Nothing quite like bringing the family together

Nothing quite like bringing the family together

8 October 2018

There are many reasons to get together with the family and celebrate, from christening or naming ceremonies, big birthdays, special anniversaries, or even an engagement meal; there’s nothing quite like bringing the family together.

With today’s busy schedules we know it can be hard to find time to plan a family event. Sometimes hosting an event at home can mean you don’t enjoy the party as you should, as your time is spent organising, decorating the house, serving food and drink, and then clearing up.

So why not bring your celebrations to the Mercure Maidstone Great Danes Hotel?

Set in the heart of the Kent countryside the Mercure Maidstone Great Danes Hotel offers the perfect setting. Whether it’s a small intimate family meal with relatives visiting from abroad, a big 21st birthday bash, or golden wedding anniversary; the hotel has a choice of event rooms which can match the style and type of your celebration. Simply book the date, choose your food options, and leave everything to us. No worrying whether you have enough chairs, or wondering what to cook; you can relax and enjoy the celebrations too.

The hotel is located in 26 acres of grounds, enabling your guests to stretch their legs and enjoy the fresh air. If there are children enjoying the celebrations, they may want to let off steam outdoors. Overlooking the grounds, the newly refurbished contemporary Brasserie & Bar makes a great setting to get together before an event, or for smaller parties too.

With a choice of event menus, from formal dining, to more relaxed buffets, a hog roast, afternoon tea, or even a themed menu we can cater for your guests, and accommodate any food allergies or intolerances. Whatever food and drink options you’d like, we’ll make sure your event is one to remember.

We can also decorate the room to match the style and celebration of your event, just let us know the nature of the celebration, and we’ll do the rest.

Whatever your reason for getting together with the family, let the Mercure Maidstone Great Danes Hotel host your event. Located in Kent, just off the A20, with plenty of free parking, the hotel is easily accessible. For friends and family travelling from afar, there’s overnight accommodation available too.
