Sad it all had to end!
Salcombe Harbour Hotel was the perfect venue choice for our wedding and the views from the Hotel are absolutely stunning. The staff are amazing and special thanks goes to Jessica, the resident wedding planner, who we could not have done it without - thanks to her, every plan we had made came off far better than imagined and her attention to detail is incredible. In fact, planning our wedding was the easy part, the hard bit was seeing it all come to an end. The food served throughout the day was incredible and our guests kept saying how delicious the food was. We will be forever grateful to Jessica and the team for hosting our wedding and making it so perfect.

Simply Stunning
'We had THE MOST perfect day at the salcombe harbour hotel for our wedding on 5th November 2016. We introduced all our friends and family to the beautiful hotel which we fell in love with when we visited a few years ago when it first opened. Being neighbours to the Christchurch harbour hotel which we thought was hard to beat, we thought we would try out the newly opened salcombe harbour hotel. Wow, What a special, wonderful place and everyone just loved it just as much as we did and will all be returning with their families. The food was simply wonderful, the staff were attentive and Jess the wedding co ordinator was brilliant, she even arranged the sun to shine for us ! Simply stunning and such fond memories. Can't wait to return year after year

Can we do it all again please
When we first walked into Salcombe Harbour Hotel and Spa to look around for a potential wedding venue we were absolutely blown away by the hotel! Having looked at several other popular venues the bar was already set very high! We walked in to meet Jess and she could not have been more welcoming! The fire was lit in the reception area and we felt totally at home! We knew before we walked around that this is where we were meant to get married! We signed up that day and left excited with a head full of plans!

Jess, our wedding coordinator at the hotel made everything so painless. Nothing was too much trouble! She helped us tailor our wedding so all of our ideas were made a reality! Every time I had question I knew I could get in touch with Jess and get the answer.

After a year of planning the day arrived! With the room decorated exactly how I wanted it, we were ready to go! All the staff at the hotel were AMAZING! We couldn't fault them. Anything we needed they were there in minutes! The staff all acted in a professional but incredibly friendly manner at all times and they ensured all guests were looked after and made sure the bridal party had fizz in hand! It was the best party ever!

My husband and I stayed for a few more days after the wedding and the staff at the hotel really took the time to get to know us. It felt like our little hotel family and I was so sad when the time came to check out and leave. Can I do it all again please?

What can i say!
After our first visit to the Salcombe Harbour Hotel, it was clear that we were going to have a very special experience right from the start. We met with the wedding coordinator, Jessica Spragg, who welcomed us into the warm, cosy and intimate surroundings of the hotel. Immediately, we were struck by the beautifully designed interior of the hotel as we walked through the light airy reception and into the restaurant and bar. Jess offered us a drink on the house as we sank deep into the couches beside a roaring fire, overlooking the stunning Salcombe Estuary. We felt incredibly welcomed and knew that if this was the way of things to come, we’d certainly be wanting to spend our special day here!
After an incredibly special ceremony at the church, guests returned by boat to the hotel and my beautiful new wife and I followed. Back at the hotel, Jess greeted us with a Pimms as we watched guests settling outside on the private terrace . We both felt so happy that the day had gone so well, and so the theme continued as we celebrated in the Marine Room.
At one point, Jess came up to us to check we were happy and to see if there was anything else that she could do; casually mentioning it had been three years we’d been planning this day. I couldn’t believe it had been so long and so much work had gone into our big day as I relaxed into another pint of beer, and got ready to do the first dance with my new wife.

Amazing team making dreams come true
What can we say about Salcombe Harbour Hotel as a wedding venue that hasn’t been said before? The location, the views, the food, the setting, the photo opportunities, all endless. But what makes a potential bride and groom choose Salcombe Harbour Hotel over any other location, its simply their team. At no other venue did we feel that passion, that belief in their product, the connection between all team members with the same goal, to deliver the best wedding experience possible to their bride and groom. From the first time we walked in unannounced to “ just take a quick look around” we were made to feel special and that everyone was working together to ensure we had exactly what we needed. Jess, Jason and their team have been amazing in the 16 months lead up to the big day. As an event organiser with 23 years’ experience and a now husband with ATDD (attention to detail disorder) any team would have their work cut out living up to our high standards and we can confirm that we made the right choice and the team went above and beyond to ensure our special day lived up to and exceeded all expectations. We cannot put into words how comforting and reassuring it felt to be able to hand over the most important day of our lives to the Salcombe Harbour team and have total faith that they would deliver everything like clockwork. My only regret is that this experience for us is now over and am very jealous of all the future bride and grooms that have the pleasure of working with this amazing team to make their dream day come true

Cant reccommend this venue enough!
From the moment we walked in to the Salcombe Harbour Hotel, we knew that it was the place we had to get married. We were instantly impressed with the beautiful venue, the breath taking view and all the staff went out of their way to make us feel at home. Jess was fantastic from start to finish and made our wedding planning experience really enjoyable. We could never ask anything that was too much for Jess and she helped us to personalise everything we wanted. We're not from the South-West, therefore we expected that planning our wedding may have been a challenge! However, we were pleased that Jess and the team helped us to plan everything from a distance and organised as much as they could on our visits to the hotel.
Our wedding day was everything we wished for and completely exceeded our expectations. We were overwhelmed by the generosity and professionalism of all of the team at the Salcombe Harbour. All our guests commented how staff went above and beyond to ensure that their needs were attended to. The food was absolutely delicious, the view provided the most spectacular backdrop for our photos and we wouldn't have changed a thing about our day.
We are already looking forward to going back and visiting the Salcombe Harbour Hotel for our first year anniversary and we could not recommend this venue enough to other couples looking to get married in South Devon.

Summer Wedding
I cannot speak highly enough of both Jess as our wedding coordinator and The Salcombe Harbour Hotel as our wedding venue. From the start of the process we were made to feel so comfortable and I always had complete confidence in Jess. She has such a genuine friendly and professional manner, there is no doubt she knows her job and how to make the process as smooth as it possibly can be. Through regular meetings and communication - I always felt I could contact Jess knowing she would be there to answer any questions I had and to offer as much flexibility as possible. The venue is spectacular, the location is second to none and the food was amazing - we had numerous comments from guests who were so impressed by the top quality food and professional service.

Without any doubt, I would highly recommend Jess and The Salcombe Harbour Hotel and thank Jess and the hotel staff for creating such wonderful memories which make me smile every day. I would do it all again in a heartbeat and not change a thing. Genuinely perfect!

Everything we could have hoped for
From the minute we stepped into the Salcombe Harbour Hotel I knew it was the venue for us. We were met with warmth and professionalism by all of the Salcombe Harbour Hotel employees. The breath-taking views, relaxed feel and modern yet classic décor was perfect for our special day. We had a fantastic session tasting all the food options and were able to feed back to the chef on any changes that we wanted. We also sampled all the wine and champagnes available. If we had any questions we were able to email or call Jess and got speedy responses and advice and recommendations when we weren’t sure. We also got tremendous support when we had to call an ambulance for our son on the morning of the wedding – don’t ask, it all worked out well in the end. The calmness of the staff and nothing being too much trouble really helped to settle any nerves that we had. I would recommend this sophisticated venue to anyone – we also had some great pictures at the nearby beach too – perfect.
