We are so happy we held our wedding at Hotel Kurrajong, it was the perfect venue. Our ceremony and cocktail reception was held in the beautiful courtyard. Mickey the event coordinator was absolutely lovely and so organised, always prompt with getting back to me, nothing was ever too much. She was always able to put my mind at ease and answer any questions I had. The food was amazing, there was plenty of it! They have a large selection of drinks on offer and the bar staff make exceptional cocktails. We opted for the bar-tab over a drinks package which worked out really well for us to have the wider selection of drinks. We could not have asked for a better day, thank you to the entire Hotel Kurrajong team for making our day so special and absolutely stress-free, we were able to thoroughly enjoy our day!

Hi Clara, thank you for your time in sharing your wedding experience. It was a fabulous day all round, and we're delighted you were able to have the wedding of your dreams with us! We hope to welcome back you & your new hubby sometime in future :)

2 Apr 2022

Hotel Kurrajong is a beautiful and immaculate venue, with gorgeous architecture and decor for the reception that require no additional decorations to be provided to capture the beauty of the room. The beautiful courtyard and fountain is stunning and an amazing ceremony location, and they have great wet weather options as well. The food options were varied, with lots of options for all kinds of tastes, and the quality of the food was exceptional. The absolute best part about this venue though is the staff and coordinating team. Everything was organised amazingly by their event coordinator Mickey Catelin whose attention to detail and calm and relaxed manor made us feel completely safe and taken care of. She was really genuine in wanting to make it the best possible day for us and going above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect.

Hi Daniel, thank you so much for taking the time to share your wedding experience. It was a joy for Mickey & her team to work with you both to create your special day right down to the finer details. We are elated you had the most fabulous day with us, and wish you nothing but the best for your married life together :)

12 Mar 2022

Mickey and the team at Hotel Kurrajong were spectacular - engaging, accommodating and attentive - in helping us prepare and plan for our big day. Mickey in particular has a keen eye for detail, is approachable, organised and very attentive. We cannot thank her enough for the work that went into our wedding over the course of our 2 year engagement, fraught with COVID-related complications. The hotel itself is stunning and definitely worth considering for any couple seeking for a classic and sophisticated, yet cosy vibe for their wedding, with quality, affordable accommodation options on-site. Joe and Eunice

Hotel Kurrajong Canberra  

Joe & Eunice, I adored looking after you & getting to know you both throughout the wedding experience. I'm over the moon you were elated with your experience with us, and truly hope to welcome you back to Hotel Kurrajong Canberra in future. Hope you had the most fabulous honeymoon & I look forward to catching up soon - Mickey x

Hotel Kurrajong made our wedding day a breeze. Nothing was to hard, and everything flowed perfectly. The grounds are beautiful and we have some of the most special photos to capture the day. Our wedding was a stress free, fun party exactly as we wanted. Mickey took care of everything, and we had the most magical wedding day. I would recommend Hotel Kurrajong to anyone and everyone!

Hotel Kurrajong Canberra  

Congratulations, Amy! Your time for this review is much appreciated, and we are thrilled you had the most enjoyable experience with Mickey & her team. Congratulations on your next chapter together!

11 Mar 2022

We had our wedding at Hotel Kurrajong on the 11th of March 2022. Mickey the wedding manager was absolutely AMAZING! She made the whole process from booking the venue to helping with suppliers to every tiny random question we had. She was always available to speak to and is such a beautiful person. Our wedding day was the best! We had a cocktail style wedding in the courtyard and it was so beautiful we could not have asked for anything better!

Hotel Kurrajong Canberra  

Hi Amanda, this is a wonderful review and thank you for sharing your experience with us! We're delighted you had a beautiful day and that Mickey was able to accommodate your wishes and needs to ensure the most perfect day was delivered. Wishing you all the best :)

5 Mar 2022

Beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony venue with wet weather option close by ( we needed to utilise this unfortunately but the hotel kurrajong team quickly set us up indoors with minimal delays). Amazing, efficient and flexible events co-coordinator who really listened to what we wanted and adjusted the event order accordingly (multiple times). Delicious, gourmet and big portion meals-no one went hungry or thirsty. Good sized function room for reception with plenty of room for mingling and dancing. Definitely consider The Hotel Kurrajong as a historical yet classy modern wedding venue.

Hotel Kurrajong Canberra  

Hi Erin, thank you so much for your fantastic and flattering review. Mickey and the team loved working with you to create a wonderful day, and we're delighted this was mutual :)

4 Mar 2022

Communication with the supplier was very good, responsive, and they let us know when there would be delays in communication. Having no idea what we were doing, we were well guided throughout the process. There were a few little things that we felt we should have been told, and the venue wasn't flexible with drink choice, but apart from that the day ran smoothly and the event manager did a good job.

Hotel Kurrajong Canberra  

Congratulations on your recent special day with us, Kirsty! We'd love to discuss further should you be open to speaking with your Event Manager, and hope these elements did not impact your day. We're delighted you were happy with your Event Manager and communications for your wedding day and hope it was a wonderful start to your next chapter together.

