  • Fonmon Castle fantastic for wedding venue, surroundings fantastic, staff are brilliant, even keeps the kids occupied playing games with them, Shockingly the beverages are priced very reasonable, not over the top, One thing that they really should consider is changing the catering contractor, It was my sister's wedding and what a disappointment it was, which caused great upset to her and left us feeling some embarrassment, as to the massive amount charged, it was quiet disgraceful to what was served, And if they had a catering team that could give the service which will compliment the surrounding (which needs to be of a much higher standard than what it was) this place could be booming, The catering are letting this place down... But has to be said apart from that couldn't have asked for anything better, had a fantastic time in such a beautiful place, and just the place to make any bride feel a little more special, very beautiful location with out a doubt. Thank you Fonmon Castle and my sister really was a princess for the day.x And just to say was very very happy to see the welsh flag flying perfect.x
  • My Daughters wedding was held there recently and I have to say nobody was disappointed. What a fantastic day. The venue is spectacular. I would highly recommend it.
  • Great venue for a function. Very historic place in beautiful surroundings. Peaceful away days can be had here
  • Fantastic location and facilities to have a very special wedding day. The Castel and it's garden offers the opportunity for some amazing pictures. Everything is well organised and operates like a finely tuned Rolls Royce.
  • Just a fantastic venue and the best hospitality in the Vale of Glamorgan
