More than we could ever have imagained...
By Jodi Lewis, on 08 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 07 Mar 2019
We held our wedding at Stanbrook Abbey 7th March and were over the moon with the day! We booked the ‘callow great hall’ package where we had the ceremony and wedding breakfast in the Callow Great Hall which was absolutely stunning and perfect for what we envisaged! The staff we fantastic, with a special mention to Liza and Clyde who co-ordinated and managed our day from start to end. Our guests were all shocked at how beautiful the venue looked and all commented on how perfect everything was. Food was fantastic throughout and we could not fault a single thing. There were some slight renovations going on during the day in another part of the building but this did not impact on our day at all. Overall, our wedding was more than we could ever have imagained and we were impressed with Stanbrook Abbey from the start of the process to the end of our beautiful special day!
Stanbrook Abbey NYE Wedding
By Stacey McCabe, on 21 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 31 Dec 2018
Absolutely amazing wedding venue. Callow Hall for the ceremony has a Wow Factor that starts the day off in the most beautiful setting imaginable. In my opinion there is no better venue in the UK that has the ability to impress like Stanbrook does. The space is vast and so versatile and the staff are full of original ideas and ways to make our wedding day unique and special to us. We had singers, tarot readers, acrobats, fire performers and so much more that meant our NYE was magical in every sense. We had exclusive use of the whole venue and it was well worth it for New Years Eve. The memories we have made, and the impeccable service we received from everyone at Stanbrook start to finish means that the venue will remain a special place that we and our guests will definitely return to year on year for other special occasions and events. Honestly for anyone booking a wedding this is a must see venue in the UK!

We had the most amazing day and we have Stanbrook and yourself to thank for that.
A number of our guests said it was the best wedding venue they had ever been too and I’m sure will be booking for afternoon teas and weekends away soon!

We were staying, along with several other family members for 2 nights with the wedding on the Saturday. From the moment we walked into reception everything was faultless. The standard of the hotel, its bedrooms and public spaces were absolutely first class. I doubt the staff could have been any more attentive to every detail of the stay. The staff, too many to mention where outstanding. Tom the wedding host, what a polite, affable, knowledgeable and efficient young man. Nothing was too much trouble for him and his team. Rolande, one of the waiters, who made a special effort to keep a permanently full glass of Prosecco in front of me and several other friends. Daniel the breakfast restaurant manager who presided over his fiefdom with precision and produced an outstanding service from his staff. The Portuguese (not Spanish) barman was an act that should be on the stage such was his humour and ability remembering what everyone was drinking each time we visited the bar (in the end we stopped visiting and just stayed in there)! The food provided by the Abbey was of the highest standard. The wedding breakfast had one of the tastiest soups I have ever tried followed by beef that simply melted in the mouth. Not only this but special child friendly meals were also provided for the children present. The evening fare of pulled pork was simple but very tasty. Finally Jane on reception who is the face of Stanbrook and who you deal with on arrival and departure and could not have been friendlier.
Thank you Stanbrook for giving my family memories that will last a lifetime.
If anyone is looking for a wedding venue then this one gets 5 stars from me.

After visiting chateau Rhianfa in Anglesey we were recommended this hotel in the same group. The staff were great, our room 3 cells made into a bedroom was very comfortable! The building is beautiful with some lovely quirky rooms, just explore! The evening meal and breakfast were also of a very good high standard. We were delighted with our visit and would not hesitate to return and if you thinking of having a wedding held in the abbey it's a beautiful venue!
Wedding Anniversary Upgrade
By Stephen, on 15 Jun 2015
We stayed at this hotel overnight on our anniversary, were lucky to get an upgrade and had a lovely time. We were able to wander round this beautiful place, and imagine what it was like when the nuns were there. It was touching to see their plaques on the wall of the abbey for the nuns who had died there. Staff were very friendly and helpful, specially worth a mention was the young man from Powick who was researching cocktails and found time to chat about the history of the place. I know the addition of a modern George's bar is not to everyone's taste, we found it refreshing in comparison to the old abbey - they marry together very well. Dinner was of a good standard, and breakfast full and fresh. Another day there would have suited us well!

Stayed here with my partner looking for a potential wedding venue, they have just refurbed it, it had clearly had a lot of money spent on it.
Staff are really friendly, rooms are very comfy and fresh, food is really really good, we had a 3 course meal on the evening.
The place itself is so beautiful, the chapel where you get married is amazing!
Would recommend to anyone to stay here.

I had the pleasure of staying here over the past couple of days and this place is truly beautiful, quirky and unique. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The food is gorgeous and the rooms are beautiful. I really didn't want to leave. Now I need to find an excuse to go back!
Pefect party venue
By Peter R, on 12 May 2015
We went there for a party celebrating its opening, it's a really good place to party or get married in.
Our room 101 was tucked away up a staircase nice & lovely & quiet. Dinner & breakfast were fine we were only there for one night, shame. Only reservation no swimming pool but all facilities were fine as were the staff.
