Best Wedding Venue Award

The Solent Hotel and Spa is delighted to announce it has won ‘Best Wedding Venue’ at the Hampshire Wedding Awards 2018.
The awards recognise those companies throughout Hampshire that have led from the front when it comes to categories such as customer service, product or service offering and generally going over and above as standard for weddings.
The hotel, located between Portsmouth and Southampton, has hosted many happy couples on their big day over the past 30 years and is constantly evolving its wedding packages to ensure it exceeds the expectations of every bride and groom.
The outstanding venue and impeccable service contributed to winning this prestigious award.  Couples holding a wedding at Solent Hotel and Spa will not only be sure of a perfect day with fine food, stylish setting and packages to suit all plans but also a day tailored to their exact requirements.  With two suites for weddings of up to 200 people or the more intimate dining terrace, whatever size celebration the day will be meticulously planned to create a dream day.
Bride Lianne, who married at Solent Hotel and Spa in March 2018 said: ‘I would honestly say that choosing The Solent Hotel and Spa is one of the best decisions we have ever made. The team there are some of the most professional yet friendly people I have ever met, and I would entrust any huge event to them in total confidence that it would be truly amazing. Even now I still remember walking into the Hambledon Suite and just being totally blown away by what I saw. It was immaculate, everything a bride dreams of and more. From the fairy light draping, to the cake, the tables, the flowers, the lighting….it was just perfect.”
In the past two years the ever-popular packages covering room hire and dressing, drinks and dining options have been enriched with the introduction of the Extra Sparkles Package.
The Extra Sparkles Package has a menu of optional extras for couples to enhance their day.  These include the very popular Glam Room for brides to get ready in with their bridesmaids while they enjoy prosecco, continental breakfast, bathrobes & slippers and a wedding day survival kit to help prepare for the big day.  At the event couples can choose a gin station, a sweet cart or donut wall or a Winter Wonderland with sparkling lights and feature trees to create a festive atmosphere.
The hotel also offers a fabulous Meet the Family package to extend the celebrations offering a private dining dinner the night before or a relaxing Sunday at the Spa for a post-wedding treat before heading off on honeymoon.
George French, General Manager of the Solent Hotel and Spa said: “We are thrilled to have won the Best Venue at the Hampshire Wedding Awards.  We all know how important a wedding day is and we pride ourselves on having a team that treats every couple’s day with the utmost importance and for whom nothing is too much trouble.