26 Feb 2022

Mickey and the team were absolutely amazing in helping us plan our day at Hotel Kurrajong. They were attentive throughout our planning period and flexible with all the various changes we made. We loved how much was included in our wedding package for such an affordable price per person. Our wedding menu was delicious, with a few of our guests commenting on the flavour and quality of the dishes. Overall we couldn’t be happier with the Kurrajong, the grounds and rooms were beautiful and well maintained; and the staff were helpful and accommodating.

Hotel Kurrajong Canberra  

What a fantastic day your (official!) wedding day was, Cecilia! We were thrilled to work with you, and we wish you nothing but the best for your adventures together :)

1 Jan 2022

Amazing suits and the bridal suit is beautiful. Would totally stay there again. Room service was lovely although not to much of a menu. The beds are so comfy!!

Hotel Kurrajong Canberra  

Thanks, Lindsay! Congratulations again!

27 Nov 2021

It was an an absolute honor to have my wedding at Hotel Kurrajong! It was a wild ride having the wedding postponed due to Covid, however the venue was there for us every step of the way. The Events manager went above and beyond for us the entire time to ensure that we were going to be having our dream wedding, that everything would be set up how we wanted and for it to be everything we envisioned. I cannot fault my experience with her, she was extremely detail orientated, friendly and bubbly, and extremely professional! I cannot thank her enough for everything she did for us, even assisting us with certain tasks outside of her general job duties to ensure that we were fully satisfied. The ceremony/reception set up was perfect, the staff were so friendly, the food delicious, and the experience was phenomenal from start to finish.

Hotel Kurrajong Canberra  

Tiffany, thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us! Mickey and her team absolutely loved looking after you, and we're so glad you were finally able to have the wedding day of your dreams :)

26 Nov 2021

My partner and I had our covid / post-covid wedding at Hotel Kurrajong and it was great. Our original wedding unfortunately had to change but our plan B wedding went well at the same venue and with the same vendors. Mickey was really accomodating throughout the changes and throughout the ups and downs of covid restrictions. Hotel Kurrajong itself is a great intimate wedding venue both for ceremony and reception. The courtyard / terrace combo is great for a wedding and the rest of the hotel is classic art deco. We had most of our wedding guests stay at the hotel as well (since they were from interstate), making the whole experience seamless. Be sure to see the hotel for yourself.

Hotel Kurrajong Canberra  

Congratulations, Henry! It was our pleasure looking after you and your partner throughout the journey of your wedding. It was a beautiful day and we are thrilled for your next chapter together.

6 Nov 2021

Our wedding at Hotel Kurrajong was a dream. The venue is stunning and the food was delicious. Michaela is very supportive and the day went smoothly. This is an excellent wedding venue for someone who wants everything in one spot. We found planning a wedding here to be very simple as they are organised and the venue is so beautiful that it didn’t take much effort to bring together an incredible day.

Hotel Kurrajong Canberra  

Thank you ever so much for your kind words, Anneliese. We are thrilled you had your perfect day with us, it was a pleasure for Michaela and the team to play even a small part in your wedding.

4 Sep 2021

We recently had our wedding reception in the Courtyard at Hotel Kurrajong and we were beyond impressed from the event staff, venue, food, accommodation, lobby staff, bar staff, breakfast staff, chef & cooks were all so incredible and welcoming. I cannot forget to mention the attention to detail & care in all areas but especially in regards to allergies & catering requirements were second to none and of course all of Michaela's help, professionalism and enthusiasm was phenomenal. There were instances throughout our time at the Hotel where the staff went above & beyond what we needed/requested. It was gestures that we experienced that took it to another level. We wish we could do it all over again as it was such an incredible time! Thank you Michaela and the Hotel Kurrajong team!

Hotel Kurrajong Canberra  

Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Courtney! We are absolutely delighted you had the most fabulous day and experience with us and Michaela, it was their pleasure more than anything! :)

21 May 2021

We found Hotel Kurrajong during their Open Wedding Fair and chose it as our wedding place because it suited our budget for an intimate wedding with 25 people last 2021 May. Michaela (Mickey) who is the Conference and Events Manager ensured that we were well taken cared of during the process of planning until the day of our wedding <3 She patiently answered our questions and requests which was really helpful because it gave us much relief. We really felt that she was on-board to all our plans on what our wedding would look like. We can say that it was a huge success. Hotel Kurrajong exceeds our expectations from the garden courtyard, lunch at the terrace, delicious food and being on time. It was really a lovely wedding. We highly recommend this place. Thank you for making our wedding a memorable one <3

Hotel Kurrajong Canberra  

Hi Loren, we appreciate you taking the time to share your experience! It was a pleasure looking after your wedding day, and we're delighted it was everything you dreamt of and more! It was a spectacular day for us also and we wish you nothing but the best in married life and your future together.

20 May 2021

Mickey is great helping us organize the day. Wonderful food and drinks. Wonderful services. Great place for small weddings (and good for medium size wedding if the Kurrajong room is available).

Hotel Kurrajong Canberra  

We're so happy you enjoyed your wedding experience with us, we wish you all the best for your next chapter together :)
