I attended a wedding here in April 2012. The whole establishment has a charming old English cottage feel and the marquee setup for the wedding reception was beautiful. The only disappointment was that the whole place (most importantly the pub!) was closed by midnight. It’s a little early in my opinion but understandable. The staff during the wedding were very friendly and helpful and the wedding MC that was provided by Camden Valley Inn was fantastic! (sorry - can't remember his name!)
I shared my room with a friend – it was a large room, very clean, with a big bathroom/shower and we each had a double (possibly queen size) bed. The price was quite reasonable considering you could comfortably fit four people in the room and split the cost four ways. I’d recommend rooms 1-4 as they are further to the back and sort of separated from the rest of the accommodation so there was no noise and also a pretty view of the bush/farmland.
The food during the wedding and also breakfast the next day was great. I would definitely recommend getting the chocolate pudding for dessert!
My only (small) complaint would be the customer service. In the week leading up to our stay I tried to call and confirm everything was fine with our booking. My calls went straight to a voicemail message that said “hi, leave a message and I’ll get back to you” – not very professional. Also when I was checking in there was quite a wait as there were two people in front of me and only one person on reception. The person on reception also had to cover phone calls while checking people in so it was a bit of a slow process.
Apart from that, it was a lovely stay and I will definitely be back!
