Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our wedding at Lakeside Venue was amazing, Louise couldn’t have been more helpful, making sure everything went smoothly, taking our theme and running with it to make an absolutely stunning setup and keeping us calm when plans had to change due to an unexpected storm....We had a hog roast which was delicious and went down a treat with our guests. We were looked after from planning all the way to picking up our things after the event. We would highly recommend the venue to anyone planning their wedding, big or small, traditional or quirky, these guys have you covered!More

We attended the venue for a wedding on 26/08/2024 and I must say, it was amazing! Louise and staff went above and beyond to make sure the day went perfect and that it did…we attended a wedding there many years ago and what a difference...the venue is now,so perfect in every way,1 very small downfall that there’s no draft alcohol as many like a good pint. This venue id highly recommend if your looking for a wedding venue,Louise give yourself a Pat on the back as it’s amazing 👌🏼More

For anyone looking for a beautiful venue in the heart of the South Wales countryside look no further! The venue is incredible with options for both Indoor and Outdoor ceremonies and then provides the option to party the night away in a Grand Marquee. The...venue is stunning but the highlight for us was the venues Wedding Co- ordinator/ fairy godmother Louise! She went above and beyond for us and you can tell that this is her life not a job! She understood how we wanted the venue dressed and ran with it taking all the stress off us and made it more beautiful than I could have imagined. She was always on the end of the line and willing to meet up as many times as we needed. She has become family to us and anyone wanted a stress free wedding needs this venue and Louise! It’s a dog friendly venue and although there is no accommodation on site there are plenty of options near by and Louise has the links to help you out with the accommodation and transportation. All the staff were incredible and everyone said this was the best wedding they have ever been too! Thank you lakeside for allowing me to be a Lakeside bride ❤️More

Well, what can I say about Lakeside and Louise. Our day was perfect. Everything was absolutely gorgeous and both of us was treated with absolute care, consideration and attentiveness. Louise is a complete 10 out of 10. Her eye for detail is impeccable. We couldn’t...of done our day without her. She became more than our wedding co-ordinator, she became a close friend. The venue itself is perfect for a family orientated wedding, which is exactly what we wanted. We had countless compliments about how stunning the marquee and deck marquee was set up for the wedding and the reception. We couldn’t of asked for a better venue and better staff to share our day with. Thank you Lakeside & Louise and her team.More

The biggest thank you ever goes to Louise for everything she done for me and still now puts up with me 🥰 planning a wedding during a pandemic was a crazy idea but Louise made it such an easy experience for us. nothing was ever...to big of an ask and she would go out of her way to make things as easy as possible for us. Louise done an amazing job, and I will be forever grateful for how amazing the venue was. I gave her free reign and just said I wanted a more rustic look, and the rest is all down to her. me an my husband more or less just had to turn up on the day, which was perfect for me because I have no idea what or where to have even begun. How bloody amazing does this look though? Louise will now always be part of our lives ❤️More

OMG. A very special day made magical by the owner and her team. The weather was perfect, seating and setting was exquisite. The venue is stunning with panaromic views and gorgeous facilities. Everything went like clockwork from arrival to departure. My daughter was supposed to...get married last year but COVID stopped it. Louise pulled every stop out to make her day perfect. The food was delicious and plentyful. Celiac and vegan were catered for and the deserts were scrumptious. Everyone was welcomed warmly and all the staff walked the extra mile. Friendly, curtious professional through and through. So we have had a jumping over the broomstick wedding last year, the official bit 2021 and next year a full on party back at Lakeside. I like be the location and we are really looking forward to a anniversary party to match the memorable wedding. Thank you so much for making it so spectacular. Xx. Diane XXXMore

What an amazing wedding venue!! A hidden gem within the most beautiful settings and breathtaking views from every angle. Louise and the team strive for perfection which shows in every wedding I've had the pleasure of being part of. The grounds are spotless, the venues...are maintained to a high standard and always made to feel so welcome.
