About Hockley Valley Resort

Hockley Valley Resort is a venue hosting weddings in the fresh mountain air of Mono, Ontario. Surrounded by jaw-dropping vistas with verdant, forest-covered slopes encircling the lodge, it is a nature-loving couple’s dream. The resort itself makes ample use of such stunning environs, with landscaped gardens and rooms that are built to capitalize on the area’s mountain views. Though the venue offers an escape to the peace of the country, it is nevertheless easily reached via a short drive from Toronto.

Facilities and Capacity

Hockley Valley Resort offers couples a wealth of choice when planning their big day, with three distinct venue choices available. The most grand of these is the Montclair Ballroom, which can comfortably host parties of up to 350 guests. Elegant chandeliers hang from its high-raised ceilings, and the room can be laid out in different configurations depending on a to-be-weds’ needs. This adaptability allows couples to host their big day all in one setting should they wish, thus making the planning process that much easier. For a smaller affair, the Aida Ballroom is a great choice with a capacity of up to 140. Its French doors welcoming in ample natural light, and open out to a private patio that is ideal for an alfresco cocktail party. Restaurant 85 welcome parties of 170, for a night of fine dining and toasts made to love. Elsewhere on the property, couples are presented with several outdoor venue sites such as the Montclair patio and the Organic Garden. These tented areas are ideal for those who wish to take advantage of this region’s supreme natural beauty.

Services Offered

As an inclusive resort, the property can offer couples everything they need to celebrate their big day and much more. Indeed, in the days surrounding the ceremony wedding parties can take to the slopes for a day of skiing or, in the summer, enjoy a few rounds of golf. The staff is happy to help to-be-weds organize their special day and can provide access to furniture rentals as well as audio equipment.

Cuisine

The catering offered by Hockley Valley Resort focuses on farm-to-table dining using ingredients from the estate’s own organic farm. The kitchen team can customize their offerings to suit each party’s individual tastes. Guest will enjoy dishes such as Alberta Rack of Lamb or Tender Beef Wellington.

    Great wedding with some tips for future brides/grooms

    Overall, we had a great day at Hockley Valley. The venue is gorgeous and good value for the price. Hockley was very flexible during COVID-19 for our wedding during COVID on October 16, 2020. Kendra and the banquet hall staff were excellent to work with and they tried to be accommodating throughout. The Aida Ballroom is lovely and Montclair Patio is gorgeous. The grounds are gorgeous during the autumn for a wedding. My main complaints are with the hotel. A few tips:

    1) Make sure you have adequate help for decor set up and take down, as Hockley generally only provides 1 hour prior to the ceremony for set up. We got a bit extra time due to COVID-19 (there was a bit more availability on our Friday day), but we had a lot of custom intricate decor with the arch, lanterns with florals, candles, etc. and hired a professional decorator and florist team to assist. We wouldn't have been able to do it otherwise in 1 hour or less. Our bridal party was busy getting ready and I wouldn't leave it to acquaintances to assist with, especially if it's during COVID-19. Hire professionals even just for setup because you will need it! I saw a few people mentioned that they were grateful for the help. Hockley will help with setting up chairs, tables for the reception but any custom decor we trusted to our team to ensure it was properly done as they don't have the time to do anything much more.

    2) We were given the wrong room. We specifically wanted the bridal suite for our wedding (then again, who doesn't) but I think because of the date change due to COVID-19, we were given a corporate suite instead. My husband, the groom, was given a room that was quite crappy -- the shower didn't work, the coffee maker didn't work, so he had to switch rooms the day of the wedding!! We didn't get much more than an apology well after the wedding day, although that is something. But seeing other reviews saying they got a welcome basket and complimentary wine, etc. - we didn't even get a glass of water or wine in our fridge, it was completely bare -- do NOT expect them to go above and beyond in any way with the hotel, especially during COVID-19.

    3) This relates to the above. If you want any leniency during check in or check out, don't expect it. The day after our wedding day, some family came by our bridal suite to chat and drop off gifts (we couldn't do the typical breakfast get-together due to COVID-19) and when I asked for an extra 30 minutes check out as we had a TON of stuff to remove such as my wedding dress, gifts, etc., the hotel staff were very rude in saying I had 20 minutes max and that was it. This made no sense as due to COVID-19, I was advised (and told all my guests in writing a week before the wedding) that their rooms would be left empty before and after for 24-48 hours. However, this was clearly NOT true as they said I had to be out within 20 minutes max, as they would be brining in new guests soon after! Obviously after cleaning but this didn't provide a ton of comfort to know the information we were all provided wasn't true. My family had to scramble to get me a Dollie (they offered zero assistance here), to get out ASAP. After spending a ton of money on my wedding here, I definitely didn't feel any extra effort or attention. I wasn't even asked upon check out if I enjoyed my stay, basically just viewed as a complete number. It's obvious that Hockley prefers their business/golf clientele unfortunately, so if you are looking for any above & beyond experience on your wedding day, I'd recommend nearby hotels or spas for that. I certainly didn't feel that way.

    3) Don't order anything from the restaurant the day of your wedding. The groomsmen, my husband and some guests went down to Restaurant 85 for lunch the day of the wedding and were left wondering if something was wrong with the Kitchen, they took over an hour to get a simple sandwich or burger and my husband ended up having to take his burger to go because he was walking down the aisle within 30 minutes at that point. I luckily just got a fruit/cheese platter and took it upstairs to my suite so the girls were fine, but I wouldn't depend on restaurant service the day of your wedding if you are pressed for time. They will not show any courtesy to you the day of your wedding to ensure that your meal comes quickly, etc.

