I saw this offer on the Groupon website, which is brilliant value for a nice hotel in a lovely area (right next to the wildlife park too !). If I was looking to get married in the next year, I would certainly consider this...

Package is for up to 60 guests, but more can be added for full day or just evening reception (see fine print below).

(Don't forget, potentially 5% / £120 cashback through Quidco too !!)

A successful wedding speech can be soft, dry, or pleasantly smothered with strawberry jam. Get the toast right with today’s Groupon: a wedding package for up to 60 guests, including wedding breakfast, drinks, and evening reception for £2400 instead of £6713 at Marwell Hotel.

Hugged by 35 acres of woodland and adjoining Marwell Wildlife Park, Marwell Hotel is easily found just 15 minutes from Southampton, one hour from London, and half an hour from the New Forest. African inspired decor and classically rustic interiors of wooden beams and furniture merge the woodland environment with a sleek modern venue vibe. Up to 60 guests will be invited for a three course wedding breakfast including wine with a choice of three menus compiled with the expertise of local producers. The evening reception features a buffet meal and, while special rates are available on rooms, the bride and groom can enjoy an inclusive night in the bridal suite.


Loved up couples can enjoy a worry free wedding with:

Civil ceremony room hire £650
Court yard hire drinks reception £350
Drinks reception £7 x 60 = £420
Room hire (Breakfast and evening reception) £850
Three course wedding breakfast £38 x £60 = £2280
Wine served with the wedding breakfast 2 glasses £4.95 x 120 = £594
Toast Drink £7 x 60 = £ 420
Evening Buffet £16 x 60 = £960
Bridal Suit £189


Menus:

Roasted vine tomato soup with basil cream
Corn-fed chicken breast, button mushrooms and pancetta lardons in a red wine sauce
Crème brulee with shortbread

Or

Leek, potato and watercress soup with chives and croutons
Roasted pork loin with apple and calvados sauce
Chocolate and peanut butter cheesecake and peanut brittle

Or

Carrot, parsnip and coriander soup
Organic salmon fillet with lemon beurre blanc
Paris brest (choux pastry with hazelnut and amaretto cream)

I stayed here a year a go and not up to much. At least they could have had giraffes walking past the window! :)
It hasnt been around that long but still looks shabby.

OMG the poor hotel, our business have done both groupon and KGB and we lost 55% to Groupon, the minimum they take is 40% so the hotel is doing this for about £1200...ouch
shinydemon#4
Wow - I knew Groupon took a percentage, but had no idea it was so high !

I agree that there have been some problems with some of the deals, but this is mainly due to the number sold and the provider unable to handle the number of bookings. However despite the large number of deals that I have purchased, there has only been one where I have had to wait to get a massage due to over 200 being sold - in the wedding package offer, I believe that the number sold will be relatively low, and unless you have a specific date in mind they should be able to accommodate the booking.

Groupon cant and doesnt guarantee quality
Just look at their facebook page its funny reading with ppl expressing their dissatisfaction

Would i trust groupon for a wedding?

Hell no!

They can barely be trusted for a meal or spa deal, let alone something as important as this!

lol - will tell my mates :-)

No way should you trust your "big day" to these clowns.

I'm let down for trivial things like garden furniture. Imagine the tears if it was your wedding day!

I'm amazed even one person has gone for this deal, surely planning a wedding requires you to actually visit the place at the very minimum to see if its ok.

If there's one thing guaranteed to put an end to your sex life it's wedding cake.

When I voted to like it, I meant I like your comment and NOT I like the end of my sex life !!!

You could actually get a better deal if you call the hotel directly, this way they don't lose the 40% groupon fee so they have extra funds to offer you more, you will probably have to ask though.
Hotel I did some work for did a similar thing.

This is a pretty dumb comment, when you buy via groupon you would still do your research on the product you are buying first, the same as you would with anything!
