Absolutely Outstanding - made our wedding day perfect.
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
Wedding at Crathorne Hall
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….
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.
The best day!
Thank you soo much for everything you did...
The whole process from our first meeting up to the big day was made soo easy and fuss free by your organisation and kindness - we really couldn't have done it without you.
The day was perfect from start to finish, a huge thank you to Mo who had everything under control and did everything we asked for and more! He is a star!!
The rooms looked perfect and totally exceeded my expectations of how I wanted them to look, I was blown away!
All the staff are amazing and not just on the wedding day but throughout the whole time we have been planning our wedding, every time we have visited Crathorne hall we have been met by lovely polite and helpful staff who can't do enough for you!
Thank you all!
I don't really know what else to say but thank you thank you thank you!!!
You are all amazing!
All our love

The day was 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
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...
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.

Gloria was fantastic, and we were looked after by Alicia with afternoon tea, and Jim on the evening with our evening meal.
The food was superb and our room and views were amazing.
Could not have wished for a more perfect day.
