“The place to have your wedding! Such down to earth friendly staff!!!!!”
Reviewed 21 July 2009

I just wanted to say that our stay at Taplow house for a friends wedding in July 2009 was really good. The staff made the stay really comfortable and enjoyable. The name of the person on reception was Ana, she was especially kind, fun and accommodating. The wedding reception went so smoothly, the staff really knew what they were doing. It was very impressive!

The staff keep their upper lips tense in the British way and really do try their best, but are fighting a losing battle. Several people stood out, including Kimberly and Ewa, although none of the staff was even average or below. The facility, though, has seen better days pass into history. Many of the rooms are tiny and make it difficult to even move around. There are little gnats or something that find their way into the rooms in the evening, even with the window closed. Some members of our party had to change rooms for various malfunctions and problems. The hotel is big on weddings, and there were several during my stay there. I'm sure the staff creates a memorable event, and in the excitement of the moment you can probably overlook quite a bit.

My son and daughter in law were married on 29th May 2009 and the reception was booked at the Taplow House Hotel. It was a fabulous reception..the hotel setting and grounds are beautiful and look really good in the wedding pictures. The meal was first class as was the service from ALL the waiting staff, who were friendly and very attentive.
The meal was held in spendid surroundings. The evening 'do' was in a cellar underneath the hotel reminiscent of the Beatles Cavern club, and there is a comfortable area set aside for oldies so they don't get their eardrums damaged.
We did find the drinks expensive so be ready for this and the hotel rooms were out of our budget but for those people who are better off than us I'm sure they would have a very pleasant stay here. All in all, I can't fault this hotel for the great efforts they made in ensuring that the wedding was one to remember!! Thank you Talow House Hotel!!

Taplow House is an elegant hotel set in lovely grounds. It was the venue of the wedding of my son and his fiance, and from beginning to end it was a perfect day. The Wedding Co-ordinator, Vicky Hillier, was exceptional in her organisation and personal attention, and made the day the success it was. The ceremony and dining rooms were a credit to the staff, whose service was efficient and friendly, supervised by a very capable restaurant manageress, and the meal itself was beautifully presented and prepared by an obviously very able chef. Even the breakfast the following morning was of excellent quality.

I would recommend this hotel to any couple who are seeking a venue for their wedding.

This was my neice's wedding and she and and her fiance chose Taplow House Hotel as their venue. It proved to be an excellent decision in all respects.

We were impressed as soon as we entered the spacious grounds, there was plenty of convenient parking and reception staff made us feel very welcome from the outset. The hotel used its beautifully decorated public rooms to very good effect with arriving guests able to mingle informally before the ceremony.

Well-placed mirrors ensured that all guests could see the bride and groom clearly as the marriage ceremony took place. Afterwards we enjoyed the champagne reception on the terrace overlooking the beautiful mature grounds while the wedding photographs were being taken on the lawns below.

The wedding breakfast, for over 70 guests, demonstrated the hotel's ability to offer the highest levels of cuisine together with a discreet silver service and splendid wines. As the day slipped into evening the ambiance of the 'nightclub' on the lower level ensured that guests were able to 'dance the night away' while well-staffed and courteous bar staff provided ed a very efficient service. Later, an imaginative, and freshly prepared, late night buffet reflected the high quality of the earlier wedding breakfast.

The professionalism of the service even included an 'emergency overnight cleaning' of my white linen jacket which was accidently stained with red wine. It is this attention to even the smallest detail that gives this hotel this review.

If there is is any criticism, it could be that our overnight room was small but then, we did book the lowest price room! Even so, the duvet and bed linen were absolutely sumptuous and friends who had booked a suite were very well satisfied with their facilities - and they own a small 5* guest house themselves!

Overall, we had nothing but praise for what was, in our experience, the best wedding we have ever attended.

We attended a wedding at Taplow House Hotel and were very impressed by the smooth operation, good food (difficult for large parties) and quality of venue. The formal proceedings were very professionally executed and the wedding party were revitalised and enthused by the evening disco being transferred down to the 'club', vaulted basement area. The staff were excellent, the reception and staff ensured our room was ready for early arrival and even attempted to resusitate our friend's wine-besodden white jacket!
Our only suggestion would be that they advise the wedding organisers to have an earliest start time of 2.30pm as the room check-in is 2.00pm - most people who have travelled from such places as south africa, ireland, wales, etc. do not wish to change in a public toilet, nor do they wish to travel those distances in their wedding finery.

The total experience was enjoyable and nothing was too much trouble for Sam, Olivia and their staff.
The food was superb and the environment absolutely perfect. We would have no hesitation in recommending Taplow House and its facilities.
The location was fantastic!
Thank you for making our special day so perfect.
