    Wonderful and beautiful venue!

    We had a great experience working with The Doctor's House team to plan our wedding. With multiple postponements throughout the pandemic, their team helped us through the re-scheduling process to ensure we had the best day in 2022.

    Wedding of the summer

    Look, i can tell you that in the beggining before covid hit all was just it should have been. However i look back and i understand the postion of the doctors house now. It wasnt the easiest at times but i wil tell you that the wedding was absolutely incredible. From the beautiful day, the beautiful venue, the great food and the wait staff was awesome. I mean we may have had some differences but in the end the doctors house gave us exactly what we paid for....The wedding of our dreams. Because the night off went so well i am going to hold of from any negative comments because admist all the tensions it gave light to the most perfect ceremony. I Would strongly recommend the doctors house and thats If you are working with Elisa. She was amazing, She is the reason why i am writing what i am writing. I thank all the staff for their hard work and In the end Thank you Ben for having this beautiful venue.

    Could not be happier!

    We fell in love with The Doctor's House as soon as we visited the venue. Aside from it's unique and romantic charm it included great amenities and services for such a great price. This put a lot of ease in planning and coordinating for us, which is exactly what we wanted.

    I booked the venue in 2019 for a 2021 wedding and did have coordinators change on me 3 times. All 3 were wonderful to work with but the transition between them could have been a lot smoother. We ended up postponing our wedding for obvious reasons, but the process was very straight forward.

    Elisa, who ended up being my coordinator, was AMAZING to work with. She made event planning so easy and stress free for me and my team. Her dedication is truly unmatched - She had come in on her day off and never showed anything but smiles. She treated us like a family member and made us feel so comfortable leading up to the wedding, the day of and even days after the wedding.

    Perfect wedding day ❤️

    Five stars just doesn’t seem high enough! The Doctor’s House is an incredibly stunning venue with a very caring staff and beautiful gardens for wedding pictures. We were so lucky to have Zoe as our day-of coordinator, who went above and beyond to answer all of our questions during the planning process (even through the uncertainty of a global pandemic). We cannot thank the Doctor’s House enough for everything they did to make our wedding day so perfect and beautiful! Highly recommend to other couples.

    Gorgeous Venue and Friendly staffs!

    Cannot get over how gorgeous this venue is. Every inch of this place makes the most amazing photos. All our guests loved here and said that the food was superb! (Especially the late-night poutine bar despite everyone was already so full of the delicious courses.) Special thank you to Elisa, our in-house coordinator, who helped with everything that we asked for and more. The catering staff were super friendly and considerate. Thank you to all the staffs who made our day so special!
    Another special thanks to the chapel organist, Ida Puzzo, she was able to play the songs I selected without a doubt. Although I did not even get the chance to meet her in person, but I heard the music she played, it was absolutely beautiful. She is very talented.
    I am glad we chose the doctor’s house to be part of our forever unforgettable wedding day memories. Thank you!!!

    Just an okay experience

    I typically don’t write reviews and try to stay positive, however after having the last 2 months to think about this, I decided to write one. I had my wedding here in June and it was just okay. From the beginning, I did feel pressured to book a date on a rush from our first meeting. Our original coordinator was a bit slow at responding, but then we got Elisa. Elisa was great - she did respond at all hours of the day and got answers ASAP. She was the best thing regarding our experience at The Doctors House.
    We originally booked for Sept 2020, which got postponed due to COVID. My husband and I totally understood the difficult position vendors were in, however TDH was less than accommodating on selecting a new date. When I requested a new date change, they would not entertain a date although I was working out of the province and would not be in Ontario for the date they gave us. During many calls with the owners, my husband and I truly were as nice as we could be as we knew COVID wasn’t easy on TDH. Eventually, after the owner made me cry with extremely rude comments, he bluntly told me "there is no customer service here", and told me to sue him to get our money back and that I wouldn't win if I did sue him. I told him I didn't want to sue him and I wanted to work with him. He was extremely rude with multiple comments, and made a very stressful and non-joyful experience. It’s evident that they do not have strong customer service as we are just one-time customers.
    After picking a date (that we didn't even want), TDH were still frustrating to deal with. Everything we asked, it was either a strict "no", or extra fees. For example - your flower girl cannot throw petals or it's a $500 clean-up fee, extra fees if we wanted to bring in our own dessert, had to pay over $850+tax plug-in fees to use microphone (I believe this has gone up), had to use their DJ or else had to pay more, etc. Extra costs never stopped and restrictions were all around us.
    My sister got married last week at The Elora Mill (managed by Pearle Hospitality) and I cannot say enough great things about The Elora Mill/Pearle. Their customer service was completely out of this world. It was raining the morning of her wedding so they rented a last minute Airbnb castle to accommodate inside photos free of charge, they checked in on us constantly to see if we needed anything, they didn’t charge for any extra things that I would have had to at The Doctors House (for example – bringing in food, $300 to use the projector ((which was Platinum Entertainment which you had to use or were charged $750 to bring your own DJ)). At The Doctors House, when my husband and I walked in our cocktail hour, we noticed that there was 50+ people standing in line at the bar with only one bartender, which at The Elora Mill they had drinks lined up for people when they entered The Cocktail Hour, they walked around serving pre-made drinks and had 3 bartenders at all times. There were many details like this that made the wedding at The Elora Mill a wedding to remember forever, and make our wedding at TDH feel very below average.
    Overall, we are disappointed in choosing The Doctors House for our wedding. It’s upsetting that looking back on our day I don’t have a sense of joy with it. With spending tens of thousands of dollars with them, I expected more in terms of customer service. Elisa was great to work with, however the owners are very much just out there for the money and really don’t care about customer service as you’re most likely just a one-time customer. If you’re deciding between a venue with Pearle Hospitality or The Doctors House, highly recommend Pearle.

