My husband and I are so happy we chose Stoke By Nayland as our wedding venue, they made everything so easy and the whole process went so smoothly from start to finish! From the complimentary wedding breakfast tasting, the excellent communication throughout and for asking for anything and the staff getting it done for you no problem. The venue is in a beautiful location, with the golf course as the surroundings, all you can see is green, lovely spa and facilities and the food is 10/10! The wedding day was amazing and we can’t thank enough our wedding coordinator Philippa and the general manager Josh who helped us arrange everything. Josh was excellent helping us set up the venue to ... Read more

Well! Stoke was absolutely outstanding from start to finish!! Planning a Wedding is hard work but the team here really have everything covered and filled me and my partner with so much confidence. The planning with Pippa was brilliant. She has a lovely character and comes across as having everything is hand with a real sense of calmness. We had a few dietary requirements which needed special attention and these were handled amazingly! All who had special requests for food came over and said how lovely it was that they were checked up on to ensure all was ok. Food was fab! The groom decided to go off menu and have his fave steak dinner and this was accommodated no ... Read more

We booked our wedding reception at SbN as the price was really decent. From the moment we started planning the staff communicated effectively and made us both feel very at ease. We met with Philippa and Natasha several times whilst planning. On the day SbN allowed us to set up during the day at any time we wanted. They even booked a table for everyone helping us to set up. (We obviously had to pay for food, but the booking made life easier). The SbN staff also dealt with the outside suppliers which helped us relax and enjoy our day. I went down to the spa for a makeup match, while down there I discussed many options for my make ... Read more

We chose to get married at Stoke by Nayland because of the amazing views but they gave us so much more. Communication throughout the wedding planning was amazing. There was always someone at the end of an email to answer my never ending questions!! From the moment I arrived the night before, to the minute I left the day after. The members of staff went above and beyond to ensure that we had the most special day. Every guest commented on how friendly and helpful the staff were and I agree whole heartedly. They were fun and professional at the same time. I wish I could do it all over again just to meet the staff again. Nothing was too ... Read more

We had an amazing time getting married at Stoke by Nayland. The venue has stunning views over the golf course and we got to have photos by the lake on the 10th hole. The staff were all very accommodating with our requests and nothing seemed too much trouble. Food was delicious and brought out hot and swiftly. Would highly recommend.

After a church ceremony, we had our afternoon and evening celebration at Stoke-by-Nayland Golf Club. It was absolutely everything we could have hoped for! Katie and Philippa helped us with our many questions and made sure all preparations were in place for the day to run like a dream. They went above and beyond to ensure that all of the details we wanted to include could be incorporated. They were consistently available via email and phone, which helped us to feel calm as we went into the day, knowing that they had taken care of everything. On the day itself, Natasha was in charge and made sure that everything happened in a timely and very professional way. The reception room ... Read more

Wonderful!! Everything from initial contact with Katie emails back and fourth, contact with the reception team for rooms and a late addition, there was not a thing that was too much trouble. I stayed the night before and had a good night sleep in the massive meyer suite, with plenty of space for me and my bridal party to get ready in. We had Harley the duty manager that day who could not do enough for us. Helping me with my dress, holding my flowers even having to succumb to the request of the various 5 year olds wanting a dance partner.

My husband and I got married here at stoke by nayland just recently on Friday 25th August 2016 and What a perfect choice we made!!!! Everything from the very start (planning) right up until leaving the hotel the day after wedding was just perfect. Katie - our wedding Planner was great, nothing was ever to much trouble, easy to chat with, if something was possible - it was done. Communication was great. Becky - Duty manager who ran out special day was great also, down to earth! Again, nothing was ever any trouble, very helpful and couldn't have run the whole day any smoother! The hotel itself nice & clean, food & drinks were reasonably priced And very tastey!! For ... Read more

A beautiful venue and we had a wonderful wedding. Thanks to Katie Whittaker, the wedding coordinator, and her team. Lovely food and very helpful staff. A few mix ups with room reservations but that was the only hiccup. If it wasn't for that, I would have given a 5 heart rating.

Where do we begin?! From the moment we first went to stoke by Nayland to look at the open wedding day, we both knew it was the place we wanted to get married, it was also the first place we visited but we knew straight away. The staff were extremely helpful, our wedding planner Katie Whittaker was always there if I needed any questions answering. We had our wedding on Friday 11th August 2107 & it was amazing. Our wedding planner on the day Mel was brilliant, we couldn't recommend stoke by Nayland enough! We shall be back to celebrate our first wedding anniversary next year & we already can't wait! The small little touches we had was amazing too

We got married at this hotel a week ago today and we literally cannot fault it. We looked at many venues and struggled to find one that was flexible without us incurring any extra costs. Stoke by Nayland were fantastic in accommodating all of our needs. The whole lead up and day went incredibly smoothly. A beautiful venue with an above attentive team. We had endless compliments from all our guests on the food and accommodation. We can't wait to go back for our first anniversary!

We had our wedding at Stoke By Nayland last weekend and it really was the best day of our lives! From start to finish, the staff couldn't do more for us, the day ran so smoothly and Becky, who ran the day, was always around if we needed anything. We didn't have to worry about a thing! All our guests had a fantastic time, enjoyed the food and, as many of them stayed over, the hotel booked us a private room the next day for breakfast which was great! We really can't thank Katie, Becky and their team enough!

We held our wedding at Stoke by Nayland last Friday and it was the most perfect day! The venue is stunning but the staff made the day run seamlessly! Katie was brilliant helping us plan our day. We can't thank Alex enough for running our wedding day! Everything went perfectly and if it didn't I was non the wiser! So many of my family and friends said how good he was and how impressed they were! He even looked after our daughter during the speeches so everyone could enjoy them! It really was the best day of mine and my husbands life and all our guests enjoyed it as much as we did! Thank you!

We had our wedding reception here at Stoke by Nayland golf club. Well I don't know where to start, it was absolutely amazing from start to finish . The grounds are beautiful and we got some lovely photos around the grounds using the golf buggys! The food was 5 star, all the guests were saying to us after the meal how much they enjoyed it. My guests arrived for welcoming drinks at 2.00pm and it just ran so smoothly drinks were ready. Meal was out on time, anything we needed all the staff were happy to help. Stoke literally sorted everything from start to finish even emptying our postbox and putting everything in my room! Thank you to Tash and ... Read more

We had our Wedding ceremony and reception at Stoke-by-Nayland Hotel earlier this month. From our time of booking the venue last year and up to and including our big day itself we had regular contact with our co-ordination Katie and nothing was too much trouble, and she answered all questions and queries and all our requests were met, even adding an extra day guest at short notice was not an issue. The hotel and grounds are beautiful. The food was all that we wished for and everyone's dietary requirements were met including guests that had food allergies. All our guests praised the quality of the food, the service and that it was hot which is no mean feat when catering ... Read more