    Overall, Aida and Montclair was lovely and I don't have any regrets about that. The actual hotel booking, in retrospect, wasn't the best but I'd recommend you CALL and ensure the bridal suite is actually what you are getting along with a good suite for the groomsmen as well. :)

    Amazing!!!

    Hockley Valley was the first and only venue my husband and I looked at when planning our wedding. We fell in love with it right away. We had a lot of out of town people coming in, so to make it easier we wanted our entire day at one location. Hockley made our dream happen.
    We worked with Kendra throughout our wedding planning process and she was great! Hockley was very flexible in terms of menu, room accommodations, etc. Their food is AMAZING! We still get compliments on how great the food was!!

    We had our Rehearsal dinner at the Adamo Winery the night before. It was an Italian family style dinner in their cellar room. It was absolutely delicious. Hockley provided a shuttle service to take us to and from so we did not have to worry about drivers. Our ceremony and reception the next day took place inside the Aida Ballroom. It was incredible! The staff were amazing and so attentive. The room and lounge area were perfect to have people space out throughout the evening.

    Wr had also booked the Executive Loft for the girls to space out and get ready in. The spa hair and makeup services there were fantastic. Sasha and Suzette were an amazing team and made all of us ladies look absolutely beautiful!

    Hockley even accommodated my husband and I when we came back two days after our wedding for our “Trash we the dress, ski photo shoot”. They truly go above and beyond for their customers.

    Thank you Kendra & Hockley Valley for making our special day absolutely perfect!!! ❤️

    Wonderful autumn wedding at beautiful Hockley Valley

    My husband and I were married in October 2019 at Hockley Valley Resort in Restaurant 85. It was a fantastic experience from beginning to end working with Hockley and hosting our wedding there. We had the pleasure of working with Kendra, Catering Sales & Event Manager. Kendra was with us every step of the way from our first meeting to seeing us both down the aisle! She made it so easy and ensured we were well informed of the process, knew when and how to make the best decisions for our special day. And answered every one of my one million questions!
    What I loved most about Hockley, was that we were able to make our wedding our own. We could customize where we wanted to and ensure this day was about us! We created a fantastic menu (which is still being talked about) paired with wine from their local winery. The staff were all amazing and super accommodating to us. Not to mention the breathtaking views and picture opportunities!
    I am so happy we celebrated our marriage at Hockley Valley Resort, it was exactly how to envisioned our special day. We cannot wait to go back to celebrate our anniversary!

    Fall wedding

    We booked about a year before our date after visiting twice and asking a million questions. We dealt with Eric and he was super nice, friendly, and flexible. A couple months before the wedding we emailed him trying to book our first planning meeting as we were told we would hear from him or Kendra, but heard from no one. We got an automatic reply that Eric was no longer with the company and to reach out to Kendra. It took a little longer for her to reply than we would have liked, but it worked out. Kendra was super friendly and helpful as well and we were in good hands with her.

    We were disappointed to find out they do not provide tastings and at no point was this brought to our attention. Even after mentioning that we would like to bring our parents to our tasting! We had dinner at The Cabin one night to try the food and felt reassured that the food would be great and it was! Our guests raved about the whole meal and the food at our rehearsal dinner was AMAZING. My in laws booked the private dining room off of Restaurant 85 (where our reception was) and ordered the Italian dinner. There was so much food and it was so good! They were completely amazing about dietary restrictions and even made my sister in law a last minute dinner during the reception when she announced she couldn't have dairy (we were unaware up til this point). The bartenders were amazing and had everyone's preferred drinks memorized right away which was pretty cool haha We loved having the lounge area by the bar because guests who didn't want to dance still felt part of the party.

    I had made bathroom baskets that got picked apart by the time cocktail hour started because random people who were not our guests were using the bathrooms. When we mentioned this to our coordinator she shrugged and said yeah, that happens. We were a little disappointed by that and wish Hockley would have monitored that as a random guy came out of the bathrooms and stood directly infront of us while our DJ was trying to introduce us into our reception *face palm*

    Our room block was for 13 rooms and we were able to extend that as people booked but by the time our guests started booking the hotel was already full outside of our block. Our guests were booking 5 months in advance! So heads up on that for guests. We didn't end up needing more rooms so it all worked out.

    We hired a coordinator from their preferred vendors list and she was wonderful! (Elegant Professionals). I definitely recommend a coordinator to set up the spaces as we weren't allowed into the ceremony space (Montclair Patio) until only an hour before the ceremony. We were allowed into the reception space (Restaurant 85) a little earlier than that, but we definitely would have been stressed setting to up ourselves with that timing.

    We asked about taking photos up on the ski hills as it was fall and the colours were really nice. We were allowed up there through an access road and those are our favorite photos! Highly recommend this if you can manage the timing!
    All in all it was a great day and our guests had a blast!

    Wonderful!

    Hockley valley was an incredible vender to work with, from our first contact to look at the venue and finalize everything up until our day of coordinator was introduced to us we had great communication with everyone. They helped us out with everything right down to the smallest detail and were very helpful in keeping my nerves down when it came to making sure everything was set up and ready to go. They had great rates for the room and the hotel rooms that were set aside for our guests were also at a reasonable cost as well! We recommend using them as your venue! 5 stars across the board!
