We had a plethora of problems with the Lord Jeff on our wedding day. The rudeness and pompousness by the staff made us feel unwelcome as the bride and groom. I would suggest looking elsewhere if you're planning to spend a significant amount of money on a reception venue and want to be treated properly. I never felt relaxed at my own wedding and woke up the next day angry at choosing such an inconsiderate venue to celebrate our love. If it wasn't for our DJ and photographer, the day would have been ruined.

The Lord Jeffery Inn responded with the following comments:

Dear Elyse,

It is unsettling that you feel regret in choosing us as your venue. We do not take lightly the responsibility of fulfilling our clients’ vision for their special day. Our team prides itself on delivering exceptional service and creating memorable experiences for our guests. Which is why I am disappointed to learn that we failed to meet the high expectations we set for ourselves.

It is clear, we missed the mark when it came to providing you with the service you were expecting. Please accept my sincerest apologies for our service failures on a very important and special day. When executing for our guests, we always think in terms of earning the business for a lifetime. We recognize there are many life-events to celebrate and we want to be your partners in creating memorable experiences that last a lifetime. Please contact me directly so we can discuss further and regain your trust.

Sincerely,

Fabio Pari-Di-Monriva, General Manager

The staff at the Lord Jeff is excellent!! Every interaction with them was pleasant and we really felt as though we were the only couple getting married there. Our guests absolutely loved the venue and the food was the biggest hit. As self-proclaimed foodies we knew that we did not want your typical "wedding food" and LJI did not disappoint. The tasting was delicious with so many different options. We also loved how willing they were to customize the menu. To honor of my husband's Jamaican heritage the Chef created an amazing jerk rub for the chicken, which was a special touch that all our family appreciated. Sarah and her staff were incredible and made us feel so special and gave all our guests the VIP treatment. We can't wait to celebrate our first anniversary at the LJI. Thank you for helping make our wedding one that we, and our families, will never forget!

Amanda was wonderful to work with. She is very kind and very responsive to any questions or comments. The venue itself is gorgeous and our outdoor ceremony was beautiful. There were a few hick ups such as the roof not being set up for the wedding party and not really having access to the entire grounds--that was something that was said at our consultation; the access to grounds could very well have been an oversight by me, not Amanda. All in all very happy with the Lord Jeff and the hick ups were very minuscule, but for the amount you're paying, you want to have everything that was promised.

(As a side note, their food is AMAZING! Our guests have been raving about the pasta bar!)

Knowing its reputation as a premiere venue in the Pioneer Valley, I was sure that it would not be affordable. Amanda Long put our fears to rest right away, and I was impressed with her personable nature from the very start. The Lord Jeff is the classic, romantic New England inn you have always dreamed of, but with all of the modern touches. I especially liked the firepits that dot the grounds . The staff are always attentive to your needs. The hotel rooms are elegant. 30 Boltwood uses the same kitchen and ingredients as the reception venue.

Wedding planning is a breeze at the Lord Jeff. Having to organize a wedding from Australia was an extremely difficult task, but Amanda helped at every step of the way. At no point did we feel snowed under with tasks and her guidance for us was thoroughly appreciated--linens? Colors? Little touches? Leading up to the wedding, Amanda saved the day by providing advice to us about a horrible issue involving tuxedos, and without her pep talk, we would not have had the best day. The Services Manager has only missed one wedding in all of his time at the inn, and that was to be a guest at Amanda's--talk about being dedicated to your job! Every guest raved about the staff. They helped put these grooms at ease every step of the way. Not only do they work extremely hard during venue but they set everything up for you. They not only do this according to your wishes, but they can make your sometimes disordered ideas into a perfected reality! The day completely went according to plan at the Lord Jeff. The staff ensured we stuck as closely as possible to the timeline. The food was exquisite (every guest was a fan!) and plentiful. There is not one bad word to say, and as a teacher I can be critical when I need to be. Impressed at every stage. The saddest part about the wedding week had to be checking out.

If you want the best service, the finest location and the best day, choose the Lord Jeff.

The Lord Jeffery and Amanda were wonderful for our big day! The Inn is just gorgeous and all of our wedding guests from out of town were just overwhelmed with its charm. The food was amazing, and the Lord Jeffery was very accommodating with any requests that we had-- food or otherwise. I would not have wanted to get married anywhere else!

We could not have picked a better venue for our June 2015 wedding! Amanda and her team at the inn are amazing. I had no idea what to expect when we started planning our wedding but it was totally stress free at the Lord Jeffery Inn.

