What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
We offer a 1-3 night hire as standard, but to avoid any stress I recommend hiring out the venue for the day(s) before the wedding. It doesn't cost much extra, and allows you time to stay over with just your fiancee and parents before the other guests arrive. Any potential issues are spotted 24-48 hours in advance, so there are no last-minute panics, and it means you'll feel really comfortable in your surroundings by the big day.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
One of our couples set up a fabulous way of giving people their table numbers, with a table full of champagne bottles. Each person had to find the mini champagne bottle with their name on it, and turn it over for their table number on the bottom.

What is your venue's most unique feature?
Each and every bedroom is unique, with decorations that have been curated over years to truly give you a different feeling with each bedroom you walk into. There is even a James Bond casino, with a croupier included in the hire charge to run a roulette table for you.
What part of your business are you most proud of?
The reaction from couples as they first look around Hollywood House. It is so different to any other venue, that it really is amazing to see their faces! We often get told that it is even better than the pictures, which I am proud of.
