WOW, Amazing, Fantastic, Fabulous, Excellent!
By Mr & Mrs Nicholls, on 19 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 30 Mar 2018
We recently got married at the Berystede and I cannot thank the team enough.
Started off with the wonderful Sarah being the best wedding planner there is, no request was too big or small - she reeled us in with her bubbly personality and above and beyond approach.
Sarah then handed over to Lauren and this girl is UNREAL!!! she knows her stuff and the whole weekend was planned out to within the very last second. Lauren is an operational, logistical goddess and has everything on lock down it is a well oiled ship. Lauren worked alongside Chris and what a diamond he is, Ensuring everything was slick and wonderful.
Every single member of staff that worked on our wedding was unbelievable. Friendly, Helpful, Happy, Amazing, Fabulous. Everyone worked with so much passion and enthusiasm and they really do care which made our wedding the best day of our lives.
All of our guests were super impressed with the hotel, the staff, the food, the atmosphere, the rooms, the rates, the spa, the pool.
THANK YOU!! THANK YOU
Perfect wedding at the Berystede

We had our wedding reception at the Berystede on Friday 28th July 2017. We are still reeling from what was such a perfect day... More than we could ever have imagined. What was instrumental in making our day so perfect was the incredible staff at the Berystede hotel. From day 1, Sarah our wedding coordinator was just amazing. She listened to everything we wanted and helped us to make it happen, offering advice but not telling us what we wanted. We had a very musical wedding where we had live music playing all day, (some of it performed by ourselves!) And where some hotels instantly saw this as a logistical nightmare, nothing seemed to be too much for the staff at the Berystede. There was also an excellent contingency plan for if the weather was not on our side on the day... which is wasn't! On the day, Chris, the conference and banqueting manager acted as our MC and ran the day. He was magnificent! He made the day run so smoothly and had all staff doing everything that needed to be done brilliantly. He was so gentile and kind to our guests too which many people commented on.
The food was also of the highest standard and there was plenty of it! The morning after the Wedding, the Berystede organised for us to have a private breakfast with all of our guests, before relaxing in the spa, which was a great way to unwind after what was a amazing but busy day and a very late night!
We cannot thank the Berystede hotel and all its staff - especially Sarah and Chris - enough for our amazing wedding day.
Love Katherine and Jack (Mr and Mrs Smith!)
Wedding, Absolutely Perfect Day!
By Mr & Mrs Bell, on 14 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 11 Jun 2017
We decided to marry at the Berystede after getting engaged there and visiting for a few spa weekends. Every time we visited, the staff were very professional and attentive to our needs. Those that helped run our wedding day, Lauren and Chris, were fantastic! Lauren helped me stay calm when we had a meeting with her the day before the wedding and told me time and time again everything will be okay. . . and it was! Lauren’s attention to detail and dedication to our wedding was truly remarkable. She laboured behind the scenes from dusk till dawn to ensure our day ran perfectly. If there were any problems, she found a way to solve them quickly without needing to interrupt our celebrations. Chris also deserves a special mention. Acting as a toastmaster Chris worked tirelessly to make sure that both us and our guests were in the right places at the right times. Chris’ kind yet assertive nature was perfect to ‘herd’ our guests to where we needed them to be. Most importantly, Chris’ charisma and charm really made our day. He guided us through all of the formalities with care and professionalism, leaving us with the feeling that the Berystede truly cared about our special day. For any future brides thinking of having a wedding here, you will not regret it! The Berystede customer service is exceptional and we will certainly be back for another stay, perhaps on our first anniversary ?. Thank you to everyone at the Berystede for helping to make our day special and memorable, for all of the right reasons. We truly appreciate all your hard work.

We chose the Berystede for our Wedding haven't stopped smiling since. Everything was absolutely perfect, from planning with the excellent Sarah McLaren to the day itself with Chris as our Master of Ceremony and all-round Supreme Being. The day went off without a hitch and Chris literally could not have done more to make our day amazing. I have never met somebody who does their job with such attention to detail and he really made it the memorable occasion it was. The other staff were flawless too, and everything ran like clockwork.
The food was fantastic and was exactly the same standard as the trial we had. From the night before when we stayed at the hotel to leaving on the Sunday with a private breakfast for our friends and family, it was just too good for words.
I really can't thank you all enough for the best day of our lives and a wonderful way to kick off a marriage.
The perfect day!

