Fredrick’s Hotel & Alix Venue: Beautiful boutique hotel situated in maidenhead, wonderful décor and a beautiful new neutral carpet within main function room. The reception is gorgeous with art deco chandeliers and marble floor which looks lovely for wedding photos! Hotel Rooms: We stayed in the Berkshire Suite for our stay at the hotel and it was absolutely amazing! It was quiet and peaceful. The shower and bath are lovely and the bed is massive. I didn’t get ready for the wedding in this room – but I would highly recommend it for future brides as it is very spacious. Food: Charlie the Chef is absolutely wonderful, he was so flexible and professional. The food was delicious, the kitchen team ... Read more

We had a wonderful wedding at Fredrick's and I would like to say that there are 3 people who need a special mention straightaway. Alix for being so helpful, kind and reassuring in the run-up to our wedding. We live in France and so we weren't able to make many trips over (in fact we only went twice before the wedding) but she helped us by taking photos and explaining the layout and all in all she is absolutely fantastic and will help you make your day very special. We'd been badly let down by Monkey Island, which is round the corner by them cancelling our wedding as the new owners wanted to do refurbishments 6 months before our wedding ... Read more

We chose Fredricks for our wedding as we wanted an exclusive use venue, where all of our family and friends could stay over. Alix, the Events Manager, was great, made sure all of the planning went smoothly and answered all of our questions very promptly. On the day itself we had a couple of issues but these were dealt with very well by the hotel manager. The food was particularly outstanding and we had lots of positive comments from guests. Most of the staff were very friendly and helpful but we did have a few problems with being billed incorrectly on check in and check out, where notes were on the account but hadn't been reviewed properly. Also, half our ... Read more

Our wedding day was perfect and everything we wanted it to be! Leading up to the wedding, Alix done a very good job with helping us coordinate. She answered our questions promptly and was also very helpful the morning of the wedding when a bridesmaids dress had a completely broken zip from under the arm to the waist. Alix helped save the day with lots of safety pins! The Chef done an amazing wedding breakfast and everyone commented on how nice the food was. And, the bar staff, waiters and waitresses were also fantastic and very professional all day. I would highly recommend this venue to any other couples planning to get married. I don't think we could have picked ... Read more

We had our wedding at Fredrick’s Hotel in December. We had an absolutely fantastic day. Everything went perfectly which was mostly due to the Events Manager Alix. In the months before the wedding Alix was so helpful and very adaptable to our requirements. On the day of the wedding she made sure the room was set up just right and that everyone was in the right place at the right time so I didn’t have to worry about anything and could spend the morning relaxing! Alix does a fantastic job and made everything so easy for us. I stayed the night before the wedding and ate dinner at the hotel, the food was delicious. The double room was traditionally furnished, ... Read more

We got married in August at Fredricks and would definitely recommend it. It was pretty reasonably priced for the area & the food was delicious! We had a lovely menu tasting where the chef prepared amazing food. The hotel were very accommodating of dietary requirements (we had a few...!). One of the best things about this venue was Alix, the wedding coordinator. She was fantastic, keeping in contact with us & keeping us up to date with everything. She was very welcoming & relaxed about the whole thing which made the wedding plannin calm! She was there for some of the wedding night & that definitely put us at ease. It was a truly amazing day!
by Karen & Isaac on Mon, 30th November, 2015
We initially found the Fredricks Hotel by searching for a spa hotel that would suit our needs for a wedding celebration to last a long weekend. The venue was perfect in the flesh. On our initial meeting I found Alix very amiable. She was easy to talk to and this made our decision to go ahead with booking the Fredricks- registrar permitting- an easy one. We worked together to plan a fantastic wedding. Alix and her colleagues were always on hand during the planning for the wedding to answer our many questions without making us feel like nuisances. We planned for an October wedding with back up options depending on weather and numbers of guests. We met with a chef ... Read more
by Kate & Warren on Mon, 30th November, 2015
Alix was the reason we booked our wedding and reception at Fredricks Hotel. She was the first wedding coordinator we met and none of the other we visited lived up to the first impression Alix has given us. She completely understood what we were trying to achieve at our wedding and was helpful when we were putting ideas forward as to whether or not things were possible. When it came to the day you only saw Alix was on hand when we needed something and was happy to help throughout the day. Alix is friendly and understands what is important to a couple planning their wedding. She understands that you aren't really sure what is what when it comes to ... Read more
by Paula & Mark on Mon, 30th November, 2015
Alix was so calm and professional. Nothing was too much of a problem. She was also very honest about what we did and didn't need to spend money on. I always felt confident that everything would be fine on the day as Alix and the team were so professional. We chose Fredrick’s because of the venue, price and professionalism. The staff were fabulous. Everyone was so friendly and professional. They made the day for us.
by Sheila & Robin on Mon, 30th November, 2015
Alix was attentive and helpful at all our meetings with good ideas and guidance to help us achieve the perfect day. She was particularly good at putting everything we discussed in writing so we knew exactly what to expect. Her recommendations were all excellent and suited what we wanted. Alix also ensured out guests who are staying in the hotel were well looked after and had any extra's they required. She was very discreet on the day while ensuring everything ran smoothly. I had tried several venues before talking to Alix and had been put off as others seemed uninterested in me because I only wanted a small wedding with 30 guests. Alix, however, seemed delighted to speak to me ... Read more

