I would like to say that our recent wedding day on 11 September was a wonderful occasion. All our guests have commented on what a lovely time they had and how everything went really smoothly (a day they won't forget). The ceremony was held outside (we were really lucky with the weather) and walking up the red carpet I felt like a fairy princess despite being a pensioner! The food was very well presented and tasted delicious. So, thank you Nicky, the man who looked after us on the day (sorry did not get your name) and all the staff for making it our very special day. A DAY TO REMEMBER!

I could not recommend this hotel enough. From start to finish the team were amazing in helping me plan my whole day and nothing was ever too much trouble. I had some strange and peculiar requests to make our day special and I was never met with anything other than a smile and a yes we can do that. The team were also like one big family helping and supporting us through the day and with good recomendations, ideas and attention to detail.
We had just over 100 guests who fitted in the hotel extremely well, lots of rooms, space in the venue and parking.
The suite was perfect we were able to entertain friends and family as the day progressed.
My family were well looked after during our stay with short notice requests accommodated.
The team produced a needle and thread like ninjas at a very critical moment.
The night before we had private dining away from the main restaurant which was excellent and we were well looked after.
Since the wedding friends and family have complimented the hotel on the quality of the food, the ambience and environment.
I will have very fond memories of the day and that’s down to the amazing staff and service.
A really great day !

We would like to thank Nicky and her team for the wonderful wedding we had at Cisswood House in April.
From our first meeting we felt we had made the right choice,and when we had the menue tasting we knew we had,all the food was just superb.
The day itself just flowed perfectly,Martinet and her staff were always on hand to help with even the most trivial things.
As an older couple we did not want anything too over the top,just a nice venue with good food,good service and a nice atmosphere,Cisswood has all of these,and exceeded our expectations
A Very Big Thank You

Thinking of having your wedding in the near future at Cisswood House, if they look after you as they have just done on my daughter’s wedding day you will not have a better wedding.
We looked at many venues as my daughter wanted an outside ceremony. From the moment we first spoke to Cisswood and throughout the process also leading up to the day they have made us feel so welcome and nothing was a problem for them.
We stayed at the hotel the night before and ate in the restaurant. The food was excellent.
On the big day we were made to feel relaxed and the staff could not do enough for us. Even some of our guests arriving early were allowed to check into their rooms if the rooms were ready, again another nice touch by the hotel. The food served on the day was hot and very enjoyable. Special dietary needs were catered for without any problems or fuss by the hotel.
Your daughter’s wedding day is a very special occasion. I would be the first person to complain if things on the hotel side were not right. I can honestly say we did not have one single problem on the day. Our rooms were clean and tidy, the food was excellent and the staff were fantastic.
Special mention to Nicky and Vikki for making the process of planning the day and the lead up to the day so painless. Also Martinet and Gary were superb along with the team on the day.
We, without doubt, could not have had a better wedding day. Thank you all at Cisswood for making the day so special, anyone due to have a wedding there should have a great day as we did!

We got married on 29th June 2012 at Cisswood House Hotel. From start to finish the day was perfect, and we are so glad we chose this venue. The staff were brilliant and so helpful. Nicky was always at the end of an email when I had one of my silly question to ask. The wedding breakfast was lovely and all the guests commented on how nice the food was and we have to agree. The Cisswood's grounds are beautiful and we have got some lovely photos out there. We would recommend this venue to anyone getting married.
Perfect Wedding Venue

We had our wedding at the Cisswood House Hotel, and booked it on an Exclusive Use basis. From the moment we first walked in the hotel to have a look around, to the end of the wedding day, all the staff were absolutely fantastic. Nicky Hayward, the Events Co-ordinator was wonderful, and kept us informed of things every step of the way. Claire Masterton sorted out all the room bookings for our guests, and sent weekly updates so we knew who was staying.
The hotel is beautiful, and the gardens are absolutely stunning. It’s all very well looked after. The staff were all very polite, friendly, helpful and extremely efficient. The toastmaster, Tony Forward, was provided by the hotel and he ensured the smooth running of the whole day from the moment I came downstairs for the ceremony, until after the first dance.
The food was absolutely excellent, and every one of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the whole day, and were all very complimentary of the hotel. I can’t begin to praise the hotel and staff enough for making our day so perfect. We can’t fault them, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone else looking for the perfect venue for their special day.
Perfect day from start to finish

