Surrounded by evergreen grounds, this hotel, based in Colchester, Essex, is a wedding venue offering a warm welcome. Boasting traditional fixtures and fittings, the venue has a grand gallery landing for wonderful aerial photos. Weather permitting, there's plenty of outdoor space to soak up the sunshine with an al fresco drinks reception, and the front entrance is often used as a backdrop for group photos. Wedding guests can check in with preferential rates to take advantage of the excellent leisure facilities, including a pool, sauna and gym.
Large ceremonies are conducted in the first-floor Balkan Suite (200 guests), while smaller parties are suited to the Claudius Suite (70 guests). The Balkan Suite, with its spacious foyer, large bar and restrooms, is the perfect self-contained space to hold receptions. The Courtyard Patio is a lovely outdoor area, which can be used in conjunction with exclusive-use of the restaurant.
We love... Meal tastings are complimentary for the soon-to-be-weds, and members of the bridal party can join for a small charge.
