“My new husband and I got married at Prested Hall 2nd December and words cannot describe just how wonderful this venue is. Our day was flawless and this was entirely down to the fantastic staff and most especially our excellent wedding planner Kathryn.

The whole planning process was completely free of stress thanks to the guidance and hard work of Kathryn. We really cannot praise her high enough. The venue has an intimate / warm vibe to it and we felt instantly relaxed whenever we visited. This was enhanced by the fact every single staff member encountered was extremely helpful and friendly, nothing ever too much trouble.

Prested Hall was exclusively ours for 24 hours as part of the wedding package and how this place only has 3 stars beggars belief. Our guests were universally delighted with their rooms which were all immaculate and combined character with modern convenience.

My Mum has mobility problems and stayed in the ground floor bedroom which is set out so that it is accessible to all. She could not stop raving about how wonderful the room was, especially the bathroom which was huge with a walk in shower.

There is a choice of 2 bridal suites, the “Dingle” which is a little cottage away from the main building or room 1 within the main hotel. We picked the latter because it was beautifully characterful with wooden beams, a huge bed and bath with stunning views of the lake. The food served was plentiful and sumptuous, we had many compliments from guests commenting that it was the best food they’d eaten at any wedding. High praise indeed!

Staff as ever were attentive throughout the meal and drinks were flowing. The venue itself is set amongst picturesque Essex countryside which as nature enthusiasts we really loved. However it also benefits from excellent transport links and is easily accessible by road and public transportation. We are already planning a return trip to this lovely hotel next year and apparently several of our friends want to join us too as they were highly impressed with the place.

Thank you so much to all at Prested Hall you really are wonderful!”
