"Each section of the hotel has its own magical touch. The main reception room where the ceremonies are held feels like something from a grand cathedral, the outside terrace feels like a romantic French castle, and the woodland area feels like a magical country retreat. We love how much variety there is - it gives couples plenty of choice when it comes to backdrops for their photographs."

“We held our wedding at this beautiful hotel and I can’t thank them enough for making sure it was a perfect day for us. The Great Hall was decorated beautifully; it really was magical with all the candles and fairy lights. Many of our guests commented on how fairytale like it was. Although to be honest the hall is stunning anyway without any decorations.”
Bride, Emma
“The service was exceptional, staff were friendly and you could have a laugh with them. Highly recommended.”
Bride, Jane
“My wedding at The Alverton was perfect! The staff could not have done more to make our special day go flawlessly. The serving staff were fabulous and the events team made sure that everything went smoothly and on time. I cannot recommend The Alverton enough.”
Bride, Sharon
“My daughter recently got married at The Alverton, a beautiful location for a wedding. The accommodation is fantastic, and the restaurant and bar area comfortable and relaxing. The staff were very helpful and polite. The Great Hall is a stunning venue for the wedding ceremony and the food service was second to none. A quick turnaround between the service, reception and the evening celebration ensured that all guests had an enjoyable day. I would recommend The Alverton to everyone as an ideal location for any celebration.”
Father of the bride, John
“From the moment we arrived until we checked out, everything was perfect. Spacious rooms, attentive staff, delicious food and a cracking location as you could walk into town easily form here. And it's easy to get to...what's not to like?”
Groom, Ian
“I had a bit of a nose around The Great Hall to see how it looked before the ceremony. It looked perfect. After the ceremony the staff quickly rearranged The Great Hall to accommodate us all for the three-course dinner, which was very good. And then again after this for the evening celebration complete with a disco and photo booth. Staff were so helpful and did all they could to help in any way possible. I cannot fault them for a thing.”
Mother of the bride, Donna
