Well.....where do we begin? Anyone who is considering booking the Best Western Yew Lodge Hotel for their wedding/reception....it will be the best decision you could ever make!

My wife and I could not have asked for a better venue to host and celebrate our wedding ceremony and reception. The venue and it's staff looked after not only us but all our guests on the day and they couldn't have been more accommodating. The year leading up to the wedding we had regular meetings with the venues wedding coordinator, Penny Dable, and what a lady she is. Penny's attention to detail and planning was absolutely flawless, she tailor made our wedding to suit our requirements and assisted with every detail forgetting nothing. No request was too small, silly or complicated, Penny made it happen. Massive thumbs up to Penny! We had Mark as our Master of Ceremony on ... Read more

What can we say about our wedding day at Yew Lodge hotel? It was an amazing day. Thanks in no small part to Penny and her fantastic team of staff. From our first meeting with Penny she completely put us at ease. Making us believe in their expertise and experience. And can I say they never failed to deliver on their promises. They gave us excellent value for money. With no expense spared on the day with all the included items such as the food. The room and particularly the flowers. They were just gorgeous. As with all weddings there were a couple of last minute dramas, people running late etc. But Penny went above and beyond, even waiting outside ... Read more

From start to finish we couldn't have wished for a more professional and friendly approach to our Wedding. Penny was always available when we needed to ask questions and went the extra mile by offering to do things such as designing and printing table names and the seat planner. She liaised with our photographer and table decorator, amongst others, to ensure that our day was organised and stress free. Our MC was also organised and checked everything was ok throughout. We both felt that Penny took a real interest in making sure our day was perfect and was more than simply another couple getting married. When we arrived everything had been set up and all staff adapted to an altered ... Read more

We got married here on 15th April 2017 from the minute we viewed the venue right up until the day we could not fault Penny she was very responsive, helpful and nothing was too much. I am coeliac and therefore eat a gluten free diet this was no problem and the hotel was even able to do a gluten free buffet in the evening. The wedding day was better than we could have ever asked for and we would highly recommend this venue to anyone wanting to get married. Many Thanks Mr & Mrs Summers

The team at the Yew Lodge are absolutely fantastic. Penny listens to your ideas, shares her experience and plans to the minute meaning that on the day it was like clockwork. Penny has a wealth of knowledge and experience and never decides for you but allows the time and space to share ideas and thoughts and change of minds as much as possible. We felt supported all the way by Penny, she even arranged for us to be able to practice our first dance on the dance floor! Working with Penny felt like having a big sister on the journey with us! The beauty of the Yew Lodge meant that our DJ's, photo booth and more importantly Photographer Hayley knew ... Read more
