    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.

    Crathorne Hall Hotel's reply:

    Thank you for your wonderful words Jess, and congratulations again to you and Jonathan and hope you have settled into married life after 3 months. We are so pleased that you were finally able to celebrate your wedding day with family & friends and it was a pleasure to see it taking place after all the changes throughout Covid. We have a great team here at Crathorne and I know they will be delighted with the feedback from yourselves. Wishing you all the very best in your married life and future together. Best Wishes, Crathorne Hall Wedding Team.

    Lack of understanding and customer service

    Awful experience. The wedding was postponed due to covid. Treated like second class citizens. Told that we couldn't have a wedding there eventually as they'd changed their policy to min numbers of 50 so could either pay for an additional 20 guests or have money back. Avoid at all costs.

    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!

    Crathorne Hall Hotel's reply:

    Thank you Katie, I hope you and Ben have settled into married life these last few weeks and I am so pleased that you and your guests had a wonderful day, it was a pleasure to look after you on the lead up to your wedding and on the day. I will certainly pass on your kind words to the team who will be delighted. We look forward to welcoming you and your families back to Crathorne in the future. Best wishes

    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.

    Crathorne Hall Hotel's reply:

    Thank you for your wonderful words Erin, and congratulations again to you and Matthew and hope you have settled into married life after 2 months. We are so pleased that you were finally able to celebrate your wedding day with family & friends and it was a pleasure to see it taking place after all the changes throughout Covid. We have a great team here at Crathorne and I know they will be delighted with the feedback from yourselves. Wishing you all the very best in your married life and future together. Best Wishes, Crathorne Hall Wedding Team.

    Thank you soo much for everything you did...

    Thank you soo much for everything you did to help make our wedding day as perfect as it was!

    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!

    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.

    Rachel and Christopher Parker

    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.

    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.

    The day was beautiful and the staff were amazing. We could not have wished for a more perfect, stress free day.
    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.

    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!
