Country house hotel Down Hall has reason to be celebrating after its recent extensive £6.5m refurbishment meant the property scoop the title of Wedding Venue of the Year at the annual Essex Wedding Awards.
The hotel was commended for the care and attention given to couples prior, during and post the big day, as well as additional touches, such as personalised toastmasters and complementary spa access for the day after the wedding.
The hotel underwent an epic refurbishment earlier this year, which saw its interiors and grounds renovated to the cost of £6.5m.
The 98 bedrooms were all given a refresh and a new spa was created, the Eden Spa. The hotel’s wedding offering consists of a variety of banqueting rooms, 26 multipurpose rooms with space for 200 guests.
The Essex Wedding Awards, now in their fifth year, celebrate the best of the country’s wedding professionals, services and venues. Each one is judged independently by engaged couples, gift list managers and a specially-selected panel of industry experts.
