“Simply a Perfect Wedding”
Reviewed 6 November 2010

Our wedding took place on October 15th 2010 at the York Pavilion Hotel, We had been planning our wedding for over 12 months and from the very first meeting we were made to feel like the most important people ever, Kate O’Hara the wedding co-ordinator is worth her weight in gold nothing is too much trouble, and this goes for all the staff they all go the extra mile to make your day perfect!

We had almost 50 guests during the day and a further 50 at the evening reception the room was decked out to a very high standard and the food was Michelin standard through every course, with the Beef being the best we have ever had in any Restaurant! The evening buffet was also very good and we included a 1.5m chocolate fountain which the hotel will gladly accommodate for you but you will have to organise it yourself.

The resident DJ also deserves a mention as he was outstanding played all requests and managed a seamless flow of music that everybody enjoyed packing the dance floor till the early hours.
We and our guests booked almost 20 of the rooms in the hotel and everybody had a wonderful stay some of the rooms are huge some have four poster beds, king size beds and queen beds, they all have one thing in common they are comfortable clean and well maintained. We stayed in the Honeymoon suite Room 3 and it is the largest room in the hotel with the most comfortable bed ever. Some guests stayed for 3 nights and they could not fault this hotel and as a wedding venue it is perfect.

On a finishing note My Wife and I would like to thank all the staff at York Pavilion Hotel, for making our wedding day perfect, not only for us but for all our family and friends who joined us in celebrating our marriage, they have all said the same thing Wow a perfect day in a perfect venue it couldn’t have gone any better!!!!!!

Our wedding could not have been more perfect , we were so well looked after by the staff but our special thanks go to Kate O'Hara and Rob Willis who went out of their way to make sure our day went perfectly which it did, we now class them as personal friends. The staff were brilliant and so friendly. The food was excellent. Our 55 guests of all ages loved the wedding and stated the venue was perfect. They were well looked after too and those that stayed overnight would stay again. What a fantastic day we had and thankyou to you all.

If you are looking for a venue for your wedding, you will not go wrong with this fabulous hotel. Set on the edge of York City Centre with local amenities within reach, this hotel offers a delighful setting for a wedding. The staff were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble and everything that was promised was delivered. The staff told me to relax and leave it to them to make sure the day run smoothly and it certainly did. No hiccups at all and many of my guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. The resident DJ contributed to this as he played exactly what we asked for. The food was first class, the service was first class and the manners and effeciency of the staff were impeccable. I had 1 night in room 3 with a four poster bed and a fantastically large bathroom, all I needed to get ready in. The wedding night we had the honeymoon suite, which was a large spacious comfortable room, with the most comfy bed ever. We had many guests staying at the hotel for 2 nights and they all agreed with us that the hotel was run both effeciently and friendly.. Overall a fantastic wedding and its all thanks to the wedding planner Ben and the staff at the hotel. We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for a short break or a special occasion.

My husband and I had our wedding reception at the pavilion and the staff couldn't do enough for us. I've sent the some flowers and a thankyou card they were that good. The food was beautiful and we saw 8 different rooms due to family staying and they were all so different, gorgeous decor and very clean. Everyone couldn't believe how great the hotel was, the food and staff. We had the best day of our lives thanks to the pavilion.

We stayed in September 2010 for two nights

The price was reasonable but

(1) the bedroom lighting was gloomy and it was
impossible to read books or newspapers

(2) there was a very limited trickle of hot water
and the basin took ages to partially fill

Really warm greeting from all the staff. They tried very hard to accomodate all our requirements. We were a large group, 45, and we were all settled in 20 minutes.
Slightly dissapointed that we had some customers living over the road from the hotel.
The food, generally was quite acceptable although the portions were on the small side.
Special mention to Rob in the restaurant and Adam, the duty manager. They were the best ambassadors that a hotel could have. They interacted well with the group and nothing was too much trouble.
The hotel was on a main road into town and there was a good bus service from the bus stop opposite. Just far enough out of town to be away from the bustle of a city centre.
We would use this hotel again for one of our groups.
