    So accommodating

    Sophie made this experience as easy and enjoyable as she possibly could. She was always quick to respond, kept us in the loop with relevant government changes and was so flexible and accommodating with last minute changes and personal things we wanted to make the day special. We honestly could not have asked for more and we had the most special and intimate wedding thanks to Sophie and the team at the Mercure.

    We only had 6 months to plan our special day and Sophie was so good we didn't worry about a thing she help organise it perfectly and stress free. The day was perfect from when I arrived all the staff that played a part in our special day was so helpful and friendly. All the cooked food was perfect all served hot and quickly and all our guests commented on how nice the food was. Our experience we couldn't fault we stayed at the hotel 2 nights after our wedding and the staff continued with the great service and made us feel welcome. Would highly recommend.

    Lovely Day!

    I got married here on the 23rd September 2017. We had been planning a year and this was the first venue we had looked at, I fell in love so we booked it and I was over the moon. Sophie the wedding planner was amazing, I stayed the night before and booked a big room so it was easy for me my bridesmaids, hair, makeup, photographer and videographer to all be in.
    Overall me and my husband did have a lovely day!

    Absolutely Perfect!

    If any one is planning a wedding and not booked yet, I can not recommend this hotel enough. My daughter got married here 21/04/17 and have to say everything went perfectly, from the first meeting with Sophie the wedding organiser, to the special day, nothing was too much trouble. All the staff went above and beyond to make my daughters wedding a very special day to remember, and cannot thank them enough. If I had to do it all again, this would be my first choice. A very big thank you to Nathan the hotel manager and his team, for an unbelievable day and night x

    Incredible day, would totally recommend!

    My wife and I got married on Friday 9th Sept and it was amazing! We dealt with Sophie who was in communication the whole way through and made the process very easy and stress free (no matter how many emails/questions I asked). We had Ian on the night of our wedding who was amazing - he even joined us for a cuppa at the end of the night during a small political debate haha! The suite we got was brilliant, although the only thing I'd say is that there was no air con and if it wasn't for the industrial sixes fan we would've melted! All in all we loved having our reception at Mercure and would 100% recommend!

    Great venue, wonderful staff, perfect day!

    We recently had our wedding ceremony and reception here and it was so lovely! We had a fabulous time! The staff were all very helpful and accommodating. Everything we requested was attended to and the day worked out just the way we wanted it to. Many thanks to Sophie, our event manager and Ian who made our day run very smoothly from start to finish. Very happy couple.

    Wedding reception venue

    We held our wedding reception at the Mercure Tunbridge wells in September 2015. In the run up we dealt with Sophie who was a very helpful advisor in various matters. The day was wonderful and the room decorated beautifully, we had our drinks and canepes in the courtyard area where there was room for younger guests to play. The food was delicious if the service was a little slow- but we didn't notice this at all although we came out of room when evening guests were already arriving. The toast master was excellent and announced guests for our line up brilliantly and tried to keep the day moving well. Our bridal suite was lovely 2 separate rooms. The venue suited us perfectly as there were toons for guests to stay in and it was near the church we held our ceremony in. Thank you all at the Mercure for your help and baking our day so special.
