We had our wedding and ceremony all at the hotel, the way the hotel is run was fantastic, on the day we could not fault the staff at all, they were brilliant. The food was superb and was served without anyone waiting. The grounds and views are awesome. Would recommend this hotel 100% to have a wedding or any other... More

Whitsand Bay Hotel was the perfect choice of venue to celebrate my daughters marriage. Chloe (Wedding Organiser) was fantastic in the communication and clarification leading up to the big day. The staff were friendly, helpful, polite, accommodating and worked so hard to make sure the day ran smoothly and to our exact requests. There was a high standard of presentation... More
