Smokies was the perfect wedding venue for our reception. Sophie, the wedding planner did an amazing job helping us with our plans as we didn't really know what we needed. She gave us advice when we asked and made sure they had the only drinks my mum likes stocked. Everything ran really smoothly so

we could relax and enjoy our night. There was a great selection for the buffet and everyone said the food was great.
The Medlock Suite was the perfect size for the number of guests we had and was accessible for our elderly grandparents as it was flat and the toilet was close by. We used their venue dressers, Joyous Moments and the room looked stunning! The bridal suites are large, modern and comfortable and the light is perfect for makeup. I would 100% recommend!

We had our wedding on 27th December 2019 and wow I was blown away.
We booked our wedding 18 month beforehand. Throughout the process Sophie was always emailing to check we was okay and to see if we needed a meeting to discuss anything. Whenever we needed her she was there to help us, which made our

experience so special and easy.
The night before the wedding we stayed in the bridal suite, I've never seen a room like it, it was spacious,clean, beautiful.
The wedding day. Everything ran so smooth. We couldn't make it to breakfast as hair and makeup was there, Smokies went above and beyond and made us a breakfast buffet and brought it to our rooms. Sophie also came up to greet me and check that everything was okay, which was amazing.

The ceremony - the venue dressing was breath taking, it was beautiful. I had 2 children singing at my ceremony and Sophie went above and beyond again and spoke to them so they knew exactly what they were doing.

Then on to out meal, again the room look absolutely amazing, all our favours were out etc. Smokies staff announced us into the room, and then the meal arrived. The food was fresh, warm and delicious. Smokies catered for all the guest who had allergies to, which was fab because we had quite a few in our wedding party. Everyone commenting on how delicious our food was and friendly all the staff were.
The Evening, Again a fast turn around and the room was ready, they set my sweet table up and anything else I wanted in the room. All these things I discussed with Sophie before the wedding and I didn't have to say anything on the day, it just happened. Another amazing thing.

I need to just mention Sophie, Preston,Miguel and the lovely lady who announce us and directed the staff. We couldn't have done our wedding day without you, you went above and beyond all day and made our day the most special day of our lives.
Thank you so much Smokies for given us the wedding of our dreams.
Love Mr and Mrs Dugdale

My husband and I had our evening wedding reception in the Medlock suite last weekend after marrying abroad. Sophie, our wedding coordinator was great from beginning to end. She was on hand whenever we had a query and always responded to my emails quickly even when she was at home. We booked the room

around 8 weeks prior and Sophie was very accommodating to all our needs as we wanted a very simple no fuss party. We were able to amend our package and remove items that we did not require or could arrange ourself. The room was a very good size and very spacious and was available early on the day for us to decorate ourselves. The buffet was really nice with plenty of food for our guests who all commented how nice it was. The bridal suite was included in the package which was lovely, this was on the top floor of the hotel with other superior suites. The room was very modern, large bed, hot tub and living area. We can not fault our evening wedding reception here and had a fantastic night!

We had our wedding breakfast and reception at Best Western Smokies Hotel and I can honestly say it was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble.

Myself and bridesmaids stayed the night before and because breakfast was later than when we planned, Sophie our wedding manager, arranged for tea, coffee,

bacon and sausage sandwiches to be brought to our room so we could have breakfast while getting ready which was great! We left a lot of stuff in the room we got ready in and smokies moved all the stuff for us to the wedding suite saving us running around. The rooms where a great size also especially as there was 10 of us! We also asked for ice which was brought to our room quickly.

The guests where welcomed with drinks and we also hired a magician we met at the wedding fayre at Smokies which guests loved!

We was shown our room before the guests and everything was set up perfectly, but they did ask if there was anything we wanted to change which was great. The duty manager Jodie put all out home bought favors and presents at the correct places for our special guests, again saving us having to rush around.

The food was amazing! The best wedding breakfast we have ever had! Guests where coming telling us how amazing and tasty the food was which is great as sometimes wedding breakfasts are small and average but this meal was delicious and filling.

The turn around was quick and easy and everyone loved how big the room was. We had the medlock suite.

The buffet for the reception also went down a storm! Lots of food for what you pay and all very tasty!

The evening went to plan with the first dance and cake cutting being announced on time.

Anything left in the room after the evening ended (we paid for the late bar which was a great option to have was put away safely for us until the morning.

Staff were attentive and couldn't do enough for us!

We would highly recommend the best western smokies for weddings and we are so glad we didn't go anywhere else.

