This magnificent hotel wedding venue is positioned on the fringe of the city, adjacent to Millbay Park which offers a fantastic green space as well as period steps and pillars perfect for big-day photographs. A short stroll from the hotel is another wonderful photographic opportunity at Plymouth Hoe, which offers sensational ocean views across Plymouth Sound.The hotel is a Gothic Grade 11 listed building with feature windows, towers and turrets. It boasts a canopy entrance, ornate architectural features and revolving entrance doors. The interior offers a wealth of historic features, with grand rooms and hallways, glittering chandeliers, period columns and a stunning Grade II listed sweeping staircase.
Ceremonies take place in a variety of areas. The restaurant with its domed ceiling is a wonderful setting and suited to a micro wedding of 15 people as well as a much larger affair. The Millbay Suite is a sophisticated setting for an intimate ceremony of eight people boasting a feature fireplace and the Hayward Room is a magnificent space featuring beautiful bay windows showcasing superb views over King Point Marina, again for a minimum of eight people and a maximum of 50 (when restrictions lift). Receptions large and small take place in the Ballroom, a grand space with atmospheric lighting, a fixed stage for entertainment, a private bar and a dancefloor.
We love... that overnight accommodation is included for the couple in a four-poster room with champagne, flowers, chocolate and a full English breakfast.
