“Fantastic Wedding Venue/Hotel and terrific staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2010

My husband and I have just got back from a two night stay at the Miramar. Our Daughter in Law and Son got married there on Friday. Everything was just so fantastic and all the guests were made to feel very welcome by each member of staff. The Wedding was just magical, with the service taking place outside in the beautiful grounds, overlooking the sea. The weather was just glorious which made the day so perfect, as the guests could just relax outside in the sunshine before the Wedding Dinner with a pianist (who was brilliant) playing in the background The Dinner was delicious, and served very quickly and efficiently, so was lovely and hot, same too with the breakfasts. Extra special thanks must go to David, Jane, David's Mother and John, for making the day such a tremendous success. But all the staff are to be congratulated (including housekeeping) for making sure everything was perfect. If you are looking for an extra special venue for your Wedding, look no further - the Miramar is just wonderful.
Mary and Larry Kemp, Weston super Mare.

Great location, nice hotel, nice food, terrible management! Having booked a wedding at the miramar early 2009 we needed to change the date, we phoned 4 times, sent 4 emails and even visited the hotel to arrange the changes but were completely ignored by the manager, It took 5 months to get a response and only then when I had threatened to take them to court. We received a sarcastic and condescending letter from the manager who did not even apologise for the 5 month wait for a response. Incompetent and a couldn't care less attitude by the manager lets the whole place down!

On my stay this hotel had 3 functions in one day incl. a wedding. Could not get my car out of the car park as everybody had parked anywhere they liked completely blocking everybody. The people belonging to the various functions run riot.
However,without these functions- possibly midweek- this seems like a good 3* star hotel(nothing more) with well equipped rooms(nice views over the sea) and good food.
Perhaps one should check on the number of functions to be held at the hotel before finalising a booking.

My new wife and I have just had our wedding at the Hotel Miramar at Easter, and we could not have asked for better.

The Hotel as a venue was fantastic as we did take over a large proportion of it, we used all but one of their function rooms. The pre-wedding planning service was excellent as we did keep making those last minute changes. Everything on the day was perfect and just as we wanted it. It was comforting to know that everything was asked for and had spent a year planning was done with what seemed like very little effort, nothing was too much trouble for anyone.

The Hotel is rustic in decor and design, but we really felt that this added to the charm This is not to say that it looks in anyway shabby or run down, it is really well maintained and kept to a very high standard.

Thankfully the weather was on our side and so we were able to have our photos outside in the beautiful gardens and then after the wedding breakfast, one of the hotel porters drove us down to the beach for some more photos.

The food for the wedding breakfast was amazing. We were slightly concerned as we had only opted for a fairly basic menu, but it was really good, as were the bacon rolls we had for the evening buffet.

Most of our family stayed overnight and many stayed for 2 nights as they had come from up North and Scotland. All of the rooms we saw were of a really good size, comfortable, clean and well equipped. Each room was individual which made a really nice change from many modern hotels (the likes of Premier Inn for example)

All the staff were friendly and polite and an asset to the hotel. Special thanks must go to David, Theo, Jane and the rest of the team for making this such a special day for us which we will never forget.
