Small intimate wedding
Following the cancellation of our Vegas wedding in May 2020 we decided to re-schedule our elopement in England. Whatley was an obvious choice for us, having previously visited just about a year ago. The grounds and building are fantastic and we love the genuine country vibe of the place. In fact, walking into Whatley does not feel like checking into a hotel, more like visiting your relatives for a week end retreat in the countryside (if you happen to have relatives who live in a splendid Manor house that is). Our wedding ceremony was held in the gazebo in the garden and all the staff was extra attentive, literally we had nothing to worry about but chill and enjoy every moment. The Spa is quite simply the nicest one we have visited in this country, in terms of treatments, facilities available and design. It is stunning. We were lucky to stay for 2 nights and enjoy both Grey Brasserie's and The Dinning Room. The food was absolutely outstanding in both (obviously in very different ways) and the staff always friendly and knowledgeable. Of course the hotel has to comply with Covid-19 restrictions and regulations but it is all done in a very subtle manner. While we were made to feel safe, the sanitizing stations or floor markings for example do not spoil the atmosphere nor elegance of the place. Overall, Whatley Manor is one of these special house you should visit at least once. With staycations on the cards for a little while still, it's never been a better time to do so

Christmas Wedding
We would like to thank you for helping us have the most amazing wedding celebration, we could not have been happier and the reaction from our friends and family was exactly what we wanted and you deserve. Without exception they had the best time and an experience they will remember forever, exactly what we wanted. It was always our wish that it was more than just Will and I getting married, we wanted it to be a truly magical experience and it most certainly was. Holly - from our initial booking to the day itself, she made this experience easy and stress free and that is the highest compliment we can give because weddings are stressful but we can honestly say we enjoyed the experience and we never felt stressed or worried about how the day would unfold, it just seemed to happen with perfection. Never once did Holly look anything other than totally in control and oozed confidence. We didn’t worry because Holly wasn’t worried. Holly, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts along with Dan for making it the very special day it was. I know hospitality and customer service is your business but getting it right is much much easier said than done but you did. We have memories to last a lifetime and photos that show just how fabulous it was

Truely amazing Wedding experience
My family friends had their wedding hosted in this exceptional hotel and we had the whole place to ourselves on a Sunday. From arrival to departure everything was perfect, staff members were polite and attentive, everyone had an excellent time. There is definitely a lot of positive energy around this place, and you can really feel it once you have arrived. If you are looking for something different in the area look no further!

A magical wedding venue
On May 18th My son married his partner at Whatley Manor. The whole experience was faultless. The hotel and grounds are stunning. The bedrooms are large and very well appointed. The communal rooms are well kept and quietly comforting. The staff are friendly and nothing was too much for them. The cuisine is exceptional. There is a large car park. My brother and sister-in-law had trouble with their taxi service at the end of the evening. No problem, as the Operations Manager, Dan, drove them to their hotel.

Simply the most amazing day
We booked Whatley because we are regulars to the hotel and know the staff and the venue very well. Everything was organised to a tee and our wedding day was the most magical day of my life. We got married in the sunshine at the gazebo and had a delicious dinner in our dining room. We partied the night away and some guests were up till the early morning!
