“Perfect wedding venue !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

I cannot thank John and his fabulous team of dedicated and committed staff enough for giving us the perfect day for my daughters wedding 31.5.13. From the initial planning which started over 18 minths ago to the last drink at 1.00am this morning I honestly could not fault the venue.

The hotel looked pristine, having had a lick of paint and loads of work in the extensive grounds. From the second we arrived everything was smooth as a well oiled machine. We were greeted as old friends and were lucky enough to have the whole venue exclusively (they can cater for up to 4 weddings on any day). We were again, lucky with the weather and were able to start the festivities in the lovely patio area. We had canapes and pims before sitting down 86 people for a fantastic afternoon tea (highly recommended) Everyone was served with speed and courtesy and , again, I cannot fault the professionalism of the staff led by the charismatic and charming John who acted as our MC for the day.
The evening was rounded off with a sumptuous buffet and we reluctantly retired to our wonderful room (125, Bakewell Suite) where a huge bed and first class facilities waited for us.

I came down for a quite stroll arond the grounds at 7.00am to find the whole place had been completely cleaned and set up for a very good breakfast. Almost miraculous!

I may sound like a salesman for this hotel ut I honestly do not think you can get a better venue for a wedding in Derbyshire. Contact me directly if you have any queries.

Wow, what an amazing review.

We are so thrilled that you had a fabulous day and that every arrangement that was undertaken on your behalf provided you with a day that exceeded your expectations.

The setting at Ringwood Hall lends itself so well to informal and relaxed wedding celebrations with the extensive garden terraces the perfect location for pimms and canapes.

We were thrilled to read your description of Ringwood Hall as the best wedding venue in Derbyshire and can only thank you profusely for that observation.

Good advice to guests making reservations with us. Whilst often busy with wedding parties which can be quite excitable and therefore noisy, make your reservations direct with the hotel than just online and then you can discuss your requirements to be allocated in our quieter rooms away from the banqueting suites.

Thank you for your fabulous review.

We had 2 nights here and were delighted with the room and restaurant. The hotel is set in beautiful gardens and they obviously do good business in weddings. There was a wedding in progress when we arrived and apart from the groom setting off the fire alarm at 3am we couldn't fault this place.

Thank you for your lovely review and delighted that you had such a pleasant and enjoyable stay with us.

Sorry that your sleep was disturbed by the groom accidentally setting off the fire alarm. Poor chap was very embarrassed about it all.

We are very fortunate to have such a beautiful setting and our continued restoration of the Victorian Gardens provided us with the most wonderful of settings. We are proud to be a winner of several East Midlands in Bloom awards.

We look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back.

On the 7th April, i made my way to the Ringwood Hall Hotel to sign away the rest of my life by getting married to my beautiful Fiancée. We chose Ringwood Hall around 12-18 months in advance. We were taking in by the awesome surroundings, a beaut of an entrance and lovely interior.
After meeting up with staff on the few initial occasions such as Rona, John and so many others I can't remember at the moment. We booked without hesitation and each leg of the journey from this to the day in question was smooth, easy and most of all, stress free.
What we paid for the wedding... well, let me just say you hear of ridiculous fees and transactions taking place for one day. For my wife and I, it was money well spent and second thoughts were generally not given. Its like paying Tesco Value price for Tesco Finest range.
I don't think we could have planned the day any better than it went. Thanks to Lyndon and his team of perfectionists, it was an incredible day that went as quickly as it took me to write this (actual quick). The Coach House was a nigh on perfect room for our Family and Friends, it was decorated in a classy fashion and everything looked in place.
The Gatehouse was a brilliant choice of Suite and it was spotless when we arrived back from a long day. Good sleep for the very few hours we got.
We are planning on coming up for our anniversary for a meal but up until then, I will recommend this place to anyone and everyone looking for an overnight getaway, a weekend around the Peak District or the best day of your goddam life. Thank you Ringwood.

Wow, what an amazing review and thank you so much for taking the time to write it.

Delighted that your wedding day was so wonderful and that everything from beginning to end, from arrival at your first showround to retiring on your wedding night, exceeded your expectations.

We feel that not only do we provide a stunning setting with excellent facilities but we look to offer our bridal couples little added extras that go a long way towards keeping within the budget.

Our packages are designed to cover as much detail of the "Big Day" as possible. Chair and table dressings make such a difference and can soon start to escalate costs. Your Spring Package had lots of little "extras" too. So glad that you had such an amazing day.....just what we plan for !!

Lyndon and his team thoroughly enjoyed looking after you on the day, and together we all wish you both the happiest, healthiest and most prosperous lives together.

