The Georgian Ballroom, with high ceilings and ornate chandeliers is an elegant and traditional room for a ceremony. The aisle leads up to a beautiful Georgian archway underneath which the ceremony takes place. This suite is part of the grade II listing of the hotel, its architectural features provide outstanding photo opportunities. Our St Quentin’s Suite is perfect for hosting your Wedding breakfast. with its beautiful private courtyard giving a beautiful back drop for your day. On a pleasant day, the bi-folding doors can be opened to allow the indoor and outdoors to merge, giving an alfresco feel. The St Quentin’s Suite, on the ground floor, is a perfect suite to host 50-100 guests, and up to a maximum of 150 in the evening. Its stylish chandeliers give the room a sparkle of elegance, along with a modern twist. Its glass doors which run the entire width of the suite are bi-folding, enabling the courtyard to become part of the wedding reception suite. Our Bridal Suite is the epitome of elegance, the perfect start to married life. It is also ideal for that special occasion, or an indulgent weekend away.

This is an excellent venue for a wedding.
This is an excellent venue for a wedding. We visited in September 2023 for a friend's wedding. It is a lovely hotel in the centre of Cowbridge. The parking is very easy with a resident's car park at the rear of the property.
