Funeral Receptions

Many years experience attending to customers needs at this difficult time

At Sopwell House we understand that organising an after-funeral reception can be stressful at what is already a stressful and emotional time. We have all lost somebody close to us at some point in our lives and know how heartbreaking and traumatic a time this can be. Here at Sopwell House we have many years of experience in sympathetically attending to customers needs at this difficult time and will help you every step of the way to ensure that you have one less thing to worry about.

Set within peaceful gardens and grounds in the Hertfordshire countryside yet with superb transport links and extensive on-site parking, we are the ideal venue for a funeral reception. Our dedicated events wing can accommodate up to 500 people with a range flexible function suites, many with terraces opening onto the gardens. There is a dedicated entrance which has a ramp for wheelchair access and digital signage for displaying photos. We will ensure that your guests are welcomed to the hotel in person, made to feel comfortable and catered for with the level of care and attention appropriate for such a difficult time.

Sopwell House is conveniently situated close to West Herts Crematorium and Hatfield Road Cemetery offering your funeral party easy accessibility to the reception venue without the inconvenience of negotiating the centre of Watford or St Albans. Our events team will be happy to assist you with the organisation of your funeral reception, can discuss menu choices with you and will be happy to assist you with any special requirements you may have.
