Amazing staff and venure
We fell in love with the venue hoping to get married in 2020.
Robyn was great going though all our options and suggesting things we had completely overlooked
With the pandemic the hotel (Vicki and Robyn) have been amazing with keeping in contact though out and giving us as many options as possible to keep our day as stress free as can be.

We had our wedding at the Oxford Thames over the bank holiday weekend in August 2019 and couldn’t of had a better day or weekend! We first visited the hotel in 2018 and knew instantly that we wanted to get married here. Natalie was amazing and showed us around first, she was so enthusiastic and we just knew this was place for us. She even made sure she was there for the day and I’m so glad she was. She’s a star and true credit to the hotel. We then spoke and had meetings with Robyn who organised everything for us (who is also fab and a true credit) nothing was too much trouble even for our large guest list! From then on everything all planned out and went smoothly, more importantly we had so much fun with the most amazing memories. The hotel and grounds are just beautiful and the food was very yummy. Mark kept us all organised in the day, he was so professional but with humour and everyone had big smiles. Even 6 weeks later we are getting people say how amazing our day was. The staff at the hotel couldn’t of been more helpful and we truly want to thank everyone at Oxford Thames for making our wedding the best day ever! We can’t wait to visit again. Paul & Carly xx

We recently had our wedding reception here, Robyn was amazing and helpful throughout and put my mind at ease. When we arrived, the place looked amazing. The food was delicious and staff could not have been more accommodating and helpful to us and our guests on the day. It was a wonderful day.

Genuinely Perfect
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your colleagues for the amazing job everyone did on our wedding day! My guests were blown away not only by the beautiful venue but the food and how helpful the staff were! It was flawless from start to finish! The Master of Ceremony was so helpful and super friendly. He definitely made the day go very smoothly! I was fully prepared that there is no such thing as the perfect day and that there would be hiccups but as far as I’m aware there were none! It was genuinely the best day!

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Oxford Thames hotel, but more especially to Robyn for everything that she did for us. Her support, patience, and enthusiasm during the planning process made everything so much easier for us, and we really enjoyed working with her and the team. As for the day itself, it was just seemless. And even the weather played along! Please also thank the toastmaster for us. Many of the guests commented on how great he was!

We want to thank you and all the staff at Oxford Thames Hotel for the truly superb time we all had at our wedding over the weekend.

In particular, our gratitude to all the staff for their unfailing helpfulness, friendly yet professional manner, and just being there whenever needed. Also, the Wedding Breakfast exceeded our expectations - and the waiters and waitresses were lovely. I can't praise you all highly enough.

We loved every aspect of the hotel and its grounds, and are only sorry that we couldn't do justice to the gardens due to the weather - but never mind, we all just got on with having a great time in the various settings you provided.

Thank you Robyn for being a fantastic Wedding Coordinator. I hope your ears have been ringing for the last few days from the constant praise we've given you. I'll never forget our wonderful wedding weekend at the Oxford Thames Hotel.
