent. To be recommended.

  • Wonderful Wedding Venu. Stayed at this hotel recently for a family wedding and have to say the service was fantastic, all of the staff with the exception of one were courteous, exceptionally friendly and helpful and really made the night one to remember.

    The size was perfect for accommodating a full wedding party with extended family and the rooms were of an excellent standard, large and spacious and immaculately clean. The quality of the meal served and also the breakfast in the restaurant the following morning were fantastic and serving staff were extraordinarily efficient.

    Overall I had an excellent experience in this hotel and recommend it as a great place to have your wedding reception.

    My one criticism would be a very thoughtless and rude comment made (I think by accident but rude nonetheless) by a senior staff member to my face which was not picked up on despite the shocked reaction of those present. Despite also mentioning this on my comment card I've had no apology or acknowledgement of the incident which I find quite disappointing.

  • It's difficult to express how delighted we are that we chose the Hamlet Court as the location for our wedding reception. From the moment we first walked in to view the hotel until the day after the reception we could not have asked for better or more friendly service. John, Trish and every member of staff made the whole day alot less stressful than it might have been and we can not compliment them highly enough. So many of our guests passed favourable comments and we didn't hear a bad word said. The food served was equally fantastic.
    Highly, highly recommended.

To all you brides to be - you won't get better than this.

  • We looked around for ages for a hotel with that 'wow' factor and I was starting to get really upset because all the places that we saw just weren't up to scratch. Then we went to see the Hamlet Court. From the moment I walked into the reception room, I knew it was the perfect location. The room is fabulous, the staff (especially Mo who dealt with us on the day) were amazingly helpful. We haven't had our reception yet but we are delighted to have found this gorgeous hotel.
