From start to finish, the team at Great John Street Hotel, in particular Lauren and Martina were superb. We had the most perfect wedding imaginable. We had the top floor including the heated outside veranda which was perfect even taking into account the November weather. The hotel itself is stunning and has a quirky but classy feel which really helps set it apart from the average wedding venue. My wife and I would recommend Great John Street whole heartedly, it was simply perfect !

We had our wedding here on 2nd December 2017 and could not fault the hotel or the staff in any way. We booked Great John Street Hotel in February 2016 and we were very looked after the whole time. Lauren and Jordan in particular were fantastic. Our guests commented throughout the day and evening about how great everything was, the food and the hotel staff especially. They really made our special day perfect. The rooms were stunning and I love their duplex design. If you are thinking about having your wedding here then please do, everything was amazing and we are so sad it is all over. I have also been to the hotel for drinks and afternoon tea, every time I visit I have an amazing experience.

We had the most amazing day and couldn't have asked for anything more. We had high expectations and all of them were surpassed from start to finish. Please pass on our thanks to all the staff at Great John Street Hotel, especially the chefs as the food was absolutely incredible and all our guests commented on how amazing it was. A special thanks to Tom who couldn't do enough for us, to Isabelle who made sure everything ran so smoothly (her attention to detail was perfect and her support for me and Paul throughout the day meant a lot) and also to Carol who continued the exceptional service to the end. Lastly, on a personal note - you have been absolutely amazing. One of the main reasons why we chose Great John Street Hotel was because of you. From our first meeting we had absolute confidence in you and that you would deliver everything we had wished for on our special day and you really did. We cannot thank you enough and we'll definitely be coming back. Once again, many thanks,

Mr & Mrs Hulley
