Masterful Management
Venue Service

By Kevan Lamb, on 21 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Sep 2018

First of all may I say that i am writing this as the father of the bride as the happy couple are still out of the country on their honeymoon. I could not contain myself any longer to await their return to write this review. The team that managed my daughters wedding package can only be described as masters of their craft. They were supportive, reassuring inspiring and above all hospitable. People often talk about the hotel trade as the hospitality business and there are very few establishments that provide this. However this hotel has this commodity oozing from its authentic stone walls from every member of staff from housekeeping to reception. The wedding planners, Leanne, Adele and Pippa were exceptional as individuals but when working as a team you are constantly reassured that you were in good hands. We had frequent meetings with the team and this was very helpful. On the weekend of the wedding we had booked almost 30 places for the weekend and we were welcomed with open arms. We had a meal on the Friday night for 30 our of guests and this was again delivered with totally professional ease and efficiency. The food in this hotel is second to none that I have encountered in my many years of travel. The chef and his team produced some phenomenal dishes over the weekend. The day of the wedding was supervised by Pippa who may I say did a sterling job with full itinerary of photographer, entertainers, videographers etc, as well as very emotional family members. The whole day was absolutely perfect with no hitches and everything running like clockwork. As said before this establishment and the people who work there are masters of their craft Thank you for a most memorable weekend

By Mr & Mrs Smith, on 13 Sep 2010

The location was delightful and the hotel atmosphere warm and friendlt and I cannot praise the bar and restaurant staff enough for nothing was too much trouble for them. I would especially like to thank David, the catering manager for all his help and assistamce, for I know he went to alot of trouble to make sure everything was perfect over and above his duties ensuring that the food was to perfection. We would also like to thank the head chef for the roast beef carvery was absolutely delicious and everyone was over the moon with the yorkshire puddings. The hotel itself is extremely comfortable and the facilities superb, the setting and views made for some perfect photographs.

Wedding Day Perfect in every way
Venue Service

By Paul, on 15 Aug 2010

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the staff at Derwent Manor Hotel for all of your hard work, professonalism and caring approach towards our wedding that took place on 30th July 2010. From day one the staff have been of great help answering any queries that we had and making sure we were looked after at all times. The day of our wedding ran perfectly and this is all down to the staff. The rooms were decorated beautifully, staff were on hand at any given moment and the food was delicious during the day and the evening as most people commented and everyone had an enjoyable day. One again I would like to take this opportunity in saying a huge thank you for making our day perfect in every way.

Faboulous Day!!
Venue Service

By Kirsty Ringer, on 11 Mar 2010

We got married here June 2009 in the grand hall a magnificent room. Staff pulled out all the stops to ensure our day was as special as could be! Food was delicious both day and evening buffet. Beautiful setting for the hotel ideal for photographs. Checked in the day before with my bridesmaids and had a relaxing swin, sauna and jacuzzi just what we needed to chill out should of used the gym but hey what the heck!! Most of my guests stayed over rooms very spacious ideal for big wedding dresses! Myself and the groom booked the hotels bridal suite Derwent 1 words can not describe how beautiful this room is, free standing huge bath, massive bed and even 2 sinks! Can not thank Derwent Manor enough for making our day so unforgettable!!

Pulled out all the stops on the day!
Venue Service

By Emma and Doug, on 28 Jan 2003

Prior to the wedding we had some problems agreeing room prices for our guests - the hotel wanted to charge them more than the going rate! (be sure to check what the general public are being charged!). However, the Grand hall is the most amazing function room we viewed - with gallery, and the staff pulled out all the stops on the day ensuring everything went perfectly. And after a night in the beautiful penthouse suite, we had a breakfast with our guests (served by the same hard working staff!). Only problem is that it has relatively few facilities - no golf or swimming pool, but then it doesn't cost the earth either.
