“Stunningly Beautifull Rooms”

Written on: 01/02/2017 by Munn368 (1 review written)

Kelham Hall has a stunning interior. We enjoyed a glass of wine in the beautiful lounge. The service was excellent and we were treated like royalty. The hall has a stunning concert room for large events. The whole place is most impressive. Visited December 2016 … Read Full Review

“Management determined to ruin the day!”

Written on: 05/08/2014 by NMehanger (1 review written)

This is a beautiful venue and our decorators and caterers did a superb job. However, the management of the venue and the wedding planner were awful and worked with the attitude of "we have your money so tough!" Prior to the wedding, we had met with Becky (co-ordinator) to agree final arrangements. The Monday before the wedding (which was on Saturday) we were told that we had no rooms to get changed and we (bride and groom) would have to share with the campers, meaning we had to arrange a hotel… Read Full Review

“Wedding reception”

Written on: 03/07/2014 by Isabela187 (1 review written)

Would not recommend this venue for a wedding reception. We were served poor quality food and the service was awful. The director admitted we we're let down but refused to refund any of the pre paid bill and still not had a receipt for the money we paid. The wedding was over a year ago. Definitely not worth the money paid and spoiled the wedding day… Read Full Review

“New owners ignore unhappy customers and offer no service”

Written on: 16/11/2013

I, along with many other customers, am incredibly unhappy with the new direction that Kelham Hall has taken since ownership has changed hands. Despite expressing this dis-satisfaction directly, the only action that the owners have taken is to delete complaints from their Facebook page and block users who dare challenge how they organise events or question the prices they charge. They have also removed the comment or review tool due to continued negative comments. This is whilst getting… Read Full Review

Everything was first class - from the initial enquiry to the wedding day. Couldn't have asked for more for my wedding. The venue was gorgeous - absolutely perfect. Thank you!… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/09/2010

We had our wedding at Kelham Hall in August, i'd always loved the venue and the building was definately a winner on the day.
We hired the the music room for our wedding breakfast and the carriage court for the evening. we had 80 guests and we felt both rooms worked well for these numbers.

The food was well presented and delicious for the wedding breakfast- we went in the day before and set up and Kelham Hall accomodated all the little extras we had thought of, with no problems.

In the evening… Read Full Review

“The overall rating for Kelham Hall, Newark, Notts is 3...”

Written on: 27/10/2009

The overall rating for Kelham Hall, Newark, Notts is 3 stars due to the building being so beautiful - the perfect setting for a wedding. Having a wedding in the building is partly good value for money, as you'd perhaps expect to pay more, but in terms of the service provided by the staff at our wedding, it was not such good value for money.

The staff made a number of unprofessional errors, including making an error with our table plan, so that close family were at the back of the room, while… Read Full Review

“Photography opportunities within the interior of...”

Written on: 15/07/2008 by eternal insomnia (1 review written)

Photography opportunities within the interior of Kelham Hall are very limited.

The catering company, which aren't optional, left a lot to be desired putting up a buffet for 100 which didn't feed the 80 guests we had. My husband and I didn't get a bite to eat, having allowed our guests to eat first, until we'd complained constantly for almost an hour at which point a tray of apparently partially frozen halved bog standard catering pork pies and quiche was served alongside a few sandwiches… Read Full Review
