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.

Wow, I just had the wedding day of my dreams and it is all thanks to the wonderful crew at the Villanova Conference Center. Everything was exactly as we planned and so much more! The service was amazing, everyone from the front desk, wait staff, bartenders, chefs, maintenance and of course the crew at the forefront Emily, Paul, and Lauren just went above and beyond to accommodate every little request. I felt like a true princess! My guests also commented on the friendly and efficient service that was provided, making everyone feel special.
The food was amazing and we were able to customize many parts of the dinner which made everything perfect!
The grounds were gorgeous, well kept and provided beautiful backdrops for photo/video.
The guest rooms are new, clean and the beds are so comfortable!
The after party in the game room was fun and a great way to close out the evening.
Brunch the next morning was delicious!
This is the venue for someone looking for more than just a 5 hour affair, rather a true estate wedding with history, natural beauty and the option for overnight accommodations creating a "destination" type feel yet only a short ride from Phila/S. Jersey.

Montrose Mansion/Villanova Conference Center

Tim Sweeney and all of the staff at the Villanova Conference Center were beyond helpful throughout our entire wedding weekend. We used all of the rooms at the hotel for our wedding guests and hosted our reception there.

The planning process was efficient and stress free, and the execution was perfect. We could not have asked for a better location - the grounds are beautiful, the mansion is charming, and it was so great that guests of our wedding were the only guests in the hotel.

The food was also fantastic. They were preparing food for 200, but everything from the appetizer and salad to the duo entree tasted like each plate was prepared individually and with great care. We really appreciated the an option for duo entree - which is markedly better than asking guests to choose their entree when RSVPing. We went with the short ribs and halibut and it was awesome.

The whole evening, as well as brunch on Sunday morning, ran flawlessly -- there were never lines at the bars during the reception and Tim kept everything going smoothly and on time. By the end of our reception the only thing missing was more time to keep the party going. Five months after our August wedding, we’re still getting compliments on the food and setting.

A million thanks to Tim and all of the kind staff at Villanova Conference Center,
Anne & Peter

Everyone was amazed at the hidden gem that is the Conference Center... the grounds, food, service, EVERYTHING went above adn beyond what we expected and was perfect. We blocked and booked all 50+ rooms so it was awesome having the entire place to ourselves... like a mini-resort. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff, who were so responsive and accomodating, both in the planning stages and the day of.

-We wanted a place that had some character and charm, and we definitely got both at the Mansion at the Villanova Conference Center. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous, they made a beautiful backdrop for our photos.
-The quality of food was important to us, but we wanted a buffet so people could mingle, dance, eat as much or as little as they wanted. They were able to deliver on both. The buffet was a great option for us, and the top notch spread was phenominal, complete with carving stations, and a flaming banannas foster stand for dessert!
-Our cake was exactly what we wanted, beautiful and delicious.
-The staff at the Conference Center are the most amazing people!! They made me, my husband, and our families feel so welcome, and comfortable. Tim, Paul, and Lisa bent over backwards to make sure we all had the most wonderful day. We are extremely lucky we found this venue, and so very grateful to all of the people there that made our wedding day the best day of our lives!

Tim Sweeney was there to help from start to finish with suggestions and ideas. He performed every duty with class and his staff is top notch. I had so many guests describe this place as one of the most beautiful places and how wonderful the food was. Everyone said it was by far one of the best receptions they had ever attended! I can not thank the staff enough for their overwhelming attentiveness and help on my special day!

I think the most important aspects of choosing a reception are location, beauty, ease of planning, and staff. The Montrose Mansion at the Villanova Conference Center gets high marks on all 3. Firstly, the reception site is located near 476 and 76 (two major Pennsylvania routes) and only minutes from several ceremony sites. Because my husband and I had met at our alma mater, Villanova University, we had our wedding at St. Thomas of Villanova. The Conference Center is literally less than 2 miles from campus thereby making the commute easy and short. In regards to the scenery of the location, do not be fooled by the main entrance. While the Villanova Conference Center (the hotel part of the reception site) is not exactly awe-inspiring, once you see the breathtaking mansion as well as the beautiful rolling acres, trees, and pond behind the mansion, you will literally fall head over heels. I was smitten with the reception site from the get go and was even more pleased with the location when I took my photographer there to preview the site before the wedding. He was literally captivated! In fact, he called it one of the most gorgeous locations he's shot on film. The ballroom (recently remodeled) is equally exquisite. One wall is completely floor to ceiling windows allowing you to view the gorgeous walkways, trees, and greenery outside. There is a decent size dance floor, plenty of space for tables (with elbow room!) and a great area for the band or dj to set up. Because of the unique packaging option, the conference center also includes the cake, delicious (and I do mean DELICIOUS) food, open bar, linens of your choice (so you can pick out those that match your color scheme), and numerous other options. This makes planning super easy since you check off a number of your vendors with one contract. On a side note, the cake which was provided by Dough Main Bakery was scrumptious! And beautifully decorated. I was so pleased when I saw it before the wedding and even more delighted when Rollie fed me my first bite. Talk about heavenly!

