Beautiful setting
Venue Service

By Louise Ryan, on 14 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 24 May 2019

We first visited Hazlewood castle in September 2017, we loved the venue from the minute we arrived. Kelly and Melissa we’re both so welcoming and professional. They kept us up to date throughout the whole planning process and tried to make things as stress free as possible for us. Every time we visited the venue in the lead up to our wedding the staff made us feel special and excited. The day itself ran so smoothly and we didn’t have any complaints at all. The guests were amazed by the beautiful setting and the professionalism of the staff during the entire event, precious evening and following morning! I can’t recommend them enough.

The best day ever
Venue Service

By Emma Black, on 14 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 23 Mar 2019

Hazlewood Castle were an amazing venue. They were so accommodating with us, we had to change the date due to an unexpected pregnancy and they were very understanding and made it easy for us to do this. They couldn’t do enough for us in the lead up and on the day. And really did make our day the best day ever with the most amazing memories.

For me, communication is so important. I like to know how things are getting on, get fast replies to questions and feel fully supported. The staff at Hazlewood Castle was so fantastic, no question was too long or too annoying! They got back to me in matters of minutes and held my hand every step of the way in the build up to the wedding. On the wedding day, they had so much staff working that everything ran smoothly. We felt lie everything was thought of and honestly it really was a luxury venue. The food and service was WOW!All our guests were raving about the food and of course how excellent the service was. Everything about our day was perfect and it was down to the professional and amazing staff at Hazlewood Castle. Worth every penny!

An absolutely perfect day
Venue Service

By Jade Barker, on 14 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Oct 2018

We had an absolutely perfect day, the venue is so beautiful and the staff couldn't be more helpful. The feedback from our guests on how amazing the venue and food was over-whelming. We couldn't fault the food and breakfast in the morning was also superb. After making it such a memorable day for us, Hazelwood Castle will always hold a place close to our hearts and we will visit frequently over the many coming years.

Truly Magical Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Bianca Cipriano, on 14 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Sep 2018

My day was truly magical because of Hazlewood Castle, I was treated like a princess! I'll never forget the amazing planning, vicar and amazing help on the day. The help that seems little such as holding an umbrella over me in my dress, directing me to the venue, telling me I looked beautiful meant the world. I will never forget the best day of my life there! I would highly recommend the beautiful venue and amazing staff. A dream come true!

The most memorable day of our lives
Venue Service

By Sam Pearson, on 14 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 30 Jul 2018

The experience we had at Hazlewood Castle was unforgettable. The venue team, especially Kate and Emma, made our special day even more special, every little detail was covered and we had nothing to worry about at all. The venue itself is absolutely stunning, we knew we wanted to get married there soon as we saw the setting, from the well-kept grounds to the amazing historic castle. It was perfect. From the meal tasting to the ceremony, we were treated like royalty. The food was unbelievable and the team didn't hesitate to customise the meals to our wishes. All our guests are still talking about our wedding day, its so nice to know that all our guests had the most amazing time as-well. We will never forget how perfect our wedding day was and we want to thank Hazlewood Castle for making it the most memorable day of our lives.

Amazing wedding venue!
Venue Service

By Laura and Ben, on 13 Feb 2017Date of Wedding - 21 Aug 2016

We got married at Hazlewood Castle in August 2016, it was an amazing day and we had so many positive comments from our guests about the venue. The food was great, from the canapes to the main meal and the evening buffet. The staff on the day were fantastic and we felt so looked after, we didn't have to worry about anything at all, we could just enjoy the day. Our wedding coordinator (Melissa) was amazing from start to finish, nothing was too much trouble and she was accommodating with all of our requests. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hazlewood as a wedding venue.

Chris and Colettes Wedding
Venue Service

By Chris & Colette, on 14 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 26 May 2016

My husband and I got married at hazlewood castle in May. We had a civil ceremony in the old dining room followed by a blessing in the Chapel. The whole day was planned meticulously by Kelly and all the staff worked together to ensure everything went to plan and we had a perfect day. I can not fault anyone at hazlewood they were all ready to help with whatever we needed and they took all the stress out of the day so that we could enjoy our special day. The venue is just perfect for weddings as the surroundings really are beautiful and allow for stunning photos. The accommodation is also excellent. My room was more spacious than I have ever experienced and our guests were all very happy with their rooms. We stayed for 3 nights and in this time we also ate at the restaurant. The food was delicious and the staff were great. Breakfast was also a fantastic experience with lots of choice and helpfully staff ready to help. We will definitely return in the near future.

