Susan & Paul's Wedding Oct 7th 2023 Hallgarth Golf & Country Club Hotel

From booking the Hallgarth to the wedding day and afterwards, the events manager Emily and wedding co-ordinator Vicky and their team including the receptionist Mandy were very professional and helpful throughout the weekend. They all went above and beyond to ensure our special day went without a hitch (apart from us). It was the perfect venue for our wedding they had it all from the incredible food and the grounds which were perfect for our guests and photographs.

Amazing day

Great service, well mannered staff, when something went wrong they quickly rectified the situation and resolved it quickly and professionally. The day went really smoothly. One that we won't forget. The room was set up lovely how we wanted it. Table decor was perfect. I would recommend hallgarth hotel for anyone's wedding. Was a great atmosphere and a really amazing day.

Myself and my husband got married here on 17/09/2023 after our previous dates had been cancelled due to covid! Thankfully the hotel were brilliant with us throughout the covid times and were always supportive changing dates without to much trouble. When we first booked we dealt with a lady called Kelly who was lovely, but i beleive she left and afterwards we dealt with two ladies Vicky & Emily who were both a asset to the HallGarth team. Vicky led our day and we couldnt have done it without her, she was very informative and kept us updated with everything that was happening. Everyone complitmented the food we had no complaints there. The only thing a few of our guests approached me with afterwards was that the bedrooms needed some TLC which i do agree on apart from that no concerns at all.

Wedding day perfection

We had the perfect wedding at the Hallgarth and we really liked that the inside and the outside of the venue was gorgeous. We chose to get married in the Secret Garden and it was something different and special to other venues we had viewed. All of our guests thought it was fantastic too. The team couldn't do enough for us and remained in touch throughout the wedding planning process. It was also handy having spacious accommodation to get ready in and plenty of good value rooms for our guests. We would definitely recommend getting married here.

Perfect wedding!

The entire experience was perfect! The day flowed so well and we felt like we still had control over our day but had all the support we needed. The only thing I would say is the DJ caused some of our guests to leave as they didn’t know any of the songs and our guests also said their requests they requested the DJ didn’t have. Also the communication at the start seemed clear from what we were saying but not being understood at Hall Garth’s side by the first girl we were being served by and then was made to feel like “I didn’t know what I wanted” when I did and I made it obvious. The two ladies that helped us in the end were clear and understood everything we stated. Guests complained the carrot on the meal was too tough but besides that they said the day was perfect! So thank you again Hall Garth - I would definitely recommend but I wouldn’t recommend your DJ…(as an example we asked for Last Resort - Papa Roach, he didn’t have that song so he played Broken Home - Papa Roach which is not a song we want at a wedding and definitely not a song we didn’t know, we would of rather just not had the song at all, how did he not have the most popular song but had a song no one knew?). Plates were a little dirty on the morning breakfast and I think the honeymoon suite could do with a little TLC. But the lady who managed our wedding on the day of and day after, we couldn’t of asked anymore of her. She was amazing!!

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

Last night my gaughter and her husband had their event reception at The Hallgarth. The room was set out beautifully with most guests commenting on how great it looked. 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*****

Superb event

We attended a wedding on 17th June 2017; it was actually our son and his fiancée who were married and the event was attended by around 140 guests, family and friends. Hall Garth staged the event superbly from arrival, ceremony, reception and evening reception. Staff were great; special mention for Diane who made it all go smoothly without us even noticing.
Several guests including ourselves had overnight stays and that experience was also great. The hotel is an historical building, refurbished and maintained to provide clean and modern accomodation and facilities.
The hotel is set in superb, well maintained grounds with fantastic views to open countryside and golf course. We were blessed with beautiful warm sunny weather which only enhanced the occasion.
Overall a fabulous experience at Hall Garth
