Dawn & Mike's Wedding 23/05/2015
The Cotswold Club were incredibly attentive to our needs throughout the wedding planning process and helped create the perfect look, ambiance and worked brilliantly with all our other suppliers to the lead up to the wedding. The venue is breath taking with beautiful green grounds ( perfect for photos) but the winter marquee surpassed out expectations providing a beautiful serene day look for our Hindu wedding and an elegant and sophisticated look for our evening reception.

Though it was the Cotswold Club’s first Hindu wedding, Sophie, the events coordinator was superb. She took care of every detail and went out of her away to ensure the day ran to schedule, chipping in with her team to help us every step of the way. The staff were also incredibly friendly and we could feel the genuine excitement as they greeted and served our guests.

We are glad we chose the Cotswolds Club – with the beautiful location, extremely professional, thorough and helpful events team and charming winter marquee and decor you can’t go wrong! We are grateful to the Cotswold club for one of the best days if our life. Pranita & John’s Wedding 08/02/2015
Stu & I would like to send a huge thank you to you and all the staff at Cotswolds Club. We had an absolutely fantastic day, the food was great and the venue looked amazing! I would like to send a special thanks to the kind member of staff who gave some of our guests a lift into town after the taxi’s had stopped.

Thank you so much for your hard work Sophie, it was a really lovely, wonderful day. Ellie & Stuart’s Wedding 07/03/2015
We had an absolutely wonderful wedding day and wanted to hugely thank you and all the team that worked together to make it what is was and bring it together the way you did.

The food was beautiful and everyone has said how much they enjoyed it all and in particular the chocolate fondant!! The venue is stunning and we’re sure it will go from strength to strength in holding weddings and events :)

Thank you once again for all your input and guidance, including helping the ushers with their button holes!! We wish you all the very best for the future. Tracy & Sam’s Wedding 14/02/2015
We had our reception here. It was fantastic. The way they dressed the venue was gorgeous and everything we asked for was done perfectly. The staff were so attentive throughout the whole day and all of our guests commented on the way they worked their socks off.

We went for the hog roast with barbecue option and it was amazing. When they brought that roast out everyone was blown away.
The setting outside is perfect for photographs and there is loads of space for parking. If you want your reception to go without a hitch, and throw a great party for your guests you can book the Cotswolds Club safe in the knowledge that Sophie and her team will take control and just let you get on with enjoying your day. I cannot thank them highly enough. Adrian & Gabriella Wedding 04/10/2014
We all felt that the lunch was fantastic, with the attention to detail in the table, food and drink exceptional, and we had a wonderful time.

You can be assured that we will not hesitate to recommend the place to friends, and look forward to returning our selfs soon both as a group, and as individuals. Kingscourt Christmas lunch 17/12/2014

The food was excellent-Well done Nick, The service first class and the 75 people all left feeling they had had a great night.There was a wonderful atmosphere ( The seniors always know how to enjoy themselves ) and it was a lovely end to my year as senior captain.

Hi Sophie,

On behalf of me and Sally. Thank you so much for the most fantastic and wonderful wedding reception and hotel weekend you delivered for us both. It was and will be something we will cherish for many many years to come.

There are no words to describe how happy we are and how proud we are to have chosen you guys as a venue and you as our wedding co-ordinator.

All your staff were fantastic (from reception, chef, waitresses and bar staff and DJ).

You work so so hard and it made our day so so perfect. You have helped wok around our laid back attitude and have put all the details in to make it a very perfect day. Your advice was brilliant.

We will be in touch on our return from Antigua (we are back Thursday 21st June) to properly thank you. It has been incredible.

Sally wants to come back to try the sauna and hot tub so we must discuss how we can come and pay to do that.

Thanks again,

Good morning Sophie :)

Sunday was the most perfect day! Everything went according to plan thank you to you and your amazing staff. They were all fantastic and so helpful. And deserve so much praise for helping us have the best day of our lives! Obviously a huge part in that was down to you! So we are very grateful for that! Please pass this email on to Wiji so he can see how impressed we were by all his staff :) everyone from the receptionist to the barmen/waiters/waitresses to the chefs who supplied us with the most beautiful food! To Adrianne who was simply amazing and was there every step of the way sorting things out with no worries whatsoever. The mother in law was so impressed she left a nice tip with one of the staff to split between the staff working Sunday so could you please make sure that gets to everyone. Thank you.

With regards to the pictures I'm sure that will be fine. When we get them I will ask and then get back to you but can't see there being a problem.

Again, thank you for everything you done in the past 2 years helping us through the planning. You've been a star. It was everything we imagined and more. The perfect venue for us and our guests were more than impressed. We will be sure to leave a great review on trip-advisor for you.

