“Warning!!!! Total disorganisation on our Wedding day”

Haldon Belvedere (Lawrence Castle)
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

It upsets me to say this as this was meant to be a thoroughly happy day BUT.....

1) the organisers were unable to return telephone calls in a timely manner. Therefore we had to back up every phone call with an email.

2) when trying to organise caterers, we returned our menu choice via email and discussed this over the phone twice.
To weeks later following a futher phone call to chase up what was happening, we were told the caterers were unable to provide our food.

3) staff were rude on several occations to our friends. They made cutting remarks which upset several grown ups!!! (Who do not normally take offence at petty issues)

Overall i really feel that the organisers would be better placed retiring from this job. They made the whole event very stressful as they can not be trusted to remain professional and they certainly cannot be left to organise anything for you.

The venue is gorgeous but if i were to have my wedding day again i would have to AVOID this venue due to the stress and up set caused by its helpers!!! Jo T

Everything about this place was wonderful. Fantastic views, lovely room and excellent pub nearby (the ribs at the Nobody Inn are amazing!).
If you can't manage the 80 odd steps up to the room then look elsewhere. If you can then go for it!

Just back from a lovely Devon break and on one of the nights we stayed at Lawrence Castle. Wow - the apartment is at the top of the tower - you bring in your own supplies (there is a fully fitted kitchen) or eat at one of the very good local restaurants. We picked up lovely cheeses/ charcuterie and wine from Darts in Exeter. A truly unique experience. A stunning setting - we watched the sun set with a glass of wine and even the slight devon drizzle couldn't dampen our spirits! A fantastic treat to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We will definitely be returning. Lovely couple who look after the apartment - couldn't have been more helpful.

What a lovely place. A fasinating triangler castle. The grounds are lovely with picnic tables available outside. The views were stunning all around.
Only downside it is only open sundays and bank holiday mondays.
I did not get to see inside but loved being there so went twice :)
