The Simsbury Inn is the best place to have a wedding. Patti made sure all of the details were taken care of, the food was delicous, and the service was great. All my guests had a great time, and everything turned out exactly has planned! Thanks to Patti and everyone who helped make our wedding great!
I had my wedding at The Simsbury Inn this past August and it was exactly as I imagined it would be! The property is absolutely beautiful and because they only host one wedding per day, I was the exclusive on-property bride and had the rights to all on-site photography.
There is a new glass atrium which leads out to the private patio off of the ballroom so my guests were able to enjoy cocktail hour outdoors. (And having spectcular weather that day, it was so nice that they were able to enjoy it!)
The food was also delicious! The filet mignon could be cut with a fork and the salmon with horseradish crust and lemon beurre blanc was so different than you typically find at a restaurant.
The staff was so attentive, and my server Alexis was there each time I needed something. And especially Patti Candels, the Director of Catering, who offered me guidance all through my planning.
It was a day to remember forecer!
I loved the inn. They were always helpful in answering my many questions and provided great service. I liked how the table centerpieces came with the package and how the inn allowed us to hold an after party in the lobby. They would just move us if the noise was too loud, rather than be rude in any way.
Additionally, the hotel rooms are very nice, the food is wonderful and the location is pretty.
I had a great experience working with the Simsbury Inn for my ceremony and reception.
The package we chose was a great value - drinks, food and cake all included, with options to add or remove courses that allowed us to keep within budget. It also included a free night in the bridal suite, which was so convenient, and the room was beautiful.
Our coordinator, Jeanine was really attentive, answering any questions that came up. She really let me be in control of the flow of communication, which was really helpful.
The venue is also beautiful - it has that very old, classic New England hotel look, and was decorated for Christmas for our December wedding.
The food and cake were also delicious - we got so many compliments on our choice of venue!
I'm from Simsbury and had been to one wedding here before but ours was PHENOMENAL!! All of the guests talked about how much they loved it too! The staffing at SI (Jeanine in particular) are fantastic! They let us go to our honeymoon suite and relax for about 20 mins before we entered into our reception and they brought us a tray of appetizers. They made the process easy and beautiful. They have an in house bakery chef and the cake was absolutely amazing - they also will make you a small cake within one year of your wedding instead of having to freeze the top of the cake! She helped us bring in different wines than they offered and they paid attention to every little detail that we asked for. They were absolutely fabulous and I would recommend them to everyone!!
We had our wedding here, and they made sure everything was perfect! They only have one wedding reception per day so they really give the bride and groom and royal treatment and your guests can enjoy the lovely common areas, restaurant, and bar. Lovely sourroundings and reasonable prices so all our friends and family could stay over for the weekend. The food was delcious too! I cannot say enough great things about this place.
For the day of the wedding I had the bridal suite that opens to a small function room for all of my ladies to get ready in. We had brunch while getting our hair and makeup done- it was super relaxing and really fun girl time. They really think of all the details here. I am a former event planner who has been a bridesmaid many times and the service was above and beyond my expectations.
We had 200 guests at our wedding and took up about half the guest rooms at the inn. It was the perfect size for us. We were able to have the destination wedding feel without worrying about booking the whole place as some inns expect. Patti, our wedding coordinator was amazing, she handled all the reception details on the big day, I didn't have to worry about a thing and was able to just relax and enjoy!
Also, if you're trying to save money like us, you can do 3 hours open bar and then switch over to cash. This was the best deal I have seen for any reception of this calliber and our guests had plenty during that time.
My fiance and I were a little hesitant about picking the Simsbury Inn because we wanted to keep the cost down. In the end, we were only doing this once and LOVED the feeling we had when in the rooms and talking with the staff. Everyone of our guests who booked a room, had such amazing words about the staff they spoke with other the phone. I am so glad we had our wedding here!
Our experience with the Simsbury Inn was easy and fun from start to finish. Unlike many other venues, they only host one wedding a day and make everything about you. I was blown away with how accommodating they were with everything we wanted. I can't say enough great things about this venue.
I am so grateful to the amazing staff that helped put my reception together. I didn't have to worry about a thing!! It was a flawless evening that I was able to spend with family and friends thanks to the amazing people at the Simsbury Inn!
The simsbury inn was amazing. The wedding was beautiful and the staff was professional and welcoming. The food was delicious. I highly recommend the simsbury inn for an unforgettable wedding experience.
We used the Simsbury Inn for our son and daughter-in-law's rehearsal dinner. It was FANTASTIC. We live in NJ, but had to plan a rehearsal dinner in CT. My husband and I drove up in March and went to several places to try to find something. After meeting Janine at the Simsbury Inn..our search ended and we even cancelled some appointments at other places. From start to finish, she was SO helpful and professional. She helped us to plan a custom upscale barbecue buffet, complete with delicious fried chicken, ribs, corn on the cob, french fries and lots more. It was beautifully displayed outside on covered patio,on a wonderful August evening. The checkered table clothes, lights, hanging ferns, bar area and appetizer display.... A+. Our guests had a great time, and it was a breeze for us with their expertise. By the way, when we mentioned one of our guests had Celiac disease, they made her a special meal. The banquet manager attending to us that night, was FANTASTIC...and the bartender? EXCELLENT. We are so happy with this choice. SIMPLE.
Overall the experience of booking the wedding was very easy. The packages are all-inclusive with food, drinks, wedding cake and even a small flower arrangement. Jeanine, the event coordinator, is a pleasure to work with and very efficient, especially for type A, detail oriented people. The reception room is very fitting for the New England Inn feel. All of the guests commented onthe quality of the food and some even said that it was the best food that they had ever had at a wedding. The bartenders were great. There was never a line to get a drink. Overall it was a great experience and we could not have asked for a better venue.
We recently were married and our reception was at the Simsbury Inn. The food received multiple compliments, both the meals and the appetizers. The bar tenders were great with making sure that there were never lines for people obtaining drinks. The reception room is a little older but it is in a New England Inn type setting so it is very fitting to the type of environment where it is located. The event planners at the venue are very easy to work with and make the event planning very stress free. The per person guest price includes the meals, drinks, small flower arrangements and the cake. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for an all-inclusive way to plan a wedding.
We had our wedding at the Simsbury Inn, it was amazing! Patty was awesome! Through the whole planning she was there to answer any questions. The pricing and the food was amazing!!!
Great service, good food. nice setting with cozy overnight accomodations for guests.;recption room is an odd shape and if cocktail hour is held inside, the cocktails area is tight.
The Simsbury Inn was perfect for us because we had many out of town guests. It has all the amenities of a high class hotel, but felt like a mansion and not a high rise. Our guests were able to spend the night which meant no one had to travel after the reception. The food was delicous, and the wedding coordinators helped us figure out every detail. The guests raved about the place! Included in the wedding package was a suite for the bride and groom complete with champagne and fresh turkey sandwiches for a late night snack!;We found the dance floor a bit small, so consider checking with them about dance floor options.
CT-type Inn very 'New Englandy'. Patti was excellent to deal with and the waitstaff was spectacular.
It was completely different from the normal reception hall. The details in the decorations were beautiful