Lovely wedding venue
Venue Service

By Jade Ward & Phil Ellerby, on 20 Apr 2015

After a long time googling wedding venues in York, we found Hazlewood castle and knew it was the one! The castle and grounds are lovely, and make for a beautiful ceremony and reception. The food was AMAZING; absolutely delicious and really generous portions. The team were brilliant; a huge thank you to Kelly who was our wedding planner. She gave solid advice, was easy to work with, faultlessly professional and reliable – everything felt extremely well organised which made our lives so much easier. Thanks also to Steve for all his help, and Rachel, our coordinator on the day for being so calm and collected, ensuring everything ran smoothly and being a great toastmaster. Hazlewood were flexible and accommodating to our requests, helping make our wedding a wonderful day! Jasmine is a fantastic room to use for getting ready, and the bridal suite (Elderflower) is lovely too. Thank you so much to all the staff for everything they did for us – we are definitely going to come back for our anniversary! One minor point; the castle rooms had unreliable heating in two of the rooms occupied by my family. My elderly grandparents were in a room with no heating in February, and the reception team weren’t proactive in following this up – when asked the second time they sent a heater up (after initially saying they would deal with it the next day). We did get some money back at check out, however it would be better if the team could check the heating in these rooms before guests arrive and have a more proactive response when issues do arise. Overall – we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Hazlewood. Thank you all so much. Jade and Phil

Superb Venue
Venue Service

By Gav S, on 03 May 2012

Not sure where to start on this as the venue and staff were outstanding but here we go: We got married here in mid April and everything running up to and on the day was fantastic. The venue is absolutely stunning, the grounds are extensive and beautiful, the hotel itself was amazing. The head concierge (Steve) who did the initial show round was the most genuine and honest person you could have asked for. Without the need for any sort of hard sell his manner and upfront tour of the hotel and grounds were second to none. The wedding coordinator (Melissa) was superb, she reassured, guided, offered advice and was an all round rock from the day we booked and even post event. The new wife naturally had the most contact with Melissa, but the fact even my questions were resolved faster than I anticipated shows how efficient she is and a real asset to the hotel. Our toast master and coordinator (Luke) was without doubt an absolute legend. Whatever was asked by family, friends and us he couldn't have been more attentive. As with any event we wanted last minute changes/had questions and just wanted reassurance and Luke covered all of this with ease. I must add my new wife and I have worked in the hospitality industry for over 20 years and could only wish we had a couple of people like Luke as he is nothing short of exceptional. At times we felt like we were just at home in our front room we were that relaxed and comfortable within this stunning venue supported by fantastic staff. Thank you to everyone for making our wedding the perfect day. We're looking forward to revisiting again soon.

Best Day of Their Life
Venue Service

By Pat & Alan, on 28 Mar 2012

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all at Hazlewood Castle for the most wonderful wedding day we could have imagined. Our daughter Hannah was married there last week and we could never have imagined or hoped how well it turned out. Hannah had very definite ideas about how she wanted things to be and they were carried out to the smallest of details. From the moment we walked through the door the night before we were welcomed warmly, especially by Steve who went out of his way to talk to us and tell us a little of the history of the castle ( we really must come back and get the full tour!). The actual wedding day was perfect in every way and a special mention must be made of Luke who was, friendly, attentive and helped the whole thing run smoothly, even down to delaying the start of the meal by 30 minutes because we were enjoying the sun, the champagne and having photos taken too much. He is an asset to Hazlewood and whatever he gets paid, earns every penny! He was on hand whenever needed and we felt confident that everything was well organised. Finally thanks to those behind the scenes - Chef, the food was beautiful, both the Wedding breakfast and the evening buffet. How some managed to get through a five course meal and then eat fish and chips a few hours later was beyond us, but they did! Once again, our heartfelt thanks for giving us a day which was described aptly by one guest as 'one of the best days of their life'.

Huge Thanks
Venue Service

By Andrew & Mandy, on 09 Nov 2011

Dear Melissa, Steve, Steve and all who made our wedding day so very special at Hazlewood, A belated huge thanks to you all for all that you did to make our day so wonderful.

Again sincere thanks and we look forward to seeing you again - perhaps a small dinner for our first anniversary?? Take good care of yourselves and keep up the good work of keeping people happy
