“Friend's Wedding”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

I stayed at Morley Hayes Hotel during a friend's wedding which was held in one of the rooms at Morley Hayes. Morley Hayes were faultless in their handling of the wedding and the service I received as a guest at the hotel was exceptional. The rooms were very comfortable and breakfast was excellent.

The whole experience was fantastic and I would recommend anyone to have their wedding there or even just stay in the hotel.

We recently held our wedding reception at Morley Hayes and had the most magical day, it was a small family wedding and we all had the best afternoon ever. Each member of staff we had the pleasure to meet was friendly and nothing was too much trouble. From the initial enquiry, to being met on the day, the fabulous food and the attentive staff, not to mention the fantastic Christmas decorations all went towards creating that magical atmosphere.
We stayed overnight in the hotel and wow what a fantastic room, we were blown away by it and the breakfast the following morning was excellent along with the menu choice and food, not to mention the staff.
We had wonderful comments from our guests the following day about the venue and food which
just shows what a great venue this is,

New Year at Morley Hayes was as expected. Good food and spectacular fireworks at midnight. Plenty of parking and no crammed in as some hotels do.
Would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a celebration without constant loud music and people pushing past. Dancing if wanted was in the next room. You could hear each other speak and the whole evening was most enjoyable.

My wife myself and a couple of friends attended the New Years Eve party and was wowed by the venue and by the stunning Christmas lights, as we drove in.
We had the buffett meal, the food was excellent and plentiful, whilst eating our food,we had the pieprs come, which added to the atmosphere of the night, the bar staff were excellent and to top it all was the great finale,"The Fireworks" What an extravaganza, no expense spared regarding the fireworks. A massive well done to the hotel and organisers. I will look forward to coming next year

Yet another wonderful New Years Eve celebration. This was our 5th time in a row at this venue and although we were in a different room to the one we normally have (The normal room was booked up months before) the effort that was put into the night by the staff and management was faultless. Wine was pre-ordered and waiting for us at our table in an iced bucket and the food and service was spot-on. The piper came round all the tables and the firework display was excellent and lasted for about 20 mins, just right. Hard to know were else to go that would match this great night, well done Morley Hayes.

Room Tip: Cannot comment on the rooms as we did not stay the night.

We were married and had our wedding breakfast and evening reception at this venue just prior to Christmas and it was absolutely fantastic. The whole experience from viewing and booking the venue, to organising the big day was handled efficiently, professionally and in a very friendly manner by the Morley Hayes events team, and the wedding day itself went perfectly. Everyone of our 56 guests agreed that the Secheverill suite (the room of the ceremony and wedding breakfast) looked fantastic with all the tasteful decorations, and that the food provided was lovely. We then stayed in the Penthouse suite for the night and this room was one of the best hotel rooms we have ever had the good fortune to stay in. It was spacious, tastefully attired and clean. We would give this venue 110 out of 100! and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a superb location for their wedding. Thank you to all at Morley Hayes.

A massive thank you to everyone at Morley Hayes for giving us an amazing wedding day. we got married on the 29th of Dec 2013, the whole venue looked fantastic with lights and decorations. We would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff involved with making our special day perfect, from the first moment we went to view, the staff were so helpful and attentive. Our MC Geoff was brilliant, organising all the staff, and the whole day flowed smoothly with no problems. We would highly recommend Morley Hayes to anyone looking to get married.
We, and some of our guests, also had rooms in their hotel....... Fantastic!
The rooms were some of the best we've stayed in ........ No. The best!
The breakfast...... gorgeous!
There's nothing else we can say. Thank you for a perfect day we shall never forget.
Colin and Shani.
