Naomi and I had our wedding at Marwell Hotel recently and can we just say "WOW!" We cannot thank the Marwell Team enough (Especially Meg & Millie, the dynamic duo). These 2 were literally sprinting to meet all our needs, we were stress free throughout the whole day because of how amazing our wedding coordinators were, every question was met with "Yes, of course!" along with a lovely smile. To be frank, I don't know how they do it, I was shattered by the end of the day and all I had to do was stand for photos. 😂 Would definitely recommend Marwell Hotel for weddings/parties/events, the scenery was perfect for photos/video and it had a nice natural feel to it. 😁 Thanks again for all your hard work Marwell!

the wedding team were amazing!
Had our wedding at Marwell in Dec 21 and it was absolutely perfect! The venue is gorgeous, we loved having photos in the woods and the food was amazing. Rooms were clean and spacious and accommodated nearly all our guests! Elise and the wedding team were amazing in advance and on the day. All emails were answered promptly (including late the night before!) and they handled all set-up on the day. If anything went wrong, we didn't notice! Thank you so much for helping to make our day perfect

The room looked absolutely beautiful!
We would highly recommend Marwell Hotel for a wedding. Our coordinator Elise was very helpful throughout with planning our wedding and helped to keep us positive with the unknown around covid. We had our reception in the Oakwood Suite and the room looked absolutely beautiful. The staff were extremely helpful and could not do enough for us. It is a perfect venue.

Amazing place and we will be back again soon!
I recently got married at Marwell hotel, I can honestly say that we had the most amazing day any bride and groom could ever ask for. This is not only because the grounds are absolutely beautiful, but mainly because every one of the staff and the wedding team are such helpful dedicated people. Everyone was hands on, everyone was there to help and to insure everything went smoothly, and it really did. Everyone of my guests praised the food quality….the standards of the hotel and how reasonably priced the rooms are. They was all taken back by how beautiful the surrounding grounds of the hotel are. These are all the reasons I chose marwell as my venue for our special day, as I have visited the hotel many times before with our children for short breaks . Amazing place and we will be back again soon. Thank you to all at marwell hotel 😘
