We've booked a 3 night stay over Platinythe Jubilee holiday Wednesday to Saturday, a quiet break in the countryside. Less than 48hra before arrival the hotel has written to me to inform that there are wedding parties on 2 of our 3 nights with loud noise ( their words ) expected until 12am and 1am respectively. They have also advised I need to book a breakfast table slot likely 7-8am as other times are taken, the wedding party is prioritised between 8.30 and 9.30am. Even though my rate was a non-refundable rate surely as they have changed the conditions of my stay I can claim a refund or compensation. Interested in thoughts out there and whether there are any others with similar experience. I wouldn't have booked if I had known this beforehand. Thanks. So disappointing.

Unfortunately you are but a single voice compared to the wedding group who are providing much needed revenue. Personally I would be looking for an alternative hotel but availability might be a problem unless you can be flexible with the location
Ah well, it is what it is, the hotel told us they're not obliged to tell us if a wedding is on and my lesson here is always to ask before I make a reservation and take a good book.
Place we recently stayed at was generally booked room, breakfast & dinner. And it was a dog friendly place except no dogs were allowed in the dining room. So them with their pups were give tables to eat at in the salon/bar area. Perfectly nice, still had great service. Maybe something like that could be requested.

Be honest, after a 1.00am end to the wedding party, I can well see quite a few of the guests not making it down to breakfast anyway, so there is likely to be adequate space.
