Venue Service

By Maria and Simon, on 19 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 15 Jun 2019

Thank you all sooo much! We had a wonderful day, the absolute best. From the beginning of our wedding planning with Jessica before she left then handed over to Stacey & Petra, we felt we were in safe hands. I didn’t stress about anything as every time I came for a meeting I felt everything was taken care of. Nothing was too much, all of the staff were great, from helping me set up our venue room, to serving us drinks and our food. I can’t thank you all enough, the day went by so smoothly, everything ran perfectly! We are so happy to have had our wedding at the Southgate, it will always hold a special place in my heart, I cannot wait to come back for our anniversary!

Our wedding day was amazing!

It was a very special day that we will treasure forever. A big thank you to the staff who supported us on our wedding planning journey and also on the big day. All the guests commented on what a happy and well organised event the wedding was. The food was delicious, the staff were very friendly and accommodating and the room looked great. Nothing was too much trouble and the whole day flowed smoothly. I would recommend this venue to any couples looking for a place to get married.'

great venue for my daughter's wedding
Venue Service

By Valerie Mahoney, on 07 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Mar 2018

My daughter had her wedding booked for 3rd March 2018. Unfortunately due to storm Emma and the Beast from the east most of the guests were unable to get to Exeter. My daughter and husband walked to the hotel. The staff couldn't have been nicer. They rescued what looked like being a disaster. They were so caring and rushed around to accommodate any guest that had been able to attend. They provided a lovely wedding breakfast for the day. They rescheduled the festivities for 4 weeks later making it a very special wedding month, Brilliant staff. Lovely venue.

Best Place ever to get married
Venue Service

By Hazel Cook, on 07 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Mar 2018

I would like to say a massive thank you to Southgate Hotel they were more than amazing. I got married on the 3rd March 2018 it was the snow day. Lots of my guests were trapped due to the bad weather. The hotel were very kind and generous and let me celebrate again 4 weeks later with the guests who were unable to come. I have my DJ who couldn't make it due to snow. The hotel could of easily said its not our fault its an act of God. Despite the bad weather the 3rd March 2018 was still the happiest day of my life. They were all very lovely and professional. And they were also brilliant on the 31st March 2018 for wedding part 2. I want to give a big thank you to Jo, Sammy and Amy. But everyone was brilliant. Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart. Hazel Cook xxx

I wanted to thank all the wonderful staff at the Southgate for the amazing job they did looking after our wedding party on 7th May. my step-daughter and her new husband felt like VIP and all the wedding guests had a great time. The reception staff were superb, the wedding co-ordinater made sure everything ran seamlessly and all the waiting and bar staff were friendly and professional. I cannot praise you highly enough and the value for money was amazing. I would highly recommend your hotel as a wedding venue. Lastly I would just add the breakfast on Sunday morning was to die for I cannot believe the choice you offer. Well done all of you.xx Thank you

Lovely hotel, chosen for our wedding this year in march. Was sold to us by the friendly and welcoming staff. Our wedding coordinator was extremely helpful and arranged regular meetings to make sure we had the day we wanted. All the guests were very impressed with the hotel and the suites were lovely. Would recommend to others.
