Absolutely perfect, in every way

Audleys Wood Hotel was the first and only wedding venue we looked at, from the moment we entered for a wedding showcase we were both sold, we fell in love with the beautiful venue and friendly and welcoming staff, we knew this was the perfect place for us to get married.
The whole planning process was made so much easier having Charlotte and her team guide us through each step and answering any question no matter how big or small! All of our requests were catered for and there is literally nothing more we could have wished for on the day, all of our dreams came true!
We were able to add our own decor to the ceremony room and pavilion such as using our own flower arch, providing packets of tissues for the guests, making our own centrepieces and having a welcome table with a guest book, photos etc etc. Being able to include decor in keeping with our theming made the day even more special.
All of the guests have commented on how welcoming, friendly and accommodating all the staff were, nothing felt like too much bother and everyone was always on hand to make sure everything went to plan. There were so many little things on the day that Charlotte and the team did to make us feel special on our wedding day.
The food was outstanding and we've had multiple comments from guests to say how much they enjoyed their meal. We were made to feel so welcome when we came for our menu tasting and Head Chef Leon gave us so much time to talk through our preferences with regards to food and made me so happy that I could have chocolate brownie as a pudding option despite it being on the summer menu!!
The day ran perfectly to time and that was all thanks to the Toast Master. I really don't envy him trying to keep everyone to time and he did it with such kindness and patience! He took away all of the worries I had on the day and I really was just able to truly switch off from the planning and stress and enjoy the day.
Audleys Wood gave us the perfect wedding without us having to break the bank, we loved every minute and I am so sad it's now all over!

Our wedding at Audleys Wood

We booked our wedding for March 2024 back in October 2022 at Audleys Wood. We just had that feeling as soon as we had driven up the driveway! Considering it鈥檚 in Basingstoke you wouldn鈥檛 think it at all in the grounds/ hotel. All the people at Audleys were great considering how many questions I asked in the process! Charlotte was great as was our toastmaster on the day David. We had lots of changes which were accommodated well and the day went about as smoothly as it could have considering the horrendous weather! The bridal suit and honeymoon suit included in our package made everything easier and considering I ran out of time on the day to pack things up everything was moved between rooms. The reception room looked great and the food was lovely. Thank you to everyone at Audleys for making our special day! Jess and Ollie

Such a magical venue and amazing experience

This was such an amazing venue! We booked early July 2022 (for a wedding Oct 2023) and we had such a quick response from the wedding planning team at Audleys wood. We toured around the venue and then we decided to book. The team was excellent at replying to hundreds of my questions and were really clear about timelines and everything that needed to be done. We had a food tasting in March which was a lovely experience and made our food choices much easier. As our guest count was over 60 the hotel provided a toastmaster to help run the day and David was amazing. He handled everything and helped our day run perfectly.
Both of the suites we had during our stay were amazing and really made the weekend even more magical and memorable.
I originally fell in love with the conservatory room and it was even better than I could have imagined on our wedding day. This venue is truly special and the staff made the day so wonderful, I couldn't recommend it more!

The Perfect Wedding

I highly recommend Audleys Wood Hitel for your wedding. Our day was just perfect. The staff were kind and efficient. The food was lovely, especially the beef! The venue is stunning. We got married in the conservatory and all our guests commented on how lovely it is. I cannot fault anything about the place. Thank you for wonderful day. We always say it was perfect!

Simply Perfect, In Every Way!

I couldn鈥檛 recommend Audleys Wood highly enough for your wedding. From start to finish the staff ensured everything ran smoothly, making sure myself and the groom had nothing to worry about on the day.
Zoe our wedding coordinator helped with any questions I had throughout the run up to our wedding. She鈥檚 an absolute star!
Michael our coordinator on the day is a legend. A big smile and happy to help with anything!
The food was incredible, all our guests commented on how much they enjoyed it too. Then to top off such a great day, an overnight stay in a wonderful suite. Just stunning!

Through emails, meetings and phone calls they were always o hand to help with any query or request.
Wedding coordinating, toast master were a dream the day wouldn鈥檛 have gone so smoothly without them!
We had the most beautiful day with memories to treasure for a life time.

What a Amazing Level of service by Audley's wood.

We got married at Audleys Wood Hotel in march, and the whole experience was terrific from start to finish. Neil's pre-wedding meetings were brilliant, and I would recommend Neil to anyone. He is a massive asset to the company.
We were updated thoroughly with every step from the start of the booking, and any questions were always welcomed. My dad and I stayed the night before the wedding and were made to feel welcome from the moment we walked in. We also had the chance to view the beautiful garden pavilion on the day, and all of the team were communicated with to ensure our needs were fulfilled for our special day. On our wedding day, the staff welcomed and accommodated all of our wedding parties. Nothing was too much hassle. Everyone greeted us with a smile and asked if everything was going well. The food and drink were exceptional, with perfect portion sizes and catered for all. The rooms are so elegant and very spacious. The beds are comfortable, and the rooms are very well looked after. Overall I would highly recommend this venue and have done it already to friends who are in the search for their wedding venue.

