Sarah Hardcastle - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Manchester
Everyone I spoke to at UK Girl Thing was really friendly, bubbly, helpful, knowledgeable and quick at replying to emails. It was a pleasure to book the hen party through this company. Great party planners, great customer service!
I think I speak for all the hens when I say the cocktail masterclass was the highlight. We had such a laugh from start to end. The cocktail master did a great job and we loved making our own cocktails. The value for money was brilliant - we were kept very well hydrated (and tipsy) with lots of cocktails and shots, and we couldn't believe how much party food we were served afterwards (but we still managed to eat it all and it was very tasty!).
The meal was delicious, and again, brilliant value and excellent service. We liked the fact that we were in our own little area and had balloons and confetti waiting for us on the tables. Entry into club was quick and easy, and it was great to jump the queue! We had a good dance in the club and enjoyed the variety of music in the different rooms.
Everyone had a fantastic time and the bride-to-be loved every minute. Payment before the event was simple and hassle free, the venues were excellent and the UK Girl Thing website was informative. Organising a hen do can be stressful, but everything on the night was stress-free.

Gosia Buszujew - Showgirls, After Dark & Pamper Me - Edinburgh
The girls were very helpful, very patient, answered all the questions and emails very quickly, they were also happy to answer questions of whomever contacted them and didn’t insist on talking with one nominated person, which speeded things up for us.
We Hotel we were staying in was right in the middle of the town, so it was close to everywhere we wanted to be. It had everything we needed and we were very pleased with it.
More than excellent!! It was fun, a good laugh, bringing everyone together. We are thinking about booking another dance class with them we enjoyed it so much. Our trainer was brilliant! It felt like she was part of the group and not at all like someone who only came to teach us a dance.
We had a lovely meal in the restaurant, it was delicious, the staff were very nice and tolerant. After that we got changed and hit the town. We didn’t make it all the way to City club, but we still enjoyed ourselves in other places and there was lots to choose from.
On Sunday we went to the SPA and as it turned out, our group was the only people who were in it at the time. It was very nice finish to our weekend, where we could relax after crazy night we had. Definitely worth having as it didn’t add much to the price, but definitely added a lot to our trip. Also we were very glad that our hotel, day and afternoon activities were all located in the same area (mostly on the same street even) which saved all the unnecessary traveling between places.

Karen Procek - Cocktail Making - VIP After Dark - Newcastle
We arrived at our hotel (Very central to Newcastle and an amazing place) on the Friday. After we checked into our really spacious rooms (I had been given an upgrade) we went out for some cocktails straight away. That evening we found a really nice Italian directly across the road from the back entrance of the hotel.
Saturday was cocktail making. Harvey was fantastic and could see I was a nervous bride. We sampled so many different types of cocktail. My sister (MOH) got very competitive and even made Harvey take a "chilli shot" when he couldn't pronounce a polish vodka name when she could. Nibbles were fab after all our hard work. We were all a bit sozzled to say the least. Went back to the hotel where some of us had a power nap before the big night ahead
Neon was our theme for the evening. everyone had chosen a colour of neon to wear (except pink) with black whereas I was in white and pink to stand out. Had a lovely 3 course meal before hitting the dance floor
We all had an amazing time in Newcastle and didn't want it to end. One very happy hen

Kirsty Dallaire - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Newcastle
I would just like to give a big thank you for making our weekend away so simple to organize
The Hotel was Brilliant, all of our 4 rooms were booked together which was useful as groups of girls are forever in and out speaking to each other. Easy check in, very busy but still managed to deal with everyone very quickly. Amazing Hangover breakfast served up until half 10 which is brilliant when you need to have a lie in.
Cocktail Making was a blast. Mark our cocktail master was so funny and really made our experience, brilliant value for money, everyone got a chance to get involved which was good. Funny games that got everyone laughing!
Best Weekend of my life – I think this was a general feeling from all 12 of the group. Newcastle is such a friendly welcoming place and we all just loved it. So much choice as to where to go in the evening and we did try a good number of pubs/clubs. Cocktail making was fantastic and would love to go and do it again sometime. We are all trying to get another friend to arrange their wedding now just so we have an excuse to go back for another weekend away :) UK Girl Thing took away all of the usual stress of organizing a weekend away with a large group (12), they organized all activities, meals, nightclubs which is useful when you are new to somewhere and haven’t been out before. Everything was so well planned out and I received a personal itinerary for the group, which was kept in my bag all weekend and had step by step plan of what we’re doing.

Emma Louise Humphreys - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Manchester
Brilliant, the amount of times I had to contact my Party Organiser because people were dropping out or we had to change plans nothing was a problem for her and she was a great help.
Although we couldn’t check-in until 2pm, we turned up to the hotel a few hours early to drop our bags and our rooms were ready, the staff there were friendly and overall the hotel was pretty good.
Cocktail making, was amazing all the girls wanted to make sure our feedback was passed onto the man who did ours he was really friendly and made it fun, we didn’t expect to have so much alcohol and we left a little drunk, the food platter afterwards was amazing and again we didn’t expect so much food.
The whole day went pretty amazing, I would definetly use you again, and what we paid for what we had included was amazing, the bride really enjoyed herself. Big thanks to our Party Organiser for organising this stress free. I would definitely recommend, im waiting for more friends to get engaged now so I can use you again haha!

Gemma Hicks - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Cardiff
"I would like to thank you for helping me organise my sisters perfect hen night. Everything went like clockwork and my experience with UK Girl Thing made the Hen Weekend an easy and perfect one. I was contacted on several occasions to check everything was Ok and that we were happy with everything. Our Party Organiser could not have been nicer and done anything better.
The hotel was lovely, simple but had everything you could need. The staff again, were very helpful, calling us taxi’s and getting us extra pillows/blankets when we asked.
This was definitely the high light of our weekend. The staff were very friendly and our bar man was amazing! Very good value for money and an excellent way to start the weekend. We also had a few nibbles which again were perfect to soak up the cocktails!
There were plenty of places to go and all that we went to were brill, if not very very busy!! We had food booked which was good, the service was quick and the food was nice and spicy!!!
We had a fantastic weekend and would definitely return to Cardiff!! We certainly did enjoy every bit of our time in Cardiff !! The whole process was easy and the payment part (being able to individually pay) was excellent. There were plenty of choices and even though you were relying on others to do the hard work you still felt in control at every point – best of both worlds! Once again many thanks for your help."

"The Beyonce dance class with Emma was such fun. She was a superb teacher and made it all such fun, would recommend Emma to anybody.
The cocktail making was good fun and excellent value for money.
”Barry” the life size blow up doll was the star of the weekend he went everywhere with the bride and made the event!! Photo’s of Barry at the Dancing, cocktail session and nightclub are available to view!! We could have made a fortune if we had charged for photo opportunities with Barry as we were constantly approached for pictures with “Barry”"

Sarah-Jane Pickthorne - Cocktail Making & Spa-Kle Pamper - Birmingham
"I just wanted to say a huge thank-you for helping me organise Louise's Hen Weekend, Nothing was too much trouble.
We all loved the Cocktail Making with the lovely (gorgeous) Joe. The cocktail challenges were so much fun with plenty of shots for both the winners and losers - no-one left sober! We merrily continued along Broad Street until our night was cut short by the bride-to-be slipping and spraining her ankle - luckily all the guests are either doctors or nurses and so Louise was in good hands.
The venue was excellent for our spa-kle ladies experience and they made us all feel pampered and relaxed for our entire stay.
The bride-to-be told me it was the best ever hen night she'd been on and felt thoroughly spoilt all day and evening. Thank-you so much again for all your help"
Sarah-Jane Pickthorne April 2013

"Informative and quick to respond to e-mails. Our party planner, Jo answered all of my questions quickly and couldn’t have been more helpful.
Hotel was as expected but very clean and, considering it was a busy hotel, it wasn’t noisy. The staff on reception were very helpful – booking taxis / giving directions etc
Couldn’t fault the cocktail making experience – the guys who were teaching were lots of fun, got everyone involved and really knew their stuff!! The cocktails were great as was the food served afterwards…More than enough to eat and drink
We had a fantastic weekend- thoroughly enjoyed by all. We’ve used UKGirlThing twice now and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again – it takes all of the hassle out of sorting daytime events and somewhere to eat on a night!"

Becky Brown - Thriller & After Dark - Brighton
"The hotel location was really good. Everyone enjoyed thriller dancing, especially the bride. The food was really good – better than what I thought it was going to be as it was part of a package deal. Everyone liked the club as it was somewhere really different to go

Ruth Claes - Spa-rty & After Dark - York
"Provided prompt responses and was helpful when answering questions
I think the hotel was of good quality of accommodation for the Silver package.
The treatments that the girls provided were excellent – cannot fault the skills of the girls. The chocolate fountain and goodies were excellent!!
Evening went well. Staff were great and everything ran like clockwork. Table was ready for us and food served promptly and no hiccups. Club night was also good. Staff were expecting us and were very accommodating when we asked to move tables. Even gave us another bottle of fizz. One of my friends stumbled and twisted their ankle and wanted to leave early. As she left the door manager asked where she was staying and gave her a lift home
Over all the weekend was good and it was great to have something planned."

