What our customers say

We chose to have our wedding reception at The Duke of Marlborough Hotel a decision which resulted as the best choice we've made for our wedding. From the qulity menu selection to the time management, our guest had nothing but great things to say. Beautiful, delicious food and luxurious rooms, the duke was thoroughly enjoyed. All the staff and managers at the Duke were genuinely accommodating and lovely. Big thank you to Ida Birch, thank you for helping us with all the wedding reception planning work. Great prepackaged plans which helped us stay on budget while giving us the flexibility to accommodate our specific wants. Duke of Marlborough Hotel means so much to us now, we enjoyed every moment staying there. Oh, thank you for the suprise gift from the Duke of Marlborough, how kind! Jaysi & Kaleb
