Testimonials

My husband and I had our wedding reception at Island House Hotel and also stayed there, along with our family and friends. Everyone at Island House was wonderful and incredibly helpful. When the forecast showed rain, they offered to move our space for us and made sure we were happy with where we ended up. The food and service are top-notch. We can’t wait to come back to Island House to celebrate our anniversary!

Hands down, perfection! The staff at Island House Hotel made us feel like royalty during our wedding weekend. They were so courteous and welcoming! Our ceremony was on the front garden terrace on a Sunday afternoon in June. Nothing could have made the day more perfect. From the stunning landscape and water in the background to the sounds of horse hooves on the ground to the smells of fudge in the air, we loved everything about our wedding!

Our entire wedding weekend could not have been more perfect thanks to your wonderful staff and hotel. We look forward to returning each year to celebrate our anniversary.
