Our wedding testimonials

Couples love getting married at our hotel! Read what they have to say about our wedding venue, packages and amazing team.

“Our day went absolutely perfectly”- Alice & Mark 

Thank you so much for everything you did, you have been amazing throughout the whole planning process. You have been so quick to reply to every email, question and have made our planning very easy.
Our day went absolutely perfectly me and Mark honestly couldn’t fault a thing. Everything ran so smoothly and went beyond what we had expected or had in our minds. The team were brilliant on the day and we honestly had the best day. We have had so many comments on how lovely the day was and compliments on the food too.
Breakfast the following morning was lovely also and the room for breakfast again looked lovely with your staff using our decorations and flowers for the breakfast also.

“The whole team involved were stars!” – Jenny & Rob

“I just wanted to you to know how much we appreciated and loved our wedding day at Holiday Inn Fareham on 09/08/19.

Right from our very first meeting, you showed nothing but professionalism, great communication, mostly by email but a phone call was never unanswered. The whole planning of our day was actually stress-free – a great idea of yours to offer these package deals.

If I could marry the same man again, I would definitely be having a wedding with you. We went for the larger package as we found that better value for us, and absolutely everything we could need for our perfect wedding. The whole team involved were stars!

Our Toast Master Trevor was amazing and organised our 70 guests in a great fun professional way – they all loved him. The catering staff were brilliant, our menu was outstanding, and every person said how delicious each course was… Lots of our guests commented that it was one of the funniest and memorable weddings they had been to, which made Rob and I so happy.

We believe that our wedding package bought from you, with everyone’s expertise, is absolutely one of the best decisions we have made. I would 100% recommend a deal like this for a stress-free enjoyable day.”

“It was absolutely perfect!” – anonymous 

“I just wanted to email you on behalf of myself and Darren to say a massive thank you! You have been absolutely amazing from all the emails, meetings to your care and special attention on our special day. It was absolutely perfect! All the staff were super friendly and helpful and Gee was fantastic too. We couldn’t have wished for a more perfect day and reception! Thank you so much.”

“Holiday Inn made our wedding day one of the best days of my life” – Richard and Chloe

“The Holiday Inn made our wedding day one of the best days of my life. Nothing was too much trouble and they ran the whole day smoothly and calmly. At no point did I once have any questions about what was happening or have any apprehension about anything.

It was the calmness and efficiency of the staff that made the day so relaxed, taking all the pressure off my wife and I. I cannot recommend them highly enough.”

“Helped us feel relaxed” – Tash and Adam 

“We had our wedding at Holiday Inn Fareham Solent in September. All the staff were very helpful with all the planning and on our wedding day too. It helped us feel relaxed about just having to worry about the day itself without having to worry about the day running smoothly or any of the finer details.

The food was lovely and plentiful, all our guests still keep talking about how lovely the food was. We would highly recommend the Holiday Inn for anyone looking for a wedding venue.”

“Perfect venue” – Natalie and Aaron

“The Holiday Inn was the perfect venue for our wedding celebration. We can’t fault anything, the food, service, DJ and function room were all excellent!

Both us and our guests had a wonderful time and we have such happy memories to look back on. We would highly recommend The Holiday Inn to other couples looking for a fantastic venue for their wedding!”

“High standard” – Adrianne

“Me and my husband Ben got married on 27th July 2017 and we had a lovely day. The Holiday Inn staff were amazing very helpful and keen to make sure we had everything as we wanted. Everything was done to a high standard and the food was brilliant – couldn’t ask for more. Highly recommended.”

“Wedding of our dreams” – Shannon & Jason

“Me and my husband Jason got married at your venue in July 2017 had an amazing day. It was the wedding of our dreams and the staff made it such a lovely experience.

“Best day of our lives” – Amanda

“Niki & I got married on August 17 at Holiday Inn Fareham – Solent. It was the best day of our lives! The weather was beautiful so the courtyard of the Abbey Suite was perfect. The food was brilliant – all cooked very well and the service was fantastic. The Wedding Co-ordinator on the day did a brilliant job! Would do it all again in a heartbeat.”

“Stress-free wedding day” – Hayley and Daniel

“My husband and I got married at Holiday Inn Fareham – Solent in September 2017 and the day was perfect. From start to finish the customer service we received was exceptional, emails were responded to within hours and we had constant contact with our Wedding Co-ordinator.

The staff on the day were amazing with the catering manager actually coming in and working on his week off to make sure that our day ran smoothly. The whole planning process was stress-free and we were guided it through it by the Wedding Co-ordinator.

The food was amazing and all of our guests had a fantastic stay at the hotel. We could not fault a single thing about the hotel and would recommend it to any couple looking for a stress-free wedding day.”

“Nothing was too much trouble” – Maria

“The day itself was fantastic – from the start of the day, the staff kept us informed on all the arrangements of decorating the room. They guided our hairdressers and makeup artists to our room and nothing was too much trouble. The timing of everything was organised by the staff and they let us knew when things were due to start and guided us to the ceremony room.

The room looked beautiful and all our guests looked so happy and relaxed. The service was amazing, again the staff guided us and told us when to do things. I would recommend The Holiday Inn for future brides and grooms. I promise you won’t be disappointed and it will leave you with absolutely perfect memories.”

“Everything was honestly perfect” – Jodie Andrews

“Me and my husband Scott got married at Holiday Inn Fareham – Solent in October 2017 and it was all so BEAUTIFUL! Everything was honestly perfect. We were kept informed with everything on the lead up to the wedding, and throughout our special day.

Nothing was ever too much for the team, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for a venue. They have packages suited to different budgets which I think is fab! Thank you again to all the team that helped make our special day.”

“It was such a special day” – Mr & Mrs Giles

“It was such a special day and all the staff couldn’t have done more for us if they tried. They were so amazing and nothing was too much bother. Everything went exactly how I imagined it well even better actually. Even the reception staff were very good.

The food throughout the day was lovely, there was plenty to go round and lots even left. The food came out quickly and everyone loved their roasts. All my family who stayed said their rooms were nice and they all slept well. They had everything needed in them.

I will recommend to anyone I know to come and stay, hold functions at the Holiday Inn as everyone who came loved it.”

“Our Wedding Co-ordinator was wonderful” – Mr & Mrs Vidak

“Me and my husband got married in May 2016. As a bride planning your dream wedding down to the finer small details, our Wedding Co-ordinator Stacey was wonderful in fulfilling all of our questions and needs. Nothing was too big or small for making our day as special as we wanted it to be.

All of the staff were friendly and always smiled. On the big day Alex the functions manager was amazing – he kept the day going on time from the ceremony to the last dance.

The whole hotel was clean and tidy, the wedding breakfast was very lovely and we were able to adapt the pudding to our liking. Me and my husband had our photos taken around the hotel but also we went to Titchfield Abbey for some photos as well. This venue is an ideal location for a function, one we have told others about for the future. ”

“Our day was fantastic” – Mr & Mrs Castleton

“We had our wedding last April 2017 and our day was fantastic. All the staff went out of their way to make it very special for us. I would highly recommend having a wedding at Holiday Inn Fareham – Solent they catered for our every need – 10/10.”
