Best wedding day ever!!!
By Z Bagwell, on 10 May 2015
We had our wedding at the Cambridge Belfry on 2nd of May, and we honestly think it couldn't have gone any better. We had a fantastic time, and everyone at the hotel went out of their way to help us and make us feel welcome on every possible occasion. Lucy, the wedding coordinator, has been amazing throughout the planning, always quick to respond on the phone or by email – really, she made everything so much easier and fun for us!
We had 40 rooms booked for our guests, and Lucy has handled our requests flawlessly together with the central reservation team. Most of our guests commented on how nice the rooms were and how nice the spa was. Our suite (the Butler) was beautiful, the big bathroom and the jacuzzi was gorgeous, and we were treated like royalty by the reception staff. Definitely a winner!
Our weekend started on Friday, where we had arranged a BBQ for the two families to mingle the day before the big event, which was a big hit. The wedding day itself was dreamy. Callum made sure everything ran on time, he was constantly checking to see if everyone was happy, I really felt like we were properly looked after well. The day went by virtually stress-free for us, all thanks to Callum and his team, and their hard work. The food was amazing, people specifically commented on how good everything tasted, and we were very, very impressed.
I wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend the Belfry and its staff to any couple who are looking for a wedding venue. Honestly, they went above and beyond anything we could have asked for, and we are very grateful to all of the staff for making our wedding day truly amazing and wonderfully unforgettable.
Wedding at The Belfry - Would definitely recommend
By Gina and Stuart Taylor, on 07 May 2015
We held our wedding at The Cambridge Belfry.
From start to finish i cannot fault any aspect of the service we were provided with. Throughout our visits to the venue for planning aspects of the day we didn’t come across one unhelpful or unfriendly member of staff. Everyone at the hotel went out their way to assist us with everything we needed
I (Gina) stayed at the hotel and got ready there, and again myself and the bridal party found the service faultless - the extra touches (chocolates/champagne with dinner etc) which were provided just made the day all that more special.
All of the staff involved in assisting the event on, before and after the day were superb. Everyone knew their role and executed it without fuss or panic, which ensured everyone was super calm and relaxed on the day! Nothing was too much to ask and all friends and family that attended the day and evening commented on what a great day they had and how much they liked the venue
Particular thanks to Lucy, Wedding and Events Planner, who was fantastic in keeping in touch and ensuring everything was planned exactly how we wanted; To Ann and Callum, who were great with me, and getting everything organised and moved etc with such precision and calm. All in all though the whole team were great and really contributed to a great day. Thank you.

My husband and I got married at The Cambridge Belfry in April 2015, and we cannot praise the hotel and staff enough. Lucy, the hotel's wedding planner helped with all the organisation, and she was always available to answer any queries we had, very quickly. She made sure everything was sorted for our big day and introduced us to Callum and Anne, who would be running the day.
The day itself couldn't have been more perfect, Callum was our master of ceremonies and it all ran so smoothly. The food was excellent for the wedding breakfast and everyone was served very quickly, and the evening buffet had a huge selection . The day was exactly how we had pictured it!
We would recommend the hotel to any couples looking for a venue around Cambridge, the hotel packages are great value for money. Plus, your pictures around the lake will look fantastic!!

I did not have to worry about a thing
By Leanne Clarke, on 18 Feb 2014
Myself and my husband booked our wedding reception at The Belfry 18 months in advance of our big day, the staff were always happy to help with any questions or queries we had throughout that time, whether it via email or in person. Closer to the event the personalised service we received was impeccable and we couldn't fault it in any way. We were able to organise the day to exactly what we had hoped for, including personalised drinks orders for the wedding breakfast, which went down a treat with the people in question.
On the day, the whole wedding party felt looked after by all of the staff, who made sure everyone was happy and always had a drink in their hand and a smile on their face. The food was simply amazing, everyone has since told me on several occasions how nice it was. My experience as a bride was unforgettable, I didn't have to worry about a thing. I had full confidence in the team and they did us both proud. I have been recommending them to everyone that will listen since! Our main team contacts were Kirsten (who helped with all the organisation up until the day), she is very friendly, very efficient and always happy to answer any questions I came up with. On the day we had both Chris and Stuart who made sure everything went as planned and we cannot thank all three enough for giving us the most amazing day.