Nichola Thomas - After Dark - Nottingham
"The initial enquiry was dealt with by Brian, he was really informative without being pushy as some of the other companies I enquired with were. We changed the ideas around a little to get the best price for the package we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble and each time I got a revised plan.
The party organizer was Shona who has been excellent throughout the planning process. She ensured that we got certain special offers to help with cost and has been on hand to answer every single query immediately. Nothing has been too much trouble even when we had a few people drop out at the last minute.
The hotel was brilliant. From arrival the staff were really helpful and the rooms were good quality, as were the facilities.
The food and service was excellent and they were very attentive."

Jo has been great and was even involved in helping to book my husband to be’s stag do after he was impressed with the service I was receiving.
The Hotel in Nottingham was fantastic, the breakfast is one of the best I have had in a long time.
The Sparty was fab, we all loved being pampered, the beauty therapists seemed to work very hard
The murder mystery was excellent, we all had a great time. The actors were very good and got everyone totally involved in the scenes. The food was lovely with large portions that meant most of us were unable to finish our meals. We would definitely recommend a murder mystery to others. It is the first time a lot of us have done a murder mystery and we loved it, would definitely do another murder mystery evening.
Everything was fab. All of us had a great time and it definitely got us all in the party spirit ready for the wedding. "

Cocktail Making was so much fun. The bride didn’t stop smiling. Sam was great and made sure we all had a great time. Was a great way to kick off the day, was a great ice breaker and got us all in the party mood.
Restaurant were really friendly and the meal was great and the club was great! Quite a few other hens and stags out and the vibe was just really fun and up for a laugh. We didn’t stop dancing all night! staff at . The Oceana club was perfect. Great music, great crowd.

Helped with honest opinions of where to go what it was like etc.
Hotel exceeded expectations of a gold quality we booked. Clean, Friendly, helpful and very spacious.
Cocktail making was spot on, kept us entertained from the moment we walked in until the minute we walked out. Everyone commented on the vodka train the bartenders did at the end of the evening. The party platters after the event were a welcome need after the drinking and they were amazing.
After Dark meal was lovely
Overall we had the most amazing weekend. FABUOUS WEEKEND – I WANT TO DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN!!!"

Very friendly and helpful; arranged a time to call me and everything was quickly and easily arranged. All queries responded to quickly and with plenty of information. Again, Shona very quick to respond to queries and very helpful and forthcoming with information. Did everything to ensure that all my needs were met and was very friendly and approachable throughout.
Hotel was in a good location in the centre of Liverpool (near the river), lovely rooms, good facilities and helpful staff.
The cocktail making was fantastic – the highlight of our weekend. We were pleasantly surprised by the amount and variety of drinks we got to make (and drink!!) The guys running the class were great, very enthusiastic and got everyone involved. There were plenty of games and involvement and the time flew by. I would definitely recommend this.
The meal was great, very generous portions and the restaurant was in a lovely location in the Albert Docks area. The bar was nice, we had a great night !!
Great, everyone had a great time, which was fantastic considering we had a range of ages and a mix of family and friends within the group. Many had never met before the party so it was a very sociable and enjoyable weekend, with a good mix of activities. The information that my party planners provided before the weekend meant that everything ran smoothly and I could shepherd everyone around successfully!! The itinerary was my lifeline!!"

The Thistle hotel was perfect the hotel is a silver and well deserved it – clean rooms, good sizes and a very professional staff. The hotel is just the right distance from the town but close enough to get cheap taxis, the rooms were great & the breakfast was AMAZING!!
The cocktail making was such a laugh and our bar lady was such fun.. Our favourite bit was the cocktail making! Everyone loved it and couldn’t believe how many cocktails we got. We are planning to go again for the cocktail making in the summer just for the fun of it.

I would highly recommend asking for Shona if anyone I know uses UK Girlthing in the future :)
None of us had ever been to a Murder Mystery evening so we didn’t really know what to expect - it was brilliant! The actors were brilliant from start to finish, they were funny and they made us all feel really comfortable. Also, the food was lovely! Would highly recommend this too :)
It was so much fun. The organization was brilliant and everything ran so smoothly. I won’t go into too much detail as I was a bit messy!! The hotel staff were also lovely!"

Catherine Bidewell - Cocktail Making & Adonis Cabaret - Brighton
"Jo was extremely helpful and flexible with our booking. Nothing was too much trouble. We had some late payments due to it being Christmas but Jo didn’t make a fuss. Also being able to pay online individually is a brilliant idea as it doesn’t cause any problems and doesn’t leave anyone out of pocket. Jo you were brilliant thank you so much. All info provided was precise and explained clearly
The hotel in Brighton was at an ideal location. Near to that station and within walking distance to all the pubs/clubs. The hotel was clean and tidy and had all facilities we needed.
We opted to do the cocktail making lesson. When we arrived there was a cocktail lined up for each of us and lots of alcohol was consumed during the lesson. It was great fun and a brilliant way to get everyone to know each other. Great value for money.
The Adonis show was good. It was a giggle and the performers were brilliant.
The weekend was brilliant. All 14 people commented that it was the best hen party they had been on. I would definitely book through UK girl thing again. We had the best weekend!"

The hotel provided excellent service and organised transport, for my friend who broke her leg on Friday, to hospital.
The cocktail making session was really good

"Responded quickly to any questions and answered them fully. Sorted a change to booking very easily prior to final payments.
Hotel was much better than expected, staff were very friendly, helpful, nothing was too much trouble, Breakfast was excellent.
So much fun, Emma dance instructor was encouraging and enthusiastic making us feel more relaxed. Surprised that we were photographed and videoed but made for an excellent memory of the session we wouldn’t have had.
Staff at our After Dark venue were fantastic. Great service and a great venue – so much so we didn’t move on to any clubs after we had eaten.
Fantastic weekend that went without any hitches"

Emma Floyd - Spa-rty & After Dark - Bristol
"Straight from enquiring about a possible hen you guys replied in rapid time which was a brilliant first impresstion as other companies took days to get back to me even one company a week. Then the first lady I spoke to was friendly and answered all my questions and helped me put the best package together for our weekend and then passed me on to Shona.
Shona was brilliant to, nothing was too much and she was always avaiable to speak to. She was fast and efficient with anything I'ed ask her and replying to my emails. Shona waas excellent, couldn't of asked for anyone better. Amazing!
The hotel was lovely, we came before check in so the very friendly reception staff stored our bags for us, booked our taxi's for us and were very helpful. The rooms were lovely and the breakfast had so much choice. I would highly recommend staying there and would even stay there if I was to visit Bristol again. They've really got the balance right with having hen/stag parties and family visits etc... really impressed.
Our spa day in the Hotel was brilliant and was really value for money. I was able to get in the room early to decorate it and meet the beauticans- who were lovely and so friendly. They were organised, brilliant at all the treatments( from foot rubs to massages) and just would go out of there way to make our day special- everyone loved it and to please 18 ladies is pretty good ; )
Our evening meal was at the mexican restaurant and the food was gorgeous, the staff were friendly and so organised. We had 2 for 1 cocktail pitchers and got to watch the bar staff do all there tricks etc when making the cocktails. Was a lovely evening and would eat there again.
Weekend was amazing. I would 100% recommend UKGirl Thing. From start to finish you've been absolutely amazing! I know that the stag have used you guys from my recommendations. Brilliant! Would like to say a big thankyou to Shona, you have been brilliant and your great at your job!"

Rebecca Scott - Go Karting, Comedy Show & After Dark - Edinburgh
"The overall service was great and I found everyone I dealt with so friendly and easy to talk to. I felt that I couldn’t have done it without Joanne. She helped me every step of the way and put up with my million and one questions.
The hotel was spotless and the staff were friendly and did everything they could to make it fun. My friends trousers split and the hotel staff give her a sewing kit so she could fix them. That’s what I call saving the day
We did go karting and it was so much fun. It’s something that I’ve never done before and it was great. We all loved it and I even beat my friends which was great!
The comedy night was great and I must say the venue was great and the acts really made the night, I’ve not laughed so hard in a long time.
On the Saturday the meal really hit the spot. The staff were on hand to help with anything we needed and also loved our outfits as super heroes. We went onto to the nightclub later and were taking to our booth by the manager and it was lovely being able to sit down and chat. The club had other rooms and we had a great time dancing in all the different rooms.
I cannot thank Joanne enough for putting up with all my questions , she was a star throughout the process. I thought it was going to be stressful as I’m the bride organizing my own hen party but I can honestly say it wasn’t . I told UKGirlThing what I had in mind and they came up with all different options and all I did was choose one, it was that easy. If I could sum up my weekend it would be priceless. I’m already recommending to anyone who will listen."

