“Fantastic Wedding Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2012

Briiliant venue for our wedding. Everything was perfect. The staff couldn't have been more attentive and the food was fantastic. Even the 'foodies' who were there complimented the food.
Would definitely recommend it as a venue and guests enjoyed it all so much they've asked us to repeat the whole thing for one of our wedding anniversaries!

Thank you for your lovely comments on TripAdvisor regarding your wedding back in September. It's good to know that the 'foodies' and all your guests enjoyed your well planned wedding breakfast. As you know the wedding packages we do here are totally bespoke to every wedding. So you have to take some of the credit for your wedding day being made so special by ourselves.
I look forward to planning a similar event for your wedding anniversary!!!
Thank you once again.
Kind Regards

We attended a wedding at Briars Hall. On arrival we checked in and the bedrooms were reasonably priced however they were dated and needed updating. Furniture etc and bedding just all a little tired. However the wedding rooms were excellent and I was so surprised at the food during the wedding breakfast it was excellent which you often don't get at a wedding when large numbers are catered for. There was also ample food but all of good quality. nyone looking for a wedding venue I would recommend only thing that stopped me rating 5* was the hotel room.

Hi, thank you for your comments. I am pleased that you enjoyed the wedding you attended in December. We do pride ourselves on the quality of our food for weddings and mass catering. As for the bedroom being tired, I can only think that you were allocated one of the three bedrooms that were not refurbished last year. Of the 24 bedrooms we have 21 were refurbished and look quite modern. We do get a lot of compliments about these rooms. So I apologize about that.
I look forward to seeing you again in the near future.
Kind Regards

Stayed here last night for new years eve celebrations. In a word fantastic. Hotel a lovely country house, staff, service, food, accommodation spot on. The new years eve the best I have ever spent. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and although place was busy food was superb. Food in bar and drinks reasonably priced. Breakfast this morning was freshly cooked to order. A great stay

I booked Briars Hall for New Year not knowing what to expect. We have been away for New year twice before, but this was our first time at Briars Hall and we definately were not disappointed. The rooms were lovely and clean + comfortable and had everything that you might need. We had a great time in the evening, the food and Entertainment where Fantastic and if you asked the Staff for anything nothing was too much trouble.
I would like to take this opportunity to Thank everyone at Briars Hall for making our stay one to remember.

Well what can we say..??? Apart from a big thank you! We had our wedding at Briars Hall on Tuesday 27th Dec 11 and it was perfect! Nothing was too much trouble from the first time we met Mark to set a date, then all the help from Paul, Karen inbetween, and then Billy and Kev on the day! Everyone enjoyed the day from the food to the rooms! As one guest said ' if this place cant please you then your not worth pleasing!!' We think that says it all! Thanks again Briars Hall for such a wonderful day!
Anthony and Diane White.
