The tennis courts (now Felixstowe Tennis Club) and beach area have since been sold and the hotel has been developed into exclusive apartments.

As this is also a privately owned residential venue we feel these would not be appropriate. It is also a Grade 11 Listed building, so we are only allowing battery operated candles.
There will be on the day of the wedding a designated parking space for the registrar and happy couple. There will be space for the wedding car and taxis to drop off and collect. All wedding guests will need to park in the public carpark situated in Ranelagh Road (a 5 minute walk away) and if the evening function is taking place at the Tennis Club guests are welcome to park there for the duration of the wedding. Full information will be given to the couple upon booking so they can pass this information to their guests.
Yes of course, we feel children are a big part of many weddings. We will provide complimentary squash throughout the day for your little guests, along with a designated play area in the conservatory if you are having your wedding breakfast in the grand dining hall.
Palm Court and the Grand Dining Hall can hold up to 200 guests, according to fire regulations. The tennis club can hold up to 150 guests if the outside area is being used.
