Amazing! Perfect in every way! Great location, staff, food and drink. We had a fantastic wedding at Sails couldn't have asked for a better venue.

Now this place is in a class of its own! We had a very small wedding so we booked the private dining room. The staff were magnificent, they went out of their way to make sure everyone was happy and comfortable. The staff complimented me on my dress (and meant it too!!!!! Every bride loves to hear that she picked the right dress hahaha) And took special care of my parents. The managers contacted me to make sure I was happy with the evening and even took the time to have a chat to me when I returned to the venue to have dinner with my parents. (I got a big hug from the wonderful manager Kohm).

Such a beautiful venue. Delicious food and wine. Staff were really helpful and friendly. Shelley was a great coordinator and had everything organised and made us feel at ease. No issue on the day when we had to move the ceremony inside. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone!

My husband and I grew up nearby and as soon as we walked in, we knew. A beautiful beach setting near home. Brooke the events manager was warm and welcoming and we felt like we were in very good hands. Well priced, delicious food, excellent service. Completely stunning space.

The venue was so lovely. We had a day time wedding with a cocktail party, which was easy. They were wonderful.