    Beautiful Wedding at The Doctor's House During Pandemic

    Despite 2020 being an extremely difficult year, with the COVID pandemic and all of the surrounding unknowns, Zoe, Ben and all staff at The Doctor's House worked with us to create a beautiful wedding reception held within the guidelines recommended by Health Canada. They were very quick to respond and communicate with us during the ever-changing days preceding our wedding on August 7th 2020. They were committed to our vision of celebrating our wedding on our chosen date no matter what changes would be required to stay within safe guidelines at the time. They were flexible, understanding, and extremely prompt in all their efforts to help us. We are extremely grateful for all of the staff at the Doctor's House for making our wedding celebration more beautiful, intentional and special than we ever imagined. Simply put, they were as devoted as we were to creating an elegant day in the midst of a turbulent season. We will never forget The Doctor's House efforts and praise them for handling our situation in a helpful, diligent and courteous manner.

    Sincerely,
    Christina and Robert

    Incredible Experience!

    We recently got married at this venue and have nothing but positive things to say about it. The venue was gorgeous, with a beautiful chapel and recently renovated reception room. The staff were incredibly helpful before the event in planning and during the day to make everything run smoothly. The cost of the venue was equal or cheaper than almost every alternative we looked at, particularly ones that would have involved organizing of catering, tables, etc. The food was absolutely incredible, with canapes, multiple courses, and a midnight snack that left absolutely no one hungry. There was nothing we would have changed with regards to the Doctor's House and we will recommend this venue to others!

    Okay start, AMAZING finish

    Everybody's experience with TDH seems to be an individual experience. For those who are looking to book with TDH, remember that bad reviews should not deter you. There were things that happened (read below) that could have caused me to write a negative review but it really depends how you view the situation. Every venue will have good/bad things that happen, nothing is ever perfect.

    Jessica Coles was our guide when it came to touring and booking the venue and room. She was wonderful; very friendly, answered our questions, provided us with options, and made verbal promises that were later (almost) not honoured. Advice: get EVERYTHING in writing. We initially signed the contract for The Heritage Room, with no room rental fee mentioned; upon booking this room, Jessica Coles informed us that as long as there wasn't another wedding booked on this day, we could upgrade to The Great Hall at any time. Jessica Coles ended up going on a sick leave however we were not informed of this until after I had tried to email her a few times; I wish it would have been communicated to us that she had left as there were a few emails that went unanswered for a period of time. I found the communication in the beginning (before our coordinator was assigned) a bit slow/disappointing.

    6 months after booking The Heritage Room, I had decided to go see it set up for a wedding of about 120 people. I was really disappointed with the size of the dance floor, so we decided to upgrade to The Great Hall. When a new contract was drafted for us, we were informed that we were being charged a $1500 room rental fee. We were shocked - how could they possibly try to charge us this fee when we had already signed a contract where this fee did NOT apply, and we were giving them more money by upgrading to a new room? Their reasoning was that it was a "new policy" that had been implemented. This was the most disappointing part of our experience because it was completely unprofessional. After many discussions via email and on the phone with Paula the Office Manager, Marc Graci (another manager, I believe) and Jessica Da Silva (later to be our assigned coordinator), they finally agreed to waive the room rental fee and we upgraded to The Great Hall room.

    From this point on, the rest of our experience with TDH was good. Jessica Da Silva was our assigned coordinator and she was easy to work with. She was prompt in replying to my emails, was able to answer our questions and she worked hard to honour the changes/promises that Jessica Coles initially informed us of. In addition, Jessica Da Silva made sure that my requests were honoured - i.e. I asked for the receiving table & head table linens to be steamed; I asked for specific furniture to be removed from the room, etc and she made it all happen.

    Our wedding day is where I can confidently rate our experience an 11/10. Ugee, the Operations Manager, as well as the kitchen captain were absolutely outstanding. Ugee provided us with exceptional customer service and professionalism, and truly made the reception spectacular. There was a small hiccup with seating and he made sure to assure me that everything was fine; he made sure the kitchen made extra food in case there were future hiccups; he brought my husband and I a plate of the cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres to our seat to ensure we were able to eat; he consistently brought us bottled water while we were in the receiving line; he brought me TWO different types of seafood platters (I have a dairy allergy) , and brought me my own version of the late night station right to my seat (again due to dietary restriction). He always made sure to ask us how the food was; if there was anything we needed; offered to bring us drinks to our seat, etc. Even our guests were complimenting the customer service! We cannot say enough good things about him and the captain; the captain made sure to introduce herself to me and assure me if there was anything we needed, she would make it happen. At the end of the night, they packed us a "to go" bag with food (adjusted to my dietary restrictions), bottled water, and chips to take with us to the hotel; this was so kind of him & definitely came in handy!

    We received SO many compliments from guests about the food and the overall experience. The bartenders were so quick that night with the drinks, there was very minimal waiting at the bar for drinks. All of the staff and servers were very kind; we have absolutely nothing bad to say about the execution of the wedding reception. Food and experience were 11/10.

    We were also the only wedding that day (thankfully) so we had the entire venue/grounds to ourselves They allowed us to take pictures indoors and outdoors; Ugee even approached us to let us know they were unlocking the chapel for us so that my husband and I could take pictures inside. He made us feel so comfortable the entire evening, and he was incredibly kind and helpful.

    I was worried that we would have a disappointing experience based on the few issues that occurred upon initially booking, however everything turned around and the day of our wedding was incredible. Thank you to Ugee, the kitchen captain, and Jessica Da Silva for a wonderful experience at TDH.
