I recently had my wedding at offley place and it was my dream venue, I love the building and the grounds and 100% wanted my wedding to be hosted there. It was a massive disappointment on arrival at offley on my wedding day to find that my room wasn't ready for me to get dressed in with my bridesmaids. This had been planned months in advance and they knew my time of arrival but it was still being cleaned. Then my future husband arrived too and I had to hide in one of the reception rooms because not one member of staff was helpful enough to sort this problem out. This added stress which was not welcome on my wedding day, bad planning on their behalf!
My wedding went smoothly apart from the bad wedding food, again this was disappointing. Everyone's potato fondant was raw!!
The next day at breakfast myself and all of my guests who had payed to stay at offley were very upset with the service ( or lack of it) there was one member of staff serving, taking orders and cooking! We all had to wait 50 mins to an hour for our substandard breakfasts! The waiter was rude when anybody asked for more toast etc...
All in all it was an upsetting end to my wedding. I emailed the wedding coordinators to air my disappointments but know body bothered to reply or acknowledge my email! Offley place it's self is beautiful but the staff and food let it down. My husband and myself are very upset that we won't be able to go back to where our married life started as we were looking forward to having our wedding anniversary back there.
