Wonderful Day & Night
Venue Service

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!

September Wedding
Venue Service

By Lisa & Scott, on 31 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 30 Sep 2017

We wanted a wedding venue that was gorgeous and boutique but relaxed and unpretentious. Great John Street was all of those things. Lauren, Jennie and the team were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble. The organisation, service and attention to detail was second to none. We chose to have our reception in the Oyster bar and surrounding rooms and the space worked perfectly for our number of guests, all very relaxed and informal, guests could choose to sit upstairs or down but the rooms all flowed together and made a great party space. We had the most amazing day and night, couldn’t have asked for better!! Our guests have made so many lovely comments on the venue, food, and service. Rooms were fabulous (especially ours!). We often stay in big, characterless and impersonal hotels, the beauty of Great John Street is the atmosphere and style - five star service with the perfect balance of comfort and class. We have amazing memories from a beautiful day in a perfect venue!! Thank you GJS!!! xx

We recently had the pleasure of having our wedding day at GJS on the rooftop terrace. From the initial viewing back in 2015 right up until our big day on the 16th Sept we were looked after by Bronwen and the rest of the team. The service we recieved and the care and attention given to us and to our requirements for our wedding was exemplary. Our event coordinator on the day was a wonderful chap called Jordan. He made my partner and I feel incredibly relaxed and ensured that everything ran as smoothly as we could have hoped for. The quality of the food we had throughout the day from the canapés to our wedding breakfast to the evening munchies and breakfast the morning after was of an incredibly high standard and all/any dietary requirements were catered for to an equally high level. With the rooftop package we also had the bedrooms located on the floor below for many of our guests to stay over. Everyone was thrilled with their accomodation and very much enjoyed their stay. We cannot thank the staff enough for everything they did for us and the hotel is a beautiful place to have a wedding or just for a night away.
