Weddings at Talland Bay Hotel are as unique as the venue itself. Our dedicated wedding team will ensure that you enjoy a perfect day, tailored to you. Here's what a few of our happy newlyweds and wedding guests have to say:
The most magical day of our lives
"We recently chose the Talland Bay Hotel as the venue for our wedding and had both the ceremony and the evening do held at the hotel. We chose this hotel over many other venues that we looked at due to many reasons. Firstly, the friendly and organised staff that met with us and talked us through the options made things very relaxed and straight forward. Secondly, the food and drink options were varied but flexible and after tasting the quality, we were sold! The overwhelming reason that we chose the Talland Bay Hotel however, was the overall attention to detail and unique, forever variable décor mixed with the breath-taking natural beauty of the grounds and view of the ocean. This hotel is extremely well maintained and clean, with both the management and the waiting staff being very tentative and professional. The hotel and all of its unique rooms certainly impressed not only us, but our family and friends also.
During the planning experience, we were very well looked after and nothing was made to feel like it was too much work. We were also thankful that we never felt it was just a ‘money making’ exercise, but felt that the staff genuinely wanted the best for our special day without going over budget.
In particular, the assistant manager Jack and the head housekeeper Penny were amazing throughout our experience. Jack worked so hard to help us plan our day and went above and beyond his duties during our wedding to make sure it really was our perfect day. Penny helped to decorate the hotel in such a perfect manner that it completely exceeded our expectations.
We would like to thank everyone at the hotel for working so hard at creating such beautiful memories for us and for making our wedding day the most magical day of our lives."

Looked after us at every step
"After visiting Talland Bay Hotel on numerous occasions and having a splendid time, it was an easy choice to have our Wedding there. With a venue that was simply stunning and attentive professional Staff made that choice perfect. Stephen and Jack took away any stress we had and looked after us at every step. Added to the venue was food to a standard that far exceeded any expectations which was definitely cooked with passion and skill. Our guests initially complained about the distance they had to travel but were pleasantly astonished and felt it was certainly worthwhile. All the staff made us feel like we were part of a big Talland Bay Hotel family, and having our wedding at Talland Bay Hotel was both a privilege and one of the most heart-warming events of our lives made possible by excellent and professional staff. Many thanks to all at The Talland Bay Hotel."

"Before I start this review let me just say I have never wrote a review on anything before in my life , I have never seen the need! However my need has now changed because I now need to shout from the rooftops about how amazing this beautiful hotel is. My partner and I were Wed at talland bay 2 days ago (currently on honeymoon but had to let everybody know about this hotel while it was on my mind)
We checked into the hotel doing the wrath of “the beast of the east “ amongst the chaos of road closures and worse! The staff that were on shift had been snowed in for a solid two days and were visually knackered, but yet dispite this they were so attentive to our needs and cooked us the most delightful supper. The decor of the hotel is worth the trip alone and if it was not for the splendid gin menu making that oh so comfortable bed call me I fear I would never moved from the warmth of the open fire.
The next day was the big day and from the second I stepped downstairs for breakfast it was obvious that I had made the best decision of my life to have my wedding here (let’s not forget it’s one of the biggest expenses you will ever make in life and not to be treated lightly) every thing I had dreamed of came true that day I would love to go into details but there is not enough time left in my day to explain the emotions I feel for the effort and attention to detail that Stephen and his team somehow pulled out of the bag for us (remember they had still been snowed in for 2 days previous!!!!!)
Would I have changed a single thing about my wedding ? NO. I wish I could do it over and over again everyday, this hotel truly made the happiest day of my life a reality and a magical memory which I will carry with me for the rest of my life."

Unique, personalised and focused around the Bride and Groom
"The planning process with Stephen at Talland Bay was dealt with professionally and with welcome advice and assistance in helping us put the whole weekend together and seeing it through to the end, nothing was out of place or off plan throughout the event. Nick and his kitchen team created us some wonderful food, from the buffet on Friday night until breakfast on Sunday, every single item was a delight. The wedding meal was proper size portions. All the food was beautifully displayed and tasted delicious.
Each room is decorated beautifully, most with fantastic views. Housekeeping do an exceptional job keeping the whole hotel spotless.The hotel really paid attention to the smaller details and made the day totally unique, personalised and focused around the Bride and Groom. They really went the extra mile to accommodate specific items we wanted and indeed added their own surprises for us to the day, which were so kind.
We have had many comments from all our guests at how wonderful the hotel was, the staff, food and the whole weekend."

The Most Perfect Wedding Day and Weekend
"We have just returned from our perfect Wedding weekend at Talland Bay Hotel.
Well, what can we say! Thank you so much to Stephen, Jack, Nick and the whole team at Talland Bay Hotel for the most wonderful Wedding day. From our arrival on Friday until the moment we left on Sunday absolutely every member of staff were fantastic, anticipating what we needed even before we knew ourselves!
We have had many comments from all our guests at how wonderful the hotel was, the staff, food and the whole weekend. I would certainly recommend Talland Bay to anyone considering a Cornish Wedding"

"We, and a lot of our family and friends, stayed at Talland Bay last weekend where we held our wedding. Everybody there was blown away by how accommodating the staff were and of course by the glorious location.
Everything is spotlessly clean, nothing is too much trouble and everything from the food to the organisation of the event was faultless. We, and I'm sure all of the people who stayed there to attend our wedding, would not hesitate to stay again.
Small hotels can be the very good and this is among the best I've ever stayed in."

Best of the Best
"My wife and I recently attended a wedding at the Talland Bay hotel. After the experience I felt I owed the hotel a rave review. This hotel is so good that I'm even contemplating keeping it a secret! Hotel staff are very friendly, very efficient and a real joy. The hotel decor is quirky with some great art and a great sense of humour.
Each room is decorated differently but all of them are amazing with comfy beds and all the things you would find in a 5 star hotel and more. There is plenty of free parking too. The food available is first class and the hotel also has a well stocked bar. I rarely say this about hotels but I WANT to come back again - and will do In the summer. I'd like to convey my thanks to everyone who made us welcome and made our stay perfect in every way. This hotel has won many awards and it's easy to see why. If I could award more than 5 stars I would. Wow!"
