At Comlongon we are so sure that you have found your venue of choice we are prepared to offer you the opportunity to sample what we have to offer free of charge. Once you consider Comlongon as a possible choice we invite to stay with us, sample our food, have a few drinks and talk to staff.

 This will allow you to see what we do and provide whilst in a relaxed atmosphere rather than rushing to an appointment, talking to a co-ordinator then leaving...and remembering 20 minutes later the 5 questions you forgot to ask!

candlelit dining room Its a simple offer; stay with us as our guests, see what can provide and then see if we really are your venue of choice.

 How this works. Book a stay, sample our facilities, pay the bill upon departure the next day. Once you eventually book your wedding with us we will refund the cost of accommodation with us against your eventual wedding invoice. Obviously we cannot refund food and drinks as we would be swamped with potential bookings!

We are so confident that we will provide you the dream booking you desire we will stake our reputation..and money on this. Come and see us to find out why 95% of our bookings are through personal recommendations.
