General 

Healing Manor Hotel is run and operated by The Lincolnshire Kitchen Limited (the Hotel or we or us).  You can find everything you need to know about us and our services on our website www.healingmanorhotel.co.uk/

The hotel will not be liable for any failure or delay in providing facilities, service, food and beverages as a result of events outside its control (including and not limited to seasonality, fire, storm, explosion, flood, act of God, epidemic or pandemic, war, action of Government agency, shortage of materials or goods, strike or lockout).

The hotel has an on-going refurbishment and development programme and reserves the right to change the appearance of certain areas from time to time. The hotel reserves the right to change the internal or external appearance.

 

Access to and the use of Function Room

A full day ‘Room Hire’ of the Barn and/or Cadogan suite, means that guests can access your chosen room from 9am on the morning of the event and departure by midnight, unless otherwise agreed in writing.

Please note that access to your chosen function room the day before, or prior to 9am cannot be guaranteed. In circumstances when the room is available and isn’t booked out the day before, your dedicated Events Coordinator will be on hand to liaise with the client (you) and your suppliers to arrange early access. Please note that this is not guaranteed, due to the busy nature of Healing Manor Hotel and our function rooms receiving requests for last minute bookings. If you do require guaranteed access on the day before your wedding, a £1800 room hire charge is required, to cover loss of business the day before your wedding. This will allow access from 9am the day before your wedding and up until midnight on the day of your celebrations.

If any suppliers need to deliver items before your wedding day or collect items after the event, prior arrangement would be required through Healing Manor Hotel’s Event Co-ordinator.

Where possible, the Venue will assist in the storage of equipment etc, but such items always remain the responsibility of you. Such articles must be removed from the Hotel by no later than 7am of the day following the event, unless otherwise agreed. Please note that if you are carrying out your own décor and styling, that all items must be removed by 7am the following day.

 

Damages and debris 

You are responsible for any damage caused to the hotel or any of its fixtures and fittings, utensils or equipment, internal and external by any act, default or neglect by you, your sub-contractor or any guest. The cost of making good or remedying any such damage must be reimbursed on demand to the hotel. This contract binds that any damages will be charged to the client, up to 48 hours after your event.

Please note that no pins, screws, tack or tape is to be used on walls or surfaces in functions rooms, unless on the wooden slats in the Barn. Any such items, must be removed by the client immediately and you will be responsible for any damage caused by such items.

Any debris left from props, styling, flowers, hay bales, marquees etc, must be removed and cleaned by 9am the following morning. We highly recommend that you work with a recommended supplier to assist in the décor of your wedding. If you are decorating your own wedding, please note that Healing Manor Hotel cannot be responsible for any injury or damages. Charges may be incurred if all items are not removed, or if a cost is implemented on the business to clear up any remaining messes.

 

Suppliers

Healing Manor Hotel has an ever-growing list of highly recommended wedding and events suppliers, to help with the planning of your special day. We ask that you provide a full list of any suppliers attending your wedding, along with their contact details and estimated time of arrival/departure.

All suppliers must supply relevant insurance and/or risk assessments prior to attending site.

Suppliers must provide their estimated arrival time at the venue and any special requirements at least 21 days before your wedding day or event. Early access from 12.30am can be granted in special circumstances to external suppliers, however this must be confirmed in writing with your Wedding and Events Coordinator.

 

Accommodation and use of the Hotel

Healing Manor Hotel boasts 37-bedrooms, nestled between the main Manor House, Courtyard and Boathouse. For couples booking a wedding with a minimum of 80 full paying daytime guests, Healing Manor Hotel will provide a junior suite complimentary, to the couple, unless otherwise stated in your chosen package.

Please note that Healing Manor Hotel cannot guarantee private use of the site, due to the public house The Pig & Whistle and restaurant The Portman. If you would like to enquire about exclusive use, please note that this starts at £27,000.

Healing Manor Hotel reserves the rights to reserve a maximum of three bedrooms for the client, including the bridal suite on the night of the wedding. To make a block booking of 5 or more bedrooms, a deposit for the total of each of those bedrooms is required upon booking. This sum will not be refundable or transferrable.

All other bedrooms are offered on a first come, first served basis and we highly advise that you encourage guests to book as soon as possible. A card guarantee is required upon booking for any bedrooms booked. A reduced function rate is offered to the client and their guests, for the night before, night of and night after the wedding celebrations. Please note that this rate may increase or decrease, dependant on outside factors, such as inflation or deflation.

