AVOID!!! Absolutely the worst venue I have ever came across when booking my wedding, with almost two weeks to go to my wedding they cancelled due to COVID restrictions and rather than them telling me about it a week ago when they received the news, I had to call up regarding other information they neglected to tell me about, ie. run down of the day, seating, rooms, etc! After being completely devastated they did not even offer to move my date when I asked for a refund, I was told to “stop raising my voice” instead when they are the ones who are incapable of doing their job. Heartbroken isn’t even the word, wish I never wasted my time, money or energy on such a poorly run and managed business, if you can even call it that.

Poor customer service
We visited Swinton at one of their open days and we fell in love with the estate. This is a beautiful place and exactly what we hoped to have for our winter wedding. It’s such a shame the customer service we experienced has been so poor. We were told the quote would take a couple of days, which we advised we appreciated as our wedding was just shy of a year away! Took almost two weeks for the quote to be provided and that’s after we chased 5 times. Each time we were given a different excuse as to the whereabouts of the wedding co-ordinator ‘she’s on holiday/in a meeting/ unavailable’. When the quote arrived it didn’t have the added extras we had discussed and we again had to go back to them. Several days later and with now 11 months to go to our wedding, we again called Swinton. On 26/11 we received a reply from ‘Helen’ who appears to be a revenue manager. She answered our questions and apologised for the poor service. It’s now been three weeks and no one has followed up to see if we want to book with them. Given the delays with Swinton, we have now had to push our wedding date back to look for an alternative venue. We just can’t trust them if this is the service before we hand over our deposit! Very very poor service and can not recommend for any couple looking for a venue.
