The first time we visited the hotel we were so impressed with the setting and the welcoming atmosphere of the hotel.  Everyone has gone the extra mile for us from making sure the food was just right to making all our guests comfortable too.  It was the little things which really made a difference too from all the personalised emails (Michelle we felt you were genuinely excited for us) and Sandra phoning on the wedding morning to make sure I had some breakfast.  Karen it was reassuring that both you and Arik were there for the day to make sure everything went so well.  We really did feel as though it was our home for the day. Thanks for giving us a day we will never forget, if we could do it all again we'd still choose Macdonald Leeming House.

From the start when we were shown around the hotel, the correspondence in connection with the wedding to the big day itself, we received excellent service from all of the hotel staff. The hotel is set in a beautiful location with a high standard of bedrooms, restaurant and function rooms. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff were a pleasure to deal with. We highly recommend this hotel for a wedding, any gathering and as a place to stay.

To say our day was special is an understatement. The setting is idyllic and tranquil and the staff at Macdonald Leeming House ensured our day went flawlessly. My guests were impressed with the service and attention by the staff and the meal was cooked and served to perfection.

We remember feeling uninspired with the venues we had been to visit, but that all changed when we came to Macdonald Leeming House. Immediately all our questions were answered and we were struck by the freedom of choice we had. There was no "we can't do that" but more " what would you like" and we will never forget that.

Walking down the aisle in that beautiful room in that beautiful setting.........unforgettable, it really was.

We have had really good feedback from the guests who are still going on about it now and many of them have said it was the best wedding they had ever been to with some of them adding "including their own". Much of this is down to yourself Karen and the staff at Macdonald Leeming House who made them all feel welcome and gave them great food and service. The location and views also contributed and many of them are vowing to return and have a better look around the area.

From the sun rising surprisingly over the hillside on the morning of our wedding day, to the spectacular fireworks set against the Ullswater night sky, what an amazing day we had.  Macdonald Leeming House, both venue and personnel, surpassed all our expectations for a truly memorable day in such idyllic surroundings. The day could only last 24 hours but we will cherish the memories forever.
