Venue Reviews

REVIEW: For the last 4 years now we have used this venue for our Leadership off-site

"For the last four years we have been to this venue in Geelong for our Leadership off-site and I have to say that this has been a great venue, up until this year when we felt it had gone off a bit - mainly with the food. Whilst the staff are great, we did notice a drop in the standard of catering and F&B service this time around. However, our comments were gratefully received by staff and the hotel were keen to improve not just the conference package inclusions, but also the facilities and equipment for our next visit."

We truly appreciate the feedback and the relationship we have had with you over the past few years when you have held your conferences with us. We take on board your feedback which has been discussed with the Management Team to ensure that we continually improve.  We would like to welcome Rachel back to the hotel next year and not only have we extended credit towards her next event, but have reviewed our menu and catering options to be more consistent with her experience over previous years.

Fudge by Rich As always, absolutely delicious with amazing feedback from all who tried the product! Beautifully packaged up for us, delivery process fast and reliable, and Nicole couldn't have been more helpful in turning around such a large order on such short notice ensuring we had everything needed for the trade show... Think I have a new favourite flavour too, the Rocky Road is to die for!!

Novotel Sydney Brighton Beach

What a professional events team...

Novotel Sydney Brighton Beach "The events team at Novotel Sydney Brighton Beach are truly professionals at what they do. The organisation in particular of the banquets team - always so helpful and ensure that our seminars run smoothly. The only minor suggestion that I would make is more labels to indicate the types salads and sandwiches that are on offer on lunch buffets."

Suited our brief perfectly... staff could not do enough for us!

Rendezvous Grand Hotel Melbourne

Really good quality & great value... best external meeting venue in a while!

Rendezvous Grand Hotel Melbourne "The room was appropriately presented, with everything we had requested already in place. Morning tea and lunch were more than ample, and was 'yummy'! Really good quality and great value for money. One of the managers even said it’s been the best external meeting venue he’s been to in a while."


The venue, as well as the staff, location & atmosphere was second to none!

Dockside "We held our Staff Christmas party at Dockside this year - the venue, as well as the staff, location & atmosphere was second to none. From the moment I booked the venue, the service was fantastic. The event organiser kept in contact throughout the year, reminding when things needed to be done. Everything went smoothly on the night of the party, the food was amazing, the staff were excellent & the event manager on the night bent over backwards to help with...
