Hotels are one of the top choices for couples in Devon, and it’s easy to see why. Hotel wedding venues often have many modern features, often priding themselves on luxurious guest rooms, in-house catering and an abundance of professional staff on hand to help make your dream day a reality. City weddings are the perfect choice for those of you who have guests wanting to travel to you by public transport. Whereas if you opt for a hotel wedding in the countryside, you'll benefit from easier parking and stunning grounds for wedding photos.

Another advantage to having your ceremony and reception in a hotel is that your guests can easily roll into bed after dancing the night away only to meet you for a pleasant breakfast the day after the wedding. If this sounds like what you're looking for. We have lots of hotels listed in Devon so take a look.

Frequently Asked Questions - Hotel wedding celebrations in Devon
What type of hotel should I book for my wedding celebrations?
At Guides for Brides we have hotels of all sizes, from city centre boutique hotels to countryside houses and well-known chains. Our venue finder lets you filter through small and large hotels to find the perfect size for you.
Small hotels tend to have between 10 and 50 rooms, so if you’d like a wedding celebrations venue that your whole wedding celebrations party can take over, then a small hotel may be the perfect choice for you. This also means that you’re less likely to encounter other guests on your day, if you don’t already have an exclusive use booking.
There's often less that 100 guests rooms in a boutique hotel, and are usually decorated in a particularly stylish way. These types of hotels are often located in an urban environment, so if you’re marrying in the city and want your guests to have super chic accommodation, then a boutique hotel is a great choice.
There's hundreds of guest rooms in a large hotel, so if you’re having a big wedding celebrations with plenty of guests, then you may find that a big hotel will suit you. Large hotels often have more wedding celebrations spaces to choose from, such as outdoor marquees, ballrooms or purpose-built wedding celebrations suites, and are a good choice for Asian wedding celebrations in particular.
