By Kier, on 02 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Sep 2019

Had my daughter's wedding breakfast (approx 100 seated people) and evening reception (approx 150 people) her. Top class food and hospitality, including the level of service provided. All staff were most helpful and friendly, Emma the wedding event manager could not be more helpful and accommodating with all the arrangements for a very enjoyable and successful event for my daughter and son in law. My wife and I also stayed overnight at the hotel after the wedding reception. We found our room comfortable and having plenty of space to relax. Managed to get a good night's sleep as the bed was very comfortable. All room facilities were well presented. The hotel as a whole has a good atmosphere, with plenty of communal areas to relax, also as well as a restaurant there is a bar available to sit and enjoy good menu of bar meals. I have no hesitation in recommending The Holt for a wedding reception or overnight stays.

We would recommend this hotel very highly.

We had our wedding reception here which was an amazing day. From planning through to the day itself, Emma the Sales Manager, could not have done anything more to make the day special for us. All of the staff were incredibly friendly and professional, with the food being amazing and we have received so many comments regarding this. The character of the building is why we originally chose this venue, and the Blenheim Suite where we stayed overnight is very special. We would recommend this hotel very highly.

Had 20 rooms for the weekend for our daughters wedding. The staff were outstanding. Emma, Petr and Sean couldn't do enough for us. Made all of our guests so welcome. They were absolutely outstanding with their management of our function. The chefs And their serving team, prepared and served a 3 course meal for 90 guests and not one single complaint except the size of the portions, which were massive!! The food was absolutely 5 star and hot and every table got exactly what they ordered. From the moment we arrived until we left on the Sunday, the whole experience was phenomenal. Cannot recommend this place enough. A beautiful old coaching house with so much character.

We had our wedding at The Holt recently and were very pleased we chose the venue. The sales manager, Emma, was friendly and organised from the day of first meeting to the wedding itself. In planning the wedding, email communications were great with all questions answered along the way. The main function room was renovated fairly recently, and it was lovely. The gardens also looked great, albeit too cold to use them much on our wedding day. The food was delicious and guests gave many positive comments. We felt the wedding package offered good value, especially compared to other venues locally. Emma was on hand throughout the day, ensuring everything ran smoothly. Other staff were friendly and helpful also.

We had an incredible wedding ceremony and lunch at The Holt Hotel! The day was managed to perfection by Petr and his team who made our day so very special. We had a beautiful lunch following the civil ceremony, food was delicious and what a wonderful spread of deserts for our guests to choose from. Thanks to all of the team for putting big smiles on our faces and making our day memorable. The sun even came out for us to have some photos in the hotels beautiful grounds.

Thank you for making our wedding day so special.

My family and I attended our friend’s wedding on the 23rd Feb. I cannot imagine anywhere putting on a wedding better than this. Nice place for such an event and you also managed good weather for the occasion. The wedding breakfast was first class as was everything else. Well done! Gerald Parker and family

Absolutely brilliant