Finally, and this deserves its own paragraph, the staff was simply PHENOMENAL. I cannot tell you how gracious, hospitable, friendly, sweet, accommodating, wonderful, and all together outstanding every member of the staff was. From the women who ran the reception to the house keepers to superman Tim Sweeney (the wedding coordinator who literally takes care of everything even those one off random emails requesting a specialty cocktail or easles), everyone was beyond accommodating. They made my family and guests (about 99% who were from out of state and even as far as Ireland and England) feel completely welcome. They kept telling us how fun of a group we were and we felt the same about them. In fact, Alex, Paul, Tim, and Lisa (waitress extraordinaire who waits on you hand and foot on your big day - and I do mean hand and foot she even ran up to my hotel room and brought me my flip flops so I could shed my wedding heels!) were like family by the end of it all. They truly made you feel like you were the most important person(s) in their world - as you should feel on your wedding day. One of the staff even sewed up my cousin's cocktail dress in the bathroom when her halter strap broke during an intense round of dancing! These people gave 2000% and it shows. If for nothing else, I recommend the Montrose Mansion / Villanova Conference Center based solely on their ridiculously talented, caring, and wonderful staff!

We absolutely loved having our wedding reception at the Montrose Mansion at the Conference Center. My husband used to work there, and swears by the cleanliness of their kitchen and quality of their food--both of which were very apparent during our wedding. Tim Sweeney, the wedding coordinator, was awesome! He made sure every detail was covered, all the while keeping me, the bride, calm and collected!! We were told by all of our guests that it was one of the best weddings they have ever been to! The scenery is magnificent, as is the staff, who will go far above the call of duty to cater to us on our big day! We absolutely recommend this venue for anyone in the Philadelphia area!

Everything at the Villanova Conference Center/Montrose Mansion was amazing! Over half of our wedding guests were from out of town and even though some difficulty initially occurred in booking rooms, it was remedied as soon as Tim was made aware. The staff was amazing and so accommodating to all of our guests. This venue is not only beautiful, but for the price, so many things are included (the cake, alcohol, food, linens/tables/chairs, etc). Tim even made recommendations for the DJ (who also did a wonderful job!). Compared to what I see other brides go through, my wedding planning was made so much easier by having a majority of essentials lumped into the package. The day of the wedding went flawlessly, and especially Tim and Paul did a stand out job of making sure my husband and I were well taken care of the whole time. They even helped us set up a next day brunch for our family. I would highly, highly recommend this venue to anyone that is looking to have a beautiful wedding and working with some really great people!

The Villanova Conference Center is quite a hidden gem! I never would have thought to look there, but did at my now husband's suggestion. I loved the site for three reasons. First, the mansion setting. So many wedding receptions are held in country clubs, and they all tend to blend together. I thought this unique space would help mine stand out. Second, the grounds are GORGEOUS!!! And they have a nice patio with a bar that was perfect for my June wedding. And third, I could go before the ceremony to get ready and take photos. A great perk, since the whole place is absolutely beautiful. Luckily, the food was also delicious, and there was so much of it. I had the mini cheesesteak bar, which was a huge hit with the guests. And everyone was very helpful and easy to work with. Last but not least, at the end of the night it was so convenient to have the hotel right there onsite.

Erin and Paul did a fantastic job of ensuring our day was perfect. Our guests are still commenting on how delicious the filet was and so tender you can cut it with a fork. The cheesesteak station during cocktail hour was another huge hit!! We had a lot of traditions and customs during the reception. Erin spent time understanding what the traditions were and made sure they were included. Not only did Erin correspond with me (& both moms) but she also spoke to the other vendors. This made everything go smoothly that day.

We also got married on the hottest day in a long time. Their engineer came in that weekend and controlled portable air conditioners around the hotel. Several guests stayed over and thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast too.

The only reason I did not give a perfect score was because the beginning planning stages were a little crazy. They were transitioning wedding planners. In the end, it was a wedding that all of family and friends will remember for a lifetime.

