The Best Western York Pavilion is a beautiful country house nestled just outside of the city walls. During your stay you could go and catch a play at the nearby grand and dramatic Theatre Royal, or if you’re visiting during September we recommend you experience their annual gastronomic delight, the Food and Drink Festival. And with free parking in York’s city centre courtesy of the Best Western York Pavilion it’s time to have an adventure.
This hidden gem has had its share of famous guests over the years; The Beatles, George Formby and Gracie Fields have all stayed here and relaxed in the comfy armchairs with a drink or two beside the log fire.
Weddings are what the staff at The Best Western York Pavilion hotel prides themselves on. They have two suites available for you to say ‘I do’ in; the Sandy Richardson Suite that can host 90 guests, or for an intimate wedding the John Barry Suite can welcome 60 of your closest guests. And with an array of wedding packages suited to all sizes and budgets on offer there’s one that will be perfect for you and your partner.
Included in the packages are a red carpet welcome, reception drinks, three-course wedding breakfast, a sparkling toast, an evening buffet, a DJ from 7.30pm until midday and chair sashes to match your colour scheme.
We love their fabulous Intimate Wedding Package for 10-30 guests. This offer is brilliant for those who want to share their special day with a selected few loved ones, and the staff at The Best Western York Pavilion are fantastic at making sure that the atmosphere is magical and cosy for smaller celebrations.
You could get your guests acquainted with the hotel by holding your hen party here, The Best Western York Pavilion offers a lovely package for just £14.95 per head for a vintage inspired afternoon tea. It includes a round of dainty sandwiches, tea or coffee with homemade scones served with delicious clotted cream. And for an extra indulgence you and your hens also get to quaff a glass of pink Cava.
This could be a seperate hen party for older guests such as Nans, Aunties and other loved ones who may not want to go on a night out but still would like to help you celebrate the end of your single days. Also showing your bridal party and other guests around the hotel before the big day is a fab way for them to explore the venue and give you suggestions and ideas you may not have thought of for your wedding.
On Sunday 3rd April from 12-4pm The Best Western York Pavilion is holding a wonderful wedding open day. It’s your chance to have an informal look at the hotel, ask any questions and have a stroll around the grounds. The Sandy Richardson Suite will be all dressed up and there’s the opportunity to see in action the top quality service that all the staff provide.
