Gill & Gerry Barker – April 2014
To you all at Alveston House for making our Wedding Day run so smoothly.
You all have been so kind and helpful to make it a wonderful day.

It was a great day!!
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.

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.
Janet and Matthew Webb – 16 October 2010
Our wedding day was perfect. We wouldn’t have changed a thing. We knew from the moment we walked into the Alveston House Hotel that it was the right venue for our wedding reception, and we made exactly the right choice.
From the moment we began to plan the day the hotel staff were helpful and courteous, and nothing was too much trouble. This exceptionally high level of service continued throughout the wedding weekend.
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.

Mr & Mrs Hammond – Silver Wedding Anniversary – 2 January 2009
Your staff could not have been more courteous, helpful and friendly… Particular thanks is due for the way in which you accommodated our disabled guest, both in terms of the location of his room and the extra chair in his bathroom, which, to his delight, was already in place when he arrived… The seating in the dining room was just about perfect – people were neither too far apart nor too close together… Everyone without exception thought the meal excellent, with the pudding especially drawing rave reviews all round. Everyone also commented on the excellent service throughout the meal. The disco was just right, perfectly pitched to the age group of those present… All in all you and your staff could not have done more to facilitate the enjoyment of our special occasion… We shall not hesitate to recommend your hotel to friends and acquaintances for future special occasions.
