Everything went perfectly!
Venue Service

By A Ryan, on 17 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Aug 2018

Just wanted to say thank you again for all your help in organising our wedding. Everything went perfectly and we were so happy with how the whole day went. Everyone at the venue was brilliant and so helpful on the day.

Thank you for providing a wonderful experience
Venue Service

By R Chana Father of Bride, on 17 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2018

We just wanted to say what a great day we had. All the facilities were beautiful including the grounds, the Aspley suite and the Orangery, and your Operations team worked most professionally and efficiently to ensure that all the areas needed for the ceremony and the reception were ready on time and looked magnificent. We would also like to thank you for helping us to plan the layout of the Aspley suite and for being accommodating in terms of where to leave things before the ceremony and after the reception. We felt the day went very smoothly and both we and our guests enjoyed the whole occasion immensely. Thank you again for providing such a wonderful experience.

A beautiful setting, rooms excellent & staff nice, but the hotel is very unorganised, the food was nothing like the tasting, more like a cavery on the day, I could not even eat my potatoes and I was the bride, the front of house manager left a week before & no one bothered to tell me till i rang 2 days before my wedding, I asked for no shots/doubles to be served on the free bar, which they were, so therefore we ran out, it was very very unorganised, be very wary brides & grooms

Excellent Service
Venue Service

By Margaret Johnson, on 22 Nov 2007

The Service at Shendish Manor is great. Each staff member worked really hard to get our daughters wedding perfect. This was a perfect day and evening, and all enjoyed themselves. We would recommend this hotel to anyone

Wonderful Accommodation
Venue Service

By Ruth Brown, on 14 Nov 2007

We went to our friends wedding at the weekend and the hotel was outstanding, bedrooms all clean, fresh and new. I am now holding a date for my wedding in 2009. I can't wait!

Super Venue for all occasions
Venue Service

By Mrs McKenzie, on 26 Oct 2007

Shendish Manor has splendid facilities to cater for all occasions. They can cater for up to 350 for your wedding. I found this venue by looking on hitched and have had a showround already for my sons wedding. I am holding a date already waiting for my son to see it, this would suit all couples down to the ground.

October Wedding
Venue Service

By Sarah Long, on 23 Oct 2007

Our large wedding for 250 people went without a hitch. I was thinking what can go wrong, but nothing did. The day was perfect and the attention to detail from the organisers, chef and staff were fantastic. Definately worth having your wedding at Shendish Manor. My husband to be also played golf before getting married to me, and he really enjoyed his bonding with his male friends and family

A splendid Affair
Venue Service

By Mrs Shaw, on 23 Oct 2007

My daughter had her wedding a few weeks ago at Shendish Manor. She picked the venue before she saw the final finishing touches of the new hotel, so ofcourse, mothers panic. All was great, better than I imagined. The service, food and organisation of the hotel was outstanding

Small Occassion
Venue Service

By Greg Robinson, on 15 Oct 2007

We had a small wedding for only 20 people but for Shendish Manor nothing was too much trouble. We had the best time and it was a wonderful affair. The Manor and bedrooms are fantastic. My new wife was over the moon.

Great Showround, worth visiting
Venue Service

By Amanda Marcus, on 11 Oct 2007

Our showround to the hotel was professional and we were looked after very well. We were not rushed. The grounds are amazing and so is the rest of the new hotel. A real eye opener. We went onto Hitched to obtain a brochure with a few venues, but Shendish Manor was the quickest in their response. We have since been back and paid our deposit. 5* to the Sales and the friendly team.

What a fab new hotel
Venue Service

By Mary & Scott, on 10 Oct 2007

We requested a brochure, which we got the next day! Very efficient. We then asked for a showround of the hotel and the Sales Team were very accommodating. We booked that same night, the new Apsley Suite which caters for 300 is great for those large family weddings. The staff were helpful and helped by changing some of the packages to our needs. Private Garden for our guests and air conditioned bedrooms. We can not wait until May 2008!

First Civil Partnership
Venue Service

By Robertson, on 08 Oct 2007

We were the first to have our celebration at Shendish Manor and to feel that this was the 1st we felt honoured. The day was a day to remember and our guests were very impressed with the new hotel and staff
