My wife and I had our wedding in May this year at The Marwell Hotel. Stephanie was our wedding planner and she was incredibly helpful and friendly and helped us plan what would be a wedding better than either of us could home for. We visited the Hotel to have a look and within a few minutes we both new that it was perfect for us. It has a modern but quirky feel set in the forest and has these stunning walk ways which take you through the woods. The day itself was really well planned and being a bloke I didn't really have a clue what I was doing but the staff helped me through the entire day. The food was outstanding and everyone had nothing but lovely comments about it. We stayed in a lovely suite and true breakfast was also very nice. I would recommend anyone visit to enquire about their wedding plans.

Five Stars

By Mother of the Bride, on 14 Mar 2016

We've just had my Daughter's wedding at Marwell Hotel and what an excellent experience it was. From the 1st planning meeting last year up to leaving the hotel after 7.00pm the following day they made it absolutely brilliant. Everything was very relaxed, we could do what we wanted, when we wanted to, which was so nice as the timings just run away with things during the afternoon and so the wedding breakfast started very late. The staff were absolutely 1st class, nothing was too much trouble and they were all so welcoming throughout the whole weekend. Honestly, if you want a perfect venue with lovely function rooms and lovely bedrooms this is the place to go. Five stars all round, we couldn't be happier.

Thank you so much for making our day so special! All of the staff were so friendly and helpful and we felt so welcome! Especially one man we didn't catch his name and not from the UK originally but we want to thank him!! Our wedding was amazing and it wouldn't have been as good if it wasn't for your hotel and staff!!

We Just wanted to say thank you for all your help with Laura and i's wedding on the 28th December. All the attention to detail really did pay off!!! A special thank you to Andrew who was brilliant and saw to our every need, from the meal the night before and during the wedding right through to the evening, he was very attentive. We didn't want the day to end, and after our mini moon in Paris and now back to the reality of work we really do have the wedding blues!!! Thank you again for everything and hopefully I'm sure we will be over to stay again!!!

I just wanted to say how thankful we are to you and the team! Our wedding day was amazing and a big part of the reason why was having it at Marwell Hotel. It was such a chilled laid back atmosphere which was just what we wanted. The day went smoothly & looked beautiful, thank you for your hard work to make the room look so great. Nothing was too much trouble, even when at 1.30am we were so hungry the gentleman on reception was so friendly & helpful! The venue & bridal suite was beautiful and we are so glad we had our wedding with you, would not have changed a thing!

Best day of our lives
Venue Service

By Danielle Kendall, on 31 Oct 2014

My husband and I can not recommend Marwell hotel any more highly as a wedding venue. We had the most amazing day and we couldn't have wished for anything more. The team were of great support from the first time we visited the hotel right through and up until booking to go back for our first wedding anniversary next month. Our wedding day ran so smoothly and nothing was to much trouble. We had so many compliments on the whole day and the food. Shellie and the team helped make our wedding planning a pleasure and we had no need to be stressed about anything because all of our questions were answered. All in all we couldn't say a bad word about our experience and if we could re-live the day we would not change a thing.

Left with memories to treasure forever

Snipets from a letter received - Unusual venue with a 'Safari' theme, marvellous staff who helped make our Wedding Day one we will always treasure. When we first met the Wedding Co-Ordinator we new the day would go brilliantly & we were so right. Such attention to detail & a kind & caring manner from all the staff involved. We highly recommend the Marwell Hotel to make your dreams come true !

Excellent Service, Food and Value for Money

By Betto2, on 24 Jul 2003

Held my Wedding Reception here in May. Everybody at the Hotel was so helpful in the planning and on the day. The food was excellent and accommodation great and best of all it didn't cost a fortune, one of the most reasonable hotels for Weddings in the area.
