Brilliant venue!

I can't thank Molly B enough! Such a lovely venue and fantastic staff!

Key points:
Beautiful venue and grounds
The food was AMAZING
Staff went above and beyond
Very organised and helpful
Great location for Chester

This could be a long one! I'm so grateful to everyone at the mollington banastre for everything, my day went so smoothly and I couldn't have asked for more.

The hotel itself is GORGEOUS it has so much character, and a really chill but sophisticated vibe. The gardens in the back really made it for me, even though it was a bit wet the grounds staff were out the day before the wedding trimming hedges and cutting the grass, it it just looked superb!

I'd like to thank Fintan, who was out point of contact through the whole planning process, he has a great sense of humour and was brilliant to work with.
From the very beginning he was very responsive to my many many emails and calls (as we don't live local to Chester). Everything was so easy to plan and having Fintan there really took out A LOT of the stress of planning.
On the day he was just fab. He made sure everything ran smoothly, he was in contact with my photographer and other suppliers to make sure everything ran according to schedule, and I didn't have to lift a finger! He was brilliant.

Amit was brilliant in the planning process, we paid in installments and he was very responsive to any emails and making sure everything was covered. When I arrived at the venue he and a couple of other staff helped me to carry on all of the decorations and helped in any way they could to set up the room, honestly brilliant service and I felt so looked after!

Other members of staff (I'm so sorry I can't remember everyone's names!) were just brilliant. The bar staff worked tirelessly to make sure everyone had a drink, they were friendly and just so much fun, they really helped making sure everyone was in a good mood with their happy attitudes, and bless them I don't think they sat down once! Honestly great guys and a credit to the hotel.

The reception staff were fab too! We had quite a bit of moving around the day before the wedding, on top of all the guests, but they were just ON IT, really friendly and worked tirelessly to make sure the check ins went smoothly, as well as dealing with any other issues. They were brilliant.

The chef/ kitchen staff OH MY WORD. we stayed at the hotel for 5 nights as we aren't local, and every meal we had there was AMAZING. even breakfast was SO GOOD with lots of choice. But the wedding breakfast was PERFECT. so many people complimented the food, we went for the pork loin and apricot stuffing, words don't do it justice, it was one of the best meals I've ever had.

The day went so smoothly and it couldn't have happened without the amazing staff, everyone involved worked like a well oiled machine, I didn't have to worry about a thing, right from the moment I booked the venue, everything was in safe hands. The hotel is gorgeous and the staff are so friendly. Oh. And there's a pool!
I couldn't fault a thing with this venue and I highly recommend you go for a look around if you have the chance.
Definitely take a look at their packages, as everything is included in the price, use of the venue, the meals, welcome drinks, the bridal suite on the wedding night, they even have decorations to use for centerpieces.

Perfect

People often ask us what was the best part about our wedding day and for both of us the best part about the day was that we didn’t worry about anything. Fintan and Clive work very closely with the vendors they recommend and for good reason. Their operation is smooth and slick, the co-ordination they have with their staff and vendors is amazing and we have both worked in the hospitality industry for years. It was an incredible feeling to know that we could relax and enjoy our day knowing everything was going smoothly and our guests were all enjoying themselves. We never had to keep track of time, Fintan was there making sure everything was running smoothly and on time.

Can we do it all over again! Brilliant thank you

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for all your hard work in making our wedding the best day of our lives. It would not have been possible without you all. Every last detail was perfect and ( as far as we knew ?? ) there was not 1 little hiccup!!

All of our guests had a wonderful time and couldn’t praise the venue enough. It was so lovely to see it all come together so beautifully on the day – and that is all down to you guys – thank you so much again! Best wishes,

Wonderful experience

Having found the Mollington after going a google search we just had to see the venue in person and we were not disappointed – the venue is wonderful and the whole team looked after our family so well! Cant wait to come back for our anniversary.

Can we do it all over again!

Thank you for everything you did during the year or so of our wedding planning. We couldn’t help but feel we that at times we were inundating you with e-mails and phone-calls, particularly as the big day approached, but you always took the time to help us emerge from moments of panic feeling calm, focused and reassured. In particular, and given the difficulties we encountered with our initial photographer and florist, thank you for pulling a rabbit out of the hat and dropping Lucy and Amanda right into our laps! When we combine that with the good fortune of Baxter & Ted being able to attend, we feel like we ended up with something of a dream team of suppliers, and they all fit our vision for the day perfectly. None of this would have been possible if you hadn’t been so thorough in your efforts to investigate and appreciate exactly what we wanted for the day.

We would like to thank you again for all of your help from the day we enquired about booking our wedding, until the moment it was time for bed on our day. Nothing was ever too much for ask for, and questions were always answered super fast. We couldn’t have asked for a better day, or a better venue. It was the first venue that we viewed, and we left with such excitement knowing that it was the venue that we wanted to get married at; It really did exceed all exceptions of how the venue looked on the day, and how the day came together. Thank you to you and your team for the most perfect day.

The best! Mollington Chester

As well as a huge thank you to you Fintan, we also need to praise Clive who amongst all the others who worked tirelessly to make sure that everything was how we had imagined, and without all of your staff’s dedication, our special day would not have been so perfect.

We must mention that the food was divine, and despite our difficult request of a vintage style afternoon tea, your catering team did a perfect job, with every item being of the upmost quality.

Presentation of all of the food was exactly how we had imagined it all those months ahead, and it helped to create a sense that ours was no ordinary wedding.

It is true what they say that you need to make the most of the day, as it goes by so quickly, and before we knew it everyone had left, and they day was over.
It was so difficult to say goodbye to the most perfect day, and to accept that it was now just a lovely memory.

Gorgeous Hotel

Thank you so much for all your help and care with our wedding – we had the most amazing day!! It surpassed our expectations in every way and we loved every second of it!!
We found you through the internet and the amazing service started from the day we got engaged – you were so helpful on the phone and then fitted us in to see the venue the next day.

As soon as we walked into the Mollington we knew this was it! It was the only venue we went to see and we loved it.

Nothing was too much trouble in the run up to the wedding and everything was handled very smoothly. Both Fintan and the team are amazing and couldn’t do enough for us.
The day itself was absolutely incredible, the feel of the venue, the food and the weather! Everything was taken care of, allowing us to enjoy the most amazing day! I wish we could do all of it again!!

Nothing too much trouble

We're do I begin. Best day of my life. We booked our wedding at the hotel 18 months ago and every step of the wedding the level of hospitality the hotel has shown us has been out of this world. Nothing was too much. Wether it be inviting us to wine tasting evenings or complimentary meal tastings they were always proactive in ensuring that me and my wife had the best day we could possibly have. Even allowing us and our two boys access to the spa and leisure facillicities.Wether it be Clive Nick or finton (hope I've spelt that right)every query or issue we encountered was dealt with swiftly and professionally always with our needs at the heart of the issue. Great team of people. They looked to accomadated us and our guests in every way possible. On the day itself everything was set out perfectly for us. Staff were very polite and the access we had to the rest of the hotel was outstanding and really aids your day wether that be in the stunning outer gardens or the reception area of the hotel. All the feedback from our guests has been the same completely positive and nobody could believe how little we had paid in comparison to the level of wedding we were able to put on. Great value for money without compromising on quality. We could never thank you enough and will certainly be back soon. Paul and Gemma
