    We literally can't find enough words to describe how we feel about The Old Hall - We had our wedding here on 30th December, it was everything and more than we could have ever imagined! From first meeting Alex and the team, to every meeting we had, email I sent and query I had; we could not have asked for better! The day itself was so well organised thank you to the whole team, it ran like clockwork to allow us to really enjoy the day with no worry whatsoever. The comments we have received from guests since have been nothing but praise and outstanding comments - including "the best and poshest wedding ever!" Thank You so much for providing us with not only a breathtaking venue but for also giving us the most memorable day we could ever have!

  • Proud Parent

    Only one word for The Old Hall - superb. We had my daughters wedding reception here and everything was perfect from start to finish. The organisation of the reception and the rooms we stayed in were brilliant. The location leaves nothing to be desired with views over the surrounding countryside to Ely Cathedral on the horizon. My thanks to all the staff for making this such a successful occasion.

  • Impressed Guest

    Was here for a Wedding - it has to be the PERFECT venue. For an old place it has been refurbished and modernised to exceptional standards - I fell in love with it. Amazing attention to detail. Beautiful views over a lake and the surrounding fields, I will find an excuse to go back - it really is pretty.
