Wedding Day Perfection
Venue Service

By Mark & Vicky Evans, on 19 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 11 Nov 2017

We got married at Horsley Lodge on 11th Nov 2017. We cannot fault anything it was quite literally “The perfect Day” We we’re helped with the planning by Wedding coordinator Laura who guided us through the whole process! She went over everything with us and made sure everything was just how we wanted it! The day was overseen by Matt who did a tremendous job of making sure everything thing ran smoothly! The wedding breakfast was excellent and a nice touch was the chef came out of the kitchen to ask us if everything was ok! The evening buffet was also spot on! The whole day from the ceremony to the last dance was truly memorable and we would have no hesitation in recommending Horsley Lodge to anybody considering the venue for their wedding! Well done Horsley and thanks for everything!

Our Special Day
Venue Service

By Rachel and Paul Rothon, on 19 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Sep 2017

We booked our wedding ceremony & reception at Horsley Lodge with Laura & her team, everything was perfect, the weather, the setting & the staff, from start to finish we couldn't fault it. Laura made us feel at ease through the booking to the actual day itself, nothing was too much trouble, for her & all the staff. The venue itself was as other reviews have said, it is very picturesque & down by the fountain is perfect for wedding photos, even had a ride down to it in the golf buggy, which was great fun & recommended! The room & Atrium were great for our wedding party & the in-house DJ went down a storm! The food & service at the Wedding Breakfast & Evening Reception was second to none & everyone enjoyed it, & said how nice it was. My Wife & i had the Salt Suite & The Rutland Suite which suited us as she stayed over the night before, so she & the bridal party got ready in the morning in The Rutland, & the conservatory was used for that & also for photos for the wedding both were lovely spacious rooms. Other members of the wedding party booked rooms in the main part of the hotel & were really pleased with the facilities & the breakfast. All in all a perfect day & couldn't have asked for anything better & thanks to Laura for adding the personnel touch

By Kirsty and Jamie, on 19 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 24 Jun 2017

Well what can I say, it was the most perfect day from start to finish! We had been planning our wedding for 18th months and Laura has been with us all the way, I've thrown so many emails at her and she's responded to everyone! The staff at Horsley Lodge are fantastic, the food was amazing, the grounds are perfect for your wedding photos and the bedrooms are beautiful! I can't recommend Horsley Lodge enough, if we could have our wedding all over again we would but it couldn't have been any more perfect than what it already was. Thank you to all the staff at Horsley Lodge especially Laura, Linda and Dave you were all fabulous! X

Our Beautiful Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Ricardo Saltano, on 04 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 09 Jul 2016

My wife and I held our marriage ceremony here at Horsley Lodge, along with our wedding reception. We could not fault the service of both Laura, on the run up to the wedding and organisation for the day, and also Dave who was fantastic on the day making sure everything was going to plan and that the guests were all ok. That evening Katie and I stayed in the Saltsuite and again could not fault it at all. Very accommodating and very well presented. The morning after we went into the restaurant to enjoy a first breakfast as husband and wife. This topped off a fantastic weekend as the food was phenomenal. Would highly recommend Horsley Lodge as a fantastic wedding venue and the service you receive is first class. Finally would just like to thank Laura, Dave and all the other staff members that made our wedding so magical. Thank you. Zack and Katie

Wonderful Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Ricardo Saltano, on 15 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 12 Feb 2016

Horsley Lodge is such a beautiful place, very picturesque. The food and the hotel rooms are to die for. Luxurious! Everything went smoothly throughout the day. They played the music too long before I walked down so it had already finished. Everything else was great and a fabulous wedding day was had by all.

The Perfect Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By Catherine S, on 15 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 26 Jun 2015

Simply a fantastic day mostly thanks to Laura and the team as everything went without a hitch. Food, service, location and ambiance all 2nd to none. Visited a few venues and so glad we chose this one. A big thank you to everyone at Horsley for hosting the best day of my life in such a great way.

Perfect day
Venue Service

By Jodie spencer, on 12 May 2015

We choose Horsley Lodge after a work Christmas meal there, I'm from Nottingham so I wouldn't of found this beautiful place otherwise. The rooms have been refurbished and look beautiful as does the surroundings for the photos. Everyone said how great the food was and how pretty the place was. Everything flowed so well plus there is a smart bar in the room which means everyone can stay in one room without the men in congregating in another room.
