We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. Everything was exactly as we had wished for. A big thank you to Jake and his team who worked tirelessly all day to ensure everything ran smoothly. We must also say a big thank you to Georgia for everything she did to organise our day. We couldn’t have done it without her and her calm, relaxed approach was very reassuring. I couldn’t recommend you all enough!

I want to express my sincere thanks for an unforgettable day at Solent on our Wedding day. Georgia and George delighted us in making out dreams come true with everything we requested. The food was so tasty, the bar staff were friendly and attentive and the accommodation was clean and luxurious. So 10 out of 10 from us, you have a fab team of employees and we will continue to use your hotel as we always have done before.