"Both Joanne and Aly were very helpful and friendly and quick to provide assistance and confirm that my booking had been made. I was very impressed by the customer service during the booking process. Aly was very friendly and chatty on the phone which was really nice and made me feel that it wouldn’t be a problem if I had any questions in the future. She was happy to explain more about the day and was honest about what I should expect. Joanne was very efficient in providing me with booking forms and confirmations and was always quick to reply to emails.
Really fun and we really didn’t expect to get so much alcohol! If anything there was probably a bit too much food considering we had dinner reservations at 8pm and our cocktail class food wasn’t scheduled until 5.45pm. It meant we had eaten some lunch before, so a lot of the food laid on went to waste. We were pleased to see a couple of platters of food come out, but when they said, ‘There are 4 more, you may want to make room…’ we were a bit shocked!
After Dark was great. Friendly waiters and a fun atmosphere, but again, if anything, too much food – it just kept coming! We had to cancel desert!
Everyone in the group agreed that the package was very good value for money and I would recommend York as a location. Very good service, a very fun experience, easy organization and overall, great value for money."

Lisa Walker - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Manchester
"Extremely helpful and knowledgeable
Happy with room and facilities for a bronze hotel. Can you also pass on our thanks to the hotel staff who were great and supplied us with extra pillows and duvets.
Henry who was our host for the cocktail activity was brilliant he made the whole thing very enjoyable and fun. We all had a fantastic time so if you could pass on our thanks that would be appreciated. The food was also very welcome as we had not eaten since breakfast.
We went to the restaurant and again the staff could not have been more helpful and attentive and the food was delicious. Please pass on our thanks to all the staff there who also boxed up Laurens food to take away as she felt a little poorly.
We had a fantastic time. We did not make it to the night club due to excess alcohol but that is the whole point of a hen do.Definitely would recommend it was so easy to book and to get everyone to pay there part it took the stress away."

Laura Hayes - Cocktail Making & After Dark - York
"The way in which the planning was organised was first class. The manners and organizational skills of the UKGIRLTHING staff are phenomenal. The queries I had were dealt with efficiently and I could not have asked for better customer service – it is second to none. The information I requested was provided quickly and I had no stress or issues at all when looking at the different options offered by the company.
Our party organizer (Chloe) was outstanding. She is very gifted at her job and made the whole process seamless. She was organised, efficient and answered all of my questions and issues without hesitation. THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOO MUCH for everything - you are AMAZING
The hotel staff were welcoming and fulfilled everything we expected and more, we were given a very warm welcome and the standards of facilities and cleanliness in the hotel were also second to none. All members of the group had beautiful rooms and were truly pleased with the standard of the rooms and facilities we were given a part of our package. Despite the flooding the transfer was seamless and there were no issues with the booking transfer, I was kept up to date and the hotel was fantastic with us throughout our stay.
Our day activity was cocktail making in York – it was AMAZING. Many members of the group have completed a similar activity before and ALL remarked at how much better this session was to others in difference cities that they had booked themselves. The value for money was phenomenal. Lunch was served on arrival and the food quality was brilliant. The amount of drinks included in the package price was beyond belief! The activity leader (JOSH) was brilliant and each and every one of use thoroughly enjoyed the session. There were a whole range of ages on our hen night and everyone remarked at how welcome, valued and included they felt. Everyone was given the chance to participate and we all REALLY enjoyed the activity.
The evening activity was also outstanding. Our meal and drinks in York were great and once again we could not have asked for anything more. Upon arrival we were given a VIP area and made to feel special at once. The food was excellent and out waiter (JAMES) was outstanding. The drinks and nachos were beautiful on arrival and all of the staff were very attentive. The way in which we were treated made us feel very very welcome and special. I cannot find fault with any part of the evening meal, drinks, service or location and believe me I find fault with most things!
I have really enjoyed our experience with your company and would like to pass on my thanks to all involved in the process. My sister had a hen night that she adored and to me that means the works – so thank YOU for helping me to achieve that! UKGIRLTHING is without doubt one of the best companies I have ever used and would not hesitate to recommend them – in fact I already have!"

Tracy Benet - Party Bus - Leeds
"Prompt responses to enquiries and really friendly staff with named party planner made it more personal. Really good personal service.
We all had a really good time and a good laugh. Only criticism was that the party Bus was over booked and two was needed which took time to organize and my hen party group was separated therefore when on the bus, but all enjoyed it none the same.
Leeds is a fantastic place to enjoy any celebration and Ukgirthing do provide a good variety of packages to choose from if you want your event organised. It really does take the pressure off and the easy payment scheme is a good idea."

"Excellent. My queries were always answered ASAP and the service was really excellent. The girl I spoke with was lovely and made everything easier for me. Really cannot praise the service enough. Shona was gave excellent service and no query was too difficult and she seemed like she really wanted to make sure we had a lovely time.
Pleasently surprised. Hotel was gorgeous and the room where we had our beauty treatments was lovely.
Spa-rty was brilliant. We thought the cost compared with what we got and the service was outstanding.
Again brilliant. Meal was already paid for which was fab so it was just drinks. The restaurant were expecting us and had a lovely table ready, no problems with the booking at all.
Fabulous. Most important of all, the hen had a lovely time.I would definitely use the company for any future hen weekends I may plan. Hopefully when I get married, I would make sure my hen uses this company too. UK girl thing made it so easy for everyone to pay when they wanted, catered to individual needs and so everything was taken care of."

We had a meal which was lovely! The restaurant was extremely quiet but we didn’t have to worry how loud we were! Bar was fab very cheesy but a good bar to start the night in. We got a bottle of bubbles on arrival which was nice.

The hotel staff were lovely, all very willing to help and friendly! Hotel was very clean and tidy.
Everyone had a brilliant time at Cocktail school. The bartenders we had were fantastic! The food we were provided was lovely and everyone commented on what a fantastic job the venue had done.
We all had an amazing time on the hen weekend!

A lovely hotel. Very helpful staff and good quality food
We had an excellent time – I would recommend it to anybody – as we had a group of all ages and all abilities and it was only the dancer who struggled with the lack of timing but we had so much fun. As a group we laughed and work so hard we hurt all over.

Chloe was also extremely helpful and any queries I had were answered in a timely manner. Our itinerary was also thorough and everything I needed to plan the weekend and refer to trying to organise 15 girls.
We booked a Gold hotel and I think it was that. The facilities were great in the rooms and the breakfast was beautiful. The service in the hotel was also very friendly and efficient.
Our hen weekend was fab overall and I would like to thank UK Girl Thing for organizing it. Many Thanks."

"Chloe & Aly made it really easy to plan a memorable night to suit many different tastes and personalities. There was really something for everyone of all ages and we had a great time without breaking the bank thanks to the amazing value UK Girl Thing secured for us.
Natasha the dance instructor was a star. Really good personality friendly and fun who somehow managed to coordinate a bunch of uncoordinated, slightly tipsy ladies! She really deserves a special mention as she really was lovely! Loved the certificates, dare cards and the other gifts in the goody bag.
Food was amazing at the after dark evening. Excellent value!
100% YES to recommend"
Karla Hanna November 2012
Lisa Robertson - Thriller Dancing & After Dark - Edinburgh
"All the staff were very helpful and made it very easy to book. I really liked the fact that you did not need definite numbers at the initial booking. Very good as there were some changes to number etc and nothing was a hassle to them they made organizing the hen do a cinch. Thank you all very much for making it happen
The hotel was really good right in the middle of town so everything was just a walk away. Being able to get 3 in a room made it more of a laugh and the hotel staff were really helpful and didn’t mind us asking for extra bits and bobs for the room.
This was the best bit of the weekend we had a ball, we laughed our socks off and even though we had no rhythm or timing it just made it even better. What a laugh!!!
We had lots of fun singing and the atmosphere was great. The food was also really good and everyone enjoyed their meal.
It was one of the best weekends we have had and at a reasonable price out of 22 ladies all 22 said they had a fab time and would do it all again next week!! Many thanks for all the laughs and giggles."

I would highly recommend the cocktails making, the spa day and the hotel.. was honestly great. We had an AMAZING time in Liverpool, everything was brilliant.

Tracey Sparke - Single Ladies & After Dark - Leeds
"Having booked the weekend very last minute! I found the service and help of the whole team invaluable. I had to go away on holiday and found that through the chaos that ensued, the team supported my co bridesmaid through it all and the weekend was finally booked. There was nothing too big or small to ask and the response time was very efficient. Could not thank you enough!
The hotel was fantastic and was even more luxurious than what the girls were expecting. i have stayed at this hotel before and was more than pleased when i found out where we were staying. Staff were fabulous and couldn’t do enough to help.
The Single Ladies dance class was superb and really got us in the mood for the night ahead!! we managed to learn the whole dance and even looked ‘okay’ when we played the video back lol. We kept this as a surprise for the bride and she was more than happy for what was presented before her . The venue was slightly interesting as was very cold and out of the way however when the music started and in the swing of things we could not have been more impressed!
Awesome!!!! Spanish was the perfect choice and food was fab and kept on coming! As a venue the club could not have been more perfect. The staff were friendly and attentive and all girls were very impressed. Would recommend the after dark package to everyone!
Weekend was absolutely amazing and will never be forgotten I'm sure. Looking forward to a good catch up and reminisce at the wedding in 3 weeks time!!!! Aly, Chloe and the whole gang have been wonderful!!"

