We had a magical day
By Johnston and Smith Wedding, on 12 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Apr 2018
Thanks for getting In touch. We received the voucher and card, we were delighted!
We couldn't have planned the wedding without you, you've done such a great job.
We had a magical day but it went so quickly
The staff on the day couldn't have done more for us. Sophie was great but i have to say Fiona was exceptional, she went above and beyond and nothing was too much for her. She's a real credit to the hotel!
It truly was perfect

Good evening Jack,
Thank you very much. Apologies for the late reply, we have been rather busy.
We would just like to say thank you, and that the day was absolutely perfect. We were so impressed with everything. Sophie and her team were superb and on the ball, and everything went smoothly and looked amazing.
Thank you all for making our day an unforgettable one, it truly was perfect.
All the best,

Sophie from the operations team was outstanding. She met with us the day before the wedding and put all of
our worrying at ease. She was superb with our requests and made the day as amazing as possible. She is a
credit to the team.
We also received amazing feedback from all of our friends and family regarding the food presentation and
the taste of the food itself.
Giving us the option to substitute the wine for beer was probably one of the best decisions we made so the
fact that Katie made this possible meant a lot to us.
Harrison on the bar was amazing with our children and friendly with all of the guests, no matter what request
we had (fake ‘champagne’ for the kids was a god send).
Maria (I think) on reception was so helpful when I needed to resolve a room booking error. Even when I was
phoning on the morning of the wedding, whilst getting ready, she was super helpful and made sure I wasn’t
stressed out over it.
Thank you so much to the whole team at Cotswold Water Park Hotel as they made the day amazing and
stress-free for us as well as all of our guests, who still mention how amazing the day was. It really meant a lot
that our venue cares so much about their couples and their guests.
Dreams do come true

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for helping us with the most amazing day ever. We could not be happier with how the day went and how beautiful the rooms were decorated, the staff and yourself were nothing more than wonderful. Even seeing you peep through the door before I got married lifted me.
It was the most amazing day, we had an amazing time, can we say a special thank you to kelsie, she was so lovely throughout service and was increasingly helpful when it came to tidying up, she literally went above and beyond to help us and transfer all she could to our room, she was very thoughtful about how she left our room. That made our day.
So kelsie thank you for helping our day run so smoothly.
Thank you so very much, can’t wait to see the amazing photos.
Thanks for making my dreams come true

Our first meeting at the hotel was with Lisa who has many years of experience with weddings and we were confident that we were in good hands. Nothing was too much trouble even me being fussy and wanting a bespoke menu. As the months counted down to the wedding Lisa would check in with us ensuring that everything was going well and more importantly how we were, always offering her help and recommendations (which were always great!).
With a week to go we visited the hotel and Lisa introduced us to Sophie who was going to look after us on the day, Sophie was highly professional and ran us through the plan of the day, she also gave some great recommendations that we hadn't thought about.
Then came the big day, my wife had stayed in one of the apartments at the hotel the night before with her mother and bridesmaids. I would highly recommend doing this to anyone thinking of getting married here as it takes a lot of stress out of the morning as the bride is already there and the team onsite looked after them making sure that my wife was kept up to date on what was happening i.e. that the room was all ready, that I had arrived, etc.
The day went extremely smoothly and this was due, in no small part to Sophie and her team. She ushered us around and made sure that everything was beyond perfect. Sophie and the team did not stop working throughout the day and I can not thank them enough for all their hard work, nothing was too much trouble.
I have no qualms in posting this 5 star review. To all the staff at the hotel... Thank You!

We went to a wedding fayre at the De Vere Cotswold Water Park, where we met Lisa a (hotel Coordinator) who gave us lots of information about getting married at the hotel. So we decided to book the mallard suite for our venue which was perfect light and had magnificent views over the lake. Lisa was the perfect coordinator she was on hand throughout on the end of the phone or email what ever question we asked she always had the right answer. Two days before our wedding we changed to the Wedding Day coordinate this was Sophie and her team who also was very efficient and helpful. The ceremony room looked over the lake which was a fantastic setting! The wedding breakfast was superbly cooked and served by efficient staff With a separate menu for the children which worked very well, this was also served in a room overlooking the lake which everyone said was beautiful!! We then had a break for everyone to freshen up before the evening disco etc began Sophie and her team then delivered the hog roast with a selection of salads. Guests of the wedding party were able to book rooms at discounted prices too. We were very happy with our wedding day at The De Vere Cotswold Water Park I would rate it 100% excellent
Thank you for everything

We had an absolutely amazing day and it couldn't have gone any better! Everything went perfectly and we have you and your staff to thank for that!
I also must add that Sophie was the best person ever to have as your right hand man(lady). She did everything brilliantly and is a lovely lovely person! She did a great job from the day before right until the end of the evening! She's a star!!

We chose the venue back in July 2015 after viewing and seeing the hotel we completely fell in love with the surroundings and view and knew it was the perfect place for us to get married we wasn't disappointed that's for sure from the very first email we received the service given to us was first class we were completely wowed in how professional and lovely all Cotswold staff where. We decided we would stay for the weekend and try it all out (undercover) to see if we still were given the same treatment and we was not disappointed at all the weekend we spend in the hotel and spa was truly unforgettable, I knew we had made the right decision booking our wedding there, lisa the wedding Cordinator helped me in the build up to the wedding, planning and organising everything in making sure the whole wedding was everything we wanted without her expert skills I'm not sure I would of coped at all everything down to seating drinks food ideas she had the answers for everything, On the day of our wedding 21/01/17 staff at Cotswold made our day super special the events manger did such an amazing job in over looking everything our day ran so smoothly it was everything we wished for and More, infact all staff were surperb the bar staff, kitchen staff, down to the man who drove me over in the golf buggy we had 150 people attend our wedding and every single guest was completely overwhelmed in the whole day surroundings food service staff we can't thank four pillars enough for making our dream wedding come true and We look forward to spending many more weekends there in the future

What can I say!? Lisa and her team were nothing short of incredible! We had a big wedding with some complicated requests, and absolutely nothing was too much trouble on the day. The food was lovely, the staff were superb and the whole day was perfect. Many of our guests stayed for the whole weekend and commented on how much they enjoyed their stay. Everything went to plan and I know how hard Lisa and her team worked to get the ceremony and reception rooms looking so beautiful. Requests were met without hesitation and professionally dealt with. I would highly recommend the De Vere without hesitation, our day was amazing!!!
Beautiful Venue with Friendly Staff
By Mr & Mrs Wilson, on 02 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 10 Sep 2016
Both our wedding ceremony and evening reception were held in the Mallard Suite of the Cotswold Water Park Hotel in September 2016. The venue was stunning and both the ceremony and wedding breakfast room had a fantastic view of the lake, which looked great in our wedding photos! The staff were incredibly friendly and were on hand to assist with whatever we needed. The Mallard Suite is set up to be very disabled friendly, which was an important factor to us. The hotel were incredibly accommodating and were happy to make any further changes required to suit our disabled guests. They were even happy to amend our catering orders to suit fussy eaters. Lisa, the wedding planner, and Sophie, the wedding coordinator, were both fantastic. Lisa made numerous suggestions to help our day run smoothly while Sophie was immediately on hand on the day to help with anything we needed.
