Venue Service

By Amie Macura, on 09 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Oct 2019

All team members were incredibly helpful. Natassia Robinson, Tasha Eden and Damien all went out of their way to make sure we had a very special day. Thank you all.

Big Thank You
Venue Service

By Laura Pearce, on 09 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 12 Oct 2019

We wanted to say a big thank you for all your help in making our wedding such a fab day! We enjoyed every minute and really appreciated knowing that all the arrangements were in such safe hands and that all the small details were taken care of ?? We have had lots of comments from our guests about how much they liked the venue and how good the food was! I did also want to pass on particular thanks to Helen who coordinated the wedding breakfast - it was so well organised and the tables were set up beautifully (I couldn't have done it better myself!).

Firstly yourself for being with us since the first booking and putting us at ease after a bad experience with De Vere Latimer Estate, even little things on the day like getting a meal changed for Karl's step dad as he ordered the wrong thing and helping my mum with her corsage. You made getting married 3 hours away from where we live so easy. You were always our first point of contact and always got back to any requests as quick as possible. You really were amazing! Damian, he could not do enough for us, anything we asked for he made sure he sorted it. The restaurant on Friday was fully booked but he made sure he got us a table. Again with getting Karl a slot to play golf. He never made us feel like anything was too much. We has asked for Karl's dad to have coke on the table for the wedding breakfast as he can't have alcohol due to medical reasons and Damian made sure it was on there ready for him, little things like this are what make the day special. Liam, same as above and he was really good at going through the paperwork with me and making sure they had everything down. He even took me through the wedding room at 11pm the night before so he could make sure everything was right. Rachel, she worked the bar and any time we were in the building she would come and have a chat and let us know little tips on how things have worked for previous weddings to give us some ideas, she even showed us the pop up bar on a previous visit so we could see it and we really appreciated everything she did.

Extra Special
Venue Service

By Alanna Dickson, on 09 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 31 Aug 2019

The staff at the venue from the managers to the wedding planner, bar staff, waitresses etc all went the extra mile. All of our guests commented on how amazing the venue, grounds, service food and drinks were. I would highly recommend this venue for a wedding or likewise event. They really made our big day extra special for us.

Disappointed, understaffed and upset
Venue Service

By Emma Lewis, on 01 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 29 Jun 2019

The 18 months run up we had a fair few wedding planners, however we has Tasha for the majority, she was lovely and made us feel as though our day would be what we had dreamt of! Unfortunately a couple of months beforehand it started to go pear shaped. We had a call to say that someone had exclusively booked out the venue the day before, so despite booking rooms to stay the night before, we couldn't stay there and were being moved out! We let it go and carried on with the plans, but we needn't had bothered as all plans, accessories and ideas never came together. The bar was never staffed and when it was they said they couldn't serve as they weren't bar trained, nothing we had discussed in the month running up was carried through as we were not made aware we would have an 'ops manager' running our wedding... Whom we had never met, never bothered to get to know our wedding and resulted in me spending my wedding day in tears. If I wrote everything out that was disappointing I would have to attach my 4 page complaint letter. To which an insulting offer of refund was made and were basically told if we didn't accept it they would withdraw the offer. Please please please look at other venues first, we will forever regret having our reception here and have now booked another one to have the day we really wanted. Make sure you get everything promised to you in writing as then staff go back and say they have never said it and make you to look like you are lying. Still to this day I get very tearful and the insulting refund has made this no better.

Best Day of Our Lives
Venue Service

By Jemma Vora, on 09 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 16 Jun 2019

We had our Civil Wedding and Engagement ceremony at this beautiful De Vere hotel earlier this year and we had the best day of our lives. Everything ran so smoothly, the staff (in particular Andy from Operations and Natasha from wedding & events were great! The lengths they went to ensure our day was perfect was really appreciated and all our family and friends were very impressed with the venue. The hospitality I was provided for my stay by Andy was excellent aswell and he made me feel very at ease before my big day. Overall, I couldn’t recommend this venue enough, not only is it beautiful from the inside and outside but the staff are very accommodating. Thank you to the De Vere team.

Venue Service

By Soneji and Madlani, on 07 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Jun 2019

Thank you so much!!! I’ve been meaning to email you this last week but got a little caught up. Thank you for absolutely everything, you were such a pleasure to work with and you helped us have the most perfect day. You were always so super patient with me, and having you there with us on the day was really nice. The staff and everybody at the hotel were all so accommodating and I would highly Recommend it as a wedding venue for future couples. Once I do get any pictures back I will definitely send them on to you.
