“The Wedding of our Dreams 17/8/13”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

Myself and now husband cannot fault Solsgirth House as a Wedding venue. The house itself and surroundings have a magical feel, inside and out it is beautiful. The standard and quality of service by the staff was great and it was clear they have lots of experience of weddings. From the moment I arrived they were calming and helpful, it was a horrible wet day and my worst bridezilla moments came out, but I had nothing to worry about as everything was in hand. It was a friendly relaxed atmosphere and did feel completely private and "our house" for the day to welcome and celebrate with our guests. The food was first class, the service was co-ordinated and everything was timed perfectly. The rooms are stunning and have been finished to a high standard, the beds are so comfy - if there had to be any kind of negative it was that we did not want to leave and the family would have been very happy to have the night before and the whole day after to spend at the house! It was a lovely escape to surroundings we would normally not be in and it was the best day of our lives so far. Thanks to everyone at Solsgirth! Emma & Danny xx

This was the venue for our daughter's wedding on 6th September - and we could not have asked for a better place. The staff, the atmosphere and the food were all excellent, and we could not fault a thing. Angela and Kirsten had gone out of their way to make this a special day, and Shona in addition on the day did a great job. Thank you. Matt (Head Chef) produced the most wonderful food (considering he had photographers delays to deal with....) - especially as he had so many "special"diets to deal with - there was no hassle - all needs required and dealt with discretely. Superb!
The bar staff in the evening were very attentive and helpful. Again, the evening food was wonderful - including the vegetarian Stovies!
Our daughter had an idyllic wedding, and we can't thank the staff of Solsgirth enough for making it such a special day. I know it is the people attending such events that make it a great occasion, but I really would like to sing the praises of all the Solsgirth staff for helping in making it such a memorable day. Thank you so much.

Solsgirth House is a lovely old building set in beautiful grounds elegantly decorated with period furniture and ideal setting for a wedding. If I had one tiny complaint the bar was not very well stocked for a venue hosting weddings. no complaints about the food or the service.
Very Good !!!

We recently attended my nieces wedding at Solsgirth House and stayed overnight in The Coach House. The hotel and grounds are stunning and the rooms in the Coach House very contemporary, comfortable and the perfect place to stay for guests. The staff's attention to detail is faultless and they can't do enough for you. The food is amazing quality given they are catering for such high numbers and the bar prices reasonable. Only issue was the small room where my niece was married. There was very little room for guests and the bridal party and standing up was a bit of a challenge! We had a fab breakfast in the morning which helped clear our heads after the most perfect wedding day.

My now wife and I married at Solsgirth House on Monday 5th August 2013. The house and surrounding grounds are beautiful and the staff who helped plan our wedding (Angela & Kirsten) were very helpful in the run up to our big day. Gill and I are so thankful to every single one of the staff as nothing was too much trouble, even a last minute decision to change from an indoor ceremony to outdoors was handled with no fuss. The general manager on the day Jan was also excellent and kept a keen eye on all the proceedings.

The food was of the highest standard. From the canopies to the main meal and on to the Scottish buffet the standard never dropped. All our guests were raving about the food and service.

The rooms were very comfortable and had been cleaned to a high standard as was the rest of the house.

Breakfast in the morning was also first class. I would highly recommend this as a wedding venue. Perfect for those looking for elegance and exclusive use.

Solsgirth House is a beautiful setting for a wedding / reception. Waitresses readily on hand to offer drinks - no waiting or having to ask. First class food served at the Wedding Breakfast (Chef and staff to be congratulated), with all tables being served simultaneously (not always achieved when large number of guests dining together). Very efficient "maître-de" continually circulating and dealing with any requests and ensuring all her staff worked for the benefit of guests.

Unfortunately pouring with rain on arrival - perhaps during inclement weather the House could give thought to providing a doorman with a very large umbrella to meet the guests, in order that clothes and hats remain looking their best. Also, a number of large umbrellas just inside the front door that can be borrowed by guests.

The evening reception held in a permanent marque situated in the grounds a short walk away. Very pleasant looking with windows along one side, overlooking patio area with tables / chairs for when the weather allows. Good quality toilets. Perhaps be mindful that the marque is large and therefore definitely requires sufficient number of guests to fill - flowers / decorations etc. also need to be in proportion with the size of the marque.

Solsgirth House is obviously use to hosting weddings and their attention to detail certainly shows.
