    We got married at the Southgate Hotel in March and the venue is absolutely beautiful. The rooms are so lovely, especially the bridal suite. The day went smoothly and the guests really enjoyed themselves. The food and set up were amazing. It couldn't have gone better!

  • Hazel Cook

    I would like to say a massive thank you to Southgate Hotel. They were more than amazing. I got married on the 3rd March 2018 and the day was almost ruined by the snow. Lots of my guests were trapped due to the bad weather. The hotel were very kind and generous and let me celebrate again 4 weeks later with the guests who were unable to come. They were all very lovely and professional. I want to give a big thank you to Jo, Sammy and Amy but everyone was brilliant. Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart.