Audleys Wood Hotel

We got married at Audleys Wood Hotel and the whole experience was amazing start to finish.

From the start of booking we were updated thoroughly with every step and any questions were always welcomed. Myself and my bridesmaids stayed the night before the wedding and witnessed some of the set up of the day and all of the team were communicated with to ensure our needs were fulfilled for our special day.

On our wedding day the staff were welcoming and accommodating to all of our wedding party. Nothing was too much hassle, everyone greeted us with a smile and asked if everything was going well. If we had any issues they would be promptly be sorted. The food and drink was exceptional, very good portion sizes and catered for all.

The rooms are so elegant and very spacious. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are very well looked after.

Overall I would highly recommend this venue for any function/event.

Faultless service

We initially picked Audleys for their stunning conservatory and pavilion. We have since been blown away with every detail of our wedding. From the planning services by Zoe, to the hotel staff, cleanliness of rooms, amazing food and organisation of the big day. We could not fault a thing! Nothing was too big a task and all staff were very accommodating.
We will definitely be recommending Audleys and will be back!

Perfection

If there was an option for more than 5 stars I would select it. We knew when we booked our wedding in the summer of 2020 that COVID was not yet over but took the risk and it more than paid off! Fortunately for us we didn鈥檛 have to change our wedding date and there were no restrictions in place at the time. All the staff made the venue feel very welcoming, clean and safe each time we went there from the initial booking/viewing, right up to the day itself which was great as we were inviting elderly relatives and wanted them to enjoy the day but have peace of mind that they were safe too.

Our wedding co-ordinator Zoe was fantastic from start to finish, she was really easy to speak to, always available to speak to when we needed and was full of great suggestions and ideas for us which really helped the day be as magical as it could be, 11/10

Audleys Wood is beautiful, tucked away in a lovely woodland area with lots of various types of trees of many colours. Due to time of year we had the full autumnal experience which has really made our photos stand out, all the grounds are lovely and great to take a stroll round at all times of year.

The venue itself is something to behold, we had our ceremony in the conservatory room, with its tall peaked ceiling and floor to ceiling bay windows it was the perfect set up! It caters for many guests with lovely views of the grounds and woodland.
We had the evening reception in the pavilion which again was set up amazingly and very spacious, we especially liked having the seating, dance floor and bar all in one room so everyone was together, there was plenty of space to have extras such as a sweet cart, photo booth, treat and hot chocolate table and more!

The food here is second to none. We knew we were in for something good when we had our menu tasting, the variety of options is impressive, the presentation and taste of the food was flawless. We had over 70 day guests and all have said how good the food was, there was no waiting around and it didn鈥檛 feel like a production line either. To top it off the rooms here are lovely, even the smallest rooms are generously sized and all include breakfast as well.

I cannot stress enough how lovely all the staff were. Even the after service was fantastic and my father accidentally left his shirt in the room and didn鈥檛 realise until he got home, spoke to Kai on reception who promptly arranged for it to be mailed back to him and it arrived next working day.

If you鈥檙e looking for the perfect wedding at the perfect venue, I would highly recommend Zoe and her team at Audleys wood, they鈥檝e been flawless throughout and an absolute pleasure to deal with. We will definitely go back for the food again and hope to attend future weddings here too!

Outstanding!

We had our wedding here 26th August 2021 after rearranging the date due to Covid! Zoe was incredible the whole time from our first date in 2020 through to our actual wedding day in 2021. No question was too much trouble, and she made the process of getting married her so easy!

On the wedding day itself, every single member of staff was incredible. A special mention to Sam who is a real credit to the venue and was absolutely outstanding on the wedding day and ensured everything ran smoothly and was incredibly helpful right from the morning all the way through to midnight when the party ended!

The was insane and the Chef is the nicest man ever! Every single guest loved all the food, from the 3 course meal to the buffet in the evening!

We also had a private room for breakfast the next day at the venue as we had so many guests stay the night of the wedding! The private breakfast room really finished off the whole experience and really made it extra special for me and partner to be able to enjoy breakfast with all of our wedding guests before their departure!

I would definitely recommend this venue for any one that wants to get married all in one place and have a lush day that runs smoothly

Absolutely incredible!