As everyone esle said the grounds and the mansion is to dead for. I was married in May and we booked over a year in advanced. They book up really quickly. We had rough patches in the beginning with trying to get in touch with the wedding coordinator and was a little worried about our day because it took soo long for him to get back to us and such. But within 6 months before our wedding, they were on task. The tasting was so great. At the tasting you get to invite other member and it is held in their formal dinner room with just the wedding party or/and parents, no other wedding couples are there. We also had the rehearsal dinner there which was a cook out on the bottom level of the hotel. The food was great again and everything went very smoothly. After the rehearsal dinner everyone went to the gameroom for the bar, hang out and catch up with other relatives. As for the hotel, we had some trouble with getting an exact number of room that were blocked under our wedding party. It took a long time for people to be checked in (Probably because it was before 3 pm) and even one of the family member had to go to another hotel because they over booked. However, Villanova Conference Center paid for that family members hotel. Some of the hotel room say that it is a queen size bed but really it's a full size. Even though the hotel had some issues it was still really nice to have it in the same place as the reception and wedding. The Ceremony was beautiful and went off perfectly and the reception was great too! Everyone kept saying how the Villanova Conference Center was so classy and the food is the best they've had at a wedding for a long time. The cake is included in the package but from a bakery that Villanova Conference Center affiliates with. It was so good that everyone wanted to take home a piece plus it looked beatiful! Also on the wedding day Lisa the head waitress is there to service you with making sure you eat, putting your flowers in water and even helping you with your shoes. I recommend the Villanova Center for your wedding and reception! It is something I will never forget and I am glad they could help me with it.

I am so glad I had my wedding here! It had the exact look and feel that I wanted. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous and I fell in love with it more each time I went for a visit. We had a little trouble in the beginning with the normal wedding coordinator. He would tell us one thing and then when we'd get the contract it would say something different. He was also very difficult to get in touch with. We decided to book but only because we worked with the assistant general manager, Paul, instead of the regular coordinator. Paul was absolutely fantastic. He was so accommodating and did a phenominal job with everything. The food was wonderful as well and we got so much of it. Some of my guests thought there was not going to be a dinner because of the amount of hor dearves there were at cocktail hour, but we had a 4 course meal waiting for them. We had a waitress personally serving the two of us all night. She brought everything to the room after the wedding and even had a meal waiting for us as soon as we got back to the room. I am so glad I had my wedding here despite the trouble we had in the beginning. It's too bad they are not allowing ceremonies any longer because ours was so beautiful on the steps of the mansion.

First and foremost, the service was out of this world. Every one of our 150 guests felt special and well attended to. The entire staff is extremely nice and easy to work with, but the most notable person is Lisa, who spent the whole day with the bridal party, insuring that our day was perfect and we had everything we needed. She made sure every need was attended to from food to fun. She even offered to bustle my dress! A-MAZING. The venue itself is so very pretty, and spacious. The cocktail hour takes place in the mansion, with the option of a piano and an outdoor that dons acres of trees with beautiful lights and romantic ambiance. Villanova conference center has been doing events for so many years, that there are virtually no kinks to be worked out. Everything went as smoothly as you could hope for. There was plenty of space to dance, walk around, sit, talk, etc. The food was very good; especially the "stations" that come with some packages. We had a cheese steak stand and a bananas foster dessert station. Those were big hits! We LOVED that everything was done on site (food, alcohol, linens, etc.), it just took a lot of the extras little things off our list, and everything looked spectacular. Another great feature, at least for our guests, were that there are hotels on site. This was so convenient, and our guest could come and go from the reception to the room as they pleased. We had a lot of out-of-towners, so this was a great bonus for us. The rooms are a little out dated, but the attention to our guests was outstanding. They were very accommodating and helpful. For example, our grandfather broke his watch, and the hotel made sure that it was sent out and fixed for him, in time for our wedding! Overall, we were extremely happy with the Villanova Conference Center as our reception venue, and I I would recommend it to others, without a doubt!

This is a remarkably beautiful site that typically does events at a much higher cost than what we could afford. Tim worked with us to meet our budget, while still offering many of the perks that come with a typical wedding package. In fact, we were orchestrating a non-typical event, using spaces differently than is customary for the site, and we selected a spot on their property where ceremonies had not occurred in the past. While there were a few mistakes along the way, and the day-of readiness needed some support from my friends, we were overjoyed with the final production. Oh, and for ARAMARK food, the chef did a fantastic job providing a meal that people talked about for months. Delicious!
