“This is where we had our wedding reception, it’s called the grand ballroom on tapleys hill road. Was so beautiful, they decorated how I wanted it and there was no corkage payment, had a massive dancefloor, and it was just so breath taking”

“We would like to thank you for the absolutely amazing reception for our wedding on December 28th. The food and service was top quality and I have received nothing but excellent comments from our family and friends who thoroughly enjoyed themselves and have called it  the best wedding ever!  Particularly our guests from overseas have said the food, hospitality service and overall running of the night was incredible.  Also thank you for being so accommodating with our menu choices/changes – your help, advice, patience and professionalism leading up to the event and on the evening truly made us feel relaxed and reassured. ”

“Tomorrow marks the 1st Anniversary of our son James’ wedding with Rachelle. On June 16th 2012 the reception was held in your wonderful venue. It certainly creates an atmosphere at night with the swathes of material and lighting. Thanks for all you and your staff did to make it a comfortable and happy celebration”
John and Lyn Foley,
“I would just like to start by saying thankyou so much for making our wedding so perfect. All of our family and friends are still commenting on how amazing your venue was and how tasty the food was. The service that we received was above any of our expectations. We had just over 300 guests and everyone is saying how it was the best wedding that they have been to. The atmosphere in the room is just so magical and we will definately be recommending you. Don you were fantastic in the lead up and on the day and Fiona made sure all our needs were looked after. Nothing was too hard.”
Sara and Faraz Taji,
“From our arrival we were attended to by your very pleasant and efficient staff who brought around the trays of pre-dinner food for our enjoyment. Your staff excelled in every way and are a credit to your organisation. In addition to the excellent service, we were also greatly impressed with the quality of the food through the whole dinner. As you will gather, we were absolutely delighted with every aspect of our dining experience with you on Saturday night. Be assured, we will recommend your venue to others”
“Nearly 400 people at a fundraiser – would not take it anywhere else than the Grand Ballroom. Great food, great staff, great atmosphere. Donato, Mimi and Fiona bent over backwards to ensure we had what we wanted. They let us do what we wanted with a great financial result. Not one complaint from our guests”
