Stylishly decorated and wonderfully facilitated, the deluxe Guildford Harbour Hotel is a contemporary wedding venue found in the heart of Surrey. Situated just off the buzzing High Street, this four-star hotel brings understated class and luxury to any wedding day. A hark back to the building's origins as a 17th century coaching inn, the front facade of the hotel and its floor to ceiling glass windows seamlessly intertwines the new with old. Enter the hotel and immediately feel at ease with luxurious decor and most important of all - a warm welcome!

Fully licensed to host both ceremonies and receptions, this luxury hotel is capable of hosting up to 280 guests for a formal sit down meal (and more for an evening reception). Add to this the recently-refurbished spa, which is perfect for pre-wedding pampering, a terrace and courtyard with retractable roof and 183 luxurious bedrooms. The staff are delightfully experienced and will direct you through the entire process of planning your celebrations, from devising your bespoke package to advising on acceptable wedding etiquette.


Although the hotel is only four years old, the area surrounding the site teems with history. The current building was originally The White Horse Hotel in the 17th century, boasting some of the original exterior, and the white horse statue still remains today.

This large room is perfect for large weddings, able to accommodate 230 people for a ceremony, and then 280 for the wedding breakfast or evening reception. There is ample space for a DJ or a live band. The room leads onto a pre-function area with a bar, so is perfect if you wish to break up the day a little. It also opens onto a marvellous outdoor courtyard terrace, which features a retractable roof and a music sound system, making it the ideal place to host a champagne reception.
