You couldn't ask for a better venue!
We selected the Historic Penn Wells Hotel as the venue for our wedding reception and we couldn’t have been happier for how it all turned put. The food was phenomenal, the atmosphere completely unique, the staff courteous and professional, plus, what better place to have a reception with alcohol than a hotel? Jackie, our primary contact walked us through everything start to finish and was exceptionally prompt and professional in all her dealings with us. As a previous reviewer also noted, we, too, were long distance planning our wedding, and Jackie was very flexible in working with our schedules so we could meet with her. She had great suggestions for local professionals to help with all the wedding details, DJ’s, florists, etc. Although we opted for our own DJ and cake baker, the Hotel was more than happy to work with them to make everything run smoothly. The Hotel itself was very affordable given that we had them do all the food (full dinner buffet), appetizers, and open bar; the staff also did all the setup and tear down. We had a good size dance floor as well. We ordered flowers from Sam’s Club for centerpieces, dropped them along with what we wanted for décor at the Hotel on Friday afternoon and the staff used it all to decorate the room to perfection. Along with the rental, you get a complimentary room for your wedding night which was fabulous. You also get your names on the local movie theatre’s marquee, which we were able to use to get some great wedding pictures with. We had a lot of family and friends travel in from out of state and they all loved the Hotel and the town of Wellsboro itself, which has a little to offer everyone and all of it is within walking distance of the Hotel. We had 130 guests in total and there was plenty of space without seeming cavernous. The compliments to the hotel, staff, service, and town have been non-stop since the wedding! Moreover, we owe that to the Penn Wells for helping us mark the start of our lives together with such a beautiful day from start to finish.

Fantastic Wedding Reception Venue
Penn Wells did a wonderful job with my wedding reception for an excellent price. They do not charge you to use their venue if you use their catering services - all you pay for is food, drinks and a small fee to have the dance floor set up. Jackie works with you to make sure everything is exactly the way you want it to be. When we were planning our wedding, my husband was living in Virginia and I was living in North Carolina. She was very accommodating with meeting us when we were in town and communicating via email and phone calls. There was plenty of space for guests to wait in the lobby before the reception and enjoy some appetizers. In the reception hall, the space easily held our 100 guests, as well as the dance floor, space for our jazz band, tables for the cake and gifts, and the bar. We met with Jackie just a few times before the wedding and had all the details ironed out before our wedding day. It was amazing just being able to show up to our wedding reception and not having to worry about a thing in terms of set up or other vendors dropping things off (cake, flowers). The building itself is beautiful and our photographer took some awesome pictures of us around the hotel. They will also put your name on the marquis down the street, which is amazing. If you're looking for a beautiful reception venue with staff that is amazing to work with, book Penn Wells.Sent on 11/09/2018
Side note - Jackie knows a woman who makes amazing wedding cakes for a very reasonable price, and she ended up making our wedding cake.
