"Ellenborough Park was the most beautiful setting for our wedding day. Every member of the team went above and beyond and we really felt safe in their experienced hands. We wouldn't change a thing about our day - it was so magical!"


We would like to thank you most sincerely for making sure everything was absolutely perfect for our Wedding on May 1st 2023. The venue was stunning (even in the drizzle), the actual room looked amazing with the flowers and furniture, the staff throughout the hotel were courteous, polite and nothing was too much trouble for them and the food was absolutely delicious. The canapés were to die for and the roast beef was so succulent and tender. Fantastic choices! From our first meeting I was confident that you would deliver everything possible to make this a memorable day for us and we were not disappointed. Your kindness, attention to detail and genuine desire to host an unforgettable day were evident and very much appreciated. We could not have chosen a better venue. Ellenborough Park is a stunning hotel that delivers the very best and we cannot thank Lisa and her whole team enough for making our day so very special.


what an absolutely AMAZING day we had. Everything we had planned was executed beyond our wildest dreams, and I can honestly say that It was the most magical and happiest day of our lives. I knew it was going to be fabulous, but you and your teams surpassed our expectations and we were quite literally blown away by how the day was run.
David – you are an absolute asset to the hotel and we really, really hope that you’re recognized as such. We have had friends and family constantly telling us how amazing you are… you literally didn’t sit down and ran from one place to another to get things done correctly and on time, and all with such a great sense of humour and such a wonderful attitude. You made our day perfect, honestly.