We highly recommend that guests book their bedrooms directly with the hotel, to enjoy use of the discounted wedding rate. On the rare occasion that a cheaper rate is found, based on it matching the bed and breakfast function discounted rate, we please ask that guests contact the hotel directly, for a matched price. Occasions when this might occur, would be on a Sunday, or if a guest has a genius or reduced rate on an OTA.

If you wish to have breakfast the following morning of any event, please note that a table must be pre-booked. If you do not pre-book a table in advance, the Hotel cannot guarantee that one will be available.

Please note that if you wish to have breakfast as a group, please enquire with your wedding co-ordinator in relation to the hire of the Cadogan Suite. This is due to the restaurant only having a limited number of tables, which are only able to currently seat four people. If you are having breakfast as a group in the Cadogan Suite, this will only be available as a breakfast buffet and not on an ‘a la carte’ basis. Any dietary requirements must be provided in the final details meeting, at least four weeks prior to your wedding and this must be confirmed in writing. Guests who have not pre-booked a table for breakfast will be allocated a table if and when one becomes available.

Whilst we understand that you might like to enjoy use of the onsite facilities on the night before your wedding and on the morning of your wedding, if you do require a suite the night before, or to get ready in the morning, Healing Manor Hotel cannot guarantee use of 306 – ‘The Boathouse Suite’. Whilst we guarantee wedding exclusivity on the day of your wedding, we prioritise ensuring that the couple enjoying their wedding get to enjoy use of 306 on the night of their wedding, to make bookings fair. Please note that Healing Manor Hotel regularly hosts a wedding on a Friday and on a Saturday, meaning Friday’s wedding would have first refusal of 306 on the Friday and Saturday’s wedding on the Saturday. Please speak to our Wedding and Events team for more details.

If up to 7 days before your wedding, a wedding isn’t booked on the day before or after your celebrations, our team will ensure that you are allocated to 306 if requested. 112 is our second beautiful suite and is perfect for all couples, with an adjoining standard room available to book too.

Please note that check-in for rooms is from 3pm and checkout is by 11am. Early check-in is from 1pm and late check-out is by 12pm. If you or any of your guests require the rooms outside of those hours, an additional night’s stay must be booked. Please note that an early check-in or late check-out cannot be guaranteed and are allocated on a first come first served basis.

Please note that an additional charge of £35 may be charged for any early check-ins and/or late check-outs for the hours noted above. Early check-ins and late check-outs will be subject to availability. For the avoidance of doubt, early check-ins and late check-outs will not and cannot be guaranteed in any circumstance.

Rooms are provided based on a maximum room occupancy, which will be provided to your guests when booking their room. You and/or your guests must not exceed maximum room occupancy. The hotel may charge an additional charge in respect of rooms that exceed maximum room occupancy and may conduct checks on occupancy and compliance with these terms.

 

Civil Ceremonies

Please note that in the case of the same room being used for both ceremony and banquet, a period of 1 hour will be required to turn the room around. We recommend any couple wishing to hold your civil ceremony at the hotel to contact the local Registrar to ensure their availability in performing the ceremony. It is your responsibility to ensure that you book and pay for the registrar and the hotel is not liable for any cancellations or postponements due to your chosen registrar not being available. Guests will be able to enjoy your post ceremony ‘arrival drinks’ package, or enjoy drinks from the bar, whilst our team ensure that your room is perfect for your wedding reception.

 

Food and drink

All food and beverages will be supplied by Healing Manor Hotel, unless otherwise agreed in writing. Please see the section “Supply Of Food and Alcoholic Beverages” below for further information. Please note that additional charges may be incurred.

We recommend that if you would like your guests to enjoy drinks before the ceremony in the Pig & Whistle, that you advise your Wedding and Events Coordinator to ensure that a space has been booked. We do ask that after the ceremony guests utilise the bar in your chosen function room, either the Barn or Cadogan, as the Pig and Whistle is table service only and often becomes fully booked. If you would like to include The Pig & Whistle or Portman restaurant, or connecting terraces within your day, we recommend speaking to your Wedding and Events Coordinator.

For your wedding breakfast, please allow a minimum of 2.5 hours for service of the wedding meal.

All menu choices must be submitted 28 days before your wedding day. Any changes after this time may result in an additional administration charge.

 

Menu Tasting

We offer set dates for wedding tastings throughout the year and spaces are subject to availability. Please note that you are required to have selected your provisional menu at the time of booking your wedding menu tasting. Ingredients are subject to change, due to the seasonality of some ingredients and we do ask you to bear this in mind at the time of booking a tasting.
