A wonderful wedding venue
Venue Service

By Damien Honey, on 28 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Aug 2018

We have been lucky enough to visit the Royal Berkshire several times over the last 18 months and have simply fallen in love with the place. From the moment you arrive at the Royal Berkshire there is a wow factor with the grand drive up to the hotel. You then get a first sight of the lovely hotel and the splendid and incredibly spacious grounds from the car park. We have eaten there on several occasions and sampled their afternoon tea. The food has been excellent and we’ve had no complaints with the friendly but formal service. We chose to have our wedding at the Royal Berkshire and we couldn’t have wished for a better place. We had an excellent Wedding Planner in Colleen who catered for everything that we wanted whilst making some very helpful suggestions and additions and most importantly made us feel so at ease on every visit, that we never once felt stressed. Rooms are very comfortable and lots of different styles and even though we got married in a heatwave, we were put at comfort by the hotel supplying several fans in the rooms. On the day the hotel looked incredible and the staff, the food and the surroundings simply made for the perfect day. Would highly recommend the Royal Berkshire as both a lovely place to visit or to get married at. The Royal Berkshire is at its best in nice weather as the grounds are so stunning, so there is some luck involved, but the inside areas are big enough to cater for everyone. Rooms are very comfortable and lots of different styles and even though we got married in a heatwave, we were put at comfort by the hotel supplying several fans in the rooms.

Thank You

Hi Colleen and Lindsey, I honestly don’t even know where to begin in thanking you for everything you did to make the wedding of our dreams come true! The entire team, bar staff, serving staff, operations staff, sales, food and beverage were all absolutely incredible! Colleen and Lindsey you have the patience of a saint as I know we were pretty demanding at times but you were always fantastic ensuring we were happy and not stressed with anything regarding the wedding. Colleen on the day and the week before the wedding I can’t thank you enough for everything you did, you were incredible and went beyond the call of duty on the day. We honestly had the best day of our lives and both cried leaving the hotel from tears of joy. Our guests can’t stop talking about the event and how amazing the Royal Berkshire was as a venue and how efficient the staff were. I would also like to make a special mention to Steve and Maria who are complete hero’s and the best operations staff I have ever come across. I don’t think I saw them stop at any point. They were incredible and they both just made it run so smoothly. My parents would also like to extend their thanks. They had the most amazing weekend and were blown away by everyone at the Royal Berkshire. I could honestly go on and on about everything you guys did. Thank you from us both for your tireless effort, patience, efficiency and overall just being completely awesome! We can’t wait to come back and the royal Berkshire is such a special place to us! Mr & Mrs Endean

Thank You!

Thank you Lindsey & Colleen for all of your time & support over the last 14 months, you listened to every email and responded back quickly to every silly detailed question, you understood our ideas and with your input too, it all came together to be the perfect day and we couldn't have done it without your support in the planning and lead up to. Thank you to Maria & Edward for being there for us from start to finish on the big day and making sure it all went perfectly to plan. You both paid attention to every detail and were both absolutely lovely, very friendly and professional, which helped make our day extra special and allowed Aidan & I to enjoy the celebrations, knowing everything was under control and our dreams were turning in to a reality. Aidan & I really did have the best days of our lives so far and we cannot fault anything about the day ( other than the heavy rain which unfortunately stopped us being able to use the beautiful gardens) . Everything exceeded our expectations and also our guests expectations, who were all saying how lovely the venue and the staff were throughout the day. Huge thanks to the waiters and bar staff too, who did a fantastic job and never let our glasses get empty. From the day we booked the venue 14 months ago, to the day after the wedding, the service and support was fantastic and we will be highly recommending the hotel for any future weddings or events.

What an Amazing day

By Elaine and Scott Bennison, on 09 May 2017Date of Wedding - 22 Apr 2017

My husband and I got married at the Royal Berkshire Hotel on the 22nd April 2017. From the moment we walked through the entrance to the hotel we were greeted by the friendly staff on the reception desk. We were then introduced to Natassia who is the wedding co-ordinator for the hotel. Natassia is such a friendly, bubbly and helpful person. No matter what you asked of her for your wedding she would do her best to get the job done for you and assist in any way she could. The grounds and rooms of the hotel are beautiful! We can not thank Natassia enough for all the help with our wedding day. The day itself ran so smoothly. All the staff on the wedding day were very friendly and helpful. Our wedding breakfast food was great and the evening food was a hit! So much so my husband and I didn't get a chance to have any! The bridal suite we stayed in was amazing. We truly wish we could have our day again! A big thank you to the staff at the Royal Berkshire Hotel but a huge thank you to Natassia!

