The Pridwin Hotel Reviews

Date posted: February 17, 2015
Review: We were married last fall at the Pridwin Hotel. There are a lot of lovely spots on Shelter Island that we looked into; we were sure we wanted Shelter Island, but beyond that, we didn’t have many firm ideas in mind. We looked at big venues and small ones, places with tons of reviews and spots we’d never heard of, and ultimately we ended up choosing this hotel. Why? Part of it was the reviews, yes; Pridwin is one of the better-known spots on Shelter Island. But what really sold us was Alissa. While we were talking to the event coordinators at the other venues, we noticed all sorts of problems with their attitudes. Either they weren’t willing to hear us out on what we needed and thought our ideas were too complicated, or they seemed like they weren’t really focused or on-task. Or they tried to sell us huge packages we couldn’t afford. Alissa was a breath of fresh air after all of that. She was polite, attentive, and showed us nothing but friendliness and enthusiasm. We knew immediately we could trust her with our wedding. Her attitude was such a sharp difference from what we’d been putting up with on the phone with the rest that we didn’t even want to think about checking out any more venues. We were settled; Pridwin was it! We set up an appointment to take the tour in person and loved every inch of this amazing hotel. In particular, we really loved the deck overlooking the bay! You’re up above the bay so that you get a great view looking out. There was plenty of room for our guests to celebrate there and down on the lawn below. The atmosphere is really unique and the hotel itself is beautiful. It has an old-fashioned look to it which reminds me of some other world-class hotels I’ve stayed at on vacation before in a couple different locations. The lobby is gorgeous, by the way! It has this real feeling of openness, and the décor is rustic and has a nice “beach” vibe. It’s so charming. Here they are willing to work with any vendors you want to hire, or you can let them set things up for you. They have a list of vendors they work with for flowers, music, photography, and even hairdressing! There’s so much to choose from when you plan your wedding menu, which was one of the funnest parts in my opinion! I loved the d’oeuvres. Sushi rolls—as good as any Japanese restaurant in town—fig wraps, and some kind of salmon cucumber thing that is hard to describe but it was so good! Awesome little miniature burgers. Scallops. Can’t remember the rest. It was a while ago now of course, but it was all amazing. Can’t say how many of our guests were like, “This is the best cocktail party ever.” For dinner they had fresh local fish with pecans. Very nicely prepared and tender. Not too fishy. Perfect. And yes, I got to eat it, thanks to my amazing bridal attendant, who made sure that I got to the dinner in time and actually sat down and ate. For dessert they made us a cake to order. It was the tastiest cake I ever ate. Seriously. This chef may be a genius. The bottom line is that you can’t go wrong with Pridwin. It’s a big place, but by no means is it impersonal. It’s ideal if you have a lot of guests you are looking to entertain, you want delicious food, amazing service, and a gorgeous Shelter Island location. Be sure that when you call, you ask for Alissa.

Review: It’s hard to beat this place for location. It’s right on the water on Shelter Island, and they have plenty of acreage here and a lot of greenery. The feeling is one of seclusion, like you’ve gotten far away from the bustle of city life. The views of the bay are just lovely, and they have huge lawns where you can spread out and have a good time. Be sure to plan ahead though, because this is a seasonal place and they close for the winter fairly early in the year. We had read up on this place online before we contacted Alissa. We loved what we were seeing in the photographs; it was exactly the atmosphere we were looking for, and we had a lot of guests flying in to attend, so it was just common sense to go with a hotel. We didn’t want a big chain hotel though! We wanted some place that was unique to the area and really captures what it’s like to live on Long Island. Alissa was outstanding to plan with! She had a list of suggestions ready for us for vendors, and helped set us up with a DJ, a florist, and even a hair stylist. She was just bounding with enthusiasm right from word go, and she helped us schedule a date that would work for everyone. At first we were planning on getting married off the grounds and just doing the reception here, but we ended up deciding to just do it all here. It seemed easier, and it was, and besides, you really can’t beat the view of the bay, which was wonderful, especially with the phenomenal weather we got on the day of the wedding! We even ate dinner outside, which was a lot of fun! Speaking of food, the dinner is incredible. You get hors d’oeuvres, platters and stations soups, salads, delicious main courses and sides, and amazing desserts. They had a lot of choices for dessert, more than we noticed on other venue menus when we were shopping around. We got a wedding cake of course, but we also picked a couple of the other amazing desserts. For the entrees, we went with the fish of the day, a chicken dish, and the filet mignon. The filet mignon was outstanding. I wish so much I could have tried everything! Oh yeah, and I can’t forget about the appetizers. The most amazing scallops I have ever eaten. Like I mentioned, we did choose this place in part because it’s a hotel, and we stayed in one of the cottages while we were here. Our room had lovely hardwood walls and modern décor. And best of all, we had a view of the bay out the windows! It was very romantic; they really put us in the most amazing spot! This hotel was quite a find, and we are very glad that we didn’t just pick the first wedding venue we looked at, but kept browsing. It took us a while to find them, and they don’t have as many reviews as some other places, but this is probably because they are seasonal and not everyone can manage to schedule a wedding here. I promise you though, it is worth it. Plan for a summer wedding and book a reservation as early as you can. You will be so happy you did!
