Could not have asked for a better wedding venue
We had the most perfect wedding at Raven Hall and we cannot get over how helpful the staff and the whole Raven Hall team were, the food was simply superb, we’ve had many guests compliment the food and the venue itself. I haven’t heard a single complaint. All of the staff were extremely accommodating to our needs and requests. Even the days after our wedding the staff were so helpful asking how our day was and attending to our needs (we stayed a few extra nights after) Gemma and Ben could not do enough for us and any question we had they came back to us pretty quickly. On the wedding day Ben was incredible ensuring everyone was on time and there were no hiccups! Raven Hall will always be a huge part of our life especially after visiting here for the 11 years that we’ve been together and now getting married here.

The most perfect day of our lives
We could not compliments this venue enough throughout the whole process we weren’t given 110% by all nothing wasn’t to much to ask nothing was roc much of a big deal for any of them Ben wasn’t the complete package for us from dealing with our requests to having Tovar’s put up with our norm so happy photographer to entertaining our 4yr old daughter whilst waiting to be walked down the aisle he was amazingly and could not thank him enough. From 1st meeting Gemma she’s was a star catered for everything we asked to all the staff on the day making sure everything went went should should and not a frown insight they made our day as oefrct as could possibly be. This hotel deserves this award 110% the most stunning venue with the most to die for views

A Wonderful Wedding Day
We recently held our wedding reception in the Great Hall and it was perfect. We chose this venue due to the views and it didn't disappoint. We stayed the night before in one of the hotel rooms. It was a very good size, which was handy when you've got a bride and groom getting ready for their wedding. Andrew Alcock, 24th December 2015
