Amazing venue and incredible staff - Wedding April 2022

We booked Stanley house for our wedding back in 2018 and we instantly loved the whole feel of the venue and we knew from that moment on it was a special place and would hold a lot of memories for us..
I honestly couldn’t speak any more highly of Stanley house as a wedding venue, but more importantly the staff, they are a special kind of people and go above and beyond to help you out and make your experience there that little bit more special.
We were supposed to get married in May 2020, but lockdown had other ideas and so we eventually got our day on the 16th April 2022, and it was well and truly worth the wait.
Natalie, well Natalie our wedding coordinator has become my new best friend, and is the nicest person you’ll ever meet. Honestly this lady has been incredible from the moment we met. She went above and beyond for us in all the situations we were faced with and made the whole experience an unforgettable one. A moment I will never forget was on our wedding day she was the first person to greet us as we got out of the car, to later on be told that she was actually supposed to be off on annual leave as her Dad was over to visit from abroad, this shows how much of a lovely person she is, and how committed and dedicated she is to her job, and this will always mean a lot to us Natalie. There are too many instances I could mention where Natalie went above and beyond, but please know we will always be thankful. Through the lockdowns we stayed in touch via emails and we kept each other’s spirits up when things weren’t exactly great, so I’ll always be grateful for that. Natalie is an absolute credit to Stanley house and I can’t speak any more highly of her. Whenever I phoned her/emailed her I instantly felt at ease and I can hand on heart say I never ever felt stressed out, I always knew everything was in hand, and that’s the kind of wedding coordinator everyone needs. So all that’s left to say is thank you.
Joe, well Joe.. What can we say other than fantastic. He was absolutely brilliant, we had plenty of laughs and I knew at our meeting a couple of days before the wedding we were going to have a blast on the day with him, you really made our day Joe! He was our go to person on our day and he excelled in everything. We had guests coming up to us asking for his name as they said they wanted to go and personally thank him for all that he did for us. Anything we wanted doing he was there to just sort it, so thank you Joe for all of your efforts, you really are a credit to the team.
Thank you Joe.
The food was incredible, faultless and we will certainly be back to sample more of the food! The cheesecake on our wedding day was unreal. The cleanliness of the whole hotel is second to none, the rooms were spotless and we had the most amazing stay as did all of our guests.
So all in all a big thank you to all of the chefs, the bar staff, the reception staff, the cleaners and all the people behind the scenes who made our day what it was, there are too many people to thank individually but please know we are very grateful for what you did.
It was simply fantastic and we couldn’t have dreamt of a better place to get married.
We will be back for sure and I for sure have already told Natalie that I will be staying in touch with my emails!!
Anyone who is thinking about booking a wedding with them you honestly won’t regret it.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Steph and Ciaran Large.

Best wedding venue in the North West

We had the wedding reception of our dreams at Stanley House Hotel at Easter. The day was exactly how we had imagined thanks to the dedicated wedding team. All the stress was taken away from myself and it was organised yet relaxed throughout the whole planning process and the day it’s self. Natalie who we booked the wedding with was amazing, Maddison our wedding planner was always at hand and super excited for us and the hosts Josh and Joe were absolutely brilliant and so attentive. We felt like a king and queen for the day and all our guests enjoyed the amazing food, gorgeous venue and stunning views. The breakfast and spa the following day just finished it off perfectly. We would highly recommend having your big day here and we look forward to coming back for our wedding anniversary ❤️.

Day was absolutely amazing! Staff were so attentive. Megan was amazing throughout the planning and was lovely to see a familiar face on the day. Gareth on the day was outstanding - nothing too much of an issue for him. Such a perfect day, amazing food, decor, everything

We're biased but... best wedding ever.

It'll be the stunning venue that will catch your eye - beautifully landscaped grounds, stunning views, incredible classic architecture with an appealing modern internal twist... But it is the team that make Stanley House.

Supportive in the build-up, they really pulled it out of the bag on the day - they were absolutely everywhere, in total control without ourselves or our guests noticing they were there. Subtle, professional service and never missed a trick

Having returned to the venue since, the team that looked after us have made us feel like lifelong friends. Without doubt, we will be back on every wedding anniversary!

Myself and my husband fell in love with Stanley house upon our initial visit and we instantly knew that this was our chosen wedding venue. It is a lovely building with beautiful features and surroundings. The staff are very friendly, professional and cannot do enough to help to ensure everything is perfect. Our day was planned to perfection with the help of Maddison and ran smoothly from start to finish with the help of Joe and the rest of his team. The bedrooms were all immaculate and beautifully presented. There is a good variety of food which is suitable for various dietary requirements and tastes amazing.
We received many compliments from our guests about the hotel and its location as well as comments on the helpfulness and friendliness of all of the staff who was part of our day.

Simply the best!

I wish I could give more than 5 stars!

We have recently got married here and it was honestly the best day of our lives. Everything from start to finish was absolutely incredible, nothing was ever too much for the staff or the venue. Many of our guests commented on the fantastic service throughout our day and throughout our stay. Due to Covid - this was the 3rd time we've had a wedding date set at the venue, each and every time Stanley House have been professional, welcoming, understanding and made us feel at complete ease. I first met my wedding co-ordinator Maddison in 2018 and I knew straight away, the venue was right for us. Maddisons caring and welcoming nature made it feel like we were genuinely cared about and it started our wedding planning process very well. She kept me up to date with everything every step of the way including on our wedding day.
I felt like an extremely calm bride on my wedding day and this was down to feeling completely comfortable with how the day was going to run in their hands.
Stanley House will always be an extremely special place to us, it's just simply spectacular, the grounds, the manor house, the accommodation, the spa...everything.
I would definitely recommend this venue, I'm already looking forward to going back.

Exceeded our expectations

Natalie and I would like to thank you, Brittany and Maddison for all your help in planning and organising our wedding at Stanley house. We had a perfect day and everything exceeded our expectations, the only sad thing is that it is all over!
Also please could you thank Joe and Megan for their help on the day, Joe was very reassuring after our meeting on the Thursday when we were in a last minute panic and they both helped us massively throughout the day!

Perfect

We got married here last month and I have to say it was the most wonderful day of our lives! Everything from start to finish was just perfect. Everyone commented on how calm I was from the moment we booked our date and this was partly down to choosing Stanley house as my venue. Emma and the rest of the fantastic team of staff thought of everything, helped with everything and really did go above and beyond to make sure our day was just perfect. The suppliers they work with again were superb. The Flower Shop & Brides Helper are two to mention! The day was perfect from start to finish and I could not recommend Stanley House enough! Full five stars for venue, staff, accommodation, food….the list could go on! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Mr & Mrs Gregory.
