Our daughter got married at this hotel, lovely marriage service with a nice garden to take the photos. After the service we had a great reception with excellent food, the management and staff were marvellous nothing was to much trouble and their attention to detail was great. The evening party was good with an excellent buffet. We stayed overnight and the accommodation was good, a lovely large and comfortable bed and a good sized room. In the morning we had an excellent breakfast.

The service from Lisa who helped plan our day was also outstanding & everything went as planned. All the staff were friendly and helpful . Will be a place myself and my husband will spend a lot of time visiting.

Everything about this hotel is perfect. We had the pleasure of getting married here 3 years ago and came back for our anniversary! This hotel is faultless! Cannot recommend it enough. The food is out of this world and the staff are second to none, so friendly and helpful. Looking forward to coming back.
Trip Advisor – July 2014
We celebrated our Vegas wedding back in the UK with family and friends at The Alveston House Hotel on 19th July. The whole celebration from start to finish was perfect. The venue, the food, the customer service – it was just how I imagined it would be and that was due to the staff at the hotel being so attentive to detail and making sure that we had the day that we wanted. Several guests have told me that it was the best ‘wedding’ they had been to. Outstanding customer service!
Trip Advisor – June 2014
We had our wedding day here on the 28th June, and what a wonderful day we and all our guests had. The hotel and all the staff were very attentative to our needs from the original meeting right up to the wedding day. The ceremony room is light and airy, the gardens are beautiful for your photos, the reception room was spacious with natural light, the food was first rate but above all else all the staff led by Lisa were excellent, they made sure everything was perfect from the time we arrived, and continued to look after us and our guests needs throughout the day, nothing was a problem to them.
The hotel contributed greatly to making our start to married life a very special one, we are so glad we used this hotel, where customer service is at its best, we would thoroughly recommend this hotel for a wedding or any special occasion.

Facebook Review – March 2014
We got married here in June last year after 20 years together. Our day was simply magical!! Wouldn’t have changed a thing. Staff were wonderful, patient and thoughtful, food was superb and the atmosphere was perfect. Our day flew by but will never be forgotten.
Sara & Trish – November 2013
Our Wedding Day was a unique and beautiful occasion thanks to every member of the team at Alveston House Hotel. From the moment we chose the venue and stepped through the doors of the hotel, we were made to feel very welcome and special and the relaxed and friendly atmosphere was exactly what we wanted for our celebration. The attention to detail by every single member of the staff was amazing and the seamless effort with which they transformed the wedding breakfast into the evening party around us all was truly professional.
Because we are not local to the area and we knew our guests were travelling quite a distance to share in our celebration we chose the exclusive package. It was so important to us that our friends and family should also feel relaxed during their stay and being the only guests in the hotel meant it felt a more intimate occasion. We have had numerous comments from our friends that this was the best wedding they had attended and the atmosphere of the hotel and the quality of the food and service was outstanding.
Julie and all her team were simply outstanding and organised everything we wanted including hair dressers on the day. The personal touches from the hotel, coupled with the sun shining for us and the champagne and canapes in the garden means our wedding day will be something we treasure for many years to come. We cannot thank the team at Alveston House enough.
We shall certainly be returning to celebrate our anniversary.
From Sara & Trish
Russell & Rosie Thickett – August 2013
Just wanted to put in words how much we appreciated our wedding weekend, it’s a great credit to your hotel that so many of our guests have said how much they enjoyed the whole weekend. From our point of view we can only be grateful that we found your hotel on the internet and decided to come and visit. As you know neither of us have any ties to the area or reason for traveling to Bristol it was only the lure of your all inclusive weekend package that peaked our interest, being able to have our guests around us and able to relax with the freedom of the whole hotel was something that we had wanted from the beginning but thought we would not be able to find. It must be said that as a couple we wanted the least amount of hassle possible and this is what you gave us, it seemed that everything had been taken care of and the only decisions we had to make were the easy ones, like the food and drink choices but again you had that covered with your range of options. The whole weekend was a great success from the arrival of our guests on the Friday and your attentive staff making sure that bags were taken to Rooms and people checked in, to the checkout on Sunday morning. The highlights of the weekend were the quality of the food, everything we ate was superb, thanks to the chef and his team, the relaxing atmosphere you have created within the hotel and everyone who works at the hotel it really does feel like they enjoy what they do ( I’m so glad that you had someone taking photographs as we have been able to use some of these to show people while we wait for our proper ones).
Russell and Rosie
P.s If one thing puts into perspective how we felt about our wedding it’s that while we were on our honeymoon in Sri Lanka and then the Maldives, our topic of conversation would drift back to how much we loved our wedding weekend and how special it was.
Jack and Ruth Crates on behalf of Becky & Mark Roberts – May 2013
On behalf of all family members I would like to take the opportunity to thank all staff and management at the Alveston House Hotel for what I can only describe as Becky’s father a perfect day.
From the start of the day to the call of last orders on the evening the professional standard of all staff was outstanding. Special thanks go to Lisa who was there to give guidance and appropriate advice at each stage of the ceremony, she absolutely made the day.
The comments that have been past on by guests of both the wedding / reception and the evening buffet / disco reflect all that has been stated above. Please feel free to use this letter as an endorsement of Alveston House Hotel to prospective customers who would wish to hold their wedding event at your hotel. I cannot recommend you highly enough.
Once again thank you all.
Trip Advisor – August 2012
We have just had our son and new daughter in law’s wedding at Alveston House and we only feel it fitting that we share our views with other Bride and Grooms to-be. If you want a VERY personal feel to your wedding this is the place. The staff are fabulous – Lisa, the wedding co-ordinator, is outstanding – she made the day go so smoothly. The staff there can’t do enough for you. The food was excellent, so if you are want a beautiful wedding, where the stress of the day is taken care of by someone else with confidence then this is the place for you. We would highly recommend this beautiful Hotel. I would like to thank ALL the staff involved from greeting us at the door to saying goodbye we thank you.
Trip Advisor – April 2011
My daughter was married at this hotel and we were looked after from the time we booked in the previous day until we booked out the day after the ceremony.
There was a dedicated wedding co-ordinator who ensured all went well and helped calm the groom and bride’s nerves. The rooms were very clean and a couple of single guests commented on the amount of space in their single rooms. The food was very good and received favourable comments from the groom who is a trained chef.
All in all a very welcoming place to stay, we received better service than in a 4 star hotel that we stayed at last year.
Adrian & Sarah Tarr – 15 October 2010
Alveston House Hotel has more than exceeded to our expectations. The food and quality of service we received were excellent, we would highly recommend this hotel for anyone’s wedding day.