Thankyou to Sophie, Jodie and all the team for the best wedding we could have asked for!

from the big day as she managed everything, knowing that she had everything under control meant we knew that when we turned up everything would be perfect. The execution on the day was flawless from the Smokies staff, the food was delicious and plenty of it (no one went without or hungry) the bar was staffed and the DJ made sure the dance floor was never empty.
We couldn't of asked for anymore and can't thank Sophie and her team enough for making our day so special.

We have just had our wedding August 2019 and we couldn't of wished for a more perfect day. Our wedding was originally booked for April 2019 but we was under St Mary's hospital waiting for ivf then our surprise baby came along, we was in total shock. I really didn't want to be a pregnant bride as I

would of been 32 weeks pregnant and I had already bought my dress so I began to panic. We went in to smokies and spoke to Sophie and with no problems or inconvenience at all our wedding was rearranged that day which was a weight lifted off my shoulders :). Nothing is to much for the staff at smokies and they are so friendly and welcoming. From wedding open nights and appointments with Sophie running up to the wedding day I just knew I didn't have to worry about anything because they are so well organised and I also got lots of information through email about how the day was going to be run and any enquiries I made were answered asap. When we arrived on our wedding day everything was set out just how we wanted it and the medlock suite looked amazing just how we imagined. We had canapés and welcoming drinks, sit down meal then a buffet at night and the food is just fantastic and well presented just how you would want it on your special day and many of my guests was complimenting how lovely it was. The whole day just ran so smoothly I didn't have to worry about a thing I was so relaxed and enjoying myself, we just wish now that we could do it all again. The bridal suite is also amazing to finish off your special day staying in a luxury room :) I cant think of anything that I would of changed. You couldn't ask for a better wedding manager than Sophie she's brilliant and put my mind at ease :) I definitely recommend Smokies Hotel to anyone planning there perfect wedding day!

chocolate and raspberry cheesecake and what a great deal of choice at the evening buffet. There was plenty for everyone. The DJ Duncan was really accommodating to the many requests. The room felt so spacious and was decorated beautifully by Stef at Joyous Moments. Great accommodation, the bridal suite had recently been renovated, so everything was new.
Thanks so much for such a memorable and fantastic day!

Normally I would be saying where do we start but in this review that is easy, Sophie.  We visited 5 different venues in 2016 trying to find the perfect one for our special day but as soon as we met Sophie who filled us with her amazing experience and confidence we knew we had found the perfect

venue but most of all the right person to help us plan.  Right from the start nothing was too much to ask including visiting three more time to show parent's our choice and the groomsmen and bridal party where the big day would be. We arrived unanouce and it was never a problem Sophie and the team was 2nd to none. The weeks leading up to the wedding Sophie was brilliant, kept in touch to make sure we had everything planned and she was so accomodating with our guests menus and diartary requirements. Sophie I am so greatful that you were with us through every step of the way, the confidence you gave made us know our day would be so special, the team worked so well with you making sure that everyones meals were perfect on the day. Your hard work and team work shone and I can guarantee that every bride and groom are going to have the best day they could dream of in your hands guiding the team. Hope to hear from you and keep doing what you do best, you are a gem to smokies park they are very lucky to have you and I will be writing a personal Thank to smokies management for having such an inspirational team to ensure their brides and grooms have the best day of their life. Thank you so much for making our day and our guests who have not stopped talking about it. Xx

We had our wedding here last weekend and we couldn't recommend the place or the staff highly enough. Having looked at a lot of different venues, particularly hotels as that's what we wanted, Sophie made the decision easy from the first meeting. 'Everyone needs a Sophie when they get married'.

Read More

Nothing was too much trouble for her or any of the staff at the hotel, quickly answering all the different questions we had. Any time I had to phone the reception for different things, they were extremely helpful, friendly and efficient.

We had the Medlock Wedding Package, which included much more than just the standard room higher and food. The hotel had a contract with Joyous Moments (Stef), getting the table runners, chair covers, chair sashes and centerpieces included in the package. Stefs items are a level above the rest, when you see the rooms she has dressed compared to others, you can see what you pay for, a lot of attention to detail and top quality products.

We opted to have the additional cocktail bar run by the very helpful and friendly Miguel, which seemed to be a success with a lot of our guests.

The package we opted for included a wedding breakfast for up to 75 guests. Food for the wedding breakfast was of an extremely high standard, a lot of our guests commented on how impressed they were with the standard of food being served. Our evening guests were served with a hot buffet for up to a 150 guests, no part of the evening buffet went back to the kitchen, much to our disappointment as when we got to the buffet table it had already gone! Fantastic comments all round about the evening buffet.

The running of the day was flawless and professional, all down to Sophie who has amazing attention to detail, keeping in touch with us through every step in the weeks leading up to the wedding. We have lost count of the amount of amazing comments we received about Sophie running the day.

Thank you so much to everyone at Smokies for giving us our perfect day.
