Lorna Kirk and Martyn Neal

"If anyone is planning a wedding, this is the perfect venue; service, food, rooms, location! It is absolutely superb! From start to finish all our family and guests couldn't have one negative comment. Room Tip: We had room 205, beautiful decor, crisp bedding, much larger than average and a massive bed! "

"Our son's fiance chose the Downe Arms after quite a search, and are we glad she did! The service was brilliant, as was the food. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble and everyone was treated courteously and with a smile. Some of the guests stayed in the hotel, as did my son, his new wife and members of her family. The unseasonable warm and sunny weather made the grounds picturesque and full advantage was taken. The parking is also a bonus - there is plenty of it! And if you're there on a Friday morning (which some of the guests were) there is a Farmers' Market in the car park. "

"Wedding Reception Reviewed 15th April 2013 My daughter’s wedding reception at this hotel was exceptional ! From the cups of tea and coffee on the day prior to the breakfast on the day after. The roaring fire set off the room on a cold but sunny day. The wedding breakfast itself was served efficiently, very tasty and above all hot . Jane’s (lady in charge ) eye for detail and experience is an asset that the whole establishment should be proud of. Must say a huge thank you to all of the staff for making this wedding truly happy and memorable event for all our family !! Great Wedding Venue !! "
