    Wonderful, beautiful, no worries.

    From the first moment we stepped into the office we knew that Terry and Nicola would take care of us. Having booked our wedding for October 2020 back in October 2019, we did not know we would soon be entering into a pandemic and all the drama that would come with it. However, we managed to get almost all venue needs done with their help by February, and remained in touch during the ins and outs of restrictions, updates, government changes, and options. The wedding day came and went without a hitch (well one, us getting hitched). Everyone couldn't believe how beautiful it was, how safe they felt, and how good the food was. 99% of it was arranged directly by C Hotel. With the added benefit of our out of town guests feeling safe and secure while staying at the hotel, they felt they could safely maintain their COVID bubble even while enjoying the hotel's amenities. I can never thank C Hotel and their team enough for everything they did for our special day.

    Beyond impressed

    This vendor is a hotel that specializes in weddings, they have all inclusive packages that include everything from linens, a DJ right down to the cake. Their prices are the cheapest I’ve seen anywhere in years. We chose a package that included open bar for 8 hours as well as our meal which was absolutely delicious and all prepared fresh in house from their restaurant located inside the hotel. We also had our wedding cake included in our package, it was 3 separate tiers which Allowed us customize it and have each tier with a different flavour (vanilla, chocolate and lemon) the lighting was customized to match our colour scheme and they did also include The use of centre pieces. Not only were they attentive from the planning all the way up to the end of the wedding night but we opted to not use their DJ service and have a friend dj night our wedding as we wanted to be really different and have both dancing and karaoke at our wedding, sadly 1.5 days before our wedding day our guy bailed on us without any warning or valid reason....our coordinator Nicola found us a DJ. Our wedding ended up exceeding our expectations by a landslide and given the chance to do it again I would not change a thing (except hiring our own DJ) we did a 50s Grease theme so we used vinyl records as our charger plates but the venue does include charger plates in their packages

    An amazing wedding day.

    We had an amazing wedding day at the C hotel! We chose the C hotel as their packages were very inclusive and at a great price. The staff were fabulous and were able to accommodate our wedding reception indoors as the weather had changed to a wind storm within the last hour or two before the ceremony. We really appreciated this. Our guests had nothing but positive things to say about the beautiful reception area and food. It was very convenient to be able to stay at the hotel the night before and of the wedding. Our guests from out of town loved this option as well. We were so happy we chose the C hotel. There are options close by for taking photos, our favourite spot was actually the field by the bridge across the street.
