My sister and brother-in-law were married at Ashworth by the Sea about 3 years ago. Back then, we found it a lovely hotel and the wedding coordinator was responsive and very helpful. When my fiance and I started looking at wedding sites, we looked EVERYWHERE...from Rhode Island to New Hampshire, from barns to vineyards to hotels. When we started contacting places, Laura from Ashworth was by far the nicest, most personable, helpful, genuiuene person we talked with. Other hotels ignored our phone calls and emails (goodbye business!). Laura was so great about answering our questions and meeting with us that it made the decision so much easier. The pricing and value of wedding options also can't be beat. We also had our tasting, which was absolutely delicious! PLUS, the hotel underwent some renovations and it still has that lovely and elegant seaside charm. We can't wait to get married here next year!
Our entire wedding weekend took place at the Ashworth and we couldn't be happier with how every thing went. We worked with Laura throughout the planning process, and she was incredibly professional and accommodating. She made us feel as if we were her only clients, when we know that's far from reality. Laura was quick to respond to emails, and always assured us that things would run smoothly, which they did.
From the start of the weekend with our rehearsal dinner on Friday, to our after-wedding brunch on Sunday, our wedding weekend was everything we could've imagined and more. That was all thanks to Laura and the amazing Ashworth staff! Thank you!
Very well run start to finish. Our wedding had approx. 110 people who left very happy. Great cocktail hour on outside deck, excellent meal, place was setup beautifully and a very attentive staff though out the evening. Call and ask for Laura she did a great job for us and was a wealth of knowledge.
I can't say enough about the job the Ashworth did. Laura became the event coordinator only about a month before our wedding, but she did an amazing job. She was prepared for everything that came up and was quick to respond to all of our questions. We were tight on our budget, but she still made us feel like we were VIPs and went above and beyond what we expected.
The rest of the staff were excellent as well. Just walking through the hotel lobby, the receptionists would shout out "good luck!" because they knew I was the groom. Everyone who worked there showed that same level of kindness and attentiveness.
The accommodations were fantastic. The rooms were all clean and pleasant, and the ballroom was everything we had hoped for.
I strongly recommend the Ashworth for your future events.
Ashworth by the Sea was such an amazing venue and reception area for my wedding. The restaurants were beautiful next door and the food was delicious. The caterer for Ashworth by the Sea was an angel for me. She helped me plan everything and made sure it all came together for the day off. They treated myself,my family, and my friends with kindness and professionalism. I would highly recommend having your wedding here since it is right off the ocean. Great place for the summer time vacation as well. Thank you for making my day very special!
We had our reception at the Ashworth and it was fabulous! Cheri the wedding coordinator was really nice and helpful. She answered all of my questions very quickly -and I emailed her a lot of them -in the weeks leading up to the wedding. The food was great, and the service was too. The ballroom is absolutely beautiful, and everything was just so great. I would not have changed anything!
I already wrote another review about the ashworth on a different website - but I guess I just couldn't stop at that! They did an amazing job! They set up the room perfectly, the service was great and they really helped put me and my husband at ease. Thank you Cheri and everyone else for all of your help with setting up the wedding!
We loved having our wedding at the Ashworth by the Sea. All the staff were very professional and very helpful. The venue was perfect for the beach wedding and everything turned out great. The food was fabulous and the service was outstanding. We had the best time and the wedding planner, Cheri, had everything under control. She was on top of things and we did not miss a beat with her help and experience. She was a pleasure to work with and I enjoyed all they had to offer us. Audrey Needham
Jim & I chose to get married at The Ashworth By The Sea in March because we wanted a small wedding & reception surrounded by 50 of our immediate family and friends. We loved the idea of having everything under one roof; our friends stayed over & made our wedding a winter get away weekend. Friends and family even took advantage of our great location, by exploring Hampton Beach. The Rose Room provided ample space for our intimate ceremony and reception complete with a dance floor. The staff and service at The Ashworth By The Sea are superb! The entire experience, from our overnight stay, the night before the wedding, getting ready in our separate rooms and hospitality for our guests and their rooms provided a great start to The Best Wedding Weekend! We got to relax at the bar and dance in the lounge Friday night before as well as after the wedding reception ended on Saturday, closing the bar. The Rose Room is pretty with sunny windows, the bartenders, chefs, servers and valet are very professional. I cannot thank the Director of Catering, Eileen, enough for all her assistance all the way to the end of our wedding day. We were prepared for a winter wedding, but instead had a lovely 50 degree day, which allowed Jim & me to have photos taken on Hampton Beach with some snow on the sand. Many of us are talking about having a reunion at The Ashworth By The Sea in 2015.
Thank you for choosing to have your wedding here at The Ashworth and for taking the time to write a review of your experience for WeddingWire. We're thrilled to hear that you and Jim had an outstanding experience and that we've earned your recommendation to fellow brides. We will be sure to pass your compliments along to Eileen and we look forward to hosting the reunion next year!

This venue is absolutely beautiful. The food is amazing. The views from the balcony for pictures are overlooking the ocean. They really work with you to make any vision you have come true. However there was one really large damper on my day. If you fall in love with this venue like I did make sure you try to work with anyone besides Cheri H. She was rude, unprofession and added nothing but stress to my day. However there are other people you can work with that I met that were amazing.
