Stay away!! We had our wedding here at Alden Castle in the summer of 2017, for about 130 guests. Long story short the air conditioning broke the day of our wedding and the staff did not tell us, lied to our guests about it, and did nothing to make guests comfortable or fix the situation. Bartenders were rude to our guests (I don't blame them as they were hot as hell and shouldn't have had to work in those conditions). All of our guests were very uncomfortable and we had people leave early.

I thought how dissapointed/mad/upset we were about the whole thing would fade with time, but it hasn't. Looking back at our wedding photos and seeing people clearly sweating makes us upset to this day and always will. Still feel embarrassed for all of our guests, almost all traveled very far to be there.

Would not recommend this venue or any other Longwood Venues location. Stay away unless you are going to spend $100,000 (then maybe they won't let something like that happen).

A real shame because the physical space is beautiful, and food was great as well. Head chef very friendly too.

I cannot begin to say enough great things about Alden Castle. From the moment my husband and I booked well over two years ago until our wedding this past weekend, Alden Castle has been amazing.

We originally viewed Alden Castle first and immediately fell in love. The vintage ballroom is stunning and the neutral colors go with everything. Michelle told us everything we needed to know on this initial visit and even encouraged us to look at our venues so that we were confident. A quick tour at venues around Boston told us that Alden Castle was hands down one of the best.

After our wedding, I can honestly say that booking Alden Castle was one of the best decisions that we made. The staff was unbelievably helpful and grabbed anything that we could have possibly needed. Our bridal attendant even got my husband and I a tray of appetizers for us to enjoy after running around taking pictures...needless to say we were blown away from the start of our reception!

Alden Castle is 100% first class service. Our guests couldn't stop commenting how wonderful the wedding was, how amazing the venue was, and most importantly that the food was phenomenal. The food came out warm (which is surprisingly hard to do according to our guests) and tasted like restaurant quality.

Do yourself a favor and check out Alden Castle. I promise you that you won't regret it!
