Botleys Mansion exceeded our expectations!
By Anna & Graham, on 03 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Dec 2018
We can’t thank you enough for a truly memorable day which even exceeded our expectations. The service from the staff at Botleys was impeccable and nothing was too much trouble. Both Rachel and Dan contributed tellingly to the smooth running of the day and ensured that everything ran like clockwork. We have attended a number of other weddings recently and seen how stressful it can be for the bride and groom as they spend much of their time ensuring their guests are enjoying themselves but the biggest compliment we can give is that we never experienced this at Botleys - all of the staff worked hard to ensure it was a memorable day for everyone in attendance, and especially the bride and groom! Once again, heartfelt thanks from both of us - we had a perfect day and created memories that will last a lifetime.
Gutted it is all over!
By Hannah and Aaron, on 26 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 22 Nov 2018
We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team that helped make yesterday an absolutely amazing day, it was everything and more that we ever imagined and none of it would be possible without you guys! Your staff are an absolute credit to the Bijou brand and they were all impeccable in their service! Guy and his team were lovely, and the two ladies (sorry I didn’t catch their names!) who were with me throughout the morning were equally amazing and very reassuring! The food was spectacular and everyone commented saying the same! The wine waiters were fabulous and it really added to the overall effect of the day! I’d like to say thank you again to yourself for all your help throughout the planning process and always coming back to me quickly whatever the issue! Once again a massive thank you to you all from both Aaron and I - I’m gutted that it’s all over!
I honestly cannot recommend you all enough...
By Harriet and Jon, on 06 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Nov 2018
My husband Jon and I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone at Botleys Mansion for making our wedding day so special from start to finish on the 1st November 2018. Also a huge thanks for all your hard work helping us along the way with the planning process to ensure everything went so smoothly.
We could not have done it without you all. So professional and attentive we could not have asked for any more and could not have imagined it any better.
We want to give special thanks to the members of staff who were there on the day - Casey who was our operations manager, Dean who was our night manager accompanied by Emma R, and Sarah along with Emma M on the day. Also thanks to Carol who was fabulous at our final planner meeting and Maddie for always answering our queries via email so quickly and precisely.
Thank you also for our gift at breakfast - the lovely print of Botleys Mansion that we will cherish forever.
I honestly cannot recommend you all enough. You were all so kind and friendly to us on the day and we felt like we were in a dream.
Perfect venue for a perfect wedding
By Alex the Cat, on 23 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 20 Oct 2018
Having been at the same wedding, I struggled to recognise any part of the review left by "Sofi" below.
The house is beautiful, ideal as a one-stop venue for both the service and reception.
Staff could not have been more accommodating. They were attentive and quick to respond to requests. My glass was seldom empty, and food and beverages were produced quickly and with good humour. They could not have been any more guest-focused.
None of the food was "diabolical" and I struggle to believe that any guests left hungry. To the contrary, it was remarkable they managed to coordinate a sit-down service so efficiently, for a party of upwards of 200
Highly recommended as a venue and experience.
Far from being embarrassed, the bride's father (as well as the bride and the rest of the bridal party) should feel proud of creating a lovely and memorable day.
Worst Wedding I have ever attended.
By Sofi, on 22 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 20 Oct 2018
I attended a wedding at Botley's Mansion on 20 October 2018. The snacks that should have been served after the civil ceremony were non existent. It took staff 30 minutes to produce one tray of glasses of water, several of which already had lipstick stains on them and clearly dirty. Guests were left without food for over four hours-including diabetics, elderly and also pregnant guests. The starter and main course were diabolical and most guests left the wedding hungry. Will not ever go to this place again and feel very embarrassed for the bride's father.
The most incredible day!
By Sarah and Iain, on 05 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Sep 2018
Ann, Thank you so much for all your hard work we had the most incredible day! You and the team on the day were fantastic. The food & cocktails were delicious, so please do thank the chef & the bar teams. And please pass on our thanks to the entire serving team who worked on the day.
A truly magical event
By Parents of the Bride, on 05 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 14 Sep 2018
Thank you to all of the staff at Botleys Mansion who were involved in Charley and Sam’s wedding on Friday 14th September. Every one of you helped to make it a truly magical event from start to finish. We’ve had such wonderful feedback from those who attended.
BEST day ever!
By Charlotte & Sam, on 05 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 14 Sep 2018
Maddie. We just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all the team at Bijou / Botleys. We had the BEST day, everything was perfect and it all went exactly to plan. We had so many lovely comments from friends and family about the venue, the service and the food.
Everything went perfectly
By Claire & Tom, on 05 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 25 Aug 2018
Tom and I wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the whole Bijou team for making our day such a success. Everything went perfectly and we couldn't have asked for anything more!
By Samantha Riordan-Eva, on 14 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Aug 2018
We got married on August 23rd 2018. What a day! We loved every minute we spend in this beautiful venue. The service was fabulous and so many of our guests commented on it. The staff were so discreet, things just happened by magic!!
The planning was made easy by having our online planner and someone to respond to all of our messages swiftly. We enjoyed the planning meetings because they were an excuse to see the place again! Between these, our tasting (so fun) and dropping in with the in-laws, the house felt like a second home by the time the big day came! The food was amazing, I am fussy and many of our guests said it was the best wedding food they have ever had.
Yes, as some people have said you do pay for it and everything extra costs, but this is a business so expect it. You are paying for 5 star quality and service and you get it! Thank you Botleys staff.
Our Wonderful Wedding
By Jasmine Harris, on 24 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 05 Aug 2018
I would like to say a massive thank you to all of you for the help and guidance throughout planning our wedding, right up to the moment I walked down the aisle and when we had breakfast the following morning. Words cannot explain how brilliant and helpful your staff were. Lisa was particularly fantastic, she looked after me all morning making sure I was ready on time, even down to buttoning up my dress! I can't thank you enough Lisa for putting myself and my family at ease, we felt so well looked after. Guy was also great in the evening, he made sure our drinks were constantly topped up and that everyone was having a fun all night. Thank you! The other staff members were so happy to help at any stage it really made us feel special on such an important day. The young gent who took our 12:30am drinks orders in the Library must have been working all day but he was still more than happy to do anything he could to make our evening perfect.
As a previous wedding coordinator and self-confessed control freak I can quite confidently say your whole team successfully put me at ease and always made us feel that everything was under control, which it was. The planning stages were made so simple with the easy to use planning website, something I logged into most evenings! On the day the whole team knew everything that was happening hour by hour, the process was very regimented and worked absolute wonders.
I want to thank you again for all making such an important day for us, just perfect!
Mr & Mrs Harris (5th August 2018)
...it exceeded our wildest dreams.
By Kate & Kris, on 20 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 06 Jul 2018
Wanted to drop a note to say thank you so much for everything that you & the team did for our day on Friday. We thought it would be great but it exceeded our wildest dreams. We had the best day. The number of compliments we've got from people on how beautiful the venue was and how great the food was have been too many to count! Thank you so much for such a great day. Thanks again for all your help & to the whole team for making our day so memorable.
