We could not be more delighted!
We could not be more delighted! I wanted you and Martin to know just how wonderful we thought our wedding had turned out. You were so kind and thoughtful and the hotel looked beautiful. Everyone remarked on how delicious the food was and even Gerry was full of compliments (he Is usually hard to please!). I loved my wedding breakfast, especially the dream roast potatoes! The staff were so helpful and charming and the tables looked lovely. All our guests have said how much they liked the hotel and it was the perfect location for the happy day. Thank you for everything you all did to make our day very very special and more importantly, very very happy. With kindest regards, Jane and Henry.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you, Mo, and all the staff that helped with our wedding. It went absolutely fantastically, everyone is saying how much they loved it and what a brilliant venue it was. We really can’t thank you all enough for making the weekend so special and run so smoothly. We will definitely be coming to stay again, maybe on anniversaries!

After a further ½ mile round a sharp bend to the right you will find the entrance to Budock Vean Hotel. As you head down our tree lined private drive you know you have arrived somewhere special.
