This place will forever be in our hearts.

We had an amazing time and everyone at Hanbury Manor made it possible (special shout out to Andy for coming along on the golf buggy ride!). Poles hall looked fantastic and everyone loved the Manor. We are eagerly looking forward to seeing our video and photos.

We look forward to returning to Hanbury on another occasion, this place will forever be in our hearts.

Impressive Venue

From our initial visit to Hanbury Manor, throughout the planning process and especially on the day of the wedding we were totally impressed with the venue, its setting and particularly the professionalism of the people we had the pleasure of working with. Despite it being classified as a package, we never felt constrained by certain conditions and the whole planning and actual event felt tailor made to our requirements. All our guests thought the venue beautiful, commented on how good the food was and what a perfect day they had. Despite an unfortunate accounting error a few days prior to the event which was quickly resolved, everything from start to finish went very smoothly. The success of the day was primarily down to the professionalism we experienced from Beatrice and Julia; they really seemed to care that the event turned in to our perfect day.

We would have no qualms recommending Hanbury Manor to anyone who was thinking of holding any event at the hotel.

Wedding in Poles Hall

We had our wedding at the hotel in August this year.The hotel's staff were amazing throughout making sure things ran smoothly. We got married in Poles Hall and had the Wedding Breakfast and evening reception in the Thundridge Suite. Both rooms were lovely.The Wedding Breakfast and buffet were perfect. The weather was against us on the day but the hotel's interior provided lovely opportunities to get some excellent photos. I want to thank all of the staff for their hard work on the day in catering for our 180 guests which I imagine was no easy task! In particular to the wedding coordinators on the day and Hermione for all her support over the past year in the wedding's organisation.

We would like to say a really big thank you to you, Katie and the rest of the staff at Hanbury Manor who helped make our wedding day so very special and memorable. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. All the staff looked after us very well and were very attentive. The food was wonderful and the set up in the Drawing Room was absolutely lovely.

We could not have asked for anything more perfect

The ambiance of the room was exactly what we wanted from the moment I walked in, to both room turnarounds.

Both Gabor and Lavinia worked very hard and were absolutely wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they made us feel very special.

Wonderful occasion

... huge thank you to Hermione and Lavinia who organised and hosted our daughter’s wedding on Saturday – we had a wonderful occasion which was made even more special by the attention to detail that you and your team provided. The delicious food was excellent, the service very attentive and slick and the benefit of being able to use Poles Hall for our reception drinks and then Thundridge for the dinner and dancing afterwards, made it even better as there was space for everyone to move around without feeling as if they were being shepherded from one place to another. As a lot of our guests stayed overnight it was lovely to be able to have a relaxing breakfast together, again without being rushed, and all your staff without question were professional, helpful and all with a smile!