We got married on 12th May 2012. Our ceremony was held at St Margarets Church, Ifield and we went onto the Cisswood for the remainder of the day.
Lead up to the wedding - We dealt mostly with Nicky and Claire in the lead up to the day who dealt very efficiently with the planning, room booking and any questions we had along the way. Nicky was very knowledgeable and in the last few weeks before the wedding made sure everything was covered and reminded us about everything we needed to do.
Venue - The Cisswood is an attractive hotel with beautiful gardens, plenty of pretty photo opportunities. When we arrived on the day, the room looked amazing (with a little help from Claire at Amaryllis Events who dressed the room with drapes, fairy lights, table covers and sashes)
Food - On the day the food was brilliant and many people commented on how much they enjoyed it. Particularly the duck starter and the apple and pear crumble for pudding.
Service - Nicky, Claire, Gary, Martinette, Adnan, Sophie - to name but a few all were brilliant. They knew exactly what they were doing, communicated very well throughout the day and were on hand whenever needed. We kept nearly exactly to the times thanks to the organisation of the team.
Rooms - 51 rooms available. We were given a tour of the best rooms which we hand picked for the closest members of the family and Claire handled the bookings for the rest. All the rooms we saw were clean, tidy and generous in size.
Would not hesitate to recommend to others. Thank you so much to all... including Martin Ayley photography, Simon at Egg Cosy pictures and Claire at Amaryllis events. Truly the best day of our lives!
The most magical day ever!

We got married at the Cisswood House Hotel on 30th December 2011. We had the most magical day for our Wedding. The venue was a perfect choice, wonderful surroundings and fantastic food. Gary, the duty manager made everything run like clockwork and without him we would not have had the day we had. Nicky and staff carried our all desires making everything perfect and totally stress free. Totally recommend this venue.
Perfect Wedding Venue with great team of staff

We got married on New Years Eve at Cisswood House and it was perfect. Nicky, Claire, Gary, Martinet and all the staff were great, helping us plan the day and everything ran like clockwork. The food was delicious (Beef Wellington) and the room was huge and luxurious. Definitely recommend!!
Beautiful location, fantastic staff
By Mr and Mrs Horner, on 24 Aug 2011
We held our wedding reception at the Cisswood on 28th July 2011. From start to finish all the hotel staff were extremely helpful, friendly and supportive (thanks Nicky et al) the day went without a single hitch, our Duty Manager Gary deserves a special mention for his professionalism and calm presence. The meal we chose was excellent quality and served promptly and efficiently. Many of our guests stayed overnight and had only positive things to say about the hotel. We would recommend this venue without hesitation. The grounds of the hotel are a particular feature, and if like us, you are lucky enough to pick a sunny day you can enjoy a drink and photos in the garden with your guests. We will be returning to the Cisswood soon as one day was not enough !!!
THE MOST PERFECT DAY EVER!
By Mr and Mrs Howard, on 23 Aug 2011
My Husband and I got married as Cisswood House Hotel on the 30 July, 2011. We were fortunate enough to have perfect weather and were able to be married in the hotels grounds - which are stunningly beautiful.
The day went perfectly without a hitch and this was due to the excellent and professional support from Nicky Hayward (Events Coordinator) and her team in the lead up to and the actual day itself. Nothing was ever to much, all of our and our guests needs were catered for and so much more! From the organising and advise of local companies, choosing our food to the smooth running of the day itself by their own toastmaster Gary - Cisswood is truly amazing and we would whole heartedly advise people to go there for their wedding.
The staff are so friendly, the food elegant and very tasty (especially the chocolate torte), the hotel and grounds are classy and beautiful – PERFECTION!
We truly had a day to remember and never forget, we will definitely be visiting again for our anniversary and any other excuse that we can find.

I got married at Cisswood on 3rd June 2011 and it was just perfect! I can not fault a thing... even the breakfast the next day was spot on.
I had lots of contact with Nicky prior to the wedding and I felt at ease at all times. No question seemed an effort to answer and I got responses immediately.
The menu tasting was great fun and we felt like VIPs.
On the day the team were amazing, everything ran very smoothly and the guests had a great time!
The food was exactly the same as the food tasting which is a great credit to the chef considering we had 90 guests and no one had a 'iffy' meal.
Def recommend this as a wedding venue and so grateful to Nicky and the team for making it a dream wedding
