Set on the banks of the beautiful river The Great House offers a sweeping setting, with manicured lawns and stunning scenery, the perfect location for a stunning wedding in Berkshire. Steeped in history, this beautiful house and river views provides the perfect romantic setting. The Great House is in one of the most idyllic wedding venues that Berkshire has to offer. A real ‘hidden' gem tucked away in stunning Sonning on the river
 The hotel completed a stunning £7M refurbishment in December 2016 with the Launch of the new Great House Lodge. The Great House Lodge is licensed for civil ceremonies. If you are planning a church wedding, we can recommend from the many charming places in the surrounding countryside. The Hotel is just a few steps from our riverside entrance, so your celebrations can extend out onto the lawn next to the banks of the river.
The Dining Room at The Great House Lodge is naturally lit and surrounded by its own terrace overlooking the river. The Great House Lodge can host a ceremony for 115 and an evening reception for up to 200 people. If you are planning on having pre-wedding dinners or receptions, the private dining room in The Great House Lodge can host from 10 to 150 guests - perfect for “night before” family gatherings or group breakfasts. All rooms overlook the river, the perfect setting and view for ceremonies and receptions.
Minimum numbers 60.

    I apologise for the delay in reviewing. We stayed here at the end of February for my daughters wedding at nearby Stanlake Park Wine Estate. I would like to say the room we had (room 50) was outstanding as was all the staff at the hotel. We had friends and family also stayed and they all happy with their rooms. So friendly and helpful. We ate next door at the Coppa Club the night before wedding in an igloo and food and staff were great and the breakfast just what we all needed 🤣 thank you again 🙂

    I wanted somewhere a bit special to stay to celebrate my 40th birthday. We researched around and found The Great House. Everything was wonderful. The hotel was superbly clean and staff were very helpful. We would 100% stay here again. It surpassed expectations. PS. The remote control is in the drawer.

    Another beautifully relaxing 2 night stay in our very spacious Biggy Room. The staff are friendly and helpful and the Bar/Restaurant were both excellent. We are very much looking forward to our next stay.

    Stayed one night in standard room in main house and ate dinner and breakfast at the Coppa Club. Room stylishly decorated, proper fridge a bonus (can be turned off if worried it will keep you awake). Bathroom good quality and great shower. As it's an old building, single glazed windows so was noisy in morning. Recommend ear plugs! Coppa Club really nice, with a chilled atmosphere. Drinks reasonably priced. Dinner good quality and well-made cocktails. Breakfast tasty but let down by below par service. Surprised on check out we were not asked how stay was so we could provide feedback. Overall though, nice stay.
