Fantastic Venue

We had our wedding in the Shearwater Hotel in December 2023. From the first moment we entered the hotel for our viewing we were blown away. It is a beautiful hotel with plenty of space, staff so friendly and helpful, no request was too big. The wedding coordinator Chloe in particular was excellent. She was so organised and easy to deal with during the planning. The day ran seamlessly from start to finish, and the atmosphere around the hotel was amazing. Our guests were very impressed with everything, the food in particular. People are still raving about the beef! I would highly recommend the Shearwater Hotel to any couples looking for their venue!
