Laura is amazing

The Castle Manor Inn is a gem! I am so thankful to Laura and her team for making our wedding day perfect. Laura is so open to any ideas for wedding day. You can utilize the space however you want. The food was amazing and reasonably priced. I would have never been able to have an Indian wedding ceremony anywhere else in Gloucester. Thank you!

Everything i could have asked for and more!

I have nothing but excellent things to say about Castle Manor Inn!!!! This was the absolute perfect fit for our wedding. We got married here this past September 2019.
I enjoyed working with Laura Baker and the other Castle Manor staff so much along the way. They make the planning process so painless, make you feel right at home, and are extremely dedicated to making sure that your wedding is everything you envisioned!
The venue is perfect, as the Castle Manor was once a large victorian home and has such a lovely rustic-elegance type charm that in my opinion provides the perfect ambiance for a wedding.
There are plenty of rooms on-site for your guests to stay over, beautiful grounds for photo-ops, cocktail hour, outdoor ceremony, etc, and there's a beautiful back deck area that has views of the river and is beautifully lit up at night, really creating a special environment for an evening reception.
This location also takes the worry out of having to find a caterer. They have a wonderful Chef and waitstaff. All the guests I spoke to said their meals were absolutely delicious.
All of the Castle Manor staff were extremely flexible and accommodating with all of our requests. They truly are committed to making sure that your wedding turns out to be everything you dreamed it would be. I cannot thank them enough for everything!

My husband, Jamie, and I were married at the Castle Manor Inn 2 weeks ago, after booking the venue in August 2017. Our goal was to create a relaxed, rustic, and classy wedding weekend, where the majority of our 115 guests could stay on site. I have to say, all of my expectations were completely surpassed every step of the way. Owners Laura and her husband, Tom, were fantastic and flexible with anything we wanted throughout the planning process and the weekend. They were warm and welcoming to every single guest, whether they were staying overnight or not, and we are still getting texts and calls about how much fun our guests had, and how they loved the Inn and service overall. Laura was constantly available for whatever we needed, but also discreet, and she anticipated many of our needs before we even realized we had them. She is very knowledgeable and skilled with planning, and organized with every aspect. After 9 months of planning, I was ready to let someone else take some of the reigns with making the decoration decisions, and she did a wonderful job creating an intimate, rustic, and classy setup. Our guests as a whole are individuals who like to let loose and have some fun, and they were accommodating with keeping the SeaGlass bar open and ready to accept guests who wanted to keep the party going. As a 4th year medical student, I was looking for very specific qualities in a venue, with a pretty tight budget, and this all was at a very reasonable cost.

My husband and I couldn't be happier with how our wedding weekend turned out, and would not hesitate for a second to recommend it to other engaged couples looking for a wedding venue.
