We just wanted to let you know what a fantastic night we had on Friday. We had a ball!  The wigwams were so much fun, and your staff were so accommodating!  

We would personally like to thank Nikki, who did a tremendous job with organizing our party, the room blew me away! All the bar staff that night were fantastic.  Also Jenni who organized a lot of us to do the zip slide on Saturday, she was also brilliant.  You can see that you've got great staff, who love their job!!.  We met so many of your staff over the weekend, they are a credit, and very friendly."

Thank you for helping us celebrate our 20th anniversary, and making it one to remember!
