It really was the best day ever.

By Lisa & Martin, on 03 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2018

It didn't take us long to decide that the Holiday Inn would be our venue. From then on I have nothing but praise for you. You were very accommodating at every meeting we had and went through everything we needed in detail, always explaining that you could more or less do/provide any service we required. On the actual day of the wedding we were all quite relaxed and Sue was very calm and comforting. I went to view the room at around 11am where the tables had been partly set and the ceremony room in progress of being set, which actually looked amazing already. I knew it was going to look brilliant once Sue had made the final touches. We can't thank you and your team enough. We had the most amazingly perfect day and we would certainly recommend The Holiday Inn for a stress free, amazing wedding. Thank you once again. We will certainly be returning to the restaurant again, maybe yearly for our anniversary! Tell Sue I might even wear my dress! Please pass on our thanks to all of the staff involved. It really was the best day ever.

Venue Service

By Denise & Duncan, on 31 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 30 Jun 2017

We hired the Laker Suite at the Holiday Inn Southend Airport for our wedding ceremony and reception on 30 June 2017. They were absolutely fantastic from the moment we booked last October, we had a wedding taster in April as part of the package. Hayley was so good, so professional and made it so personal, a credit to the hotel. All the staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Sue our wedding coordinator was absolutely brilliant and the whole day was perfect, mainly due in a large part to Sue. She was always on hand if needed and reassured Denise at all times, especially when Denise was having trouble with her dress and was running late, Sue just reassured Denise and told her to take her time and not to fret. Thank you so so much for helping us create wonderful memories in a wonderful setting with our Family and Friends. Great value for money, great food, which was out of this world. I just wish we could do it all again. Thank you again Hayley and Sue and all the wonderful staff for making our day just that little bit more special. Wonderful occasion. An absolute delightful experience from start to finish. So very happy we decided to have our wedding day with you.

Every single member of staff at Holiday Inn went out of their way to make our day absolutely amazing. They were professional and friendly throughout. Our food was excellent and we've had countless comments on how lovely it was. The venue was lovely and we were made to feel very special. I thoroughly recommend Holiday Inn Southend as a wedding venue .

The whole day went smoothly with no hiccups

By Charlie Edgeway, on 24 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Jun 2017

We had an incredible day & all the staff were amazing. The room looked fantastic & everything went really smoothly thanks to Sue. I can't fault anything on from the day. Special thanks to Sam who was behind the bar too (manager maybe?) He was so friendly & helpful and many people commented on how great he was! Nothing was too much trouble for him! The whole day went smoothly with no hicccups - well not that I noticed anyway - from the minute I came by on the Friday until we checked out on Sunday (Again the lady who checked us out was great too!) everything was packed up ready for us in the morning from the tables too. All the people I spoke to said what a nice friendly venue it was! So thank you so much for everything you done before & everything all the staff did on the day!

A lovely venue

By Natalie Jobey, on 16 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 26 Jul 2014

We had our wedding reception held at the holiday inn there years ago now.. It was a lovely venue and easy access for everyone who came along. We had no problems, everything was well organised and we had all the help and planning we needed from our own wedding organiser at the hotel... Everyone really Enjoyed themselves as did we. And we had lovely wedding photos to. Natalie and Stephen jobey
