Such a beautiful wedding venue

Thank you to everyone at the hotel that made our wedding day so special! Everyone was so helpful and friendly. All our guests kept completing the staff and hotel! The food was amazing! Our wedding co-ordinator was so helpful and made the day extra special. Would definitely recommend.

Great atmosphere for a small wedding

We chose the venue for its location in the Chilterns and also for the layout of the hotel with indoor and outdoor spaces. Due to personal circumstances we were delayed in the planning of the wedding. Megan was very helpful and was able to accommodate last minute changes.
On the day the function room was decorated beautifully. The guests enjoyed relaxing in the courtyard and we were able to set up some outdoor games for the children. The food service was excellent. I would also recommend as a good venue for guests to stay over, they serve a good quality breakfast.
Overall, a great atmosphere and suited us for a small wedding.

Married on 28th May 2022

Thank you so much to Megan and all the staff at the Thame Lambert Hotel we had a brilliant day.

Megan was so easy to work with and nothing was too much trouble for her. We were in regular contact in the lead up to our day and she was really helpful in helping us to plan.

The venue itself is brilliant with the courtyard, private patio, main room, function room toilets and bar. Yet it is the hardworking and customer focussed staff that make this wedding venue stand out.

The rooms are excellent - much larger and more reasonable than any of the other venue that we saw which was important as most of our guests were travelling. The bridal suite is spectacular and a great place to get ready especially for a large wedding party as I had five bridesmaids.

The food was delicious and organised in such a way that the wedding breakfast flowed perfectly.
Breakfast is delicious too the morning of and the morning after.

I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone who is thinking of getting married and thank you to everyone for helping in our day.

Lovely wedding venue

Our wedding co-ordinator (Megan) is a credit to the hotel as she works so hard to make sure everything is perfect for your special day. They were really accommodating to anything we requested and nothing was to much trouble.
The hotel is lovely and well kept. The layout is great for events as the bar, dance floor, toilets and outside space are all together.
The whole day had a relaxed atmosphere and all the staff were so friendly. We had 94 to the day and an extra 60 or so to the evening which were perfect numbers. We paid the DJ extra to stay until 1am and because our guests had booked all 59 rooms we didn’t have to worry about keeping the noise down after 12. Also very handy having a 24 hour bar so we all continued the party once the DJ stopped. You can connect your phone to the sound system too to continue background music.
We used Deans Events to decorate and supply chair covers and sashes etc who were absolutely lovely and efficient! They also went above and beyond with the bonus of offering competitive prices. We also used the recommended DJ included in the package who suggested we send over a list of songs which worked perfectly. The dance floor was full all night.
Megan was really flexible with the package and adapted it to our needs. We were really happy with the final costs and got a lot for our money. The food at dinner and evening buffet were delicious and reception drinks were plentiful.
I can’t recommend this venue highly enough!!

The Perfect Day!

We had our wedding at the Thame Lambert Hotel on the 30th October 2021 and everything was fantastic right from booking. Megan has been so helpful, even when it was cancelled twice due to covid the venue were so flexible and understanding.

It was excellent value for money and we even had extras added in which was lovely.

The wedding day went smoothly from start to finish, every member of staff involved were lovely and made sure everything went well.
They decorated the tables beautifully and helped us to set up our own decorations too which was much appreciated.
Everyone commented on how nice the the was also. The only downside is the day went far too quickly!

The hotel rooms were lovely, I stayed two nights as some of us wanted to get ready at the hotel on the day of the wedding. Plenty of room for our wedding party to join also!

Cannot recommend this venue enough!
Thank you Megan & team :)

Our wedding 14/08/2021

My husband and I are filled with praise for the lovely staff at Mercure Thame Lambert hotel. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Megan took the time to get to know us both and was in contact regularly in the lead up to our wedding. The venue was beautiful and exactly what we needed. It was good value too. We had an amazing wedding day and couldn’t have asked for more.