Pricing: Having gone around Maidenhead and reviewed all the other venues on offer in this area, Frederick's provided us with the best deal for the facilities being provided. The general impression is that Frederick's is expensive due to its good reputation. This could not be further from the truth. Facilities: Amazing. Fredericks is small (but still with lots of room for flexibility in setting up your wedding). It is intimate and offer great dining facilities. My husband and I had a separate kids party which Frederick's gladly accommodated and supported. Our guest were free to roam and sit in other breakout out areas to get away from the hustle and bustle of the wedding if they wanted to. Food: Frederick's ... Read more

our wedding was in March 2015 at Fredricks hotel and spa and we had Alix as our wedding planner. She was absolutely fantastic as planning it and keeping us up to date! As in South African she even managed to get the head chef from Shaka Zullu in London to do our food as I wanted it to be traditional South African food. All I can say is well done to that Alix, it was amazing. She knows her stuff!
by Sara Loughlin on Sat, 28th November, 2015
What a perfect place for a wedding! Mike and I did our research with venues and felt so blessed when we stumbled across Fredricks!! The packages they offered were varied with lots of different options to choose from to suit our needs. Incredibly good prices too! I think we would have saved about £1500 than if we had our sort of package anywhere else. I can't speak highly enough of our experience at Fredricks. Alix, the wedding coordinator made us both feel so welcome and at ease straight away (we'd met with a few others and she was by far the nicest!). She showed us around giving us ideas and we just fell in love with the place immediately! Such ... Read more

My Wife Jo and I had our wedding reception at Fredricks , was organised by the staff and they did all that was asked and needed in the reception room we used, even making some suggestions to add the special day ,we where welcomed with open arms, the building was perfect and the gardens well maintained, all added to allow perfect photographs to be taken, the staff were warm and very polite and helped in anyway possible. The we stayed in was neat and tidy. Last the food was perfect.
by Emma Brookman on Tue, 24th November, 2015
A fantastic venue! Fredricks gave us a perfect setting for a perfect day. Alex was always available to advise and offer the benefit of her experience. Our guests have all said the atmosphere created was terrific. The staff made the whole day seems effortless due to their hard work and discrete organisational skills. I could do it all again!
by Stacey on Fri, 20th November, 2015
From the second that Alix replied to my initial wedding enquiry, I knew I was in great hands... Alix was outstanding - patience, fast response, and completely understood what I wanted from my day. The planning stage could not have been easier. The day itself was incredible - Alix was there on the day, which was very comforting, and everything went perfectly. Fredrick's is an outstanding venue, with outstanding service and outstanding food. I wouldn't change a thing about my wedding day!
by Louise Joubert on Sat, 14th November, 2015
Fredricks Hotel and Spa is a superb wedding venue, as soon as we walked into the hotel it had a warm and friendly atmosphere. The size of the hotel is not too big and not too small and feels quite homely as we didn't want a huge grand venue where you could feel lost in. However it's not only the venue itself but the staff and wedding coordinator, Alix, who were all amazing. Alix was extremely helpful and organised in the run up to our big day, and on the day was on hand to make sure everything ran smoothly. On the day all the staff were so kind and friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us. ... Read more

I highly recommend Fredrick's Hotel Restaurant and Spa as a wedding venue! Alix (Wedding planner) and her team were absolutely fabulous in ensuring my special day was everything I'd ever dreamed of. My husband and I wanted a venue which included flexibility around our requirements and this is exactly what we received from Fredrick's. Nothing was too much trouble. Fredrick's were able to assist us in all aspects of the wedding day including helping us with other suppliers. We were able to have regular meetings and discussions with Alix in the lead up to the big day and on the day itself Alix handled all the preparations which allowed me to relax and enjoy the time with my family - ...