We look forward to welcoming you back on your first wedding anniversary.

we stayed 22nd & 23rd May, had 2 rooms in a house apart from the main hotel. 1 was a feature room & the other a superior room - both outstanding. Breakfasts were help yourself, plenty of variety & excellent staff. Tried out the pool/sauna & steam room - very clean, again staff very helpful. 1 negative - you need an overdraft if buying drinks! Shame really, as they have everything else just perfect.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your lovely review.

Once again it is great to see the excellent " people skills" of the team at Ringwood are recognised and that all aspects of the facility from the Health & Fitness Suite through to the accommodation were found to be outstanding.

Interesting observation with regard to the prices for alcohol. I would agree that prices are slightly above those you might see in restaurants and inns though definately lower than our competitors within the area but, we strive to keep our gardens as beautiful as they are and all our facilities in tip top condition and so we have to make a profit to do this.

Hope you understand and that it would not deter you from returning.

We stayed at this hotel for just one night at a friends wedding. The wedding took place in the hotel and the wedding breakfast and evening event took place in a marquee in the grounds. The hotel itself is located in it's own large grounds. All the staff we had dealings with during the whole day and the next morning were very pleasant and attentive.There were 3 weddings taking place at the hotel on the same day and there weren't any clashes, issues or conflicts etc which takes some organising and skill. Everything was made a lot better by the fact that the weather was really hot and sunny on both days which showed off the vast grounds in their best light. The room we had was large and the bed very comfortable and everywhere very clean and tidy. The bath was in the corner of the bedroom in the room we had. The car park was large and spacious but needed to be with 3 weddings taking place but enough space to cope. We didn't notice any noise but we were at the front of the building and the events were all in the rear areas. There was a health suite but we didn't use it. Free WiFi was available but again we didn't use it. Breakfast was really good and everything well cooked and presented. I didn't notice a lift in the hotel - not an issue for us but may be worth asking if difficulty in climbing stairs etc. Drink prices were slightly above average. We very much enjoyed our stay and would return.

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to leave this lovely review. Delighted that you had such a wonderful time when you stayed at the hote attending a wedding, and that you found the team to be welcoming, friendly and attentive.

Our Garden Marquee is a fabulous facility and I am sure that you enjoyed the setting that it provides.

Set in a secluded private garden area overlooking parkland with a view down to the lake, the marquee is accessed by a private road. Adjacent is a secret garden enchantingly lit at night by festoon lighting. Little wonder that our Marquee is being described as the best marquee facility for miles around. I am glad that you agree.

Whilst we are a venue that conducts more than one wedding on any one day, it is great to see your observation that the organisation is such that one does not compromise the space of another. That said with 30 acres of gardens and parklands that should never really become an issue.

Delighted that you enjoyed the food at all times and that overall your stay was so enjoyable that you would return and we hope to have the opportunity of welcoming you back.

Absolutely brilliant, what a beautiful Hotel, from arrival to departure, faultless.
We only stayed one night for a Wedding Reception, friendly, helpful, informative and very professional staff. The food was excellent; I have never seen such slick and efficient service during the serving of the meal. The evening buffet was lovely. A stunning Hotel in a superb setting.

Thank you for your wonderful review following your stay at Ringwood as a wedding guest.

We could not hope for a more amazing overview from a guest perspective and it was a pleasure to read.

We know that we have a stunning hotel in a superb setting but its wonderful when a wedding guest sums it all up like that.

We hope to have the opportunity of welcoming you back in the future.

We have just returned from a night at Ringwood hall for our nephews wedding, the room was spotless, the staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. The food was lovely and plentiful and the room set up was very well executed.

We have one negative comment which is that the drinks are beyond expensive and it did put a slight downer on the night out. £1.75 for a 250ml lemonade, £4.80 for a bottle of cider, absolutely over the top! As a small family of 3 a round of drinks cost over £10 which is very disappointing,

we would love to stay again but we could not afford to purely down to the cost of the drinks.

Room Tip: There are alot of rooms within the hall so be prepared for quite a walk and alot of stairs.

Delighted to read how much you enjoyed your stay with us on the occasion of your nephew`s wedding taking place at Ringwood.

Disappointing to read your feedback with regard to the cost of the drinks at the bar. Inevitably hotel bar prices are higher than pubs and restaurants but we do our best not to mirror some prices charged by hotels and, generally we are on a par or lower than our local competitors.

Nonetheless it does not seem to have spoilt your enjoyment of the day and it was pleasing to read that you found the food quality to be exceptional and as importantly you were met by friendly, courteous and helpful staff.

We truly hope that you will return to visit us again.
