“Perfect wedding”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

We are a more mature couple and wanted a nice wedding in a lovely setting for about 70 people. Staff helped us make choices - we wanted to be fairly informal - and were very helpful on the day. Everything went perfectly. We were lucky that, for November, the day was sunny and bright with not a cloud in the sky. We had a photo session by the fountain in the grounds and even got rainbows in our photos! Many people commented afterwards that it one of the best weddings they had ever been to.

Our daughter and son-in-law had her wedding at Horsley Lodge and it was a beautiful day. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and went the extra mile and seemed to know what we needed before we did. They were very accommodating and helped plan our stay at Horsley to the finest detail. We were allowed to check in early in the morning so we could join in the pre-wedding fun with our daughter. We were slightly concerned before we arrived as we were also there with 3 young children however the staff were great, we stayed in the De Ferrers room which has a king sized bed with a sofa bed, we also had a travel cot. There was plenty of room for all of us and when we went down to the wedding the sofa was made into a bed and small details like extra towels and cups were ready and waiting for the childrens bath and bedtime when we retired after the wedding. Staff had even tidied the room and put the childrens toys away, we were really looked after. The wedding day was perfect and the staff worked very hard to make sure everyone was having a good time and needed for nothing. The breakfast was excellent and staff were very good at offering an alternative for the children. A wonderful wedding and a relaxing stay over, we will definately be coming back.

We decided to hold a family Sunday lunch to celebrate our fiftieth wedding anniversary, from moment we booked our day, Horsley Lodge and its staff were extremely helpful, and on the day they didn't disappoint, the room presentation was first class, service was excellent, and the menu and quality of the food top notch. We had a truly wonderful experience which our families sharing with us the moment and occasion. Without hesitation I would recommend Horsley Lodge to anyone.

visited this hotel for a family wedding and I have to say that it impressed me right from the start. Staff very helpful and on the ball and the setting was just stunning. The food was exceptional and very good quality. My only regret was that I didn't stay overnight, but the twelve hours I did spend there were very pleasant and I shall add this to my list of retreats.

I stayed here overnight after attending a wedding. I got an early check in and a room upgrade free of charge. The receptionist (Claire) was so pleasant and helpful that I knew I would enjoy my stay right from the start.

The room was great, very comfortable and with a fine view of the golf course. The wedding was so well organised that Horsley Lodge even arranged for the rain to stop for the photo's. Not bad for mid October.

The wedding buffet was lovely, with plenty of hot food and lots of pudding and cake. There was even a good real ale (I'm a member of CAMRA and can be a bit fussy). Everyone had a great time.

All in all, this is a great wedding venue and a delightful place to stay.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good. just be aware that this is a listed building with thick walls. Phone and w...

A delight to read your positive comments about your stay. My receptionists will
always upgrade FREE if a room is available, (as I mentioned 4 reviews down)
and I'm glad you spotted that we have a range of well kept real ales for even the fussiest CAMRA
member.
I'm sure CAMRA can safely say its done what it set out to achieve, the country is awash with micro breweries!
