Wharfedale Suite – up to 120 in cabaret-style and Winterburn Suite – up to 80 in cabaret-style).

Birthdays at the Rendezvous

The Rendezvous Hotel is an ideal place to celebrate a special occasion. With a choice of private dining rooms suitable for accommodating up to 300 guests and lounge area over two floors is available for drinks receptions.

The Conservatory Restaurant is ideal for lunch time parties for up to 80 guests, and the Malham Suite is ideal for larger day or evening parties for up to 300. We also have a selection of smaller private function rooms; please see our Conferences page.

If you’re looking for entertainment, cake or decorations, this can also be arranged. Please call to enquire about available options and prices.

Business Celebrations

Looking for a first class venue to host your next business function, product launch, networking event, retirement party or Christmas party….one that is fresh and outside of the boardroom? Then look no further! Our aim is to commit ourselves to providing high quality functions and special events, our team along with our warm and friendly service, can provide the total event solution to ensure your event is remembered as an absolute success.

We can accommodate award ceremonies, business anniversaries and retirement parties.


You only have one chance at launching your new product and on a day like that every little detail could decide over a failure or success. Your product launch day could be very stressful but it doesn’t have to be with help from our events team.

We understand that not only do you want the product you are presenting to be as close to perfection as possible, but that the setting and location where you conduct your ‘big reveal’ needs to be held to the same, equally high standards, and the importance of this cannot be understated.

Any of our rooms would be perfect for a product launch but for an added effect our Malham Suite (ballroom) would be the best – high celling, 3123 sq ft space, moveable stage, air conditioning, natural daylight and chandeliers suspended below a marque… you cannot ask for more.

Christening Venues Skipton

Christenings at the Rendezvous

The Rendezvous Hotel is a wonderful setting to hold your Christening or Naming Ceremony.

All of us at The Rendezvous would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you on the Birth of your child and extend our very best wishes for your future.

We offer a unique and comfortable private dining area for your guests to enjoy after a traditional Christening at Church or Naming Ceremony. The Rendezvous also holds a full Civil License making it perfect civil wedding ceremonies.

Often a more informal style of catering is preferred for such events. With this in mind, our team of chefs have created a selection of buffets and other light menus. As with all of our packages, these menus are meant only as a guide and we will gladly alter your selected menu to suit your individual requirements. If you would prefer a different style of menu simply give us a call. It is often more suitable to cater for children’s tastes separately. We have buffet menu which can be served in addition to the main selection.

A private bar for your guests is available in the Wharfedale and Malham Suite.

The costs of each celebration vary, as they are tailor-made to your individual needs.
Please give us a call anytime if you would like to view the hotel facilities.


I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help in organising the gathering to celebrate our son’s christening on Sunday.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the day went without a hitch.

I would definitely consider holding events at the Rendezvous in the future and would certainly recommend to others.

Thank you once again,
Catherine Thornton

Reunions at the Rendezvous

How do you get the entire family together and keep them happy with plenty of activities for every age? You take them to Skipton!

Family reunions at The Rendezvous Hotel give you the chance to spend quality time together while giving everyone the space to do what they love. Children and adults can enjoy warm water of our swimming pool while their older siblings could enjoy the pool table and larger hospitality lounge where they can get some space away from the parents. All our facilities give grown-ups time alone to enjoy sauna, steam room, whirlpool bath or few social drinks in the bar. If this is not enough you can take advantage of all that Skipton has to offer, like canal boat trips perfect for all ages or Skipton Castle with its history and kids friendly activities.

Our family friendly hotel is the perfect way to please everyone in the family, because sometimes you have to get away to get closer together.
