    This was an absolute Disaster

    I arranged with Douglas the events manager to have a look round on a Saturday, all was set and he had sent over a price list and quote. My partner and I arrived 10 minutes early and the receptionist called his office and he wasn't there, they then called his mobile to then be told he will be with us shortly. So we took a seat and waited, whilst waiting there was a argument with 2 residents and the hotel manager it think. We were still waiting 20 minutes later for Douglas to turn up.. The hotel manager then came over and said they couldn't get hold of Douglas so he would show us around! When we asked him questions he couldn't answer them... I still haven't heard from Douglas to even apologise for not turning up! So definitely a Big no from us...

    Our wedding

    We got married on the 20th August 2021. From the day we visited the venue to the morning after our wedding everything was perfect. The communication from Douglas (Event manager) was unbelievable. He answered any questions we had and always put our mind at ease. He managed to personalise everything the way we wanted it to be!

    On the day everything ran so smoothly. Douglas and all of the staff handled everything so well, if there was a problem they came up with a solution straight away it didn’t once affect our special day. I would recommend anyone to go and visit the hotel! They have had an amazing refurbishment and we were lucky enough to have our ceremony outside in the pavilion and the grounds were just beautiful!

    I can’t thank everyone at the hotel enough for everything they done for me and my husband. It was truly unbelievable

    A great hotel for our intimate wedding

    We stayed here for two nights for our wedding in May 2021 just as the hotel was re-opening. The staff were very good, and the rooms were very clean. The room I was provided to get ready for my wedding was excellent with lots of light and plenty of space for numerous people.
    The grounds for pictures and for our ceremony were beautiful. The food was delicious and considering the hotel had only been open a few days after closing due to the pandemic I think they did very well. We were invited for an evening to taste the food on the Monday before our wedding. This was the first day they had opened due to the pandemic and the food that night was just as fantastic for our wedding.
    The room for our ceremony and wedding breakfast was perfect and great for the number of guests we had. Douglas and his staff went out of there way to make sure we had a great time. Nothing was too much trouble and our wedding was exactly how we wanted it.

    We are looking forward to returning for our one year anniversary.

    We said 'I Do' so should you.

    Our wedding day was not as we had planned due to Covid but Douglas and his team at Guildford Manor did all they could to make our day special.
    The ceremony room was set up perfectly and the room was swiftly changed around so that we could have a amazing afternoon tea. It was a happy, stress free day thanks to the hard work of the team at Guildford Manor.
    The grounds are perfect for some amazing photos to be taken.
    We are now looking forward to having the full reception later in the year.
    Once again Thank you to Douglas and the team at Guildford Manor for making our day so memorable.

    Wedding at Guildford Manor Hotel September 2020

    We had our wedding during Covid-19, end of September 2020, at Guildford Manor Hotel. Due to the restrictions we decided to postpone our large wedding for 2 years and instead have a small ceremony on our original date. The hotel was very accommodating about this and we are looking forward to working with them again to organise our celebrations in 2022.
    The hotel had undergone recent renovations when we had viewed and booked our wedding date back in November 2019. The ceremony room was nicely set up and decorated. Due to reduced numbers we had a family meal in the restaurant rather than use the function room. The staff at Guildford Manor Hotel made changes very quickly to help with the flow of the day, as most of our guests were staying at the hotel that evening, they changed the ceremony room into a function room for a meal and drinks in the evening to keep us private from other hotel guests. We had multiple meals at the hotel for breakfast, our wedding meal and dinner over the course of our 3 night stay and the food was always delicious.
    The hotel rooms were clean, tidy and comfortable with some lovely views. It was a lovely touch to have chocolates and small bottle of prosecco in the wedding suite. Only negative was the jacuzzi bath (jets for jacuzzi) didn’t work but this was going to be investigated after our stay. The hotel was quiet and highlighted to people if they were not following Covid guidelines such as wearing a mask around the hotel. The pool and spa area (only the sauna and steam room closed due to social distancing) was clean and had restrictions on numbers in the area but did not feel anyone was missing out on using the area during their stay.
    We would recommend Guildford Manor Hotel for anyone wanting to stay for vacation or wedding.

    Absolutely perfect

    Well. Where do I begin. From start to finish the entire wedding planning process was made so much easier by Doug. Beautiful venue. Wonderful staff. We couldn't of hoped for a better day. Had to postpone a year due to covid19. Doug made the decision so easy for us to cope with at every avenue. We were their first wedding out of lockdown (24/7/21) and it ran so smoothly considering we had 115 day guests with additional 50+ in the evening. The food was A*. The staff were fabulous. The venue itself looked absolutely beautiful. We cannot thank Doug and his lovely family enough for providing such a beautiful perfect day for us.

    Wedding venue

    We hosted our wedding reception at the Guildford manor. The staff, especially Douglas has been extremely helpful during the busy summer wedding period. The venue is absolutely stunning. The bridal suite was spacious with a beautiful view of the field. However the banquet room don’t have updated sounds systems so we had to download music into CD’s. Overall I would recommend this venue!

