“Excellent Wedding Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

We had our wedding at Woodside in May 2013.
We had an amazing day.
The perfect setting for a wedding with lovely reception rooms and grounds.
The food was devine. The staff were fantastic.
Big thanks to Becky and the rest of the staff.
I'd definitely recommend it to couples getting married.

We attended my niece's wedding at Woodside, but did not stay here and, therefore, the review is for the venue and the food. Firstly, I have to agree with the former reviewer, the young staff were exceptional, nothing was too much trouble and they worked so hard from when we arrived at 2pm, to well after 12 pm, always with a smile. We sere served canapes before the meal and I knew, after sampling these, that the food was going to be excellent. We couldn't fault the meal, everything was cooked to perfection, plentiful and at the right temperature. Well done Woodside, all of your staff are a credit to you. Would certainly recommend.

I attended a wedding recently in August 2013. I highly recommend having a wedding at this venue, the ceremony room was amazing and well decorated, as was the restaurant where we had the wedding breakfast. The food here is simply brilliant and the service by the staff even better, all the staff were happy and smiling and it wasn't a problem for them if you asked them a question, they all would attend to your every need. This was great for us and really made the day. The drinks are reasonably priced for a hotel, which surprised me. The bedroom was okay, could possibly do with a re-decorating. The nights sleep was okay except the walls are very thin so you can hear the people in the next room. I was looking for to breakfast the next day and it didn't disappoint. The breakfast buffet was hot, unlike most hotels and they had a great selection of cold fruits. The staff in the morning were great again which I was impressed by as they must of been there since the early hours!! Overall a fantastic wedding/party venue and I would recommend to anyone. P.s. the man that ran the wedding on this night was simply amazing, think his name was Kurray?? His sense of humor and all round attitude to the event and guests was brilliant, he is also hilarious!!

This is my second time staying at Woodside, and again I can't fault anything.

First time was nearly 4 years ago and this time was for a family wedding. The hotel is accessed by controlled gates and a lovely driveway and the hotel itself is stunning from the outside. The reception area is very inviting and spacious and all staff I encountered were friendly, helpful and cheerful. I stayed in a family room and it was big enough for 2 adults and 3 children hubby was very impressed with the tv channels available and the 2 older kids had great fun on the camp beds supplied. The travel cot supplied for baby was clean and bright. The staff were amazing for the whole weekend we were there dealing with room service for 2 children (I felt I ordered a lot of meals and drinks onto my room tab and when i received the bill when checking out i was really surprised at how reasonable the prices were)

Now with an 8 year old a 2 year old and a 3 month old baby nowhere is going to be easy but I honestly felt relaxed the whole weekend, the gardens are massive and they had great fun playing on the garden games, looking for "hop hop's" and trying to remove King Arthur's sword from the stone.

The hotel as a wedding venue is super, as with all weddings there is a lot of hanging about for guests but there is plenty of places for people to sit without being crammed. The food was amazing and service outstanding, the room where is all happens is beautiful. My sister had a gorgeous wedding that went without a hitch and we all enjoyed every minute of it.

Family wedding, we stayed over for the Saturday night, so basically two reviews.
Wedding Venue, great setting in a parkland type garden, old manor house with modernised interior. Made very welcome when we arrived, very nice reception staff. The actual ceremony was conducted in a nicely decorated and well laid out side room, Photographs etc, taken in the garden, usual trees,etc for atmosphere, plus, the sword in the stone made for great "King Arthurion" photos.The dining room looked really nice and well laid out. The meal was of good quality, very ample proportions and nicely cooked, good selection vegetables, once again well cooked and HOT. A very important point , grooms mother has to watch her diet , gluten free, it should be noted that the staff at this hotel were exceptional in their attitude and attention to the request for gluten free. Checking and re-checking that all was OK.Even to the point of bringing out a plate of biscuits, gluten free.It can be quiet a problem sometimes, but, not at this hotel.The day could not have been bettered, so a big thank you to the staff and management.

The rooms are modern and I would say a little bit sparse, everything you need is there and very clean, but lacking atmosphere. Wardrobe hanging area is tiny, especially with the ironing board taking its place inside, bathroom is well equiped but evidence of mould on the bath side grouting detracted a little. Nothing major , but if you are staying for more than a weekend maybe more wardrobe/draw space would be helpful.
Staff are exceptional both in attitude and ability, as a wedding venue ,one of the best, rooms good,clean,modern.

Breakfast,once again, great, good choice, fresh fruit, full English,kippers, porridge, etc and oh! joy of joy's a toast machine that actually does it job, toasts both sides to a nice golden brown, quickly.
Despite the slight negatives, a hotel/wedding venue that will not fail to please.

Firstly, I have to say how friendly the staff are at this hotel. I stayed here for a couple of weeks and they could not do enough to help me. The breakfasts are amazing, there is a pool, a sauna, a gym and a pitch & putt course. The rooms are quite small but the beds are comfy. I enjoyed my stay here.

Room Tip: Quiet rooms are 37, 38 & 39 near the back of the hotel.

have stayed at woodside on 2 occasions now; first time was around 4 years ago and most recently this august for a family wedding. the surroundings are so so pretty. bunnies on the lawn, lovley old building and nice grounds. the rooms are really fine....could be doing with a slight touch up here and there but clean and tidy enough. breakfast was fine as well. i am veggie and i believe i could have requested veggie sausages etc, but to be honest, there is plenty of non-meat alternatives (beans, hash brown, toast, cereal, mushrooms, fried bread, tomato, fruit)

the staff are pleasant and helpful and the toast-master type man at the wedding was fantastic.

the pool is really fine as well, clean enough and totally adequate.

there are also a few nooks and crannies to the hotel. a little courtyard for drinks, a conservatory, a little bar further down the hall, a little snug type room, the main large hall/restaurant. its lovley.

all in all, a lovley hotel, ideal for a wedding. will certainly be visiting again.
