Findon village itself is tranquil, pretty and always a delight to visit in Sussex. The Manor served as a perfect venue for my wedding reception for 65 guests and I like the idea of the snooty fox bar.
In under a year

In Under a year we planed our wedding day at Findon Manor. We looked at 4 local venues on 1 day. Findon being the 2nd. Not sure we should of bothered going to the other 2 after here. Mind was made up, it was perfect for us. Wendy was fab from day one. Always fast to reply to email questions and returning calls. The staff on the day were great. The food was fantastic. Can not rave about the lamb enough. Had to go compliment the chef. The guest rooms are all clean and very comfortable. Everyone happy

We had our wedding reception at this venue and it was absolutely perfect. The venue itself is stunning and set the scene perfectly for our special day. We had the marquee package which meant the entire venue was ours for the day and night and was worth every penny! The marquee was done up beautifully, the staff were amazing, very professional but also very friendly and even though they have weddings most weekends they still all make you feel like yours is special which gave a great atmosphere to our day. The food was outstanding, all our guests were very impressed and not one plate went back to the kitchen unfinished, amazing chef! Great variety of welcome drinks and nice selection of wines with our sit down meal, as well as the choice to buy your own drinks at the bar which was not badly priced at all. A huge thank you to Wendy who was amazing from the get go! From the first day we went to look at the venue all the way through to the day after our wedding, nothing was ever to much trouble for Wendy, she was absolutely brilliant, very professional and extremely good at her job but also so friendly and easy to get along with. The day ran so smoothly, the staff worked brilliantly together and without them all our day wouldn't have been so special. A huge thank you to all of the team at Findon Manor. Would definitely recommend to future bride and grooms.

This was the first and last place me and my husband looked at for our wedding venue. We met Wendy and just fell in love with the place and the atmosphere and Wendy is lovely, so down to earth and a good laugh. We booked there and then. I stayed the night before and we had dinner (which was delicious) & chilled in the garden. The tables and chairs were being prepared by the staff who were amazing. Nothing was ever too much trouble and done with a smile. John was absolutely brilliant such a friendly man. we stayed in Harry Hotspur (bridal suite) which is beautiful and the bed is so comfortable. We joined other guests for breakfast which again was delicious and fresh. Wide selection of fresh fruit and pastries, cereal and hot food. Alex was amazing , again nothing was too much trouble, I had to change a few details on seating plan etc and he dealt with that no problem. He also helped with the groomsmen's ties. And Natalie was brilliant , she arranged all my centre pieces and other decorations and went above and beyond with it all. Wendy couldn't be there but she did say Natalie will look after us she did exactly that. I just honestly cant thank John, Natalie, Alex and Paul enough. They all made everyone feel so welcome and relaxed.
The wedding breakfast was beyond words. Everyone kept telling us how delicious it was and the evening buffet too. It truly was a magical day, everyone worked so hard.
Again, thank you all so much, we all had the most amazing weekend and we couldn't fault anything. The food and staff and venue are all the best! We are planning on another visit soon.
Here for a Black tie wedding

We chose Findon Manor for our wedding, we are quite an impulsive couple and within 5 minutes of visiting the place we had decided. We were shown around and explained what could be provided, we chose exclusive use with a marquee for our 80 guests
We chose mackerel pate, roast beef and lemon cheesecake.
The wedding breakfast was truly amazing, one guest saying it was the best wedding meal he had ever had!
We all 11 bedrooms, and as a few of us stayed on the Friday night also.
The Marquee was set up and far outweighed my expectations. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. I felt like I almost owned the place for the day!
Everything was ready when we returned from the church, guests being welcomed with mulled wine, hot chocolate for the kids, champagne, people were sitting around the log fire, it was exactly how we had imagined it.
The party went off in style with DJ and Irish band ( Shenanigan from Worthing - 5 star!) as the buffet was rolled out for the evening guests, I am still getting comments about it at work now, the prawns, Yorkshire puddings stuffed with roast beef all top quality offerings.
Breakfast the next day with all our family that stayed which is served at a long table in the function room and was a lovely way to bring the curtain down on amazing couple of days at Findon Manor.
Wendy and her team really did do us proud, from the moment we first went to visit to leaving on the Sunday they made us feel like we were the only people they were interested in and we can wholeheartedly recommend Findon Manor, especially for a wedding, It helped make our wedding day the best day of our lives!
Wedding and overnight stay
By Steven W, on 27 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 22 Oct 2016
Family had booked a wedding package, arrived at 1pm as requested, sandwiches and tea and coffee were served.
Pleasant informal surroundings and helpful staff. The room was comfortable and bathroom luxurious.
The wedding service went well and then the food was excellent, I had the roast beef, probably the best I've ever had in a restaurant. The food could not be faulted.
The hotel was quite overnight and the breakfast was pleasant and locally sourced.
Overall a pleasant stay and wonderful wedding
Highly Recommend Marquee wedding

We attended the Wedding of our nephew and his wife on 24th September at this hotel.
From the moment, we arrived we were greeted and made to feel welcome. We were shown to our room which was on the first floor at the front of the hotel. The room was bright and well-furnished to a high standard, as was the bathroom.
The wedding took over the whole hotel and was very well organised by the hotel staff. The marquee was to a very high standard and decorated well.
The food was very good and the drink flowed freely!
The waiting staff must be singled out for their efficient and well-mannered approach to the entire proceedings.
The evening buffet was amazing and not a curly sandwich in sight!!
The bed was very comfortable and we had a goodnight sleep.
At 9am we all (24) had a Sussex breakfast, which was enormous and set us up for the rest of the day.
Having experienced The Findon Manor Hotel, we would highly recommend it!

I had my wedding here in September 2016. It was such a wonderful day. The staff were so helpful, organised and efficient.
The food was delicious and lots of our guests commented on how nice and generous the evening buffet was.
The whole day start to finish went without an issue. They went out of their way to make it a magical day for us.
It was a good deal cheaper than most of the other venues we looked at too. So glad we chose this hotel.
The grounds are also gorgeous for photos.
Highly recommend this venue for weddings.
