Absolutely no professionalism from these people. The venue itself is gorgeous but would never recommend paying these big bucks purely for their service, or lack thereof. Absolutely disgusting woman we had to deal with. Never again.

We love lairmont manor! Wonderful people and the location is divine. A few hiccups such as the old venue coordinator didn't put our date down. Then they forgot about our last walk through and even though they told us we can have a pet on the grounds my maid of honor was scolded by another employee for having her dog there. Still our wedding wad beautiful and we had a great time.

The grounds and building are beautiful, but the service provided to my fiancee and myself was incredibly unprofessional. Their price-spinning bordered on fraudulent. We took our business elsewhere.

- - - - -

Two and a half months ago, we went in to the Lairmont Manor to look at it as a potential wedding destination. We spoke with the events coordinator, verbally reserved a date, and were quoted a price ($2295) and given a rate sheet of current pricing.

Throughout the following four weeks, we were in consistent contact with the events coordinator at the Manor. After finally deciding on caterers and photographers, we confirmed our decision to book the venue. My fiancee and I spoke with my fiancee's parents, who agreed that the venue was beautiful and looked to be ideal. We phoned back to the Manor to arrange a meeting at the venue in a week with her parents so that we could show them the venue and book our reservation.

The coordinator at the Lairmont confirmed our meeting time and asked to re-send the current pricing plan to us via email. This should have set off a warning bell, but we were blindsided when we opened the email to find that the Lairmont Manor's pricing had jumped by $1700 - we were now being charged $3995, when we had originally been told that the fee was $2295. Further, the booking fee, which had originally been $1000, had been doubled.

We immediately contacted the event coordinator to request that they honour the original pricing that we were quoted, especially since we had been given no notice of the price change and had worked our wedding budget around the original price we were given. The events coordinator responded by telling us that "prices are subject to change."

I then phoned the events coordinator and requested that she honour our original quoted price. She told me that she would have to speak with the building's owner and would call me back the next day. I didn't hear back from her, so I tried three times to phone back during the next two days. Each time, the phone just rang - nobody picked up.

Three weeks later, the events coordinator finally emailed us and said that we had to pay the new pricing if we wanted the venue. When I emailed her back and asked her why it had taken her so long to get back to us, she said that she had been too busy with end-of-season wedding business.

Very dissatisfied with the unprofessional, uncourteous, and impersonable experience we had in our dealings with the Lairmont Manor. What should have been a happy time of planning our wedding turned into a stress-filled mess.

Our business has been taken elsewhere.

Lairmont was the perfect place for our wedding. We had wanted an outside wedding but had it inside instead because it was raining. The ballroom is gorgeous and does not need much decorating and adds a elegant and romantic feeling to your wedding. The staff were very helpful and offered advice and sugjestions when needed. Having both the wedding and reception at the same place definitly helped with our budget and the transformation between the the two was very quick.

Although we absolutely loved the Lairmont Manor because of its beauty and atmosphere, the staff was a bit difficult to work with. They have a restrictions, particularly about noise. I would actually recommend it to anyone because it is such a beautiful location to be married, but make sure you know what you want up front and ask if everything can be done. We made the mistake of picking the location, then asking questions later.
