  • Gertler BatMitzvah Afternoon Tea - 07.06.2015

    Hi Jade

    Hope you had a good break.

    Sunday was lovely and the weather was unbelievable. Everyone was very helpful and accommodating: we moved our balloons to the main room behind the band, and the band started on the terrace before moving in later. It all went very smoothly and the food was great. Thanks so much for everything. Wish we had another ‘do’ to organise, will have to think of an excuse!

    Many thanks,

    Best, Frances

  • Rabin BatMitzvah – 27.06.2015

    HI Jade

    We had a great time over the weekend – thank you for all your help in helping us organise it. I have to specifically mention Mandy who was hugely attentive throughout the entire event including some slightly stressful times – but she dealt with everything very calmly and efficiently. We have had great feedback from our guests on the food – they all loved it . And it was really great staying at the hotel on Friday and Saturday nights – the rooms were lovely.

    So – all in all – great.

    Thanks again for all your help.

    Kind Regards

    Lizzie and Adam

  • Hen Party Dinner – 29.08.2015

    Dear Jade

    All our family and friends were really impressed and very pleased with the venue, the food and the service. Daniella and her team were exceptionally pleasant and helpful in every way that was requested. Our stay for the night followed by a leisurely breakfast was equally enjoyable.

    Thank you once again for all your help in organising the event for us.

    Kind regards

  • St Albans & Harpenden Food & Drink Festival, Awards Dinner – 05.10.2015

    Hi Jade

    I just wanted to drop you an email to thank you and your team for last night. It was a fantastic evening and we really appreciate all of your efforts in ensuring that everything went to plan. Can I say a particular thanks to Mandy who co-ordinated her staff beautifully and helped us enormously on the night – she was a star!

    Thank you again, Jo

    Hi Jade,

    Thanks so much for everything that you both did to make the Festival look so very professional and slick. The comments on the food were overwhelmingly positive. Leaps and strides ahead of anything else that’s been served for a number of years. We were particularly blown away by the seasonal relevance of the menu and the quality and taste of all the dishes, which were served promptly, on time and without fuss.


    Kind regards, Helen

  • Kabel BatMitzvah – 11.10.2015

    Hi Jade

    Both Sue and myself wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the team for making last Sunday so amazing. The event itself was perfect. When we both walked in before the party started and saw the room all setup it was great not having to worry about anything. The whole evening ran very smoothly. We have had so many great comments about it all, especially the quality of the food.

    Once again many thanks from both of us

  • Reception for Doreen Mallows – 16.10.2015

    Good morning Jade,

    I’m still in the clouds at the moment. I came down with a big bump on Monday!

    We have got so many thank you letters to write we will be at it for hours and days I think! You and your colleagues truly did us proud on Friday. We cannot thank you enough. The attention to detail, quality of food and display and the service we received was excellent. We received a lot of positive feedback from our guests.

    Take care Jade and thank you once again.

    Best Regards, Lynne

  • Baby Shower – 07.11.2015

  • Surprise 40th Birthday – 07.11.2015

    Hi Jade,

    Thanks for your message yesterday. Apologies I have not got back to you yet. The party went off very well and everyone had a great time. My wife was blown away and really enjoyed herself. Thank you for all your help and to the team who supported us on the night.

    Best regards, Brad

  • 70th Birthday Party – 17.11.2015

    Hi Jade,

    The event went really well thank you…the room was amazing and we were very happy we chose to go for that part of the main ballroom…lighting, space etc. was all perfect.

    We had a couple of last minute additions and your team couldn’t have been more helpful on the night accommodating them. Food was also of a very high standard considering the need for so many meals at the same time. All the staff we dealt with were very helpful. Struggling to think of anything negative really; breakfast was also good on the morning after.

    Would certainly recommend the hotel for future functions, and thank you once again for your part in making it a success.

    Kind regards, Andrew

  • Surprise 60th Birthday – 21.11.2015

    Hello Jade

    I just wanted to thank you personally for all the co-ordination that went into planning my birthday party and for ensuring all the staff knew to keep the guests out of the way until I got to the party room!

    I set out from home expecting to be doing something with our 2 sons and daughters-in-law! I was absolutely amazed to see the afternoon and evening unfolding with more and more people emerging along the way.

    The whole evening was a real treat and I had a ball. Everything went so smoothly – from the food at tea and dinner to the entertainment in the evening. The venue was lovely as were our rooms. All in all it was a perfect weekend from my point of view.

    Many thanks indeed for your part in making it all go so well. Please convey my thanks to all the staff who were involved along the way. Every aspect of the service was excellent.

    Kindest regards, Ann

  • Claire Levy – Celebration of Life 08.01.15

    Dear Lucy

    Thank you and the F&B team very much for ensuring Ed’s event went smoothly. I have had great feedback about the afternoon tea.

    One person in particular who reviews his afternoon teas round the country said that the macaroons were the best he had ever tasted.

    People were not in a hurry to leave which is a good sign for me and I’m glad they were able to enjoy Sopwell’s hospitality.

    Kind regards


  • Julia Porter-Robinson - Retirement Dinner 07.02.15

    Hi Lucy

    Thanks for getting in touch.

    We had a wonderful evening thank you, and I must thank you for all your efforts in arranging this, and also please pass on my warmest thanks to Mandy who did a stirling job of keeping everything running smoothly.

    Everyone had a superb time, and remarked on how beautifully prepared the table was. I met the lady setting it in the afternoon but can’t remember her name, however the pride she took in her table was just wonderful and worth every second she spent. Please tell her how dazzled everyone was…

    Anyway, sincere thanks for a spectacular night; everyone involved should be very pleased with the event.


  • Peter Aubusson – Celebration of Life 30.04.15


    Thank you for all your help with the arrangements for the Celebration of Life for my wife, Marjorie, last Thursday. Everything went off smoothly and helped create just the sort of event we wanted.

    Would you please pass on my sincere thanks to all the team involved at Sopwell House as they carried out their tasks very efficiently and helpfully.  The attention to detail and quick response to a few of our last minute minor requests was greatly appreciated.  Many of our guests have remarked on how impressed they were with the venue and the service we all received.

    You and your colleagues made the organisation and delivery of the function very easy at a difficult time for us all.

    Thank you again to you and all the team at Sopwell House.

    Best regards

  • Mylan Summer Event – Maxine Hibbert 15.06.15

    Good morning All,

    Now that the dust has settled, I wanted to take this opportunity to write to you, to thank you all for the part you played in the success of the BBQ last week.

    Lauren – I want to extend my thanks to you for inviting me to the launch of the Mews rooms and your patience with me over the last few years of trying to put these types of events into Sopwell.

    Perina – thank you for the work on the allo9cation of the rooms.  This was a huge success as all the guests were very impressed with their rooms – especially those in the mews.  The hot tubs were the talk of the evening!

    Lucy – thank you so much for your help in arranging the BBQ itself.  Your help in arranging the speakers at the last moment so that music can be played was appreciated.  The Mojitos in a jar went down very well and the food!  What can I say about the food, except that if I was not there in a professional capacity I would have made more of a pig of myself.

    Tony was absolutely brilliant – can you please pass on my heartfelt thanks for the way he looked after my group and kept the drinks flowing.  He definitely helped to make the evening the success it was.

    All in all I could not have asked for better service, better weather or a better venue.  Everything wentlike clockwork and you helped me to look good!

    Thank you all, and I hope to be booking more events at Sopwell soon.

    Kind regards,
