Ladies Festival Weekends

Booking or planning a Masonic Ladies Festival Weekend in Bournemouth? We come highly recommended and offer weekends tailored to accommodate your specific requirements.

We pride ourselves on our ability to understand the exacting standards and traditions required, yet still retaining that personal individual approach.

The success of a masonic ladies function lies in its planning. To begin with we try to keep your point of contact at the hotel to just one person, we endeavour to be as flexible as possible in order to suit individual tastes and budgets. We can also offer packaged masonic weekends to make organising a ladies festival in Bournemouth simple and easy.

Our Banqueting Suite can cater comfortably for 140 guests, seated at round tables, providing a clear view with no obstructions of the top table.

A clear testament to our success and popularity are the many Masonic Lodges that return year after year to hold their Ladies Weekends at our hotel.
