The staff at Wivenhoe House could not have made the planning any easier, nor the actual day more special. They made sure everything went smoothly going above and beyond their normal roles. My best memory is a member of staff playing a board game on the floor with a very small guest to keep them entertained during the reception. [Read less]
The staff are simply some of the best I have come across in all the years I've been staying at hotels. Considering a lot of them are students that is even more impressive. We had an amazing wedding day and a lot of that was down to the venue. I cannot rate them highly enough. [Read less]
The Events team at Wivenhoe House were absolutely fantastic! The planning meetings covered every tiny detail and our day couldn't have gone any more smoothly - it was perfect. The hotel and parkland are beautiful, and the team worked so hard to deliver us a perfect wedding. Highly recommended. [Read less]
After getting engaged, we visited lots of hotels and venues and decided upon Wivenhoe House. We loved it the first time we visited and were impressed with their Wedding package. We have worked with lots of different staff members in the two years leading up to the wedding, and each one has been professional, enthusiastic and lovely. Someone from the Events team stayed in contact with us regularly via e mail and we also had several meetings to discuss details and to try out the wedding menu (what a great night that was!!!).
I arrived at the hotel with my bridesmaids, and several family members the day before the wedding. I was impressed to see that the room was already nearly set up for our wedding breakfast! The staff involved listened carefully to the details and completed the room absolutely perfectly. Their attention to detail was incredible and very much appreciated by me.
Every member of staff throughout the weekend was friendly and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone! We had the most wonderful wedding day with the ceremony in the Drawing room. It was beautiful weather so we were able to have drinks on the lawn and have photos taken, before heading to the garden suite for our wedding breakfast. The food and the wine was delicious! Everything looked and tasted amazing. The buffet in the evening was also incredible.
The whole hotel is absolutely beautiful and very well maintained. Each room is immaculate. I stayed in the new part of the hotel the night before the wedding, and then we stayed in the Exclusives Suite for our wedding night. We felt very spoilt! Both rooms were amazing.
There isn't anything I would have changed about the venue or the service we received. I would highly recommend Wivenhoe House for a wedding, or any other occasion. We will be looking forward to returning for anniversaries! Thank you to all the staff for making our stay so special and perfect. [Read less]
