No one could do enough for us
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Cooper, on 25 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 04 Aug 2018

Well where do I start ? I can't begin to put into words how amazing this venue is. Not only is the setting absolutely out of this world, It's the team of people that work there that make it extra special. No one could do enough for us they truly make it a day to remember ! I would like to give a special thank you to Sharon who made our wedding planning so stress less and easy and was at the end of the phone any time we needed right up to the big day and John who was on hand from the moment we stepped Into the venue on the Friday right up to the Sunday helping us as much as he could and going above and beyond, not to mention making us laugh from start to finish. We truly are grateful to all of the staff at the Coniston and thank you for making our day extra special. I can honestly say our day would not have been as brilliant anywhere else.

Most Stunning Venue
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Bolton, on 18 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Jun 2018

The Coniston Hotel made the most stunning venue to get married in, with its beautiful scenery and decor. The staff made it even better!!! From booking our wedding two years ago - right up to our big day, Sharon, Sophie and Kristina was on hand to answer our 100s of questions ensuring our planning ran smoothly. On the day, Sharon was incredible. So organised, helpful and friendly which made us and our guests feel happy and comfortable. We are so grateful to everyone at the hotel for working so hard to make our day as PERFECT as it was. We had the most amazing day and will be making an annual visit to celebrate our anniversaries we am sure! Thanks

Exactly what we wished for
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Baeza, on 18 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Jun 2018

I just wanted to email on behalf of myself and James to say a massive thank you for hosting our wedding at your beautiful hotel on Friday 15th June. It truly was a perfect day and exactly what we wished for. All the staff throughout the hotel were so helpful and pleasant with us and to all our guests especially the waiters and waitresses at our wedding breakfast who were all superstars! Can I make a special thank you to you Sophie for helping everything run so smoothly – we appreciate how much effort must have gone on behind the scenes to dress the rooms and coordinate everything. As a project coordinator, myself I understand that the little things make such a big difference! The venue is beautiful, the food was delicious and we will be recommending it to everyone we meet!

Above and Beyond
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Gee, on 18 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 12 May 2018

"We've still not come down to earth from how amazing our Wedding Day was and so much of that was down to the hard work, from all the staff at Coniston! They went above and beyond to make sure we had the perfect day. They helped me make one of my dreams come true, having my Dad there at my wedding and were so accommodating to our needs. It is a beautiful wedding venue with the kindest and caring staff and we plan to go back every year to celebrate our anniversary in a place we love!"

Most Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Parker, on 18 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 04 May 2018

Id just like to say a massive Thankyou for helping me create the most perfect day! Sophie was amazing throughout the whole process, she was always there if I had questions or needed a catch up to go through everything. The whole team went above and beyond for me and nick. We loved every second of our day and would come back and do it again in a heart beat. The staff who worked on the bar/serving food were all so polite and helpful too they couldn’t do enough for me and my guests. The coniston truly is the most beautiful place! Amazing hotel, amazing views and amazing staff. Thankyou all!

Perfect, just perfect
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Raistrick, on 18 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Apr 2018

Where do I start?! ‘Perfect, just perfect is the only way I can describe our wedding day. From the day we reserved the date right up to us leaving the morning after, the team couldn’t do enough to help us. Sharon was there to give her words of wisdom in the planning stages, Sophie was there to calm, guide and reassure throughout the day. The venue looked incredible and they helped us to create our dream! It was just perfect!’ Thank you SO much!

Fantastic Wedding Team
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Holt, on 18 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 30 Mar 2018

We would love to thank the Coniston Hotel and their fantastic wedding team Krystina, Sophie and Sharon for hosting our wedding! Our big day was perfect and went so smoothly, we didn't have to worry about a thing, it was a day we will always remember. As soon as we visited the Coniston Hotel during our wedding venue search we immediately fell in love with it; the grounds are stunning, the hotel itself is beautiful and the staff were incredibly friendly. The wedding team were very professional throughout our wedding planning journey and made everything easy for us, they were always on hand for any questions we had. The big day was brilliant and the Coniston team really put us both at ease by being in control of all the details. The food was lovely and the dinner service faultless, we couldn't have asked more from the staff. All of our guests loved the venue, the food and the execution of the day, we received only positive comments from them. Overall it was a complete success and and couldn't have been better. We would absolutely recommend the Coniston Hotel for a wedding venue, not just because of the stunning hotel and location, but because of the professionalism and passion of the entire team. Thanks for making our day truly unforgettable!

Magical Location
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Shaw, on 17 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 25 Mar 2018

The Coniston Hotel was the absolutley magical location of our sunny, spring wedding . Every single detail was catered for and cared whole-heartedly about by the wonderful Sharon, Sophie and Krystina, who make you feel like yours is the only wedding that they`re working on (despite the hundreds they must manage) Special mention has to go to every single member of staff who worked during our special day as nothing was too much trouble, even smuggling the bride soft drinks for our toasts to help keep our pregnancy secret until the bug reveal in the grooms speech. We wish that we could live our day all over again. We wouldn’t change a single thing and we highly recommend ths beautiful venue and its excellent staff.

The day itself could not have run smoother
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Durkin, on 17 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 11 Mar 2018

"We came to a Wedding open day at The Coniston Hotel with no intention of booking our wedding, however upon seeing the venue, the rooms and meeting the wonderful staff we were sold. We booked our wedding there and then. From the very outset every possible question we had was answered and no request was too large or small. We booked our wedding almost a year to the date and throughout that year we had numerous meetings, a menu tasting and lots of email contact with the Wedding Team. Absolutely everything was thought of! The day itself could not have run smoother. Staff were there to meet with you on the morning of the wedding to make sure you had everything you need and go through all the details of the ceremony with both bride, groom and all wedding party involved. As we had decided to bring our own centrepieces and decor for the table there was a nervousness that the room might not look quite how you had imagined; we were not disappointed. Our vision was captured perfectly. The food, wine and staff throughout the day and night were absolutely flawless! And that scenery! The breathtaking views of the lake added that extra special little touch to an already beautiful venue. As you can imagine our photographs are spectacular. We could not have asked for a more perfect wedding day and wish we could do it all over again!"

We had a fantastic day
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Cook, on 17 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 18 Feb 2018

We just wanted to thank you for everything you did and helped us with in the lead up to our wedding and of course on the day itself! We had a fantastic day, the ceremony was great, the meal was lovely and your staff were so helpful.

An incredible day for everyone involved
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs McMahon, on 17 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Feb 2018

I just wanted to drop you a line to say thankyou so, so much for making our wedding day such an incredible day for everyone involved. After speaking to our guests, there wasn't a poor word to be heard about any part of the weekend. Everybody was impressed with the food, hospitality of the staff, the venue and DJ. Vinny and I really couldn't have hoped for a better day. It really was perfect from start to finish. Massive credit to all of the staff at The Coniston, who went above and beyond all of our expectations. We cannot wait to return sometime soon, with our new addition, and say hi to everyone again. We are still on cloud 9 and don't want to come back down yet.. Keep up the good work and thanks again.

Thank you so much
Venue Service

By Emma & Hannah, on 17 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 11 Feb 2018

Hi Krystina Sophie and Sharon, I just wanted to say thank you for all that you did in helping us to organise our wedding, and Krystina, for all that you did on the day to make sure everything ran smoothly. We had a fantastic time and that is in no small part thanks to your efforts. You were always so quick to respond to our questions beforehand and absolutely everything was perfect on Sunday - thank you so much! I'm sure we'll see you again soon, but definitely for our first anniversary next year. Thanks :)
