Testimonials

Perfect in every way
So sorry you didn't get the first card we sent. You all provided us with a day that was so perfect in every way. We had so many compliments about you and the venue. The way you hosted the whole day was nothing but perfect.

We even had comments that our wedding was the best they have ever been to, that was down to you and your staff.

The way you controlled and guided our Wedding day was just brilliant, we don't think there are many places you can go to where the food and staff are perfect, you are all in a league of your own.

Just Brilliant, THANK YOU!

Sue & Andy, we had the best day anyone could wish for.


Superb quality of the food

Just to say thank you so much for a wonderful day on 13th July at Tifaine & Adam's Wedding.

Everyone was so impressed by the beautiful venue, the superb quality of the food, the great attention to detail and the unobtrusive, yet helpful staff.

We were able to relax & thoroughly enjoy the occasion, confident that everything would go well.

Many thanks for all your hard work.

Steve & Liz (Mum & Dad of the Bride)


Remarkable James!

Words cannot say how happy we were with our wedding at The Mansion. Your kindness and flexibility from start to finish was remarkable James.

A big thank you to all the staff.

Love from Tom & Gina Melling
 

A Beautiful venue...
Michael was extremely welcoming and helpful throughout the process.  We had every confidence in his abilities from when we first met him.  He was professional, and answered every question we gave him with attention to detail.  This, set the Mansion apart from other venues that we visited.  He led his team throughout the day with efficiency.  All staff were smartly dressed and welcoming to all the guests.

A Beautiful venue with “wow” factor.  All guests commented on how beautiful it was especially the stairs and chandeliers.

The Food was lovely.  Had many guests comment upon this. We had the goats cheese tart, pork and chocolate pudding. Evening food was bacon/sausage sandwiches.  These were delicious.

Blown away
...
I would just like to extend my sincere thanks for the service and hospitality provided by The Mansion on the occasion of my son's wedding on Easter Sunday.

I am a person of high standards and I was blown away by the efficiency of The Mansion from the moment we stepped through the door.  James and Michael were superb as were all the staff - without exception and the food was 'to die for'.

Every little detail was seen to and the etiquette of the day was stunning. It may have escaped some people's notice but it most certainly did not escape mine.  Both myself and my husband were extremely impressed and hope to return to The Mansion at some time in the future.

Please pass on our thanks to all involved in the day.

Smooth and Effortless
Dear Michael, 

We would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to you and your team at The Mansion for such an amazing day last Sunday, our daughter's wedding day.

Planning a wedding is not easy, especially when the bride and groom live in another country, that was never a problem for you. Everything fell in to place and the day was relaxed, smooth and effortless. 

The food and service was excellent, the attention to detail (including the colour co-ordinated wine bottle necks!) second to none. 

The Mansion and Park are a very beautiful setting for a wedding, we would reccommend it to everyone. Vicki & Alex had a perfect day, one we will remember for a long time to come. 

With our best wishes 

Dot &Dave


A massive thank you..
Michael, Just a short note to say a massive thank you to you, James & the rest of the staff at the Mansion for making our special day even better than we thought possible!!

Throughout the planning process you were without doubt the most professional team I have ever worked with & your attention to detail is without equal (well, maybe only with me!!). The food was exquisite & exactly how it was on the tasting, how your chefs managed to get the same quality to our 120 guests staggers me, even as an ex chef.

You guys were the most gracious of hosts & nothing was ever to much trouble; if it was, you hid it well!

Finally to all the waiting staff - to unsung heroes as far as we are concerned, they all did a fantastic job & were pleasant throughout a long day & always had a smile on their faces.

Rachel & I were set-a-sail on our journey through married life at the best location possible & 3 and a half weeks in all is well!

Great Job, thanks again & have a lovely weekend.

Kind regards,
Russell & Rachel Halter

The table looked stunning.

So James, thank you again for all your hard work.

We felt on top of the world..

Dear Michael and Team, we just wanted to say thank you for making our day a truly magical, beautiful and very personal one. The service you gave us was wonderful as was the meal and we felt on top of the world.

Everyone has commented to us that they thought the venue and staff were wonderful and so congratulations to you all. I appreciate how long a day it is when you have a wedding and everyone was still smiling and attentive throughout- you made us all feel very welcome.

Next time we are up at the park I'll pop in and share some pickies!

Thank you again from us both.

Best wishes, Jo and Malcolm


We will never forget our special day!
We would like to feedback to you about our wedding day at The Mansion on May 20th. Michael was our coordinator, and both he and all the team provided a wonderful service. We could not fault anything, every part of the day went as smoothly as we could ever have hoped for. It was particularly noticeable how many of our guests complimented the venue and the staff on their level of service and helpfulness, as well as the quality of the food and drink. These were the reasons that we chose The Mansion and you certainly exceeded our expectations!

