Best Wedding Venue Ever!
We had our wedding at Deans Place at the end of June.....I couldn’t recommend them more, the hotel and grounds are beautiful and perfect for a summer wedding and the staff were exceptional! They were friendly, helpful and well organised.....big thank you to Sam and Jo and their teams who played a massive part in making our day special and perfect, nothing was a problem and our guests couldn’t have been more complimentary about all the staff and the food (which was delicious!) Thank you so much Deans Place you made it a truly unforgettable day!Sent on 26/08/2019

We held our wedding reception at Deans Place hotel. The attention to detail by Katie during the organising stages was fabulous and made the whole task so much easier. On the day Katie and the two Jo’s were just fantastic, The service was outstanding and nothing was too much trouble! They made sure our day just perfect. Deans place is a Lovely country hotel with beautiful gardens and a terrace with far reaching views over the South downs. We had great service and a warm friendly welcome. The hotel will always have a special place in our hearts x

Pretty country rural retreat
Efficient friendly service from wedding coordinator from beginning and throughout plus staff friendly and helpful. Pretty garden with immaculate lawn for drinks reception with garden games and photos. Plentiful fresh afternoon tea, dietary requirements correct, nice affordable wines in spacious airy Alfriston suite. 95% happy but some small things could be improved such as serving children’s drinks earlier during wedding breakfast, cake earlier in evening , correct canape ( ordered chicken skewer but got a chicken wing) but only little things and didn’t ruin amazing day. Had reserved table ( sort of- needed reserved sign on table to make it clearer) for a family breakfast the next day which was nice too and invites under door night .before- nice touch. Reserved parking for family in the car park was also handy but would have been handy to tell family it would only say ‘reserved’not their names as confusing on arrival. Would recommend Deans and little things didn’t spoil amazing day.Sent on 07/04/2019
