We would like to thank all the staff at Pontlands Park a massive thank you for ensuring out wedding was absolutely perfect. The staff, including Jonathan, Lisa, Colette, the reception lady with blond hair (sorry can't remember her name, Katie perhaps?) and the waiters were all amazing, nothing was too much trouble, Jonathan was very thoughtful from the minute we arrived to the minute we left. The food was so scrumptious (including the evening buffet), we had so many compliments on it throughout the day and evening! The rooms were beautiful, the whole venue was perfect. We will definitely be coming back for dinner/afternoon tea/overnight stay! Thanks again for everything!

Our Perfect Wonderful Wedding at Pontlands Park
Venue Service

By Emma, on 27 May 2016

My new husband and I booked Pontlands Park for our wedding reception, and it was the best decision. We absolutely cannot recommend it highly enough. Everything was perfected to the smallest detail, the waiting staff were polite and friendly, the food was exceptional and our disco was able to last until midnight which I understand is not common amongst non-exclusive wedding venues. Our four-poster room was stunning; we had 22 guests staying with us in a range of rooms and everyone said how beautiful their room was. Thank you Pontlands for an absolutely dream day.

Our Wedding at Pontlands Park

By Gemma, on 27 May 2016

We have finally got round to writing a much needed and well deserved 5* review. Back on July 12th 2014 we looked around my dream wedding venue and booked our reception for 25th October 2014. In that short time Pontlands prepared, organised and catered to our exact needs making our day absolutely perfect. The venue looked amazing; the marquee has always been my dream! It looked like a fairytale came true! The whole hotel both inside and out was clean, tidy and spotless... The staff were fantastic- all so friendly and polite. The food was amazing, hot, fresh and served to a very high standard. There is nothing we would have changed! There was not one error or one complaint to be made at all by any guest. We then stayed in the wedding suite and other family members stayed in other rooms; again all 10/10 for cleanliness and decoration. The breakfast was also delicious the following day. The only down side was having to check out the next day from this wonderful hotel! We would highly recommend to anyone and recommend a visit.. To this day people still comment about the venue and our wedding and having to been a number of weddings with family since ours, I can honestly say none of them compare to Pontlands! We will visit Pontlands in the future for lunch, dinner, afternoon tea and stay for our anniversaries! Thank you to all the amazing staff at Pontlands for our perfect day.

Our Perfect Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Emily, on 27 May 2016

If you are looking for the perfect wedding venue then you should look no further than Pontlands! Our wedding was on 4th Sept 2016 and we were blown away by the venue and the staff! Nothing was too much, and everyone couldn't stop commenting on how great and helpful all the staff were. Not forgetting how amazing the food was! Most of the wedding party stayed in the hotel the night before and we all enjoyed good food and a good couple drinks! On the actual wedding day they took away all stress and hassle and made it the perfect day it was. I couldn't recommend Pontlands Park enough, we will 100% be returning for our anniversaries and any special occasions!!!

We decided to hold our wedding, both ceremony & celebration at Pontlands Park on 5 December 2015. From our first visit & meeting with Lisa, we were sure Pontlands would deliver the service & attention to detail that we wanted, we were not disappointed. I cant thank Pontlands Park enough for making our special day a great success. Everything was decorated for Christmas & looked stunning & a lot of care had been taken to decorate & set the tables in the conservatory in accordance with our wishes. The wedding breakfast was delicious & I was very happy with the evening buffet. All the waiters/waitresses were very attentive to all our guests, nothing was too much trouble and they were very courteous. Everything ran like clockwork under the watchful eye of Jonathan and later on Nathan, excellent service from both. Many of our guests commented on how well run Pontlands Park was, how nice the food had been and that the rooms were lovely. We spent our wedding night in a delightful 4 poster bed room, beautifully decorated, very comfortable, warm and with great facilities:- coffee & tea making, iron & ironing board and a large & pleasant ensuite. Breakfast the next morning was of a good standard & plentiful. I cannot recommend Pontlands Park enough, we trusted them with our special day and they delivered a faultless service, top marks all round. Thank you to all.

NYE Wedding

By Steph & Simon, on 27 May 2016

Where to begin... We had the best wedding day ever! We cannot fault Jonathan and his staff for the service we received on our wedding day and the following morning for breakfast. The food was fantastic with many comments from our guests about the quality and similarly with respect to the wine! Nothing was too much for any of the staff, particularly our waiter Ryan who was an absolute star. We would recommend the venue to everyone be it for their wedding or just an overnight stay, as the accommodation was brilliant! Thank you so much for allowing us to celebrate the start of our married life in such style :-) Steph and Simon x

A wedding to remember
Venue Service

By Jonathan, on 27 May 2016

What a fantastic and amazing venue. We had our wedding there over the May bank holiday and our friends and family had basically booked out all the rooms. The hotel and the marquee looked stunning and everyone has said how beautiful,their rooms and the grounds were. The staff were very efficient and helped on the build up to the day. The bar staff and waiters on the day were very friendly and the managers were on hand to help throughout the event. A very calm and relaxed atmosphere all round. The food was delicious, from breakfast, to the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet (those glazed sausages in particular, yum).

Perfect place to get Married

By Elaine, on 27 May 2016

My son and daughter in law had an amazing wedding here last Friday. I would like to thank all the staff involved at Pontlands Park in hosting a fabulous wedding day From the moment the preparations and celebrations started until we finally left on the Saturday we felt we had been in the hands of a very professional team Everything ran like clockwork but also managed to have an extremely personal feel to it We have been inundated with numerous comments from the guests to say how lovely the whole experience was including the venue, the marquee, the outside gardens, the rooms, the food, the staff – in fact just about everything!!! Pontlands Park and the staff played a huge part in creating such a lovely memorable day for our families and friends but most importantly for the happy couple Would highly recommend this as a place to hold a wedding

Perfect Venue, Perfect Day!
Venue Service

By Mrs Corbett, on 08 Jan 2014

We had our wedding reception at Pontlands Park in August 2013. We had our reception in the marquee, and the day was perfect, and it was all down to the amazing venue and incredible staff at Pontlands. From first visiting the venue and driving up the driveway up to the doors, i knew we had found our venue. The staff were so accommodating from start to finish- they were all so professional and friendly. I cannot thank them enough. The food was delicious and everyone has commented on it since the wedding. They have lovely gardens for photos and drinks reception. The hotel rooms were so comfortable and modern. I cannot sing the praises of the venue enough. I would definitely recommend people going to visit this wonderful, reasonably priced venue.
