    Swynford paddocks hotel in liquidation

    ive heard Swynford paddocks has gone bust! I really hope not too many brides have lost vast amounts of money, so sad when this happens as many people book and pay deposits in advance.

    it makes you wary of booking up early!

    One would hope that people buy wedding insurance for this.  Also, that the hotel would have a legal responsibility to refund those deposits, or that whoever takes over the hotel honours the prior arrangements. 

    Honestly, this is a risk anyone booking a wedding venue takes, and it shouldn't effect your decision to book up early.  If it's a good venue it will be booked far in advance, so if you want a wedding there you have no choice.

    I've been there for a wedding and although it was nice - a nice outside area for the ceremony, and lovely rooms inside, it was very much 'faded glory'.

    Is a shame for anyone who has lost out on their wedding though.

    The website says closed until April 2012 as undergoing renovations.  I hope this is the case.

    i do too! from what i can gather it used to be called swynford paddocks and then it was re-brought by someone else who called it swynford hotel, now whether thats the mix up and swynford paddocks went into administration and swynford hotel is its new name!

    lets hope so for any of the brides who are getting married there.

    We wanted to look round here and emailed them twice and it took them four months to reply to my email, by which time we had planned half the wedding including the venue! I really hope it isn't the case for those who have booked their wedding there.

    Cornwell, I don't want to worry you further but a quick google took me this site http://www.companiesintheuk.co.uk/ltd/swynford-paddocks-hotel which says liquidation as of 9th March. There are lots of other websites saying the same thing.

    I'd get onto them asap.
