    Style over substance

    In summary this venue needs improvement. If you can look past feeling like you are on the wedding conveyer belt, feeling more stressed than you should, toilets being out of order you could be alright.

    I will start with the good. The venue is set in a picturesque location and the manor house vibes are just what we wanted. After we escalated issues we had, we did start to get clearer communication but we were still left with issues that were unresolved due to poor communication.

    The improvements:
    • Clearer communication before the wedding day to make you feel like there is a plan in place. Although we did have a call 2 weeks before our wedding key things like logistics and catering were not clarified and left us feeling stressed when our catering company wasn’t sure if they would be able to get a licences to serve alcohol or have enough ovens to prep the food.
    • Worth letting guests know to bring their own shampoos as its luck if your rooms has this stocked
    • From a distance/photo the venue looks good however when you are up close you see that it really needs an update. Soap dispensers in the toilets falling off, walls looking grubby etc
    • The sound limiter. We were assured that this would not impact our night and for the most it didn’t, however, don’t waste your money on having a live band, it was really difficult for them to play and actually got cut off a few times. The fact that the sound limiter is next to the speaker just doesn’t make sense as the doors are closed so should be outside to ensure the sound isn’t travelling out or just soundproof the room. You will be told many times that the sound limiter won’t impact your night and it depends on the band/DJ but the fact is it does when everyone wants the party music on.
    • We informed the venue at 10am on the morning of our event that 5 of the women’s toilets were out of order and that this would be looked into as we had over 200 guests coming. Turns out it wasn’t resolved so we have 200 guests trying to use 2 toilets which soon became unusable as toilet paper etc was not replaced. This was terrible considering you pay for a venue hire based on facilities and this was not given. Our compensation was a £35 case of wine.
    • We were told we would have exclusive hire of the venue however when our caterers arrived, they found that they had to share the kitchen with the venue who were using it to prep food, which felt crowded.
    • We were told on the day that the venue does not get rid of cardboard boxes or empty glasses, another surprise to add stress. Luckily our caterer took our packing and then also saw in the contract that the venue will remove empty bottles.

    Unless you are ok with lack of communication and you don’t mind a few unwanted surprises then we would recommend looking at another venue.

    No hesitation in recommending Froyle Park to

    Following my Daughter Samantha and Ross’s wedding on Monday 12th at Froyle Park.

    I just wanted to say a big ‘thank you’ to you and all your staff at Froyle Park. You were all were so helpful throughout the whole time, since the day we booked this wedding, and the whole day itself was fabulous. Whenever I asked for anything it seemed that nothing was too much trouble for any of you. You are all a credit to the lovely venue there at Froyle, and the correct way these events should be organised and run. I would have no hesitation in recommending Froyle Park to anyone ( I have even already helped you to get a booking for one of my sisters friend ‘s who were looking for a venue, and have booked Froyle Park for this December). We also had so many compliments on the day, from family and friends about the building/ gardens /bedrooms /venue and Staff.

    Lastly:- I had a lot of family saying how lovely the bedrooms were and that the mattress’s on the beds were the best they have ever slept in!! Would you be so kind as to e-mail me back the details of what type of mattress were in the rooms, and the make (as I think we all want one now)

    Once again, thank you to all at Froyle.
    Kind regards
    Kevin