We had our 6PM ceremony out on the back patio and our cocktail hour up on the gorgeous roof deck (the roof deck sealed the deal for us when we were looking at having our wedding there. It's absolutely perfect for an early summer evening) and our reception in the ballroom. The ballroom is beautiful (and the chandeliers are so lovely) and guests were able to access the back patio from the ballroom throughout the evening.

The food was fantastic! My husband and I really wanted to have amazing food for our guests and the Lord Jeffery Inn went above and beyond! This is not your typical wedding food that you find in a lot places. So many of our guests raved about the food as well as the wonderful service.

The inn itself is absolutely beautiful! Our immediate family and some close friends stayed at the inn with us for a couple of nights and it was so nice to be able to spend time with them the day before and the morning after for breakfast.

I've had so many of our guests tell us it was THE BEST wedding they had ever attended. Amanda Long is a true professional (as well as Jeff and everyone else at the inn) and so easy to work with. Every detail was taken care of and I felt absolutely NO stress on my wedding day. Thank you so much Amanda and your team for making our wedding the best evening ever! We are looking forward to returning for our anniversary.

We had the ceremony and reception at the Lord Jeffery Inn. All the staff were very accommodating but Amanda was particularly helpful in planning the day and always made time for me even when I dropped in unexpectedly. She made recommendations for our florist, bakery, photographer, DJ, and JP. And we were happy with all of them. The food was excellent as well. We were married on a Sunday, which made this venue much more affordable. We were very happy overall.

My wedding was in October of 2014. From the moment we met Amanda she was extremely kind. While I was beyond excited to marry my Husband, I was not the kind of woman that had been dreaming about her wedding. I was honestly busy with work, family, kids and school. My husband had just started a new job (promotion yay) and the kids were busy like no other. The most important thing to me was my ceremony script. Beyond that, I sort of had no idea.

Amanda was extremely helpful. She pushed me in the right directions offered guidance, but also allowed us to make our wedding our own by not going 100% traditional. We fooled around with floor plans, furniture plans, indoor, outdoor. etc. after signing the contract. Not only did we end up in the grand ballroom with a cocktail hour on the gorgeous deck but we did our ceremony outside under the Pergola. This wasn't originally the plan at all- but the Jeff honored the same price and worked with me on alternate floor plans and ideas. It was awesome and reassuring.

I also changed my menu 4 times including my plan for alcohol. Amanda was patient and totally understanding. I never felt any pressure to pick one thing over another. I have to say, the food was the best that I have EVER been served at a wedding. It was not lacking, it was delicious (I am very picky) I would pay for that full price at a restaurant again and again.

Jeff was also magnificent the day of. Both Amanda and Jeff were helpful and present all the way to the end. Amanda even helped make sure that my dancing shoes weren't caught in my slip prior to our entrance to the reception. And, when I appeared nervous in the elevator after pictures Amanda ordered a "Mimosa on the fly for the Bride" on her walkie talkie. Too funny and priceless!

In the end, I treasured my ceremony and my marriage more then reception. But I always feel that way! My guests loved it though! And my husband danced ALL NIGHT. Thanks Lord Jeff.

The Lord Jeffery Inn was the perfect spot for our fall wedding. Though we are Amherst residents, the charm of the Inn made it an easy choice for our special day. Amanda, the wedding coordinator, was wonderful from the get go and was so helpful from the day we booked until the day of. The staff were all so wonderful the day of and were so accommodating of our families and friends. Even though it rained and we weren't able to have our ceremony outside, the staff quickly converted the indoor banquet room into a cozy, intimate and beautiful space for our ceremony. We had our reception in the tent and it was terrific. We had many people say that it was the best wedding they had ever been to and I think we owe that to the Lord Jeffery Inn!
**not to mention that it is a BEAUTIFUL backdrop for pictures with all of the wonderful hidden spots**

I can't say enough good things about the Lord Jeff!
Our wedding there was PERFECT. From the beginning, Amanda our wedding coordinator, was amazing. She was extremely detail oriented, and listened to exactly what we wanted. She was receptive to all of our suggestions, and even helped make some last minute tweaks. She made us feel 100% taken care of, and because of her I could really enjoy our wedding without worrying about the details. The rest of the staff at the Inn was also extremely service oriented, and everyone we met was a pleasure to work with.

The venue itself is beautiful. We had our ceremony in the back of the inn, and our reception outside in tent. Both worked out great!

I can't recommend the Lord Jeff enough! From start to finish they made sure our wedding was exactly what we wanted, and everything ran flawlessly on the big day.
