Excellent wedding venue
By Riding Heilds, on 27 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 30 Oct 2017
Myself and my fiancee were recently married at The Old Lodge Malton. Beautiful venue with extremely attentive staff who delivered a perfect, seamless performance.
We had a small wedding party of around 27. Some of the party were housed in The Old Lodgings which is a separate house just outside the grounds. The house was very well finished and provided a nice private setting for guest to relax and prepare for the day.
Once the wedding day was up on us we felt all the staff were focused on us and throughout the day and evening we pretty much had the building and grounds to ourselves which was great, especially with a number of children running around the grounds.
Nicola (the wedding coordinator) was present at the hotel the whole time we were there and despite the demands placed on her she, along with her staff, maintained their sense of humour and professionalism throughout.

Just stayed at this lovely venue for my Son’s wedding. The staff were very helpful, relaxed and attentive. The bedrooms were of a high standard and the function room and grounds perfect. The food was very good and the drinks were reasonably priced, I would highly recommend this Old Lodge and look forward to staying again.
My nephews wedding

We stayed 2 nights at The Old Lodge. The room was magnificent with views across the grounds and an impressive 4 poster bed, with luxurious bedding and an ensuite with top class toiletries and ample towels.
Breakfast was amazing with a display of fruit juices, cereals and fresh fruit and cheeses and pastries. The hot choices ranged from full English to smoked salmon on scrambled eggs or eggs Benedict with a constant supply of toast and tea or coffee. The dinner choice was varied, excellent and top class and was absolutely delicious.
Our comfort was their main concern and each person was treated as an individual and I cannot speak highly enough about the staff. The wedding went absolutely smoothly and the organization was brilliant and we will have the best memories always.
Perfect wedding venue

We got married here in March and it is the perfect wedding venue. Ceremony room was just right for our wedding vows, the gardens are lovely and the rooms just perfect. What made our day very special was not only our guests but the Old Lodge staff who are friendly, attentive and good fun. The wedding breakfast was also brilliant see separate review for that under the old lodge restaurant. Can't recommend enough.

No words can describe how wonderful The Old Lodge was as a venue for my daughter’s wedding. Nothing was too much, everything went smoothly and all the staff were brilliant. We had some noisy children and the staff were so understanding and helpful during the speeches and other times- thank you for that. Beautiful place, beautiful people who made our day so special – these words don’t do you all credit. Rooms are outstanding, breakfast perfect. An extraordinary experience.

I visited the old lodge 10/09/16 for my cousin's wedding, it was fantastic. Firstly The Old Lodge and grounds are beautiful, our room was fab with a well-stocked tea/coffee tray and lovely smelling toiletries in the bathroom. The food we had for the wedding breakfast was so tasty, piping hot and plenty of it, we struggled to finish the main course. The staff were great and nothing was too much trouble, special mention to Eileen who everyone fell in love with, she was so helpful and great with all is guests. A lovely little touch was in the ladies toilets were I found a well-stocked basket full of great products to freshen up during the day/night. The breakfast was lush, lots of it and lots of choices. The staff kept the tea, coffee and toast flowing while we waited for our cooked breakfast. All In all, we had a fantastic stay and I can honestly say I could not find anything to complain about. Well done to all the staff, the wedding was beautiful and we all had a great time. I'll defiantly be back for another stay . I cannot tell enough people how amazing The Old Lodge is.

As parents of the Bride we are posting a review to Thank everyone involved at the Lodge for providing us with the most memorable day we could have wished for. We had family and friends travelling from Cumbria, South Yorkshire and America, many of them booked for the weekend and had quite a good night on the Friday by all accounts! The Wedding Breakfast Hall was beautifully decked in pink and cream, tables set to perfection including all the little extras the couple had asked to be added (favours, glass charms, table names, balloons bubbles, etc). The meal was exactly as we knew it would be (having stayed before) perfectly cooked and presented.Our glasses were topped several times and everyone had the most lovely afternoon. In the evening we opted for a traditional buffet with added hot finger food and there was plenty for everyone. The disco was really good, we have some great footage of certain unnamed family members strutting their stuff! What a great evening which was rounded off with the most fantastic firework display in the grounds at the rear. Worth every penny! We stayed in Room 2 which had the comfiest bed, a huge quiet room on the ground floor.I think we almost filled the rooms and had lots of comments on how lovely the rooms were. Not many down for breakfast the next morning.! We all said our farewells and agreed the memories would live long. Finally as many have said, a special mention to Eileen.This lady is an asset to the Lodge and we can't Thank You enough for knowing exactly how to steer the proceedings to perfection.
We cant thank you all enough

