Everything we hoped for and more...
By Kirsty and Jonathan, on 14 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 10 Feb 2018
Very accommodating to guests and ourselves throughout the day, amending times, food and table layouts to suit our needs. Constantly asking if everything was ok or if anything needed doing. Listened to everything we requested and helped make our vision for the day reality. Couldn’t fault any of the staff in food service, evening bar, management and coordination of the day. The location was perfect and we loved having use of both the marquee and Burghley room. Every guest commented on how lovely the food was and how friendly the staff were. Various guests stayed the night and couldn’t fault the rooms and the breakfast was lovely too. We would have no hesitation in coming back to make use of the restaurant and hotel facilities in the future. Totally perfect wedding day.

We booked a late availability wedding at the William Cecil (booked Oct 2017, wedding in Jan 2018). I can't praise the team highly enough! We had regular meetings, complimentary menu tasting (all the food was fantastic!) and even last minute dietary requirements weren't a problem. I had so many compliments from my guests about the food, the laid back atmosphere and the staff. There was a real feeling that no request was too much.
We had the perfect wedding day and wouldn't change a thing.

We looked at several venues before choosing the William Cecil for it's charm and decor. Our wedding planner Amy was extremely helpful and organised and kept us informed of the whole process as we went along. Our MC on the day, Shane was also very good and helped our big day run smoothly. All the food was superb, from the wedding breakfast to the evening hot buffet which was freshly prepared and delicious with more than enough provided. All of the hotel staff were very helpful and friendly and we could not fault the hotel on anything that made our day so special.

We had our wedding at the William Cecil in December. Having only booked the venue late August we had a lot of work to do but with the help of Amy, Shane and the rest of the staff we had the best day of our lives. All our guests commented on how relaxed the whole day was and how lovely the venue, food and rooms were. The attention to detail from the staff was impeccable and any requests we had were met.
Overall a wonderful day and we want to do it all over again. Thank you to the William Cecil

Our experience of the William Cecil.....
By Mark and Bev Sheffield, on 07 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Dec 2017
Our experience of the William Cecil from our first meeting with wedding coordinator Amy Dawkins to the actual day itself was first class. We couldn’t have asked for more.
The whole team at the hotel really understood what we were looking for in order to make our day unforgettable. Kieran (General Manager) and Amy worked tirelessly to ensure every tiny detail was perfect.
The Chef was amazing and the food he produced was of the highest quality, piping hot and all served with impeccable timing.
We cannot thank the delightful Amy, Kieran and the whole staff enough. If you are looking for a perfect wedding venue in the Stamford area, look no further.

Our wedding was just perfect
By Nikki and Austin, on 18 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 27 Oct 2017
Thank you so much for all your help, our wedding was just perfect. We cannot praise all the staff enough as each and every one made our day just wonderful. Special thanks to Amy though and to Shane who was so humorous and a joy!
We would love to come back for our anniversary next year as The William Cecil has a special place with us now! (We loved it before anyway).
Everyone commented on what a wonderful venue it is and said the food was amazing.

Our day was made extra special by the service from all at the William Cecil. Extra special thanks to Amy and Shane for their attention to detail. The marquee looked even better than we imagined as did the Burghley room. We were all looked after impeccably and couldn't have asked for more. We had the most perfect day.
By Carys and Richard, on 19 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 06 Oct 2017
AMAZING! We have just got home after having our wedding at The William Cecil. I cannot thank them enough for helping make our day so perfect! A special thank you to Shane, Amy and Megan for all your help on the day! We can't recommend The William Cecil enough. No negatives at all!
The most special day we could have wished for
By Dawn and Nigel, on 19 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 04 Oct 2017
We would like to thank all of the staff involved in making our wedding lunch at The William Cecil the most special day we could have wished for.
From meeting Amy Dawkins, the wedding coordinator for The William Cecil in late June to start our planning, up until the day itself she was there to help and advise us at every step of the way.
This was a small wedding lunch for ten guests and ourselves, but Amy and the team at The William Cecil made us feel very special throughout the day, and nothing was to much trouble.
On arrival on the Tuesday, as Dawn was staying over night with her niece, ready for the ceremony at the Stamford Registry office, Amy met us and said that everything was in order and the team was all prepared for our big day.
On the morning of the wedding the Bennett room was prepared and ready for Dawn and her niece to add the finishing touches, the room looked amazing.
On arrival after the ceremony our guests were greeted with canopies and Prosecco, once Dawn and I arrived we were escorted to the Bennett room where orders for drinks and food were taken.
The food was excellent as was the service from every member of staff involved, they were not overly attentive, but were always there whenever we needed them, which is just how we wanted it to be.
My wife and I are now looking to return for what will be our third Christmas at The William Cecil but our first as Mr and Mrs Munford.
Again many many thanks to Amy and the team for making our day so so special.

We cannot express our gratitude enough to Amy, Kieran, Shane, in fact ALL the staff at The William Cecil. Special mention to the chef and his team for the amazing food and the wonderful service throughout the entire day. Kieran was just born to do this job! His ability to know exactly what you need and when you need it is awesome. From your first meeting with Amy you will instantly know that The William Cecil is THE venue for your special day. We could go on and on and on....... honestly, if we could, we would do it all again!
We had the most amazing wedding
By Sarah & James Sharpe, on 19 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 09 Sep 2017
We can't recommend the William Cecil enough. We held our wedding here this September and they were amazing. Amy was very thorough and very responsive with emails and such. On our wedding day we were looked after by the wonderful Kieran, nothing was too much to ask, the venue was dressed to perfection. We had the most amazing wedding. The food was delicious and all the staff polite. Thank you to all of the team for making our day so special.
