What Our Wedding Guests Have Said...
'The food, day and night was spectacular'
Kevin and myself would like to say thank you so much to you all your staff for such a lovely wedding. The service we received was first class, the day was tailored to our specific requirements, and all of your staff went out of their way to ensure the day was exactly as we planned. Alex, Hughie, Stephan, Steve and all staff were amazing.
The dining room was stunning, absolutely perfect. The food, day and night was spectacular with almost everybody commenting that it was the best food they have had at a wedding. Thank you so much Steve. The gardens were perfect. We will recommend the Arundell Arms Hotel with no hesitation. Thank you all for such a perfect day. Lots of love Kim & Kevin.
Various comments from guests of the King wedding
Dear Alex, Thank you thank you thank you for making my daughter’s wedding day perfect. Your staff are fantastic, they are a great asset to you, the food was absolutely amazing and yourself were very accommodating to us I’m very sorry for being a motherzilla. Please can you give me the names of the waitressing staff that were there from start to finish as I would like to send them a card. Also can you say to the cleaners that I’m very sorry for the mess in our room, but grandchildren have just got to play. Once again I cannot thank you enough for all your hard work.

'Everyone at the Arundell without exception, were fantastic'
Dear Heather, Sorry it’s taken me a couple of weeks to get in touch; we are still walking around in a cloud and trying to get back to everyday life. I hope you enjoyed your time away too. I have been spending many a spare moment trying to think how best we can convey our feelings about the day and our heartfelt thanks to all at the Arundell. All words seem inadequate somehow. Everyone at the Arundell without exception, were fantastic and made our day the truly awesome experience that it was.
Lots of the guests are still contacting us with their comments and compliments on the venue and the service that the Arundell provided. It was just so good to have no worries on the day, to be guided through the day knowing that everything was in hand. The Arundell also gave us that ‘certain something’ that is hard to define, something on top of the excellent service and top quality food (please extend our enormous respects to Steve for the food which was exquisite).
Perhaps it was the sense that everyone seemed to be sharing in our celebrations somehow or the feeling that everyone was working hard towards achieving our perfect day, not merely because it’s their job, but because they take pride in what they do and genuinely wish to please. It’s the kind of customer service that would be priceless if it could be bottled and sold!
We’d be very grateful if you would be kind enough to pass on our heartfelt thanks to all at the Arundell please as well as accepting our thanks yourself for all you did in preparation for the day. We look forward to calling in to see every one whenever we are home. With thanks and many Kind Regards to all,
Nicola and David Nelson June 2011
'Thank You For Everything'
Thank you for everything you did to make our wedding such a huge success, we have received so many lovely comments about how wonderful the reception was, especially the food! With all the snow it must have been quite a challenging day for all of the staff. You really did go above and beyond to make my life easy, which was no mean feat given I was half way around the world in LA. From your flexibility accommodating all my ideas about table arrangements and service to make sure I didn't worry about a thing on the day, (even when the cake collapsed)! Thank you again for everything!

'The Food Was Sumptuous'
Dear Heather, this is a somewhat belated expression of thanks for the way that The Arundell Arms managed Margaret & Brian's wedding on 18th December 2010. Despite the snow and ice the event flowed smoothly, we all enjoyed ourselves, the food was sumptuous and your staff friendly and professional. In view of Margaret's background in event management you realised at an early stage that she would be a demanding bride. Your approach was always sincere and understanding and at each planning visit you welcomed us with warmth.
Your kitchen came up with delicious and beautifully presented food and the front of house staff looked after us with precision also. The skills of whoever re-erected the wedding cake that was delivered were much appreciated. Not many of the guests even knew it had toppled! The Arundell Arms remains and will always be full of happy memories for us all. Yours sincerely,
Caroline Jennings. December 2010
'The Service Was Outstanding'
We would like to thank you all for making our wedding day so memorable. The food was amazing, the service was outstanding and everything ran smoothly with a great atmosphere. Our guests are still commenting on how great and relaxing the day was so thank you to everyone who worked on our wedding day. We would have no hesitation in recommending The Arundell Arms to anyone for a wedding.

'We Cannot Recommend it Highly Enough'
We had the most wonderful wedding reception at The Arundell Arms. From the very beginning, nothing was too much trouble for us and our guests, and we had the freedom to plan our event exactly how we wanted it. The food and service were fantastic - we really couldn't fault anything. The Arundell Arms is a very well-run establishment and fully deserves its excellent reputation. Our guests were full of praise for the venue, and we cannot recommend it highly enough as a venue for any special occasion!”

'The Perfect Venue For Our Wedding'
The minute we walked into The Arundell Arms and were treated to a very warm and genuine welcome (with none of the pushy marketing that we’d encountered from other hotels), we knew we’d found the perfect venue for our wedding. We booked it right away and were delighted with the results. The planning went like a dream, with no request too much bother and plenty of support when it was needed.
Everybody at The Arundell Arms worked hard to make sure our day went off without a hitch. The gardens looked beautiful, the food was absolutely amazing (and is still being talked about now) and we really did have the best day of our lives. If you are looking for a really relaxing, beautiful wedding with delicious food in really elegant surroundings, you will find it hard to beat The Arundell Arms.
