We got married here at the end of May. It was just perfect. We have had a lot of compliments from our guests about the hotel. The staff were amazing and made it run smoothly, the food was perfect everyone enjoyed it. Jackie was really helpful throughout the planning.

Thank you for answering all my silly emails and the strange requests. I really appreciated how quickly you responded to us - as a bride whose got a lot going on I was very grateful for your quick responses! It was a comfort to me knowing you were there taking care of everything whilst my family were going through a very difficult period. The day itself was everything we wanted and more. The room looked beautiful and we got so many compliments about the food - which was outstanding. I loved the pork pies! The whole thing ran so smoothly even when we asked for the food to be put back half an hour the managers were more than happy to delay - please pass on our gratitude and thanks to them. Also please pass on my thanks for how they helped my Uncle when he collapsed. Overall you and your team gave us the wedding of our dreams which we will treasure

23/09/17 We held our wedding at this lovely hotel. We had a lovely sunny September day, everything went as planned thanks to the amazing help and support from Jackie Levers the wedding co-ordinater. Always at the end of the phone or email to answer any questions. We hired the barn room for our ceremony which was perfect, and the challis room for our reception. The food was wonderful and plenty of it. We had fantastic photos taken in the courtyard and a trip to the lake was great fun and very romantic. The staff were polite and helpful and on hand all day and evening. We stayed the night and our room was beautiful. Roll top bath, walk in shower in a huge bathroom with balcony. The bed was comfy and room well equipped. Our guests had a good and comfortable stay too. Breakfast, once we found it was good. Ordered hot food and helped ourselves to drinks and toast etc. We had a fantastic wedding from start to finish and would highly recommend the hotel and Jackie to anyone. Thank you to all xxx

28/10/17 We had a fantastic wedding day. The staff were friendly and efficient in their work, the food was very good and complimented on by several guests. Overall we were really pleased to have chosen Cottesmore as our wedding venue and would highly recommend it. Thank you for your organisation work and help with our big day. You made the process simple and stress-free.

Absolutely perfect from start to finish. We have just had our wedding at Cottesmore and Jackie and he team were fantastic from start to finish. We are so glad we chose this venue everybody who came said how stunning it was. From when we came and spoke to Jackie we knew we had found our perfect place. Jackie made the process so easy and stress free even though we only gave ourselves 3 months to plan it all. On the day we had Sean and Dorien looking after us and they were fantastic great asset to the hotel and made us feel so special. Thank you both. If you are looking to chose this as your venue I would highly recommend Cottesmore golf club as we found it perfect in every way.

We had our wedding here in August and had the best day of our lives. The venue is beautiful and the staff made the day run smoothly. Big thanks to Jackie who made all the preparation so enjoyable and easy. Highly recommend

We had our Wedding Reception here on the 10th September. We are so happy we chose Cottesmore. Jackie was wonderful from the moment we booked to the moment we got married. The building & surroundings are beautiful & the reception room looked gorgeous. Our guests commented on this & throughly enjoyed themselves. The food was perfection. The staff were very helpful & accommodating. The bridal suite is lush. We couldn't have been happier & will be recommending to friends & family for any future Weddings :) thank you x

Our wedding day was on 14th May and was absolutely fantastic. The staff went above and beyond in all instances. Our day went completely smoothly largely down to the pure organisation and flexibility of the staff. We had so many compliments on the quality of the food which was still absolutely lovely bearing in mind we had to delay slightly on sit down time. One thing i would recommend is that the side entrance is better signposted as most people used the swimming pool entrance which is not so nice. I would whole heartedly recommend having your wedding/reception here.

We held our Wedding Reception at Cottesmore on Friday 27th May. It was a Perfect Day in all respects. Everyone had a great time, we were looked after in every small detail. Food was great, the children enjoyed the outside area. It is a lovely venue for people of all ages and the guest rooms are also very good. The whole experience from their help in planning the Wedding requirements to the Day itself could not be faulted. Well done to Jacqui, Lisa and the team. Jan and Bob xx

We held my Son and Daughter-in-law's wedding at Cottesmore on Saturday 16th July. To describe it in one word, would be , amazing ! Jackie and the team had everything covered in the lead up and during the whole day. Everything was so relaxed, yet so efficient. Lisa and her bar staff kept everything seamless for the whole evening. We have had numerous messages from our guests giving thanks to the staff and what a beautiful venue it was. My husband and I have said it was one of the most special days of our lives and one we will not forget for years to come.

Yes the event went well, the following is to give positive criticism: - there were one or two things that could have been handled in a better way, in particular shepherding/ensuring guests knew how to gain access into and out of the function room (as there were 2 entrances/exits), plus a bit more help on the timetable, as we had to remind the staff that we were waiting for food, the background music stopped after an hour and wasn't put back on until we reminded them, and all in all we felt they could have been "on the ball" a bit more. The chicken was slightly overcooked.

Ian & I got married on 3rd June 2016 and our reception at the Cottesmore Golf Club was an Afternoon Tea themed wedding. We had a wonderful day and the afternoon tea exceeded our expectations. Jackie the event organiser was brilliant from start to finish and nothing was too much trouble. We will never forget our day and thank you to all of the for making it a special day.

