Thank you all for making my day go smoothly!
Venue Service

By Lisa & Sam Hill, on 10 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 22 Feb 2019

We chose the Chilworth manor for our wedding reception (I got married in Walt Disneyworld) its beautiful estate and grand architecture what drew us to it. We had not ever assisted in a wedding so had no idea what to expect. Georgina was our planner and was happy to answer all questions from the booking date all the way up until handover, believe me there are a lot of questions that come to you in the middle of the night that need addressing, she was able to answer everything and if one of my odd requests was a bit out of the box she was happy to investigate for me. We chose a different option to the standard wedding breakfast menu, we went for a roast dinner and I have to say I was extremely impressed, everyone's food was hot, arrived the same time and was a good portion size (not piddily sample size) The running of the day went pretty smoothly and Kata our wedding day Co-Ordinator was brilliant, he was there when you needed him and worked in the shadows when he wasn't. He insured the day ran smoothly and made sure everything was in place for the turn around's. The buffet food was also delicious (or so I am told, I was to busy to even get a chance to try some) Cannot fault the reception at all if I am honest, the only issue was there was another bride getting ready who wanted to go down stairs the same time as I made my entrance (Nan is partially blind and didn't want her thinking the other bride was me) but that was quickly sorted out, Thank you all for making my day go smoothly :)

Would not hesitate recommending them
Venue Service

By Simon & Michelle Hughes, on 31 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 22 Sep 2018

From our first visit to Chilworth Manor we found the staff extremely helpful and friendly. Not really knowing what we wanted for our special day, we needed someone we could trust from the start, helping us to decide on a design and further more manage our day so we could enjoy it without any hassle. Chilworth Manor (Georgina Place) was excellent in her knowledge and planning and really took her time to go through the whole day in great detail and listening to our ideas and trying to fit them all in. The quote was simple and straight forward to understand and no shocking extra costs, once we agreed on a set-up. Having our wedding and ceremony all in one place was also very well managed by Chilworth Manor (Vali), they were always one step ahead and at no point did myself or my wife ever need to ask or check what was happening. The food, both for the breakfast meal and the evening buffet was exceptional, all our guests commented on how nice and plentiful it was. We both had an amazing day, both the venue and staff played a big part in delivering this for us. We were so glad we chose Chilworth Manor for what was our biggest day and we wouldn't hesitate recommending them to friends and family in the future. A Very Big Thank You to all the staff at Chilworth Manor, especially Georgina and Vali for all their hard work they put in for our big day.

By Jo & Justin Woodley, on 01 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Sep 2018

We had our wedding at the beautiful Chilworth Manor on the 8th September 2018. It was absolutely amazing and everything we had always dreamed of. Jo Bennett took care of the organisation of our wedding and she was absolutely brilliant every step of the way. Jo was always speedy in her communications and with her attention to detail, we always felt that our plans for our big day were in safe hands. In the last few months leading up to the wedding, we had a few meetings with Jo and she was so professional and organised. Jo even helped dress the coach house reception suite on the morning of the wedding with our table decorations and favours - everything looked perfect!! Jo is a credit to your hotel, she works very hard and is brilliant at her job. Thank you so much Jo! ?? On the big day everything ran like clockwork. We were greeted at the door by Jo and Vali before going out to the beautiful grounds to enjoy drinks and canapés on the patio. Vali then led us to the coach house suite for the reception. The food was absolutely delicious and we had a number of comments from our guests about how nice it was. Adam also helped look after the food service at the reception and both Vali and Adam worked very hard to make sure everything was in order. Vali asked if we wanted a separate room for our guests for the breakfast the next day which was a very nice touch! Thank you so much Chilworth Manor for our amazing wedding day, we had such a special day and we can’t thank you enough for everything!! We would thoroughly recommend Chilworth Manor as a venue for weddings/special occasions. Jo & Justin Woodley

Everything I wished for and more

The day was amazing! Everything I wished for and more. All our guests commented on how lovely the food was. A massive thank you to Georgina for all of her help in organising and thank you to Adam for all his help on the day. He was just amazing and made the day run so smoothly. It was the best day ever and I can’t thank you all enough. Thank you for everything x

Went without a hitch
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Ramsden, on 23 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2018

We would like to extend our warmest and deepest thank you’s to all at Chilworth Manor for making our wedding such an amazing day. And a special thank you to Jo Bennett who was our coordinator building up to the day. We booked the Lord Selborne for our ceremony and Coach House for the reception. We used Luminique for some decoration and chair covers, which Jo matched perfectly with our colour scheme. Numerous meetings and plenty of advice was very welcomed as we are a young couple, not familiar with wedding setup. The menu tasting was fantastic - we found it difficult to choose, especially for 80+ guests. Jo was on hand every time we visited and gave us every bit of knowledge she could which benefited us immensely. Once we had selected the menu and received a room layout, we arranged with Jo to decorate a table the day before and deliver our whopping cake, which was no problem at all. The whole day went without a hitch and we met Adam the day before, who would be our contact throughout the day. He deserves a special thanks as he correctly timed the ceremony music and ensured the rooms were set up correctly. Adam announced us into the wedding breakfast and introduced the speeches. The evening reception was just as great. We used the resident DJ and the team were very accommodating. All in all, it was an amazing time with family and friends in amazingly luxurious settings/grounds. Would we recommend anyone to get married there? Unquestionably yes! Even before the wedding when people asked “where are you getting married?”, and we replied Chilworth Manor, the responses were WOW that’s going to be great. Thank you all for making our day go to plan and so memorable.