Everything Ran Smoothly
By Sarah Wellington, on 14 Feb 2014
From the planning, to the wedding day, everything ran smoothly. Kirsten was always on hand to answer any queries we had, and ensure everything that needed to be done was done. She even helped us sort our table plan, which was so helpful. On the big day, Andrew was amazing, he was there when we needed him and ensured the whole day ran faultlessly. I can't fault anything the Belfry did. They ensured our day was amazing and everything we wanted it to be. Thank you for making our day so special.
Amazing Staff and Welcoming Atmosphere
By Gemma Stannard, on 14 Feb 2014
The Belfry Hotel is a lovely venue but what makes this place exceptional are the amazing staff and the welcoming atmosphere they create. I held my wedding at The Belfry and even now a month afterwards my guests are still commenting on how amazing the day was, how great the staff managed the event and how they cant wait to have another meal at The Belfry. If you want a venue that is clean and welcoming, food that is cooked and served to a high standard and staff who really care then this is the place you should book! Thank you so much to everyone who made our day as amazing as it was in particular thanks to Kirsten and Andrew.
Mr & Mrs Stannard.
Could not Fault a Thing
By Rebecca Gilligan, on 14 Feb 2014
We chose the Belfry because of the good size function rooms, the modern interior and the lake area which we thought would be ideal for our wedding photos. We chose a wedding package to suit our needs and budget; our wedding organiser was very good at replying to all of my emails and phone calls as we had lots of questions which were promptly handled. Leading up to our big day, our wedding organiser made sure she had every detail of the day and how we wanted the day to run. The actual wedding day ran so smoothly and the hotel staff were brilliant. All our guests commented on how good the whole day was, we honestly couldnt fault a thing. We were given a main contact on the day who dealt with everything; he organised timings for the meal, photos etc. and told us where we needed to be next! I would definitely recommend the Belfry for any couple looking for a wedding venue.
The Food Was Delicious
By Gemma Stillwell, on 14 Feb 2014
We had a fantastic day, from the very first appointment to the morning after the wedding, the staff could not have done any more to make it run as smoothly as it did. No request was too big, and considering we had major allergy sufferers, asked to bring a dog and make lots of mess, this didn't phase anyone. The food was delicious and served by friendly staff. I would not hesitate to recommend this venue for any occasion.
Without a Hitch
By Clair Stroud, on 14 Feb 2014
"Planning a wedding can be a stressful endeavour but the team at The Cambridge Belfry ensured that the process was a pleasurable experience. Our wedding planner (Kirsten) was professional and a joy to work with. Nothing was too much trouble, including providing meals for fussy eaters, lactose intolerant guests and those that needed gluten-free alternatives. Any potential issues were communicated promptly with an alternative solution provided. Once handed over to our co=ordinator for the day (Andrew), we were put at ease and made to feel like the most important guests in the hotel. The day passed without hitch, due to impeccable co-ordination skills and great flexibility. The food was great and, all in all, the day was a great success. I would highly recommend The Cambridge Belfry as a wedding venue of superior quality."
The Most Amazing Wedding Day
By Nicole Keel, on 14 Feb 2014
"We cannot thank the staff at The Cambridge Belfry enough for the most amazing wedding day! The run up to the wedding was so smooth and Kirsten the wedding co-ordinator was amazing with communication and answering my hundreds of questions. From the second I walked through the door I was made to feel like royalty, the staff were amazing and attentive, they could not help enough. The day ran so smoothly by Andrew and the team, we have never been to a wedding that has run on time and wasn't rushed, however Andrew and the team kept everything on time and relaxed. The food was incredible, and everyone had such an amazing day! Thank you so much to everybody at The Cambridge Belfry."
By Shannon Van Aswegen, on 14 Feb 2014
"Due to living abroad, I didn't actually meet Kirsten the wedding co-ordinator until two days before the wedding! I had the extra stress of my fiancée being in Afghanistan for 7 months before the wedding, so arrangements were quite slow and difficult at times from my end. Kirsten was always there for me at the end of an email or on the phone, and happy to advise when I needed her help, and also equally happy to accommodate my requests. She is a credit to your hotel."
