Fantastic day
Venue Service

By Alice, on 06 May 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Apr 2018

We had our wedding at the Dower House in April and can't thank the team enough. Jonathan was great at communicating throughout the process and was a pleasure to deal with. The room was set up beautiful and the staff were polite and attentive without being intrusive. There was plenty of room for our guests to spread out and socalise. The food is fantastic and we can't wait to go back another meal there. Thanks again

On viewing the Dower House Hotel and Spa we were sold immediately! The grounds, decor and intimate feel we just what we were looking for. Having a drink we were introduced to Jonathan Summerton the General Manager and wedding pro!! Jonathan really took the time to understand what we wanted from our wedding and what the hotel could offer to complement our vision. After discussions with Jonathan and a tour of the hotel and facilities we booked. Jonathan was our dedicated contact throughout the whole planning phase and on the big day and was always on hand to answer our calls, meet with us as the big day drew closer and to oversee our fabulous day!! Choosing the menu for a wedding can be difficult but at The Dower House Hotel and Spa we were delighted to partake in the tasting session. little did we know that the food was of such a high standard that we wanted to choose the whole menu!! We cannot stress enough the exceptional quality of the food and the talent in the kitchen of this establishment!! On the morning of big day Jonathan and his team had much to organise as we had a team of event dressers, an artist for the evening reception and a large film crew arriving at the hotel, not to mention the hair and make-up, guests arriving and being a hotel they also had a breakfast sitting to deal with. The entire team were organised, helpful, composed, attentive and friendly amongst the chaos we brought! Every part of our big day ran to time and smoothly and this was due to the planning, efficiency and talent of Jonathan and the team. We would highly recommend this venue, facilities and excellent staff a 10/10

A Fantastic Special Day

By Janet & Andy Bairstow, on 03 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 04 Jun 2016

I would like to say a big thank you to Jonathan and the staff for making Jo & Simon's wedding a fantastic special day. I was very impressed with the organisation and planning of the wedding from the initial booking until the end. The room looked amazing, thank you, thank you for all of your effort in setting up the room. The day flowed smoothly and the timings were excellent. The quality of the food was excellent and everyone commented on it. We all had a wonderful time and it far exceeded our expectations. Once again we can't thank you enough.
