    The Ashworth by the Sea was a terrific venue for our wedding reception. They were helpful with the process from the beginning. The reception was absolutely perfect, a day we will never forget. The food selections and prices were the best of the venues that we evaluated. The food tasted great and the guests loved both the entrees and appetizers. We were very pleased with the overall execution of the event. We highly recommend that you consider the Ashworth when choosing venues.

    My husband and I just recently got married at the Ashworth and it was beyond amazing. Brielle helped organize everything and went above and beyond to make sure the day was special for us! The food was excellent and the entire staff was extremely friendly and helpful! Thank you so much for giving us the perfect day!

    Brielle was absolutely amazing!!! She made the day absolutely incredible and the reception hall was recently redone and is GORGEOUS! Every single staff member at the Ashworth by the Sea Hotel was so wonderful and was there to help me on my big day. I would recommend this vendor to anyone for the highest quality service a bride could ask for!

    I wanted to take a moment to recognize and thank Ashworth for a wonderful wedding weekend. I was married at Ashworth on July 2, 2017. We made a whole weekend of it at Ashworth, rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding, morning buffet day of wedding, and post wedding brunch. This would have not been possible without the help and guidance of Brielle. She is a gem! She was so amazingly patient with my many, many emails/questions and also equally patient with my family who had a vision for the ballroom on my wedding day. She helped guide me through the whole process, from start to finish. During the wedding weekend, she was a calming and supportive resource to me and family. Ashworth is lucky to have such an amazing employee, who really helped to shape the success of my wedding weekend. When I was looking for a wedding venue, I did look for positive reviews of a supportive coordinator, great communication, and an overall great experience. Brielle offered all those qualities and more. My husband and I can’t thank Brielle enough! We both really enjoyed working with her and we highly recommend having your wedding at Ashworth (and working with Brielle!) It is apparent heart and passion drive her work,(that is apparent in all our interactions with her) which supports her being successful in working with brides/grooms who are feeling overwhelmed and scatterbrained. Brielle was our calming force our wedding weekend and we are very thankful to her! Thank you again to Ashworth, and especially to Brielle.

    I cannot say enough good things about the Ashworth by the Sea! We had our reception at the Ashworth back in March and everything was perfect- the food, the staff, the attention to detail, the rooms, all of it! Brielle is absolutely amazing. She took care of everything and paid attention to what my husband and I really wanted. She was very responsible, kind, and dedicated to making our day as special as could be. In addition, the bar staff, manager, catering manager, and front desk staff were equally as wonderful and accommodating. All of our guests commented on how wonderful the venue was and that meant so much to us that they felt well taken care of during our event. - N Sylvia

    This was the perfect spot for our wedding! I have nothing but good things to say about the venue, the staff, and the wedding planner/coordinator. I would highly recommend this venue for someone who wants almost everything taken care of in one place. The absolute perfect most wonderful day of my life!

    Brielle and staff during the reception were on point. They did a really great job with food and making sure everyone was happy. Brielle was my mainpoint of contact through the planning process. She was always prompt, professional, friendly and always willing to answer questions. I would highly recommend Brielle and the folks at Ashworth by the sea for a wedding venue not only for the exceptional service but also the value and flexibility.

    Brielle at the Ashworth was great! She helped fix some errors on the menu that were my fault and was really responsive. The hotel room we got was FABULOUS and the room that our function was on came out beyond gorgeous! Can't say enough good things. Really the perfect spot to spend the biggest day of your life!

    My husband and I got married at Ashworth by The Sea this past Saturday and could not have been happier with our experience there! Everything went smoothly from the planning process to the day itself! We planned our wedding from abroad, and for this reason it was very important to me to have it at a place where most details would be taken care of. I was very impressed with the wedding coordinator when I met her last year at the Ashworth and felt assured by her that I would have a worry-free planning experience. A few months later, she received a promotion and I panicked because that meant I could no longer work with her. I had no need to worry however, because her replacement, Brielle, was fantastic as well! She was attentive, responsive and helpful throughout the planning process, and during our wedding weekend! Most importantly, she kept me calm and helped make sure my vision for our wedding came true! When it came time for the actual wedding, we were incredibly happy with how everything turned out! The staff at the Ashworth was helpful, friendly, and did a BEAUTIFUL job with our wedding! Our guests were happy and so were we! I would highly recommend this venue!

    We could not have picked a better venue. From searching different places when we came across the Ashworth I knew it was the one! The Ballroom where we held our reception was such a beautiful space, and for the price you couldn't say no.
    We had the opportunity to work with a couple people thru the hotel mainly side by side with Brielle who was amazing! She worked with us every step of the way and made sure everything was perfect for our special day. My husband and I personally want to thank each and everyone of the Ashworth staff for making our day everything we ever wanted our fairytale if you would :) We highly recommend if you are looking for a place with everything you need for your wedding day the Ashworth is definatly worth checking out!

    i cannot say enough good about the staff at ashworth by the sea! i got married there on september 3, 2016 with a rehearsal dinner on the 2nd and i can't imagine having my rehearsal/wedding reception anywhere else! everyone from brielle to chris to rita to eileen to the front desk staff, restaurant staff and the valet staff was beyond helpful, friendly, responsive, funny and overall phenomenal! there wasn't one single hiccup, stressful moment or moment when i worried something wasn't going to be done the way i envisioned it; brielle saw my vision and made it better! she is a genius!

    i would not hesitate to recommend ashworth by the sea to anyone, whether it be for a weekend getaway, wedding reception, dinner, breakfast, you name it! every one of our guests raved about pretty much everything. i wish i had another event to plan so i could plan it there!

    thank you to brielle and everyone else who helped make our weekend magical!

