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!

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

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!

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

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

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.
We could not have asked for more

Hi Ann. We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and all the team who made our day such a special success. We are so pleased with how the day went, our guests were completely blown away and everyone told us it was the best Wedding they had ever been to. The sun was beaming down on us and all of our guests the entire day and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. We can't thank you enough.
Our wedding day went so smoothly
By Darran and Alex, on 11 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Apr 2018
We wish to write to you to say a big thank you for ensuring our wedding day went so smoothly. We had a fab memorable day and the the house and staff were all part of that.
Special thanks to Emma for having to deal with all my emails timely; to the two Sarahs (especially evening Sarah for handling the drag dj with a great sense of humour); and lastly Guy, who was there ensuring all was set up and coming to the rescue in fixing the button holes. The guests all commented on how amazing the house looked and how tentative the staff were during the wedding reception (perhaps too tentative for my champagne hungry friends lol). Please thank the Chef also as the food was wonderful and everyone still is praising the Sticky Beef.
Everything we could have asked for
By Rachel and Matthew, on 15 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 09 Dec 2017