OH MY GOD, did we laugh!!!!! The Adonis show was really entertaining, The drag queen compere was fantastic, to be honest we could have watched her all night, Lady James should have a show of her own. It was brilliant to see our bride to be up on stage strutting her stuff!! we had a fab time and danced the night away.
JUST FAB!! We all had a great time, our bride to be didn't stop smiling and says she had a hen night she will never forget, and that’s what really matters! Thanks ukgirlthing for helping me give her the night she deserved!!"

Caran Tait - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Liverpool
"Great help, very efficient. Can’t fault anything
We opted for the gold hotel option; location was great, rooms lovely & clean, staff friendly and lots of choice at breakfast. Also used the hotel bar one night making use of 2-4-1 drinks vouchers, bar staff lovely & friendly too.
Cocktail Master Class - we had such a good time, drank plenty, ate plenty and definitely laughed plenty. We had Martin, lovely young guy-who showed us the ropes behind the bar with a few fun games and learning to make drinks you maybe wouldn’t normally opt for & being surprised at how tasty they were. Enjoyed a great yummy platter between us all with yet another cocktail, surprised we managed to walk out the pub.
Excellent Lovely meal - each got to pick 3 courses of whatever we wanted from their full menu.
We honestly thought it was great value for money, from the hotel to the activities. We couldn’t believe how good the deal was. Thank you so much for all your help during booking etc. we had a blast, it was a great weekend from start to finish . YES!!! (would recommend UKGT) Without a doubt!!! I have already passed on your details to a few girls & I am currently trying to think of the next excuse for a girls weekend away now we are all married so will be back in touch. Thanks again"

"Very Helpful during booking and very accomodating to needs, put at ease any concerns that we had
Hotel was in an excellent location and good value for money
Burlesque was good fun and very organised
Mexican meal was brilliant and the club was good as well. Guest list entry into the club and free champagne which was good, would have been good to have a booth though.
We had a brilliant weekend, we were dreading the burlesque dancing but it was really good fun in the end. It didn’t matter that we couldn’t remember the steps it was still good fun. Mexican meal was brilliant and the club was good as well. Very good and organized trip. Yes will difinately use them again, the prices are clear you know what all is included and what to expect."

Great check in and check out times. Friendly staff and all our rooms were together, which was perfect!
A well organised night. Our lead cocktail maker, Ian, was really friendly and made the night really enjoyable. Lots of drinks included in the price and everyone was involved at all times.

"Excellent service provided, dealt with enquiry fast and looked into everything we wanted, very friendly. Very friendly and kept us up to date, replied straight away and made it all hassle free.
Hotel was excellent lovely and clean and great location, staff lovely and great fun, dead good quality.
This was excellent, great fun we loved this and it made the hen do, we got so many cocktails and the staff were fab. I would recommend that to anyone we had a pregnant lady on board and she said how much she enjoyed it and she didn’t think she would. Evening meal was excellent, nice food, nice staff great location.
We had such a lovely weekend, you organised things down to a T for us all and we didn’t have to stress or worry, it was so easy we just had to turn up, the hotel was luch, the little extras we got there was amazing and the staff treated us so well. The food was great at the hotel and great at the tai place. We were treated like princesses all the way through."

"Laura was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble for her. Overall service was very good
The hotel was fabulous and we all voiced that we would love to stay here again sometime in the future!
The weekend went very well. We managed an early start by train to Bournemouth from Clapham Junction. The hotel was very good and in great location The staff very welcoming and helpful. Everyone of us loved the rooms we were allocated and all had sea views which really made a difference.
We were dressed up and made the most of our time in Bournemouth and our friend's hen party weekend! Would certainly use UK GirlThing again and have recommended other friends and family."

Hazel Coathup - After Dark - Liverpool
"Shona was also very friendly easy to talk to and very accommodating.Very friendly and efficient.
I would certainly recommend the Hotel. It was what you would expect from a 4 star hotel. All the staff there were very friendly and made us very welcome. We left our bags there the next day while we went site seeing.
We had really good service from our waitress at our after dark venue with most of the menu available to us. We phoned up the club to say we were running a little late and would we still be able to get fast track in after 10.30pm and that was not a problem. The club is in an old church and very impressive with Brazilian dancers dancing on the tables.
I would certainly recommend Liverpool as there is so much to see and do. We did pick a very busy weekend for Liverpool as there was an Irish march through the city on the Saturday, a big Boxing fight in the evening and the Liverpool Marathon on the Sunday. I would recommend UK GirlThing to friends and family. In fact one of my daughter's friends is thinking of using you when she organises her sister's Hen Do in December."
Hazel Coathup October 2012
Sam Anderson - Thriller Dance & After Dark - Birmingham
"When I made my initial enquiries all information was very clear to understand and all cost were shown up-front. The option for the hens to pay separately was also a great selling point and made my life a lot easier! Laura was always very quick to reply to any emails I sent, and any questions I had were taken very seriously and dealt with promptly. She was very friendly and personal. There wasn’t a single hitch-up during the booking stage or on the day.
Great choice of hotel, very friendly staff who were happy to take endless photographs…… The drinks vouchers were also a great little bonus.
Lovely instructor who was really bubbly and made everyone feel comfortable, a few girls were out of their ‘comfort zone’ but even they joined in and enjoyed it
Our after dark venue was a perfect choice seeing as there were so many other hen do’s in there – made the atmosphere really good fun and all tables were mixing and joining in with each others games – meant everyone could really let their hair down. Staff were really good aswell, our poor waiter was a good sport as he kept being made to join in with dares etc. The choice of bars and clubs were not to our taste and I made my own arrangements for the evening but I did take out the bar guide as a back-up plan
Potentially this was a difficult hen do to organise as it was in a city that I am unfamiliar with and the group was fairly large, it was reassuring to know that all our venues were checked as being safe and ‘hen-friendly’ as I have been away before and hotels and restaurants have been very unfriendly towards group/value bookings. I would Most definitely recommend, I can’t fault the service that I received. All in all it was a great experience, I must admit I have always turned my nose up at group booking companies as I thought the personal touch would be lost but I would 100% recommend anyone to use such a company now. I did search around before I booked and found UKGirlThing to be unbeatable on value. My party expert Laura was very professional and all of her instructions were clear and precise so I knew exactly what to do and when. I set up a facebook group for my party and just posted all updates in step by step. One of the best points was the fact it was a cash free event, everything was paid up in advance which meant no stops for cash-points, splitting the bill etc."
Sam Anderson October 2012
Zoe Anthony - Pamper Me & Murder Mystery - Birmingham
"Laura was very helpful and very friendly. Everything ran very smoothly – thanks!!
The hotel was very nice and in a decent location for us to get around to the bars and train station

The party was really good. Went to reflex and there were a few hen parties in and stag parties which made for a good night! Definitely would recommend! Lovely people to deal with, and very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend! Great value for money too!"

Cocktail making was great fun. The bar tender who hosted us really joined in with the fun and made the day very special. An excellent value activity.
Party bus was absolutely crazy and so much fun. It’s great to mix with other groups and be shown around the various hot spots of the city.
A big thank you to the team for all your hard work organizing this event. We all had such a great time and haven’t stopped laughing since! Saturday was the perfect day and the whole day had a real party atmosphere. I would definitely recommend UK Girl Thing, Newcastle, the hotel, cocktail classes and the party bus to anybody looking for a hen night to remember. I can’t thank you enough for organizing this weekend for me – organizing a group of girls is not the easiest of tasks! The booking system was straight forward, staff were very helpful, information provided was brilliant and hotel and activities made the perfect weekend."

"I found each member of the team I communicated with was friendly and keen to help. I was encouraged to book early before the football fixture list was issued to prevent any disappointment. Laura took over the management of my booking and kept me informed and updated as required.
The Hotel was in an excellent location. The décor was tired, but the rooms were clean and tidy. The staff were all lovely throughout our stay and the food (breakfast) was good.
The burlesque activity was a lot of fun and the instructor Lucy was friendly and made it fun for all of us. She took photos on our cameras whilst we were practicing our moves and it was great to have our memories captured.
We were introduced to Joe who then organised our booth and drinks, etc. We had a great time and would recommend as a great place for a hen night.
We thoroughly enjoyed the hen weekend. The people of Liverpool were lovely and so friendly. I think that it was great to have our weekend organised by UK Girl Thing and I would certainly recommend you to any brides-to-be. I think we got a great deal so yes, definitely would recommend."

