Couldn't have been more perfect

We held our wedding on 30th Sept 23 and we could not have chosen a more spectacular location whose friendly and dedicated team went above and beyond our expectations to make our day absolutely perfect.
From the meal the night before in the Chapel, the fantastic ceremony in the Orangery to the celebrations throughout the day, to the breakfast on Sunday morning, nothing was too much for them.

All the bedrooms and suites were of the highest standard with guests commenting how fabulous they were. To the smallest touches, such as the personalised Teddy bear for myself and my husband, everything was amazing.
The food and drink were exemplary from the cooking to the serving, we couldn't have asked for more.
It's a weekend we will remember, with memories that will stay with us forever and this is due to the sheer dedication of the Ettington team. It was organised and orchestrated beautifully, there are no words to express our gratitude and happiness.

Best day of our lives !

Our wedding day at Ettington Park was a joy from start to finish . The staff were helpful and attentive and seemed to share in our happiness . The set up inside and out was elegant and immaculate , the meal was delicious and the drinks perfect for a summer wedding . My bridesmaid and I stayed the night before , which was great fun and the girls and I enjoyed getting ready in our lovely Park Suite . My new husband and I stayed after the wedding in the beautiful Victorian Suite , which meant that we could relax and enjoy a tasty breakfast the next morning . The surroundings are beyond compare , the rolling lawns and tree lined driveway beautifully set off the historic main building .
Ours was a small family wedding of 24 guests , a real highlight for us was being able to seat everyone at the gorgeous oval table in the library .
I cannot thank the staff enough !

The best intimate wedding day

We had a fabulous wedding at Ettington. We chose the venue as it accommodated dogs, was welcoming and had a variety of packages. The intimate package suited us well and the venue is centrally located in England.

The venue is stunning, the food is fabulous. All our guests said what a great time they had had and want to come back themselves. The staff on the day were very friendly and obliging, shout to Damien :)

The variety of rooms was great for our friends, family and dog. We very much hope to return for our first wedding anniversary.

Ferns Wedding 10/22 (Bride)

The day was amazing! The whole day was planned out great and I literally had no worries all day, same for my other half. And we just got to spend time with the family and enjoy it. If I could do it all again with them I totally would, and I would recommend the hotel to everyone! I just felt so special and just had so much fun.
The package deal is great, we spent extra because we had a room and meal/room for the night before as well. The venue did most of the dressing for the meal as well with a decorator doing the chair sashes and me making the candles.
We also had great room service, on the day our breakfast was delivered without forgetting anything to the getting ready room. Mine and my three bridesmaids 😁
The whole experience was magical ❤️

Incredible venue

My husband and I had the most incredible day at Ettington Park Hotel and a lovely and organised run up too. The wedding package is really good given that it includes some accommodation and we loved the beautiful and historical vibe of the place and grounds. Everyone was extremely professional and friendly and we felt well looked after.
Many of our guests have expressed how much they enjoyed the wedding too.

We would definitely recommend this venue but note it is expensive to add onto the package although comparable with other venues and we felt it was worth the extras, we had the most incredible day.

Overall, we have to say thank you to the wonderful staff at Ettington Park and thank you for all the amazing things that happened at our wedding.

Amazing!!!!

We had a long list of venues we viewed in the beginning but Ettington stood out by a country mile, not only the beautiful building and grounds but the staff really made an effort to make you feel special. They really took the time to understand what we wanted for our dream wedding!! The build up to the day felt very relaxed but organised and nothing was to much trouble. Janet and her team made sure everything on the day ran seamlessly and it was a truly perfect day where we would not have changed a single thing 🥰

Mr and Mrs Williams cannot thank you enough!

We got married here on Sunday 29th August 2021. Due to circumstances, my mother was not able to attend last minute and it was the hardest decision I have ever had to make to go ahead with our wedding without my mother by my side. I cannot express in words how grateful I am to the team at Ettington Park for getting me through the day and the attentiveness they shown. We were treated like royalty and they couldn't do enough. The day went to plan seamlessly and we couldn't fault a thing. Our guests couldn't believe what a beautiful venue this place really is. Many of them taking more photos of the venue than us the bride and groom. It is just breath taking! I would recommend Ettington Park without hesitation. Special thanks to Becky, Cliff, Mike and Damon.

Wonderful!

Me and my wife got married in April 2021 (the first for the hotel in year!) and we would like to say a big thank you to the whole team for their kind help and assistance over the past couple of months.

It was a tough couple of months for me and my wife to plan our wedding amidst a difficult and uncertain backdrop, but the Ettington Park team was always kind, helpful and supportive through it all (even when they faced similar uncertainties and difficulties themselves during the period). We can't thank them enough for their help.

