Amazing hidden gem

We booked Zetter Townhouse Clerkenwell for our intimate micro wedding. It was everything we hoped for and more. From the first visit, to the checkout after the wedding night, just felt like our perfect wedding venue and the coolest hidden gem in town. Staff were absolutely outstanding. Cannot thank Myriam enough who handled every request with biggest smile and patience leading up to the wedding day. Also Holly who moved from Events to Marketing but worked alongside Myriam to handle our requests. Carmen (Karmen?) who was the first to show us the Townhouse and literally ‘sold it’ to us and was amazing the night before the wedding helping myself (the bride) to settle in. Many thanks also to the whole crew on the wedding night - Stefan and others - we could not have asked for a better service and ambience everyone created.

- We booked The Apartment the night before and for the wedding night. What an outstanding room for those looking for amazing photo opportunities; especially that myself, 6 bridesmaids, 3 make up/hairstylists and photographer fitted in for morning preparation and did not feel cramped. Must be the most spacious hotel room in London !
- Reception at Games Room followed by cocktails/dance at the Fireplace Lounge. All our guests absolutely loved every part of it. If you want something different with lots of soul and character - Zetter Townhouse is the place.

Food was fantastic and so were the cocktails. We could not recommend you enough yet I would also like to keep it as our best kept secret.

Thank you everyone at Zetter for making our day unforgettable.

Egle & Jason.

A brilliant wedding planning experience

The Zetter is the perfect venue for an intimate wedding (ours was for 14 guests). In the lead up to planning ours, our events co-ordinator (Hollie) was beyond helpful, even supporting in accommodating some of our one-off requests. I particularly enjoyed finalising details over a celebratory cocktail and the tasting menu we were provided. On the day, we couldn't have been treated any better - every member of the team was helpful and friendly! I would highly recommend this venue and team.

Meticulous in planning and nothing was a problem

Vesta was meticulous in helping us plan are wedding and nothing was a problem. All our queries were dealt with promptly which gave us great confidence of our plans. We were very lucky to have had Vesta as our event organiser.

We would also like to give a special thanks to all the staff who worked on our wedding day. They were kind, friendly, very competent and very attentive. They went absolutely above and beyond what we would have ever expected and our guests had nothing but compliments towards them.

We would also like to thank Eliza who oversaw the day from start to finish. She too was amazing, and ensured the event ran as smoothly as possible.

We are very grateful to have had our wedding at The Zetter Townhouse. It will be very memorable for a long time.

Made everything very easy for us from start to finish!

We cannot thank Marie and Vesta enough for helping us with our special day. They helped worth any queries we had big or small and always ensured they came back to me on everything!
It was very special and all the special touches they did for our little girl was throughly appreciated. We cannot wait to come and stay next year for our anniversary to enjoy the hotel once more!

Perfect Quirky Wedding

We had the most perfect day with Zetter Clerkenwell for our wedding. They were so flexible and accommodating to our requests and inevitable last-minute changes. Not only do they have the most beautiful backdrops for the ceremony, reception and meal, the quality of service was exceptional. Hollie, Myriam and Diogo were patient, professional and expert in supporting us to plan our perfect day. They have everything you could possibly need for your day and are more than happy to liaise with any vendors etc when needed. Our day was exactly what we wanted and more, and that's thanks to the wonderful wedding offer Zetter have. 100% would recommend for a small, intimate and completely unique day.

Such a beautiful wedding at the Zetter Townhouse

Thank you so much to the Zetter Townhouse for helping us have such a beautiful wedding. Everyone loved the cocktails and raved about the venue. Everything about the event felt like 'us'. The Zetter Townhouse staff were extremely helpful in making that a reality.

Please thank and congratulate Guy again on the amazing evening of cocktails!
