What type of hotel should I book for my special day celebrations?

At Guides for Brides we have hotels of all sizes, from city centre boutique hotels to countryside houses and well-known chains. Our venue search lets you add filters to your search in order to find the best size and type of hotel for you in Orkney Islands .

Small hotels usually have between 10 and 50 bedrooms, so if you’d like a special day celebrations venue that your whole special day celebrations party can take over, then a small hotel may be the perfect choice for you. This also means that you’re less likely to encounter other guests on your day, if you don’t already have an exclusive use booking.

There's often less that 100 guests rooms in a boutique hotel, and have unique, stylish decor. These types of hotels are often located in an urban environment, so if you’re marrying in the city and want your guests to have super chic accommodation, then a boutique hotel is a great choice.

Large hotels can have hundreds of rooms, so if you’re having a big special day celebrations with plenty of guests, then you may find that a big hotel will suit you. Large hotels often have more special day celebrations spaces to choose from, such as outdoor marquees, ballrooms or purpose-built special day celebrations suites, and are a good choice for Asian special day celebrations in particular.

Will we be the only people in the venue when booking a hotel for my wedding day?
