2 weeks for you without a deposit.
Q Can I bring in my own wine for tables?

option within the hotel. We do however have
excellent wines on offer at competitive prices.
You would be welcome to discuss any
options with us.
Q Can I have alcohol as my favours?
A Yes, many people like to have alcohol spirit
miniatures as favours, & would be welcome
to do this. We don’t however allow the mini
bottles of wine or prosecco.
Q Will someone dress my room for me
on the day?
A Yes of course, we love to dress our function
suite & make it special for our wedding couples.
We also realise that it’s one less thing for you to
worry about. We’ll meet you on the day before
& go over your setup requirements. You can rest
easy knowing that the room will be set up
beautifully, leaving you stress free & able to
relax & enjoy your big day with us.
Q Where can we have our Photos taken?
A We have our stunning, recently refurbished
honeymoon suite, known as the Semple Suite,
an area outside with a beautiful Scottish
landscape backdrop, our wooden marquee,
the hotel entrance & by our warm open
fire place too.
Q Will there be another wedding taking place
in the hotel on my day?
A Absolutely not! We know your day is special
to you & your guests & as a result, we take
great pride in offering an exclusive experience
for our wedding couples. Only one wedding
takes place in our hotel per day. Your day will
be completely your own & the care & attention
given to you & your guests will not be shared
with another couple.
Q What if my numbers change after I book?
A We know it can be difficult to confirm the
numbers of people attending your big day but
it helps to confirm estimated numbers when
you book. We know numbers can change &
you are allowed a drop of 10% subject to
minimum numbers. These numbers can also
increase up to a maximum capacity of 80.
Q Can I add things into my package after I book?
A Yes of course. We know that planning a
wedding takes a lot of time & thought. You’ll be
adding lots of ideas & gaining inspiration as
you go along. Our friendly wedding
co-ordinator is always on hand throughout your
whole planning process to help you as well as
being able to provide you with any advice on
items you may wish to add for your big day.
This might include an LED dance floor or
backdrop for example.
Q Do I need to ask my guests for a pre-order?
A No. Just like being at a restaurant or any other
function, our excellent staff will attend each
table & take your guests’ orders on the day.
Q If I were to take a pre-order would this
bring my price down?
A No. In theory, this is a great idea, however in
practice we find that people either forget what
they have ordered or they change their minds
on the day. Taking people’s food orders can also
give you a lot more work when you’ve already
got lots to think about & organise. We like to
make everything as easy & as stress free as we
can for you. Let our staff take the strain for you.
Q Do my room rates include breakfast for
A Yes, as part of the experience we offer, all
our wedding room rates are inclusive of a
full Scottish breakfast for your guests.
