Wedding season in Melksham - somewhere good to stay

Love BirdsOn Spring and Summer weekends, Well House Manor is either packed or quiet - it's the love and wedding season. With great aunts and uncles coming into town from all over the country, and / or with the groom's parents and the best man showing up too, there's little room at the bride's place for them all to stay and the bride - being local - is likely to know what an ideal spot we are. Being business accommodation that's mainly associated with our open source courses, we do little conventional advertising and so we're quieter at weekends, but we certainly can't justify something approaching a four figure sum to get an "AA" rating just to fill five rooms over the summer season of weekends. I'm pleased to report that this weekend - once again - the guests who filled the place were delighted.


The morning afterWe've found another niche within the wedding market too - with the happy couple very often coming back to Well House Manor after a long and eventful day, spending the night with us before heading off the next day - be it for an exotic holiday, or in some cases, alas, to rejoin their unit.

The typical wedding guest visitor is very different to the typical businessman ... who in turn varies somewhat from the typical course delegate. And variety is the spice of life; those of you who know me will know that I enjoy my curry very spicy, so you'll know just how much I welcome the variety in customers. The business guest is more likely to be concerned at getting on line and borrowing adapters for our UK sockets, the delegate will be very interested in the technical library and the coffee machine, and the weekend / wedding guest will often arrive very early or very late (so we have a chart of travel times to help them) and need a taxi at short notice to the Assembly Hall (it's quicker to walk, by the way), Cleeve House, Semington Village Hall, Shaw Church or some other venue near Melksham.


I should add - we do not limit our guests to business people, delegates and wedding parties - if you're visiting the area to see what's around (Bath, Lacock, Caen Hill, Avebury, Westbury, Longleat, Stonehenge ...) we're an excellent base - and we love this area and can offer you some tips too. We're a bit different to most - we compare our rooms to the five star standard of a hotel, but we don't offer accommodation for Children, nor a bar, nor do we have a chef to cook you an evening meal on site. If that's the combination that takes your fancy, please do try us out.
