Wedding May 2022

We got married here yesterday having booked it about 12 months ago. Soraya was absolutely brilliant - very knowledgeable, helpful and experienced. The venue itself is very comfortable, rooms are a nice size and they cater well for couples/families.

The team were great in accommodating what we wanted for our wedding, especially as it was quite non-traditional. They were helpful in making suggestions, and as a very nervous bride they helped me feel confident in making decisions.

The food was phenomenal - all the guests were very complimentary. We had breakfast, lunch, dinner and wedding breakfast while there and not one disappointed. They also cater brilliantly for vegetarians and vegans with lots of menu choices.

The overall cost was also very reasonable, although there were a lot of weddings back to back. Although Soraya and the team knew their stuff and were incredibly helpful and knowledgeable, it sometimes seemed like the team were a bit stretched, and in the early planning stages it was a bit difficult to get hold of people. Minor complaint though, as the wedding day was fantastic (literally nothing went wrong) and I know they've hired extra people to cope with their inevitable extra demand!

Thanks again Soraya and the team!

Absolutely incredible day!

We booked The Maynard after falling in love during our zoom show round; we were living abroad but new this was the right venue for us. Safe to say planning a wedding mid pandemic isn’t way but Georgi, Kate & Soraya went above and beyond from beginning to end to make sure it was perfect. We picked the venue because we love the Peak District - it doesn’t disappoint with incredible views all around, beautiful walks nearby and lots of amazing photo opportunities if you pop your wellies on! All of our guests commented on how welcoming and accommodating all the staff were throughout our weekend, nothing was too much trouble and the team really made our wedding experience (shout out to Carl who honestly was a diamond all weekend). Food was incredible, especially with loads of allergies to cater for and the team went out of their way to make sure everyone was catered for. So many people have said the best wedding meal they’ve ever had! Thank you so much to Kate who managed our day; we worried about absolutely nothing and had the most fun. Honestly we can’t thank The Maynard enough for making our wedding celebration absolutely perfect.

Amazing wedding day!

We got married at The Maynard in May and had the most amazing day. Absolutely everything went according to plan and we felt in safe hands all day.
The location is absolutely perfect and if the weather is kind the garden is fantastic for a drinks reception & for photos.
Surprise view is not too far away to go and get some extra photos!

Heart breaking wedding

Heart breaking wedding.
If you are considering having a wedding there, I strongly recommend you to not have a wedding here.
My husband and I had a wedding there in June 2021 and it was terrible, so we talked to the owner but he kept saying that they recieve good reviews and he has never had problems like we had before and didn't take our problems seriously.

1. The planner left without giving a notice 
We knew that she left from her auto reply and it was shocking and she didn't introduce the new planner properly. But the owner claims that we knew that she left.
2. Room booking
The first planner suggested us to have wedding preparations in different rooms, but she didn't book 2 rooms and my husband had to wake up early and wait for guests' arrivals at the bar area alone.
3. The second planner was recently hired and she didn't even know about basic knowledge such as rooms and checking out time.
4. Breakfast mistakes both the morning of and day after the wedding meant we didnt eat anything.
5. The new planner lost what we brought (decoration) even though she promised she would look after them, but they claimed that it's not their responsibility.
6. They contacted to the guest who stay the hotel 3 days before the wedding even though they kept saiyng that they will contact to them 3 weeks before the wedding.
7. The new planner took some photos of mine by her mobile, but she delete the all without sending to us.
8. The owner said that he has 20 years industry experience, but when we checked his LinkedIn, it says 12 years and considering his age doesnt seem realistic.
They didn't even apologise.I've never had this terrible service and don't know I can call it as service.
