Here's what our clients have to say:

Hi Tracy, thank you so much for playing such a great role in our son’s party. We were happy with everything and the service too. Also received some lovely comments about how nice you were in managing everything on the night so thank you from all of us, Tracy. We will definitely recommend you to our families and friends. I am back at work and still haven’t recovered from the lack of sleep for the past 1.5 weeks trying to get everything ready right till the last minute. So glad it’s all done and dusted and everyone was happy and enjoyed everything from venue set up to the food especially the service. Again, thank you very much for hosting our party. Have a lovely week and God Bless you and your family, Tracy.

Hello Peta,
I hired the Bennett and Retreat Rooms on Saturday night for my daughters 21st Birthday. I wanted to send you an email to thank you and your staff for a great night, great food and a great room. In particular, Rachael was phenomenal. I could not have asked for more friendly assistance or service. She went out of her way on the night and in the lead-up and I am truly grateful. Can you please ensure Rachael is commended on a job well done and I will recommend your premises to family and friends in the future.

Hi Peta,
Thanks so much for all your help leading up to the Lifestart night on the 6th October- it was a roaring success! We had lots of comments around how wonderful the room looked, how people weren’t expecting it to look so spectacular! The staff were great and very patient- especially when setting up the room. The meals were lovely – I had several comments that the food was just beautiful. It was a great night, wonderful venue and terrific staff so thanks so much!

Corrina Aitken, Western Districts Metro Hockey Club

I have been flat out but wanted to take this time to let you know that I really appreciated all that you did in arranging for the whole process to run so smoothly. I thoroughly can only say that you are an asset to your employer. Having such a professional, well-organised person/team taking care of everything was just a wonderful experience. The stress levels were non-existent due to all the planning that you put behind my event. I know that everyone always wants to be made to feel special during these times, and you did this for my family and myself. I also appreciated the amount of communication you had with me, via email, phone and face to face meetings. I had a so much positive feedback from a number of the guests, and so many compliments on the beautiful food that evening. Als pass on my appreciation to your bar staff for their great service that night.

Hi Peta
I wish to let you know we all had a wonderful time last Saturday – everything went off without a hitch, and the main thing was that my mother absolutely enjoyed herself and that’s all I could really hope for….on behalf of my family and me, I’d to say THANK YOU so much for all your efforts and the efforts of the staff who were very accommodating and helpful. I had nothing but praise for the food, decorations of the tables and the venue as a whole, I would be more than happy to recommend you and the venue to anyone in my community.


Dear Peta,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and all the staff at St Marys Band Club for making the W.D.I.C.E. Men v Women Tournament held on the 15th July 2012 a great success. The room provided was excellent and the comments we received from the players was all positive. The service that we received from your staff could not be faulted. I hope we can look forward to continued association with you in the future.
