Situated in the bustling downtown area of New Hamburg, Ontario, Puddicombe House is a nineteeth century mansion that is perfectly suited for weddings and other special occasions. Step deep into Ontario history as you pass through the doors leading to Puddicombe House. Built in 1868, in the elegant Italianate architectural style, it first served as the home of Samuel Merner, a prominent New Hamburg businessman and politician. Puddicombe House has been fully restored and equipped with modern furnishings while maintaining the original charm and wonder of the original historical house. In addition to the ceremony and reception space, the main building contains a restaurant, spa, and salon, offering couples, as well as their guests an array of amenities.

Family and friends can also take advantage of the cozy accommodation options offered by their small inn on-site. Get-ready suites are available for engaged couples to relax and rejuvenate within before their festivities begin. Ease-of-access is also a priority for this mansion-style wedding venue, with ample parking spaces on offer as well as full wheelchair-accessibility.

Very Helpful

Our wedding ceremony and reception went very smoothly at Puddicombe House. Alaya was extremely helpful with planning the day for us and making suggestions when we were undecided or unsure about anything. Nick was also very helpful during the day of to ensure everything was running smoothly. All of our guests enjoyed themselves and are still raving about how much fun they had.

Dream Wedding at a Dream Venue

There are simply no words to describe how above and beyond Puddicombe House goes in everything that they do.

We had our wedding here on Saturday August 8th, and this was a dream wedding at a dream venue come true. Nick and his family are absolutely amazing owners of this inn as well as the hall, they are genuinely good people that want to help in every way they can.

The food, the stay, the hair & make-up at the salon, the beautiful services of the hall, the amazing staff, the efficiency and timeliness, the location, we couldn't possibly explain how great Puddicombe House truly is, you need to experience it.

Whether you're coming just for dinner, a weekend stay, a wedding event, a conference or anything else, this is truly an amazing inn in a quaint little town.

Thank you so much Nick, Amber, Lyle, and Karen, you host the most fantastic events and you make people feel endlessly special, heard, and accommodated.

Above and beyond our expectations

We got married here in May, and I can not say enough good things about this place. Nick (the manager/owner) is absolutely amazing, he went above and beyond to make our day perfect. Not only is he extremely down to earth, he has a calming vibe that, as a bride with hundreds of things on my mind, was invaluable. I was never stressed about anything related to the hall knowing that Nick would handle it. And he did, far better than I ever could have hoped. The staff and service are exemplary and the food was absolutely amazing. I have never received as many compliments as we did for our wedding, people were raving about how awesome the food, hall, staff and service were :) As I said, I could continue listing all the amazing ways that Puddicombe went above and beyond but take my word, you will not regret this venue.

Beautiful wedding

I can’t say enough about how wonderful the staff was at Puddicombe House for our wedding. From start to finish Nick was amazing at walking me through everything. The day went off so smoothly! The venue itself is so stunning, guests are still complementing about it. The food is amazing, service top notch. And the best part you can book a room in the bed and breakfast and be close by.

We were very well taken care of at Puddicombe House! Guests at our daughter's wedding reception raved about the excellent food and beautiful environment. Nick has great attention to detail and we have nothing negative to say about our experience. Leading up to the wedding, he was always very prompt in returning my emails. One thing in particular I noticed was that during the event Nick checked in with us a number of times to ask if we had any concerns, and he even helped load up our vehicles at the end of the night. Bravo Puddicombe!!

Amazing from start to finish

We ended up having to change our date 3 times and Nick and Alaya were amazing and accommodating. They really made our day special and the food was beyond delicious. All of our guests were so happy with the meal and several commented it was the best wedding food they had ever had. The venue is beautiful and although we couldn’t get married in the park the use of their tent outside was perfect.

The Best Place on Earth

I cannot recommend Puddicombe House enough! We booked our wedding for 2020 and postponed to 2021. Nick and the team at Puddicombe were nothing but helpful, accommodating, and amazing every step of the way! Nothing was ever too much trouble and they were patient and kind while I re-planned our day. On top of that, the venue is stunning, the food is delicious, and the staff is attentive, professional, and helpful! We had our entire wedding party stay onsite the night of the wedding and it was so nice to have that convenience! There is an Airbnb that sleeps 8, plus 6 rooms and 2 cottages, so it was perfect! I can't recommend Puddicombe enough to anyone who is looking for a wedding venue, great meal, or a night/weekend away! Book it now!!!

Perfect Wedding Venue

Puddicombe House is a fantastic wedding venue. The atmosphere and food were perfect for our wedding and tied in with all of the other elements we planned. We love that this location is family owned; you can see the team effort in every interaction with Puddicombe. We have endless good things to say about the venue, spa and restaurant, and would book again for future events.
