Words fail me
Venue Service

By Linda Thompson, on 15 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Sep 2018

Words are actually failing me. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day so incredibly special and memorable. Right from Day 1, Nicola has been professional, efficient, meticulous, warm and thoughtful. Nothing has been too much trouble and she listened to my every demand. The whole team at the Lodge are a credit to the owners and we cannot fault the level of service. You made the room look superb and exceeded my expectations-it looked absolutely fantastic and again your attention to detail was outstanding. I must thank you for bringing breakfast to myself, my helpers and also to a very nervous Ian and his son-that really did help. The whole day ran so smoothly and I as the Bride, had no worries at all-everything just fell in to place-and that was down to Nicola. And even breakfast on Sunday morning was a joy. So, all in all, you made our wedding day the best it could possibly be. With warmest regards Linda and Ian

My daughter and her girlfriend had a beautiful reception st the Old Lodge in mid July 2018. The venue is fabulous lovely well tended gardens with nice seating areas. Nice rooms in the main building and excellent accommodation in the Old lodgings next door. The room for the reception was beautifully laid out. The staff were very attentive and professional. Special thanks to Nicola the wedding planner who worked tirelessly to make this a beautiful day.

The best wedding venue thanks to amazing staff
Venue Service

By Charlotte Ellis, on 22 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 14 Jul 2018

I cannot recommend the old lodge enough! All of the staff are lovely but Nicola Evans, wedding manager is absolutely amazing! Nothing we asked for as part of our wedding was too much and she really did bend over backwards to accommodate us. It was the best day ever and our family and friends had a lovely stay in this beautiful hotel.

June wedding
Venue Service

By Amber Waterton, on 22 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Jun 2018

Amazing wedding. From the first meeting with Nicola and Eileen we knew this was the place we wanted to celebrate our wedding. Throughout the months leading up to it, working full time and with a new Baby, I had no time to plan or do anything. But Nicola took care of everything. From her vision with how the room would look, leading me through the meal/drink choices, sorting out all the timings and then supporting me through the day itself I cannot thank her and the team enough. Nicola met with us numerous times before the wedding to discuss things and ensure I was happy with everything she had organised. I knew what I wanted but had no idea how to capture this. Nothing was too much trouble and I wasn’t made to feel an idiot for having no idea what I was doing! Nicola assured me she would make the place look amazing but nothing could prepare me for when I turned up on my wedding day.The red carpet arrival, beautiful grounds, smiling faces and most of all the most beautiful room styled and dressed by the team. It was better than anything I could have ever pictured.The food was absolutely incredible, piping hot, full of flavour and presented beautifully! The service was second to none and no one wanted for anything!The day was filled with love and laughter and the staff were absolutely perfect. We couldn’t have asked for a better day and that’s credit to the whole team at the old lodge. I cannot find the words to thank them enough! If you're considering the old lodge as a possibility for your wedding day DO IT! You will have the best time ever!

May wedding
Venue Service

By Pauline and Kevin Smith, on 23 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 26 May 2018

My daughter, Jessica, had her wedding at The Old Lodge on 26th May 2018 and I would like to express my thanks to the excellent staff for making it such a special and memorable occasion. The hotel and grounds are exceptional. My guests were so excited when they arrived to see such a beautiful hotel, lovely rooms and outstanding grounds. We were also lucky enough with the weather to enjoy the gardens to the fullest. The staff are amazing. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Indeed they went out of their way to ensure we had a fantastic time. I cannot say enough about Nicola and Eileen. They ensured the day ran perfectly and all the little details were attended to, keeping me sane and able to enjoy the day knowing that they had everything covered! The food was delicious and sincere thanks to all those in the kitchen. The staff on reception, in the bar and serving on the tables were lovely; very efficient and friendly. They also ensured that they looked after us on the Sunday too despite being very busy with other parties and the food and wine festival. And all the other staff that we did not necessarily come into direct contact but nevertheless are an important part of the team. The groundsmen, the people who keep the hotel and rooms clean etc. The staff are a true credit to the hotel and made it an exceptional experience. I can truly say we had the best wedding ever! I would highly recommend any one considering a wedding to look no further than The Old Lodge and indeed just for a few days stay. My husband and I are already looking forward to a return visit.

Excellent wedding venue
Venue Service

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.

Beautiful venue

By Gemma Cann, on 27 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Jul 2017

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
Venue Service

By Steve and Greig, on 27 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Jul 2017

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
Venue Service

By Pepper, on 27 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 10 Apr 2017

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.
