I just wanted to jot you a quick note to yourself and your team to say how perfect you made the day for my wife and myself.
The whole team was very professional and ready to help when ever we needed you. You helped my grandma who had limited mobility and the guests were very complimentary of their rooms and the hotel.
We would gladly recommend your hotel friends and family.
Thank you again for a wonderful day
The new Mr and Mrs Ashley
A really magnificent Wedding Day
By Alan & Anne Mark, on 08 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 15 Jul 2017
From our very first encounter with the Wedding Planner, Lauren Wilson, we felt that this is where we want our Wedding to take place. As well as managing the tasks within her role with confidence, efficiency and pleasant communication in every interaction with us, she conveyed her genuine desire to help us and ensure the day was exactly as WE wanted it to be. We felt cared for. Conversation with Lauren was always appropriately personal and professionally relaxed. Her clear communication to other teams and individuals brought about a smooth and well managed day. The implied promise "we would have nothing to worry about" was completely accurate.
The confidence we felt at the beginning was continued with a strong attitude from each member of staff we encountered; that they actually wanted to be positive, friendly and effective and make everything work for us.
The preparation of the Ballroom was exactly what we wanted and every detail we mentioned to Lewis was acted upon. Your reccommended DJ Mark Gedney was first class which really encouraged our guests' talent on the floor.
Each person who contributed to the day of wonderful memories created at "The Mercure Leeds Parkway" where nothing is too much trouble.
We send our warm thanks and sincere appreciation.
Mr & Mrs Alan & Anne Mark
Katherine and Damiens Wedding
By Kevin & Janet Wood, on 21 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 10 Jun 2017
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for a such well organised wedding, both Becki and now Lauren could not have done any more in making this a perfect day.
On the day, Lewis was very professional in how he organised the staff both in serving the food and the drinks at the bar.
We found the food and drink to be of a high standard.
The toastmaster, Richard also played a big part in the organising of the guests, we received a lot of positive comments about how he made the day that extra bit special.
You should be proud of your staff as they showed their commitment and professionalism. If I could ask you to thank everyone involved on our behalf, for making the day the best possible, from the people in the front line to the chef's, kitchen staff, bar staff and especially, Becki, Lauren and Lewis.
Finally, we would not hesitate to recommend your hotel and all it offers.

Katherine & Damien's Wedding - 10th June 2017
A massive thank you to you all!
By Damien and Katherine Brown, on 12 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 10 Jun 2017
'I cannot praise the staff enough, we had the full package Wedding. A big thank you to all involved on this journey. Becky, Lauren, Laura, Paul (for helping me unload the car!) and Lewis. I must praise Lewis for all his efforts and hard work on the night. Nothing was ever too much trouble and he was always checking if there was anything else we needed, he certainly went above and beyond.
I would certainly recommend this hotel, the staff in events are always on hand by email, phone call or meetings as we had frequent chats to make the day how we wanted and they have picked up ideas on the way.
The food was superb, cooked to perfection and generous servings.
All the guests commented on how nice the hotel and grounds are and the rooms are very nice.
A massive thank you to all'
Mr & Mrs Damien and Katherine Brown

Big thanks to everyone who helped.

Perfect day for us
By Emma and Charlie, on 05 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 12 Nov 2016
We held our wedding at The Parkway in Nov 2016 and could not be happier with how our day/evening went. As the bride I stayed the night before with some friends and the hotel could not have looked after me better, from 'fixing' my room key to the smooth transition to the bridal suite the following morning.
There were a number of dietary requirements across our guests, including dairy, gluten and nut allergies, which they dealt with really well adapting the menu accordingly and even cooked one person an entirely different meal to everyone else!
Becki was brilliant helping us organise everything and putting us at ease, whilst our host Rob was just wonderful on the day. He calmed me down before it all started and ensured everything happened as it should (even with a 4yr old chief bridesmaid to deal with!)
My husband and I could not have had a more perfect day for us, and would recommend The Parkway to any couple looking for somewhere to tie the knot.
Thank you to everyone for making it perfect for us!
We had the wedding of our dreams
By Chris and Natasha, on 26 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 05 Nov 2016
We had the wedding of our dreams. All the emails, phone calls and meeting and stress was worth it. Everything was amazing!
Becki organised things perfectly and Rob put the plans into action with precision.
We had a very clear vision of how we wanted the day to turn out and how we wanted things to look and we were blown away with how great everything was.
Thanks Becki for dealing with all our emails and being so understanding to our needs.
On the day rob and the rest of the staff were so attentive and organised with all our detailed plans. All our needs were met and nothing was too much trouble.
We will remember the day fondly for the rest of our lives and so will our family and friends
By Jenny and Steve, on 08 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 13 Aug 2016
We initially picked the Parkway because we liked the look and feel of the Ballroom on the Park. The staff were very friendly. The wedding planner was incredibly helpful during the planning of the wedding. She kept us really well informed and took all our ideas in her stride to help create the perfect day. She really gave structure to our ideas but without being pushy. Our host on the day took any worries completely out of our hands and made sure the whole day ran perfectly. She was the perfect host! The food was wonderful, served promptly and in plentiful supply. The formal bits were done with an appropriate amount of formality and then everyone could let their hair down for the party. Really recommend this venue!
Great Wedding day
By Daniel and Siobhan, on 16 May 2016
Our wedding day was perfect. The wedding manager answered our many questions before our big day and the wedding host ran everything perfect on our Wedding day.
We would recommend this hotel for a place to have a great wedding.
Fantastic Wedding venue
By Louise and Daniel, on 15 Apr 2016
Fantastic venue, food and service.
We couldn't have asked for anything more to make our day so special.
By Zainab, on 09 Mar 2016
A big Thank You to Becki the wedding planner, for all her help with the wedding preparations and the night itself, everyone really enjoyed themselves and loved the venue!
Also a big Thank you to Ernest as well, he made the party at the Park Side go so easily and he was superb!
By Gary and Laura, on 04 Mar 2016
Our wedding was fantastic. Becki our wedding planner supported us in preparing and planning our big day and helped minimise the stress and made the build up to our wedding enjoyable.
The host and staff at the hotel on the day were superb and couldn't do enough to make our wedding day perfect.
We look forward to coming back for our first year wedding anniversary.
