A great experience.
5 star review!
There isn't one thing I would change or improve on as I feel you were all extremely professional and amazing at your jobs. We had some many of our guest compliment on the staff and the rooms, they were lovely and clean and a good night's sleep was had by all.
Thank you all so much. We will be recommending your hotel whenever we can.
Couldnt have been happier...
Amazing and Memorable Day
Wouldnt hesitate to reccomend
Julie and I would like to say a massive thank you to all of the staff at the hotel. It’s fair to say the wedding went perfectly throughout the whole day. The staff worked tirelessly to make sure our day was perfect. We truly believe the day could not have been any better, even if the registrar did try to marry my twin brother with Julie ?. One of the main reasons, the day was such a success was in due to the effort of each member of staff, and for this we will always be grateful.
We would like to say a special thanks to Imogen for making sure the evening activities were seamless and knowing our guests, I’m sure they made her work very hard manning the bar throughout the evening.
Everyone commented on how good the food was, including one guests who mother was so surprised, as her son ate all the chicken on their table and he doesn’t even like chicken.
The dance floor was packed throughout the whole evening, from beginning to end. The DJ recommended by the hotel went down a storm, and we would even use for other family events.
Both Julie and I wouldn’t have any doubt or hesitation in recommending the hotel for anyone planning their wedding in the future.
Day we will treasure forever...
Both My Husband and I would like to take the time to thank everyone who was involved in making our day so special. It was a beautiful day that we will treasure forever.
All our guests also commented on how good everything was on the day and said what a great time they all had.
We have great memories of the day and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Hickstead to our friends and family if anyone plans to get married in the future.
Extra special day..
Already planning to come back..
Wedding day bliss...
Couldnt have chosen a better venue
Thank you, for your professionalism, friendliness, flexibility with the changes we had to make before the big day, overall, you helped to make this a very special day for us, and our guests.
Extra special day
Perfect wedding day
Can we not get married every year...
Come the big day, everybody there was absolutely incredible and everything ran smoothly! The staff worked so hard to get everything ready for us and paid such great attention to detail. The food was amazing and so tasty – everyone complimented the food! The vegans/vegetarians who we had at the wedding had a big selection of dishes to choose from.
We couldn’t have asked for a more special, perfect day. It was everything I had hoped for and more! I know that would not have possible without you guys, thank you so much Kellie & everyone else at The Hickstead! I cannot express my gratitude enough. It was a joy to share our special day with you. If we are ever in need of a party venue again we will be coming straight to you!
Have your wedding here!
