QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

 

WHEN CAN I ARRIVE AND WHEN DOES MY PARTY END?

 

We sometimes have a wedding the day before yours which is most likely in the peak summer wedding months. In this case we can check you in at 11am. If we do not have a booking the day before you are welcome to come earlier. Our experience is that the two main events governing your timetable are the time of the ceremony and the time your evening guests are arriving. You can usually specify the ceremony time and most evening guests arrive at 7.30pm.

 

It is best if your Schedule can have some flexibility so that your wedding breakfast is finished in time for you to be free to greet your evening guests. Our normal finishing time is midnight but that does not mean that we rush you to end your day .You have time to wind up the evening, call taxis and finish the last bar orders. If you want to party on we have a late license and we charge £250 per hour after midnight to pay for staff overtime. 

 

WHAT ABOUT EVENING GUESTS?

 

Most couples want to invite evening guests. This is a very good way of inviting work colleagues to share and enjoy your wedding without having to sit through all the formal parts of the wedding. We do not make any charge for evening guests.  Evening guests can be catered for quite simply with some snacks such as bread and a selection of cheeses with tea and coffee. 

 

CAN WE HAVE CONFETTI?

 

You can use confetti indoors or outdoors (except for the metallic shapes which are impossible to vacuum and explosive confetti bombs which cover such a wide area).

Anstey Hall was a lovely old property. The staff were excellent and you are made to feel very welcome making our stay comfortable, it felt like we were in someone's home. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the honesty bar is a nice touch. We would definitely stay again.
Most friendly, Fantastic views of the gardens, so helpful. Room was amazing. Great breakfast. Can't wait to go back, proves you don't have to go far to have a feeling of being a million miles away.
Loved the building inside and out, and unexpected bonus of an upgrade which was lovely. Loved watching the wildlife from balcony in the evening & early morning, Staff very friendly & helpful. Great breakfast. Highly recommend this place.
The house is beautiful and you are able to walk around and let it feel like your own home. The girl that checked us in was lovely, really friendly and showed us around. I love the feel of the history of the house and the honesty bar is great!
This did not feel like staying in a hotel but as a guest in a beautiful stately home. On arrival I thought I had got it wrong as I walked into this beautiful charming home. The owner and his family were quite prominent and very relaxed making us feel relaxed also. Just a short drive from the centre of Cambridge, would most definitely stay here again.
The atmosphere of Anstey Hall makes it really stand out; incredibly friendly, welcoming, cosmopolitan, and quirky. The eccentric, eclectic and amazing mix of furniture, decoration, art (and people) complements both the building as well as the atmosphere perfectly. It was the second time I stayed there, but I shall be very happy to go back again.
Superb B&B in a beautiful setting. The staff were really friendly and helpful. We were in room 5, facing a field full of rabbits and could have watched them all day. Breakfast was excellent and plentiful, the honesty bar and billiard table were nice facilities. We thought this was great value for money and will return next year.
What a great place, with fantastic staff and of course a beautiful setting. It was so much like being at one's own country house. Well done, I will certainly stay there again.
Nice, comfortable bedrooms in a good location. Kind staff, stunning library with a picturesque garden view! It is a place of interest, which is historic Grade I building - the staff gave me a volume of information on the history of the manor. Overall, it was a very pleasant stay.
A fabulous place that is really special. It is not your usual bed and breakfast destination but a country house with an eclectic mix of décor and furniture. We booked what turned out to be a very comfortable room with four poster bed, everything you need and a lovely bathroom with roll top bath, shower etc. There was a lovely help yourself breakfast which had a very extensive selection to choose from.
The house was very quirky with lots of antiques and curios to look at, being bike owners we loved the old bike in the breakfast room !! The location was very quiet as was the house and it felt like we were just guests in the owners home rather than a hotel. Please don't expect a `waited on experience ` it is relaxed and non pretentious.
Wonderfully different. Great room and en suite was fantastic. Friendly staff and the location next to the Cambridge park and ride, as well as a couple of nice pubs and still in the countryside ticked all the boxes.
Enjoyed our conversations with the charming owner and daughter; and we did have a very nice room. There were also so many interesting oddities among the hall's furnishings to hold one's attention.
Breakfast was amazing, the bath was really cool and vintage, it was a peaceful area, the staff were helpful and friendly, lovely pub with nice food just around the corner, room was amazing, we really had an incredible time. I am from Denmark and wanted to have a cozy English experience in a Victorian style castle, and that's what I got.
