Customer Reviews

We chose The Old Course Hotel as our wedding venue after visiting this incredible location and having a tour. First off the venue itself is stunning, with so many different options and areas available to host your special day. We chose to have our meal in the conservatory, where you are literally right on the golf course in breathtaking surroundings, followed by our reception in the ball room which oozes elegance and class. It is certainly a venue that doesn’t need much ‘dressing up’ in order to provide you with a gorgeous backdrop for your day. We were lucky enough to have a glorious sunny day, which allowed for our wedding photos to be taken down on the beach and on the balcony beside the Road Hole Bar. We also managed to sneak in a sunset picture on the world famous Swilken Bridge! Choosing our menu was almost as fun as our wedding day, and the chef even came out to meet us to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. If you are a foodie and are really looking for a quality meal on your big day, then this is place for you! All of our guests couldn’t compliment the food enough, and we managed to provide options that suited everyone. The service throughout was also second to none, it really is 5 star. Living in the south of England, it was always going to be challenging to liaise and have our vision come to life. However after meeting Laura, she completely put our minds at ease. Every detail or request that we had, were brought to life and nothing was too big or too small. Laura even went above and beyond on the morning of our day by helping to iron creases out of my wedding dress! We couldn’t have asked for a better venue and it will forever hold a special place in our heart. We are forever grateful to all of the incredible staff for an incredible experience.

We had such a special wedding day thanks to Joelle and her amazing team. We wanted our day a bit different, nothing was a problem, everything was done to perfection. Beautiful room, lovely food and a warm friendly service throughout. The venue is stunning, a fantastic place to capture gorgeous photographs on the golf course and at the beach. We would highly recommend the Old Course as a special place to get married. We wish we could do it all over again!

Wow! what a venue! Stunning location and the ambience continued on from morning to night thanks to the amazing staff! If there was something negative to point out I would say it but thanks to Laura and her team it was just perfection! Irene Moir (MoB)

Can you say a thanks to grant to he was brilliant! All the staff throughout the day and night were fabulous! Nothing was a hassle at all anything anyone asked was done and sorted which was amazing! So thank you again for making our day so brilliant! It was everything I envisioned and more!

Firstly, we would just like to say a massive thank you to you and the full team at Old Course Hotel. We had such a fantastic wedding day, everyone involved was fantastic, the venue is absolutely beautiful, the staff were friendly, kind and so helpful, everything was great. We really appreciate the effort and planning that went into the day, with the decorations etc. everything was just perfect! The food was delicious and all our guests had such a lovely day. We really cannot thank you enough for what will be a day to remember for the rest of our lives!!

My oldest daughter was married in your Hotel last Saturday. I would just like to say that the day was absolutely fantastic and slick and very professional from start to finish. I would like to direct special praise to Joelle out coordinator. Her hard work and attention to detail was exemplary, coupled with a relaxed demeanour which put everyone in the bridal party at ease. The MC who’s name I didn’t catch was also in absolute control of the whole occasion. The service from the bubbly and canopies, right to the end of a splendid dinner, was efficient relaxed and very friendly. All to often at weddings the bar service for guests is undermanned and a bit of an afterthought, absolutely not the case last Saturday. I expect often you don’t hear from customers unless there’s a problem or complaint. Anyway I would appreciate if you would pass this on to everyone involved.

We held our daughters wedding reception at the Old Course Hotel on 19th May 2018. We cannot thank all the staff enough for making this day the best day for all who attended. Everyone who attended were astounded at not only the perfect setting, but also the excellent staff who may have been just doing their job but made you feel that it was their pleasure to make the day so special for all. Special thanks need to go to Harry, the restaurant manager who went above and beyond to be there in person for our daughters day. And also Lynsey, the wedding coordinator who dealt with everything thrown at her with a calming manner and even tracked down the brides mislaid bouquet, sending a courier to retrieve it from the church. We can only thank you for doing your part in making the day so special for us all John and Angie Newton.

Fabulous hotel. Wonderful welcome from the staff as we arrived. Immaculate, understated service - things just "happened". Lovely room. We were there as wedding guests - the wedding food, as well as the breakfasts we enjoyed, were terrific. Would love to go back.

We were married here on Saturday and it was absolutely perfect from start to finish. The hotel and all of the staff were amazing! I stayed there the night before with my bridesmaid and the night of the wedding with my new husband and on both nights, the attention to detail was incredible. Couldn’t fault the hotel at all and all of our wedding guests agreed. From the warm greeting from the concierge to the wedding breakfast meal and service, it was all fantastic. Thank you for making our big day so special, it was honestly the most amazing experience and wish we could do it all again!
