Austin & Lisa Maguire

April 2016

I'd like to say that we had, undoubtedly, the very best time of our lives on that day and it was largely due to the incredible service we have received from the staff at the hotel.

I know I speak for both my wife and I when I thank the staff from MacDonald Houstoun House from the very bottom of our hearts and cannot wait to return to celebrate our anniversary in the beautiful hotel and reminiscing over all the amazing memories we have.

The day itself couldn't have been better - it all went so smoothly and everyone had a wonderful experience from the little flower girls to the oldest guest. I had been a bit anxious that the day would not be as good as my son's wedding in April which was fantastic. But in fact Fiona's day was every bit as good and the fact that the days were different in several ways was a positive factor.

October 2015

I actually don't know where to begin and how to put into words what a fantastic day both Darren and I had on Saturday. From start to finish the whole day was truly amazing and our feet are sore from dancing and our faces from smiling, which can only be a good sign. 

From the moment we visited Macdonald Houstoun House back in April, we knew it was where we wanted to have our wedding. The venue is beautiful but the staff and the way you treated us was what made it for us, you create an atmosphere where everyone feels special and that nothing is too much trouble.

Everything went like clockwork and we both thoroughly enjoyed the day. We've had loads of compliments on the food served, how nice the rooms were, the flow of the day and the surroundings. The young staff who served dinner and were around for most of the night were brilliant - very discreet, quick and kept the wine flowing at just the right speed for our guests. Please can you pass on our thanks to them.  

Breakfast in the morning was well organised, great quality and our guests really liked the set up and it let us spend more time with our guests.

It was just a fabulous experience with Macdonald Houstoun House. I wish I could do it all again!

I had a simply wonderful day made all the more special by the hotel and staff. I cannot thank them enough for everything they did for us to make the day as smooth and fun as it was. Marcelle and Catherine the wedding co-ordinators were amazing at introducing us to the hotel and undertaking all tasks asked of them over the two years planning our wedding.  We were always greeted with warmth and the actual day was no different. Every guest commented on how friendly all the staff were and Gianni was a gentleman making sure I was calm and knew what was going on at all times.  The Quality of food was is superb. The chef is an absolute credit and the drinks were excellent. There was no food left…that said it all. The food and drinks were delivered quickly and with wonderful flare.

All the staff were extremely pleasant and attentive to detail, there was nothing too much trouble. We booked our wedding function back In October 2014 and basically all we had to do was turn up on the day, everything was taken care of. I would especially like to mention our fabulous wedding co-ordinator Marcelle, such a pleasure and delight to work with and every request was met accordingly, we would also like to say a huge thank you to Operations Manager Marcin, he was in attendance throughout our wedding function and ensured every detail was to high standard. We were so fortunate to have our ceremony in their outstanding grounds which are maintained to perfection, the location is just ideal and amazing for photo opportunities, it was a true Fairytale dream wedding, we both couldn't be any happier or satisfied! Our reception room was beautifully prepared and meals were superb. And as for the Honeymoon Suite in Room 23, WOW!!!!!! It's one of the most beautiful and luxurious rooms we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. The giant bed was soooo comfortable and lush, I could go on and on and on!!!! From start to finish we received outstanding service.
