Impressive venue set in parkland in the centre of
Venue Service

By Caroline Mileham, on 14 Jul 2015

We had our wedding reception at Hitchin Priory and were very pleased with their service and organisation. We had a perfect day. We had 100 guests and hired the house along with a drinks reception in the walled garden. We had been concerned as we discovered that there would be another wedding on the same day in the grounds of the hotel but we didn't even notice this on the day. I was very impressed with how the staff coordinated both weddings so that we never encroached on each others special day. The food on the day was excellent ( we had 2 food tastings prior to the wedding as we weren't happy with the first tasting and this clearly paid-off) The restaurant staff were very adaptable and happy to keep working on the dishes until we were happy. Our wedding co-ordinator and all staff were incredibly helpful, attentive and we felt our wedding was well organised. The Priory is an impressive building in lovely parkland. The public rooms are similarly impressive so it's a great venue... With planned investment from the owners to refurb the hotel rooms this venue should become outstanding. Awe had a wonderful day and would recommend it.

Best day of our lives

We found the Hitchin Priory by chance, on route back from viewing a terrible venue. From day one, nothing has been too much trouble. The prices are reasonable, the menu was adaptable and the food was amazing. On the wedding day, everything went according to plan and we felt totally safe in the teams hands. The ceremony room was beautiful, no extra decorations or chair covers required and we were able to access the marquee to setup exactly how we wanted the day before. The grounds are impressive and along with the historical building, we have some beautiful photos to remember our day

Stunning venue

By The Fitzgeralds, on 16 Jan 2007

We got married here in December 2006 and had an amazing day. Kimberley the coordinator was extremely helpful. The glass atrium looked stunning lit up at night and the Delme room is a beautiful room for a medium sized wedding it seats up to 80 and we had it full to capacity, it was perfect for speeches! Would recommend it to anyone, food was absolutely lovely as well, had so many compliments about the venue and the food.
