Magical Wedding Day
The Hydro is an absolutely amazing venue! Views over the sea and the outdoor lawns and gardens make you feel like you’re having a destination wedding. We loved it and our guests loved it. Guests said it was the best wedding food they had ever had and the service was impeccable. Thanks to Jonathan, Angie, Julie, Francois, Julian & the whole team who from day 1 of planning made the process seamless and stress free. The other thing we liked about getting married here was that it isn’t solely a wedding venue. We didn’t feel like we were part of something commercial. It felt so much more personal. In addition to this you do get many of the function rooms for your own use so it also feels private too.Sent on 10/06/2021
I would definitely recommend a stay in the Downlands suite for a few nights the views are stunning and it’s a lovely room to get ready in for a bride! The hair and make up I had for the day said it was one of the most beautiful venues they had ever visited.
We felt it was very good value for money as well considering what you get included and the quality of the food & service.
Thanks again to everyone at the Hydro you really did make our wedding dreams come true!!

Our very 'casual' amazing wedding
We found the Hydro Hotel just by chance, on an unplanned weekend away.Sent on 15/08/2019
The moment we walked into this gem, we looked at each other….and said “This is it!”
It’s unique ‘Step back in time’ décor, to the breath-taking views of the sea from the beautiful terrace, there was only one choice. We booked the date that day.
From our initial meeting with Angie, the hotel listened to every word we said. They pulled out every stop, and left no stone unturned to make sure they fulfilled our wishes. Right up to our weekend, we were consulted and informed every step of the way.
On the Friday, the Team kept the 70 guests happy with their rooms, breakfast on Saturday was full of compliments.
Thank you to the amazing Julian for his organisation on ‘the day’ from the absolutely stunning reception room, the ceremony venue outside, to just keeping me calm.
Their timings were perfect…Drinks on the Terrace at 5pm, A delicious hot/cold buffet (which seemed) endless at 5:30pm
Our ceremony was at 7pm -we then partied (heavily!!) until 12.
Every single one of our guests were overwhelmed and complimentary with the whole ‘relaxed’ day of No Suits, “ it was perfect in every single way” (quote)
Thank you, Jonathan and your amazing team, for really making our wedding ‘just perfect’, you all really went above and beyond.
As we walked away on Sunday, looked at each other and said “we wouldn’t have changed a thing” x
