“Our line dance club has booked The Marsham Court Hotel for 5 years now, as it is just perfect for our needs! The Terrace Ballroom has a beautiful dance floor and we cannot fault the lovely rooms. The food gets better every year, and as for the staff they are just brilliant, so friendly and accommodating and nothing is too much trouble. We look forward to our weekend away and we can’t wait to go back again the following year! We have stayed in other hotels but nothing comes close to The Marsham Court Hotel!”
