A perfect venue for a perfect day
Venue Service

By Alex Mount, on 18 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Aug 2018

We had our wedding at the Solent Hotel yesterday and I can't express how wonderful our experience has been. From the first time we met Georgia we knew she would be fantastic. Her friendliness, professionalism and helpfulness were a major factor in our decision to host our wedding at the Solent and we were completely vindicated in our decision. No request was ever too silly. Natalie did an incredible job running the wedding on the day and in preparing us in the days leading up to the ceremony. Everything was taken care of, everything ran smoothly and that is due in a large way to Natalie's hard work. We received many compliments on the venue and especially on the food. We had myriad dietary requirements but these were all taken in stride and met. Everything was absolutely delicious. The 'Complete Package' we chose was good value for money and really simplified the process as so many different aspects of the wedding were accounted for. All the suppliers did a great job and the extra suppliers we brought in were managed professionally. Thank you all so much for the incredible service provided, and for helping to make our day perfect.

From start to finish it was truly fantastic!

From the day we met Georgia both Lisa and I knew it was you that would help create our dreams, you have been a rock throughout from dealing with my persistent emails too all the giggles and memories we now have, on the day were both so very proud you could be there for us both, and even just mucking in when needed, all of this said we could not have done it without you. The biggest heartfelt thanks to you. On the day itself everything went according to plan We arrived and it was beginning to look a dream, beyond our eyes, this is down to the guidance and leadership skills required to run a Wedding showcase. Wow, it was truly stunning, it blew our minds at every turn, from walking out to a glass of champagne and a strawberry to the viewing before all the guests. It was just perfect, you're excellent at your job George Thank you for making it completely stress free, it was an honour to have you run our showcase. Throught the meal and the evening reception we had guest after guest approach us to compliment the food, we heard, "it was the best wedding meal we've ever had" and "Wow the beef was stunning". Everything was just fantastic that came from the kitchen. You should all be proud. We loved the waiters and waitresses on the day, the service went perfectly and we didn't see anyone with a glass of wine, beer or juice in there hands. Thank you all for your such hard work on our magical day. It's has been such an honour for us both to work alongside you, thank you all for your guidance and expertise You achieved what you promised us 14 months ago.To create our dream wedding.

The entire day was magical.

By Mr and Mrs Feetam, on 23 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Apr 2018

The wonderful setting, the quality and professionalism of the entire team as well as the level of service and attention to detail is what made the whole wedding experience at the Solent Hotel so special. Being made to feel like the two most important people in the whole world coupled with the fact that absolutely nothing was too much trouble for them made the entire day so amazing. What makes the Solent Hotel so memorable for us is the level of service and attention to detail that all the team there gave us. A very special thank you to Louise Moth, our wedding co-ordinator, and Jake Hayward who was the Master of Ceremonies on the day. He ran the whole day flawlessly and took all the stress out of it for us. He literally thought of everything! They were both so calm and reassuring throughout the whole day. The entire day was magical, thanks in no small part to all of the team members at the Solent Hotel. We had a fabulous wedding day and we were all able to relax and enjoy the moment knowing that everything was in safe hands. We cannot praise them all enough. They were magnificent and a very special thank you to them all.

Everything was totally faultless.
Venue Service

By Lianne and Damien Harry, on 23 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 31 Mar 2018

Having less than a year to plan a wedding was a little bit daunting to say the least, but Georgia was on hand every step of the way to ensure the process ran smoothly. There was nothing she was unable to answer, and a confident “yes” was the answer to everything I requested. We left feeling valued and assured that the most important day of our lives was in the best hands possible. This fabulous customer service continued throughout the process. Georgia and the team were at the end of the phone if there was anything at all we needed to know Everything was totally faultless and I truly cannot think of one thing that wasn’t exactly as we wanted. Timings were spot on, food was delicious, and everybody had a great time on the dance floor. What more could you ask for? I would honestly say that choosing The Solent Hotel and Spa is one of the best decisions we have have ever made. Georgia and the rest of the team there are some of the most professional yet friendly people I have ever met, and I would entrust any huge event to them in total confidence that it would be truly amazing. I am yet to send a Thank you card to them, not because I’ve forgotten, but because no words can ever convey just how brilliant I think they are or how thankful we will be when we look back at the best day of our lives, and know it was their help and hard work that made it possible. I cannot give them enough credit, and I sincerely hope that they are aware of just how much their help, support, humour, and professionalism went to making our day as unforgettably perfect as it could be.

A magical wedding, where you feel like royalty!

Mr & Mr Owen – Married 14th April 2017 From the first meeting with Georgia at the Solent Spa we knew we had found a venue we could entrust with our special day. However it wasn’t until the actual day of our wedding that we realised just how amazing the Solent Spa was at delivering a wedding that exceeds expectation and makes you feel like royalty!! We can't thank the staff enough or recommend them more highly! We will be using them for other events and breaks in the future. Thank you so much, Georgia, Josh and the whole team.

I just wanted you to know how much we thoroughly enjoyed everything about the wedding – both the actual day and the time leading up to it. I know there were a couple of little issues that caused us a little bit of pain, but the way that you and your team rallied round to rectify them and to make sure we had the perfect day were second to none! Absolutely brilliant! From the word go on Saturday morning right through to check out on Sunday you were brilliant and I am very thankful for it all.
