Full Description
Eastwell Manor is one of the most beautiful locations imaginable and an idyllic place to host your Wedding Reception. The Four Star Hotel, lies in 62 acres of grounds in the midst of a 3,000-acre estate in the heart of the Garden of England. The House has been steeped in Royal History through the Ages and today the regal surroundings and traditional service together with the addition of our Champneys Spa and 9’ Golf Course makes Eastwell a highly esteemed Country House Hotel with a quality of service hard to equal. We are licensed for three rooms in the Hotel and a very romantic Gazebo in a 'Walled Garden' where Civil Ceremonies can be held, this bringing numerous benefits by enabling you to organise your entire day at the same venue.

Our perfect wedding blessing
After one year of marriage we finally got our family and friends to see us renew our vows due to not being able to join us on our actual wedding day. All the preparations were handled so quickly and efficiently thanks to Helen and Alicia. We had to make last minute changes to the guest list which was dealt with without a fuss. We had a fantastic menu tasting prior to our blessing and Chris was our host. He was incredibly attentive and helpful. On the day of our blessing made sure the rest of the staff were efficient, attentive and he worked with energy and enthusiasm. Jim, our toast master was just perfect, can rate this man high enough. Steve and the rest of the staff who helped through out the day were also amazing. A big thank you to our lovely bar lady who kept us up to date throughout the day and made sure our guessed had whatever they required. Sorry we did not get her name. Our only tiny negative over the whole day would be that during the wedding breakfast some of the tables were often left with empty wine glasses. Everyone who stayed in the house absolutely loved their room and the breakfast was lovely. The whole wedding package was amazing. Thank you Eastwell Manor for giving us the perfect day to remember. Jill and Andrew Stimpson.

Our Wedding at Eastwell Manor - 19.07.2021
What a perfect day! We recently got married here at Eastwell Manor and it was a day to remember. I stayed here the night before and was greeted attentively by the reception staff. My bags were carried up to my room and there was a beautiful welcome plate with chocolates. My mum and I had a comfortable night sleep in the deluxe manor room - Countess of Middleton. It was spotlessly clean, with crisp white sheets and no staining. The room was spacious, with a very good size shower and roll top bath, including lovely Champney products. I was allowed to access the rooms to be able to set up for my wedding the afternoon before. This allowed me not to stress in the morning and had a relaxing time getting ready before the ceremony. The food was simply delicious and could not fault the service! The food came out on time and everyone was served within minutes. There was no waiting! I had family members that had dietary requirements and these were catered for with ease. In the evening I had a BBQ which was just as good as the wedding breakfast. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed, with lots of food provided (in fact a little bit to much food). One member of staff in particular waited the whole evening with the food and helped all my guests with serving if required. She was extremely polite and helpful! The wedding cake was taken away to be cut and brought back quickly for my guests, and the bar staff served drinks efficiently. I had 10 rooms in total, 9 for my guests. All my guests said the rooms were clean and spacious, allowing them to have a good night sleep after the celebrations. The bridal suite was amazing, with a lovely bathroom! Breakfast on both days was delicious and service still on top form. It goes without saying, the manor and grounds are simply stunning and picturesque. Perfect for a country wedding and offer the perfect canvas for photographs of all occasions! I am very surprised to see other reviews stating about service and rooms! I have been coming to Eastwell Manor since I was a young girl and have stayed on many occasions. My recent stay was just as fabulous as all the rest, and I do have very high standards. I would highly recommend having a wedding at Eastwell Manor! Yes, there were little things which were missed but nothing which warrant a complaint! Especially due to unprecedented times at the moment because of Covid, and it certainly did not spoil the day! I am very much looking forward to coming back and making more memories! May I take this opportunity to thank all the staff that made my day memorable.

A great winter wedding with happy guests!
We had a great day and enjoyed the whole experience, I cant speak highly enough of Chris without him the wedding would simply not have functioned. No request too big or too small, a pleasure to deal with.

We had a perfect day
We had a perfect day, thank you Helen for everything you did and please pass on a massive thank you to Chris and all of the staff for making our day an amazing day and one we will remember for the rest of our lives. All of our guests came away very happy too. We’d have no problem recommending Eastwell Manor for anything, from lunch to having a wedding and I’m sure we’ll be back again soon.

We truly had the best day of our lives.
We truly had the best day of our lives. Everything was amazing. Thank you so much for setting everything up so well, it looked better than I imagined. It was very reassuring to see your face, Helen, when I arrived very late and a bit overwhelmed before going in to the ceremony room! Please pass on our thanks to Chris, the service during the wedding breakfast was brilliant and he was a very calming influence when we were waiting to join the party in the rose garden room. Jim, our MC, was also really brilliant. He was an invaluable part of the day. His small but very thoughtful suggestions throughout the day made a massive difference, such as the music playing when we entered the wedding breakfast, and his tribute to those who couldn't be with us after the main speeches. Every single guest commented on what a brilliant day it was, and how smoothly everything ran. Many guests also commented on how good the food was.
