Full Description
Here at Sporting Lodge Inns we want to make your Wedding Day as stress free and enjoyable as possible. With our flexible packages you have the enjoyment of being able to select each element of your special day from the menus and drinks packages to the decorations and entertainment but with the added luxury of our Wedding Coordinator being able to bring it all together for you and a Wedding Supervisor and team that will be with you every step of the way on the day to ensure that the Venue is set to your specification and that everything flows seamlessly. This, along with the fact that we are licensed to hold Civil Ceremonies at the Hotel and that we only accommodate one wedding a day means that you can enjoy your full day in one place leaving you and your guests to completely relax and enjoy every moment from start to finish! The Maltby Suite can accommodate Weddings from 30-200 people and within it you have your own private bar, dance floor, stage, direct access to the private patio area and gardens which are ideal for photographs and in the summer months BBQ’s and drinks receptions. We offer packages to suit all tastes and budgets and all elements of the packages can be flexible to suit your personal taste, colour scheme and requirements. If it is not a full day package that you require or you are looking for something different we are happy to try and build a tailored package just for you! The Hotel also has 140 en-suite rooms and we offer all Wedding guests a discounted bed & breakfast rate if they wish to stay and make a full night of it and the Bride & Groom of course get their room complimentary! To Book Request a Brochure or to arrange an appointment with our Wedding Coordinator, please call 01642 578100 option 2 or email
