I can highly recommend the De Vere Cotswolds Water
Venue Service

By Claire White, on 19 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Jun 2019

I thought that the whole team who dealt with us were brilliant from start to finish. Stacey Renouf looked after us from our first meeting to view the hotel until our wedding day and was professional and accommodating and steered us in the right direction at all points, she was very calm and organised which reassured us and made the process very easy for us. I would like to recognise the gentleman who looked after us on the day and who was co-ordinating everything but I can't remember his name, again he was great as were all the staff. My guests had a wonderful day as did we and were impressed with the hotel, location and views along with the food. I can highly recommend the De Vere Cotswolds Water Park

We arranged a viewing at this venue around 18 months before and just walking into the reception I knew this is where I wanted to spend my wedding day. The venue is beautiful, the staff are helpful and friendly and there was nothing we could fault! During our 18 months of planning I was in constant contact with our wedding coordinator ‘Stacey’. No question was too big or small for them, no requirements or requests were too much either. I always got email replies straight away and they made me feel so relaxed that I could trust them with all of our plans. The day before the wedding, my bridesmaids and I all had a meal and were given a glass of bubbly to celebrate! They treated us like we were having the only wedding in the world. The morning of the wedding I had three members of staff (poly, lewis and Hugh), who helped run our wedding day. I never saw them without a smile on their face and were so helpful. Our day ran so smoothly and if there were any problems they would of sorted it as I wasn’t aware of anything. The whole day was just amazing, all the guests had a great day. We cannot thank the hotel and staff enough. Megan & Ian Wills

Stacey was excellent, Gareth (FBM) was very attentive in the week leading up to the wedding which made it more special and a nice touch considering we just happened to bump into him when doing a last minute check. Hugh who looked after us on the day, I couldn't have asked for more and he made sure that everything I'd asked for in terms of additional decorating was done himself, it was perfect.

Stacey the wedding coordinator was excellent in helping us plan the day and was very knowledgeable in how the day should go. And on the day Hugh was brilliant in getting people to be where they should at certain times. The whole team was Brilliant

“We looked at a number of locations and chose the De Vere Cotswold Waterpark because of its location, views of the lake and our initial meetings with the staff at the venue. The build up to the event was led by Stacey, who was pro-active, friendly and supportive making the whole process easy from our initial meeting to the actual day. Nothing was too much trouble as we finalised the details for our big day and by listenign to her suggestions we are able ot tailor the day to exactly as we wanted it. We first met Gareth we were having our food and beverage tasting and he led the team on the actual day of the wedding, he kept everything to time with a smile and a laugh, again making sure everything was perfect. We also decided we wanted a "photo booth" on the day and Faye and Jon (the Two Bonnies) did an amazing job - some of the photos make me laugh out loud and everyone enjoyed the experience (with a copy of any photos to take away). I would recommend the location and the people who made our day so special. Truly everyone exceeded our expectations and we had the most amazing time. Thank you all.”

Stacey, Gareth, Huw and Lewis provided an exceptional service. We felt like VIPs throughout the entire process and they were all a delight to work with. It was more like planning our wedding with friends rather than just the venue.

Amazing wedding
Venue Service

By Steph V, on 10 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 09 Mar 2019

On 9th March 2019 we had our wedding at the de vere, it was amazing. The staff throughout the whole planning and on the day was amazing, couldn't of asked for anything better. Would recommend anyone planning on having there day here to go with it, the staff can't do enough for you from when we arrived Friday afternoon to when we left on Sunday morning

I felt like royalty.
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Sheffield, on 23 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Nov 2018

My husband and I arranged for our wedding to be held in the Mallard Suite and the reception etc to follow on the 3rd November... We were greeted both by email and in person by the wonderful and professional Stacey. Straight away she made us feel at ease and nothing was too much trouble. She kept in good contact through all the planning phases and through our menu tasting right up to the day before. The afternoon before she handed us over to her equally fantastic colleague Claudia who was amazing throughout the set up and execution of our event. Particular attention was paid to the top table, my drink was never empty and I felt like royalty. Everything was how I could’ve wanted it, I really couldn’t have asked for more. I don’t have the pro photos as yet, but I can’t wait to share them with the team. I highly recommend putting your wedding into the safe hands of Stacey and Claudia! Anna also did a fab job later in the evening and the hotel duty managers were amazing also... Thank you all so much for making the day so perfect. See you all for our 1 year anniversary!

Bad service
Venue Service

By Liz McDemott, on 12 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 06 Oct 2018

I was a guest at a wedding here and from start to finish it was badly organised. From being short staffed and disorganised to bad food and very overpriced drinks

Nothing was too much trouble
Venue Service

By Jane Wheeler Mother of the Bride, on 02 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Sep 2018

Hi Stacey Just wanted to formally thank you for your hard work and effort in the organisation of Sarah and Andrew's Wedding on Saturday. Everyone loved the venue, the food and the drink. Everything went without a hitch on the day, which was fantastic! The staff were great and any requests were met with a smile and 'certainly' - nothing was too much trouble. You have a great team at the hotel, so please pass on my thanks to everyone else involved. Best wishes Jane

My new husband and I got married here on 25th Aug. Prior the day and the whole weekend we felt really looked after. Special mention to Andrew at concierge and Charlotte, our on the day events manager, for making our day so perfect and going above and beyond their role. We’ve been to this hotel many times and have always had a fantastic experience here
