    The day was lovely! Thanks for your services, the hall was a great place to have the reception. Please thank Alec for us, he was a great help on the day!

  • Mother of the Bride - 03/03/17

    Thank you so much for ensuring everything ran smoothly on Saturday for Toni and Rav. What a fantastic hall it is and very appropriate for such a function especially with the size of the families we had some very nice feedback from the guests! I look forward to attending another ceremony there again.

  • Toni Thandi - 04/02/17

    We were privileged to be the first couple to have our wedding ceremony in this beautiful venue. The staff were very friendly & Dani in particular did her very best to make the day run smoothly. From start to finish was a pleasant, stress free experience. We would highly recommend this venue for any occasion.
