We got married at Craigsanquhar House Hotel on 28 October 2017. I cannot recommend this venue highly enough. Our wedding was perfect mainly thanks to all the staff at the venue. I would particularly like to thank Fiona and Katy for everything they did to make our day perfect. Nothing was ever too much to ask or too difficult to arrange. From our first meeting with Fiona her organisational skills shone through which instantly put us at ease.

The venue is stunning and grand but with a homely feel. The surroundings are ideallic allowing for the most amazing photos. We were able to have our ceremony outside and this was no problem at all to arrange.

The food is second to none. We can’t wait to go back for another meal just the two of us. We were delighted with the food as were our guests. It is excellent food with generous portions. The prices at the bar are also very reasonable with a good selection of drinks.

I stayed in a villa the night before with my bridal party and it was amazing, so comfortable and relaxing. The night of the wedding we stayed in the house and the rooms are gorgeous, also one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in!

I honestly can’t recommend this venue highly enough, it was perfect from start to finish!! They deserve so much more than 5 stars!!!

Thanks to all the staff at Craigsanquhar for making our wedding day the most amazing day it could be.

Myself and my now husband had our wedding ceremony and reception at Craigsanquhar on 24th June 2017 and we could not have wished for a better day!

We had our ceremony outdoors on a lovely sunny day and the setting was a fantastic backdrop and the grounds look gorgeous in our photos. Every member of staff was extremely kind and helpful and could not have done more for us on our day. The food at our wedding breakfast and buffet was delicious and we enjoyed being able to have a pre-wedding menu tasting night.

Fiona & Katy, Wedding and Events Coordinator, were especially helpful and supportive and provided us with guidance whenever needed. We cannot thank them enough for this! The coach house was stunning and we enjoyed an outdoor drinks reception before our meal.

We cannot recommend the venue enough and thank all the staff for helping to make our day perfect! We look forward to visiting again soon!

I cannot say enough good things about craigsanquar. Nearly 2 years of planning and every step of the way Fiona and Katy have been amazing. On the day the staff was amazing and everything went like a dream. All I can say is thank you.

Myself and my now husband married at Craigsanquhar on 22nd July 2017 and could not have asked for a better venue. After finding the hotel just last July and getting lucky enough to get the last available Saturday for Summer 2017 we looked forward to the day for the last 12 months. We could not recommend the venue highly enough. Despite being extremely unlucky with the Scottish weather and spending the day dodging the rain – we had the best day of our lives and the staff of Craigsanquhar made it very easy to forget about the rain! Every member of staff was helpful and could not have done more for us – and the food on the day was delicious and commented on by many of our guests as some of the best they have had at a Wedding! Fiona & Katy especially have been on hand for the last 12 months helping and supporting us every step of the way and I cannot thank them enough for this. They kept the whole bridal party calm on the lead up and on the day and nothing was too much bother. The coach house was stunning and everything was dealt with promptly and professionally. We cannot recommend the venue enough and thank all the staff, but especially Fiona & Katy, for all their help in making our day the perfect day that it was! We can’t wait to visit again soon and wish we could do it all again!

My husband and I could not have been happier with Craigsanquhar as a Wedding Venue!! The wedding party, friends and family stayed the night before and the venue were extremely accommodating for us to have our wedding rehearsal on the front lawn the day before. The rooms in the Hotel were amazing and were available hours before check-in, lots of character and each different. Exactly what you would expect for a country hotel. We also booked the 4 Villa’s which were spectacular – all our friends and family enjoyed their stay! A special thanks to Fiona and Katy who were extremely supportive and helpful. Carlos in the restaurant who served our guests at breakfast! The food and drink you could not fault along with the waiting staff at the wedding breakfast. Our close friends and family are still raving about how amazing the day went and we will definitely be back!! THANK YOU AGAIN.

