My husband and I had just the most amazing day celebrating our wedding at this venue. the staff were exceptional and nothing was too much. Simone was so helpful in the planning and Becky, front of house, was just beyond amazing on the actual day. All the staff worked so hard to make our day what it was. The rooms are huge and food was just perfect. Everything I ever dreamt my wedding day would be. Thank you stoke by nayland for making our wedding day perfect.

Beautiful wedding!
SbN was the perfect venue for our big day, we had our wedding breakfast and evening reception is the Garden & Gainsborough rooms. Simone and Tommy coordinated everything absolutely perfectly and the whole day ran like clockwork! Nothing was too much trouble, and all the special little details were perfect! The meal was beautiful, 56 hot dinners all came out together with no mistakes or cold food. The waiters were fab, they checked all dietary requirements before bringing out any food and were all polite and helpful. We had such a perfect day, thank you to all at SbN, especially Simone and Tommy!

The day I dreamed of!
I would 100% recommend Stoke by Nayland hotel to my friends and family. We had the pleasure of hosting our wedding at this wonderful venue. We were sold from the initial meeting and tour with events coordinator Simone. Her kindness and warmth made us sure this was the place for our wedding. The planning and help throughout was brilliant and the day was completely perfect. The events Manager Chloe was beyond incredible. She was organised, helpful and very very kind. The venue was wonderful, the staff brilliant, the food highly complimented. It was a dream day! Thank you to all involved with the Wade wedding!

The perfect day!
My husband and I got married here on 29/10/2019. It was absolutely perfect! The staff were truly amazing from the very first visit. The wedding coordinator Simone is extremely talented in her job. Nothing was too much trouble, always there to answer questions and advice. Chloe was in charge of the running of our day and I can honestly say she was amazing! Everything ran so smoothly and perfect. She went above and beyond for us, even in the cold weather so we could get the perfect pictures! We had alot of family stay at the venue and everyone has commented on how beautifully perfect it was and the amazing food. The rooms and the suites were stunning. We really didn't want to leave. We will be back very soon for a little weekend away... Thank you so much Simone, Chloe, Tommy and all the amazing bar staff. Our wedding was perfect because of all your hard work!! Love the newlyweds.. Mr and Mrs Kerr x

Simply perfect!
Our wedding day was made special from day one! We first met with Simone where she provided us some welcome gifts, walked us throughout the venue and how our day would pan out - our plans went from dreams to reality when we met with Chloe the events manager - there really wasnt anything too big or too small and was happy to make sure our day went without a single hick-up, she even gave her jacket to one of our girls during the photo-shoot as the chilly winds picked up! Perfect day made better by a perfect venue and perfect staff!! couldnt ask for more out of a dream day! would recommend to all! Mr and Mrs Eaton - xx

The perfect day!
The first time we ever stayed at Stoke by Nayland Hotel we knew that this was the place we wanted to get married... 2 years later our dream was a reality. We had a twilight wedding here last month and although everyone says it, it truly was the best day of our lives. From the start Simone was so helpful and supportive in helping us to plan the day down to the smallest details. We would also like to thank Chloe who ensured the day ran so smoothly and without any stress. We wanted a twilight wedding as we was very keen to ensure that the day had a relaxed feel to it and to also minimise any time where guests would be lingering around not knowing what was happening. As a couple that likes minimal 'fuss' this was also perfect for us both. We also chose to have a BBQ as our food option and I am so pleased we did, it was delicious and all the guests loved it! We also booked the lodges for 3 nights so was able to stay at the venue the night before the wedding, the night of and the night after. We hired all 5 so was so lucky to be able to spend that time with our family and friends and making so many special memories we will never forget. Altogether I cannot thank SBN, Simone and Chloe enough for ensuring that we had the most wonderful day. I could not have wished for anything more... only to be able to do it all over again!
