    The fantastic team at The Old Hall Hotel hosted our wedding and we wouldn't have changed a thing. The entire wedding planning process was made so easy and the day was absolutely amazing, we were treated so well by the team and it made it very special. All of our guests commented on how beautiful the dining room looked, how friendly the staff were and how superb the food was! The staff here pulled out all the stops for us, the rooms were beautifully clean and we're so happy that we chose The Old Hall Hotel, we can't thank you enough.

    Victoria and the rest of The Old Hall Hotel team made our day perfect. The venue was the perfect setting, and every one of our guests complimented us on the beautiful venue. The hotel has such an amazing atmosphere and the staff were very efficient and attentive. We could not have asked for a more perfect day. I was so nervous but even from the start Victoria was very calm and reassuring, we were able to relax and really enjoy the day. The food was also delicious – we couldn’t have asked for more.

  • Amanda

    The Old Hall Hotel venue was perfect in every way. The ceremony room was filled with natural light pouring through stunning stained-glass windows. The reception was held downstairs in The Pauper’s Pit which was ‘very cool’ according to some of our guests. All the staff were amazing, especially Vicky. The day couldn’t have gone better.
