Couldn't have asked for more
Venue Service

By Matt & Ane, on 25 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Apr 2019

We got married in Lancaster and had the Wedding Reception at Lancaster House Hotel. Half of our guests were Norwegian and they all stayed at the hotel so we actually had a long wedding weekend at Lancaster House Hotel. The entire experience was incredible, all of the staff, from reception to spa, made it the perfect stay and couldn't do enough for us. Lise, the Wedding Coordinator really took care of us leading up to the wedding, we could ask her for anything and she genuinely cared that everything was perfect, which was very comforting for us. Our guests were all very impressed with the quality of the food, the excellent and friendly service, and the full stay. I couldn't recommend this place more, beautiful building, great food, lots of lovely rooms for guests, convenient for transport with bus & taxi, and they definitely know how to host a wedding.

Our Perfect Wedding Reception
Venue Service

By Sam and Laura Griffin, on 03 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 28 May 2017

We met at university in Lancaster and knew that we would be married there. We were underwhelmed by the venues on offer, until we stepped into Lancaster House Hotel. It's upmarket yet homely vibe drew us in immediately (both of us thought it would be way above our budget!). We knew it was the perfect venue for us as soon as we met with wedding coordinator, Lauren Cole-Edwards. She was down to earth, personable and knew just what we wanted. From that day forward she couldn't have been more attentive. Every request and meeting she met our every need. When it came to the wedding day everything ran perfectly. Lauren coordinated the entire thing! Even down to the last detail. Our MC, David was fantastic and could not have done enough for us and our families. He was the last to leave in the evening and the first to arrive at breakfast, to coordinate a beautiful buffet for all of our guests. It was just the most perfect day, we will never forget how fantastic everyone was at Lancaster House, it made our day so special. Thank you!

By Danielle and Jason Wilkinson, on 05 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 22 Apr 2017

Everything(!!) that Lancaster House did for us for our wedding was first class. Right from our initial viewing of the venue up until after the wedding, Lauren and the rest of the staff were amazing. They literally couldn't have done any more for us; they made us feel so welcome and that our day was just as important to them as it was for us. When initially looking round the venue I got a really good feel about it and what could be done there. We were able to make use of two function rooms for our day; one for the wedding breakfast and one for the evening reception. This greatly appealed to me, and gave our day a great flow and provided variety for our guests. Both function rooms work as a great blank canvas to be decorated into whatever style you want - they can be completely transformed. Also, I never once felt like they were 'trying to get a sale' or putting pressure on us to book. On our day, nothing was too much trouble. They helped make our day perfect. Whilst working incredibly hard in the background, they gave us and our gusts the feeling that everything was under control, and didn't once appear to be 'too busy' to help anybody. Even the members of staff who were not directly involved in the wedding were amazing and made us and all of our guests feel incredibly welcome. Our guests commented on how beautiful the food and the wine was, how friendly and helpful staff were, and how beautiful the venue was. We honestly could not recommend Lancaster House Hotel enough - we were extremely happy with our choice!

Kay and Alan's wedding

By Alan and kay Carradice, on 10 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 07 Apr 2017

From meeting Lauren and Clare at our first meeting we knew our wedding would be perfect, they were very friendly,helpful, full of ideas and suggestions and overall very professional. Our day was perfect from start to finish even the sun came out so they moved our drinks reception for our guests outside which was great. They were there to make sure we didn't need for anything and when they left later that day they introduced us to another member of staff should we need anything. The following morning they were there again making sure we were happy which we were! The Buffett was 1st class and our room in the hotel was lovely. Best day ever, thanks Lauren, Clare and Lancaster house team.

Our wedding

By Helen and Sean Robinson, on 30 May 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Apr 2017

As everyone knows planning a wedding is one of the most stressful occasions of your life. I did this whilst moving house and having a baby! Crazy. However Lauren and her team at Lancaster house were out of this world. They were so accommodating and put themselves out to give us what we wanted for our day and meet us at times that were suitable for us due to my husbands working hours. I can not recommend this venue enough. Even the cost was very attractive as a wedding can really pull on the purse strings. The decor and staff on the day were amazing. They made our day even more special than we could have imagined and we now have a lovely relationship with Lauren and feel very welcomed every time we enter the hotel. Thank you so much. We wish we could do it all again. You made our day perfect.

Our wedding
Venue Service

By Lee Taylor-McCormick, on 29 May 2017Date of Wedding - 04 Feb 2017

We didnt really know much about Lancaster house until we were taken there by a family member. We were having trouble with our venue at the time and were blown away by the welcome, attention to detail and kindness of the staff at Lancaster house. We were able to choose our menu for our wedding breakfast - which is hard to find in many places. We were invited in for 1 of the many wedding open days and were amazed at how the room we had booked was transformed. We ended up using 2 of the suppliers they recommended. The wedding breakfast tasting we were taken through how they would be serving it and the food was fantastic. On the run up we had trouble with guests unable to attend and a few litterally the day before confirming their attendance, the hotel were great and sorted everything out efficently. On the day we arrived to red carpet VIP treatment and the day went so much better than we imagined. Total credit due to the hardworking staff who were smiling, friendly and helpful throughout. Me and my new bride would really recommend this place to anyone looking for a venue. Many happy memories

My husband and I had the wedding of our dreams at Lancaster House! We got married in September 2016, and I genuinely cannot rate this place highly enough. I am not from the area, and only moved locally 7 years ago, so when we got engaged it was really hard finding the right location for our special day. I became slightly obsessed with wedding fayres and that is when we came across Lancaster house and I fell in love. It is a stunning hotel, with lovely rooms, great food and brilliant leisure facilities, but what really makes it special is the staff. Lauren is amazing- a brilliant efficient wedding /event planner and really friendly too. Nothing is too much trouble, and she is brilliant at organising the whole thing (including the finer details). She helped us so much in planning our day and i found out very near to the wedding that I was actually pregnant and didn't want guests to know so Lauren and her team covered it up brilliantly for us :) I spent quite a lot of time and effort planning how I wanted the rooms (we used both the rooms) to look and They really saw our vision and set it all up for us exactly how I wanted it. The day went swimmingly! Everything was perfect and went exactly as we'd organised it. The food is absolutely amazing and the fact you get to choose off the normal menu is a fantastic idea. Our guests had steak on our wedding day and absolutely loved it! The Parkin is especially amazing- if that's on the menu I highly recommend! Everything about our wedding was amazing and that is thanks to Lancaster house! If you're considering getting married there- DO IT :)
