We could not have asked for a better location or venue for our wedding. The ceremony location, reception venue, staff, food, and service were all fantastic. The Wedding Manager was truly fantastic and assisted me throughout the wedding journey. Nothing was overlooked and attention to detail was amazing.

September 2019

Kath & the team from the Retreat were 100% amazing from the day we first checked out the venue, right through to our wedding day. Kath went above and beyond to ensure our day ran perfectly, and kept us both calm even with the hiccups that occured along the way to our big day. I cannot express enough how thankful we were to have picked The Retreat. The ceremony & reception areas were perfect, the food and atmosphere just incredible. I will be singing their praises for years to come for making our day magical

May 2016

We loved the Retreat. Kath and Racheal coordinate the weddings and they were just amazing. They were able to help us identify what needed to be done and were also friendly and cheerful. I definitely recommend having your wedding here; ceremony and reception. The venue is gorgeous and you will have a great time.

What a beautiful review, i will pass this on to Kath and Rachael.

November 2019

It was so easy! Kath made sure we understood everything and made sure we weren't stressed on the day at all! She came up to us in the morning and suggested going inside and she made a very good call, because at 3PM it started pouring really hard! We had quite a small amount of guests, so they threw in as part of a contract for free a fairy drop light set up for us! Communication wise she would always answer me and would always make time for us! We rang on the day whether we could have a look around and even though she was super busy she still didn't rush us through the venue and really went out of her way from the very beginning to the very end!

Thank you for your review Kaitlyn! it was a pleasure working with you & Michael - what a beautiful couple - I wish you many blessings in your future together - Kath, your co-ordinator

October 2019

They went way out of their way so much as we had a surprise wedding, and they did a lot more than what they would normally. They constructed curtains so guests couldn't see the reception, and also had to plan everyone's rooms out so no one could see anything accidentally! Everything on the day went really well, and they just sorted out everything for us it was amazing! It was also very affordable with them, we even had accommodation included in the price for 60 guests!
