Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT TIME CAN WE CHECK IN ON THE DAY OF EXCLUSIVE USE?

Your exclusivity of the hotel and grounds begins at 12h30, with check-in timeavailable from 14h00. Unfortunately we are unable to allow rooms to be used for changing etc prior to checking in.

WHAT TIME CAN THE CEREMONY BE HELD?

You would be welcome to have the registrars conduct your ceremony any time between 13h30 and 18h00.

CAN WE HAVE EVENING ENTERTAINMENT?

You are welcome to book evening entertainment, such as a DJ or live band, which would be set up in our Mirror Room. We request that the music draws to a finish at midnight and that our late bar closes at 13h00.

HOW MANY GUESTS CAN ATTEND THE EVENING RECEPTION?

Up to to 85 people can attend the evening reception– we would, however,be unable to accommodate all of these guests overnight.

CAN OUR GUESTS EXTEND THEIR STAY IF THEY WISH TO DO SO?

We can make a maximum of eight rooms (no more than 16 people, including children and infants) available to your guests who wish to extend their stay to the night before or after your exclusive use period.

CAN WE ASK GUESTS TO PAY FOR THEIR OWN ACCOMMODATION?

As the exclusive use rates cover all of our 30 rooms, you could consider asking guests to contribute towards the costs of their accommodation in order to make this a viable option. In our experience, we find that guests are happy to finance their own hotel bill, especially if it enables the couple to stage their dream wedding in the perfect setting. If you select this option, we can deduct this from the total cost. Payment will simply be requested from your guests on departure from the hotel, leaving you free to enjoy your day without having to worry about collecting money from friends and relatives.

HOW MUCH SHALL WE ASK OUR GUESTS TO PAY TOWARDS THEIR ACCOMMODATION?

We’d recommend applying a flat room rate for all those staying. This is up to you, of course, but we advise you to carefully consider your decision so that guests are not tempted to look for accommodation elsewhere.

WHAT DAYS OF THE WEEK CAN WE HAVE EXCLUSIVE USE?

Any day of the week, subject to availability.We take Saturday night bookings from November to March, dependent on availability; from April to October, a two-night minimum booking is required.

DO YOU ACCOMMODATE CHILDREN?

A total of 13 of our rooms can accommodate either additional children or infants depending on the room size, using sofa beds, z beds or travel cots. Our sofa beds and z beds are suitable for children up to the age of 12 years only. Please ask for further details.

HOW LONG WILL THE CEREMONY LAST?

The ceremony will be conducted by the local registrars and usually lasts no longer than 30 minutes. Please note that it is the duty of the couple to contact the local registrars.

DO YOU HAVE A SOUND SYSTEM THAT WE CAN USE FOR THE CEREMONY MUSIC?

You are welcome to provide a CD of your chosen music (please note – no MP3 files) or bring your own iPod which can be used in conjunction with the hotel’s sound system. Another popular option is to have a string quartet or harpist play during the ceremony. Music may then be continued during the drinks reception on the terrace or in the lounges.

CAN WE HAVE A TWO-DAY EXCLUSIVE USE WEDDING?

If you are interested in booking the hotel for a two-day exclusive wedding, please do not hesitate to contact our wedding coordinator for more informationand we will do our best to meet your request.
