A Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Sarah Gillett, on 14 May 2016

We had our wedding reception here at the end of March and had the most amazing day! The Harbour Hotel staff were so helpful and supportive from the day that we booked with them right through to the morning after the wedding as they helped us load up our car before jetting off on honeymoon. Laura-Jo Dredge was our point of contact and was an angel. She couldn't do enough to help in the planning process and was always on the end of the phone to answer questions and make arrangements for us. On the day of our wedding the staff were just great. Our food was served so quickly and as we requested, the children were given priory so as not to be left to wait for their food. All the waiting staff were so professional and helpful. So many of our guests commented on how good the food was too! We encountered nothing but plain sailing all day and are so thankful to all the staff for their fantastic service. It is such a beautifully decorated hotel, our room was so lovely looking out onto the sea. We can't say enough to explain how thankful we are for helping to make our wedding day one of the best days in our lives! We can't wait to visit next march to celebrate our first anniversary!

Magical day for both of us
Venue Service

By Simon & Rhian Wootten, on 11 Feb 2016

We had our wedding on the 12/12/15, we both had no idea how to organise it, let alone what we needed to do Arianne, who ran through all the details with us and made it the best day of our lives. Chris, who organised everything the day prior made it to exactly how we wanted it, with minimal information. The staff were absolutely brilliant, catered our every need, even having a laugh with our wedding guests. I can not put a bad point against 'Christchurch Harbour Hotel'. Thank you for everything!!!

Perfect wedding, staff amazing.
Venue Service

By Jane and Treena, on 30 Dec 2015

We got married here on Monday and had the most perfect day ever! From start to finish our wedding organiser Laura-Jo was reliable and efficient. We had no stress whatsoever with any of the details of the wedding, the staff were amazing and Chris the Banqueting Manager was superb. The food was fantastic and the service and attention to detail from all the staff was second to none. We had so many comments from our guests about how lovely the hotel was and how the staff were all so happy and helpful. The rooms were lovely and breakfast plentiful. We had the most amazing day and would recommend it to anyone!

Wedding 18th July 2015
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Douch, on 31 Jul 2015

We chose this venue for its beautiful location and views, the ceremony room overlooked the water and the view made the whole service extra special. The wedding coordinator Amelia was terrific however she had to leave part way through for a new job and we wish her all the best of luck. Arianne took over and did a splendid job especially coming into the plans and organisation so late, the day was unforgettable and the staff throughout on the day made everything run smoothly. The weather was a dream on the day which only made the hotel even more beautiful, all the guests commented what a great location we had chosen. We would also love to mention and thank Chris and Laura for their participation throughout the wedding. If you have been thinking about this hotel for your wedding, I'd definitely say go for it.

By Mr and Mrs Weller, on 19 Jul 2015

We had our wedding here and it was simply perfect in every aspect, the staff were amazing from day one when we looked round, we knew straight away that this was where we wanted to get married, we live in Hertfordshire so was a little concerned about the distance and the planning, but i shouldn't have even let the thought enter my head as the wedding team were amazing, nothing was to much trouble we only went to the venue twice before our big day, on the day the staff and wedding coordinator were superb and on top of everything our day was perfect in every way and because the staff and facilities were so good there was not an ounce of stress or worry (apart from me walking down the aisle that was:)) if your thinking of getting married here stop thinking and book it, you will have an amazing day ??

Our December wedding
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Thorne, on 02 Jan 2015

For us, one of the most important aspects of our wedding was that we wanted to bring all our family and friends together in a lovely place where they could relax, enjoy excellent food and have a special day. Right from the date of booking (August 2013) to our wedding in December 2014, the team at the Christchurch Harbour Hotel helped us to achieve this. The professionalism, friendliness and organisation of our events manager, Amber, was outstanding and was matched by the rest of the team on the special day itself. We had a wonderful professional toastmaster in Michael Judd who was warm, funny, extremely professional and whose vast experience really shone through. He was wonderful and kept the day running smoothly. After a church ceremony we arrived at our drinks reception (to a lovely greeting from Chris, Amber and Mike) before sitting down to a delicious three course meal. This was served beautifully and was of a very high standard. The views across the harbour are second to none and thanks to beautiful weather (a real relief in December!) we have some incredible photos. We received so many compliments about the day from our guests and everyone had a brilliant day so we achieved our aim. We owe a huge thank you to all the staff at the hotel who worked so hard to ensure our day was perfect in every way.

Perfect in every way!
Venue Service

By Glen and Sam Gardiner, on 28 Sep 2014

Well what can we say - from the initial meeting through to the actual day, we cannot fault the hotel in any way. Its staff, food and facilities were first class. The location is stunning particularly on a lovely clear blue sky day that we were lucky enough to enjoy. Special thanks to Amelia (wedding planner) and Chris (Head of House) who organised everything for us down to the finest detail. They really did take the stress out of the build up to the wedding. We really did have the most magical day and many of our guests commented that it was probably the best wedding they had been to. Thank you to all at The Christchurch Harbour Hotel & Spa!

Venue Service

By Nichola Davey, on 30 Jul 2014

My wedding was on the 13th July (2014). The staff were all extremely helpful (esp Chris our manager for the day) The food was lovely! We had soup, BBQ and desert followed by tea, coffee and truffles then in evening pizza buffet. For the package we had (Sunday package) we certainly got a lot for our money. The venue is beautiful and even enjoyed a swim and breakfast on the following day. Shame we cant do it again!!

My Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Sara and Phil West, on 10 Jun 2014

I had a small wedding in May 2014 (30 guests) and booked the Christchurch Harbour Hotel. I must say they were extremely attentive and put me at my ease. A gentleman called Chris was very helpful and even showed my flowergirls how to walk down the red carpet! The food which was a cold meat platter followed by a cream tea was delicious. My guests loved the location and the ambience of the place. I wish I could do it again! Sara (and new husband)!

Beautiful wedding venue
Venue Service

By Nic and Lena, on 09 Jun 2014

Thank you Christchurch Harbour Hotel for making our wedding last month so perfect. The venue is stunning and the staff are so helpful , we are so glad we chose this wonderful hotel for our wedding ceremony and celebrations. Wedding coordinators at the hotel were happy to help with any requests we had in the weeks before the wedding, be it by e-mail or in person. The day itself run very smoothly and lots of our guests commented how beautiful the venue was and how lovely the food was. We were very impressed how well-organised the weddings at Christchurch Harbour hotel are, how personal each one of them is.

Amazing venue and amazing team!

By Sophie Drayton, on 21 Nov 2013

Thanks to everyone at the Christchurch Harbour Hotel & Spa who made our wedding the most perfect day! We are so grateful and their hard work and dedication really showed in every aspect of our day! The venue itself is obvious stunning and the service was perfect :-)

Simply Stunning
Venue Service

By Beth & Simon, on 09 Jul 2013

Our wedding at Christchurch Harbour Hotel was perfect. Working with the team over email and planning everything from Australia was easier than we could have ever imagined. Every detail was cross checked and Chris (the most amazing wedding coordinator) made sure our day ran seamlessly. We would recommend anyone to have their entire day here (Ceremony, Wedding Breakfast and Evening Reception) exactly as we did!
