My husband and I held our reception here and had a spectacular day and evening!
The staff, particular our wedding coordinator Esra, couldn't do enough to help us, and were on hand throughout the preparation process and on the day to ensure the day was special and ran smoothly. All the staff were polite and helpful, particularly the reception staff who helped both us and our guests with any and every enquiry with a smile on their face.
The set up of the room was beautiful, and if the empty plates and comments from our guests were anything to go by, the food was delicious. The same goes for the breakfast the morning after - lovely!
Our party was in the bar until very late in the evening/early in the morning and the staff were more than happy to accomodate us. The honeymoon suite (Merton) was beautifully arranged and very very comfortable. I wish I could take that bed home with me!
The only slight downside to the service we recieved was the price of the rooms. Many of our guests ended up staying in other hotels due to the fact that, even with the discount afforded to us for the wedding party, staying at the hotel was incredibly expensive. It's a real shame as the entirety of our wedding party was travelling from out of the area, and all would have loved to stay at the hotel. If the rooms were just slightly cheaper, we'd have sold the place out!
Overall though this is a minor quibble. The Cotswold Lodge was a brilliant wedding venue and the whole wedding party was delighted with the experience. If we ever renew our vows, the Cotswold Lodge will be the first place we call!