Best decision we ever made.
Venue Service

By Natasha & Scott Alden, on 14 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 27 Jul 2018

Choosing the Chilworth Manor Hotel for our wedding reception was the best decision we ever made. Beautiful was the word constantly used by our guests to describe the hotel, grounds and decoration of the Lord Selbourne Suite. Jo was incredible right from the very beginning. She was always so organised and efficient which helped alleviate lots of stress in the build up to our truly magical day. We would also like to say a huge thanks to all the staff who made our day run so smoothly. If you’re ever thinking of getting married, do not hesitate to book this stunning Edwardian Manor House as you will not be disappointed! Kind Regards Scott

Big Thank You
Venue Service

By Jan & Steve, on 09 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Jun 2018

Just a little note to say a Big Thank You for helping us celebrate our first evening together as Husband and Wife. Everyone really enjoyed themselves, the food and service were excellent and all we had from everyone were really great reports. The staff couldn't have been more helpful in tailoring the day to suit our needs, (including last minute arrangements to watch the football). Love Jan and Steve Lidstone

We had the best day and loved every second
Venue Service

By Kayleigh & Simon Fowle, on 09 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Jun 2018

We had the best day! It was an amazing day and we loved every second. All of the months of planning were definitely worth it and we couldn’t be happier with how the day went. We would both like to thank you for all of your help coordinating the day and the care you have taken in getting every part of our day perfect for us. The day ran seamlessly and we would definitely recommend Chilworth Manor as a wedding venue. We haven’t had to worry about a thing thanks to you and we are grateful for your assistance with each and every request. We would also like to say a huge thank you to Adam, he worked very hard and nothing was too much trouble for him, and the other members of staff on the day were also excellent and very attentive. The hotel has been professional and accommodating throughout, from booking our date right to the very end of our wedding day. We have also had some great feedback from the band to say how well they were looked after at the hotel. We look forward to coming back soon. We wish you every success in the future! Kayleigh & Simon (Mr and Mrs Fowle)

Thoroughly recommend and could not fault
Venue Service

By Jackie and Ed Webber, on 09 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Jun 2018

Thank you so much for all your hard work. Vali was excellent all day and Chilworth Manor is lucky to have him, if he performs like this consistently. You were great too Ashleigh and we feel blessed for having chosen such a nice hotel with great staff. It was a weight off of our minds knowing that as soon as we got to the hotel everything would be taken care of and it was. I would thoroughly recommend a wedding at Chilworth Manor (not that I'll be doing it again) and we have loads of pictures which look fabulous. We all had a great day yesterday and could not fault the hotel at all. The staff were amazing, the food was amazing and everyone was so impressed with the hotel! Thanks again for yours, Vali's and the rest of the staff's outstanding contribution to our day. Much love Jackie and Ed

Wow what an amazing Wedding Day we had. We cannot thank Jo Bennett enough for her tremendous planning, professionalism & organisational skills. She totally understood our needs and dreams and nothing was too much trouble! Jo gave us ideas and thought of things we hadn’t even considered. She worked tirelessly to ensure we had the BEST DAY EVER! Her communication and reassurance are just what you need, totally puts your mind at rest to know your day is in safe hands. Alex Parsons on the evening before and on the day worked his socks off to ensure everything went to our plans and wishes. He was always on hand to ensure everything was on time. He made sure my friends/family had a great time, always checking if we required anything. His customer focus and service was first-class. He had high standards, ensuring we were happy at all times. Both Jo and Alex are a credit to the team. All the staff worked hard to make things seem effortless, which we all know it isn’t. You can rest assured you will have all your needs met, above and beyond, great customer service. Food – Wow! We had the Premium BBQ on the patio. The catering department was excellent! Staff were courteous and worked to high standards. The food was amazing, there was so much, enough for seconds and some! Food is bought from local companies/producers which was superb, so tasty and cooked to perfection. We had so many compliments on choosing the BBQ for our wedding breakfast, it worked so well and allows the atmosphere to be more relaxed/enjoyable. Everyone commented on how good the food was and how much they enjoyed it. I cannot recommend the Hotel enough. You will not be disappointed.

Truly amazing
Venue Service

By Lois Ives, on 09 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Jun 2018

My wedding day was truly amazing, as were Adam and the team on the day. They were so accommodating, even ended up providing one guest with a different main meal. Our guests all thoroughly enjoyed themselves and could only say great things about the venue and staff. Thanks Georgina for all your help with the planning and ensuring everything went according to plan.

First Rate Experience
Venue Service

By Tony & Ali, on 09 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 19 May 2018

From the moment we entered the long tree lined drive to Chilworth Manor we knew it was a special place and one that we wanted to celebrate our wedding at. We were guided through the wedding planning stage by Jo Bennett who helped us and kept us informed throughout the lead up to our ceremony in May. On the day we were extremely well looked after by Valli who could not have been more attentive. He was extremely calm and professional and ensured everything was catered for. Nothing was too much trouble. Many guests commented on how helpful he was. His team worked so hard and always had a smile on their faces. The food was plentiful, hot and served promptly and efficiently, and tasted amazing. The accommodation was perfect and the extra touches in the bridal suite were appreciated. The hospitality continued to be first rate the morning after when Valli met us on our arrival for breakfast and checked we were ok. A lovely touch was letting all our guests enjoy breakfast together in a separate room. All in all a first rate experience. Beautiful grounds provided a lovely setting for our guests to relax and us to have some wonderful photographs taken. Attentive staff, excellent food and service ensured our wedding day was perfect. Thank you Tony and Ali
