The sophisticated redbrick house offers elegant proportions, nestled away at the end of a long tree-lined drive and surrounded by 12 acres of parkland and gardens – giving you the exclusivity and stunning backdrop you deserve on such a special day!

Built in 1806 by the Duke of Norfolk as his country home, Brandshatch Place remained a prestigious private residence until 1977. However, now it stands as one of Kent’s most beautiful and luxurious hotels. Boasting an award-winning on-site Spa & Health Club, a selection of well-appointed function rooms, and the option of exclusive use, it’s the perfect location for a personal celebration in Kent.

From the intimate Boardroom to the light-flooded Oak Room, there is a choice of settings for your ceremony. Meanwhile, for your wedding breakfast and evening reception, you could make use of the expansive Atrium Bar or the spacious Terrace Suite.

When it comes to your wedding, we will serve up a modern British menu of truly delicious food. Our Chef is more than happy to create a bespoke menu, or you can choose from one of our impressive set menus.

When the celebrations have drawn to a close, the hotel offers a total of 38 beautifully furnished bedrooms for you and your guests to retire to. Including 2 Master Suites and 4 Junior Suites – it is a little slice of luxury you deserve on your wedding night!

Summer Wedding 2019

After being greeted so warmly by all the staff and suppliers at one of the wedding open days, and seeing all the hotel had to offer my daughter knew that Brandshatch Place Hotel was the right venue for their wedding.

Throughout the planning stage from meetings to menu and wine tastings and during the weekend of the wedding all the staff were so friendly and so helpful,

The day surpassed our expectations, nothing was too much trouble and everyone worked so hard to make it the most perfect day.

Amazing venue

The facilities and staff at Brandshatch Place are second to none. Every detail was planned in advance and all our wants and needs were met. The staff on the day were friendly, helpful and the day ran seamlessly. Nothing was too much trouble and the rooms and food was amazing. We wish we could do it all again!

Perfect wedding day at Brandshatch Place Hotel & S

We had the most perfect wedding day at this fantastic venue. From the very start the staff bent over backwards to accommodate our requests. Nothing was too much trouble.

We were made to feel special and the wedding felt very personal. The attention to detail was impressive, even giving the bride slippers to wear during the meal so she could take off the heels!

We were so impressed with the staff at the hotel, who are all very polite, friendly and professional. It felt like our wedding really mattered to them despite the fact they hosts weddings most weekends.

The meal was beautiful and the service impeccable. It was great to be able to give our guests a choice of menu which a lot of other venues don't offer.

The function room looked absolutely stunning, the candelabras with lit candles being a lovely feature. Everything ran like clockwork, the staff made it feel very relaxed and effortless although they obviously worked extremely hard.

All our guest have been very complimentary about the wedding venue, so many have said it was the best wedding they have been to! For us it was simply perfect.

We could go on, every detail was thought of, indeed some we hadn't even thought of!

Thank you Brandshatch Place Hotel for the most special wedding, we could not have asked for more and have such happy memories of a wonderful day.

Jo & Jum's Perfect Wedding Day

Well what can I say.....
We both wanted a venue where all our friends & family could share our special day under one roof, with the choice of booking a room for themselves.
Brandshatch Place Hotel was the first venue i visited July '16 (actually the only one!!) because it felt perfect for me. Especially after speaking with Lizzie (wedding coordinator) i was then making enquires what dates available for 2017! Then 17th Feb '17 was free, so i was more than happy as its our 3rd anniversary also meant just over 6 months to organise!!!!
I can honestly say from the start Lizzie was always on hand for me by phone/email.
I stayed overnight before with my mum/bridesmaids for my big day which was the perfect chilled out evening. After breakfast it all began....
We had a sneak preview of Lisa's work (Flowers&Sparkle) which was amazing.
Then it was time to get ready.....anything we wanted the staff were there on hand to assist us. Barry (Toastmaster) together with the Function manager insured smooth running from start to finish.
Everyone kept saying how calm i was. I honestly feel knowing you have everything in place and a team around you like i had at Brandshatch there isnt anything to be nervous about. 100% job well done to one & all
Jum & I cant thank you enough and we know where we are spending our 1st Anniversary!!!

First class service in an intimate location

Had our ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening celebration at the Brandshatch Place Hotel & Spa on Friday 3rd February 2017. Was a fantastic day and all our guests commented on the professionalism of service along with how good quality the food was. Lizzie from the hotel who worked with us over the year to plan the wedding was equally fantastic. Great location for smaller (50-100 guests) wedding celebrations. The package we chose was excellent value.

Dear Emma
We just wanted to thank you for all your hard work throughout the lead up and on the day of our wedding. We had such a wonderful day and cant thank you and the rest of the staff at Brandshatch Place Hotel enough for making it so special.
You were a pleasure to deal with and we could not have hoped for a better wedding reception.
Everything went so smoothly and you were so accommodating. The food was also fantastic.

Many Thanks
