MWP - Midweek Wedding Package requires 50 guests at wedding breakfast and 25 overnight.
Ultimate Wedding Package - includes 6 rooms within the package and needs 100 guests at the wedding breakfast to achieve an 85% rebate on exclusive hire of the ground floor function rooms.



There are 25 en-suites including some 'apartment' style en-suites (two with kitchen/ dining areas, allowing anyone with dietary needs to self-cater outside the regular meals at the Castle).

Sleep fifty £75/ PPPN (per person per night) B&B guests at two guests per room in our 25 en-suites.

Add extras in the family rooms above the first two at £50 PPPN - regardless of age (children in cots are free).

You will run out of double en-suites if you allocate any double rooms to single occupancy guests. This is not advised as single occupancy of any double en-suite means you may struggle to spread your 50 X £75 guests evenly over the available en-suites.

Though you're unlikely to use all rooms to full capacity, you can in theory get 81 guests in the en-suites with a further 21 in the non en-suite hostel standard 'Nurses Block'.

Extras above first two £75 guests in family rooms are £50.00 B&B per person (inc children), subject to you achieving the minimum B&B usage quota on your Wedding Package.


Total overnight B&B capacity is therefore 100 guests.

See our suggested split of your £75's and £50's in the Rooms Table here  

It's a good idea to reserve family rooms to your family guests so they know which room to ask for and what they will be paying.


1)   Our Excel Spreadsheet 'Special Wedding Package room use monitor' (SRUM) created for each individual wedding will add £50/guest > 50 to the total sum due.

So if more than 50 guests are staying, the room use spreadsheet auto-sums the total amount due for numbers > 50, multiplied by £50 / head.

However if using more than 25 en-suites the minimum cost of each en-suite remains £150 based on two sharing.

2)    Any amount received that is less than the above automatically calculated amount due is payable by the Bride as 'top up'.

Example: If 55 guests stayed in 25 en-suites, this would be £3,750 for the first 50, and £250 for the 5 over 50, making £4,000. Any shortfall is then paid by Bride and Groom.

Technically a shortfall should not occur except where guests have been under-charged, subsidised, or allowed to pay less than the Wedding Package B&B tariff for whatever reason.

For Staff - How to record top-ups in the event of

Wedding not achieving full occupancy of 50 X £75

______________________________________


1)   All top ups = 'venue hire' on Events Monitor. Enter top-ups in Nicolini Room column.

2)   If there are > 50 guests, add to the Special Wedding Package room use monitor spreadsheet (SRUM) so formula adds £50 PPPN for each extra guest above 50, for the total due. (If using >25 rooms, then it's £150 per extra en-suite used).

3)   If there are children in rooms, and if B&G anticipate overall occupancy will not reach 50 (or applicable minimum usage quota on their Wedding Package), then older / teenage children may be increased to £75 PPPN by individual arrangement between Couples and Guests. This needs agreeing at the 'room reserve' stage as it entails us raising the rate for extras in family rooms.  

4) Alternatively B&G can pay a top up to the accommodation account of the wedding guest to bring the guests up to £75 PPPN rate. It is simplest to keep all extras in family rooms @ £50 PPPN - and couple pay a top-up as 'venue hire', to cover any accommodation use shortfall.

5) Reception please do not include non-chargeable babies in cots in 'number of guests' column in SRUM as the spreadsheet auto-sums £50 per extra guest. Put '+ Baby' in main text by occupant name instead.