We got married on 19th august on the forever Thursdays package. The whole staff at the hotel from reception to our wedding planner Zoe hoynes were amazing! Everyone is so polite and friendly and so professional.
We met our chef the day before and he was so friendly and happy, the food was amazing and everyone loved it. We also had a private meal booked for 40 people the night before and everything was brought out quickly and nothing missed or any issues.
We was made to feel like royalty the whole time we was there.
On the day of the wedding everything was done exactly how we wanted it and when we went into view the pavilion it was stunning and nothing needed changing.
We extended until 2am and had a silent disco for the last 2 hours which went down amazingly with the guest and we had so much fun. The staff even joined in walking round with some headsets on and glow sticks which made us laugh so much whilst still serving at the bar.
Zoe has been incredible for us answering all our stupid questions and going through everything in such detail, she is so lovely and easy to talk to and came to see us when we arrived and before we left. We could not falter anything and we would 100% recommend this venue to anyone, the garden pavilion is just stunning and needs very little extra work which helps keep the cost down.
We will never be able to thank the staff enough for everything they did to make our day so special, we will defiantly be coming back for our anniversaries in the years to come!!!

Amazing wedding - long awaited

After having postponed almost 4 times I can honestly say that Audleys Wood have earn鈥檛 this amazing review. From the first moment I went to go and view the hotel I immediately fell in love with it. It has all the things I was looking for, a rustic feel with a hotel and a marquee. Unfortunately due to the pandemic we, like many other couples had to postpone multiple times - but the communication from the hotel was second to none, no issue was too big with almost daily e-mails from the team.

Our co-ordinator Charlotte kept us informed and up to date of all changes and it was a pleasure to meet and feel like she was genuinely excited to help us plan our big day. They were incredibly flexible with all our date changes and ensuring we could have the wedding of our dreams.

The staff were soo helpful in assisting the set up that the day went soo smoothly - my only criticism - I felt that it went to quickly 馃ぃ. All our guests commented on the hotel and the rooms. The food was amazing and they even made sure that my Husband and I were provided welcome drinks and nibbles that the rest of the guests had whilst we were busy having pictures taken.

Everybody was soo helpful in particularly at check out the next day when my Uncle - who is terminally ill was not well enough to check out on time - they extended his room at no extra charge.

I would do it all again without a second thought and I wouldn鈥檛 have changed a thing about the hotel or staff. I can鈥檛 wait to see my pictures. We will definitely be returning on our anniversary for a meal and overnight stay.

Myself and my husband finally had our big day on 29th July 2021 and were lucky enough to get married at Audleys Wood hotel.
Unfortunately it wasn鈥檛 a straight forward experience due to the COVID 19 pandemic; we were originally supposed to have our wedding day on 30th July 2020 but of course this wasn鈥檛 meant to be. This was obviously a stressful time but it was made so so so much easier by the amazing staff at Audleys wood hotel, in particular our wedding coordinator Neal who was there to answer any questions we had and provided us with reassurance every step of the way.
I cannot thank Neal enough for helping to make our wedding possible and for keeping us both so calm and reassured throughout the whole process.
The wedding day itself was absolutely perfect, our guests were extremely impressed with the beautiful venue and could see exactly why we fell in love with it. However, the main comments were regarding the staff, they were truly amazing! Nothing was too much trouble, they were all approachable, friendly and played such a huge part in making our day so perfect! A special thanks to Kai for going above and beyond, for being so friendly and super helpful! Also, a huge thank you to the wonderful chef for the beautiful food, the waiting/bar staff and of course the amazing manager on the day (whose name escapes me, sorry!!)
Our toastmaster Dave (whose services were included in our wedding package from the hotel) was also incredible throughout the day and worked tirelessly to ensure the day ran smoothly, Dave you鈥檙e a star!
All in all, we cannot recommend Audleys wood enough and are very grateful to them for giving us the best wedding day we could have hoped for.

Perfect day anyone could have wished for!

We could not have wished for more on our wedding day.

We booked our wedding at this beautiful venue 4 years ago and during the whole process, we were looked after and listened to throughout our journey.

Our wedding day was better than we could have ever imagined. Staff were so helpful with all our guests and nothing was too much to ask. Our grandmother is disabled and staff went above and beyond to help.

The venue set up everything on the day so we did not have to lift a finger which allowed for us to have such a relaxed and stress free wedding. We could not recommend Audleys Wood more - anyone looking for a venue should definitely consider it as you won鈥檛 be disappointed!

Rooms were spacious, clean and allowed for such a good night sleep too!

We will be back for our anniversary each year for sure!

Thank you for all that you have done for us, we will never forget this day!