From the moment we viewed Fredricks as a potential venue for our wedding reception, we loved it! A beautiful hotel with lovely gardens, amazing food, and helpful staff including the wedding co-ordinator Alix who helped us with all the details of our reception and answered no end of questions from us. This venue really does have it all and would definitely recommend as a wedding reception venue!
by Alan & Maria Jones on Fri, 13th November, 2015
Fredrick's Hotel Restaurant and Spa was just the perfect venue for our wedding on 30th May 2015. The facilities provided were excellent, from the welcoming reception area, the comfortable and clean rooms, the food and drinks supplied in the restaurant and function room, to the beautifully-maintained gardens. All the staff were welcoming and friendly, but also extremely efficient. Nothing was too much trouble, and all queries were dealt with promptly and with a smile. We would particularly like to mention Alexandra Matania, the hotel's conference and wedding organiser. From our initial enquiry the previous year, through every subsequent meeting up to the big day itself, she was a model of efficiency and friendliness. Nothing was too much trouble: she was ...

by Claire Bridge on Fri, 13th November, 2015
When we got engaged everyone said planning a wedding would be stressful. We can honestly say ours wasn't at all - and this was all down to Alix. Her communication was second to none; nothing was too much trouble, she always responded to emails quickly and answered all my queries thoroughly. She was incredibly flexible, allowing us to personalise our wedding breakfast completely which for a hotel 'package deal' was incredible. She clearly loves her job and puts 100% into everything she does.
by Samantha Lapworth on Fri, 13th November, 2015
We had our whole wedding at Fredrick's and it was lovely. We were looking for an intimate day & Fredrick's offered it all. The gardens were a perfect setting for guests to mingle and the food was wonderful. All the staff that helped on the day of our wedding were great.
by Alex & Julie Butt on Fri, 13th November, 2015
Alix Matania and her team at Fredricks were fantastic; their attention to detail and the overall wedding organisation was superb, which led to a perfect wedding day on 18th September 2015. All our guests said this was the best wedding they went to and this was in no small way due to the venue and the skills of the wedding organiser - Alix Matania. I would have no hesitation in recommending Fredricks and especially Alix.
by Gemma willems on Fri, 13th November, 2015
Simon and I got married at the Fredricks hotel in March. We attended a wedding fair at the hotel in January and booked our date. We only had 8 weeks to plan our wedding due to personal reasons and Alix and the hotel staff supported us and helped to make our day absolutely perfect. This hotel is a beautiful wedding venue and the food was delicious - all of our guests have said its the best wedding food they have ever had. We were very pleased with the service we received and would recommend this venue to anyone planning to get married.
by Gemma on Fri, 13th November, 2015
When looking for a venue i found it quite daunting! Everywhere i went i just felt like they wanted the booking it put me off so i stopped looking for a while. Then i made an appointment to see Fredrick's and from the minute i walked in i had a good feeling then i met Alex the wedding coordinator and it was confirmed that my feeling was right and this was the place for us! Nothing was too much trouble we had an amazing wedding coordinator looking after us, Alex was always on the other end of the phone called me back if she was busy never left me waiting and tried her utmost best to help me and send ...

We had a wonderful wedding at Fredrick's. From the first moment we walked in the place felt right. Unlike many other venues we considered we felt from the very start that the staff genuinely wanted to assist us in having a special wedding day- not wanting to fleece us for every penny. The exclusive use option we chose allowed us to really make the place feel like our own and the staff treated us like we were almost permanent residents. We were only free at weekends for meetings with the wedding planner so attended several open days where we were always made to feel welcome and Alix would always find time even though these must have been her busiest days ...

I've never written a review before but I had such an amazing experience at Fredrick's I felt the need to. Even before we booked our wedding i found Alix (the wedding planner at Fredrick's) to be so professional and helpful, this continued all the way up until our wedding day. On the day i had every confidence Alix had planned to perfection. The food was amazing, the staff were so helpful and also very professional, many of my guests have also commented on this since. I chose Fredrick's as for me it isn't a 'generic wedding venue' it has character and charm. We had a fantastic day - thank you to Alix and the staff at Fredrick's for all you ... Read more

