We got married at Whitwell in August 2009. We had our ceremony as well as our wedding breakfast and evening reception there. The setting was absolutely beautiful and our guests all commented on this. We felt Whitwell was the perfect setting for a wedding, near to Rutland Water. We had a wonderful wedding day. The staff at Whitwell, especially the wedding co-ordinator could not have been more helpful. She was always there to help with queries when planning the wedding. We felt very reassured and confident with our wedding being in their hands and we were not disappointed. The lawns provided a fantastic setting for photographs. Our wedding breakfast was delicious. Whitwell allowed us the flexibility to give our guests a choice of dishes. This proved to be very popular and some of our guests commented on how the waiters and waitresses knew who to take which dish to. It was obvious that they had studied carefully the plan we had provided. Whitwell also accommodated our wish of having cocktails as our toasts drinks which was a nice alternative to the more traditional toast drinks. Our evening reception was also great, we had a barbeque. This was handled very well and the choice of salads etc with the barbeque was excellent. Many of our guests stayed over. Whitwell was ideal for this as they have quite a lot of rooms which allowed us to all meet again the following morning for breakfast. Overall, we found Whitwell the ideal venue for our wedding and were very pleased that we chose it. The staff were incredibly helpful and always accommodated our ideas and wants for the wedding. Staff were friendly, efficient and unobtrusive on the day. Food was delicious (we had sampled all the dishes and met the chef prior to our wedding). Setting also a very safe, peaceful, countryside location. Perfect as we had little bridesmaids who enjoyed running around and playing with the Giant Jenga and Connect 4 games which were provided by Whitwell. We would definitely recommend the hotel.
