“Our Wedding at Briars Hall Hotel”
Reviewed May 22, 2011

Following our Wedding abroad we decided to hold a renewal of vows ceremony for our friends and family back home. We had made appointments to look around at a couple of hotels as possible venues for our ceremony but cancelled them after visiting Briars Hall. The staff had made us feel so welcome and the hotel was really lovely and had an intimate feeling, once we had looked around we knew we wanted our ceremony there.

We had two appointments with the Wedding Co-ordinator at the hotel who went through all our arrangements thoroughly, every aspect of the day was detailed for us so there was nothing for us to worry about.

The staff on the day of our ceremony were so helpful and Paul, our Master of Ceremonies, took care of everything leaving us free to enjoy spending time with our guests.

We had our ceremony in The Orangery and the room was decorated beautifully. The food served to our guests was fabulous and very generous in the size of the portions everyone was so full they couldn't move!!! Many of our guests had never been to Briars Hall before but have said they will certainly visit for a meal again. Attention to detail was fabulous too, the dessert plates for guests on the top table were decorated with our names written in chocolate and even the pats of butter were heart shaped! All the food served to guests arrived quickly and was piping hot.

As we had already had a wedding ceremony abroad we weren't looking to spend as much on our ceremony here at home. Briars Hall provided excellent value for money but we still felt like we were having a special day and enjoyed every minute of it!

I would certainly recommend Brairs Hall to anyone looking for a Wedding venue, you will be very well looked after!

Stayed at Briars Hall for a Family Wedding.
What a wonderful experience it was from beginning to end.
The receptionist was helpful and friendly and that followed through to all the staff.
Food was fantastic.. The bar staff although busy were very professional.
I would not hesitate to stay there again and would recommend my friends also.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 105

We recently stayed at the Briars Hall Hotel for my brothers wedding.
The hotel is beautiful, in a setting of plush landscape with beautiful gardens, ideal for a wedding and photo's.
The staff were warm, welcoming and friendly.
Particular mention should go to Karen, the wedding coordinator, Kevin the days MC, Paul the barman whom we had the most contact with, to the young man who poured the gravy at dinner, they made our stay a good one.
The food is excellent, breakfast is all you need to keep you going for the day.
The drink is reasonably priced, served with a smile and always cold!... can't ask for much more in fairness.
We had a fantastic stay at Briars Hall Hotel and would happily recommend it to a friend! :)

we have just celebrated our wedding at Briars hall, and what an amazing venue it is. we were absolutely blown away by the excellence and outstanding service from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. which is a credit to all involved.
The day went so smoothly and effortlessly and we have only praise for everyone involved. the food was fabulous and even one of our guests who is a Master Chef complemented the quality (now that doesnt happen often!!)
Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, management or wedding co ordinator (who is probably one of the lovliest people we have ever had the pleasure to meet) even when we had extra guests turn up unannounced they were able to acommodate them and make them feel welcome too.
it was certainly the happiest day of our lives and it was made extra special by the professionalism of everyone and the sheer beauty of the venue and its grounds.
would we recommend the venue to anyone? well we have to say a huge resounding Yes!!!
Thankyou to all at Briars Hall you were fabulous, we cant wait to come back
Love from the new Mr and Mrs Byrne xxx

We recently had our wedding reception for the day and evening at Briars and I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. During the course of our planning we had visited many hotels who treated us as yet another wedding but at Briars we were made to feel special.

From the initial planning stages right through to the day itself all of the staff were incredibly friendly and had the best levels of customer service. Karen has been a fabulous wedding co-ordinator and ensured that our day went without a hitch.

During the day itself no detail was left to chance and the room and food (Stones restaurant) were simply stunning, there attention to detail for each and everyone of our guests was brilliant. Kevin was a fantastic master of ceremonies and we were simply bowled over by the quality of everything we received.

If you are planning a wedding in the southport, ormskirk area I can strongly recommend Briars. They will make your day memorable.

We recently held my Daughter's wedding ceremony at this hotel and we could not have asked for a better venue.

The staff were extremely attentive both prior and during the wedding. Karen, the wedding organiser was both friendly and efficient and dealt with every request without a problem.

The meal during the day and the evening buffet were both of a high standard and the service during both was excellent - many evening guests commented on how nice the buffet was.

The executive wedding room in which my Daughter and her Husband stayed was very clean and comfortable and the complimentary champagne left in the room was a lovely touch.

I can highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a warm and friendly venue for their wedding.

Thank you for your lovely comments regarding your stay and dinner at Briars Hall Hotel. It was a pleasure to be given the opportunity once again to host your annual Dinner. The hard work and preparation that you put in made my job very easy on the evening. I must say I can't remember the Stones Restaurant ever having so many talented singers/dancers in there at 2am before!! Once again thank you for choosing Briars Hall and I look forward to seeing you in the near future.
