Couldnt have asked for a better wedding day

I was sat looking at wedding venues nearly a year and a half ago before coming across Ardoe House, Not for a second did i think we would be able to afford to have our wedding here. I met with the wedding team and discussed our details. They had a fantastic wedding offer that fitted our budget and had everything included that we wanted! I am so glad i contacted the hotel. We had the best day ever. Cannot wait to come back for our complimentary anniversary stay

Wedding Day

The whole day of our wedding was so perfect. Thank you so much for everything you did. Nicki and all of the staff were amazing and we are both so grateful.
The food was incredible and we had a lot of comments from guests about how good it was and how much they enjoyed it.
I really felt like on the day we didn't need to worry about anything because you had everything taken care of.
Thank you

Best day of our lives

Ardoe house we cannot thank you enough for all that you did for us. We had the best day of our lives as you promised to us from the very start. We picked the Blair's package which came with all the extra benefits of a champagne reception, Canapes and chair covers. We hired the beautiful hotel candelabras from the hotel at a fantastic price. The hotel literally took care of everything. We were only left to worry about my dress, cake and Band! Thank you all so much for the most perfect day!

Our Wedding Day

We got married here last Friday and I honestly cannot thank the staff at Ardoe enough for what was the most perfect day! I cannot think of one negative thing to say. It was a dream from start to finish.
The food that was served at our wedding was delicious, piping hot and well presented. All my guests commented on what a lovely meal it was and all dietary requirements were catered for. I requested, pies, chips and cheese for my evening buffet and it did not disappoint either. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the members of staff and they made our day go so smoothly, when asked anything the response was always "not a problem"

I cannot recommend this hotel enough for a wedding and for a wee break, we stayed here a few times before we got married and I am already asking my new husband when we are going back as after Friday, Ardoe house really is a special place for us!

We dealt with a few wedding coordinators along the way but it was the new wedding coordinator Nicki who saw us through to the end and how amazing was she?! She replied to our emails promptly and answered our millions of questions in the lead up to the big day. Like all the staff nothing was a bother for her and she is a great asset to a wonderful team!

Beautiful Wedding Venue

We picked Ardoe House to host our Wedding last August. For once it was a beautiful sunny day (Very rare in Scotland) and Ardoe looked at its best!! Beautiful surroundings to have all of our photographs taken. Got some great snaps on the staircase as well. The staff were very attentive to our needs on the day and had clearly been prepared well in advance of our requirements. We cannot thank the team enough! Our perfect day could not have been better.

Absolutely Beautiful

I had my wedding at Ardoe house Summer last year and from start to finish we couldn't fault it.
The hotel itself is beautiful and the grounds were great for having our wedding pictures taken. The day ran without a hitch and we are enjoying married life together.
We look forward to returning to Ardoe in a couple of months for our complimentary Anniversary stay.

Ardoe House Hotel is the perfect setting for a wedding

The Ogston Suite is a really special room, particularly to hold the marriage ceremony, with it''s lovely views over the grounds. It is also an excellent venue for an evening celebration with the sizeable dancefloor allowing all guests to join the the dancing.
