Zena and Luke 2nd September 2017
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

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.

This hotel was outstanding. They really put on an amazing event for my best friends.
The food was great and received a fast delivery and really made it look amazing. The buffet in the evening was good too. They had ample staff and did not have to wait long for a drink and the prices were normal pub prices. They had a very pretty garden for taking photos.
Would definitely recommend this hotel for weddings and other functions. Thank Findon Manor for an amazing wedding!xx

One of the most stunning hotels with staff that cant do enough for you. The food was some of the best I have ever had. This is a place that I will definitely be recommending to anyone and everyone looking for a venue or just a short stay. We look forward to coming back

Our daughter got married here in August and the management and staff couldn't do enough to make sure everything went to plan. We had sole exclusive use for that day and night Wendy and her staff made sure we wanted for nothing. The rooms were lovely and comfortable and very clean. Being an old manor made it even more special, with quirky rooms, dado rails not level just perfect for this building. Everybody that stayed had a big gathering for a wedding breakfast the next morning allseated together, it was a very special end to a special weekend. This place is ideal fro a special event :)
Lovely wedding Venue

Daughters wedding reception at Findon Manor Hotel was faultless. The staff worked tirelessly all day and through the evening to ensure all the guests were looked after. The wedding preparations were meticulously planned and executed (thanks Wendy and John)
Food was extremely good quality, and drinks from the bar not outrageously priced as in the case of most hotel establishments.
The gardens were a delight and were a favourite among guests in the evening.
