Our Wedding Venue

This hotel is very welcoming. Everything we could of imagined for our special day. Staff very attentive. The venue spacious and looked stunning.

Jake is a great wedding planner with a fab sense of humour putting us at ease on the big day. The team at the Hilton couldn't do enough for us. Very professional from start to finish Paul and Jake making sure the day ran smoothly. Bar staff chatty polite.

The Team Very understanding when I had sickness on the day. The staff went above and beyond dispite obstacles and offering dried toast. Dispite not feeling my best I still had the most amazing day. I would highly recommend this hotel. Beds comfy. Very spacious rooms clean. Communication was on point. Some of our guess thought it was the best Wedding they've ever been too

Great Wedding Service

My husband and I just got married here and we had a brilliant time! Jake Bowerman (Wedding and Social Events Executive) who helped us plan is so lovely and incredibly helpful. He made sure we had a wonderful day and good stay. The only issue we had was the restaurant, we never got our dinner one night as we were waiting ages and the breakfast was a bit of a nightmare. However Jake did what he could to make up the dinner issue and breakfast was just too many people so not necessarily the hotels fault. Overall I was happy with our experience though mainly due to Jake's assistance.

Wedding 12.08.2019

To the team at doubletree,
We had our wedding at your venue and all I can say over and over is THANKYOU!!!
Myself and my husband as soooooo grateful our day was much more special then we imagined.
This is mainly down to Jake our coordinator who managed to not only help plan but deal with the groomzilla sooo brilliantly!
Not forgetting Marcus our go to guy for the day! Nothing was too much trouble, he was there at the times we needed him before we even knew we did.
Both Jake and Marcus were professional but more importantly to us friendly! We couldn’t of ask for better!
Enough of singing there praises a massive thankyou to everyone behind the scenes we know there was lots of people helping and involved and without them our day would have been much different.
The food for our sit down meal was lovely and all the guest commented on how after such a nice meal the standards were then raised by a fantastic hot and cold buffet for the evening reception.
The hotel itself was clean and tidy, spacious and relaxed. The grounds for our wedding photos were beautifully maintained and we had lots of places to get some fantastic shots.
Check in and check out was mainly smooth and pleasant and the desk staff were polite and helpful.

Now for all the good bits to finish.

The only reason i cannot give a full top mark rating is because I found the beds to be too firm and a few of my guest also felt the same but luckily groomzilla loves a firm mattress and slept soundly.

Again a huge thank you too you all!

Would definitely recommend as the perfect wedding venue

Waters Wedding 2019

We had the most amazing wedding at the doubletree, it was the most fantastic day with friends and family. Jake (our wedding co-ordinator) was fantastic from start to finish, he couldn’t be more helpful, friendly and supportive. I would highly recommend using Jake as he literally made sure everything was fantastic and left me with no stress or worry for our big day. He is also extremely personable, easy to get along with and extremely accommodating, thank you Jake! Marcus who led the festivities was amazing, so attentive and reassuring, all our guest commented about how smoothly things were run so thank you Marcus! The hotel and people that ensured it took place were amazingly professional and friendly. Our magical day was made possible with the help of these people and I can not recommend enough. The rooms and house keeping were to a very high standard and all guest were impressed with a lovely breakfast in the morning. Thank you for making sure our day was everything we wished for.

Our Wonderful Wedding

We had our wedding at the DoubleTree Hilton hotel in Southampton in July 2019 and it was perfect. The staff were incredibly helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The wedding planner, Jake, worked with us in the months leading up to the wedding and was so kind and creative. We had a Disney themed wedding and he was brilliant at coming up with fun ideas to add even more Disney magic to our day. He was endlessly enthusiastic and was completely committed to making our day perfect and utterly personal to us. And he was so lovely to work with. We really liked him the second we met him.
On the morning of the wedding, Jake got in really early and made sure the room looked perfect for us. From blowing up balloons to retying all our chair sashes to make them look like Minnie Mouse bows, nothing was too much trouble.
They all worked so hard to make our day perfect and we can't praise them enough.
The hotel was a lovely setting and the ceremony and reception room looked beautiful. There's really pretty woodland around the hotel that looks stunning in the photos and the fairy lights in the ceremony room looked magical.
The food was fantastic and looked really well presented. Better still, it tasted incredible and the portion sizes were really generous, both for the main meal and the evening buffet. We had a few guests with very specific dietary requirements and they were really accommodating and made sure everyone got exactly what food they could eat so we didn't need to worry.
We were given the bridal suite for the night and the room was lovely.
Our wedding package was fantastic value for money too. I can't recommend the DoubleTree Hilton hotel in Southampton enough.

Wedding 22.06.2019

Wow what can I say we had our wedding here on Saturday 22/06/19 and it was everything I had hoped for, from the very start Jake Bowerman (wedding co-ordinator) was so professional so kind, so caring and made it stress free, he alleviated any concerns and made everything run smoothly. His communication skills were fantastic throughout the whole experience, and to see him on the actual day I knew everything would go to plan. Thank you so much Jake and the Hilton hotel for making my wedding the best I could imagine it to be, we had such an amazing day and wish we could do it all again with you.

Our Wedding Day

Well, what can we say about this amazing venue!
It was perfect in every way, the location was wonderful and the staff couldn’t do enough for us on the day.
The day went without a hitch and was in no small part due to Jake Bowerman, our wedding planner. He planned everything to the minutest detail and told us everything about what would happen on the day.
He put us both at our ease on the day. We both enjoyed our day enormously.

Nothing Ever Too Much

Recently had our wedding here. Would highly recommend Jake, our wedding coordinator as nothing was ever too much and he made sure our special day went as planned, with everything as we wanted also. The staff on the day were also amazing and the hotel rooms were great as well, with exceptionally good food for our set menu and buffet. Would definitely recommend this hotel. Special thanks again to Jake for making our day so special and to all the staff who helped on our day at DoubleTree.