We would particularly like to compliment Michael who was friendly, professional and whose calming influence and keen attention to detail really made our wedding planning much less stressful and our Wedding Day truly memorable.

Thank you again to all your staff, we will never forget our special day!

All the best

Jo and Dan Beral,


I couldn’t have done it without you!
I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say a massive thank you to you and your team for all your hard work and professionalism on our wedding day. I will of course drop you a “proper” thank you card once the photos are back and they are printed.

We had a wonderful day and enjoyed every second of it. We have had nothing but fantastic compliments from all our guests about how wonderful The Mansion, food, service etc was, even from our most picky guests which is not mean feast I can assure you!

Thank you also, for making the build up so stress free, I was saying to my friends the other day how I didn’t manage to find anything which you didn’t reply, “no we can do that Vickie, its not a problem.”, I couldn’t have done it without you!

Kind Regards,

Vickie, Ben and Georgia (the new Allen Family)


Fantastic Words
Just a Sincere Thank you for your team effort on making Stephy and Richys Wedding Day so special from the time we arrived at the Mansion to the departure, yourself and the team gave attentive and excellent service to us all.

The food was superb and the ambience of the venue was commented on by most of the guests. The feedback from guests saying they arrived knowing no one  and left knowing everyone. Fantastic words on such a special day. The weather did not deter us in any way, and with the extra surprises you helped me, with, added some extra hi lights to the day. It was a truly memorable, emotional, and indeed poignant day and one which will remain in all our hearts and memories forever.

Thank you for all your support and hard work, please convey these sentiments to everyone who assisted you.

Kindest Regards Cherie

Hello Michael,

An Excellent Experience
We recently held my husbands 40th birthday dinner party at The Mansion and I have to tell you that it was an excellent experience!
 
From the initial meeting with Jenni and Michael to discuss options, with the additional challenges of it being a surprise and Jon being a wine buff, through to the Tasting dinner and then the actual event were all conducted very professionally but also with warmth , personality and interest.
 
There was a definite ambition to make the event individual and special. The tasting dinner with James and Michael was a great evening with lots of debate and laughter!
 
Every one of our guests commented on the amazing location as well as the wonderful food , service and attention to detail.  I think you will be getting some new business from some of our guests and we would definitely use your company in the future .
 
I have worked in the retail industry for over 20 years and fully appreciate the challenges of a busy schedule as well as achieving this level of customer care.
 
You, as I am sure you know, have a team to be proud of!
  
Best Regards
 
Paula Wright

You truly are an angel!

We want to thank you for all your hard work towards our big day.  We really appreciate your input and the extra miles you’ve gone to to make sure everything ran smoothly.

You have made planning our Wedding so much easier and it has been a pleasure to work with you.  You truly are an angel!

A Big Thanks Again!
We would just like to say a big thank you for making our day so special, it was amazing and one of the best days of our lives, and one we will never forget.

All our guests commented on how lovely the venue was, and how welcome you and the staff made them feel.

A BIG THANKS AGAIN,

Daniel and Michael


Thank you, Thank you, Thank you

I’m writing to thank you both for our Wedding at The Mansion on Saturday 29th July – it was one of the best days of our lives!

Everything about the day – from the wonderful ceremony; the drinks on the terrace (with the seemingly endless jugs of Pimms); the sumptuous summer buffet (the beef was gorgeous) to the friendly and amazingly attentive staff – was delivered with incredible attention to detail and true professionalism.  A number of us joked about your earpieces making you resemble CIA secret agents but I can see why you wear them as everything appeared so effortless with everything always in the right place at the right time.

We’d also like to pay a big thank you to the bar staff, waitresses and head waiter for not only being great at their jobs but also being genuinely warm characters who made all of us (including the hordes of kids) feel really welcome an special.

Obviously with a venue as beautiful and well positioned as The Mansion we were expecting a memorable event but the high quality of service, food and friendly ambience ensured that the day truly exceeded our expectations.  Our only regret is that it’s over and we can’t do it all again….

Once again – on behalf of ourselves, our children, and our bowled over guests – thank you, thank you, thank you.

Mike and Paula


The Extra Mile

Dear Michael and James,

I am writing to thank you and your staff for making Claire and Andy’s wedding day so special.  They were married on 21st April, the Mansion proved an amazing venue and the beautiful weather meant that we could take full advantage of the facilities you have to offer.

Everything was just perfect, the food was delicious and the service was fantastic, you all went the extra mile to ensure that Claire, Andy and their family and friends had a day to remember.