Getting married at Fredrick's Hotel & Spa was the best decision we have ever made! The venue was really nice, food was excellent and most of all our wedding planner Alix was amazing! Alix is not only a friendly and professional person but she also is always happy to help. Her enthusiasm and support was greatly appreciated. She is fantastic and a fabulous event/wedding planner who will make anyone's day very special...Francesco and his staff were also brilliant. Thanks so much once again to the whole staff, we will never forget this special day...this was the best day of our lives. Thank you Alix, Emma, Francesco, Bob and Nelena ! You were all brilliant! Thanks a million x

We held our wedding here on the 31st December 2014. The event was coordinated by Alix who could not have been more helpful and our day was perfect. The hotel staff were very helpful and the restaurant manager most attentive. The food was beautiful and exceeded our expectations. Accommodation was good and the bridal suit a great size for the bridal party to get ready in. We could not fault the hotel and would highly recommend.

my husband and I had the most amazing day at Fredricks hotel and spa.Not only we enjoyed it but all of our guests enjoyed the day tool.The whole experience from start to finish!

Great great venue, great great food. Great great staff, could not wish for more!!!!
by Martin & Bruce on Thu, 23rd October, 2014
We booked Fredrick's as an exclusive use taking all hotel rooms from Friday through to Sunday morning. We wanted a homely, private wedding where guests could feel comfortable knowing that everyone in attendance was there for our wedding celebrations only. Fredrick's were first class at making this idea work from rejigging menu's, restaurant times and general change of normal hotel business. We worked with management on a special room rate, menus, drinks, corkage and special needs for our guests due to this. I think the layout of the hotel is a huge bonus for weddings. Because this is a small hotel all areas are interlinked. We had all doors open so whether you were dancing in the function room, drinking ... Read more

My daughter had the most fantastic wedding day held at fredricks hotel, we could not have asked for anything more from a hotel. The reception area is stunning, lovely restaurant, cocktail bar and function suite, and beautiful garden, made it a perfect wedding venue, along with the bedrooms which where first class. As for the staff we could not have had better service, from the manager, the wedding organiser, the receptionists, the waiting staff and bar staff, they were all excellent, very friendly and very helpful. The food was also excellent and we had lots of comments from our guests, will be booking our next event there without a dout.

We had our reception at Fredrick's on the 22nd August 2014, ours was a very small wedding reception. Despite our small party Alix was brilliant with arranging even the smallest details right up until the night before the wedding. She had some great ideas and really helped us to organise a beautiful reception for us and our guests. We were made to feel that we were the most important wedding that was being organised at all times. The function room looked fabulous, I gave Alix my decorations and theme and let her deal with the artistic side of things and I was not disappointed. The food was incredible and even dietary requirements were met for my guests that had specific ... Read more

We got married in church on sat 6th sep 2014. We had our wedding reception at Fredricks and I must say, what a fantastic beautiful venue. The function room setup was outstanding and beautiful. the staff were all pleasant and couldn't help enough. They were always checking that everything was going ok and if we required any further assistance then they had it sorted within minutes. Alex the wedding co ordinator was fantastic, she accommodated our every need. She was supportive and made our day perfect in every was possible. If you want a perfect venue for your wedding then please visit Fredricks and see what they have to offer, you won't be disappointed at all.

We got married on 15th March 2014. Everything was perfect. The food, the staff, the venue. All our guests commented on how beautiful and relaxing the venue was and some even took advantage of the spa. The hot and cold stone massage is heavenly! Alex helped us with everything that we needed, catered to every whim, no matter how strange or bizarre it was. Really eased a lot of our worries, its was so good to know that she was taking care of the small little things. The staff really did go above the call of duty. Granted Its not a grand stately home, but its something much more personal and intimate and relaxing. For our family orientated wedding it ... Read more

We had such a wonderful day and night at Fredricks for our wedding. I stayed the night before and the staff were very accommodating of all our requests. Service was excellent, food was wonderful and the overall co-ordination was brilliant. Everyone said what a beautiful venue it was! The rooms are comfortable, the Spa is gorgeous! - can't recommend it highly enough.
by Dave & Cathy Edwards on Wed, 25th June, 2014
Alix and her staff made our day superb and everything went off without a hitch. We couldn't have asked for a more attentive group of staff. Our wish was their command. Alix stayed with us until the wedding breakfast to ensure everything ran smoothly, even then she was contactable by phone. It was a privilege to be able to have the first outside ceremony under the arbour at Fredrick's. It was touch and go during the morning but by the time I came out of the Spa and swimming pool the sun was out and drying the grass, a little cloud during the ceremony but that kept it cool. The whole day had a relaxed feeling to it and there ... Read more

I have no hesitation in recommending Fredrick's Hotel & Spa as a wedding Venue, Not only is the venue reasonable priced but it's absolutely stunning. We organised our wedding with the help of Alix in 3 months and nothing from the hotel side of things was stressful at all, Alix went out if her way to make our day truly special. The whole event from start to finish was perfect and we couldn't have wished for a more amazing day. We received nothing but compliments regarding our choice of wedding venue and the food,which I have to say was delicious. Thank you Alix and all the Fredrick's team for all your help and hard-work.

