Perfect Wedding venue

We had the best day for our wedding. Huge thanks to Astley bank. Couldn't ask for better staff. They were so helpful and made us feel like nothing was to much to ask. The function rooms and the gardens are perfect for that stunning wedding setting. The bridal suite made me feel like royalty. The food is top notch. I was the happiest bride in the world.

What an excellent venue!

We had our day 25/2/2023. We booked the winter wedding package and Veronica was our wedding coordinator. From start to finish Veronica and the team were welcoming, organised and informative. Veronica is an expert in coordination and made sure everything was perfect in the lead up to and on the day.
The food is exquisite and all the guests commented on how they enjoyed the meal. The whole staff team were friendly and professional and nothing was too much trouble for them. The bridal suite is stunning and our pictures are incredible in every part of the Manor House.
The boudoir is the perfect place to get ready on your day, my stylist and mua loved the space.
If your looking for an intimate venue so you can really spend time with your guests, enjoy incredible food and be cared for throughout so not hesitate to book Astley Bank

Seamless & Flawless

We had our wedding on 20th September at the this beautiful venue.
From the initial contact to the actual day the service has been excellent, smooth and very friendly whilst totally professional.
The event was seamless and flawless with the staff providing top class service in an wonderful hotel.
Everything from the rooms to the personal service and delightful staff were just perfect. The whole feeling from start to finish was that "nothing is too much trouble".
The food was incredible and we had some quite fussy guests lol....
Special thanks to vicky our planner and John the night porter who was so very lovely and helpful.
Massive thanks to you all

What a fantastic day we had

Where do i begin? Astley Bank recently held our Wedding and what a fantastic day we had. We had family travel from across the country, and the team at Astley Bank made them feel welcome from arrival. Nothing was ever any trouble, and all of our guests have said how amazing the venue looked, and was. The team are a huge credit to the venue, and we couldn't have asked for more. The food was 10/10, the organisation was amazing, it was clean and fresh, and nobody could have done anymore for us. It was a perfect day and we are so so grateful that we had such a great team to share it with. 100% recommend Astley Bank. We can't wait to share our anniversary with the team who made our day so special.’

Our Wedding 23.11.19

We had our wedding at Astley Bank Hotel on 23.11.19 and it was just perfect. The venue, staff, hotel grounds, food, service, just everything was fantastic.

Our guests comments were all lovely about the venue, with many saying how the wedding breakfast was the best food they've ever had at a wedding, so compliments to the chef and kitchen staff! They all said how beautiful Astley Bank was, which was the main reason we chose this venue for our wedding.

A big thank you goes to Vicki. Nothing was ever too much trouble for her and she was always on hand with any requests or queries we had throughout our wedding journey. She is a true asset to Astley Bank, so thank you so much Vicki!

All the staff were polite, helpful and professional. The food again was outstanding, all fresh and well presented. We had our ceremony at Astley Bank and the way all the staff transformed the room so quickly and efficiently was amazing. The room for the wedding breakfast looked lovely.

I can not fault anything about our special day, everything was quite simply perfect. So, thank you all for making our day so special and memorable.

Love Mr & Mrs Baird xxx

Excellent hotel and amazing wedding venue

Excellent hotel and amazing wedding venue. So pleased we picked here for our ceremony and evening celebrations. The staff were all extremely helpful and couldn’t do enough for us or our guests. Vikki the wedding coordinator was also a lovely person to work with. She made sure everything was perfect and nothing was too much trouble for her. The food was out of this word, all we got were compliments on it. No bad words received about anything. I would highly recommend the hotel for any function, meal or a overnight stay. My day was perfect and it’s all thanks to Astley Bank
