Beautiful Venue
Absolutely beautiful venue, lovely hotel and great location! The staff somewhat let the place down, my mother in law to be called a few months before our wedding (which had been booked months previous) to book a room for the night of the wedding to be told that there was no wedding booked on the date given so she couldnt book a room with the discount. We were then told just a couple of months before the wedding that they wouldn't have enough chairs for our evening guests as they booked another function the day of our wedding (we originally weren't going to have a reception and then changed our mind) and we came so close to cancelling until they reassured us that there would be enough furniture. The day before the wedding I checked into the hotel and the porters were amazing they helped us carry decorations and everything we'd bought with us up to our suite however the reception staff not being communicated to about the room being paid for on check out and asking for the money upfront which we did not have. I then checked numerous times throughout the evening when I could go and set up the decor that we had bought with us in the ceremony rooms to be told that the chairs would be set up 'in half an hour' for all evening and then the following morning! The morning of my wedding the chairs were still not set up so I could not set up what I wanted, i called reception to be told that my wedding was being held outside which i was surprised at seeing as it had rained all week and had been predicted rain for the duration the day! The receptionist then laughed when i suggested maybe not getting married in the rain and ruining my dress!! We wanted to also set up the table for our meal and couldnt do that until breakfast was finished for the hotel even though we had a separate part of the hotel and it didnt take 2 seconds for them to rearrange the 4 tables we needed so I had to wait and come down to the restaurant with my hair and makeup down and do it myself all while trying to avoid my fiance. The ceremony was lovely in the Windsor Lounge however there was no curtain/blind over the main door the room so I could have been seen walking over. We had our drinks reception which was lovely and our photographs, we had no private space whatsoever, members of the public and hotel guests were continually walking through our group and we were made to feel like we were in the way. We were then told to go through to the main hotel building for our meal but then had to wait 45 minutes just to be sat down, we were told they had to tick off the food orders even though we'd pre-ordered so we were then delayed. The food was absolutely incredible, massive portions and the wine is fab! Due to the delay, my parents had to go and set up the rest of the evening reception as they had organised a surprise for us, my husband then went to help and then the staff bought over prosecco (not the advertised champagne!!) for the toast so I ended up toasting myself! The evening pretty much went off without a hitch apart from again, more members of the public walking through the middle of it! My husband put it perfectly, he said 'it feels like we called up and booked 2 weeks ago and they've fit us in as a favour'. We weren't made to feel special at all on what was our special day, luckily our friends and family saved it for us!

A great relaxed atmosphere
A great relaxed atmosphere, delicious tea and food, helpful staff, a perfectly delivered afternoon tea wedding party. The preparation for this was brilliantly handled by John and the team, always answering any questions I had and promptly delivering everything we needed. Couldn't have asked for more! If you're looking for a relaxed, friendly but high quality location for any celebration or for staying in, look no further!

Family Wedding
Here for a family wedding. Everything first class except for a couple of niggles. First morning breakfast food excellent + choice, but people before us had dropped food on the floor which was not swept up. In the room, lovely old wardrobe needs a bit of TLC to the lock. Would stay again but in a different room.

A Truly Well Organised Enjoyable Day
From start to finish our wedding was organised so well by the Sir Christopher Wren team. Pre the wedding Leanne organised everything perfectly and didn’t miss a thing. On the day Henning managed every detail perfectly. He was on hand to make sure everything went to plan … which it did. The food was excellent, couldn’t fault the service and the breakfast on Sunday was great. We made some last minute changes and Leanne sorting them out for us without any problems. We want to say a huge thank you to everyone that helped make our day so special . We will see you on our 1 year anniversary .
