What the Newlyweds Say

Thank you Christine, & your team, for making our wedding day truly memorable, the day was absolutely flawless, ran like clockwork & everyone had a fabulous time.

Right from the start Poets House catered to our every need & personalised the day for us, unlike other wedding venues Poets House (Christine) arranged everything the way we wanted it, with no set 'packages' to choose from.

The food, wine, garden, staff, table decorations, drinks and canapes looked & tasted fabulous, the flow of the day, with the use of the garden, couldn’t have been better.

Christine & her team liaised with our photographer (Chris Boland) and our florist (Wild Clover) all I had to do as, the bride, was turn up & say 'I do'!!

Fabulous location, fabulous food & drinks to choose from, and fabulous staff - I can't praise them enough!

Elizabeth & Christopher

My partner Sarah and I had our wedding reception here in June 2023. Christine and the team were brilliant in supporting our celebration. The venue was also very accessible for my mum who uses an electric wheelchair.

10/10 service. Thank you.

Victoria & Sarah

My partner and I got married at poets house Ely earlier this year, the whole team were so professional and the day went so well, thanks to all their hard work. The location is beautiful, I would highly recommend this venue for weddings and special occasions.

Hanna & Sui Liem

We held our amazing wedding at Poets House on Friday 26th May 2023. From booking we received a personal and professional service with fantastic attention to detail that made our day so perfect. Communication was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. The Writing room was fantastic holding the ceremony, wedding breakfast and the evening celebration in this versatile space. The food was excellent and plentiful - catering for all needs. The bedrooms were fabulous, spacious and extremely comfortable (I managed to sleep the night before as the bed was so good).

Christine and her team made the whole day, both of us and all our guests feel so special, with each and every member of staff giving 110%

We would highly recommend Poets House to anyone and will be sharing our positive experience widely. A huge thank you ♥️

Lucy & David

We spent a long time after we got engaged looking for our perfect venue and we were so pleased to find it at Poets House. We had a large Sikh wedding on the Saturday of a bank holiday weekend, followed by a more intimate ceremony and celebration at the lovely Poet's House on the Sunday. It was the ideal size for our 60-something guests and wonderful to have the run of the hotel for a relaxed and fun occasion, as well as the convenience and luxury of having most of our guests staying at the hotel overnight in the beautiful rooms. We first came to Poets House for lunch, and the high quality of the food was a big influence on our making the decision that we'd found the right venue for us. The only difficult part was choosing what to have to eat on our big day because we enjoyed everything at our tasting!

Amy & Gurpal (Part 1)

The team at Poets House are fantastic - Christine in particular was so helpful in the run up to the wedding and keeping everything moving on the day. She was happy to accommodate our requests, including for outdoor games in their courtyard - I recommend giant Jenga! - and would always provide a reassuring response to my last minute panics. The team even created table numbers to match my "art deco" theme. I recommend Poets House for any couple looking for an elegant venue, which offers the flexibility to make your wedding special and personal to you.

Amy and Gurpal (Part 2)

We were married on the 6th June this year and we choose Poets House as the venue from the time we had the first meeting to the time we got married everything was perfect they could not do enough for us we had a couple of issues what arouse but I have to say the management team handled these very well and it did not ruin the day.

The food we had was amazing and we were catered for very well. We couldn't stay the night of the wedding but we were given a voucher to come back and say and we are very much looking forward to it.

The staff of the poet's house was amazing on the day we got married nothing was to much trouble for them and Christine the manager is amazing at what she does.

Laura & Mark

Just had our daughters wedding here on Friday and the day was amazing. Hotel did us proud the food was amazing the staff could not do enough for us and the lady who helped our daughter plan her wedding went above and beyond to make her day as special as it was. The Hotel and rooms are beautiful and would recommend this Hotel for a wedding a stay or just a drink and a meal would come back again and again for meal and drink. Thank you all for everything you did for us and we will never forget our daughters perfect wedding day

Amazing wedding lunch. Thanks so much to the team for taking great care of us, for helping on organizing and making sure everything was perfect on the D-day.

The food was delicious, service was impeccable.

We are very pleased, we really recommend the private room for an intimate event like ours. Merci !!

Lucie & Dillon

We would all like to say a big ‘thank you’ to you and your staff for the kindness shown to us at yesterday’s lunch. We all thoroughly enjoyed the excellent food and relaxing surroundings; we very much appreciated being allowed to chat on after the meal - although we hope we didn’t overstay our welcome!

Following the wedding of Emma and Luke at the Poets House Hotel on 9th September, I'm writing to thank you and all your colleagues for providing the perfect venue for the occasion.  It was a wonderful day and couldn't have gone better.  Everyone involved at the Poets House Hotel was friendly, polite and efficient from the morning of the wedding right through to guests departing on the Sunday morning.  On a personal note, I know that Emma and Luke very much appreciated your calm and reassuring support both beforehand and on the day.  A special mention to thank Sarah for her help too, including getting the chairs and tables decorated.  The food was delicious, and the waiting and bar staff were great.

Hotel Guest

It was such a happy day and many of the guests commented on the lovely venue, the efficiency of the hotel and the excellent staff. On such a hot day it was great to have the courtyard garden to sit in, and the combination with the inside reception room and bar provided the perfect venue.

All in all a wonderful occasion, and a lovely setting to celebrate Emma and Luke's wedding.  Thank you again to everyone at the Poets House Hotel.
