My fiancé and I have been recently searching around for wedding venues and one that has always taken our fancy is The Moat House at Acton Trussell as we have had fantastic reviews from there. I recently had a look around and have also been to a wedding which has been held there and I truly think it is a stunning venue who offers fantastic quality service at brilliant prices.
The address is as follows;

Lower Penkridge Road
Ok so the first thing I should tell you is that the location is absolutely stunning. Acton Trussell is a small little country village which is just located away from Stafford but within easy distance. The M6 is not too far away and it really is easy to find but is also hid away if you didnt know it was there which is lovely. When you get there you will smell the numerous farms around the area and you are deep in the countryside which I personally love.
The hotel is by a canal where several barges can always be seen and it is all very picturesque with loads of ducks and swans wondering around which is pretty. They also have very sweet gardens around and the lake is huge.
Ok so the actual hotel is very welcoming when you walk inside with its neutral décor and very friendly staff. They have comfortable seats in the waiting area and because the place is so huge you do not really want to go wondering around until you know where you are going. So receptionists are very friendly and they have around 40 rooms in this hotel so quite a few.
Walking around the hotel you get to see how nice it is. They have several rooms including one which opens up onto its very own private patio. There are rooms leading over to the front gardens and rooms that are hidden away from anywhere so no prying eyes can see you.
With respect to weddings which is what we were looking for they have loads of rooms. There was a massive room which could probably seat over 100 people. Then you walk into a completely different part of the hotel to go up some stairs and find yourself in a very characteristic room which seems like a converted barn to me.
Then there is a huge conservatory which is stunning and looks directly over onto the canal which is very lovely. Each room has character and seems completely different to the others.
The actual Hotel rooms are stunning also. They are of a reasonable size and contain a very comfortable bed, seating area and I should mention the stunning views you get because if the area the Hotel is in. The shower was really nice and boiling hot which I love and I had a very pleasant stay there.
The food is my final thing to talk about because it is yummy. The wedding package food is cooked to perfection which is what you expect really and then breakfast was delicious with lots of choice for continental or English and again cooked to perfection. Drinks are served at the numerous bars around the hotel and they are well stocked so a good selection is available.
I suppose I should tell you about the prices. Well for a room they range from £70 to £100 per night which is not that bad considering you get breakfast the next morning. The wedding packages I will not go into as it is different for everyone but they are very competitively priced which is nice.
All in all I think this is a superb hotel with a great location and a lot to offer. I am sure I didnt explore everything during my stay but it is a prime spot that I am thinking about for my wedding so they must have done a good job.
Well worth a stay if you are in the area.
Thanks for reading.
