We have only amazing things to say about our experience at the Royal Marine.

Our wedding day was magic, the hotel was beautiful, but we really want to thank the staff that made it all happen.

Nothing was too much, Dhriti was so professional, kind and an amazing support on the day. Jeff was

'the man' when it came to helping us pick our meal, plan the seating, his experience is priceless, and as for Healey, she couldn't have done more for us, she didn't miss a beat.

All the staff on the day were just wonderful, so we really want to say a huge thank you to you all.

We would and will highly recommend the Royal Marine for future events.

Warm regards,

Donatella and Garrett

We had our wedding reception at the Royal Marine Hotel after having our service at the Maritime Museum. From the start of the planning right through to the last days of collecting decorations, the staff helped us with the utmost respect and kindness.
Dhriti was our wedding planner, and she was

always very communicative and helpful with every question we had, giving us sound advice and making sure the day went off without any issues. On the day, she was so great at getting guests to where they needed to be, as well as calming me and my husband after all the emotions of the service.
Additionally, Hayley at reservations helped immensely with room organisation. We had a few overseas guests, and she was more than accommodating to those who needed rooms on the night of the wedding. She went above and beyond, and we were so grateful.
Finally, Malcolm was an exceptional host during the evening of the wedding, helping us with every request our hearts desired. He was so kind and generous with his time, and we could not be more thankful.
All the staff, from the planning to reservations, security to management, we and our guests really felt welcomed and part of the Royal Marine family.
The food was also delightful and plentiful, and guests never felt that they were underfed. The treats were very tasty, and presented very neatly so thank you to the kitchen staff.
The night catered by the Royal Marine made me and my husband feel like we were royalty, and it is sure to be one of our best memories ever, thanks to the kindness, support and generosity of the hotel.

Thanks for your help with everything leading up and for your patience from the beginning as we were making up our mind. It all went great on the day, I know I at least was trusting that some of the details will go fine on the day and it really did, Dhriti really was a super help all the way through

the day, she radiates calmness and kept us on track. And Malcolm too in the evening - we had met him at the tasting and he is an absolute pleasure to deal with. Please pass on our thanks to both in particular but also all the other staff who were brilliant.

We had the most wonderful wedding experience at the Royal Marine Hotel. We are based in London and had family and friends traveling over from the U.S., UK and Ireland so we really wanted somewhere that highlighted Irish charm and hospitality. We cannot believe how many guests have commented to us

that we absolutely chose the best venue for our wedding. The hotel itself is so beautiful and we loved being able to have a view of the seafront during our reception. The staff at the Royal Marine Hotel were incredibly helpful in making sure everything went to plan and every detail was considered beforehand, especially as we were not local to the area. All of our wedding stress disappeared when we arrived because we were in such good hands and my husband and I were able to truly enjoy our wedding day without worrying about a thing! In particular, Jeff, Malcolm, and Dhriti went above and beyond to make sure all of our guests were looked after, not just on the wedding day itself, but the whole weekend! The Royal Marine Hotel holds a very special place in our hearts now and we cannot wait to visit again!