Our wedding day at Cottesmore was perfect. Our event organiser was Jackie who throughout our whole experience, from first contact to the day after our wedding was so lovely and friendly. She put us at ease, was on top of everything really made planning our wedding easy and stress free. The ceremony room was adorable and had a lovely feel, the reception room spacious enough for our needs and was ideal for the size of our wedding (75). The food was beautiful and plentiful and the menu choices are great. The wine choices also went down well. On the day Jackie was there to oversee and settle our last minute needs. We really couldn't fault any of the staff on our day. They were all incredibly helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The bedrooms are beautiful and we were able to almost take over the place both for the night before and the wedding night. We had lots of people coming from a distance and the parking is great. All in all our experience of Cottesmore was truly faultless. Everything about our wedding was absolutely perfect and we would highly recommend this venue without hesitation.

Thank you for organising a fantastic Wedding Day. All the staff were so friendly and made us and all our guests feel so welcome on the day. The food was excellent and our guests commented on how beautiful the grounds and flowers were around the courtyard. Thank you again.

Thank you so much for all of your hard work and help with our wedding. It was such an amazing day. The staff were brilliant and the food was amazing. We had such a magical day and the venue was perfect.

"The Wedding of my Dreams" We got married last month at Cottesmore Golf Club and it was the perfect venue for our wedding, from start to finish the staff were amazing, the food was delicious and the whole setting was fantastic. The hotel rooms are also very very nice, very comfortable and you are looked after very well. We are so pleased we chose this venue it was truly amazing.

The event organiser, Jackie Levers,Functions and Events Manager at the Cottesmore Hotel Golf and Country Club made the day special.The staff that dealt with the running of the wedding from start to finish and especially those that served our food were very professional, efficient, well mannered and courteous. They should each be told of how happy we were. I will be recommending your services to others.

I would like to thank you and your staff for the way we were looked after at my daughter’s wedding. We were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. On the Saturday morning there were a few people including the Bride dealing with their hair and make-up and in the middle of it your housekeeper was around dealing with the rooms and helping them with their needs. Every member of staff we dealt with was polite, efficient and professional. The wedding breakfast was excellent and having one guest inform me 10 minutes before we sat down to the meal she had a nut allergy and your staff dealt with it as it was the norm. The evening buffet was excellent with a large variety of food. I hope we have reason to use your facilities again in the future.

Thank you so much for all your time and effort for our special day. It was a beautiful day and it was thanks to everyone at Cottesmore.

We came across the Cottesmore Golf and Country Club by accident and what a great accident it turned out to be. We experienced the utmost professionalism from Jackie, the wedding and event organiser and her team. She could not have been more helpful in organising our wedding reception. There are 3 packages to choose from and we decided to go for the 2nd package. In terms of value for money this was an excellent choice and gave us far more than any of the local hotels could offer for almost double the price. We were able to choose extras such as swathes of material to decorate the bannisters and lights to go around the pillars which were at very competitive prices. On the day of our wedding we were able to begin setting up quite early in the morning. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff helping us. When we arrived for the actual reception everything was ready - we did not have to worry about a thing. The food was excellent as was the service. No one hurried us out of the building at the end either. The staff waited until the finish time we have booked before beginning to clear up. The bridal suite was lovely and included a bottle of bubbly. The new bathroom was quite impressive as well. Overall we feel we had the best wedding reception we could have wanted for a price that was well within our budget. We were well looked after, every detail was taken care of and we were able to relax and enjoy celebrating our marriage with our friends. We have had so many compliments from our guests who were particularly impressed with the quality of the food. A huge thank you to Jackie and all the staff.

We had our reception at Cottesmore and were so pleased we chose it. Jackie was so helpful throughout the process and was always contactable when we had yet another question or change. The food was fantastic and there was plenty of drinks available both on the arrival and during dinner. The staff were great and so helpful and it made the day ran like clockwork. All our guests commented on our reception saying how lovely it was.

I just wanted to say to you and all the staff at Cottesmore that made our daughter’s and now ‘new’ son in laws wedding day, a truly amazing day. From our first call and visit, to the venue discussions and planning, to the day of celebrations; you have done a great job and we would not hesitate in recommending Cottesmore to others. Kind regards Tony and Diane King, parents of the Bride.

Myself and Chris just wanted to say a massive thank you to yourself and everyone at Cottesmore for making our wedding such a lovely day. The day was so much more than we expected. The guests all loved the venue, food and the disco which you booked was fantastic as well Many thanks for putting up with all my questions in the weeks leading up to the wedding and for keeping me sane. Thank you again for making our day so special

"Where do we start? Thank you so much to everyone at Cottesmore - you made our day so special, we could not have asked for anything more. From the moment we met Jackie and looked around we both knew that Cottesmore would be our venue. The lovely courtyard, the bedrooms/suites, bar area with terrace, 2 x reception rooms and of course the idyllic photo's by the lake, Cottesmore really does have it all. We cannot recommend you enough and your whole entire staff are a complete credit to you as a company. Thank you, Mark & Jenny "

Thank you for all your help in making our wedding day so special. The food was amazing and everyone enjoyed it.
