Outstanding Venue
I can’t praise this venue enough that I supply dance floors for. Great communication with all the staff from start to finish making it a pleasure to work with. After speaking to my customers, some who have booked from my recommendation, all totally agree with me. Stunning venue with fabulous staff, if you are looking for a wow factor, this is the venue.

Out of this world
My Daughter and Daughter in law had their wedding with you on 20th January and honestly can not praise you guys enough. We were lucky enough to have the hotel for a couple of days. The hotel was stunning, food and rooms were amazing and every need was catered for. The whole wedding was special and beautiful. The staff deserve a special mention as they worked tirelessly to make sure nothing was too much trouble. Honestly from the bottom of my heart, Thank you for making My daughter and daughter in laws wedding just out of this world and everything they dreamt it would be X

Wow amazing wedding experience!
We recently had our much delayed and re-arranged wedding at this beautiful venue which was spectacular from the interior to the exterior. It was so surreal - the whole experience was beyond our expectations. We booked a number of rooms for the night before for the groom and some guests. There was a music tribute night on the Friday night and the staff accommodated us by providing us with exclusive use of the library room for our privacy, including dining and the remaining evening. On the day of our wedding, staff ensured a perfectly smooth event. We had exclusive use of the whole hotel and grounds, enabling guests to arrive earlier and relax in a beautiful environment. The grounds are well-maintained in addition to the immaculate high standard of the rooms. The bridal suite exceeded our expectations with an amazing view of the grounds. Our gratitude to Luke, Ruth and the team and in particular to the chef who mastered the perfection of gluten free pastry. The guests have commented on how spectacular the food was in addition to the venue. We thank you for making our day sooooo amazing and look forward to visiting you all again.

The Best Day of Our Lives
Where to start! Our wedding was postponed three times due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, and each and every time Dovecliff Hall were there to guide and support us in every way possible. Our wedding day, which was on the hottest and most beautiful day of the year only got better and better as the day went on. To wake up and the sun to be already shining, it was magical! The Grounds were breathtaking.. The team at Dovecliff were amazing all throughout the day, they tried there hardest to keep all the guests comfortable in the sweltering heat, and made sure everything ran smoothly. We had the most beautiful day, and it truly was the best day of our lives. Myself and my Husband cannot thank the team at Dovecliff enough for all there help and support, which meant our day could be as beautiful as it turned out to be!
