Walter Raleigh Hotel

Walter Raleigh Hotel


Was in today for lunch absolutely beautiful nice to see place busy waitress was lovely be back soon
I can’t wait to visit you, as soon as this world gets back to normal...or some what normal I will be there!
Myself and my hubby had our wedding here on the 1st of March and I cannot recommend the hotel enough. From the first day we met Michael Brett and his staff at the wedding fair in 2018, they could not do enough. They were excellent to deal with and coming up to the big day, nothing was any trouble. Onto the wedding day, the hotel outshone itself, food was outstanding, accommodation was amazing, staff were brilliant and because we had the majority of rooms booked, the hotel felt like ours for the day. In the ensuing chats from friends, family and neighbours about our wedding, the hotel and the food was one of the highlights. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Walter Raleigh as a wedding venue and I know that you will have as good a day as we did. SiobhΓ‘n and Eugene
We are delighted to have another happy family here in Walter Raleigh hotel tonight . to celebrate 70th birthday πŸΈπŸΈπŸΈπŸŽ‚ HAPPY BIRTHDAY FROM WRH πŸŽ‚πŸŒ·

A Night not to be missed. Get there early to avoid Dis-appointment. Thanks to the Walter Raleigh Hotel who are one of the many Game Sponsors.
We went to dinner here recently, in the restaurant and I couldn’t praise it enough. The food was excellent. I had the lamb shank and my husband had the salmon everything was first class. I would highly recommend this restaurant! Their mashed potato is the nicest I’ve tasted. I’d love to know their secret!! also the waitress was lovely and very friendly πŸ‘πŸ‘

Walter Raleigh Weddings

A Message to all future Bride & Grooms
For most of you 2020 was going to be the most exciting year of your lives. It was due to be the year of planning, organising, stress, meeting family and friends and, most importantly, marrying your loved one. It was due to be the year of booking your priest/celebrant, ceremony music, bridal party, stag & hen party, table planning, menu tasting, booking bands, DJs etc , organising accommodation, dress fitting, hair/make-up trials, flowers, wedding cake, invitations, photographer, honeymoon, Jewellery, wedding transport, wedding accessories and, of course, the post wedding party .
To put everything into perspective, it is a mammoth task for any bride & groom to organise all of the above, especially now when you have had to undo all this hard work and re-book everything running the risk of being unable to re-schedule your preferred suppliers and will have to compromise.
For many of our bride & grooms this year you had to do all of this with little or no notice and no clear guidelines of when you can have the wedding you dreamed of .
Weddings as a rule are stressful but this is a whole different kind of stress that you are dealing with at the moment .
Maybe weddings will revert back to the traditional wedding breakfast like our parents and grandparents in years gone by . Whatever the outcome will be , rest assured that you can still have your special day . It may not be the day you had planned but we are here to make your day as magical as possible .
Each of our wedding couples receive a complimentary Walter Raleigh Hotel wedding journal to document your special journey as you plan your wedding day . Now more than ever, you will see exactly how much will have changed in so little time. The contrast between your first entry in your journal compared to your last entry will be amazing, but the bottom line is that you will still get married, you will still have your day and we will still be at hand to ensure you (eventually!) get the day you deserve .
In years to come we will remember COVID-19 weddings .
I will as always be at hand to take your calls, answer any questions you may have and to discuss all options with you.
Always at your Service.
Michael Brett
General Manager
