By Michelle Hardingham, on 23 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 25 Aug 2017

Hey! I hope this email finds you well. I was a guest and photographer at Mr and Mrs Bartrams wedding on Friday and I would just like to say your staff were amazing! Everyone had a great time and the service, food, management and of course the bar staff were fantastic! Now I attend lots of weddings, most weeks in fact, and I wanted to tell you the above as it sometimes isn't the case with wedding venues. Your hotel is beautiful and the grounds are stunning! Please let me know if you would like and photographs emailing. Thanks again! I hope to be able to photograph here again some day! Not in a dress though! Regards Michelle Hardingham

Amazing wedding venue!

This review has taken ages to do but it had to be written! This venue is amazing! It's beautiful and unique and such a perfect venue. The staff were amazing - attentive, friendly and helpful. The room itself is stunning and was exactly what we were looking for. Our co-ordinator was fabulous - she met with us as many times as we needed and literally did everything she could to make our day run smoothly and to make it perfect! I cannot recommend this venue enough - you will have an amazing day and a perfect wedding if you book Great Hallingbury Manor!!

We got married here on Friday 10th October. We were introduced to Rhiannon who couldn't have been more attentive. She was amazing, the whole day went without a hitch, the meal was exceptional, the staff faultless and polite and the DJ smashed it! We have the best day of our lives and I want to do it again next year! My other half, not so keen! Thanks Rhiannon and the staff at GHM for making our day perfect!

All the staff helped to make our wedding the most fantastic day. The wedding organiser was extremely helpful, the meal was delicious and they accommodated my unusual requests and catered for my guests many dietary requirements brilliantly. The room was clean and tidy, and we could only hear the planes when we had the windows open. Thank you for helping to make it the best day of my life.

Cannot recommend this location and its staff enough. Right from the planning stages where Georgina and Jill were both absolutely fantastic with helping to arrange everything just how we hoped for! Nothing was an effort to organise our wedding...we asked for a few changes to various bits right upto the day and they were always happy to accommodate and go the extra mile for us! On the day, all the staff helped to make our wedding the most fantastic and special day. The food was perfect, really delicious and the chef was only to happy to cater for guests varied dietary requirements and our preferences. We had a lot of family staying at the hotel too and thank you so much to everyone for helping to make them all feel so welcome and once again help with organising meals the night before and lunch the following day, was all just perfect! Great Hallingbury manor was our first and in fact the only place we chose for our wedding as we loved the venue right from the start and we wouldn't have changed that for anything. Was a perfect choice and thank you all for giving us such a perfect and the best day or our lives! Also was really nice that Jonathan the Manager took his time to come and meet us and was so interested at how everything had been for us so we gave him our feedback which with all honesty was nothing but positive feedback! We have had nothing but positive comments from our guests, they absolutely loved the wedding day and they all comment on how much of a fantastic venue choice we made!!! Thank you again and we hope to see you all again soon when we will visit for a nights stay!!

Perfect for weddings
Venue Service

By Karen and Gary, on 17 Nov 2014

We got married at this hotel in August and had a most amazing time. The grounds are beautiful and so is the inside. The views during the ceremony made it all the more special. The staff were very attentive and efficient. The rooms are very spacious with lovely bathrooms, the bridal suite is out of this world. Breakfast was lovely, wide choice and hot. A most fabulous venue for a wedding, a party or a romantic getaway.

Perfect venue for our wedding day

By Tom, on 17 Nov 2014

We cannot recommend GHM enough! The venue was beautiful and being close to the M11 was easy for guests to get to. The staff couldn't do enough for us and our guests and were friendly and professional. The food was amazing and everyone commented on it, the DJ did a great job and all the organising before and on the day was completely stress free due to the wonderful wedding planners. We couldn't fault a single thing and are so grateful to them all for making our wedding absolutely perfect

Perfect wedding

We had our wedding here on 30th November and found the venue to be excellent. It is set in lovely grounds and looks lovely both inside and out. All the staff were excellent in helping us in the run up to the wedding and on the big day, and this meant we had a fantastic day with great food and entertainment from the resident DJ. All our guests have said they had a brilliant day and we would recommend the venue to anyone. Thank you Georgina and all for a wonderful day!

Great venue
Venue Service

By Gery, on 17 Nov 2014

Have just returned from a fab wedding at Hallingbury Manor plus 2 night stay with all our family . Cant praise the staff enough ( all of them ) however Thomas was sooo helpful and patient. They are friendly efficient and welcoming. Clean rooms, comfy bed and pillows, nice toiletries, excellent choice of teas, coffee, chocolate and biscuits in the room. Such a pretty setting and good food. Relaxed enough for everyone to enjoy themselves but still professional enough that the whole event went smoothly. Nothing was too much trouble. Wedding Menu 5 * Yes the aeroplanes are noisy, however to feel so at home..... it was worth putting up with. The grounds are lovely at all times of day and we were blessed with sun, so gorgeous.

Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Karen and Terry, on 17 Nov 2014

Having booked the picturesque venue for our wedding we had the most perfect day any couple could dream off. From our ceremony, reception and evening, everything was absolutely divine. The real thanks go to the team at Great Hallingbury, from Jonathon - General Manager, Lloyd - Operations Manager, Rebecca - Wedding Coordinator, The whole restaurant team and especially William the chef for a truly remarkable dinner which many guests commented on the pure high quality of the meal and the attentiveness of the waiting team. We had some truly remarkable pictures around the scenic gardens and lake. All in all guys and heartfelt massive thank you and once again we are in your debt for making our day truly wonderful and special Mr & Mrs Terry & Karen Good

Great wedding venue
Venue Service

By Patricia, on 17 Nov 2014

We have just returned from a wedding held at this hotel. It is a beautiful old manor house in a lovely setting. We had a short wait to check in to our rooms as there had been another wedding the previous day. However, our room was pleasant with a comfy bed and a good power shower. The staff at the hotel were very courteous and couldn't do enough for you. The room that the civil ceremony was held in was beautifully decorated and everything went very smoothly. We later had a three course meal and we were very impressed with the standard of the food which was served hot and was delicious. The breakfast this morning was also of a very high standard, using quality produce. This is a lovely place to hold a wedding or a large celebratory event. It is very close to Stanstead airport and planes fly very low above the hotel but this is not really a problem as the noise only lasts for a couple of seconds.