My husband and I were married at the hotel on the 29th of July 2017, we had the most amazing day and more than we could have have wished for. The staff are amazing and go above and beyond for you. Service is second to none. Food was amazing. We highly recommend the hotel for your wedding because Fiona and Katy are diamonds and will make sure your day is really special.

“Perfect wedding day – June 2016″

We had our wedding year in June this year, and cannot recommend Craigsanquhar highly enough.
The staff from initial visit, through planning, and the day itself were absolutely fantastic. So helpful and nothing was ever a chore. Their advice was accurate and simple, and they took the stress out for the entire planning of the wedding.
The day itself was handled immaculately without any hiccups or issues at all. Fiona, Joanne and the team were all great with the guests. The food was excellent, and the drinks reasonably priced.
Our guests haven’t stopped complimenting the venue, the hotel rooms, the food and the staff ever since the wedding.
Craigsanquhar will certainly be a regular haunt for us in the future, and we would recommend it time and time again.

Thanks again to all of the staff.

“May Wedding”

I got married here on the 28th May this year and couldn’t recommend this venue enough. We stayed for the full weekend and booked out all the villas. The villas are lovely and spacious, with a great outside area for entertaining. There is a fire pit near the villas, which is great fun for night time! The rooms in the house are a bit dated, but they have a lot of character and are very spacious.

We got married outside on the grass and it has amazing views, which was great for getting photographs taken. We had our drinks reception outside in front of the Coach House, which is a lovely sun trap. The reception was in the Coach House, which is a very big room, lots of space for dancing!. Everyone really enjoyed the food. The staff were very attentive.

In the lead up to the wedding, Fiona was very helpful and always quickly responded to any emails I sent. She was great at keeping me right and helped to put my mind at ease!

I would highly recommend this as a wedding venue!

“Amazing wedding venue”
I recently had my wedding at Craigsanquhar House Hotel in October and it truly was the best day of our lives. Fiona and the wedding planning team were excellent and made the process easy. Fiona was organised, friendly, her communication was great and the day went brilliantly. I really can’t thank them enough. The waiting, bar and kitchen staff were also great and helped to make our day even better through their excellent service, attention to detail and friendliness with our guests.

We were lucky enough to be married outside on the lawn where our guests were all very taken with the view and gardens. We then had our reception in the stables which is beautiful. Having the bar outside of the main room and an open fire were the small touches that made all the difference. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Craigsanquhar as a wedding venue.

“August wedding”
We got married here in August  and can’t fault it!

Everything was so well organised and everyone was really helpful. We stayed in the lodged for the weekend and they really are perfect. Other family members had rooms in the house and they all seemed very happy.

The food was lovely and there’s plenty of choice at breakfast.

Staff are all amazing and and I can’t recommend this enough as a wedding venue.

We had an amazing weekend and will definitely be back at Craigsanquhar soon xxx
Stayed August 2015, travelled with family

I got married here October 17th and to sum it up in one word would be ‘perfect’. The staff were amazing and could not do enough to help and did everything to make the day a dream come true which it was. They work long hours and work hard at making sure it is a special day and that the function suite looks gorgeous. The views are stunning and the bridal suite was beautiful. I can’t see how any bride would be disappointed.

“Perfect Wedding Venue”
“We were married at Craigsanquhar on 11th July  and had a wonderful wedding day. The hotel is situated in a beautiful countryside area and we were lucky enough to have the weather on our side allowing us to have our ceremony outside on Craigsanquhars great lawn with spectactuar views. Throughout the build-up to the wedding and on the day the staff were fantastic and incredibly helpful. The wedding coordinator Fiona was exceptional. During the planning stages she was always organised and a great help to us. On the day she made sure everything was running smoothly and that we always had anything we needed. Our guests were impressed by the organisation at Craigsanquhar, making each part of our day perfect and the day itself run smoothly. We had a truly wonderful wedding day at Craigsanquhar and would like to thank Fiona and the staff at Craigsanquhar for helping to make our day so special. We would not hestitate to recommend Craigsanquhar as a perfect wedding venue to other couples.”

