Wedding Reception Venue to Hire

Hilden Lodge is not a licensed wedding venue but we can host small wedding receptions or parties. We would be delighted to cater for all of your wedding guests whether they are staying the night or just coming for the party. We have stylish dining and bar areas for either seated meals or standing buffet style receptions. There is a decked area outside for your guests to use during the summer months.

We can tailor a fabulous wedding breakfast menu for you and your guests if you would like a sit down meal. See a sample of some of our menu options here.

We can offer flexible breakfast times, late check out, licensed bar, evening meals, Hot & Cold Buffets and Afternoon Teas.

Please see a review from a recent bride

Trip Advisor September 2014 David and Sally went out of their way from the week before our arrival to make the weekend stay one of minimal fuss, and great comfort. I chose the Hilden Lodge because of its proximity, and small number of rooms, to my wedding venues. Sally made sure to be aware of which guests were pre-booked and associated with the wedding, and took care of all the little details to make me feel warmly welcomed. My maid of honour and I stayed in the lovely Kauto Star room for the first night, which was extremely comfortable.  

David made sure to look after me at the bar before dinner, and opened up breakfast earlier on the Saturday to accommodate our eating needs before all the team arrived to tizzy us into bridal glory. Sally was on hand to let me know who was arriving, and very patient with the foot traffic.

My husband and I were delighted to be placed in the Arkle suite downstairs, complete with beautiful flowers, to celebrate our marriage, and it was perfect. Loved the little outdoor area. We were warmly greeted by a reserved table with confetti sprinkled on top and a congratulatory card at breakfast, where David kindly made Darran a sausage sandwich and excelled with the Hilden Special (choose the scrambled eggs, for sure) for me. There were plenty of cold breakfast options, the fruit salad was delicious, coffee hot, and Sally was very helpful with taking care of the tea addiction from which my bridesman suffers.
We could not have asked for a friendlier couple to have taken care of me and my friends, including some guests from abroad, in the preparation period, and then all of us in the aftermath.
