Wedding testimonials

"We wanted to say a massive 'Thank You' for making our Wedding Day, a day that we will both remember always. From the moment we came to The Elvetham for our first visit in June 2014, to the day after our wedding in April 2016, we couldn't fault the service or staff...Everything was seamless and nothing was too much trouble, which meant we could enjoy the build-up and the day itself. We have already recommended The Elvetham to our network of family, friends and colleagues, as it is an incredible venue and one to hold a wedding at! We would love to do it all over again."

Mr & Mrs Turner

"Thank you ever so much for all your help in organising our wedding day, we genuinely had the most amazing day and feel it couldn’t have gone better! The team that supported us on the day did a fantastic job keeping everyone in check and making sure we were happy with everything. Thank you again for all your help."

Mr & Mrs Temple

"We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding the best day of our lives! The service we received at every stage has been exceptional and special thanks must go to Andrew and his team for going above and beyond the call of duty to sort out an external issue. We have received nonstop compliments from family and friends and this is due to the beautiful hotel and fabulous staff."

Mr & Mrs Bartholomew

"Thank you so very much to all the team at The Elvetham for a truly wonderful day. From our first visit last November, when we stood in the Oak room and visualised the ceremony, we knew that this was a first class venue. Along with ourselves, ALL our guest were hugely impressed with the hotel and stunning grounds...Throughout the whole day the staff were always on hand and nothing was too much trouble. We met with you a few times leading up to the big day and always left feeling we were in safe hands. We will always be grateful to you all at The Elvetham for what I think was the perfect day!"

Mr & Mrs J.K. Muiron

"A massive thank you to yourself and each and every member of the Elvetham staff involved in our wedding yesterday. We had the most fantastic day, it couldn't have been any better. All of the staff members were brilliant and so attentive to us, I really cannot thank you all enough. Lots of my guests also commented on how fantastic the service was from the venue and the food was also amazing."

Private events testimonials

"We have visited here many times for breakfast and enjoyed three wedding receptions. We decided to celebrate my birthday this week on Tuesday evening. They were so attentive. Emma the chef put herself out by piping happy birthday on a plate filling it with chocolates and fruit, amazing. Also, the service was excellent thanks to Sue. The food was cooked so well, good portions, even a good amount of vegetables, lovingly presented. Very good value for money.What we like is having something cooked for us that we would not make at home. Will be going again soon."


"Held an event here (1.5 days) in January. Beautiful venue with helpful and friendly staff. Very pleased with the standard of the facilities, service and the food; especially for an event for over 100 people. I would certainly recommend it for business or personal events."


Corporate events testimonials

"The meeting room was excellent (as were the pastries) with great natural light, fresh air and the magnetic walls invaluable. Every member of staff we encountered was friendly and helpful - we even spoke to the maintenance man in the church who provided great insight on the history of the building. The catering team should also be congratulated on the excellent variety and standard of food produced. I know several of the group are hoping to visit again on a personal basis and I am certainly one of them!"

Gas and engineering company

"I stay here a few nights a month on business trips. The refurbished rooms are stunning, the hotel grounds are out of this world, and the breakfast is by far the best hotel breakfast I’ve ever eaten. Great for work or a romantic break."


"The day was just perfect. Everyone has said that it’s the best regional event that they have been to. The food, the décor, the staff, the organisation was just perfect. Special thanks to Ant, who was wonderful. He could not have done more for us yesterday and I really, appreciate it."

General groceries outlet

"Elvetham was excellent! The staff were incredible: very attentive, observant and looking for anything that could go wrong. Regardless of who you spoke with they were always willing to help and nothing was any trouble. We’d definitely recommend this place for future events. If we had good weather at Elvetham on another occasion it would be great to request a BBQ in the lovely grounds one evening."

Accommodation testimonials

"Beautiful rooms, smart en suite bathrooms, comfortable beds, located within an impressive historic building and extensive, stunning, landscaped grounds. I enjoyed a wonderful walk, taking in the autumnal colours and being eyeballed by cows in the adjacent fields. Breakfast in the conservatory was lovely, the sun was shining through and, again, the quality of the breakfast was first class. I would not hesitate to stay again and would refer tourists to this hotel, for its history, decor and service."

Mrs Jo J

"We held our 30th Wedding Anniversary at the Elvetham and had the most wonderful celebration with 100+ guests. Everything was first class. The staff at the hotel are super helpful and friendly with nothing too much trouble and always sensitive to our requirements. The food was exceptionally good and all of our guests heaped praise on the standards produced. The accommodation is lovely and in keeping with the building's history. The grounds are a must see and walk, truly magnificent. Just the most wonderful, memorable and fitting experience."

Mr Degan

Christmas Testimonials

"All of us really enjoyed the whole evening, would even say it was our best one. The drive up to the hall with all the Christmas lights made it feel very special."

"The Elvetham enabled us to use their beautiful space to create a unique, memorable and personal event that still has people talking and reminiscing a month after the event took place. Our Snowflake themed fundraising ball was made all the more magical by the beautiful surroundings, the stunning Christmas decorations and the invisibly efficient and easily accessible staff on the night, without whom I would not have found the evening as smooth and enjoyable as I did. The whole team were beyond brilliant."

"Amazing atmosphere throughout the night and the staff were very helpful. The father Christmas greeter was also a lovely touch."
