    A magical day!

    We got married at Whately Hall Hotel in April and we had the most magical day! The hotel and grounds are absolutely beautiful but it is the staff that really made the day even more special. Lisa, Revv and the team were absolutely brilliant and we can’t praise them enough. We dealt with Lisa from the very beginning of looking around and booking and she could not have been more helpful. Emails were responded to quickly, she had great advice and she really went above and beyond to make our day incredible. Lots of our guests commented on how well organised everything was and how helpful Lisa and the team were and they deserve lots of thanks and praise. Planning a wedding is stressful but we didn’t once have to worry about the venue as we knew everything was taken care of - it was such a relief. The food was also delicious and there was lots of it. We would highly recommend Whately Hall Hotel as a wedding venue!
