Very friendly team that gave a great service and always available when needed
Absolutely amazing venue and Katie, the wedding and events coordinator, couldn’t have done more to make sure that we were happy and that the day ran smoothly. We would definitely recommend EGH and the team to anyone wanting a stress free and memorable day!
Absolutely beautiful venue. Great central Manchester location. Perfect for our wedding party of 35. The booking process was easy, we had a lovely guided tour by Ellen and she was very reassuring.
The venue was the most perfect atmosphere! The staff were accommodating and extremely friendly, which made the day even more perfect. Katie the manager was amazing with communication and helped us any way she could. Everything exceeded expectations.
