Amazing Wedding
Venue Service

By Justine Biddle, on 10 Jan 2016

We held our wedding at Holbeck Ghyll on the weekend of 7th March and took the venue over from the Friday to the Sunday. It was absolutely perfect. The staff could not have been more helpful and I had to do nothing more than hand over my decorations on the Friday and let them get on with it. Gregory, the events planner, was brilliant. Any queries, no matter how small would be dealt with quickly, including a slightly random email at 11pm asking for details of the available rooms for the weekend! The food was delicious and dietary requirements were no problem and remembered without any questions. I can not recommend this hotel highly enough.

Fabulous they made our wedding celebration extra
Venue Service

By Luigi Vernazza, on 10 Jan 2016

Many of these reviews will already (and rightly) tell you how wonderful this hotel is. The rooms are of the highest quality and all individually furnished. The ambience is positively magical, the spa facilities are excellent for a small hotel and the food is worthy of a Michelin star (accompanied by an excellent wine list). The views over Windermere and the Langdale horseshoe officially rate in the top twenty views in the world. All this is well documented and absolutely true. We are sure that the vast majority of people who stay at this wonderful hotel will return - we certainly will. We also want to congratulate the hotel and all the staff on the amazing job they did in hosting our wedding on 12th December. Our wedding (26 people in total) spanned two days and all our guests were accommodated at Holbeck Ghyll. Every single one of our guests waxed lyrical (still ongoing) about how amazing the hotel is, how great the food was, how stunning the views are and most notably how wonderful the staff were. Everything we asked the hotel for was organised for us with military precision. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt like VIPs.The staff were AMAZING - the most competent, professional, engaging and friendly brigade it has ever been our pleasure to meet (and we have stayed in some very good hotels in our time). To all the Holbeck team- Alison and I wish to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being so wonderful and for helping make our wedding celebration memorable for all the right reasons. Thank you all.We will see you again very soon - we are already looking forward to it.

What can I say about Holbeck Ghyll...totally fabulous. Having stayed here in January my now husband and I decided to get married at this idyllic venue. Apart from actually deciding to tie the knot, it was the best decision we have ever made! From start to finish our experience was outstanding. The service by all departments was truly amazing, from housekeeping to reception and from the bar staff to management. Karen, the events organiser at the hotel had amazing attention to detail and made the whole planning experience a delight. On the big day all the staff attended to our every need and nothing was too much trouble. The food was top class... Beating (to us) the likes of Gordon Ramsay and other Michelin starred restaurants.... Not an easy feat when catering for 50+ all at once. All our guests had an amazing time and commented on the standard of food, the staff and the rooms. We would highly recommend Holbeck Ghyll for a couple retreat or for a larger function.... You won't be disappointed. We would like to thank Andrew and Karen for all their hard work in making our experience to magical and to all the other staff for all their hard work.

A perfect wedding in a perfect venue
Venue Service

By Nicola & Graham Turner, on 14 Nov 2011

Holbeck Ghyll is a wonderful place to get married. The preparations were effortless thanks to the help of Karen. On our arrival at the hotel all the staff went out of their way to help. A particular mention to Philip and Chris who were exceptional on the day. On the morning of the wedding, the flowers were delivered to the room so I could check they were ok, then they waited as I filled out cards and happily delivered the button holes and corsages to the guest rooms. There were offers of escorting the bride, organising canapés, music during the ceremony and the cake. This hotel stands out as it has impeccable service, combined with fantastic food, a lovely suite, beautiful scenery, and a sunny weather on the 1/11/11 all made for the most memorable and wonderful wedding. Thank you all. We have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for an intimate wedding, its perfect.

If there were ten stars we would give them

A perfect wedding, from beginning to end. The planning with Karen was so easy, everything went exactly to plan. Nothing was too much trouble. The staff are attentive charming and human! Our guests who stayed for two nights as well all had a marvellous time and could not speak too highly of everything. Food amazing.
