We held our wedding ceremony and reception here and everything was perfect. The staff were all welcoming and friendly especially the Wedding Team, nothing was too much trouble. The food was absolutely fantastic and all our guests commented on how lovely it was. The hotel itself is a stunning place and the views are amazing, the idyllic venue and backdrop for fantastic photographs which our photographer was able to capture. To everyone at Upper House you did us proud our wedding day was perfect from start to finish and we will definitely return for an anniversary in the future. Thank you so much.

Wow where to start! Got married here on Saturday 9th September. Our wedding coordinator Sam was awesome from start to finish. Nothing and we mean nothing was too much trouble for her. Every email that I sent was acknowledged and answered to put our minds at ease. The venue blew me away, the girls dressed it and it looked perfect! Sam and her team could not have done enough for us making sure that every attention to detail was met. Their efficient service during our meal went above and beyond! The food was outstanding. We literally could not fault a thing and our day was the best day ever from start to finish. I have to say though that Sam is an absolute asset to the upper house and I hope they realise what a credit she is to their wedding business because she worked so so hard to give us that amazing day. Don't think about booking your wedding here just do it we promise you will not be disappointed xx Perfect venue with a perfect wedding team! Thank you all so much!

We got married her in July and all I can say is it was perfect. From start to finish everything was as we dreamed of. Sam and the girls did an amazing job and made the day so relaxing. We managed to get married outside which was perfect and the food was top quality. The room was dressed to perfection to. Everyone commented on it being one of the best weddings they had been to and what a top location.
