Funeral receptions at the Rendezvous Hotel

Funeral receptions in Skipton

Our business is built upon two words: ‘customer service’. Providing exceptional customer service is something we take extremely seriously and as a result, our funeral reception service is designed to help make a very difficult time just a little bit easier.

We have a team of dedicated staff who are highly experienced in arranging funeral receptions for guests who are trying to cope during a very sad time. Choosing to hold an after-funeral reception at the Rendezvous Hotel, rather than at home, can help to alleviate some of the stress. We’ll work closely with you to provide you with support and guidance whilst arranging the reception and on the day of the funeral itself. With this in mind, we have designed our own Funeral Charter which covers all aspects including:

  • an experienced member of staff will be on hand to meet and greet your funeral party, with a manager on duty to look after your guests
  • we provide a wide range of catering options to suit all requirements and budgets
  • we know that it can be difficult to predict exact numbers and so our chefs will be available to provide extra food if required
  • we can help you organise any additional details you’d like, such as music, coloured table linen, favourite food dishes or special menus, fresh flowers for the tables
  • our spacious hospitality lounge is ideal for use as a meeting point before the funeral service, whilst guests may use our car park to leave their vehicles

Contact us for further information

We understand that planning a funeral is never easy. However our experienced, sympathetic team will work closely with you to ensure that everything is goes smoothly, providing you with reassurance during the arrangements and on the day of the funeral.

To find out more, please get in touch by calling 01756 700100 or download our funeral reception brochure.
