Celebrate your special day in style at the Isle of Wight’s classic
The Balcony room is our most formal setting and offers a very intimate option for your special day. The 1930s deco style resembles a contemporary cruise liner, commanding equally breathtaking sea views.
This whole floor is available for a civil ceremony or wedding breakfast. It can hold 80 seated guests for a civil ceremony with seating for a further 80 on the balcony to offer canapes and champagne while your guests await the Bride’s arrival.
This room can also be used for your formal wedding breakfast, seating 50 – 60 guests, depending on the layout required. The adjoining smaller room can also be used for very intimate ceremonies, seating up to 24 guests for a ceremony layout. This room is perfect for the Bride and her attendants to get ready in before their grand entrance into the Balcony room. The versatility of this room could also house a children area to give them a space of their own from the formalities of the big day.
Our Crowning glory is our roof terrace with seating for 150 and the most spectacular views of the Channel and most of Ventnor. Canapes and cocktails can be enjoyed by your guests while they anticipate your arrival or enjoy the splendour during your photo break.
