The food was delicious!
By Kevin and Rachel, on 09 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Aug 2019
As you know, we took a while to commit to Botleys, but we are both so glad we decided to not let our worries take over, because there really was nothing to worry about. Running towards the end of the planning process, Jennifer was great in prompting and nudging to get everything done and updated, despite our IT deficiencies! On the day, Lisa, Guy, and Dan were all amazing. I’m not going to list all the things that are noteworthy but trust me when I say all 3 of them were everything we needed and made the day go so smoothly. All the rest of the staff were equally great, so please do pass our thanks on to all the wait staff and bar tenders. And pass on our thanks especially to the chefs, the food was delicious!

I want to start by saying we had the most amazing day on Saturday. It was faultless and we loved every second. Your staff could not do enough for us. Thanks for the best day ever.
We will be recommending you to everyone!
By Parents of the Bride, on 17 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 14 Jun 2019
We would just to say a massive thank you to you all at Botleys for making yesterday the best day our daughter could have wished for. From the moment we first viewed the Mansion up until we checked out today you were all so helpful and accommodating. Dan, Guy and all staff were amazing. Again a massive thank you and will be recommending you to everyone.
The staff worked tirelessly...

Thank you so soooooo much to everyone that helped make our day go perfectly. From the very beginning of the day the staff were on hand to help and nothing was too much. The waiters/waitresses were absolutely amazing and so professional. My aim was to have the wedding of my dreams and you all ensured that dream came true. My guests all commented on how spectacular the venue and the staff were on the day. Myself and Martin are truly grateful for everything you done for us, we will never forget our magical wedding day and we thank you ALL from the bottom of our hearts. The staff worked tirelessly before hand to ensure everything was in place and everything ran smoothly. Words cannot describe how incredible our wedding day was and you all made that happen. Thank you very very much.
Everything and more...
By Natalie & Frank, on 29 May 2019Date of Wedding - 27 May 2019
We would just like to say a massive thank you to all of the wedding planning team for helping to make our day extra special. The food was amazing and the whole atmosphere was everything and more. You were all very polite, attentive and friendly. Thank you for giving us a day our guests and ourselves will cherish forever.
The Best Day Ever!
By Stephanie and Simon, on 22 May 2019Date of Wedding - 18 May 2019
Saturday was unbelievable, and it wouldn't have been possible without everyone who's been involved from Botleys, from start to finish. From Emma, who at the outset, made us believe a crazy pipedream (with 3 months to do it!) was doable, to Maddie, for being so brilliant at responding to our queries, big and small, and pulling everything together to make sure we got there on the big day, to Guy, Dan and Rachel (and all of the staff around them), on the day, and beforehand, for being the most genuine, attentive, supportive, and brilliant guys, and making sure the day ran smoothly. Everyone left on Saturday (or Sunday if they were staying), praising the venue beyond belief, and saying they'd genuinely had the best day ever. The great thing for us is, rather than just being left wondering whether it's just something people say after your wedding, we truly believe them, and think so too.
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.
Exceeded our expectations...
By Rachael and Luke, on 18 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Dec 2018
Our wedding on December 20th was perfect from start to finish and that wouldn’t have been possible without your whole team. You exceeded our expectations in so many ways and it wouldn’t have been the day it was without all your help. I wanted to say a special thank you to Maddie, with all her help in the process, and to the 2 very kind ladies that helped me throughout the day. Everyone commented on how fantastic the venue was so thank you.
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!

Thank you so much for our amazing day! The staff were incredible and so was the food. We could not have asked for a better day.
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.
