This modern room can seat up to 80 for the day and 150 for the evening and is also the perfect location for a relaxing drinks reception. For a small more intimate affair, The Terrace is the ideal setting for ceremonies of up to 50 people or a small wedding breakfast of 30. This room is bathed in natural light from the large Georgian windows and the glass-roofed terrace, and has idyllic views across the landscaped gardens. Throughout the planning process your experienced wedding Coordinator will be happy to help with planning your special day down to the finest detail, to ensure that everything runs smoothly and you can simply relax and enjoy your dream wedding day.

Perfect Venue - Goes Above & Beyond
Stifford Hall was our wedding venue in May 2022. From the very first visit Amanda looked after us and we could not have been in better hands. She was so so unbelievably attentive to every single little wish and (sometimes odd!) requests that we made and always on hand to offer advise and give us the endless time we took to make decisions! In truth, Amanda was the decider, we were very keen on a venue closer to home but Amanda’s friendly, outstandingly helpful and supportive manner swayed the vote. The venue is so clean, fresh and modern and catered to our 110 guests amazingly well. All of the staff on the day were very helpful and made our guests feel very welcome and looked after. The terrace is simply beautiful for drinks and canapés and the suite so well decorated and bright and light for dinner and dancing. The food was amazing and we had lots of compliments from our guests. Additionally the bridal suite was decorated for us for our wedding night which was just a lovely extra touch.

Wedding Review Trip Advisor
We recently had our wedding at Stifford Hall Hotel and everything was perfect. We actually had our wedding booked at another venue, but I accidentally stumbled on Stifford Hall when I booked a last minute afternoon tea and fell in love with the place. From the moment I stepped foot into the hotel up to the day after the wedding the staff have been fantastic. Especially Amanda, we can not thank you enough for everything you done for us. Amanda has been fantastic, from answering my annoying emails straight away to supporting us on the day. She really made our wedding special which we will forever be grateful for. The hotel went above and beyond to give us what we needed and wanted for our special day. Plus, their afternoon tea is to die for, definitely well worth a visit.

When it came to the day it went without a hitch
Amanda, the Assistant General manager, was there right through from the first meeting to the wedding day. The whole process was handled very professional and Amanda made us feel at ease at every stage. When it came to the day it all went without a hitch. The food for both the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet was very good.

The staff could not have done more
The staff could not have done more, Amanda the wedding coordinator was amazing, we had a wedding package from the hotel which was great value and flexible and the DJ organised by the hotel was great. I literally could not fault the staff or the venue, the food was amazing along with the wine and all our guests said what an amazing day it was.

Our Magical Day
On Weds 31st July we had our magical Wedding Day at Stifford Hall Hotel. Where do we start though with thanking Amanda & the Team for their hospitality & the work they do to ensure that your Wedding is a day to remember. From start to finish Amanda was with us & any questions or concerns we had she answered & dealt with. Being in a wheelchair as the bride I wanted a venue that would be easily accessible & not cause issues on the day. We found that straight away here & we are so happy we chose to have our Wedding here.
