Beautiful hotel with great staff :)
Fairfield Manor is a beautiful hotel, the recent refurb has really brought the main public areas up to date and looks amazing! The staff are always helpful and friendly, and the location is ideal especially if you have people travelling. There is lots of free parking, and the outside areas are gorgeous including a new pagoda for weddings. I've been working with Fairfield for over 10 years now and it has to be my favourite venue, its always a pleasure to visit.

I don’t often go away on my own and I found the staff at Fairfield Manor Hotel delightful, welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. The place is clean and warm. The Christmas Meal and buffet style breakfast, with a great choice of food, were delicious. The enormous bed was very comfortable. The spa facilities a short drive away were great. The jacuzzi is bliss. I thoroughly enjoyed my 24 hour stay at Fairfield Manor Hotel.

Frequently Asked Questions

Describe the best wedding that happened at Mercure York, Fairfield Manor Hotel?

We hosted a lovely summer wedding where the bride, groom and guests got to enjoy the best of both - the rustic styled indoor civil ceremony followed by reception drinks, photos and lawn games outside in the sunshine. After a few hours of fun outside the guests returned inside for a beautiful tailored three course meal with 10/10 speeches full of laughs and some tears of joy. The evening reception did not disappoint, our resident DJ worked their magic to keep the party going all night using a mix of the happy couples requested music, guest requests on the night and all the floor fillers around. All the guests and staff had a great time, there was a fabulous buzz in the air all day and night.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

To try not let yourself get overwhelmed with all the details and planning. Sure every detail is important, but start by writing different elements of your wedding down and putting them in priority order. Take your time and slowly focus on one element at a time. You will find that a lot of the smaller details will simply fall in line as you're working on some of the bigger details. One thing at a time, bit by bit.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Seeing couples not sticking to the traditions and making their wedding truly unique. One beautiful wedding we had simply let any of the guests stand up and say a few words about the happy couple after the dessert. Throwing out the pressure of conventional speeches and reliving the father of the bride who didn't feel comfortable standing in front of a large crowd speaking.
