    Our day really was everything we could of wished f

    I still can’t believe we are married ????????it’s all still so surreal.

    Our day really was everything we could of wished for & more. We were extremely blessed with the sun shining on us, rather than thunderstorms which were forecasted for our day.

    It was so wonderful to have you as our wedding coordinator, we felt you went above and beyond to help ensure we had the best day & we so appreciate you being there on our day & for everything you did to look after/support us.

    Zsolt is a very special man indeed, I can so see why he is a manager of the banqueting team. Zsolt, in my opinion, cares about what he does & this really shines through in how he deals with people.

    Zsolt’s amazing nature is just second to none & we are most grateful to him for all he did for us. One other staff member really stood out for us, Reece he is just so lovely, so helpful & attentive which again people like him do really make an experience.

    Personally I’m one for appreciating good customer service, I really believe it’s the people who you deal with in any experience who can make or break it.

    Amazing Day!

    I don’t even know how to put into words what an amazing day we had. Everything at the hotel was just perfect.
    Our guests all said what a beautiful location it was. We were so lucky with the weather as it just showed the hotel off beautifully.
    We are still buzzing from the day.
    Thank you so much for all the room upgrades. Jessica the biggest thank you to you and your team who all helped to make our day truly memorable.
    Also, thank you for the lovely words in your card.
    You’ve been so patient with all our incessant questions and I hope I didn’t drive you too mad.
    We will definitely be back next year for our anniversary ??

    Sarah & Consu

    From the moment we visited Alexander House Hotel and met Helen we knew this was the venue that we wanted for our dream day. Helen was amazing in all the planning stages, always happy to answer our constant questions and give advice and helped us deliver the most beautiful Wedding. All the staff were so friendly, the food was delicious, and all the aspects provided such as the Toastmaster made the day stress free, and run so smoothly. Such a beautiful venue, fantastic staff, we will never forget the best day of our lives. Thank you Helen and the team at Alexander House Hotel.

    Amazing!

    We got married at Alexander House on Saturday 10 March. We are so pleased we chose Alexander House - the service we received was second to none. Every step of the organisational process was made easier by our wedding co-ordinator, Hannah Evaroa. Hannah is so professional and very patient (we had lots of questions!). She took the time to get to know us and made many excellent suggestions - we were totally at ease relying on Hannah and her team to take care of things for us. Our wedding day was the best day of our lives. Alexander House looked beautiful in the sunshine - it was amazing to be outside in the stunning garden for our champagne reception. The wedding breakfast was delicious, we had a food tasting in advance of the big day and the chef was very kind letting us be more involved with the food choices. Our evening reception was really enjoyable - all of our guests have commented on what a wonderful day they had at an amazing venue. Thank you Alexander House (and expecially Hannah!). We wish we could do it all again!

    Wedding Ceremony - 12th September 2015

    My husband and I got married at the beautiful Alexander House on 12th September 2015. Jessica was our brilliant wedding coordinator and from start to finish the whole process was wonderful , even when there were some last minute changes a few days before the wedding, Alexander House were more than accommodating. The whole day was perfect and the staff were so friendly and always willing to help.
    Beautiful location, gorgeous venue, amazing staff and I would not hesitate to recommend Alexander House for your wedding.

    Beautiful Hotel - Ceremony 09.08.2015

    Thank you to Alexander House for the most magical wedding day for our daughter. The hotel is just gorgeous and we were lucky enough with the weather to have the ceremony outside in the Gazebo with drinks on the terrace. Our wedding planner Rebecca was brilliant, just so helpful and caring. The service and food at the wedding breakfast was outstanding. We cannot recommend this wonderful hotel highly enough. Fantastic.

    Gorgeous venue!

    My Husband and myself loved this hotel before we decided on it as a venue for our wedding which took place a month ago. Alexander house hotel has absolutely everything you could ask for, beauty, relaxation and amazing staff members to help with your every need.
    we started planning our wedding 2 years ago and the staff who were with us throughout our whole experience couldn't of done more for us, anything we asked for wasn't ever asking too much.
    The day itself came together without a hitch and we can thank the hotel for this.
    The one thing all our guests commented on was how amazing the food was during our wedding breakfast and evening buffet a few of them still talk about it to this day!
    I could carry on and rave about this place more but the minute you step foot in the door your mind will be made up.
    We are already planning our next break at the hotel.

    We had an amazing wedding day, the sun came out and Alexander House made it even more special. Our guests loved the venue and couldn’t fault the food or the staff. Thank you. Breakfast the next day was wonderful too, as was using the spa. The Henley suite is beautiful and absolutely amazing.

    Thank you for all of your help and support with the planning, you made it all very easy to plan our special day.

    Thank you, Jaideep and the other folk at the Alexander House Hotel for helping making Saturday such a perfect day for Laura & Becka. How you managed to organise such wonderful weather I’ll never know. Seriously though, it couldn’t have gone smoother, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen two happier people than my daughter and daughter-in-law. You’ve helped us all create joyful memories that will stay with us forever.

    We loved the hotel, and there’s no doubt we’ll be back in the future to pamper ourselves in those wonderful facilities of yours.

    Amazing!

    The help and assistance that we received on our day was amazing. The fact that you were able to handle the slightly expanded guest list that we had ended up with was fantastic.

    All of you at Alexander House helped to make our wedding day very special and I feel like one of the privileged few who got to use such a beautiful venue and have such helpful staff that ensured Daniel and I were well looked after. Thank you

    Will Highly Recommend You

    Alexander House work hard to make sure the day runs without a hitch and pride themselves in quality service and quality food. We had an amazing wedding day; the food was top class and the staff worked really hard to make the day special. Alexander House is such a nice venue and because it isn't too big and our wedding not too many, it felt more personal and intimate. Thank you for all your help too with everything - I particularly liked the personalised menus and thank you for changing the table list so quickly on the day. The honeymoon suite was stunning too and my mum and I even got to enjoy the hot tub outside the day before! We would recommend this hotel 100% to any couple for their wedding day!
