Absolutely perfect day

Thank you so much for everything you did Becky, you have been amazing throughout the whole planning process. You have been so quick to reply to every email, question and have made our planning very easy.

Our day went absolutely perfectly me and Mark honestly couldn’t fault a thing. Everything ran so smoothly and went beyond what we had expected or had in our minds. You and Nick were brilliant on the day and we honestly had the best day. We have had so many comments on how lovely the day was and compliments on the food too.
Breakfast the following morning was lovely also and the room for breakfast again looked lovely with your staff using our decorations and flowers for the breakfast also.

Thank you and Nick and all your staff on the day for making our wedding day perfect. I know from working in a hotel the dedication that goes into each event and wedding and you were brilliant!

Stress free fun wedding

Right from our very first meeting, you showed nothing but professionalism; great communication. The whole planning of our day was actually stress free. A great idea of yours to offer these package deals. If I could marry the same man again, I would definitely be having the wedding with you. We went for the larger package as we found that better value for us; and absolutely everything we could need for our perfect wedding. The whole team involved were stars!! Our Toastmaster Trevor was amazing and organised our 70 Guests in a great fun professional way; they all loved him. The catering staff brilliant and our menu was outstanding. Every person said how delicious each course was; we had a few food boffins and they even agreed! Luxuria Styling who dressed our venue, tables were wonderful; again stress free decisions on our colour theme and a few extra pieces we chose for the extra special personal touch. My favourite part has got to be walking in to the ceremony room and seeing my groom and his best man in their suits, I laughed lots, affectionate laugh. They then relaxed and this laughter made way for even more throughout our ceremony into the whole day and night! Lots of our guests have commented it was one of the funniest and memorable weddings they had been to; which made Rob and I so happy! We believe that our wedding package bought from you, with everyone's involved expertise; Is absolutely one of the best decisions we have made. I would 100% recommend a deal like this for a stress free enjoyable day. Many many thanks, Jennifer and Robert Pope.

I cannot recommend them enough!

The Holiday Inn made our wedding day one of the best days of my life. Nothing was too much trouble and they ran the whole day smoothly and calmly. At no point did I once have any questions about what was happening or have any apprehension about anything. It was the calmness and efficiency of the staff that made the day so relaxed, taking all the pressure off my wife and I. I can not recommend them highly enough!

Even better than I expected

It was such a special day and all the staff couldn't have done more for us if they tried. They were so amazing and nothing was too much bother. Everything went exactly how I imagined it, well even better actually. Even the reception staff were very good as I booked a room for a relative and they said it hadn't been booked but it was no trouble and they booked him a room and it wasn't a problem.

The food throughout the day was lovely, there was plenty to go round and lots even left. The food came out quick and everyone loved their roasts.

All my family who stayed said their rooms were nice and they all slept well. They had everything they needed in them.

I will recommend to anyone I know to come and stay, hold functions at the holiday inn as everyone who came loved it.

Nothing was too much trouble

The day its self was fantastic from the start of the day the staff kept us informed on all the arrangements of decorating the room, they guided our hairdressers and make up artists to our room and nothing was too much trouble. The timing of everything was organised by the staff and they let us knew when things were due to start and guided us to the ceremony room. The room looked beautiful and all our guests looked so happy and relaxed. The service was amazing, again the staff guided us and told us when to do things. I would recommend The Holiday Inn, for future Brides and Grooms, I promise you wont be disappointed and it will leave you with absolutely perfect memories.

Dream wedding

Me and my Husband got married in May 2016.
As a bride planning your dream wedding down to the finer small details, our wedding co-ordinator Stacey was wonderful in fulfilling all of our questions and needs. Nothing was to big or small for make our day as special as we wanted it to be. All of the staff were friendly and always smiled. On the big day Alex the functions manager was amazing, he kept the day going on time from the ceremony to the last dance. The whole hotel we clean and tidy, the wedding breakfast was very lovely and we were able to adapt the pudding to our liking. Me and my husband had our photo’s taken around the hotel but also we went to the Titchfield Abby for some photo’s as well. This venue is an ideal location for a function, one we have told other’s about for the future.

Stress free wedding day

My husband and I got married at the Holiday Inn Fareham in September 2017 and the day was perfect. From start to finish the customer service we received was exceptional, emails were responded to within hours and we had constant contact with our wedding coordinator. The staff on the day were amazing with the catering manager actually coming in and working on his week off to make sure that our day ran smoothly.
The whole planning process was stress free and we were guided it through it by the wedding coordinator.
The food was amazing and all of our guests had a fantastic stay at the hotel. We could not fault a single thing about the hotel and would recommend it to any couple looking for a stress free wedding day.

Everything was honestly perfect!

Me and my Husband Scott got married at the Holiday Inn, Fareham in October 2017 and it was all so BEAUTIFUL! Everything was honestly perfect. We were kept informed with everything on the lead up to the wedding, and throughout our special day. Nothing was ever too much for the team, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for a venue. They have packages suited to different budgets which I think is fab! Thank you again to all the team that helped make our special day.
