We cannot thank you all enough! Emma, John and all the staff at the Clanard Court Hotel did such a fantastic job for our wedding, from start to finish. We had the best day of our lives at our wedding in your beautiful hotel. Emma went above and beyond from the moment we met her, until she walked me

down to the ceremony. I will always be grateful and cherish the memories.
I highly recommend having your wedding here. The setting is absolutely stunning, the alpacas are too cute, the food is mouth watering (all of of guests agreed) and the ballroom is perfect, looking out to a mature beautiful garden, which also had a kids cabin to entertain the children. We had an outdoor ceremony and it felt like we were abroad. We wish we could do it all again, and wouldn't change a thing.
Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts xx

We were married on July 24th, 2021 and had our reception at the Clanard Court Hotel. Emma was our wedding coordinator and from the moment we booked, and right through all stages of the wedding planning whilst dealing with COVID, she went above and beyond her duties to assist us. She was so helpful,

offered valuable guidance and was always friendly and approachable.

The hotel itself is immaculate, a picturesque ballroom with a private garden for you and your guests. Any time we visited the hotel, all the staff were courteous, which is a testament to the hotel management.
The service on the wedding day was more efficient than any wedding we had been at before. Despite a last-minute decision to push back on the dinner call to sit at the hotel's new outdoor bar area, we still enjoyed the drinks reception with our guests. The weather was glorious on our wedding day.

After our wedding, all our guests had glowing reviews for both the food and the hotel accommodation. The food was 5 stars, and even after our menu tasting, it still exceeded our high expectations.
John the Operations Manager was like Emma, friendly and approachable. Our families had arranged a video to be shown during the speeches, which was also last minute but John had no issues in setting up the presentation on the hotel's system.

If you are looking for a hotel with 5-star food and service, friendly staff, immaculate and picturesque interiors and grounds, and somewhere your guests will talk about long after your wedding, the Clanard Court is the hotel for you!
We would not hesitate in recommending the Clanard Court to anyone as a fantastic wedding venue.

We are so happy we decided to have our wedding at Clanard Court. Emma was great to deal with and it was no issue when we had to change our wedding date due to Covid restrictions. We had an amazing day and it's all thanks to the fabulous staff at Clanard. A special mention to Emma at the Revive

Beauty Rooms who did our makeup on the day and also to John who looked after us all evening. He really went above and beyond for us. The Clanard was a great choice for us because everything was on-site, including hair, makeup, our ceremony and reception. The food was delicious and the Hotel and grounds are stunning. The wedding decor is great and was one less thing for us to worry about.

We had the most amazing day for our wedding in the Clanard court hotel. We postponed our wedding date three times due to Covid, but Emma was so helpful and accomodating. Nothing was too much to ask, and the communication with the hotel was always easy with prompt replies to emails.

couldn't have gone better. Our food was terrific as always, and our three daughters loved the new kid's playhouse just off the Walled garden, so they are safe and enclosed!
