  • I had my wedding ceremony and reception here on NYE. The help and service I received was fantastic. In the chaotic lead up to the big day, Anna and Natali were very calm, and kept in contact with me. They were willing to go above and beyond to help us prepare the day prior which certainly made that experience a lot easier. On the night, all staff were great but Russell and Tash stood out and were even noted by my guests. The food was exceptional and the club itself looked immaculate. a fantastic experience for us and our guests.
  • Father Christmas day was terrific & GM & Staff r first class
