Perfect wedding day

We got married here at the end of August and I have to say I wouldn't recommend any where else.

From the minute we met Joanne the wedding coordinator we knew the burlington was The one for us. Joanne is a real credit to the Burlington and is always on hand if you need anything no matter how small.

The hotel is located perfectly near the Leas with a stunning sea view for the perfect pictures.

All the staff are soo welcoming. The food is great and we couldn't have asked for a better day.

If you want a wedding at a venue next to the sea with a hotel and wedding coordinator with your best interests at heart I wouldn't go anywhere else but the Burlington

5 stars all day long

The best day of our lives!!!

My husband and I got married in August this year at the Burlington hotel and all I can say is WOW!!!! The Burlington is not only stunningly beautiful, it has the most wonderful staff who done everything they could to make our day as magical as it was. The hotel- beautiful hotel on beautiful grounds. Our hotel room was to die for, 4 poster bed, freestanding bath, fresh flowers, chocolate and fruit. It was absolutely gorgeous. The ceremony- the ceremony room was beautiful, out of the way from other guests and perfect size to fit our nearest and dearest in, without it being too big and empty looking. The staff- the staff are what made our wedding so special and stress free. They were there every step of the way to help guide and support us. If we needed a hand someone was there within seconds. A special mention to Joanne who, without doubt is the most professional, friendly and warm hearted person myself and my husband could have wished for to help us through the whole process. All in all the Burlington hotel is by far the most perfect venue for a wedding. I have, and will continue to recommend to all I speak to.

After searching through several wedding reception venues for our daughter and son in law to be, and getting very few positive reply's to our telephone calls and emails we decided to speak to Joanne the events manage at the Burlington Hotel. We where not the easiest of clients to please because we did not want a standard package but Joanne was amazing. The wedding reception was tailored to our every want and need. The food for the wedding breakfast and the buffet was excellent as was the service. I would like to mention and thank Andy the restaurant manager for his very professional service and his very well trained efficient staff who carried out their duties seamlessly. The bar manager was extremely efficient and kept no one waiting. We had a wonderful Toast Master in Trevor Smith who kept everything flowing with his very professional whit, charm and organization skill, he worked with Joanne to ensure that we all had a perfect day. The photographer we used was Albane from Sandgate who was recommended by the Burlington and was perfect and worked seamlessly throughout the day from 10am in the morning at our house through to the church service and on to late evening. At the end of the evening we retired to very comfortable refurbished rooms with great bathrooms and every need was catered for. All in all we would like to congratulate and thank the Burlington Hotel and its wonderful staff for a perfect day and the best wedding reception we have ever attended. This was not only our opinion but was repeated by several of the guests.

Everything was amazing!

Where do I start?
Everything was amazing!
The room was beautiful, Joanne was fantastic, the ceremony was stunning and the food was delicious!
Every staff member worked incredibly hard to make our day so special. It all ran so smoothly and the atmosphere was incredible!
I would do it all again if we could! I'm so sad it's over but we will definitely be returning for our Anniversary and coming for dinner and parties before then!
Thank you to all the staff at The Burlington! Xxx

Best day of our lives!

What can we say "it was the best day of our lives'.
Honestly, the venue, the staff, our wedding planner Joanne were all lovely.
The Hotel catered for our wedding ceremony, our family and friends staying and we couldn't fault anything.
The food was amazing, and the rooms were cosy with spacious sized beds and beautiful decor.
We will always be happy we chose The Burlington Hotel to have our wedding. X

We got married here and couldn't fault the service right from the very beginning to the very end. Joanna was fantastic and her attention to detail was amazing ensuring a smooth, calm running to the day. Nothing was too much trouble, herself and all the staff where great. As for the food, this was excellent and catered for my extreme dietary needs, not to mention the quality and quantity. I would whole heartily recommend The Burlington to anyone getting married.

Thank you!

My husband and I were married at the Burlington hotel mid April and we and our guests had a fantastic day and stay thereafter. The rooms were immaculately clean and tidy, the staff, from the minute our first guest arrived until we all left, went above and beyond for us all and nothing was too much trouble. Joanne ensured our big day went without a hitch and I would recommend getting married here to anyone. The food was exquisite. We had guests with quite complex dietary requirements and these were catered for to the highest standard. We received many positive comments on the food served during our wedding breakfast. I hope that we get the opportunity to visit and stay at the Burlington hotel again however in the interim I extend my thanks and gratitude to all of the staff, cannot recommend highly enough.
