What our customers say
We are so glad we chose the Duke for our wedding day! All we really wanted was a waterfront ceremony, fantastic food and service, and to coordinate the day as easily as possible. The Duke absolutely delivered in all aspects and more! From our amazing wedding coordinator Ida, who was happy to answer as many emails as needed and officiated our wonderful ceremony, to Ellie the manager on the day who led impeccable service and was very approachable. The accommodation team were very prompt and friendly with emails and it was great to have so many guests staying close by on the day. The early check-in for the bride & groom the day before our big day was greatly appreciated with last minute planning and rehearsals up our sleeves! The food was seriously amazing and we had SO many comments about it, so thank you to the kitchen team! Thank you for the beautiful gift that was left for us on our wedding night, it was a wonderful surprise! I would absolutely recommend the Duke of Marlborough Hotel to any future couples looking for a wedding venue, fantastic value for money and great service all round. Thank you all so much, Amber & Braeden :)
