Find your perfect wedding venue

. .

The Good Hotel Guide was built on an ethos of quality and identity, and at no time are those elements more important than when you’re planning a wedding. A time to look after and entertain all the people who are closest to you, the hotels we have found, from boutique hotels to grand country house hotels, city townhouses to the most elegant of rustic country pubs, all include those highly desired qualities in our collection of UK wide hotel wedding venues.

The collection includes a wide variety of UK destinations, not just in terms of counties and cities, but varying from lakeside hotels near Windermere to mountainside locations in Wales, seaside hotels in Devon and Highland hotels in Scotland.

Each has its own approach to weddings, and many have in-house planners who make the whole process that much more carefree for the bride and groom. Food is a high priority in most places, and a tricky one to coordinate outside a hotel venue, adding another tick box in the reasons for choosing a hotel as your wedding venue.

Whether you’re looking for a grand event at the likes of Lewtrenchard Manor or a small and intimate occasion, there’s something for every wedding occasion amongst this collection.