Spa afternoon with treatments at the hotel. Very good. The spa was lovely. The beauty therapists were really nice and all staff were very helpful.
Two course evening meal pre paid was great. We were required to pre order this was a great idea as our food was ready within 20mins of us arriving at the restaurant. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food. We all enjoyed trying various cocktails off the menu. The staff were again very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them

"Claudia was very helpful with my initial enquiry and offered excellent advice when I was changing party package and numbers. Jo was very helpful and kept in touch and provided all the necessary information and documentation to ensure the weekend went to plan. Thank you for all your help in organising this weekend for me.
Hotel was excellent. No problems with check in and we were able to check in members of the party who had yet to arrive. Breakfasts were fantastic and exactly what we needed after a heavy night on the drink. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Bar staff very attentive and helpful. Would definitely stay there again.
Meal was excellent and well worth the money we paid for the evening meal package. We did not really take advantage of the VIP nightclub entry.
All in all we had an excellent weekend and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Everything went to plan. Would recommend UKGirlThing to friends. I think I have only just recovered from the weekend! We had a brilliant time. I have never laughed so much."

Robyn Naylor - Spa-rty, Cocktail Making & After Dark - Nottingham
"I enquired first and got lots of help and advice, and Robyn took over after and I know she found it extremely well organized and could ring as much as she liked to get things sorted. Helped us choose the right place and gave us lots of options. Brilliant. Everything sorted well (through Robyn again) Robyn said she would miss speaking to UKGirlThing all the time!!
Hotel was absolutely lovely, better than what we expected. So good for what we paid and hotel staff accommodating to a hen party. Rooms lovely and cleaned everyday really well. Breakfast lush, everything perfect!
Cocktail making was AMAZING. Everyone loved it and had such a good laugh, really really funny and lots of alcohol!! The vodka train amazed me! Also the food we got afterwards in there was really good quality and we didn’t expect it to be that lovely. Cocktail making was everyone's favourite I think - that was brilliant!
Meal on first night was lovely, really quick service considering how many people there were. And then got into the club fine and had a really good night there. Last night we had dinner in hotel which was great, got the room to ourselves and were looked after well, food lovely. I think they forgot to put the wine in but this was sorted straight away.
Spa day was lovely too, really well organized and got everything that was said we would get. Only little thing – would of been better to do the manicures first, as they had to wait until the end and then ages for it to dry so couldn’t come swimming straight away! Also we loved the pool and Jacuzzi etc, was in there all the time!
Couldn’t have asked for a better weekend. Everything went really smoothly with so many people and I was worried that things wouldn’t go quite as planned but everything we booked was better than expected and went according to plan. So much fun, and will definitely be getting everyone else to book their hen dos through you – I think Robyn will be!! Everyone loved it! We got so much for our money too."

Emma Williams - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Nottingham
"Jo was really helpful, I needed a few gentle reminders with a few deadlines and she was polite and professional when reminding me.
Have done cocktail making 3 times now and every time they do something different – this time there was games – again great fun for all ages .. OVER 18
We really didn’t expect the food to be as nice as it was, it was really nice and well presented .. with BIG portions so we was all happy.
We had a great weekend, and the hen was really please with all the surprises we had in store for her! 2nd time I’ve used yourselves now … if I’m lucky enough to be someone else’s maid of honour will be back I’m sure!"

Burlesque Dancing - Brilliant, all had a VERY good time, no complaints about the girl who did the activity.
Restaurant was amazing and catered for my allergies extremely well! They gave me another choice of meal and brought all tapas dishes out at the same time. They allowed the bridesmaids to go in beforehand and decorate the table as well.
Excellent weekend – we all now keep getting hen do blues and want to do it again! I have already recommended you!"

We all had an amazing time and the hotel, bollywood dancing, meal and all the extra goodies were faultless

Lisa Bishop - Cocktail Making - Bristol
"Jo was great and organised a fantastic Hen Weekend for my Sister in Law! I was kept informed of all developments and communication was great. I’d be happy to recommend you
The hotel was fantastic, perfect location and excellent facilities. Pool, sauna, Jacuzzi & steam room all in really good condition. Very clean rooms & the staff were very helpful & friendly. We all agreed we would stay there again & we had some fussy ladies with us.
The cocktail making experience was so much fun and a bargain for the money paid! ALOT of alcohol! We’d never laughed so much playing the games & drinking our weird concoctions :) The food at the end was really nice, cooked perfectly & plenty of it! The certificates we all received at the end were a great little touch too :) We would definitely recommend this as a MUST DO activity!
The whole weekend was fantastic and the cocktail making experience was excellent! We cannot thank you enough for arranging such a great weekend, I’ve never seen my sister in law so happy! We will definitely be recommending you to anyone we know thinking of booking a hen weekend (I’m hoping mine will be next!)"

Fiona Drummond - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Leeds
"Jo was brilliant and answered all my questions. She was very patient and helpful throughout
The hotel was amazing, the food on the Friday night was beautiful and breakfast was lovely. Breakfast was on until 11am was brilliant for a hungover hen party such as ourselves!! The evening meal at our hotel on the Friday night was just what we needed it broke the ice and everyone got to know each other! (and the food was gorgeous!!)
The cocktail making was absolutely brilliant! We all managed to get drunk and we all thoroughly enjoyed it! I don’t think any of us did not fall in love with Richard, our cocktail instructor, he was so good with us, and stayed with us while we all deteriorated into a drunken state, and also seemed to enjoy himself!
The Saturday night meal was slightly less successful, however that was due to us being hungover already from our cocktail masterclass!! Ha ha!! Food was lovely though no complaints.
We all had an absolutely amazing weekend and no-one could quite believe the value for money that we got! 2 nights hotel and breakfast, 2x evening meals, cocktail masterclass (including shots etc) and lunch on the Saturday, and entry into a club all for £120!! Amazing value and we all said we would definitely organize something like this again! Well done UK girl thing I am very impressed with the whole package, and even the fact that people could pay in their own time by using your online payment plan! Lots of smiles, lots of memories, and photos to follow. Can’t believe it’s over now though. Thanks again xx"

Clare Fraser - Thriller & After Dark - Edinburgh
"The hotel was perfect for what we needed. Really good location and well-priced. We were delighted to get availability during the Edinburgh Festival .
Our Thriller dance class was in a good location, well organised and brilliant fun. Would recommend the Thriller Dance Experience to anyone.
Our food was great, the waiters were Italian (and hot!! Hehe!!!) and made a big fuss of us with phallic shaped deserts etc! They didn’t even mind that we had an extra guest; a naked blow up doll called Rodger! The waiters were just brilliant, they couldn’t have done any more for us.
We couldn’t have asked for more, we all had a great weekend! Cannot fault the organisation. As stressed bride with a full time job, it was great to have UKGirlThing booking and keeping track of everything. Would highly recommend! We had a great night in Edinburgh."
Clare Fraser August 2012
Paula Townson - River Cruise - Nottingham
"The reply to my enquiry was quick and informative. The deal offered was still available several weeks later (I had some trouble getting commitment!) which was great. The service I received was excellent all staff I was in contact with were brilliant, and they resolved any issues quickly and without fuss.
We had the gold package, which was a very beautiful hotel. It was easy to find, and very close to amenities of every kind – shop, bars, restaurants and clubs-great! The staff were very pleasant and helpful-to the extent they honoured the complimentary champagne on arrival even though there was only four of us
The boat party was brilliant fun, a real welcome alternative to just going out round the town. The food was good and the music was fun – something for everyones taste! The club afterwards was also great fun – very happy customers!
Overall the weekend was fantastic, everything ran pretty smoothly and we all had a fantastic time. The thing I liked most is that each person is responsible for paying their own bill, which takes a lot of pressure off the organizer! Not many companies offer this"

"Service was great – party planner was happy to provide a number of party options and answered any queries quickly and helpfully. Everything was dealt with quickly and the process was made extremely easy for me.
Cocktail making was excellent – the whole party were surprised at how many cocktails we had, how involved we all were, and how well our barman coped with us! Brilliant fun and would thoroughly recommend to others.
Spa-rty was also brilliant, our beauticians were great and it was a much needed relaxing day.
The meal was lovely and the staff were fantastic – allowed us to decorate the tables with photos, confetti, balloons, party poppers etc and also kept all of this for us overnight so we could collect it the following day rather than detouring back to the hotel. Food was excellent and couldn’t fault the service at all.
A brilliant weekend - I had some reservations as the process of booking and arranging had been so straightforward, it seemed too good to be true – but for the most part everything went smoothly.Everyone had a fantastic time! The whole process was so straightforward – the party planners were excellent and always replied to emails quickly and in a friendly manner – it felt as if ours was the only party they were planning! The payment tracker is brilliant, and was the main thing that persuaded me to book with UKGirlThing, as I was concerned about ending up out of pocket when I began arranging the weekend. I really can’t fault the service or the weekend"

Emma Prentice - Spa-rty & After Dark - Nottingham
"Firstly, I would like to thank you for looking after us from the minute we enquired about my hen party - every time I had a query or question it was answered straight away.
My weekend, from the minute we checked into the hotel until the minute we checked out as just spot on!!! None of my party could be faulted and no one else in the party could fault anything
The room upgrade for the bride was on the executive floor, which ment all of my party got to us the club lounge, where in here all of our drinks were free, spirits, wines, beers etc so this was a nice little suprise!!!
The meal in TGI's was excellent, really good food!!! they treated us really well... I got to go behind the bar and make cocktails and had a special shaped banana to eat!!!! its was very funny!!! The club revival,again they treated us really well...We got straight into the club and then a big free fish bowl cocktail and we had the best time in there!!!
AND then we have got the treatments at the Spa-rty - well these were simply amazing
I would absoloutly recommend any bride to be to book with you as your packages are excellent value for money - infact i really dont know how you can make any commissions from a booking as we tried to work out what the price would be by doing all this seperatly and it was way way way more!!!! But thank you so much for everything!!! I had a wicked time!!"

