The Hoste with the MOST!
Our day ran so smoothly and just perfect! All of our guests have commented on how great the service and food was.
We actually made a weekend of it and hosted a buffet on the Friday evening too which was also incredibly good!
The whole team are just fantastic and make you feel so welcome! We must give a special thank you to Dave the night porter too! Who looked after us later on and again nothing. Was too much trouble! We cannot wait to come back as we feel The Hoste Arms are now our lifelong friends!
We honestly cannot recommend this place enough… if you haven’t already, go and check it out!
Thank you for everything Jade and the team,
From a very happy and extremely grateful,
Mr and Mrs Sharman xx
A wonderful experience at the Hoste!
We had the perfect day!
From our first visit and leading up to the day, Jade and Lisa were great; listening to our plans, answering questions and making suggestions to help with planning our day.
We fell in love with the light airy Garden Room on our first visit and though it was winter we could see how lovely the Walled Garden would be for our ceremony and guests to enjoy on our day.
We decorated and set up the Garden Room the afternoon before and Jade and Lisa were so welcoming and on hand to help with all the details. The day itself was managed perfectly by Jade, Lisa and their team from start to finish.
Our guests all had a lovely day, many complimenting the food and venue. The majority of our friends and family are from Norfolk and though many of them had visited The Hoste previously, many hadn't realised there was a dedicated and separate event space.
Thanks again to Jade, Lisa and they're brilliant team for such a fantastic day, we only wish we could do it all again!
Small but perfect wedding
Jade was amazing and planned our day to perfection. Starting with drinks and snacks for the group before the ceremony, we had an area of the hotel bar set aside for us and a designated bar man to look after us. Charles was a superstar and nothing was too much trouble for him, including getting ice cream and straws for our toddler!
Jade was brilliant at getting hubby to the registrar on time and coordinating the group so we were all where we should be at the right time!
From start to finish we felt properly looked after, nothing was too much trouble for anybody at The Hoste.
Everything went perfectly, the food was amazing, even the fussiest eaters said that they really enjoyed the food.
We had the whole of The Vine House for our party and this worked so well. After we had finished eating , drinking and dancing we went back there and could relax in our own area.
If I could go back and do the day again I would do much so we are planning an anniversary trip next year!
Amazing venue discovery
Jade, the events manager, was super helpful and organised in the lead up to the wedding and perfect on the day too - she clearly knows her stuff!
Your room for the day is separate from the main restaurants etc, and is a beautiful space - we got married on a rainy November day and it still felt bright (plus the in built fairy lights made it feel very cosy after dark).
Food and drink was plentiful and all delicious - a menu tasting is included in your price. The pricing also felt reasonable (especially out of season).
Overall, everything was exactly how we imagined our special day to be, everyone was so friendly and our guests had the best time too.
Couldn’t recommend it enough
Perfect Autumn Wedding
From our very first contact with the Events Planner, Jade, we felt well looked after and well-prepared for our big day.
As soon as we arrived at the venue to set up the day before the wedding, we were met with extremely helpful, courteous and considerate staff who made us feel welcome.
As anyone has ever planned a wedding would understand, there are a 101 thing which could go wrong on the day. However Jade and her team went above and beyond to ensure that our day went smoothly and that we and our guests had the best possible time.
We can honestly say that our wedding was everything we could have hoped for. We have had so many wonderful comments from our guests telling us it was one of the best weddings they had been to.
Thank you for helping to make our wedding day a spectacular and enjoyable experience that we will remember for the rest of our lives.
We cannot recommend this venue highly enough for those who want to make their big day a special affair to remember.
Everything we could have wish for and more!
We would not hesitate to recommend The Hoste as a wedding venue. Jade, the wedding planner, was always on hand throughout the planning process and her and the team ensured that the day was perfect! Jade's knowledge and experience was invaluable and took the stress away. The food also went down great with the guests. We could not have wished for anything more! Thank you again for the best day, Saj and Katherine
Our wonderful wedding day
Thank you so much for making our day so special. We’ll see you next year for our anniversary!
Fantastic Wedding Weekend!
Our Perfect Wedding Day at The Hoste !
From the very beginning we felt that Jade understood us as a couple, she took time to understand what was important to us and she understood exactly how we wanted our wedding day to be - we cannot thank her enough as the day was everything we had hoped for.
After our wedding, we have received rave reviews from our guests too! All complimenting the excellent food and service they experienced on the day.
Without question or hesitation, we would recommend The Hoste to anyone wishing to get married in North Norfolk. The whole day was perfect and we would do it all again in exactly the same way.
Thank you to Jade and the whole team at The Hoste - you are awesome!
Whilst Jade was leading the planning and the whole event, all the team at The Hoste was superb. I would totally recommend The Hoste and Jade to host your wedding reception. We had the best afternoon/evening we could have ever imagined. Thanks Jade. X
Our Amazing Day at The Hoste.
My guest commented on how well the day flowed, and how delicious the food was…
Jade even brought my breakfast up to me whilst getting ready with my bridal party.
We arrived the day before our wedding, was able to set up, go through final plans and music, the team were so friendly and helpful whenever we needed them.
The location of The Hoste within a beautiful village meant we got some wonderful photos too.
Can’t recommend The Hoste enough with the Lovely Jade.
Fantastic wedding reception
First of all, the venue itself is absolutely beautiful, with a large conservatory room and a garden out the back which is a lovely suntrap and we had it all to ourselves so it was perfect for our drinks reception.
As for the wedding reception, the events manager, Jade, was absolutely brilliant every step of the way, right from our very first telephone call right through to the day itself. I cannot thank her enough! She was great at responding to all of my emails asking a million and one questions, she was very accommodating of all our requests, particularly as we wanted to have a ceilidh band for the evening! She was extremely thorough and her attention to detail made me know I was in safe hands! She really knows her stuff! This just made the whole process of planning the reception so easy and took a lot of the stress off me as the bride. The whole day ran smoothly like clockwork from our arrival for the drinks reception and canapés, dinner service for the wedding breakfast, clearing down the tables to make space for the band and dancing and lastly our ‘midnight snack’ at the end of the night, which all of our guests absolutely loved! Thank you Jade and to all your team!
Martin was also a great help coordinating all the room bookings for our guests who all commented on how lovely their rooms were and that they all felt thoroughly spoilt, so thank you very much!
We stayed in room 57 in the Vine House for the wedding night and I also stayed there the night before the wedding. The room is beautiful with a lovely big freestanding bath.
I would definitely recommend The Hoste for anyone thinking of having their wedding there. It was a magical day we will never forget and thank you to everyone involved in making it so special!
Our special day at The Hoste
When our day finally came around in 2021 it was absolutely perfect. Our ceremony was held at the local church, and our reception in the beautiful Garden Room. As a wedding party, we were truly looked after, nothing was too much trouble. Jade (The Events Manager) was a true professional, calm under pressure, and ensured we did not need to worry about anything across the day. Liaising with our suppliers, and checking in with us throughout the day.
The church being only a short distance away from the Hoste enabled us as a wedding party and our guests to walk across to the church. Once back at the Hoste our drinks reception was held in the courtyard in the Autumn sunshine. Followed by our reception in the Garden Room, the light, bright and airy room was the perfect backdrop. Space for all of our guests, our band, and completley flexible with our chosen theme and decor.
We received so many compliments on The Hoste as a wedding venue, the day ran so smoothly and we loved that everything was in one place for our guests. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
