Best Day
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs F, on 30 Apr 2010

We have just got back from our honeymoon and we had an amazing wedding day and were so pleased with the efforts of all the staff at Goodwood Park Hotel. Without their superb planning and organisation skills and the wonderful setting of Goodwood it would not of been the great day it turned out to be. The feedback we received from family and friends was that it was the best wedding they had been to.

Our wedding day was absoultly fantastic one of the best day's in our lives so far. The staff were great the day was just perfect. Everyone has commented on the food and how tasty it was. We couldn't fault it in anyway at all even if we wanted to it, it was just simply the best. We really did have such a lovely day.

Our wedding day was fantastic, all your hard work beforehand paid off. Everything run smoothly and all the staff on the day were brilliant in particular the young lady, whose name I cant remember, who was in charge of our wedding on the day. All our guests were very impressed with the hotel and the service they received. A big thank you for arranging such a super day for us!!! Best wishes to you and a very happy new year!

Spot On
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs U, on 03 Dec 2009

Many thanks for all your help and hard work to help make our wedding day on Saturday a perfect day. We had the best day and everything at the hotel was absolutely spot on. Many of our guests were very complimentary about the delicious food at the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet was equally delicious. It took great effort on behalf of all your staff to ensure that the meals came out promptly and hot! Please thank the chefs for us. Tushar did an absolutely great job. Please pass on our grateful thanks to him too. Goodwood Hotel was just the best choice for our reception and I will not hesitate to recommend it in the future. I am sure our guests will also be doing the same. Many thanks yet again, Mr & Mrs U!!

Hi When we were looking for potential wedding venues it was almost pure luck that we stumbled across Goodwood Park Hotel we found it one Saturday afternoon whilst having a drive through the countryside. We called into the hotel on the off-chance, and from the moment that we first walked through the door the staff were brilliant. Although we did not have an appointment the staff were able to show us around the hotel and its facilities. Admittedly, we did initially have some concerns as to whether your predecessor would be able to meet our expectations, but from the moment which you became our wedding coordinator our concerns completely vanished. You played an important role in ensuring that our wedding was a huge success. You embraced our ideas and wishes, and your careful and accurate planning ensured that the special day went so smoothly. Thank you for your help and a**tance it is very much appreciated. Justine, was brilliant too. She was always there to offer a**tance, but was never noticeable. Justine, although not part of the initial planning of the wedding, knew every aspect of our ideas and wishes and ensured that these happened on the day. Can you extend our thanks to Justine as well. We feel that the hotel and its grounds are the perfect venue for a wedding. The style, size and arrangement of the function rooms are brilliant and matched our requirements precisely. The wedding day was a huge success and exceeded our expectations. The catering was brilliant – our Toastmaster commented that it was the best wedding breakfast that he had ever had!. The evening reception was equally good, and the band and the Grooveybooth performed brilliantly. Once our feet have touched the ground, I shall forward both yourself and Justine a little something as a token of our appreciation for your efforts and help in organising our special day. As a final wedding celebration we plus our closest friends from the wedding will be heading back to Goodwood to experience the final seasons day of horseracing. We have also commented that we will spend each wedding anniversary at the hotel. Once I have sorted the photographs I shall send you a link so that you are able to view them. Many thanks again

We have just come back from a wonderful honeymoon in Orlando. We did want to contact you anyway to say thank you for everything that you did to make our wedding day so special. We would also like to thank Owen in particular who we thought was brilliant, as well as all the other staff who were there on the day and did a wonderful job. We couldn''t of asked for a better service.

Our other sister went into labour the next morning & everyone was great even arranging for rooms to be kept on after checkout. The food was delicious & piping hot. No-one was forgotton & the kids meals were huge! All in all the goodwood park hotel & its staff made our day. Thank you very much!

Our Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs H, on 03 Dec 2009

The wedding was fantastic and your help help in the build up was particularly brilliant. It was a nice touch by you to come and say hello before the ceremony. Many thanks to you in particular. We were really happy with how every things went and everyone really enjoyed the day. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The Brazilian guy was extremely helpful in helping to time the aisle entrances and had a great rapport with the guests. All in all we had a dream wedding. We would not hesitate to recommend the Goodwood Park Hotel for weddings and we hope to visit again ourselves as soon as possible. We didn''t leave the hotel until the next evening after enjoying breakfast, the leisure facilities and everything on the lunch menu!!! Many thanks again for all your help.