Thank you and best wishes from the very proud and happy mother of the bride,

Jan Anderson

 

From the bottom of my heart, thank you
Hi Craig,

Off away now for a few days well earned rest.  Just wanted to say what a lovely day we all had including the bride who is the fussiest person in the world.  There wasn't a bad word said everyone complimented the food, the setting the decorations and of course the staff who served the food wonderfully, the weather was also was brilliant, did you order that too? 

All the traumas we had seem insignificant now as the day was perfect and in a lot of ways I'm pleased we had to change as I think the Mansion suited us better, it is a beautiful building which has been restored to a high standard and the staff are one of the good bits as they behave so well, not just professional but caring too.  So from the bottom of my heart thank you Craig, please pass my compliments on to James and his team, and feel assured I would not hesitate to recommend your services.

Hazel

Memorable 80th Birthday Party at The Mansion
You, James and all the staff at The Mansion want to be congratulated for the courteous and efficient way you looked after me for my 80th Party - from the reception, through to the delicious meal and the lovely setting and venue - thank you all so very much.

I'm not going to repeat all the complementary remarks my thank you letters contained as it would make you far too big headed! But my word, they were also very impressed...You certainly have lovely young, smiley waiting staff - well drilled too - please thank them and of course the magnificent Chef, the food was perfection; and I have eaten in some pretty fabulous places but yours was on an equal par.

Michael - thank you for such a memorable 80th Birthday.

Wonderful Wedding
Dear Sir,

I am writing to express my thanks and gratitude to all your staff who helped my daughter Jessica have such a wonderful wedding reception last Saturday.

The service was excellent throughout and I have received many complements from friends and family who attended for the event. In particular a number of my elderly relatives were very grateful for the kind and considerate way in which you staff dealt with their needs. All in all we had a wonderful time and one we will never forget thanks to the staff at The Mansion.

Kind Regards,

Shaun

Absolutely Faultless
Dear Michael and James,
 
Thank you so very very much for an absolutely amazing day yesterday.
 
From the very first time we looked around the Mansion to when we picked up all our 'lefts overs' this afternoon we knew we made the right decision in choosing the Mansion as our wedding venue. Michael, you have the ability to make us feel so special, like you only have our wedding to coordinate and think about, yet you provide such a slick service it is very clear to see that this is a very well polished routine!
 
We had so many comments from our guests over the day on the venue itself, the high quality food produced for so many people, and overall the service that you provided - it was all absolutely faultless. We knew from our previous meeting with you that it was going to be a great day, but it really went way beyond our already high expectations!
 
You have helped create so many very very happy memories of our wedding day, which we will always remember and reflect back on - we literally had the best day of our lives! So THANK YOU for absolutely everything.
 
With love,
Guv and Katie Sehmi

A beautiful setting
Dear Sir/Madam,

I just wanted to drop you a line to say a very big thank you for a fantastic day on 1st August when we dined with you for my brother in law's 40th birthday lunch. The food and service was first class.   

I was the lady with the food intolerances and I know how awkward if can be for a busy kitchen to deal with this but it was wonderful to be made to feel normal with a choice of lovely dishes. Please can you extend a big thank you from me to the chef - it really was appreciated.  I'd also like to say how great Jan was and the rest of the front of house staff.  The service couldn't be faulted and we felt very 'looked after.

You have a beautiful setting there in Roundhay Park, and the experience of the day was made all the better as a result of the great team you working for you, both front of house and in the kitchen.  Please can you pass on our thanks and kind wishes to your team.

Kindest regards,
Dr Julie Smith, County Durham

Wouldn't change a thing
Dearest Michael,

I rang you yesterday at The Mansion as we’d got back form mini-mooning in Wales and we wanted to speak with you, but as it was your well earned day off, you escaped us! Thinking about it though, I could probably do a better job of writing this as I would just end up making happy sighing noises down the phone which wouldn’t be as constructive.

I think I remember throwing my arms around you and asking whether I needed to tell you that I’d had the best day of my life, or whether you already knew from the ridiculous smile on my face… but what I really wanted to express is what an amazing job you and your team did, not only on the day, but everything you had involvement in. Every single guest commented on the quality of the food, the venue itself, the general flawless organisation of the day and it was all down to you and we can’t thank you enough.

I genuinely wouldn’t have changed a thing about our day and I bet most brides don’t say that… I know we’re the luckiest people in the world to have a day as perfect. James told me you were always one step ahead, in every part of the day, and I feel bad for being completely oblivious to it! But I guess that’s how it was supposed to be. I just hope we didn’t cause you too much trouble or work or grief, and that everyone was well behaved throughout the day?

