  • Sarah and Matt

    We had our wedding at Makeney Hall Hotel and the staff were absolutely fantastic. We couldn't have asked for more, nothing was too much trouble at all. Steve in particular was amazing on the day, he truly stood out and went out of his way to make sure everything went smoothly and me and my husband were happy. Chloe was amazing through the planning and the build up to the big day - it wouldn't have been the best day of our lives without the help from Makeney Hall. Thank you so much!

  • Katie and Sam

    My partner and I got married at Makeney Hall Hotel and it was the best day ever. From the initial enquiry to the day itself, the wedding team were superb. No tasks too small, no question too silly. Antonia and Stacey really looked after us and were very accommodating with our special requests. The woodland gardens is the perfect place to say 'I Do' and a great location to capture beautiful wedding photos. An extra special touch for us was to have our beloved dog Hunter present on the day. Thank you once again for a truly magical day and we can't wait to visit over the years and see our dedicated tree blossom. We would highly recommend this venue to anybody who is looking for their perfect wedding - the staff really do go the extra mile.

  • Laura and Tom

    My husband and I got married at Makeney Hall Hotel and our wedding day was beyond perfect. The staff are there to help you every step of the way, we had the most perfect day with no hiccups at all. From the moment I arrived to the end of our amazing day was without a doubt perfect. The food is superb, service exceptional, it couldn't have been any better. We would really recommend Makeney Hall Hotel for a wedding to anyone. Thanks again.

  • Louise and Darren

    We booked our wedding here at Makeney Hall and from the first time we met Chloe we felt really relaxed and she helped us with all our plans. On our big day she calmed my nerves and was with me right till the start of the ceremony which I really appreciated.

    The day went well - everything went to plan and was all organised for us. I would recommend the outdoor woodland area I wasn't sure at first in case the weather was bad. Looking back now even if it had been bad weather the woodland area is still a magical place. Chloe is an amazing person and we were so happy she got to spend our special day with us. Thank you Makeney Hall for a lovely day.