“Fantastic wedding!”
“We recently held our wedding ceremony and reception at Craigsanquhar. From the moment we saw the venue we knew it would be perfect for us, we live locally but the rural surroundings make the venue feel like you are a million miles away, yet 4 miles down the road and you are back in town. The wedding co-ordinators Fiona and Joanne were fantastic, from our initial enquiry right up until the morning after and even days after the wedding Fiona kept in touch just to make sure everything was as it should be, they took all the stress away which meant that we could just get on with being excited and enjoying our wedding. The venue is stunning and is constantly being improved and each time we visited the place just got better and better! All the staff are totally dedicated and nothing seemed like to much trouble, all our guests commented on just how beautiful and seamless the wedding was, unfortunately we can’t take the credit for this as it was down to the hardwork of all the staff in this beautiful venue! From the moment we checked in to the lovely spens suite (bridal suite) until we left after a rather fantastic scottish breakfast we were treated like royalty and it certainly won’t be long before we pop back for a bar lunch! Top marks Craigsanquhar and thank you for having us!”


“Our Perfect Wedding”
“We were married at Craigsanquhar on Sunday 5th of July and couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. From the minute we booked the Wedding Craigsanquhar have been brilliant. We had great weather and managed to have our ceremony outside on the lawn it was perfect, can’t thank Joanne and Fiona enough for all their help leading up to and on the Wedding day, everything was perfect and all of our guests thought so too. Would recommend to anyone looking for a Wedding venue and we will definately be back for a stay in the hotel.”

“Perfect place for our wedding!!”
I cannot recommend Craigsanquhar House more highly following our wedding on 18 April 2015!
Firstly, the hotel & lodges provided amazing accommodation. The rooms were so lovely and all of our family and friends who stayed for 2 nights found them very luxurious. The honeymoon suite was also fantastic & very spacious – great for getting ready on the wedding morning!

The setting of the hotel is also just incredible! We were lucky enough to have a warm sunny day and managed to have our ceremony on the lawn in front of the house. It was AMAZING! It couldn’t have been more beautiful & perfect!!!
The food was also absolutely fab! The hotel provided a buffet breakfast for all guests which totally hit the spot! The food at the wedding was also perfect – the meal was incredible and they provided an awesome buffet later in the evening!
Finally, the thing that really made everything come together was the staff! The whole team were fantastic but in particular Joanne & Fiona were there for the whole day making sure everything ran smoothly! They honestly did the best job ever! THANK YOU SO MUCH!”

“Craigsanquhar gave us the perfect wedding”
I cannot recommend Craigsanquhar highly enough — we held our wedding here on Saturday 16th May this year and it was perfect.
From the day we viewed the venue, newly engaged, to when we left in the taxi after our reception, we were taken care of with great care by Lara, and then Fiona, and later Joanne as well, when Lara was off on maternity. Any questions we had were answered quickly and with the utmost attention, and every time we visited the venue, whether for a meeting or our food and wine tasting, Fiona was always on hand to greet us and guide us through the process. Before and on our big day, Fiona and Joanne were so efficient and calming — I knew that my requests would be met and I would have nothing to worry about. The other members of staff on the day were friendly and hard-working, and I felt like Craigsanquhar was home, which further helped me relax and enjoy myself.
As well as having a beautiful, quiet location and a lovely venue for the reception, Craigsanquhar has a wonderful restaurant team — our food was brilliant (the sticky toffee pudding is still being admired weeks on!) and the waiting staff were great at offering wine top ups during the meal. The evening buffet was also great, and many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed this on the evening.
Thank you so much, especially to Fiona and Joanne, who make a cracking team and are always happy to help. We had such a great day, and we’ll definitely be returning for a nice meal in the hotel restaurant and an overnight break in the future to relive the memories of our special day.”
