Venue Sound limits your entertainment
Venue Service

By Anthony, on 19 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 12 May 2018

This venue has a sound restriction which could affect the quality of your entertainment. Be mindful, the sound limiter is set too low. My experience was not good. We could barely hear the DJ & live band

Michelle Marwood, Assistant Manager at Hylands House and Grand Pavilion responded to this review on 21/09/2018 08:55:49

Many thanks for your review. Hylands Estate has had a 90 decibel sound limit for the past 5 years and we have never had a complaint. We always advise the DJ to sound check during the day to set the bass level to ensure the music doesn't cut out. If you would like to discuss this further please contact michelle.marwood@chelmsford.gov.uk Kind regards, Hylands Estate.

Thank you very much!

I got married here in the middle of July and it was absolutely perfect. Carla and her team are faultlessly polite and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble and everyone is flexible and accomodating in terms of allowing you to have the day you want and how you want it. As a venue Hylands House is stunning with a whole series of beautiful rooms and wonderful grounds. My husband and I could not have picked a better venue for our special day.