I’ve already convinced James to have our 25 Wedding Anniversary at the Mansion and he’s already booked the band! (they were my other Hero’s of the night…awesome). We’ve got a little token for you to say a proper thank you so we’ll pop up with that at some point soon.

We’ll have 24/7 sketched in our hearts forever, not just because of the vows we made, but because it was the best day of our lives.

With Many Thanks and Endless Adoration!

Bethan and James Wilkin xx

Most impressive wedding venue
Dear Michael,

Fiona and I would like to put on record formally how delighted we were with the way you and your team handled the planning and execution of our wedding reception in November. I believe we were the seventh wedding after the completion of the renovation works, but at no point before or during the day did we sense any teething problems or inexperience in any of your team. I think that the most impressive aspect of the service you provided was your ability to do absolutely everything our way, and to fit all our requests into the venue and your handling of the day. Our guests frequently commented on how bespoke and tailored the day seemed to be, and on how impressively all the parts of the reception integrated together. Fiona and I were also extremely grateful for all the advice and recommendations you gave us as we were planning the day - at times it felt as though you were our wedding planner as well as the co-ordinator of the reception. We would like to express how amazing a job we think Dine has done with the renovations at The Mansion. You have created a modern and chic venue, while always remaining sympathetic to the character and needs of the building itself. The result is unquestionably the best-look and most impressive of all the wedding venues we looked at, whether in London or Yorkshire. We hope it came across on the day that Fiona and I had a wonderful time at our wedding, and everyone at the Mansion played a huge part in ensuring that it was such a success. We are hugely grateful to you all, and would not hesitate in recommending the Mansion to anyone planning a wedding or any other event.With very best wishes Tony

Extremely Impressed!
Dear Michael, Dan and everyone at Dine, Thank you all so much for everything you did to help us with the wedding preparations. It really was a beautiful day and everyone who came was extremely impressed by the Mansion. Best wishes Leila and Stuart

My mum had a wonderful time!
Dear Michael, Thank you once again to you and all your team for making our day so enjoyable last week. All of the guests were extremely complimentary, and most importantly, my mum had a wonderful time! Best wishes.

Amazing Experience!
Michael & Team, Thank you so much for making our Wedding such an amazing experience! Everything was fantastic - the venue, food, service and Bellini's! We have received such lovely comments from our guests saying how impressed they were, so please pass on this feedback to your team. The day ran so smoothly and Christian and I had such an amazing day, I don't think we stopped smiling. We hope you all had a great Christmas and we wish you a very happy New Year! Thanks once again.

Thank You
James, Michael & Richard, I just wanted to write and thank you all for your excellent service and your hard work. You made my day feel very special. The Food was beautiful and everything was perfect. It was exactly what I wanted and everyone who was there felt very spoilt! Thank you

Thank You
Michael, we just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for an amazing wedding at The Mansion. You Exceeded our expectations and so many people have commented how fantastic your team were, so attentive whilst creating a relaxed atmosphere, a difficult balance which they delivered effortlessly. It is lovely to say there is nothing we would have done differently. Please pass on our sincere thanks and appreciation to your team for all their hard work and for helping to make our day so special and memorable. Thank you so much Michael for your meticulous attention to detail. Wishing you and your team all the best for the year ahead!

Recommended
We wouldn't hesitate to recomend you. On the day the room looked perfect, the food was excellent and the staff were very polite and courteous. Many of our guests commented on the high standard of service you provided.

Perfect
Our Wedding Day was more than we could have ever dreamed of. The setting was stunning, the food outstanding and all the staff were so helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We can't recommend you highly enough!

Thank You
Thank you very much for a wonderful wedding day. The room and flowers were beautiful and the food excellent. Everybody had a wonderful time...thank you!

What a surprise!
We just had to write to say what a wonderful place and team you have here. We attended a wedding last week at the Mansion for the first time in many years and, I have to say, with some trepidation! We both remember the Mansion in years gone by, it used to be such a wonderful place but had become very tired and sad just recently. You must have worked so hard because it is hardly recognisable now, absolutely beautiful, just as it was always meant to be. On top of that the food and your waiting staff are so good and friendly too. We have both been to quite a number of weddings over the years and this certainly stood out for all the right reasons. With best wishes, Patricia and Keith Wood

What a star
Michael, Just a quick note to say thank you for making our wedding so perfect- we couldn't have done it without you! From the first meeting to the day itself you couldn't have been more helpful. It was so great knowing that we were dealing with the person who would be running our wedding on the day and would know exactly what we wanted. From the ceremony through the drinks reception and dinner, everything was perfect. Everything was absolutley faultless. Thanks again!
