Customer Testimonials

“We needed a good venue for family, friends and colleagues of my late father to meet after his funeral at Glynn Valley Crematorium. We could not have been looked after better by Annie and the staff at Lanhydrock. Nothing was too much trouble to arrange, whether it was changing numbers, arranging for a string quartet to play, or having flowers and photographs put up for people to look at. Everything was done with the minimum of fuss and ready for when we arrived. The food was outstanding. Many people commented on how generous the quantities were, and just the right sort of food for this occasion. It was also convenient to have the bar next door, so that anyone who didn’t want the tea and coffee served as we arrived, was able to organise their own drinks. Of course, the views were outstanding. All in all – I would wholeheartedly recommend this venue for anyone. In our case, following a family funeral, it was exactly what we needed. 110% approval from us all. We will be coming back to try the venue as a restaurant……”
