Wedding service and reception venue

This wedding reception venue in Norwich includes traditional and stunning rooms, and attentive staff that can assist with everything from decorations to fabulous food as you plan your big day. You will be provided with as much freedom or support as you desire, as you are welcomed to invite any DJ or Live band to the event. Your guests can be assured of a comfortable nights stay when booking one of our en-suite bedrooms, so after a night of dancing they'll be taking their heels off and bowties off in no time at all.

Catering

If you desire the hotel to cater your special day, superb quality food for all your guests is promised. The catering team offers three varied (yet equally delicious) three-course menus. Additionally, an evening buffet selection is available for those more informal affairs. Three celebratory drinks packages are also available, including arrival drinks, breakfast drinks and toast drinks for guests. The Best Western wants to relieve as much stress as possible for you, assuring you that the congratulatory drinks will be flowing.

Honeymoon Suite

The honeymoon suite is a must have to end your special day in luxurious comfort, as wooden beams and a Jacuzzi bath create the most romantic of settings. If you opt for the full wedding package - including a wedding breakfast, disco and an evening buffet - the bridal suite is complimentary, so make sure you dont miss out.
