“Thank you for our perfect wedding!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

We got married at Waterton on 25/4/2014 and it was 100% Perfect. The venue is fantastic, with stunning scenery but what makes this place really special is the staff. From the 1st time we walked in and met with Amy one of the wedding coordinators we were impressed and for the 12 months of planning this only continued. Customer Service is second to none, nothing is too much trouble.

Throughout the process we dealt with both Amy and Pauline and both were fantastic, they always left me feeling that everything was under control. They know what they are doing and can be trusted! At the actual wedding, the other staff we met were all the same, everyone you walk past greets you with a smile. They make you feel really special.

We arrived the night before and had a table booked in Charlie Bar for a relaxed meal. The bar was extremely busy with it being a lovely sunny day. The table was delayed which was not a issue for us as we were all excited and chatting away, enjoying catching. Due to the delay of the table the hotel gave us 2 complimentary bottles of wine with our meal. This wasn’t necessary as were not upset by it but I do feel it is testament to their commitment to exceptional service.

I stayed overnight with my Bridesmaids in the large family room in the modern part of the hotel. It has 2 double beds and a bed settee. This was the perfect room to get ready in. It has a large dining table which meant we could have room service breakfast and there was room for us all to get ready to our hairdresser and makeup artist. Lovely room.

The day itself ran very smoothly and as far as I am aware there were no hiccups! They are very organised and think of everything.

The food was fantastic throughput, the meal in Charlie's Bar, room service breakfast, the wedding breakfast for 80 and breakfast the following morning - all exceptional with no complaints. At breakfast the next morning they even served my new husband and I heart shaped toast!!! It is these small and considerate touches that make all the difference.

All our guests commented on the venue, the staff and the location, everyone thought the place was an amazing find.

What else can I say other than Thank you to Waterton for the most perfect day and awesome memories to last a life time. We will see you soon for our anniversary if not before!!
A special thanks goes to Pauline and Amy as well - the best wedding coordinators ever!!!!!

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights on a B&B basis while attending a wedding here. A beautiful building in a great location. The service was fantastic from chambermaids to restaurant and bar staff. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

We booked this place 2 years in advance for our wedding after falling in love with it. The grounds are so beautiful and our wedding pictures are looking amazing. All our guests complimented how gorgeous the place is and the guests that stayed over night were very impressed with the rooms, as were we with the bridal suite. We did have a few guests comment about the wedding food not being to the best standard e.g wedding breakfast, chicken was quite dry and evening reception food was poor quality so was a little dissapointed. But overall the day was lovely. The little touches made our stay special such as the heart shaped toast at breakfast the next morning. Would definitely recommend for any future brides and grooms.

Needed access for M62/A1M for an early start so chose the Waterton Park Hotel after managing to secure a family room for £90.00 instead of the £175.00 suggested rate
What a result!
Room is very spacious with two large double beds, bathroom also excessive in room.
Grounds stunning and all in all excellent value for money.
Can see exactly why you would choose this as a venue of choice if tying the knot.
Highly recommended especially if you get an excellent rate as I did

Room Tip: Room 61 double family room. Plenty of space

I went to a wedding here at the beginning of August. We did not stay in the hotel but just visited for the day.
The venue is lovely. There is a moat around the wedding venue which allows for beautiful photos.
The room where the speeches took place is a nice size and can be spilt into two for a more intimate setting. The food was brilliant. Really tartly and plenty of it.
The evening part of the wedding was held in a different room which was down stairs. This was a very nice sized room, that had a bar, seating and room for a DJ and dance floor.
To the rear of this room there are two patio doors that open onto a decked area that allows guests to sit outside and take in the beautiful views.
Over all a lovely lovely wedding venue. One to consider.