The hotel is truly beautiful and our friends and family have commented on how gorgeous the setting was, but we have also been telling them that the warm service of the team has been equally stunning!

We hope the team at Ettington Park and their loved ones continue to be happy, healthy and well. Thank you so much for being part of our special day!

Wedding Reception

We chose Ettington Park for our September wedding reception, a small intimate day due to COVID restrictions. Whilst this wasn’t our original venue, we were so happy with the level of service, organisation and help we received from the hotel in arranging a last minute dinner. Would highly recommend, we had a truly wonderful experience.

Simply perfect

We all had a fabulous time last weekend, from checking in on Saturday to leaving on Monday! All of our guests said how wonderful the hotel was, from the food and rooms to the staff, I'm sure you will have more guests stay at the hotel from our party in the future! (We are already looking at when we could come back)

The little touches like the chocolates in the room and the personalised teddy after our ceremony really made all the differences.

The team are an absolute asset to Ettington and helped make our wedding the fantastic day it was. Damon greeted us on arrival with the offer of a mince pie and mulled wine, always had a smile on his face and couldn't do enough to help us, by the time we left he felt more like a friend of the family than hotel staff. The same was also true for the bar staff, Alex and Dennis who were unbelievable knowledgeable of their trade and made every trip to the bar a great experience. Also our thanks to Kirbie and Emese who assisted us with various things throughout our stay with a constant offer of help or support! Absolutely everyone over the weekend was amazing, these are just a few that stood out and deserved a special mention.
A massive shout out to the chef is also needed, all of the food we had was outstanding, from breakfasts, to our fish finger sandwiches (that I'm surprised were eaten) to of course the wonderful wedding breakfast. All of it was amazing!

We chose Ettington as a venue for our wedding because it is where we visited for our first night away as a couple over a decade ago, if it didn't already hold a special place in our hearts, it certainly does now.

Sheer beauty and perfection all around

We have just held our daughters wedding at Ettington Park this past weekend. Having travelled vastly over the years (so we have stayed in lots of hotels and attended events too) I can categorically confirm we have not experienced such amazing hospitality and service as we did here. The staff were amazing from start to finish (from booking this event to leaving the hotel yesterday). The venue is outstanding and just so so beautiful. Rooms stunning and beds comfortable and food delicious. The grounds and chapel ruins with the outdoor orangery (where the ceremony took place) cannot be beaten I believe anywhere. As we had exclusive use of this hotel it meant that every guest for the event had the option to stay over and nothing requested was too small - the staff were outstanding and we loved every minute of our stay. Small (but big things to us) like making up the small chapel room for private dining the day before the wedding (my daughter mentioned when looking at the venue how beautiful it was), to the chefs helping to ‘rescue’ the cake, meant so much to us. We have created memories at Ettington Park that we truly could not have made anywhere else and, if I could, give them 100 stars as a review - I would .. Thank you Ettington Park - we more than highly recommend you ..:

Outstanding from start to finish!

What can I say other than an absolutely massive thank you to everyone at Ettington Park. Our wedding experience from the initial booking, through visits, menu tasting and the actual ceremony through to finally leaving the hotel on the day after the wedding was nothing short of brilliant.
The venue is stunning for starters.
The staff are all an absolute credit to the hotel and everyone, and I mean everyone who had any interaction with us, or our guests were absolutely superb from start to finish.
Even when there was an issue with the room for the wedding breakfast, we were consulted with minimal fuss or disruption to us as we enjoyed out big day and the matter was dealt with swiftly to our absolute satisfaction

Amazing venue

We recently got married at Ettington on 28 November and it was such a perfect day! Leading up to the wedding everyone kept telling me something always goes wrong on your wedding day but there's nothing you can do - they couldn't have been more wrong. The whole day went off without a hitch thanks to the amazing staff at Ettington! They were fantastic throughout the day, coordinating everything and putting out our decorations for us. The whole day was absolutely perfect (we even had snow and deer!). All of our guests said how beautiful the venue is and everyone absolutely loved the food - we were also really impressed over how careful the venue was with a gluten free guest. Everyone had an amazing time and we had a stress-free day thanks to the staff. Couldn't have hoped for a better wedding day!

Exceptional!

My husband and I cannot recommend Ettington Park Hotel enough. It is a beautiful building in a stunning location, but what really sold it for us, was the staff. The service we received was exceptional. They were so friendly and helpful throughout the entire planning process and nothing was too much trouble; they happily accommodated all of our requests. On the wedding day itself, the entire team went above and beyond to make the day special for us and ensure we had everything we needed. We could not be happier with our choice of venue.
