Not recommended for your wedding!
Venue Service

By Allan Wills, on 23 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 12 Jul 2019

This 'wedding' venue chose a corporate event over my son's wedding. We had a number of guests traveling internationally from Australia, Africa and Spain, and with 4 weeks notice cancelled on over 50 guests - and only offered to change the bride and groom's room (1 room of all guests) to THE BEST WESTERN!! They booked a suite for the wedding morning for when they got dressed - and all the venue offered for all the inconvenience and drama cause was to move ONE reservation to a Best Western. The unnecessary stress caused in having to re-locate accommodation for more than 50 guests, change all suppliers (car service, photographer, videographer, hair, make up), plus have to check-out/check-in and move their luggage was never considered and the venue never offered even an apology for this. I wouldn't recommend this venue if you are looking for an enjoyable wedding experience. Was very hard to watch such a special day be impacted by such rude staff. There was no empathy by the staff or understanding. It was a shambles and terrible experience.

Ruined our wedding
Venue Service

By Leanne Fernandes, on 22 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 12 Jul 2019

I would avoid booking such an important day with this venue. 4 weeks before our wedding, they cancelled all our accommodation and guests accommodation as a corporate client wanted exclusive access. They offered no remediation nor remedy - and left us to solve >50 guests accommodation in summer the Cotswolds with 4 weeks notice. We never received an apology and the general manager refused to meet us, our parents nor take a phone call to discuss. When I was informed and said I pictured getting ready in the suite booked the morning of my wedding - I was told ‘this isn’t their problem’ and that I only had a contract the evening of the wedding with them so to figure something myself. When my parents advise it was a breach of contract to on-sell our accommodation and guests accommodation for exclusive use, the response by the hotel was ‘so, sue us’. We received calls all the way up to the wedding from guests complaining about how rude the reservation team was when’s cancelling their bookings. It was a continuous nightmare in the lead up to an important day, which should have been joyous and exciting. Truly the most horrendous customer experience imaginable and I wouldn’t wish this upon any other couple for such an importantly day!!

10 out of 10!
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Zichittella, on 30 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Jun 2019

Abbie, Laz and Neil made our day very special. Laz was excellent on the day with dealing with any additional requirements and was always friendly and approachable. Both Laz and Neil ensured the day went off without a hitch. Abbie was incredibly thorough in our wedding planning and met every requirement we had. We have also had numerous guests advise us that they thought the food was outstanding, so would like to also recognise the kitchen staff. Our wedding at De Vere Tortworth Court was incredible and we have recommended the hotel to our friends and family. 10/10!

Thank you so much for making our day perfect
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Capaldi, on 18 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 03 Mar 2019

A huge thank you to Abbie, Patrick and team. Their help and service was second to none and even our guests spoke to us afterwards complimenting on the team's service! Thank you so much for making our day perfect. We were also glad to be the hotel's first outdoor reception this year!

Dream wedding at the dream venue
Venue Service

By Lorna Preston & Jennifer Preston, on 15 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 20 May 2017

Tortworth really made sure that we had the absolute perfect day and the whole team were only too happy to help in any way they could. Lorna our wedding planner was so personable and helped deliver our dream wedding exactly as we had envisioned it. Not only that but the venue looked absolutely stunning and all of our guests were so impressed. Everyone thought we must have spent a fortune to have such a gorgeous, luxurious venue but actually the venue was such good value for money that we managed to stay well within our budget booking Tortworth.

Lovely except Little Miss Thingz stationary
Venue Service

By Joanne, on 29 Sep 2014

We had a wonderful wedding and all the team on the day made it so wonderful. We had lots of compliments about the venue and food and the team did everything they could on the day to make our day perfect. I am not the type of person to complain but have decided for the sake of future couples to post this review about the service we received from Little Miss Thingz who is the hotel's wedding stationary provider. She several times failed to respond to emails, we only had two choices of table plan ( one being a plastic trellis affair-classy!) , she never checked the table plan with us which was a huge shame given the table plan that was provided by her was outrageoulsly poor. Infact throughout our dealings with her we have been concerned by the restricted choice, the very basic designs, constant misspelling and mispronouciation and her failure to reply to our emails. For our table plan there were different font size used for different names. On one table 5 out of the 8 names were misspelled on this table. She even misspelled my sister’s name – again the correct spelling was provided in my email. Most embarrassingly of all she left off one guest from the table plan altogether although a place name and setting had been laid from him. Again, he had been included in my email to her. It was only because this guest raised this with us on the day which was the reason we looked at the table plan and then noticed all the errors on it. Although we had explained to Little Miss Thingz how we wanted the top table set and this was shown in my email, when my mum had gone to check it Little Miss Thingz had actually set out the placecards so that the groom and I were on the end of the table not in line with the plan. This caused a last minute flurry to put the settings in the correct order. I just want to repeat that we were happy with the hotel’s service and all our other suppliers. But the service we received from her was really not worth the £250 she charged. We had the to toastmaster and used the recommended florist the Sodbury Florist who were great. However as I have set out the stationary service has been extremely unprofessional and disappointing. I really hope this was a one off and no other couple experience this. Tortworth Court have not pursued me for the £180 outstanding to Little Miss Thingz as I have raised my concerns with them, but really it is not about the money but the poor service. We frankly would have been better off doing the stationary ourselves. Tortworth say they are addressing it with the service provider, but if it is your wedding be warned and don't find yourselves in my position with stationary which is misspelled and guests missed off!

Thank You Very Much

Amazing service at a beautiful venue
Venue Service

By Heather & Mark Smith, on 26 Apr 2013

This is just a quick note to you all, and indeed to the staff who were on duty, to say a very big thank you for all your help and understanding, when we had to re-arrange the wedding at very short notice just two weeks before the date due to problems with our other venue. You were all very sympathetic and on the day helpfull and made everything run very smoothly. Many of our guests said what a beautiful venue it was, how pleasant the staff were and that the marquee had been set up amazingly. Once again thank you all for making our daughters wedding day so special
