not have been more helpful. They were extremely professional but also warm and welcoming.
The layout of both the ceremony room and the wedding reception area was perfect.
Catering for our guests who had specific dietary needs was no problem at all.
We always knew that we would be in good hands with the Royal Marine but they far exceeded our expectations. We have no hesitation in recommending the Royal Marine hotel to anyone who is seeking the perfect venue for their wedding.

Our wedding reception at the Royal Marine Hotel was more than we could have hoped for. All the staff were extremely helpful and went out of their way to make it a fantastic day. In particular, Dhriti and her team were attentive to every detail. We live abroad and organised the wedding remotely but

this posed no difficulty due to the fact that the team were available for phone calls or video calls any time we needed guidance. Hayley and the reservation team were very efficient. The Royal Marine Hotel is a beautiful venue and our guests from abroad and Ireland were very impressed with both the hotel and its surroundings. The food and service on the night were excellent thanks to Jeff, the floor manager, Alicia, and the rest of the staff. Everything went very smoothly on the day but we had two stressful moments regarding the flowers and the dress (due to our own negligence) which Dhriti and the team solved immediately. We were extremely grateful for their help. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Royal Marine Hotel to any couple looking for a venue for their celebration. It was a wonderful day and our guests have all told us how much they enjoyed it.
