We were married at this beautiful York landmark building in February this year. The most impressive thing about this building and venue is the quality of its staff. Jenn and Melody were amazing and helped me to organise a wedding from abroad in a very short space of time. Nothing and I mean nothing was ever too much trouble. I felt that the day was handled so professionally and it ran without a hitch because of this. I always felt in safe hands with everything that was arranged and would tell any prospective bride and groom looking to book this venue to JUST DO IT!

I visited York recently and as I am attending my stepdaughters wedding in July I called to see the venue. I am so excited now and can't wait for the big day. Hospitium is everything I expected it to be and more ..... It is so in keeping with beautiful historic York City and the perfect wedding venue. I am confident that the management and staff will do us proud.

Attended a wedding reception at the Hospitium. Very impressed, the location is excellent and all the organisation went very smoothly. The reception and food i thought were superb. The pre meal treats were very tasty and the Mead punch was very welcome on a cold Saturday night. The subsequent buffet meal was well organised, plentiful and of a very high quality. highly recommended

After visiting York for a wedding at this venue, I found the place to be quaint. However, this is the only charm the venue holds! The staff were less than helpful, the food average and the price of Luke warm drinks extortionate!
My friend was highly distressed at the poor entertainment provided at the evening disco, by nightowls? When she looked for staff to discuss her concerns with, the seemed more concerned about hiding in their office and using Facebook, than to be bothered to help!
If you are thinking of getting married at this venue, I implore you .. don't!

I am so sorry to read the above review about the Hospitium and to learn you felt your experience with us was so disappointing. It really is a shock to read the above comment. We have around 80-90 weddings per year here and receive countless thank you letters and reviews so to find this bad review is quite upsetting. I urge people to look at www.hitched.co.uk and find our reviews on there - we have no control over these reviews and you can see the outstanding service we always provide. As you will see on Hitched, our caterers receive just as many positive reviews and are incredibly popular around York so I am just as shocked to receive a complaint about the drinks. I will of course investigate this as much as I can without the wedding date. My sincerest apologies again.
