“Fantastic Dream Wedding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2013

We attended a wedding on 8/6/13. From the moment we arrived at the hotel the staff where outside to great us to guide us where to park as to not ruin photos later. We were then shown where to go to meet other guests. The Staff were attentive and friendly for the whole day. The wedding breakfast was served seamlessly, and the food was amazing. A great wedding and I would highly recommend Stower Grange to anyone and for any occasion.

Room Tip: We attended a wedding but did not stay over so unfortunetly cannot comment on the rooms

we spent the night at this little gem of a hotel after a family wedding, the bedroom was amazing,all named after herbs, the huge bed was so comfy and we had a lovely nights sleep. The wedding was seamless from ceremony to wedding breakfast to evening celebration.The staff were friendly and very hard working . The food was excellent and the welcoming cocktail was to good.Would love to return one day.

Room Tip: The wedding party took over the whole hotel and we all loved our rooms.

This is a really good family run hotel 6 miles from Norwich city centre. Excellent food both in the evening and cooked breakfast. Decor a bit basic but comfortable rooms and bed, both of which are more important. All the staff were great and couldn't have been more helpful. Highly recommended.

We have just had our civil ceremony at Stower Grange on 27/4/13 and the experience was exemplary. From the first moment we met the staff we were perfectly looked after and the whole planning of the day was made stress free by the fantastic people there, especially Richard and Sally. The day itself was amazing - food, service, rooms - nothing was too much for them and all the staff on the day were great. I would highly recommend the evening food - this was commented on by all our guests as incredible (Morrocan lamb wraps and fillet steak baguettes!). The drink prices were very reasonable and room prices were extremely competitive. Each room is individual with variations in size and amenities so we were able to pick rooms suitable for our guests.

However, please don't only consider Stower for weddings - the room, breakfast and service were fantastic even without the wedding. Norwich city centre is about £10 in a taxi from the hotel so very easy access to the city (our guests commented very good point about hotel). We will certainly be coming back for a meal on another occasion.

Thanks to Stower for an amazing time!
Gary and Joe

My husband, son and myself attended a wedding there . Stower Grange ensured it was a wonderful day. The hotel is an ideal settings. The room for the ceremony looked wonderful. The food was superb. Good quality and portion size. All the staff were helpful, polite and friendly. Nothing too much trouble. Clean toilets all day. A nice quiet bar to chat in when you needed a rest from dancing. We didn't stay there but people who did said the rooms were lovely with a delicious breakfast. Thank you Stower Grange for making a special day even more special.

We recently hosted our wedding reception at Stower Grange on 16th March, 2013 and the hotel and the staff all contributed to make our day just 'perfect'. We were so well looked after from the very first occasion we visited the hotel to view it as a potential wedding venue to the moment we departed on the following morning having been served a lovely full English breakfast with family and friends. The attention to detail sets this hotel apart from any other we have experienced in the area. There is a very relaxed country-house feel to this hotel yet it is conveniently located just outside of the suburbs of Norwich. The ambience, staff, food and overall experience was exceptional and our guests enjoyed a particularly comfortable and memorable afternoon and evening. The wedding reception itself was perfect, the room was beautifully decorated, exactly as we had asked, the locally sourced food was well cooked and presented and the staff could not have been more attentive. A special mention to the owners Jane and Richard Fallon and to Richard the manager who helped to make our special day one that we shall always cherish.

We attended my mother's 80th birthday but did not stay the night. A relative did stay and said her room was wonderful. The ambience, staff, food and overall experience was exceptional and our party enjoyed a very comfortable and memorable afternoon and evening. We were well looked after, the food was presented with style the staff could not have been more attentive.
