We just wanted to say thank you so much for last weekend, we had an absolutely amazing day.
So many people have commented on how good the venue and everything included was.

Thank you for all your help in organising the whole day for us and ensuring it all went to plan.

And also a big thank you to the lady (who’s name we can’t remember sorry) who ran the day, she was lovely and couldn’t have made us feel more at ease.

Thanks again,

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!

Charlotte & Callum Reynolds

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,

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,

Chris and Sally X

Chris & Sally

Hi Frankie and Team,

We hope you are well.

We have just arrived back from our honeymoon and we are still in shock at how well our wedding day went!

We just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the team for everything that was done for our wedding day. It really was perfect, and we both had the best day. Our guests were so impressed with everything too! Even though timings were a bit off with our arrival, everything still managed to run smoothly, and we appreciate the work which was put in to make this happen.

We also wanted to say a special thank you to the manager who went on the golf buggies with us and helped out the morning after the wedding, and an extra special thank you to the lovely South African lady at reception (sorry we can’t remember names!) who was a MASSIVE help throughout the whole wedding weekend, especially with my last minute nail booking disaster and being so great in the morning before I left for church.

Excellent venue, team and wedding day!

Many thanks,
Mandi and Francesco

Mandi & Francesco

Hello Sophie just wanted to send a message to thank you all for such amazing day I wouldn’t of change anything it was just perfect. Thanks for all your time over the last 2 years. And thanks to Lauran I think that’s her name for all the help throughout the day and for the photos:) which was a nightmare in the wind nut added to pics haha. Same it’s over now but a truly fab day that we will remember for ever. Thanks to everyone involved.

Beth & Tom Knight

we had the best day of our lives here on our wedding the food was delicious staff was so friendly everything was A++++++++++++++++++++

Amber & Jeremy

We just got back from our honeymoon so wanted to say thank you so much for all your help in the run up to the big day and on the actual day. The venue looked amazing and everyone was so nice and helpful – everything went off without a hitch. I know we had a few changes up until the last minute so thank you for all your help in making it an amazing day for Antoine and I.

Sadya & Antoine

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

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

Hi Sophie,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all of your help in the planning and smooth running of our wedding day.

We absolutely loved the Venue from our fist visit and were so excited when the Hotel and Spa were added. It made it the perfect choice for us and our guests, Who also loved it and commented on what a beautiful venue it is.
The food was amazing, Just what we wanted it to be and again was very popular with our guests. Amilia was very well catered for to.

I would also like to say a big thank you to the staff who worked very hard and were always on hand when needed with a smile.

We had the best day!

Thank you again, I will definitely be recommending you as a venue and we hope to come and stay at the Hotel again in the future.

Deborah & Robert

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

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


Rhiannon & Nathan

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.

Hi Sophie,

Hope you’re keeping well. Matt and I would like to leave a review for your website, following our amazing wedding back in the summer! Please could you upload the following message? …

‘We got married at the Cotswolds Hotel and Spa earlier this year and would highly recommend the venue to anyone looking for a beautiful setting with lovely food, great staff and a relaxing yet fun atmosphere.

Sophie, Olivia & Frankie were very helpful from when we first met, through to when we left the venue the day after the wedding. They really helped with the planning, taking all of our details and requests into account.

On the morning of the wedding our parents delivered the flower arrangements and decorations to Olivia, and when we arrived every table was set up beautifully. The day went perfectly, and the staff were brilliant, discretely checking things were just as we wanted, but without interrupting in any way.

The venue works really well, particularly with a range of guest ages, with guests making use of the patio area overlooking the golf course, the bar area with the music, as well as the main wedding breakfast room/marquee, which was also used for the evening buffet. Many of the guests stayed overnight, and having breakfast together the next morning was the perfect end to our wedding in the Cotswolds.

Thank you so much to all of the staff for making our day so special.

Emma and Matt

Hi Sophie and your team,

Thank you for your help and kindness.

Kind regards

Thank you so much to you and your team on Saturday they were all excellent. The day ran so smoothly from start to finish and the food was perfect. No one moaned about anything and it was all I could of ever dreamed of. I shall forward you photos in a few weeks.

Rebecca & Glynn

We had our wedding here in May and the whole day was absolutely amazing! It was quite a big wedding but the attention to detail and service was still 5*. The venue looked breath taking, the food was brilliant and the Sophie ensured the whole day went smoothly! All the guests have commented on what a lovely venue it is and how convenient the hotel is for small families and those travelling from far. I really would recommend this to anyone for a wedding venue :) thank you again Sophie and the team for making this the most amazing day!! Xx

Holly & Brad

Andy and I just really want to express our thanks for the day, firstly it was an absolute pleasure dealing with yourself and although there were a few changes with event organisers, it’s seemed in the end we had the best!

This was the first and only place we actually visited to hold the wedding and we knew instantly that this was the place for us.

We really appreciate all of your help during the lead up to it and especially on the day, I hope we were not to demanding!!

We can honestly say the day was absolutely amazing and we could not have wished for anything more perfect.

The transformation of the room was beautiful, and the feedback from all the guests were the same, it filled us with such joy to know the guests were as pleased as we were.

The food in the day was absolutely outstanding, not only was it by far the best food I’ve had at a wedding but it was truly restaurant quality and to do it for such a number and have the consistency was perfect, again the feedback is not just from us but each and everyone one of the guests….

The day ran so smooth from start to finish and made the day even more special.

The evening topped is off perfectly, all the staff were great, the evening food, the entertainment, we literally couldn’t fault any of it.

Naturally this is a day we will never forget and you and the team made sure it was for all the right reasons.

We look forward to seeing you in the future, hopefully someone we know gets married there and then we have the perfect excuse and we can bring little Amelia with us.

Once again, our sincerest thanks for such an amazing day.

Sophie and Andy

Sophie and Andy

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

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,

Tom & Sarah x

Sarah & Tom

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