Bronze was basic but nice and clean and no less than we needed. It was nice that our early check in room was quite a large one as there were 9 of us getting ready in it!
Cocktail Making was very much enjoyed by all, the food and especially the drink were lovely!
Meal was lovely, no problems with the order and no having to mess with a bill as pre-paid which is a great idea
We had an absolutely amazing weekend and enjoyed every minute of it.

"From the beginning of my booking the party planning experience was excellent. I was always kept updated as to where my booking was at and how to go about continuing the process
My party planning experience was brilliant during my booking. I was always kept updated and prompted for the details they needed as and when they needed them. It was a brilliant way to organise an event for multiple people and I my party organiser was very helpful every step of the way
Lovely clean hotel in a great location. Nice bar and restaurant areas
We had the best time cocktail making through the day. The staff were brilliant and went above and beyond to make our experience one to remember. The value for money was tremendous and I would recommend this to others in a heartbeat

Lisa Hopley - River Cruise - Nottingham
"From the first phone call to enquire about booking nothing was too much trouble. All my questions were answered and lots of information given. It was so easy to book, no trouble at all. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The online payment system was also easy to use and good idea that each hen can log on and pay for themselves
My party planner was Jo. She kept in frequent contact via email to let me know when payments and other information were needed. I often had questions to ask her via email and I always got a prompt reply. She also sent me information about the Nottingham Bars etc
We stayed in a 4* Hotel. It was excellent and in a great location. The staff were very organised when we arrived, all our details were correct and our free drinks vouchers ready! The rooms were superb, very large and clean. I asked the hotel if they could arrange taxis for the 27 of us to the river boat which they did no problem at all. They even phoned my room to let me know how much each taxi was going to be.
The Party River Cruise was fantastic! Again everything was very organised, when we arrived at the boat I was given the nightclub tickets and a vegetarian option voucher. We had reserved seats on the top deck. There was a brilliant atmosphere on board. Drinks were fairly cheap and the music was great. The food was delicious, plenty of choice. The vegetarian option was lasagne, but we asked if it was possible to have vegetarian burgers instead. The chef said this wasn’t a problem at all. Everyone was up dancing! Once we boarded back at the dock buses were waiting and took us to the door of the nightclub. Large nightclub with lots of rooms to choose with different music in each. The whole night was amazing and we all enjoyed it.
We all had an absolutely brilliant time. Everything was organised as planned. Couldn’t of wished for a better hen party! Had a brilliant hen night!! Thank you so much to you and your team"

Nina Pich - Glamour Puss, Cocktail Making & Adonis Cabaret - Leeds
"Hotel was loved by all and the hotel went over and above to be accommodating. We asked if we could have early check in for the rooms on Saturday and they were all ready for the girls at between 10-11am. Wonderful!
Cocktail Making was hilarious and very professional. A fantastic event and Richard was great, as well as fantastic eye candy for the group
Adonis was the funniest thing ever! I think everyone was crying with laughter and some of the sights made all of our eyes water for other reasons as well!! All the brides were asked up on stage at the end to lap dance one of the Adonis guys and was brilliant. All of the other parties came up to her at the end saying she was the best by far. Which she totally was – again hilarious!!
Glamour Puss was amazing. Room was set out lovely and the complimentary wine went down a treat! The beauticians did an amazing job with high quality make up, manicures etc. Plus the girls were lovely
Great value for money and all the girls were asking for our details as they had birthday parties / hen parties to sort and thought the weekend was in their words ‘the best hen party they had ever been on’! Excellent Service, Thank-you!"
Nina Pich July 2012
Elaine Stott - Cocktail Making - Manchester
"It was very easy to make the booking and the staff were very friendly and polite, easy to get it organised. We were kept up to date really well by the party organiser on who had paid, who still needed to etc.
Everyone who attended has said how good the cocktail making event was, and that it was worth the money. The staff were great, really good fun and helpful, even when one of the party fell and sliced her knee open completely, the first aid team where very quick to deal with it. The young man behind the bar was a star, how he copes with 25 drunken, loud women is amazing! They were so nice, all the girls bought a memento keying which had the group pic on which was only £3 and then they sent us all these after! I now have the group shot framed and on my wall!"
Elaine Stott June 2012

"It was easy to book and everyone in the office was always more than helpful. Jo has been fantastic. Thank you for organising everything.
Hotel and service within the hotel was excellent, also couldn't have wished for a better location
I would strongly recommend the Adonis Show, it was surprisingly tasteful and a good laugh.
The whole weekend was fantastic, my whole party enjoyed themselves and we were a mixture of ages and tastes. A big thank you for making my 'last weekend of freedom' as enjoyable as it was. Everything was perfect and I would recommend UKGirlThing without a doubt! "

Spa-rty package was enjoyed by everyone. Good range of choice for treatments.
An excellent meal. All pre-ordered food correct, delicious and very helpful staff

Laila Benmousa - Spa-rty & VIP After Dark - Leeds
"Hotel was fabulous it had amazing facilities. All the girls loved the hotel. Rooms were huge and we had 2 double beds with lots of pillows. We couldn’t have asked for more at this hotel. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The staff was lovely and we were treated extremely well. Highly recommend this hotel and package
The pamper experience was lovely. The actual experience that we got by the 2 beauticians was fab. The room was set up to accommodate us and the chocolate fountain was a great touch.
The meal was lovely and plenty of alcohol was welcomed by all!! This was well worth the deal and made the evening a real hit. The club was a great place to go with a variety of floors to visit! Also the free champers was also a very good thing!!!"

The sushi teacher was fabulous and the staff at the restaurant were excellent at making sure we all had plenty to drink and were all enjoying ourselves
We all had a really good weekend and everything went to plan. Thank you for all your help and for making the hen do organisation so much less stressful.

Joanne Hunt - Spa-rty, VIP After Dark & Cabaret - Manchester
"The weekend was not what we were expecting. It was what we thought and a 100 times better!! I had 30 people all of different ages and every single person loved it!
Silver hotel but to us it was diamond!! All staff were friendly and I wouldn’t have thought such a classy hotel would welcome hens so openly.
Could not have been better! My bridesmaids booked me a cheeky butler for the spart-ty as an addition to my booking and this worked our perfect and was additional treat! I will definitely be booking with UK girl thing again. Not one of my guests could believe the value for money we had and we have no idea how you made a profit!! Thank you sooo much! Shame you can’t organise my wedding haha! 100% yes to recommend and I'm already planning to contact you to book my aunties 50th Birthday :)"

The chocolate making was excellent, we all had such a good laugh. The "Chef" was fantastic, he made the day so enjoyable
It was such an experience and Liverpool is a wonderful place. Great to deal with and great range of activities. Would recommend chocolate making, it was brill!
Use UKGirlThing, it takes all the hassle out of organising"
Paula Jones June 2012
Andrea Rainbow - Spa-rty & After Dark - Liverpool
"I felt as if I could relax knowing the team had all our requirements in hand & felt I did not need to worry about organizing any aspect of the weekend.
The spa-rty experience was very relaxed and the girls that carried out the treatments were friendly, likeable and by the end of the afternoon we felt very comfortable around them.
The meal booked was lovely and the price was fantastic, especially as we were really looked after by our waitress.
From start to finish we all had a fantastic time and everything ran smoothly. I would definitely recommend UKGirlThing to anyone who wants a fun packed weekend that’s totally stress free to arrange. Thanks again for organising the weekend for us."
Andrea Rainbow June 2012
Jessica Hume - Cocktail Making & After Dark - Leeds
"Brilliant service! My party planner was absolutely amazing, she was always there to help me out with any questions I had. Throughout the booking I had a number of changes but my party planner dealt with these changes straight away.
Our hotel was lovely. The facilities were great and the staff were always happy to help!
Cocktail making class was great! The bride loved it! Very impressed at the amount of drink you were given during the class. Great meal! We were given A LOT of food!
The weekend was great, the bride had an amazing time. Everything was well organised in advanced so I didn’t have to worry about anything! Great service! Thank you very much!"

