On our travels again, this week’s blog is about the fantastic Best Western Eglinton Arms Hotel. Situated south of Glasgow in the picturesque village of Eaglesham this is a venue that we love visiting.
Best Western Eglinton Arms Hotel dates back to the 18th century and is an old coaching inn. While maintaining a traditional Scottish feel, it is contemporary but still features stunning fire places. With it’s own private banqueting suite and bar for wedding couples, this hotel is perfect for couples wanting exclusive use.
Ceremonies can take place in the Earl’s Hall Ceremony room with up to 80 guests being catered for. The banqueting suite can easily accommodate small or large weddings with a maximum number of 120.
Gordy is a DJ loves the warm reception it receives from all of the venue’s staff. Nothing is ever too much trouble. When phoning in advance to discuss the couple’s exact requirements, Carolyn is magnificent at answering all of our questions. Knowing that the wedding suppliers are being looked after as much as the wedding couple ensures everything runs smoothly on the day and highlights the professionalism and high level of customer service this hotel offers.
Access to the banqueting suite from a supplier’s point of view is extremely easy and hassle free! Suppliers can park outside, walk through one external door into a hallway where equipment can be placed before the double doors open into the function room. The staff keep us regularly up-to-date with timings of the day – much appreciated!
We had the pleasure of providing the entertainment and mood lighting for Mrs and Mrs Hinshelwood. This lovely couple were so pleased with their venue and everything went to plan – their guests were a pleasure to work with and had many music requests which kept us busy!
The staff member Hollie was our point of contact throughout the evening and she ensured that we had everything we needed and kept us informed of the order of the evening. Thank you Hollie for making our job so much easier!!
With 34 bedrooms available, wedding guests don’t have far to travel to their rooms when the wedding reception has come to an end!!
We cannot end our blog without putting up a video of the Boyle wedding! Even though this video was taken in 2016, it shows just how much fun a wedding reception can be at this fantastic venue.
