"Wonderful this place is"
May 2015 - Helen & Andrew

"We have never written an article on here but felt so strongly about how wonderful this place is that we had to share our experience with others – both of us would happily do this all over again.
After viewing the Royal Maritime Club website, we booked an appointment to visit and we can honestly say that we found that it was much better in real life and we immediately fell in love with this place - so much so that we married here on 16th May 2015.
Remember if you get married here it’s not just a day for the bride and groom but also for their families and guests as this is a wonderful place for all concerned.
Many areas of the hotel have recently undergone refurbishment including the ‘Trafalgar’ Ball Room, and many of the bedrooms have been upgraded to a superior standard. The Victory bar offers a great place for guests to meet, socialise and relax; alternatively there is a billiards room which has 4 full size snooker tables or a beautiful library to entertain guests whilst they wait.
The ceremony took place on the balcony of the Ballroom, followed by a 3 course wedding breakfast served in the main ballroom itself. Both areas were elegantly decorated and looked stunning, our guests were really spellbound by their experience at our wedding and the food presented was to a very high standard and represented exceptionally good value for money.
Alas, not to forget all the staff there, accommodating, amazing, professional, courteous, experts....need we say more. They also made our day ever so special and many of them have become friends with us over the last few months.
Thank you ALL for making ‘Our’ day so special and memorable. "
