Customer testimonials

'We chose Saltcoats Town Hall because we just wanted something local, casual and informal. Staff were so friendly and helpful throughout the whole process. Guests still talk about how beautiful the venue was and the amazing food. Wish we could do it all again it just went by too quick.' - Emma and Jack

'My husband and I recently got married at Saltcoats Town Hall and what a fabulous day it was. We cannot thank the staff enough. They went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect and went without a hitch. The food was phenomenal and we still get amazing comments about the buffet. We couldn't recommend this venue enough for a wedding, especially regarding the value for money. Our day was just perfect and wish we could do it all again.' - Mr and Mrs Donaldson
