    Amazing

    Wonderful service from Poets House from start to finish! We had a fabulous time - the team, food, rooms and venue were brilliant. Excellent support from Christine - we couldn’t have asked for more and would highly recommend.

    Absolutely Perfect!

    We held our wedding at The Poets House on 27th Oct 2018. We booked it a year in advance and worked with the Events Manager to create our very special day. The hotel delivered - and more. It was amazing. The facilities, including the bedrooms, are top class and the staff are incredibly helpful. Indeed, one guest commented that the staff kept smiling throughout and that makes all the difference. When we entered the Writing Room for the wedding breakfast, it had been dressed to perfection and would have done justice to any elite hotel in the world. The food was superb - everyone loved it. But above all, the ambience of this gem of a hotel made it perfect for us. We can not recommend it highly enough.

    Amazing wedding venue & hotel

    We held our wedding reception and party at the lovely Poet's House. Christine was extremely accommodating and ready to help us realise our vision. The food was fantastic, as were the bar staff, and we had a perfect day. We hired the rooms out as part of a wedding package and everyone was blown away by how beautiful the rooms were, and very excited about using the copper baths! Thank you very much x
