Peter & Susie

Thank you so much for facilitating a 1st rate wedding day for us at Sopwell House. It will always  be a special memory for Susie and I and our family.

The challenges for all of us to hold any wedding ceremony and lunch were considerable during this crazy Covid time. Sopwell had just opened again ,but had done a much better job than the Grove in refurbishing your hotel and maintaining  your lovely gardens. And you had to contend with a flood just before our big day!  Nonetheless you all delivered as a team, with a special thank you to you, Gopi/team  and Ludovic on the day. A well delivered intimate wedding event.

Premal & Meghana

First of all, your venue Sopwell House is beautiful and we're really really happy we had our celebrations there.

The food, the location, the decor, the accommodation - everything was truly luxurious and gorgeous. We are very thankful for all the team members' hard work.

But above all, the service and support provided by Sonya Solanki was just exceptional. We came to Sonya with an impossible task - helping us arrange a covid wedding in 30 days. I appreciate you are busy, but please take a moment to acknowledge our appreciation and thanks to Sonya and the team...


"We just wanted to post a review of the amazing time we had as part of a wedding at Sopwell in September. From the knowledgable, helpful and kind wedding co-ordinators, through to the amazing food and beverage staff on the day, my sister and Rob truly had the wedding of their dreams. Special mention to Danielle and Vicki without whom we couldn't have put on such a spectacular event, but this was clearly a big team effort. Thanks so much guys! Anthony, Sally, Rob and all their guests."

"Can’t praise Sopwell enough!!! We had our big fat Greek wedding at Sopwell House on the 15th September and we couldn’t have wished for anything more. We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening - special thanks to Ludovic, Albino and Jessica for ensuring everything ran smoothly on the big day. Everyone has been so impressed with the food (best they’ve had at a wedding) super speedy service and going that extra mile!! We’ll be coming back to our special venue soon thank you all we are still buzzing."


"Wow! I love this beautiful hotel and the service is truly outstanding. We stayed in the Jasmine suite for our wedding which is gorgeous with a private hot tub. The staff were incredible and nothing was too much trouble, they also went above and beyond to make our wedding night extra special. A big thank you to Jenny who was extra helpful in sorting out rooms for our guests in the run up to the wedding. I can't wait to go back!"

Matt & Francesca

"We had a wedding with Sopwell House and it was amazing. From the very beginning, we had a wedding coordinator assigned to us (Jessica Archibald) who was fantastic and did a fabulous job of looking after us and planning the wedding to perfection with us. Mandy from the events team on the day looked after everything and it all went smoothly without any issues. I could not recommend Sopwell and the staff high enough, the venue looked amazing and everyone was professional + helpful. So a big thank you to them."
