We had a wonderful wedding at the Mandolay Hotel!
We had a wonderful wedding at the Mandolay Hotel! The staff have been so helpful throughout all the wedding planning. Everyone's been especially understanding around lockdown, initially having to postpone the wedding a year, which was done at no extra cost. Even on the lead up to the big day, when restrictions didn't ease as much as we'd hoped, they've been so accomodating with last-minute changes. The day itself was all we could have hoped for and we enjoyed every second. Extra shout outs to Tami and Bruno for all the help you've given us! THANK YOU AGAIN FOR HOSTING US!

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to the whole team at The Mandolay Hotel for making our wedding day so special. We had an amazing day and all of our guests commented on how lovely both the venue and staff were. Thank you in particular to Charlotte the Senior Events Coordinator for helping to put together such a fabulous wedding reception at short notice. You did a wonderful job, the room looked gorgeous & certainly gave our guests the ‘wow’ factor. Also, we would like to say a special thank you to the excellent Banqueting Manager for ensuring our day went so smoothly. His attention to detail & friendly manner helped to created a lovely atmosphere. He really was fantastic & we are beyond grateful for his kindness & professionalism. The entire room was laid out beautifully, the food tasted amazing & the service provided was exceptional. All of the staff were polite & attentive, so please pass on our thanks to all of the team. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone thinking about celebrating their wedding in the heart of Guildford. We look forward to visiting The Mandolay Hotel again.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

I hosted a peacock theme wedding this year and I consider them the best because the family was amazing to work with. I truly felt like apart of the family and because of that feeling I wanted to do everything I could to ensure everything was perfect on the day!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Find out what's most important to you before you start a venue search!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

My winter glam wedding was perfection! No details was left un-turned from the stunning silver linen to the matching silver beaded charger plates that finished off the design look! My bride had a vision and ensured it happened with every detail.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

1. Wow! 2. Boutique 3. Calm 4. Unique 5. Home

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Our garden (shocking I know) a high street venue with green space. This makes it the perfect backdrop of photo's because it's unexpected at our venue. Runner up location is our stunning chandelier before you enter the Mandolay Suite.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We had the number 1 George Micheal impersonator give a surprise performance to our wedding guest. Booked by the bride and groom and was the talk of the night!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Out Filet Meatballs has to be my favorite canape - delicious!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Bacon Baps....I wish more of my weddings did this! A toasted Bacon BAP as all of your guests head to bed is the perfect midnight treat!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The size of our Mandolay just don't expect it when you come to the hotel. But to have a function suite of this size with ceiling height is a WOW factor for sure!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Our team care about a wedding just as much as I do. It shows on the night that we are all in it together in order to ensure the night is perfect!
