This day was truly brilliant!
I'm talking, from the moment you walk through the door and greeted and meted, you are announced with a smile. From the reception service, to the bar service, through to the coordinators and bar staff. The evening team, and the night squad, all of you played the part for Cherie and myself to have the best wedding ever provided. This day was truly brilliant. It could not be faulted. The day was even better as the sun came out and blessed us all. But without you guys, this would not had been as good because as we know, all our friends and family all enjoyed this day, so without you. It would not had been so special. one last thing...never throw away your beef chef, wow, everyone that ate the beef absolutely fell over heels for it, even if it was served cold (which it was not may I add) it would not matter, it would be eaten for many orders to come. the canapes through to the buffet was also mentioned as being very tasteful. Thank you from Cherie and myself...

A big thank to Hawkwell House team.
Our experience for our Wedding with Hawkwell house hotel has been very nice, they have a very good organisation. Alejandra has been our wedding planner, she is very professional and very great communicator, during our meeting she prepared us to make sure that everything would have been fine, also she has been so kind to be there during our ceremony to make sure that everything was fine. All the team have been very helpful, they realised all our requests. Hawkwell house hotel is very nice place, with parking or the guests, very welcoming place, nice garden, if you are lucky with weather you can use it for ceremony outside, if not you can use it to take amazing pictures outside. Nice bar service, our ceremony room and lounge room for the lunch are very clean and nice, both of them have been set up with colour and decorations about our requests. Hawkwell house hotel can provide to give you contacts regarding dj, decorations, flowers. DJ service was very good and very professional, they followed all our instructions regarding music during ceremony and for our first dance. Regarding the food, it is very nice and high quality, all our guests have been very happy regarding it. Thanks to the team at Hawkwell House.

We would recommend this hotel for anyone!
We got married in Hawkwell House 2 weeks ago and from the moment we booked 2 years ago to the final minute we left, the whole experience was flawless! Gary the wedding co-ordinator helped us every step of the way and no matter how big or small our request it was always met with a smile and reassuring comment! We visited the hotel several times before the wedding and the staff were always friendly and helpful. The food during our tasting was wonderful and even on the day when catering for 70 guests (and 200 evening guests) with different orders; the food was still well presented and tasted as if only one dish had been created. Although some small mistakes were made with room bookings, these were quickly corrected on the day and all the rooms were clean, spacious and guaranteed a good night’s sleep. The honeymoon suite was the perfect way to end a very busy day and we stayed an extra night to enjoy the in room hot-tub for a bit longer! We received nothing but positive comments about every element of their stay from our guests. For value for money, in the centre of Oxford, we could not have asked for more from Hawkwell House. We would recommend this hotel for anyone planning a wedding (or just wanting a break) in a picturesque location, with friendly staff, wonderful food and a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.