Hi Tracey and Eileen,
I hope you are both well.
Apologies this is a little later than I intended but James and I can't thank you and all the staff at the Old Lodge enough for making our wedding day so perfect even with the weather. It took three days for my face to stop aching from all the smiling and the rest of my body from the dancing Mark did a great disco.
Everybody said how fantastic the whole day was from the decor to the food and the staff.
We can't thank you all enough and look forward to revisiting for more great food shortly :)
All our best from Mauritius.
James & Charlotte
From the very first moment I saw The Lodge I knew
By Angel Rhodes, on 18 Mar 2015
From the very first moment I saw the Old Lodge I knew that this would be the perfect venue for our small intimate wedding. The meetings I had with the wedding planner prior to the day made the lead up to this even more special – the attention to detail and their willingness to accommodate every request was just wonderful.
The day itself was just magical and all of our guests were overwhelmed by the beautiful grounds, attentive staff and the stunning interior. I would not hesitate to recommend this venue for wedding or any other occasion as it left us with picture perfect memories of our special day. I only wish I could do it again! We cannot wait to spend our first anniversary there. Thank you to all of the staff for everything they did for us.

Wedding day 7/8/14
Fantastic Wedding Venu
By Michael and Natalie, on 18 Mar 2015
We recently had our wedding reception at The Old Lodge, and we can’t thank the staff enough for the work they put in to make our special day a one to remember. The staff here never let you stress. Everything, no matter how big or small, is taken care of to ensure that everything is perfect. They have a passion for perfection and to ensure you have the best day of your life.
The planning stages were completely stress-free with every option being discussed.
On the day everything was perfect. As we arrived there was a log fire, a Christmas tree and the back door was open with snow from their snow machine falling over the doorway. This was truly a magical moment. Every guest was given VIP treatment. The grounds are a perfect setting for photographs.
The wedding breakfast was amazing. The pork was perfectly cooked. The desert melted in your mouth. Our guests with dietary restrictions were catered for without any issue. The evening buffet was equally as good.
The presentation of everything in the room where we had our reception was perfect. If we or any of our guests needed something, the staff took care of it. They were superb and certainly took the stress out of our big day so we could enjoy it to the full.
We’d also recommend the Sweetie Cart. This was a massive hit with our guest.
Our room for the night (Room 8) was a perfect place to unwind after a long tiring day.
All of our guests had a fantastic day at our wedding. The staff at The Old Lodge did a fantastic job of making our day special and perfect. We can’t thank them enough for the work they put into making our day special. Every little detail was taken care of.

The day went like a dream
By Sarah, on 23 Sep 2014
Firstly, I know I'll struggle to put into words how superb The Old Lodge were for our wedding but I'll try and provide a taster for you!
For a start Tracey, the wedding co-ordinater was very laid back and in control which is exactly what you want when you have your moments of frenzy in the run-up(!) to your wedding but Tracey was superb and very intuitive, going the extra mile on several of our requests, in particular, liaising with the chef and wine suppliers to help us choose our menu and drink options for the day.
The actual day went like a dream and although we did have excellent weather (almost too good! - fans were drafted in for the wedding b-fast!) The Old Lodge's beautiful grounds really came into their own and provided a perfect 17th century setting for our photographs, which look amazing by the way!!
What can I say about the staff at The Old Lodge: so attentive and accommodating and just plain lovely to me and my husband and all my guests. Thank you so much to The Old Lodge for making our special day one of, if not THE best day of our lives so far :)
I'll be glad to have an excuse to return each year for our Anniversary :)
Lots of love
You made every aspect an absolute pleasure