Love and best wishes,

Thanks again,

Hayley Gough James & Hayley Gough - 27th August 2016
Thank you so much to everyone at the Cotswold hotel and spa for making our wedding so special. The venue looked stunning and all of the guests commented on how great the food was. Everyone worked so hard to give us the perfect day. 2 people that stood out for me- (I am so sorry I didn't catch your name) the lovely room attendant, who came to my rescue with scissors and a basket filled with lovely toiletries, you were so kind and went out of your way to be lovely to me, I won't forget you! And secondly our amazing coordinator Adrianne- you are an absolute credit to the team, such a genuine lovely lady, it was such a pleasure to meet you. Thank you for all of your help, we had the most amazing day and I will treasure it forever.
Now for the renewal ceremony. Haha. Lots of love jade and Leon Newman xxx The Wedding of Jade Farrar and Leon Newman Saturday 8th October
We had such a lovely day and will send photos across when we're back from honeymoon.

We would like to thank you for all of your help and hard work ... Having two bridezillas instead of one can't have been easy!

Also, Kathryn was absolutely marvellous throughout the whole day and we would like to say a massive thank you.

Best wishes, Cathy Heath & Caroline Tustain - Saturday 22nd October 2016
I had the pleasure of getting married here on Saturday 5th November and I cannot recommend this venue enough! The staff are fantastic the venue is beautiful rooms are lovely and very clean.
The food is great value and tastes amazing! I had a spa day the day before and had a hot stone massage with afternoon tea which was just what I needed to unwind before my big day and my now husband played golf the place just ticks all boxs!
They made getting married as stress free as any bride and groom could wish for. I wish we could do it all again we will certainly be back on our anniversary!

Crown Riding School Christmas Party - 2nd December 2016

Sophie,

Good afternoon to you.

I trust you are well!

I just wanted to touch base with you following our wedding day last Saturday.

WOW! We seriously had an incredible day. Its mad to think that a year ago almost we sat down with you booked the venue and then endured 12 months of planning, stress and excitement for our big day. Then, all of a sudden, it falls upon us and absolutely fly’s by! It is very scary how quickly the day goes but the feedback we have had in relation to the venue has been superb! It looked beautiful and having you personally on hand put our minds at rest.

We just wanted to drop a little line really to applaud you for your efforts. We have seen the transformation from when the hotel was barely off the ground to it being up and running and enjoying our wedding day! In what was a little uncertain at times with the changeover to Adrianne, I think it’s fair to say Vikki and myself were incredibly pleased to have you back and overseeing our day. We truly could not of asked for a better day and we thank you for that.

As I said to you on the evening my only slight criticism would be a couple of the bar staff upstairs (not all of them) could perhaps learn how to smile form time to time or maybe perhaps just take a leaf from your book!

However, our day was incredibly special and that’s credit to your hardworking self I certainly did not expect you to be battling away setting up the ceremony on your own, to then going all the way through until the evening and then serving breakfast in the morning! You are an asset to the business in my eyes and coming from a sales/service background its nice from time to time to be recognised for that!

Glucka I believe is your manager that I have copied in for him to read my comments.

I guess as sad as it is that all passed so quickly, our dealings with you guys are done and so whilst I thank you once more for your efforts, I wish you all the very best for your future.

The overall feedback on the venue was that all had a fantastic time, with stunning food and a pretty venue!

Thank you again.

Best Regards,

Mr & Mrs Wilkins! (Vikki & Adam)

Hi Sophie,

Just a quick note to say thank you for everything you did for Nathan and I on Thursday. Everything was perfect and there is nothing we would have changed. I'll leave a review on your Facebook and trip advisor shortly but nathan and I could not be happier with the service you and your team provided for us.

I'll send you photos as soon as we have them.

Best wishes

Hi Sophie - please pass on our thanks to you and all the team at Cotswold Spa Hotel for giving us a great evening last night - the room looked fantastic and the food was brilliant, to get so many meals coming out hot and getting all the allergies sorted is a mammoth task so please particularly thank the chef, the whole thing worked a treat!

Carley came over to get the candelabra to clean, but Hayley said they had been done and were all clean (Carley did get Hayley to show her to check as we obviously said we would do it). If there's any problem then send me a message and we will come over and sort it.

Many thanks again to everyone. Look forward to working with you again! Hazel & Carley

Dear Sophie.
Thank you for an amazing day yesterday. I could not have asked for more. The day went really well, everything was just perfect and as how you said that it would be.
Listening to my family and friends, they enjoyed the day and one said that it was the best wedding that they had been to.
I would also like to thank you for making it at ease and moving things on and keeping to time. It is always the little things that you do that makes the experience more special. The service from you and your team was amazing, there were no complaints. The food was excellent.

The hotel staff were helpful and friendly. The restaurant staff on Friday evening and Saturday morning were brilliant and attentive.
I hope that our party behaved themselves as they should have.
Sorry that if there were too many last minute changes or that there were any bumps that caused annoyance. If there was, it wasn't shown.

Thank you again for a great day (all down to you), a great stay at the hotel and all our guests giving me great feedback about the event.
So thank you again for an amazing day.
Lots of love

Hi Sophie,

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for a memorable weekend. From the staff looking after us from when we arrived on friday and throughout the day on saturday. Please give my compliments to them all. The food was absolutely amazing too, so extra compliments to the chef. We understood the delay in getting into our rooms on Friday due to the Cheltenham races but we were more than looked after when we arrived - so thank you very much.

Everyone commented about the beautiful venue.

Has everything else been settled your end?

Many thanks again for such a wonderful day.