An Absolute dream
Venue Service

By Karen & Mark Scarbrow, on 09 May 2017Date of Wedding - 18 Feb 2017

Having visited The Royal Berkshire on previous occasions, we had always felt it to be a warm and friendly venue – comfortably grand but not in any way ‘stuffy’ and having looked at several others, decided on it as our wedding venue. From the very outset, on first meeting the Wedding Coordinators Natassia and Lindsey we were impressed by their professional yet warm approach and consistently helpful attitude. Natassia was the person we dealt with most regularly, and she was helpful, efficient and prompt in replying to any queries we had throughout the planning process making it an easy and enjoyable experience. Our wedding day was an absolute dream. We could not have wished for a better experience. Natassia was there early on the day, making sure that every detail was attended to - the function rooms looked superb, the meal was excellent, the service seamless and the staff, without exception, attentive, obliging and charming. Thanks to Natassia, we felt confident and relaxed knowing that everything was taken care of (she even seemed to arrange for the sun to appear – in February!) and Hening and the team made sure that we and our guests were well looked after throughout the wedding reception. Any minor query was dealt with promptly and so we were able to fully concentrate on spending time with our guests and enjoying our day. We really can’t praise the venue highly enough and would recommend without hesitation it as a great wedding venue.

A Huge thank you

Thank you, Vincent and the team for making the wedding day run smoothly. It was a pity we let you down and ended up being so far off schedule with regards to the timing but as you said beforehand, we should not be surprised if everything doesn't run to time. Apart from this, the day was enjoyable and we had several complements on the food, the service and the ambience at the venue. We are also now beginning to see some of the photos and it seems a great time was being had by all. Rosalyn and Adam, Cynthia and I have many wonderful memories to look back on. Thank you once again for your help and support for helping to make this happen.

Hi Natassia, Hope you had a good break away. Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Giovanni and all the staff who helped make the day so amazing. Giovanni was absolutely amazing and everything went so smoothly because of him! I couldn't have hoped for a better day! Please thank him sincerely!

Hi Natassia, On behalf of my wife and I (hahaha!!), we would just like to say thank you so much for your help in organising our special day. We had a fabulous time and from the outset, you have been amazing and very helpful. Equally, on the day, Giovanni (hope its spelt like that!) was great and always one step ahead…everything ran like clockwork (and there was no spread sheet in sight!). All the staff on the day, reception, bar and everywhere around the hotel were extremely helpful and professional…we have had a huge number of comments about the venue and staff and how awesome it was so thank you and please pass on our gratitude.

Dear Andrew, I would like to compliment your team on their magnificent performance for our wedding last Saturday. From the moment we first visited the Royal Berkshire & met Natassia Robinson, we felt like valued customers & that she couldn't do enough for us. Obviously we had to make the booking. On Friday the 18th your front desk girls were friendly, courteous and fun with myself and my early arriving family and friends. On the 19th, Henning was superb and guided myself and my best man throughout the day with patience and good humour. I would like to thank the Head Chef and his team for great food, the waiting staff for their quality service, the bar team for their professionalism and good humour. Also, the room staff for their helpfulness and willingness to go the extra mile. In all, the Royal Berkshire helped greatly in assisting Rachel and myself to have one of the best times of our lives. Everyone had a fantastic time, and we have been asked by a number to have a regular 6 monthly party at your hotel. Your staff helped to enhance your reputation across the country with my guests and locally myself and Rachel will recommend you wholeheartedly. Thanks again. Kind regards, John and Rachel Cook.

Thank you for a perfect wedding day!

By Mr & Mrs Lucas, on 02 Oct 2012

Just returned from a fab honeymoon. Where do I start..... We had the most perfect wedding day would not have wanted to change a thing. I am so very grateful for all the hard work from yourself and other staff members at the Royal Berkshire. Thank you for making our wedding day the most beautful, enjoyable,memorable etc day of our lives. You all truly made it special just like we wanted. Nothing ever seemed to be too much to ask the drinks reception at the pond was fabuluous, the perfect setting for the string trio. How time flew I was 15 mins late to church, and then with the weather being so fab people were chatting outside church etc, this all some how managed to put use back by an hour. But yet again the staff at Royal Berkshire did not seem phased by this and were so very accomodating. The Wentworth room was stunning , it was just what I had invisaged, so romantic. All came together perfectly. The master of ceremonies was amazing and made things run smoothly. Guests commented on how nice the food was. The wedding breafast itself was delicious, compliments to the chef! The feedback from all friends and family has been truly amazing and I personally feel that the day was so very much perfect due to all the hard work from yourself, the master of cermonies and all other staff members, so I would like to say a massive THANK YOU!
