Cannot say 1 negative thing about this place. Anything and everything I wanted or needed I was given. The food was outstanding, the service was impeccable and the coordinator, Dan, is the best. He's definitely seasoned in this business and our night went off without a hitch thanks to him and the entire staff at Villanova Conference Center. The breakfast the morning after the wedding was delicious too. You can't beat the convenience factor of being able to walk to your room at the end of the reception. Highly recommend this venue for a wedding of 125-200 people.

We're extremely pleased that we choose to have our reception at the Montrose Mansion. Both my husband and I got ready at the mansion prior to the wedding. The guys got ready in the game room and the ladies got ready in the mansion. We had breakfast and lunch and it was so nice to get ready on location. Plus the mansion was so comfortable and we basically had access to the whole second floor, so we were able to spread out.
The cocktail hour was great. Everyone was able to spread out in all the rooms of the mansion and there definitely no shortage of Hors d'oeuvre. We got married in the beginning of December and the mansion was decorated for Christmas, which looked great. Because it was colder, the second bar was inside and I was worried about room, but we had a larger wedding and there was plenty of room. The dinning room looked great, and we had band which sounded great in that room. Also, we got many compliments on the food. Lisa did everything possible that night to make sure my husband and I had a great time. We didn't have to worry about a thing! I would definitely recommend the Montrose Mansion.

What a wonderful venue. Absolutely everything was taken care of! The planning was of course done in advance so all went smoothly. From the location(beautiful) to the food(excellent) to the wait staff(too polite) to the bar tenders(great) this place covered everything we wanted. They worked on all the details for us. The rooms in the conference center were perfect for our guests after the wedding, no getting on a bus to go back to a hotel. A full breakfast the next morning was available from the center at no additional cost. Wow, really? Something free!!! Love this place. Look around then go here, you will be impressed. ps ask about the game room for after the wedding.

We had an amazing experience at our wedding at Villanova. Emily was excellent to work with throughout the entire process and was very accomodating to all of our special requests. We had guests coming in from all over the country, had guests with specific handicap needs, and everyone went the extra mile. About 2 weeks before our wedding, we learned that Emily had taken another position and we would have a new coordinator, Dan. Obviously, we were a little nervous to have someone new but Dan and the whole team did a fantastic job.

We had the italian buffet for our rehearsal dinner which we had onsite, and the food was absolutely delicious and exceeded all of our expectations. The mansion is such a perfect place for the rehearsal dinner, it felt like we were in our house for the weekend. On the day of, everything went perfectly. Don and his team took care of every food and beverage need, from the drinks fo our bridal party when we got back for pictures after the ceremony to the last drink of the after party in the mansion. I would definitely recommend doing the after party in the mansion. We did our reception from 5p-10p and then went back to the mansion, which was a great way to be able to spend time with our guests who we didn't really get to talk to throughout the day. Lisa was on top of everything throughout the entire day and made sure we were taken care of at every step. At the end of the night, they had dinner, cake and champagne waiting for us in our room, which was the greatest way to end our wedding night. I would recommend VCC to anyone looking for a wedding reception on the main line. It doesn't look like much when you see it from the road or when you pull in, but once you go in to the mansion, and see the grounds behind, it's like a different place. The grounds are gorgeous, the rooms are very nice, and feels like a destination wedding since all of your guests can stay right onsite.

I cannot say enough good things about the team at VCC - they were an absolute dream. Since I live in NYC, throughout the wedding planning process I had to stay at the hotel several times and the staff truly became like family. Emily Emerson took care of our every need, was so patient despite constant questions and emails from my mom and me, and on the day of made sure everything ran smoothly. Also I'd like to recognize Lisa, who gave us an initial tour of VCC without an appointment, tended to us during our tasting and on the day of the wedding. She was so sweet and accommodating - ran to get any little thing we needed (Pepto, static spray...), and ensured we were eating, drinking and having fun. Additionally the beverage manager Don and all of the bartenders (including Mel), were fantastic.

In addition to the wonderful staff, the grounds and mansion are beautiful. Also, every guest commented how delicious the food was. Chef Paul created a duet entree that was not on the menu for us, and we loved it.

I'm sure there are a thousand things, big and small, I could highlight to show why VCC was the best possible place to have our wedding. But simply put, I don't believe you could be disappointed planning your big day with the VCC team.

I can't say enough good things about the Villanova Conference Center. Everything was perfect, the service was incredible (thank you Lisa!!), and the food was delicious. The Montrose Mansion is an amazing place to have the cocktail hour and it was great to have hotel accommodations right there for our out of town guests.