Laura Foster - Cocktail Making & VIP After Dark - Manchester
"The cocktail experience just could not be bettered. From the bar man (poor thing!), to the value of the cocktails, to the food (really very good!) to the overall service and location – it was all really perfect!!
The service in the VIP After Dark venue was honestly great. The waitress was sooo busy but really friendly and not at all phased by the rowdy hen parties in there (not us obviously! ;-)
It all ran like clockwork – honestly was great to have it planned in advance. All of us could not believe the value for money from this package! The online payment thing was a real bonus! I will definitely recommend you to others!"
Laura Foster May 2012
Michelle Keown - Murder Mystery & Cocktail Making - Edinburgh
"Hotel was excellent, staff, service and food (breakfast and dinner ). Also an Italian Rugby team (Benetton Treviso) were staying so this pleased all the girls no end
Cocktail making – we would highly recommend this to any group. We were looked after by Callum Johnson in Revolution and he was excellent! Although it was an early start (12noon) after a late night everyone soon livened up…we all had a chance to make a cocktail, then there were some games and ended with lovely food. A really good fun activity.
The Murder Mystery was a laugh a minute. The two actors really guided us through a fun filled evening thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.
The only downside of the weekend was that it had to end! We are all sore from laughing so much…everyone enjoyed all the activities. They really helped everyone to get to know each other. Would most definitely recommend, the service has been second to none. My sister, the hen, works in events so I was under pressure to organise a good weekend. She was extremely impressed with the entire weekend would highly recommend UKGirlThing to friends and family"
Michelle Keown May 2012
Emma Johnson - Spa-rty - Leeds
"Perfect!! The entire experience was just perfect! I could not have asked for anything more from the moment I enquired right through to leaving the hotel.
The beauticians were friendly and really made us all feel relaxed. The food was gorgeous and the treatments left everyone with a huge smile on their face!
The hotel was amazing!!! Staff were friendly and we were well looked after. The rooms were immaculate and we couldn’t have asked for anything better! The pool was a definite must and really helped us relax (even more) before our night out!
Great customer service at our meal on the night! The food was fantastic and everyone really enjoyed it! Would definitely recommend the banoffee waffle!!
I will always remember my hen weekend and what a brilliant time I had! thank you also for the lovely bottle of wine left in my room! It was a beautiful touch and really helped us get into the party spirit as we got ready! Would definitely recommend. I am already trying to think of a reason to have another celebration to use you again!"

"The weekend was great, and everyone was more than satisfied, especially with the perfume class and the dinner which turned out to be a really good deal and great food.The perfume making class was definitely the highlight of the hen party- everyone had a great time and loved the process. And the woman teaching our class turned out to be a St Andrews graduate, which was a nice surprise as we are all St Andrews grads as well! Again, thank you so much for all your help in the planning! We all had a fabulous time! Working with you really took the stress out of planning the weekend’s activities and made it affordable as well."

Fiona Sayles - Newcastle - Cocktail Making & After Dark
"Cocktail Master was our activity and it was brilliant. Joe was out barman and he was fantastic and made the experience brilliant. He included the whole party and everyone said how much fun they had. And we were all surprised by how much we got to drink!
The weekend was brilliant and the bride had a fab time. Doing this way ensured there were no hick-ups along the way. This was the third hen party I have been on through UKgirlthing and each time they have improved."

Kelly Whittle - Nottingham - Pamper Me & After Dark
"Katie my party organiser was excellent. She was always prompt at replying to my numerous emails.She was very understanding and managed to sort everything out for me. Fantastic Service. Thank you!
The hotel was superb! Good facilities that were very clean and to the level expected from a 4* hotel. I was very pleased.
Our treatments were exceptional. All my guests commented upon how happy they were with the service and surprised about the quality and length of treatment received. Our lunch buffet was also excellent!
The main comment all my guests made was that the whole weekend was such good value for money. Everything was organized so well and I was so pleased that I did not have to worry about a thing. Everything ran like clockwork. I was expecting a good hen do but it turned out to be amazing and if I wasn’t so exhausted from lack of sleep I would do it all again a thousand times over. I will definitely be recommending your service to all my friends. As I have already said I cannot find any faults and I will most certainly recommend UKGirlThing."
Kelly Whittle April 2012
Gemma Toner - Leeds - Cocktail Making & Pole Dancing
"The guys from cocktail making made our first activity so much fun, they got everyone involved and everyone fully enjoyed making and drinking their own cocktails!
We had a lot of fun pole dancing!
The weekend was perfect, met and exceeded my expectations. To get all we did and the standard it was delivered, we got the package for an absolute bargain. I just hope one day I will be having an event booked through UKGirlThing for me! Thank You so much for all your help! I would 100% recommend and use UKGirlThing again. I cannot fault the weekend at all. All our party aged 21-60 years old had an absolute ball!"
Gemma Toner February 2012
Adele Shaw - Liverpool - Cocktail Making & After Dark
"We did the cocktail making class and it was FAB! Such great value for money. We had so much fun making the cocktails and sampling different ones. I liked that everyone got involved, it wasnt just a case of watching the hen all afternoon! The glass trick the barman did was brilliant and everyone was talking about it well after we had left! The 'light' buffet was really, really good! The biggest potato wedges i have ever seen! We all had ‘Hens in the City’ t-shirts/vests made to wear at this activity as the weekend theme was Sex in The City.
We had our evening meal at our Spanish resturant and again it was brilliant value for money, we had more than enough food! In fact we had too much and a lot was left behind. Our Sex in the City cocktail frocks meant we got a lot of attention and provided us with lots of stories for the morning after!
We had a fab weekend! The girls thought it was wonderful aswell!"
Adele Shaw August 2011
Laura Curtis - Bristol - After Dark

Gemma Faugh - Nottingham - Spa-rty
"The weekend was fabulous!! I couldn't have done it without Chloe and really appreciate everything that she did for us. The hotel was beyond my expectations!! Everyone had the best time and I really feel that was because how well the hen was organized (even down to pre-ordering drinks for everyone) and also how good the staff was towards us!
This is by far the best hen company that I have used and have told everyone about how good you were. The weekend was not stressful one bit as everything I had asked for had been taken care of and the hotel were always one step ahead as they knew what I needed, thanks to chloe.
We had the sparty experience booked with a buffet lunch. The beauticians were very professional and offered us a great service. The lunch was beautiful and there was so much it was fab!! The girls were eating throughout the day and were very relaxed."
Gemma Faugh September 2011
Di Brennan - Leeds - Murder Mystery, Pamper Me & Wii Night
"We did the murder mystery and the 2 people who took the event on the evening were great!! We all thoroughly enjoyed it and it surpassed our expectations, great fun and recommended. All of the girls in our group really got into it!
We had a gym and spa day and played pool games that we made up ourselves but it was a quiet and very comfortable. The bride commented that this was one of the highlights of her weekend.
We had a private function room for the weekend on both night so we did party games and took along oldskool CD’s to play, it was amazing!! We all reminissed about out youth with some raving and had a great time. I definitely recommend the party games, we didn’t even get to play on the wii!!!!
Overall, Excellent.The bride does not drink alcohol so it was tricky to arrange something that we would all like but the choice at UK girlthing made it all easy.Easy to pay and lots of choice.It was AMAZING!!!! We are a wild bunch anyway so it was nevere going to be a boring weekend but thoroughly enjoyed the murder mystry particularly and the use of the private function room."
Di Brennan April 2012
Lisa Gregory - Liverpool - Dancing & Cocktail Making

