    Venue Sound limits your entertainment

    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

    Hylands House and Grand Pavilion's reply:

    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.

    We all had a fabulous day....

    My daughter had her wedding at Hylands House and although I don't normally do this sort of thing, I felt strongly that I wanted to say thank you for the professional way from beginning to end, that you dealt with us. On the day, nothing was too much trouble and we were looked after very well. You were all so lovely. We had a fabulous day in such a wonderful place.

    Superb

    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.

    Amazing and wonderful experience

    My husband and I recenly held our wedding ceremony and reception at Hylands House. It was the most amazing and wonderful experience. We planned the whole wedding from America and having never visited the house I was awestruck by the beauty of the interior rooms and the magnificence of its present state. Staff were cheerful, helpful and professional prior to and during the wedding. The wedding coordinator always answered my countless e-mails quickly and put me at ease about planning my wedding from nearly 3500 miles away. Our wedding day could not have gone more smoothly. The Hylands staff were incredibly accomodating, professional and simply wonderful. The attention given made up feel as though our wedding was the only event on the calender.

    Amazing - thank you to everyone at Hylands

    Our daugthers wedding was held at Hylands House on 2nd August 2008. It went off so well and was throughly enjoyed by all. Much of it was due to the helpful staff at Hylands from front line staff to those working behind the scenes. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The house is absolutely stunning.
