Villiers Hotel, originally known as the Swanne upon the Hoppe, was built a staggering 400 years ago. Its name was to change multiple times over the years, from The Swan to The White Swan, until it would eventually be renamed after George Villiers the 1st Duke of Buckingham.

There are many local legends surrounding the hotel, such as rumours that Oliver Cromwell stayed there with his troops in 1643.

    I had my wedding reception held at Villiers. We had presumed it would be out of our price range but it was surprisingly affordable. From start to finish the service was brilliant. The food was absolutely amazing and everyone raved about the standard of it. In comparison to some of our friends, our day was relatively cheap, however even now people go on about what a perfect day it was. We didn't need to stress about anything related to the reception, everything was handled with professionalism, precision and in a friendly manner. Cannot recommend Villiers highly enough. Thank you to everyone involved. We still pop back for a meal on our anniversary!

    Everyone at Villiers were absolutely brilliant, nothing was too much trouble for them. Our wedding was faultless from start (about 10:30am) to finish (around midnight) and their attention to detail was brilliant. If you are looking for a special venue, l would recommend Villiers one hundred percent. To Jean and all the staff, you are all amazing. Many thanks again for a fantastic day.

  • Julie Baker - 22nd November 2017

    Having visited Villiers on previous occasions, we had always felt it to be a warm and friendly venue, comfortably grand but not in any way ‘stuffy’ and having looked at several others, decided on it as our perfect wedding venue. Our wedding day was an absolute dream. We could not have wished for a better experience. Jean was there early on the day, making sure that every detail was attended to, she could not have looked after us any better! The Ballroom looked superb, the food was excellent, the service seamless and the staff, without exception, attentive and charming. We really can’t praise Villiers highly enough and would recommend without hesitation it as a wonderful wedding venue.