We were choosing between a country house, manor house and the Fredrick hotel. We went for the hotel because it basically provides all the criteria we required: a Gazebo wedding, privacy, accommodation and friendly staffs (if you are at the stage of choosing your wedding venue, these would definitely be the main areas you wish to consider). We had a lovely wedding, with the help from friends, suppliers and hotel staffs, everything has been laid out exactly what I wanted. Everyone (including our parents) said we have made the right decision and it was a beautiful venue located in an amazing area. My bridesmaids even did a sight-seeing on the next day after they tried the spa facilities. Thanks to ... Read more

We got married in a little church in Twyford and had our wedding reception at Fredricks and it was perfect. We were very surprised with the value as it was a lot cheaper than other places we had seen and you could tailor so much of it to your own taste. The venue is lovely and has beautiful gardens, plenty of parking and a really nice bridal suite. Our dedicated wedding co-ordinator couldn't have done enough for us and was always available to meet at short notice. All the staff were phenomenal and nothing was ever too much. We were made to feel really special and had the perfect wedding day.
by Eileen Chislett on Mon, 1st July, 2013
We were impressed initially by the value for money that was on offer compared to many other venues in the area and, as soon as we began to talk to the team, we were convinced that this was the right place. The hotel looks good and has a beautiful terrace and garden which are easily accessible from both the arrival areas and the reception room. It is very well situated for access by car (plenty of parking) and rail and for the town centre. The team could not have been more helpful and friendly with all the planning, and, on the day, everything was prepared and delivered with quiet efficiency and style. We were all well looked after throughout the ... Read more

We had our whole wedding at Fredricks and it was absolutely perfect. We were looking for a small intimate but classic day & Fredricks offered it all, from the planning to the big day itself. I loved our private dining and tasting experience and the personal attention we were given from the chef and maitre'd. The gardens were a perfect setting for guests to mingle pre the ceremony,followed by photographs & pre reception drinks. The food was wonderful, the service amazing and the ambiance fantastic. We were helped by the weather, however I believe they would still have created a wonderful experience even if the day had been brought inside. We continued into the evening, where the food & service ... Read more

We married in a church in Marlow, with the reception held at Fredericks. The venue is PERFECT. Every time we spoke to a member of staff nothing was too much. Our dedicated wedding coordinator was lovely, and always on hand. On the day, all the staff were simple wonderful and the food out of this world. All our guests commented on how lovely the food was, “the best at any wedding”. We had about 90 guests, which was a good number for the size of the room. The room was dressed immaculately. Our wedding coordinator had the task of dressing our tables, she even made sure every single favour and name tags were perfectly positioned on all the tables. All ... Read more

As the father of the bride and an owner of an events business - I guess I was always going to be a demanding customer! My daughter's wedding was arranged at relatively short notice but, from my first meeting at Fredricks, I was confident that all of my requests would be recorded, confirmed and actioned. There were obviously many, many highlights of the day but, regarding Fredicks, I would list them as: 1. The staff were very flexible and there to help us enjoy our day - how often do you visit places where you feel like you have interrupted the staff's chat? 2. The food and wine served was of a high quality. 3. As a relatively small hotel ... Read more

We had our whole wedding, ceremony and reception at Fredricks. We had our own wedding planner who was brilliant, whatever we requested, it was never a problem, and also suggested great ideas which we would not have thought of. Everything went exactly to plan, amazing! For the food, Fredricks gave a taster session, which was great, a lovely evening, our own private candlelit room, being waited on with really well presented delicious food plus wine, all for free! The ceremony room was beautiful, with clothed chairs and sashes, and the reception room was stunning, again with clothed chairs, sashes, candleabres, it was beautiful and overlooked the gorgeous gardens. All our guests thought that the meal was lovely, really well presented ... Read more

The hotel were very helpful and made everything very easy to oraganise, we asked lots of questions and everything we asked for was fulfilled. The function room and bar area were just the right size for us, we had around 90 guests and it was comfortable. The honey moon suite is amazing, very big & spacious.
