    Genuinely Perfect

    Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your colleagues for the amazing job everyone did on our wedding day!

    My guests were blown away not only by the beautiful venue but the food and how helpful the staff were! It was flawless from start to finish! The Master of Ceremony was so helpful and super friendly. He definitely made the day go very smoothly!

    I was fully prepared that there is no such thing as the perfect day and that there would be hiccups but as far as I’m aware there were none! It was genuinely the best day!

    Perfect

    I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Oxford Thames hotel, but more especially to Robyn for everything that she did for us. Her support, patience, and enthusiasm during the planning process made everything so much easier for us, and we really enjoyed working with her and the team.

    As for the day itself, it was just seemless. And even the weather played along! Please also thank the toastmaster for us. Many of the guests commented on how great he was!

    Fantastic

    We want to thank you and all the staff at Oxford Thames Hotel for the truly superb time we all had at our wedding over the weekend.

    In particular, our gratitude to all the staff for their unfailing helpfulness, friendly yet professional manner, and just being there whenever needed. Also, the Wedding Breakfast exceeded our expectations - and the waiters and waitresses were lovely. I can't praise you all highly enough.

    We loved every aspect of the hotel and its grounds, and are only sorry that we couldn't do justice to the gardens due to the weather - but never mind, we all just got on with having a great time in the various settings you provided.

    Thank you Robyn for being a fantastic Wedding Coordinator. I hope your ears have been ringing for the last few days from the constant praise we've given you. I'll never forget our wonderful wedding weekend at the Oxford Thames Hotel.

    It was a fantastic day!

    Firstly, we'd like to take this opportunity to say thank you for all your help in the run up to our wedding. It was a fantastic day, and we had a brilliant time! All of our guests enjoyed themselves and enjoyed being at the hotel. We had lots of compliments on their rooms, the grounds and the hotel in general.

    In particular, we would like to pass on the feedback that the food was excellent. It was really consistently good throughout the day, and lots of our guests complimented the food. The evening buffet was brilliant too.

    We'd also like to extend a huge thank you for Mark the toast master. He went above and beyond his duty all day and did such a fantastic job.
