The perfect wedding

We decided a year ago to have the Brighton Harbour Hotel as our wedding venue. The Marine Room, used for weddings and functions, is absolutely beautiful with white wood panelled walls, leaded windows and white wooden shutters. We fell in love with it. Additionally, the hotel is right on the sea front and has a real buzz about it. We felt so lucky to have the services of Fiona Jones to organise our big day. Having only recently moved to the area, I found the supplier recommendations invaluable. We used Those Party People for MC and music throughout the day, Sarah Wenban for photography, Ambience for decor and, together with the team from the hotel, they all knew each other and worked seamlessly together.
The light in the room was great for having my make-up done and Fiona came to the rescue with minutes to spare when the button came off of my dress. If she was panicking with everything else she had to deal with, she didn’t show it! We didn’t want anything too formal or too rigid. We wanted our guests to enjoy their day by the seaside; many had travelled a long way to join us. There were no unwanted surprises, nothing had been missed, everything came together just as we had asked. We really can’t thank Fiona and everyone at the hotel enough for making it happen. We had loads of compliments from our guests about the food, particularly the lamb. Greta and her team did a fabulous job dealing with a few last minute changes. We made absolutely the right choice to have our wedding at the Brighton Harbour Hotel and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them as a wedding venue.

Great Day

I would like to thank you, Paul and all the team at the Harbour for such a great day, the staff are to be congratulated as everyone was wonderful and so accommodating. The day couldn’t have gone better from our point of view and I know a lot of guests that had not visited the hotel before were very impressed with the overall ambiance of the hotel.

Again thanks for your continued efforts both before and during the big day as we couldn’t have got the wedding we wanted without your assistance.

Hope to see you soon at one of my stays at the hotel.

Thank you all for making our wedding so special

We got married at the Brighton harbour hotel on 5/5/18.

It was so stress free thanks to their wedding coordinator Fiona, she was an absolute star and made sure everything was as we wanted it!

All the staff were so helpful, friendly and nothing was too much.

The food was lovely and no one was without a drink thanks to Andrea!

We’ve stayed in the hotel a few times now and will defiantly be going back!

Thank you all for making our wedding day so special!!

Bianca and Rob Downey :)

Wedding Party

We recently held a wedding party at the Harbour Hotel and couldn't be more delighted with how the whole day and evening went. Our son and daughter in law married abroad so we were looking to hold a simple blessing and informal party with friends and family who couldn't attend the actual wedding. Fiona, our Events Co-Ordinator, was amazing from the first time we met her - so approachable and helpful. We were able to deviate from the normal wedding package and tailor the event to suit our requirements. All the staff involved on the day were very friendly and welcoming, nothing seemed to be too much trouble, and they were so professional in how they co-ordinated changing the room around for the different aspects of the day. Our friends and family have endorsed our view that the venue is great; the food lovely and fresh and well presented and the friendliness and attitude of the staff outstanding. Those that stayed also loved their rooms, the spa and the comfortable beds. So we just want to say a very big thank you to everyone at the Harbour Hotel who worked so very hard to create a fabulous and memorable day, particularly Fiona and lovely Greta who took over looking after us during the evening. We would thoroughly recommend the Harbour Hotel - you would be hard pushed to find a more dedicated team to run any special event.

Amazing Wedding Venue in Brighton!

What a venue! We cannot recommend the Harbour Hotel more as a wedding venue. We got married in December so having an inside venue, was perfect for us.

They organised everything, even liasing with our suppliers in the run up so we didn’t have to worry about organising arrival times. They also did an amazing job with the menu testing …they were all delicious!

On the day itself the team were incredible. They got out some games in the snug, which our guests loved…and kept the kids entertained during the drinks reception. During the meal the waiters and waitresses were always ready to serve and top up peoples drinks (which none of the guests minded). Our guests kept saying how wonderful the team were, and we couldn’t agree more.

One of our concerns was that initially the venue did seem a bit small and we were getting more worried that our guests would be squashed. Fiona, the wedding organiser assured us that the room would be able to seat all 96 of our guests and talked us through clearly how the room was going to be laid out, even going to the trouble of setting it all up in advance and sending us photos of the possible layouts, with the help of Matt at the hotel who was great as well. Our guests were not squashed at all and we were able to move around the tables during the different courses to chat to guests.

Our package included an overnight stay and use of the lovely underground spa, which made a great start to married life!

The team at Harbour really did help to make our day perfect and we highly recommend that if you are getting married to go and have a look at this wonderful venue.

The perfect finish to an amazing wedding day

We recently got married and had to pull forward our wedding date by several months. BHH had opened since we'd booked our original venue - who were unavailable for our new date - and honestly it worked out so well we were relieved we had to change our plans! Pauline and the hotel team did an amazing job with the reception, they were accommodating, friendly and very professional. The venue itself worked out perfectly, looked fantastic and the food was exactly as we'd hoped. They even dealt very discreetly and considerately with that one guest who got a little ... over enthusiastic ... with the wine.
We and several of our guests also stayed in the hotel, the rooms were gorgeous and the breakfast very good. We also used the spa facilities the next day which were not yet complete but the setting is very atmospheric and the treatments and steam rooms were fab, I'm hoping to pop back soon when the pool is ready.
Cannot recommend highly enough, whether for a weekend break, a fishy dinner or for your own wedding!

First weeding at Brighton Harbour Hotel

1. Communal hotel areas - the hotel has been beautifully re-furbished and decorated. We loved the marine theme in the restaurant, bar and snug area. The room where we held the reception was lovely - so clean and fresh.
2. Bedroom - we loved our deluxe sea-view room. It was huge which was just as well as we had so much stuff for the wedding! The bed was super - so comfy we didn't want to get out of it.
3. Food - we ate in The Jetty on Thursday evening, along with the in-laws and some friends and we all thought that the food was superb. Breakfasts were also delicious.
4. Wedding Reception - everything went without a hitch. Will was very helpful and totally unflappable. The table and bar service were excellent. The wedding breakfast and supper food was all lovely.
5. Wedding Co-ordinator - She is a real asset to your hotel and was absolutely brilliant from the first point of contact all the way through to our departure. Nothing was too much trouble for her; she is totally professional yet friendly and approachable. One of the main reasons we chose the BHH was because we trusted Pauline from Day 1.
6. Other Staff - the rest of your staff are also superb - you have a great team with real can-do attitude. We would particularly like to mention our 'favourite' breakfast waiter - Phil - he was so kind, friendly and helpful.
8. Other Feedback - we have received some excellent feedback from our guests. Those who stayed at your hotel all loved it, with some wanting to stay again. Other attendees commended us on our choice of hotel.
We re hoping to staying with you again in the near future.