    Excellent Wedding Venue

    We had our wedding at Guildford Manor and I would highly recommend this venue for an amazing wedding day!! First impressions of the venue are great, you drive down the long driveway and greeted by lovely landscaped gardens and the impressive Manor. The wedding ceremony and receptions rooms are modern and elegant in design and are a good size for a medium sized wedding. There's also an option of doing the ceremony outside at their beautiful pavillion. The venue have lots of nice decorations included in the package, so that helped with our budget. There is lots of parking and rooms onsite which was a big tick for us. Communication with the events manager throughout the process was good. The supplier list was helpful and we used the recommended photographer, florist and DJ who were all excellent!!! The onsite catering was of high quality, and everything ran very smoothly on the day by the experienced staff. We really enjoyed our wedding at Guildford Manor, thank you to the team for running such a smooth and fantastic day for us!

    Lovely wedding venue with an exclusive feel

    We were due to have our wedding here in September 2020 but like many others, covid had other ideas. Douglas was very helpful, letting us move our dates twice. We ended up having a small ceremony in June for the legal part and then the original wedding plan in September 2021. The venue has a really nice flow for weddings, with the ceremony room flowing out into a lobby which leads out to the grounds, and also leads onto the recception room, so even though we didnt pay to have exclusivity it felt like we did as the wedding side of the hotel is separated from the rest of where the guests frequent. The reception room and lobby has a bar solely for the wedding guests, which we really liked as it kept everything contained and meant that if people didnt want to dance and just wanted to chat by the bar they were able to still stay part of the wedding space and was really nice to have our older relatives still be very much part of the reception and have everyone in one room. The grounds are really nice as well, and it is round the corner from Newlands Corner, a lovely romantic spot with the best views for miles. The bridal suite was really nice as well with a lovely jacuzzi bath tub which was really lovely! Douglas and his team are good, although when Douglas was off sick one day things were a little hectic! The wedding food was nice, although it was different to our taster menu as they had changed chefs, but that is what happens when you have to postpone for a year! Overall I would recommend looking at this as a wedding venue. A lot of the decorations, such as sashes, teh ceiling drapes and fairy lights, the lanterns and the cherry blossom trees were all included as part of the package. Also their house DJ Alvin from Be Majestic Entertainment who was absolutely brilliant and even got our 80year old relatives on the dancefloor! The only thing i would say is there is no lift, so make sure to advise guests who can't manage stairs request a groundfloor room. Also i would advise checking that you can have access the day before to set up adn ideally access the day after for breakdown as that makes things so much easier! We didnt get to try the spa unfortunatley, we were hoping to use it after we had checked out but we didnt realise that isn't allowed as they have other day guests using to so you can only use it when you are still staying. But i had friends who used it and they said it was lovely, the outside jacuzzi looked good too.

    Fantastic wedding at The Manor House

    My husband and I got married on 13th April 2013 at this venue. We had an incredible day (despite the weather) and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The wedding planners met with us on two occassions to ensure everything ran smoothly prior to the day. The portion sizes of the dinner were HUGE and the venue accommodated our 90 guests well for the sit down dinner. We had an incident with our chair cover company who failed to deliver the correct amount of chair covers I had ordered and then refused to come back when called. The Manor House realised this and swiflty organised for another company to come along to the venue and make up enough chair covers for our guests and ensured I knew exactly what was happening. It was all sorted in time thanks to their organised staff! We had a couple of other hiccups but nothing major. Overall, we were very pleased with the venue. The only real negative was not being able to use the beautiful grounds due to the terrible rain (def beyond the venue control!). We had a fab day nonetheless.

    Our perfect wedding at a lovely venue

    The support from the wedding coordinators and staff was absolutely superb - from the very first meeting and then through to the extreme hard work and attention to detail on the day.
    The ceremony room is simple yet elegant, here is a large bar/sofa area that is great for post-ceremony mingling or for quieter chats when the band is playing in the banqueting room, and the gardens are large and very pretty. There are lots of sweet little nooks for photos and it's all very green and charming. The banqueting hall was large and the staff set up our tables perfectly. The meal was a great success and on the day everyone was raving about the food (and portion sizes). The music stopped at midnight - but the hotel was still really accommodating for the few nightowls who wanted to stay up chatting (and having the odd glass of wine..) well into the small hours!
    All in all....It was FANTASTIC. We had a wonderful day - and amazing photos to prove it.

    Fantastic Wedding Venue

    We had our wedding at the Manor House Hotel on the Jubilee bank holiday- and it was perfect.
    Even though there were three other weddings over the weekend, they made ours feel like it was the only one they had.
    The venue won us over by the great layout, space and of course where its located - beautiful countryside.
    The staff were fantastic and nothing was too much for them. They made our day go without a hitch-(especially Lorna)

    Great value - Great location - Great staff

    Highly Recommended

    We recently enjoyed our wedding day at the Manor House Hotel. We were made to feel special from the moment we arrived until we left the next morning. The hotel is in a gorgeous countryside setting and inside has a warm, homely and welcoming feel. In the planning stages wedding coordinators were very forthcoming with great ideas and were prompt in their response to any of our queries. We had the opportunity to try the wedding breakfast dishes early on so we could make the best choices for our guests. The wedding breakfast on the day surpassed our expectation, generous portions, well cooked and delicious. The waiting staff were all very efficient, friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We had the services of Wendy who helped host the occasion, acting as master of ceremonies when required. With her coordination the whole event was seamless. Assistant manager Lorna's enthusiasm and warmth was present from our very first meeting at the hotel, whatever the request she went out if her way to help. We have found all of the staff at the hotel to be helpful and friendly. It was a fantastic day and a memory that we will treasure forever. Our guests were very complimentary of our choice of venue and we would all highly recommend the Manor House Hotel to anyone in need of a great venue in which to host their wedding day.
