I was married here on 19th July. It was a beautiful day (we were lucky with the weather) and we had a really fabulous wedding there. All the guests I spoke to were also really happy with the hotel.
We chose the Taplow firstly because it was near our Church and then mainly because of the space available - it was the right size for our envisaged number of guests and it has a beautiful garden with historic old trees in it, on a slope which gives the hotel a lovely aspect as you come up the drive. It also has a good choice of rooms. There's an attractive room for the reception and a separate dance floor area (this room is also used to conduct weddings), as well as an outdoor terrace or you can hire the more modern Cellar Bar with an attractive arched stone ceiling. The place also has a really cosy, friendly feel to it. The staff are very accommodating and flexible. We changed our table plans a few times in the run- up to the wedding and we even changed the menu a little. The chef was very amenable to doing this and many of our guests commented on how good the food was. Our wedding co-ordinator, Gabrielle, was great - really friendly and ever-patient with us - you really get the feeling that she enjoys her job.
If you want to get married or have a reception at a very reasonably priced (and it is if you book the package we did - we did an awful lot of research before we chose it), cosy, flexible and friendly hotel with a lovely indoor and outdoor space - good for summer or winter weddings I imagine - this is the place for you.
The rooms are pleasant - decorated in an old Georgian style. I stayed in two of the suites there and they were both very nice. All our guests who had rooms were very happy! One little niggle however - the air-conditioning was not working in my room and as the Bride this wasn't ideal. Everyone else staying there I spoke to (and we had nearly half the rooms booked) said that theirs was, so at least they were okay.
However, the staff were great (friendly and efficient), the DJ (included in our package and supplied by a company the hotel recommends) was also very good and Gabrielle was fantastic. Our guests were also able to drink outside after midnight. Thank you very much Taplow!