    We got married this past Saturday. Brielle Olberg was our coordinator and she was very attentive to our needs. She went the extra mile being creative with the extra touches that made the ballroom look spectacular, thank you Brielle!! Our guests traveled from Maine, Massachusetts, Florida, California and Italy and everyone raved about this wedding venue. Compliments were abundant about the food from the variety of hors d'oeuvres to many dinner choices on the buffet. This place was recommended to us by a friend and we are so glad we chose it!!

    The Ashworth By The Sea hotel/function hall and our Wedding Coordinator Brielle Olberg were both absolutely amazing! Our Wedding Day and was beautiful, romantic and perfect in everyway. Brielle was sweet, inspiring, helpful, experienced, communicative, supportive and creative as well as flexible and accommodating. She is the BEST!!! She stepped into this position months before our wedding day and rose to the occasion. She took charge and made me feel at ease, even better than expected. Our Chef Joe Primavera was also incredible, talented and generous as the food was delicious! We have received so many great compliments on our wedding day, meal, atmosphere, services and accommodations. Great staff here! Luckily, we had gorgeous weather and was able to have our ceremony right on the rooftop overlooking the beach and ocean view. Our guests especially loved the cocktail hour up there as we went on to the beach for photographs. I strongly recommend this venue for weddings and/or vacation stays. We also enjoyed our bridal suite for a 2night stay. Every last detail was taken care of and we had no worries, issues or concerns. Thank you so much!!! Sincerely, Pamela & Andrew Distefano

    The Ashworth in Hampton would probably be the last place you would envision getting married in the middle of the winter, but we are SO GLAD we chose to have our wedding there! We had 145 guests and there was plenty of space for many more. The event coordinator Melissa was very prompt with responses and extremely helpful! Our guests are still raving about how lovely the wedding was and the food was delicious! Their flexibility in the price because of being offseason helped us have our dream wedding. We loved loved loved it there!

    Most people will say that wedding planning can be stressful- not the case when working with Melissa from the Ashworth. She was AMAZING. I really cannot say enough good things about her. She was in constant contact us- responding to emails on her days off and reaching out to us if she had an idea or a suggestion that we may like. She helped us with finding local (AMAZING) vendors to help us with flowers and hair. She was so organized, professional, helpful, and positive. She went above and beyond from our tasting, to our rehearsal, and finally the big day! It helped that the venue was beautifully decorated, accommodating, and convenient- we were able to have my Bachlorette party, rehearsal dinner, wedding, and after party all in one location, which is very helpful and safe for all of our guests. Melissa greeted me at each event and made sure everything was truly perfect! The most memorable day of our lives!

    Melissa was wonderful to deal with, she was always available when I needed something. Melissa and all of The Ashworth staff went above and beyond to take care of my husband and I, and all of our guests. I am still getting compliments on the location and the service. The food was amazing as well , my guests couldn't get enough. We had a buffet and from what everyone's telling me most were going up for seconds and thirds. The pricing was very reasonable and all the service was off the charts. I want to plan another event just to have it at The Ashworth. We are planning on spending every Anniversary there. I'm going to miss my daily emails with Melissa she is such a sweetheart and is fabulous at what she does.

    Melissa and her team are amazing! Melissa is definitely the biggest help a bride can ask for. It didn't matter what obstacle came her way (and trust me with my wedding there were plenty!) she was cool, calm, collected and got it all fixed! If I could work with her again in some capacity I would be ecstatic.

    I am 100%+ satisfied with the entire wedding process from the beginning with the booking to the end the actual event. Melissa was very accommodating and very professional and always had my best interest in mind. She really went out of her way to make sure the wedding was a complete success. I am so thankful we chose the Ashworth to host our wedding. The staff was awesome too, from the wait staff, to the bartender to the chef that manned the omelet table. And even further the front desk and the valet. I really can go on and on about how great the support was. We are planning to come back for our one year anniversary next year and hope to make it an annual event. Thank you for making our day extremely memorable!

    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!

    I had my rehearsal dinner, wedding reception, and morning after brunch all at the Ashworth. Everything was great! They were very flexible to suit my needs, even with last minute changes, and were always available to help. The staff was patient when I wanted to rearrange the reception hall numerous times to get all of my guests to fit in a way that I was pleased with and they really took the stress away when it came to planning. Melissa was amazing and figured out solutions to all of the concerns that I had, even when they were related to my ceremony, which she wasn't involved with at all. She sought out answers for all of my questions, and if she didn't have the answer, she would direct me towards someone who did. I never waited for more than 12 hours for a response to an email, and usually I would receive a response within a few hours. Everything was perfect!
