Christenings or Naming Ceremonies are a wonderful time to celebrate and get all your family and friends together to celebrate the life of a child.

Celebrate your new arrival in style at the Best Western Valley Hotel. We have a wide variety of dining options available for you and your guests from a light buffet menu to a more substantial sit down meal option. We also have a variety of rooms, to cater perfectly to the size of your party. 

The Severn Suite is our largest room suitable for up to 150 guests for an informal buffet style event. 

Alternatively you could consider the restaurant and bar area that opens out on to the terrace overlooking the Ironbridge Gorge for smaller parties for up to 65 guests. 

Baby Showers are an American tradition but are becoming increasing popular. Why not hire a room and serve a light buffet for your family and friends? 

According to etiquette, because the party centres on gift-giving, the baby shower is typically arranged and hosted by a close friend rather than a member of the family, since it is considered rude for families to beg for gifts on behalf of their members.
