We held our reception at the Thistle East Midlands in August 2012. From the outset we dealt with Gemma. We found Gemma to be exceptionally helpful and accommodating and felt as though no matter how many times we called her to check our plans, we were never an inconvenience to her. She seemed genuinely interested and almost as excited as we were! On the day the reception was managed by Ashley. Again an exceptionally helpful member of the team at the Thistle. We had an oversight on our part with the menu choice for one of our guests. Ashley managed to sort this out for us immediately and this meant that the entire party dined together. In short, a fantastic venue with fantastic people, a superb menu and great accommodation. We would not hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone.
