Absolutely Outstanding - made our wedding day perfect.

We just got married here last week, and while the memory is fresh I wanted to write a review of Crathorne Hall - booking Crathorne Hall as our wedding venue has been the BEST decision we have made in this entire wedding planning process. What sets Crathorne Hall apart from the rest is their staff. We have been to a good handful of wedding venues, and have encountered many different service staff.

Crathorne Hall immediately stood out to us as a friendly, warm place and that is one of the reasons we booked it. Sure enough, the staff has been outstanding from start to end. From our wedding coordinator Stacey (a very professional, detail-oriented, warm and lovely lady) to the porter, to the receptionist team, to the waiters and waitresses - everyone is so warm and genuinely such nice people, ready to go above and beyond to help you. The porter for instance kept asking guests if they needed help, and before they could answer would already be taking all their luggages and through doors with warm smiles!
The entire team is personable and made us feel so special on our wedding day - even though they probably witness multiple weddings a month, but they made us feel so special.

Throughout the wedding planning process, every time we needed something out of the ordinary, they were more than happy to help us make it happen where possible. The attitude of everyone at Crathorne Hall is exemplary. The unique essence of Crathorne Hall is that it feels more like a family-run business, and in no way feels corporate.

Yet, the hotel grounds are breathtaking, and the interiors of the halls are absolutely beautiful. There is nothing garish about it. All the interiors are classy and elegant, and again another reason why we chose it. They use neutral colours like white and gold to make it so.

Price wise - GREAT value for money. The cost we paid included 37 rooms which I think is at a great bargain compared to many other Venues we looked at.

The rooms are faultless - beautiful victorian-style rooms. We have had nothing but positive feedback from guests on how comfortable and lush their rooms were.

Food-wise it is not the best food we've tasted, but to be honest coming from a foodie like myself that's ok. Everything else mentioned above more than makes up for it.

All in all - Crathorne Hall is outstanding. We cannot wait to return for future wedding anniversaries!

Couldn’t have asked for a better venue

Crathorne Hall Hotel went above and beyond to make our day truly amazing, with it being during covid times they allowed us to change our date with no hassle or extra charge, they tried their best to cater to our needs and make things easier for us. They were always quick to respond to queries on the lead up to the wedding and the customer service was just spot on. We dealt mainly with Stacey and she was just great and trust me I ask a lot of questions! The venue itself is beautiful and all the staff were so friendly and bubbly. Mo the toast master/organiser on the day was also brilliant, checked in regularly to make sure things were ok and flowing nicely, he handled everything and left myself and my husband stress free the whole day. He also has a good sense of humour. Our wedding day was better than we could have ever imagined. The outdoor tipi was definitely an added bonus which again was covered by Crathorne themselves without having to say anything just so we could enjoy our day as planned during covid times. Couldn’t recommend this venue highly enough, it was definitely the right choice! Thank you so much for making our day so special.

Wedding at Crathorne Hall

We booked our wedding at Crathorne Hall on quite short notice (2 months!) and from the beginning they were fantastic. I sent an enquiry email which they responded to on the same day, they sent over loads of helpful information and pricing for us to look at. Stacey was our wedding planner and she was just absolutely amazing, from the first email she went above and beyond to make sure our day went ahead on short notice and was exactly how we wanted it. Any questions we had she answered promptly, and she was helpful with making suggestions. The communication was first class, and I can’t put into words how friendly, attentive and reliable every single staff member was that was involved in the wedding.

On the wedding day we were assigned a toastmaster, Alan, who essentially organised the full day, told us where we needed to be and when, and made sure everything went smoothly. Alan also announced us for the first time as a married couple, the cutting of the cake and first dance etc. Alan was fantastic he really made the day feel so relaxed, made us feel at ease and made sure everything went perfectly as planned. He was a lovely guy who we are thankful was part of our day, we received a number of comments from guests and family about how professional and helpful he was on the day.

We stayed overnight after the wedding and again, the staff were just amazing in ensuring we had the perfect stay, they were so helpful and friendly.

Another thing we were taken aback by is the value for money and how decently priced our day was for everything we got!

I can’t recommend this venue enough, it’s absolutely stunning in beautiful scenery, and the staff went above and beyond for us at every stage of planning the wedding, and the day itself.

The Perfect Venue in every way….

I simply cannot praise this place enough. The Service and professionalism was absolutely faultless from the start when we booked the Venue. Nicola our Wedding co-ordinator was fantastic and nothing was too much and she made our lives so much easier during the planning stage and on the Wedding day.
Alan who organised things on the day was also brilliant and ensured the day ran smoothly.
The offer for the exclusive package meant that a large chunk of the cost for the day was covered by selling the rooms at the Venue to our guests at a reduced rate (the guests were amazed at the standard of the rooms for this price!). It also made a large Wedding affordable!

