My now wife and I stayed at Houndgate Townhouse after our wedding last weekend, being ideally located just metres from the registry office. We booked the bridal suite blind, more or less on a whim and weren't really expecting such a great experience. From the big, solid and very comfortable four poster bed to the luxurious walk-in shower to the free-standing bath in the bedroom (plenty big enough for two!), the room was absolutely perfect for two youngish lovebirds like ourselves. The decor was very nice indeed, both in our room and throughout the hotel, nice fancy products in the bathroom and our breakfast was delicious (excellent full English for me, eggs Benedict done to perfection for the missus). Really good communication beforehand and service to match throughout - we also had our post-wedding lunch there but I will be reviewing that under their separate restaurant listing (spoiler: that was also very good indeed). Our room was therefore discounted, we paid 125 for our suite and breakfast, I've no idea what the going rate for a bridal suite is but we both thought it was worth every penny. Many thanks to Clare, Rebecca and the team!
