“Ideal Wedding Location”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Our son was married at The Elvetham on the 12th July and everything was just amazing. The hotel and grounds were beautiful, the food was delicious and the staff were really helpful - all was just perfect and could not have been better.

It was a very special day and we would fully recommend The Elvetham.

We were lucky enough to have our wedding at the Elvetham and we were not disappointed. It was everything we could ever have hoped for and more! The staff and management were always on hand to help in any way, and the attention to detail was exceptional. All of our food was exquisite and could not fault in any way. We cannot recommend the venue enough!

My wife and I (still haven't got used to saying that) got married at the Elvetham on the 13th July 2013 and it's fair to say that the location and the staff exceeded all of our expectations.

You only have to look at the pictures on the website or on Trip-advisor to see how stunning the building and the grounds are. Our first contact with the staff was during our menu tasting where Val in the restaurant was lovely, she recommended our starter which proved to be a hit with everyone.

On the day itself we met Andrew who was our master of ceremonies. We cannot speak highly enough of him. Considering the fact that weddings for him are probably a daily occurrence, he made it feel very personal and attended to our every need. He made us both feel a lot more relaxed about the days proceedings and explained everything clearly and simply. From pinning the corsages onto the mens' suits to making sure we always had plenty of fluids (it was the hottest day of the year) he was always there when called upon and everyone went away with something nice to say about him. He is a credit to The Elvetham.

Andrews colleagues were also brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble and they were helpful, attentive and very smiley throughout the day.

The food for the wedding breakfast was excellent, nearly everyone commented on how delicious it was and the barbeque in the evening was also first class. The flowers from the tables were
bought outside which was a nice touch and any wine left over (which wasn't much) was also bought outside for the evening's entertainment.

We would recommend this venue to anyone, it was perfect.

This is a beautiful venue for all to enjoy. Had morning coffee with home made biscuits. Although we had free coffee and biscuits for four, which I won as a raffle prize, the prices on the menu for such a fantastic hotel were very reasonable and in such wonderful surroundings and comfort.
There getting ready for a wedding party, and the dining rooms looked wonderful one set in the orangery with views over the very manicured gardens

We stayed at The Elvetham in the middle of June for my cousin's wedding.

Our room was in the court yard not the hotel. Apart from getting a little lost-as all the corridors looked the same the room was spacious but basic. There was no ceiling light! So the only light were 2 bedside table lamps and obvs the natural light from the window. The very worst thing about the room was the shower-it was pitiful, the water just dribbled out. That was the only downside. The room was clean and it was really nice to be able to actually open a window for some fresh air.

The staff were very tentative, friendly, caring, they made you feel automatically welcome, it was a pleasure to stay and receive such fabulous service.

The whole day was absolutely fantastic and we had excellent weather to boot.

Breakfast was a bit of a mishap, we had to wait an absolute age for glasses to arrive for juice, there were no tables available so no clean cutlery, napkins etc and there didn't appear to many staff on hand. The cooked breakfast itself was as lovely-lots of choice and piping hot.