Thank you to Nicola and all of the Crathorne staff for all of your help over the last 18 months. You made our Special day just perfect!

The best experience and the best day.

We had the most amazing day for our wedding at Crathorne Hall, not only is the venue itself stunning but the staff are fantastic too. It was everything we could have dreamed of and more. A special mention goes to Krista, our wedding coordinator who has been amazing. The wedding had to be postponed from last year and she has been so kind, understanding and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Also to Mo, who was fantastic and extremely attentive on the day! Everything was easily transferred across from our original date and the team really did help us in what was an upsetting time. The personalised bear that we were given as a gift was just a beautiful touch too. So thank you so much Crathorne Hall. Would highly recommend the hotel to anyone planning a wedding.

The best day!

We booked Crathorne for our wedding after our original venue was unwilling to hold smaller weddings (due to the pandemic). This was the best decision we made! The staff were so helpful throughout the build up to the wedding and the team were willing to be flexible and work around whatever the restrictions would be when the big day came. We finally got married in June (14 months after our original date) and had an amazing day with our nearest and dearest. Despite some restrictions still being in place at that time, the staff made the day feel as normal as possible and we all had a brilliant time. The venue is lovely and quality of the food and drink was excellent. Our wedding planner, Stacey, was so helpful and our toastmaster, Mo, ensured that the whole day went smoothly. We’re looking forward to returning to Crathorne in the future to celebrate our anniversary!

The day was fantastic, it was absolutely perfect..

Can we just take this opportunity to say that the day was just fantastic, it was absolutely perfect.
The staff really are a credit to Crathorne and couldn’t have done any more on the day. Your regular suppliers that we used (First Class Wedding Company, LMS Entertainment, Ultimate Wedding DJ) were great to work with and it shows that you have a close working relationship with them.

We have received such wonderful feedback from our guests, and we really wanted it to be a weekend that everyone would enjoy, and it certainly was that! We feel very fortunate to have stumbled across Crathorne in our search for a venue (Chris feels smug as he found it!) and it really was the exclusive yet intimate venue that we dreamed of finding!

Thank you so much for making our dream day possible.

A massive thank you to all of the staff at Crathor

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to all of the staff at Crathorne.
We had the most perfect day and we can’t thank you enough. The venue itself is beautiful but the staff amplified that throughout the day by being so helpful, friendly and tentative.

I would especially like to give a big shout out to Mo who made myself and Ben feel at ease all day and made the day run so smoothly.

I just wanted to say how brilliant our day was...from start to finish. It ran perfectly without fault, Mo was fantastic! He did not stop all day and has the patience of a saint. Such a lovely man.

Nicola, thank you for all your hard work on the run up to the day. Having someone like yourself really does make the experience of planning a wedding so much easier. Thank you so much for only being an email away.

Thanks again to all the staff that helped make our day so special.

Mr and Mrs Collins

P.s. We've found the perfect place for our Crathorne Bear. What a lovely little touch!!

Everything was fabulous.

My son was married here in August, Everything was fabulous, the staff could not do enough for you, from the minute we arrived on the morning of the wedding until when we left the next day. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was superb and of course it goes without saying Crathorne Hall itself is just stunning.
We had the best day ever.

Our wedding day was completely amazing!

We just wanted to thank you for making our wedding day completely amazing.

From the night before until the day after we had the most unforgettable experience. Thank you all for being so accommodating and friendly.

Nathan, thank you for making sure the whole day went without a hitch and for making sure everything was the way we had hoped.

Thank you so much to the chef for creating the perfect wedding menu for us. The wedding breakfast was amazing and the tribute to Sam's Mum. The Melanzane was incredible and all of our guests commented on how good this was.

Krista thank you for arranging everything and answering all my questions.

We cannot think of a better place for us to get married, the setting and staff are fantastic and we were so lucky to get the snow that we did!

Crathorne is a special venue...

As an international bride, it was a challenge to plan a wedding long distance. The entire staff at Crathorne Hall made the experience stress-free and helped in every way possible. I appreciated everything you did from finding trusted vendors, giving travel tips, and even finding somewhere to steam my dress after a 10 hour flight. I knew a destination wedding was going to be fun, but Crathorne is a special venue. Every time we turned a corner we found a happy family member or close friend. The entire weekend felt like one big celebration. I will remember this experience in vivid detail for the rest of my life. We will be back for anniversaries time and time again.