I would just like to give some feedback from our wedding 27th June 2015. From the moment we stepped foot in the venue we loved everything about it the staff we're always smiling and polite nothing was too much trouble. Danielle ran everything very smoothly She was amazing at answering all emails promptly and alway put our minds at rest about the day.
We visited on several occasions and the staff we're always professional and gave a very personal service We we're amazed at the knowledge of the wines when we came for our menu tasting the staff definitely know the products on offer at the hotel.
The night before our wedding there was a big party of us seated outside everyone ordered food and drinks which arrived promptly and tasted delicious On the day both Dannielle and the banqueting manger were amazing they we're there adding the personal touches and we couldn't ask for anything more everything ran smoothly and too time and all our guests commented on how fab the staff we're in serving the main meal and with the buffet. I even missed the buffet in all the excitement but the manager made sure I had a sandwich before I went to bed excellent service.
On a whole we couldn't of asked for anything more for our day it was perfect in every way and we truly believe that this was because of how organised and truly amazing Dannielle and all her team are We really cannot thank you enough!
What a wonderful day...
By Mr and Mrs Knights, on 21 May 2015
We got married at the Berystede on 21.03.2015 and what a perfect day it was. The staff were incredibly helpful from start to finish - from the planning process to on the day and beyond. We have had endless comments about how wonderful the food was and everything was seamless on the day. If we could do it over – we wouldn’t change a thing
We were so happy with the whole day!

Please can we put this wedding feedback on the website:
We were so happy with the whole day. Dinner the evening before and breakfast the next morning were lovely, it's really great to have the opportunity to share those moments together!
The set-up was amazing, it was exactly how we wanted it! I am blow away by the time and effort taken to make our day so memorable. James and the team were great on the day and very friendly. It was so nice knowing everything was under control and we didn't need to worry about anything.
Our room was lovely too!!!
I am so happy!

Fantastic venue, Brilliant staff
By Amandine and Kevin, on 02 Mar 2014
We got married at the Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa on 25th August 2013. We couldn't have hoped for a better place to celebrate our wedding (ceremony, wedding breakfast, buffet and disco). The wedding coordinators (Michalina and Amy) were so professional, friendly and helpful from our first visit until we packed the day after our wedding. There were so many details to think about, but they were there each step of the way to guide us and create our perfect day. The bridal party arrived the day before the wedding (coming from France) and we all received a warm welcome from the "wedding" team who helped with luggage and numerous boxes (own decorations, sweetie bar, etc). I (the bride) was given an amazing room, really spacious that was perfect to get ready the next morning. On the wedding day the whole staffs was brilliant to accommodate us and our guests and made us feel really special. The food was amazing, even my family (French and good food lovers) complimented our menu choice (to my relief). The Berystede Banqueting Manager (man in charge on the day) helped the maid of honour and best man through the day to make it seamless and resolve any issues (I didn't even realise there was issues!). He even helped organise a surprise for us at the end of the day by creating a rose petal way in the bridal suite and heart made of rose petals on the bed. The smell was divine and walking my sore bare feet on the petals so soothing after such a long day. Finally, the pricing was really reasonable and there were no unexpected charges (Don't choose open bar for guests!!). I highly recommend this hotel to celebrate your special day. May you have a wonderful wedding too!!!
Great venue and a hard working team
By Nick and Dinara, on 26 Apr 2012
We got married at the Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa on 17 February 2012.
The venue's Wedding & Events co-ordinator, Natalie O'Mahoney was a joy to work with in the organisation and run up to the big day and pulled out all the stops to make sure everything went without a hitch. Truly "above and beyond" service.
We also want to say a big thanks to the Banqueting Manager, Raf, for flawless and smooth execution of the wedding breakfast and evening entertainment. All of our guests bar none really enjoyed themselves and commented on how well looked after they felt.
The Tower Suite was perfect, as was chilling out in the gorgeous spa with our families and friends the following day.
The picturesque venue was perfect for the obligatory wedding photos.
The food was great as well.
As were the spacious and clean guest rooms.
In fact there isn't anything about the Berystede I can really criticise. Everything was spot-on.
Thanks once again to the Berystede team for the part you played in a perfect day that we will remember warmly for the rest of our lives.
Nick and Dinara
