Absolutely Perfect
Venue Service

By Alice & Paul, on 24 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Apr 2018

We had the most amazing day and couldn't have asked for anything more. We had high expectations and all of them were surpassed from start to finish. Please pass on our thanks to all the staff at Great John Street, especially the chefs as the food was absolutely incredible and all our guests commented on how amazing it was. Lastly, on a personal note - you have been absolutely amazing. One of the main reasons why we chose Great Joh Street was because of you. From our first meeting we had absolute confidence in you and that you would deliver everything we had wished for on our special day and you really did. We cannot thank you enough and we'll definitely be coming back. Once again, many thanks,

So sorry for the delay, it's been a manic few weeks! We had an absolutely perfect day and everything went just as we'd hoped, we want to say a big thank you to you & the team for helping us plan a brilliant day - us and all of our guests had so much fun and there's nothing we would have changed! We also had loads of compliments from guests about the venue & the stunning rooms, we'll definitely be back! We've been to pick up the bits that we left at the venue too ??

Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Andrew & Samantha, on 24 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Feb 2018

Thanks for your email and sorry for the late reply. It’s been a crazy couple of weeks and we don’t know where the time has gone. Just about getting used to my new surname :-). The day for us was perfect, and we were so happy with the service we received on the day, couldn’t fault it.. Our only complaint is that the day went far too fast, but I doubt there’s much you can do about that haha ;-). You’ve been great throughout the planning and made our special day run smoothly. We’ve already decided where we would like to spend our first anniversary :-)

Wonderful Day & Night

By Lindsay & Adam, on 24 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 30 Dec 2017

Happy new year to you and all at GJS. What a wonderful day/night we had. The guests had an amazing time. Everything went so perfect and wouldn't have changed a single thing. Yourself and Jordan have made our wedding experience so easy and faultless. The staff on the day/night looked after us all so well, nothing was too much for them. What amazing staff, please thank them all for there hard work and outstanding courtesy and manors. As you can imagine we are still on a high, the wedding feels like it was forever ago. I'm told this must mean we had the day of our lives.

Perfect Winter Wedding
Venue Service

By Jordan Simpkins, on 19 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Dec 2017

We had our wedding here on 2nd December 2017, we could not fault the hotel or the staff in any way. We booked it in February 2016 and we were very looked after the whole time. Lauren and Jordan in particular were fantastic. Our guests commented throughout the day and evening about how great everything was, the food and the hotel staff especially. They really made our special day perfect. The rooms were stunning and I love their duplex design. If you are thinking about having your wedding here then please do, everything was amazing and we are so sad it is all over. I have also been to the hotel for drinks and afternoon tea, every time I visit I have an amazing experience.

Our Wonderful Wedding
Venue Service

By Simon & Vicky, on 09 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 25 Nov 2017

From start to finish, the team at Great John Street hotel in particular Lauren and Martina were superb. We had the most perfect wedding imaginable. We had the top floor including the heated outside veranda which was perfect even taking into account the November weather. The hotel itself is stunning and has a quirky but classy feel which really helps set it apart from the average wedding venue. My wife and i would recommend Great John Street whole heartedly, it was simply perfect !

Couldn't have wished for a better venue for our wedding reception. It was just perfect in every way. Lauren, Jordan and the whole team were so attentive and professional from start to finish. I can't recommend this unique place enough, its ideal for any special occasion and in particular as a wedding venue. Can't wait to go back and enjoy it again as just Mr and Mrs!!

Autumn Wedding
Venue Service

By Sara and Alistair, on 09 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Oct 2017

We have always loved this hotel and when my husband proposed to me here last year we knew that this is where we would marry. We had a small-ish wedding of 60 guests with the ceremony and reception all on the roof terrace and honestly couldn’t have had a more perfect day. The planning, organisation and skill that the team show is absolutely on point. Lauren helped plan our day and was incredible throughout the process, and the lovely Jenny looked after us on our wedding day. The food was so so prefect, we have had a million comments on how great all 3 courses of our sit down meal were, and the staff we so accommodating to all of our needs. The decor and whole ambience of the hotel is so beautifully thought through that it is perfect for a wedding venue. Bedrooms were and with each one being unique and generous in size our guests all felt that the had experienced a wonderful weekend away; and the wedding breakfast the next day was such a lovely touch, again food to die for! We cannot wait to visit again very soon!
