We had the most incredible day. As soon as we visited we knew it was just the right setting for our relaxed beachside wedding and on the day it worked better than I could ever imagine. We can't recommend The Gallivant more highly enough and look forward to returning for our one year anniversary.

It was absolutely perfect, everything ran so smoothly. We had the absolute best day and I can't thank you enough for all the hard work and effort put into making our day so wonderful!

L and C, July 2022

We have nothing but profound thanks and great things to say. Everything was wonderful and people are still talking about you. The thing people (and ourselves) felt the most, was how easy, kind and friendly you all are. For such an upscale venue, that is rare and very valuable!Head chef Jamie put together the most incredible menu for the day and the quality of the food and drink served across our weekend really stood out and was a big highlight for us. The venue styling feels so sophisticated yet relaxed and having the exclusive use of such a beautiful space and accommodation felt very special. There were little details at every turn that made the day so personal to us, like the Bloody Mary 'Recovery Station' at breakfast as an example! Our day couldn't have been more perfect, thank you all so much for the efforts you went to for us, it's one we will always remember.

I and A, July 2022

I just wanted to take a moment to say an enormous thank you for all you did on the weekend. From arrival on Friday afternoon to our final breakfast on Sunday, your team were so welcoming, attentive and efficient. We genuinely had a perfect day. All of our guests commented on how lovely the staff are and what a special hotel The Gallivant is.

K and K, October 2022

A massive, giant THANK YOU for the amazing experience we had at our wedding. It absolutely exceeded our expectations. The hands on support and super attentive guidance on the day itself, both before, during and after is worth special mention as it really smoothed things and de-stressed the day. And it probably goes without saying the food was phenomenal also, and has been commented on by almost literally every guest. We will be back!
