    Had a fantastic day here for my daughter's wedding. The marquee was beautiful, food excellent and thanks go to the staff and management for making the day extra special. Stayed the night in superior room which was huge and luxurious. Great breakfast and used the spa too with inside and outside pool. Would recommend this beautiful venue for a wedding or a weekend break.

    We had a truly wonderful wedding at Pontlands Park, the whole experience from the hotel staff, ceremony room, wedding breakfast with the quality of the food was superb. The reception in the evening was amazing in the marquee. We had a lovely large room which was so clean and nice to stay. We fully recommend this lovely Hotel for your wedding.

  • Rita and Tony

    My wife and I were so pleased that we chose Pontlands Park for our reception. The initial discussions with Colette Thompson, the function co-ordinator filled us with confidence as she was so helpful and her suggestions were invaluable. In the event we chose the Platinum option and were delighted with the excellent service, charming surroundings and wonderful food. Maybe fortuitous but in our discussions my wife to be asked if the Christmas decorations could remain until after the big day and lo and behold they began to be removed as we were enjoying our superb breakfast the following day. We would have no hesitation in recommending Pontlands Park to anyone.
