Absolutely faultless, 5*****

Choosing a venue was a very difficult decision, but when Kelly showed us around Hallgarth we were instantly sold. Not only was the venue a 5* one but the staff here were absolutely amazing. I was put at ease and every conversation we had right up to the minute i walked down the isle was easy and stress free. I couldn't have asked for a better venue. We had zero complaints from any of our guests, in fact we only had great reviews from guests. If you are looking for a venue that will fill your heart with love, professional teams who want to make every decision about you with amazing food then you really wont be disappointed here.

Relax now you have found your venue, have an amazing day.

love the Morrisons

Very attentive

Myself and my husband got married here on Friday 3rd August. We had such a fantastic day and I could not thank Diane enough for everything from the planning the night before to the end of the wedding day. She went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect and how I wanted it. Even when it come to getting married in the secret garden and it began spitting with rain, she could see how much I wanted it and even asked the guests if they would hold umbrellas provided by the hotel it was fab!! I couldn't recommend her enough. Also the staff during the day helping to make it perfect were very attentive and followed our requests. I loved this day and if I could do it all again I would not pick another venue! Thank you to everyone .. Mr & Mrs Harrod

Beautiful & amazing place

Just over two weeks ago we had our wedding here..what a beautiful and amazing place it is! The staff couldn't be more helpful and polite especially Diane! She was there throughout the whole day (bless her..what a long day!) And was more than happy to help with any requests we may have at all. She (and the whole staff) kept me at ease, and made me feel confident that our day would be perfect...even though we were meant to married outside and it rained (unreliable English weather as usual haha) but honestly we wouldn't change a thing! Thank you all so much much! From Bailey and Loren Hobson xx

wonderful hen party

We have just returned from a weekend here for my cousins hen party. What a weekend we had and I can鈥檛 thank all the staff enough for their hospitality. Thank you to Tracey for helping me to organise everything along with Lyndsey who answered all my queries to make sure we had everything we needed before we arrived. Once we arrived, check in with Bev was smooth with no problems. The spa staff were very lovely and the waiting staff (Josh, Fraser, Hannah & Kieron) were superb. Nothing was too much trouble and were happy to assist with everything we asked for. Our room was beautiful and we had a wonderful weekend. Food was extremely delicious and good value for money. Could you please pass on our thanks to your wonderful team.

The food was lovely and the staff efficient and friendly. Everything my daughter asked for was done just how she requested, there was nothing to much trouble.

Once again thank you to all staff involved in making this a wonderful night , one to remember for a very long time*****

A perfect day

Emma, Abby and Diane ( not to forget all your other hard working staff )

Just a very short note from Andrew my husband and myself, to say a huge thank you to you all for making our day such a memorable one.

From the moment we walked into the hotel in May/June when we first talked about dates, till we left (with tears of sadness at having to leave I must say!) on Friday 29th September 2017, we have been over whelmed at the assistance and dedication of the staff there.

Everything was so professional and timed to perfection.

From Sarah in The Stables who chatted with us the night before, Chefs and serving staff who cooked and served a fabulous meal, Shirley in the dining area who recognised us as being regulars to the hotel, Emma and Abby who talked over our preferred requirements and of course Diane who did a truly professional job on the day. I cant thank you all enough.

We wanted a relaxed and non formal event and we surely got everything we hoped for.

Hugs from the new Mr & Mrs Nicholl.

A dream come true

Our wedding day was truly fantastic! Apart from the weather, it could hardly have gone any better. It was exactly what we wanted, planned and hoped for. A dream come true! We and our guests all had a great time, and loved the venue. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and worked very hard. Special mention must be made of Abby who was a tower of strength throughout, put us at ease and gave us confidence at every stage. we shall be back to enjoy the Hotel again in the future, probably quite often! Thank you all for everything you have done through the long and tortuous process. You've been amazing.
