“Our Wedding was perfect in every way!! Drakes is right on the seafront in Brighton so the views were just fabulous (and a great iconic location for our photos, with The Pier almost opposite the hotel.) We booked the whole hotel and restaurant for our small wedding as we felt it gave us the privacy we wanted for our 40 guests but also the relaxation of knowing we had the run of the place and it was all about us and our nearest and dearest. Drakes really surpassed our expectations!! Was truly wonderful! Our celebration dinner was excellent and so many of our guests commented on what a superb meal it was. No wonder Drakes restaurant has the reputation they have! It really was a highlight for us and totally memorable.
All the staff were amazing and really did make us feel super special throughout the day and even at 3 in the morning, when some of us (!) were still celebrating. The wonderful Night Manager Malcolm, who also looked after us at Breakfast was so accommodating and understanding.
Everything was really perfect. Right from the start when we were in the planning stages until it was time to leave the wonderful hotel, my husband and I could not fault anything. It really is a perfect venue if you want private use, top quality food and service and lush bedrooms (they can only do up to 40 people but it does make it very select and personal!)
