Very nice experience at Hawkwell House.
Our experience for our Wedding with Hawkwell house hotel has been very nice, they have a very good organisation.
Alejandra has been our wedding planner, she is very professional and very great communicator, during our meeting she prepared us to make sure that everything would have been fine, also she has been so kind to be there during our ceremony to make sure that everything was fine.
All the team have been very helpful, they realised all our requests.
Hawkwell house hotel is very nice place, with parking or the guests, very welcoming place, nice garden, if you are lucky with weather you can use it for ceremony outside, if not you can use it to take amazing pictures outside.
Nice bar service, our ceremony room and lounge room for the lunch are very clean and nice, both of them have been set up with colour and decorations about our requests.
Hawkwell house hotel can provide to give you contacts regarding dj, decorations, flowers.
DJ service was very good and very professional, they followed all our instructions regarding music during ceremony and for our first dance.
Regarding the food, it is very nice and high quality, all our guests have been very happy regarding it.
Thanks to the team at Hawkwell House.

A big thank you to all of Hawkwell House
I'm talking, from the moment you walk through the door and greeted and meted, you are announced with a smile. From the reception service, to the bar service, through to the coordinators and bar staff. The evening team, and the night squad, all of you played the part for Cherie and myself to have the best wedding ever provided.
This day was truly brilliant. It could not be faulted.
The day was even better as the sun came out and blessed us all. But without you guys, this would not had been as good because as we know, all our friends and family all enjoyed this day, so without you. It would not had been so special.
one last thing...never throw away your beef chef, wow, everyone that ate the beef absolutely fell over heels for it, even if it was served cold (which it was not may I add) it would not matter, it would be eaten for many orders to come. the canapes through to the buffet was also mentioned as being very tasteful.
Thank you from Cherie and myself...

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
My husband (!!!!) was originally from Oxford and has always loved the area so after he popped the question (after 12 years of waiting) we knew we wanted to get married in the area. We came across Hawkwell House and fell in love...again!
Nothing has ever been too much trouble for the team. The grounds are beautiful for pretty much a city centre hotel and it was easy to get to for all of the guests getting here from around the UK.
We had the service and reception at Hawkwell House and were totally looked after, Alejandra worked with us brilliantly in coordinating all the details...not easy when mother keeps inviting guests! She is already on my Christmas card list and Gyula with his Operations team didn't rest until we did (in fact they probably worked after we rested to set up for the much needed breakfast in the morning).
Thank you from the bottom of my Heart for myself and Jimmy for taking such good care of us and putting the icing on our wedding cake!!!!

Alex and the team, you stopped at nothing to make sure Reid and I had the most incredible wedding day which was the best day of our lives. Nothing I can say could translate the gratitude we have for you, your team, your execution, and delivery from the months leading up to especially the day of. 5 stars isn't a limit that could capture all you have done. If anyone is looking for a coordinator that will guide you through the entire planning process and see through the day of with both the highest professionalism and finesse, I promise you will not go wrong with Alex and the team! I'm a bit of a control freak (being honest) but felt so comfortable having alex steer through the day and pulling off WAY better than I envisioned. We had some issues along the way but Alex and the team solved all the problems as they occurred as smoothly as possible. I cannot thank you all enough we had the best day ever in such a beutiful venue. The food was magnificent so thank you to the catering team for this and the serving of the food was exceptional. Matty the DJ entertained our guests all the way through and the rooms and breakfast for our guests were at a high standard and catered for all. Thank you to each and every staff member at hawkwell house you all really touched our lives and ensured we had a superb day keep the good work up! Kind regards Sarah and Reid