Beth Caroll - Liverpool - Cocktail Making & After Dark
"Hotel was perfect, we were all next to each other which was lovely when we were getting ready and breakfast the next morning (much needed!) was lovely.
Our Italian resturant could not be faulted, the food (three course off any of the menu!) was really good and they gave us a bottle of sparkling wine as a congratulations!
Cocktail making was good, the barman was brill and we all got to make a cocktail and the food was lovely!
The weekend was superb and I would definitely recommend you to anyone booking a hen party!"
Beth Caroll March 2012
Clare Stocks - Birmingham - Spa-rty & After Dark
"All members of party were thrilled with the hotel quality and standards! The spa was great. Everyone enjoyed and felt relaxed. The staff were brilliant. We couldnt believe how good the food was in both restaurants - Chinese and Italian. Overall I cannot believe what great value for money. Myself and the party were impressed throughout the whole weekend"
Clare Stocks March 2012
Harpreet Sahota - Manchester - Spa-rty & VIP After Dark
"Although all the girls loved everything involved in the weekend, I think our spa-rty was the part that everyone enjoyed the most. The fact that we were all together, having a few drinks, along with a few treats, playing some naughty Mr and Mrs games and ‘I have never..’ kept everyone amused. But all this while being pampered, was absolutely amazing. What more could a girl ask for. And I think every one of the girls absolutely loved their treatments. The massages, body brushing and Indian head massage went down a real treat. The ladies who came to do the treatments were friendly and really nice.
I don’t think any of us were expecting the food to be quite as good as it was. Everyone was planning on eating only a little so that they were able to get drunk once in the club, but the food was fab. And we loved the fact that we were able to take wine from the restaurant into the club as we were in the same venue. Lots of other hen parties that added to the atmosphere. Club was great. Really good atmosphere in there. A nice mix of people. Was a great night and would recommend the club to anyone. I think some of the girls were worried as we were all from different age groups from 21 to 34. But the club catered for all, there was no-one that didn’t have a good time.
Weekend was FABULOUS!!! Such value for money. We just wish we had more time. We loved it so much that we are thinking of other events when we can use UKGirlThing. My 30th is coming up later in the year, and another of my sisters is getting married next year, so I’m sure you will be hearing from us again soon. Have already started recommending."
Harpreet Sahota March 2012
Vicky Toner - Liverpool - Cocktail Making & After Dark
"Our hen weekend to Liverpool was amazing! With 24 girls all celebrating the run up to a wedding. We did not stop laughing from start to finish. I think our cheeks are still hurting! The apartments were perfect for what we required them for and the oriental was a friendly restaurant and catered well for our party. Cocktail making was excellent!"
Lauren Yallop March 2012
Charlotte McConnell - Birmingham - Cocktail Making
"Absolutely fantastic, every member of my party really enjoyed themselves and learnt about cocktail making! Our cocktail expert Abbie was brilliant, she took on our dressing up theme of clowns and continued the clowning around, making our experience truly amazing, we all left feeling very happy, excited and as if we had a new friend in Abbie. Uk Girl Thing were very helpful, everyone just wanted to make it the best it could be."
Charlotte McConnell October 2011
Kaye Roberts - Manchester - Bollywood Dancing, Cocktail Making & After Dark
"Bollywood dancing was such a laugh – everybody joined in (young and older) and had fun performing a whole routine in costumes provided by the instructor. The instructor was lovely and made sure we all felt at ease and had a good time.
Cocktail making was great fun – would definitely do again. The barman was good fun and friendly. We were running slightly behind time due to trains but he made sure we still had a great experience and even gave us extra pitchers of cocktails with our meal afterwards because we had run out of time to make a few cocktails – very thoughtful of him.
After Dark meal was fantastic for a party meal and I would definitely go back again. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was great. We had made some really specific orders which varied from the menu given, e.g. no cheese, etc… The restaurant got every order right and served the food efficiently. The club was full of party groups, e.g. birthdays and other hen parties. It was good in that it had different themed rooms, e.g. 80s, dance, etc, so there was something to suit everybody.
Excellent value for money. All of us had an amazing time (all ages). Would def. recommend Cocktail Making and Bollywood Dancing activities. Everybody that I spoke to at UK Girl Thing was really friendly and helpful. I was kept up to date and well informed throughout the whole process. Communication was prompt and friendly. Thank you for a fantastic hen party!"
Kaye Roberts October 2011
Rachel Blow - Brighton - Adonis Cabaret & Treasure Hunt
"The Treasure Hunt is a good way for people to get know each other and you’re your way around the town and shops!! Adonis was a great night out!! We all haven’t laughed so much in ages. Absolutely hysterical, everyone had a great time. Would recommend using UKGirlThing to anyone!"
Rachel Blow August 2011
Gemma Hemsley - London - Cocktail Making
"Everyone really enjoyed themselves. The staff in the bar were so friendly and our cocktail master really contributed to making the evening so enjoyable. We didn't expect much of the pizza and wedges after the session but when they arrived we were really pleasantly suprised- they were delicious and there was so much- just what you need to line your stomach. And the pizza and wedges after were lovely! Great experience, plenty to drink!
Couldn’t have asked for anything more- fantastic package, price and service! We all had a fantastic time!"
Gemma Hemsley December 2011
Joy Watterson - Cardiff - Pole Dancing & Party Bus
"Pole dancing was excellent, instructor good fun and very talented! By the end of the session we were hanging upside down from the poles and although not very elegant we at least felt that we were! Definitely worth a try!
Our party bus host found us in our restaurant and ensured we caught it - meal was well timed with the bus. Climbing on board and seeing it decked out with balloons, streamers and lights, and with the music blaring it was great fun. Our host was a good sport and encouraged us to keep dancing while the bus was moving. Definitely a great way of getting between the bars and clubs, and arriving in style, particularly if you don't know the city. Party bus is a must, adds something hilarious and a bit special to the evening.
Cardiff is stag and hen central and well worth a visit. We had a great weekend, thanks very much!"
Joy Watterson August 2011
Laura Dunster - Leeds - Karaoke, Glee Dancing & After Dark
"This was a definite highlight of the weekend. All the girls had so much fun; it exceeded everyone’s expectations. Gayle, the dance instructor, was fantastic! We couldn’t believe we were her first booking for the Glee Dancing Divas experience. She was friendly, patient and choreographed a routine that all us non-dancers could cope with! (We enjoyed it so much we intend to perform it at the wedding reception!)
Karaoke, Again we had so much fun!!
I have been impressed with the standard of service from the moment I showed an interest. The team are always quick to respond to queries and have been consistently helpful and above all friendly."
Laura Dunster July 2011
Aisling Bird - London - Butler in the Buff & VIP After Dark
"Our butler was part of the day activity who arrived promptly was very lovely and all the girls on the hen really enjoyed the butler service! Couldn’t fault anything, and he was great doing a blind champagne tasting we had planned and overseeing our Mr & Mrs Quiz too!
We had an excellent location in the Restaurant, we had a great position in an alcove off the main restaurant floor which was very busy with other hen parties, but we had a superb seat! Dinner was very lovely and enjoyed by all and it was rather odd to not have to pay any bill! We were perfectly on time to get to the club too and it was great to walk in, again with not having any club entry, fantastic to be able to get in up to 11pm.as it was perfect timing after dinner.
The service that Katie provided was excellent and it did mean that we had all our plans sorted, booked and ready for the weekend well ahead of time. The itinerary was great as it was super to have it with us on the night so we all knew the when/where we had to be!"
Aisling Bird June 2011
Mandy Keogh - Newcastle - 4x4 Off Road Driving & After Dark
"The 4x4 driving was amazing and once my mum had finished flirting with the instructor we all did quite well haha. Highlight of the whole weekend. Fantastic staff, they made the 4x4 experience a laugh throughout. I will definitely be recommending this activity to friends.
I would recommend Newcastle to ANY stag/hen group looking for a place to party. The atmosphere was amazing. People were great and the bars are better than anywhere we have ever visited. And the evening meal… what can I say, they went the extra mile to make sure we had a great night. Even got FREE bottles of wine on the table to help us celebrate!"
Mandy Keogh February 2012
Jenny Corrigan - Nottingham - River Cruise
"We had a funny moment on the Saturday night at the boats when we realised we weren't on either of the two boats in sight. It turned out our boat was further down and was exclusively for our party. It really did make the experience all the better having the place to ourselves! The staff on the boat were so friendly and made it such an enjoyable trip.
The hotel in particular was amazing! Such a beautiful place with amazing facilities. The help from the staff on the Saturday night arranging a place we could go to be together to play games with there being such a large group of us, was fantastic! They went out their way to accommodate us and for that we really are thankful!"
Jenny Corrigan August 2011
Holly Brassington - Liverpool - Spa-rty
"The Sparty was amazing. The girls were well presented, extremely professional and well organized. The treatment rooms were perfect, the treatments and treatment times were excellent and very relaxing. The food was beautiful. Again, I could not have asked for a better service than we received. Thank you to all the girls and staff at the hotel.
The After Dark restaurant was in a perfect location and the food was good value for money!
Katie was always pleasant on the phone and couldn’t help me enough with my booking. She was very efficient and responded to all my enquiries well. The staff at UK Girl thing were lovely, really helpful and provided an excellent service. I have recommended UK Girl Thing to everyone I know who is getting married."
Holly Brassington August 2011
Amiee Brinton - Nottingham - Spa-rty
"The day was perfectly planned, the ladies that provided the service on the day were wonderful, very friendly and chatty and very professional. The venue was perfect for the occasion with a large space for us to all sit and chat and a wii to play games, and then a separate room which was tranquil and relaxed for treatments."
Amiee Brinton June 2011
Adriana Klincova - Liverpool - Comedy Club, Pamper Me & Party Bus
"We went to the leisure facilities, which had lovely pool with a great jaccuzi and we also popped into the saunas! It was nice and quiet there on Saturday afternoon, just about 7 of us. Some of my friends also had a massage or other treatments which were priced very reasonably for what we expected (Indian Head massage £25).
Comedy night was great! Comedians were very funny, it was a nice, small, intimate setting, which we really enjoyed. Comedians very funny without making you feel awkward. Raj, our Hen had a great time and even had a dance off with the host!
Party Bus was just a good laugh, it definitely added to a great party mood! If there is another party for me to organize, you will be the first one I will call!!! Excellent personal service, brilliant value for money, excellent payment conditions - RECOMMENDED ANYTIME!"
Adriana Klincova June 2011