The perfect venu

We looked at a lot of venues in Oxfordshire, and this was by far the best venue. On the day everything went perfectly, the food was outstanding and the service was great with Megan and the team catering to all our requirements whether big or small.

The outdoor area was perfect for a drinks reception and our outdoor wedding ceremony. Furthermore, some of our guests stayed in the rooms which were great and extremely clean.

If you are looking in the Oxfordshire area then this is by far the best venue.

The Perfect Day

We had the most amazing wedding at the Thame Lambert Hotel and it was all down to the staff who helped with our special day. From the moment we booked the big day to the actual ceremony, we received a friendly, professional service from everyone at the venue, in particular Megan and Admiral.

On the actual day, despite the temperature being 33 degrees, the staff were so helpful and accommodating. They tried their best to cater for everyone's needs and wants and made sure that our wedding went smoothly. The food was excellent and many people commented on the service.

Many of our guests stayed at the hotel and the rooms were very spacious and clean. Although a couple of rooms had faulty air con, guests were moved without too much trouble or stress. The bridal suite was amazing, it was like an apartment with the most incredible shower!

We stumbled across the Thame Lambert by accident but we are so pleased that we did as it was the most perfect venue. We would thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for an intimate venue with wonderful staff.

Would recommend to anyone and everyone

We got married here a few weeks ago and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. Megan was very helpful throughout planning our wedding and all staff on the day were fantastic. The food was perfect and we had lots of comments from our guests saying so too. The value for money was incredible.

The perfect day

We recently held our wedding at The Lambert and would highly recommend it. Megan made the whole process very easy and stress free and was there on the day to make sure everything went to plan. We had a fabulous day and had so many lovely comments from guests about the venue. From the night before the wedding to breakfast the morning after, the service we received was excellent, we couldn’t have asked for anymore. Thank you for helping to make our day so special!

Amazing from start to finish.

This venue and the staff are amazing and made our wedding day one to remember and hassle free.

From my first call to book a room for a different event Megan was “On it”. Every email answered in full and fast! Specifically Megan made everything flow before hand and was there from 7am - finish the day before and day of the wedding!

Aaron on the day & other staff were widely praised for being so attentive and helpful by all our guests.

Food was good quality and good portions. The hotel dose not try to make things “posh” and this is a massive positive. You know what your going to get. The food on the day was just the same as the amazing tasting menu, and the chef even customised bits to our preference.

The venue also worked very well with the layout of having the court yard, private terrace & event room all connected. They were helpful to our suppliers allowing early setup and smoke for photos outside.

Overall we would recommend 100%.

The best wedding reception venue!

We had the most wonderful wedding at the Mercure Lambert Hotel last week. Megan was wonderful, helping to ensure that everything was ready for our big day. Nothing was too much trouble for her and she was quick to help with anything that she could. Aaron was excellent with service on the day and extremely attentive to us and our guests. We would highly recommend this hotel. It provides excellent value for money, delicious food which everyone commented on and the staff here were wonderful at making sure we had everything that we needed. We would 100% recommend

Dream day!

We had our wedding reception at The Mercure Thame Lambert Hotel in May 2021 and it was amazing. The Events Coordinator, Megan, was phenomenal. She was so incredibly helpful, responsive and accommodating. If I ever had a question, I could email or call and would get a response straight away with the answer I needed. Having someone help organise the wedding was invaluable as I'd never done it before so Megan's experience made the day go so smoothly. Due to Covid, our plans were interrupted a few times but the staff at the Mercure Thame Lambert Hotel couldn't have done more for us and bent over backwards to help us have our special day how we wanted it. On the day Megan was on hand to help, the waiting staff were amazing, ensuring everyone had canapés, drinks and that everything was going well. The food was amazing with all guests being thoroughly impressed. My husband and I stayed in the Bridal suite the night of the wedding and that was so luxurious I didn't want to leave! Thank you everyone at the venue for making our day so special, couldn't have done it without you!
