My daughter had her wedding reception at this hotel, The staff, in particular, Kate the wedding organiser, was lovely, very professional and helpful. We organised champagne and canopies on arrival, I was very impressed as I thought there would be a limit but they kept bringing out more canopies. Then we had the evening reception with a buffet, which was absolutely marvellous, There are several choices, but you can mix and match to suit. They organised the DJ for us. We made several trips to the hotel to ask about the table arrangements. At the last minute we asked if we could use the upper floor room for when the guests arrived as we felt we wanted to split the day. This was easily accepted by Kate. Also there was an outdoor balcony for the smokers, All in all it was a perfect day, I would thoroughly recommend Durley Dean. My daughter did not get married there but you can get married there if you want to,

“Great wedding venue”
My husband and I had our wedding 27th sept. Fantastic day, very helpful/friendly staff that made the day run smoothly. Excellent food at the wedding breakfast. Could of had a card machine in the bar down stairs but other than that it was brilliant, never going to forget it. Would definitely recommend having a wedding at The Durley Dean.
