We are so happy with how everything turned out and are so glad we chose Hotel Realm. We had our reception in the North Hugh Courtyard and it looked absolutely stunning. The service was first class, the food was delicious, the staff were professional and attentive and Nicole and Michelle were extremely helpful and accommodating! We also had pre reception drinks at Ostani and stayed in the penthouse. All amazing! Our afternoon/night was pure joy and we have amazing memories.

Thank you Jessica! It was an absolute pleasure being able to help you plan your wedding and I am so glad to hear you had a wonderful wedding day. Michelle x

Michelle and her team were absolutely amazing! From the moment I enquired about holding our reception there, they were extremely helpful in answering all my questions. I had many changes due to COVID and ended up changing my whole wedding date. On the day of the wedding, everything was perfect! All my guests commented on how great the service was and how beautiful our venue was too. My guests also noted how calm I looked and I can only say its because I had nothing to worry about, our day was a success and I could not thank Michelle and her team enough for the amazing service they provided us. I 100% recommend holding your wedding at Hotel Realm!!!

Thank you Netta, I could not tell you how much this means to myself and the team. I am glad that we were able to pull together the wedding of your dreams in the middle of a pandemic and I am glad you had a wonderful wedding day. You looked absolutely stunning! I look forward to seeing you at the end of the year for your one year anniversary dinner. Michelle x

We held our wedding reception at Hotel Realm. It was an amazing venue with great staff who were very friendly and were very helpful to accomodate our needs prior to and during our reception. The inclusions in the wedding package were great. Thank you for ensuring our night went seamlessly. I would highly recommend.

18 Jan 2017

Everything went pretty smoothly however when we checked out we forgot the cake in the fridge of our room which they then threw out or ate then lied to us saying the cake wasn't in the fridge to begin with.

Food and Venue was included in this price. Food at the realm was amazing got to taste and pick everything, everyone loved the food.

14 Oct 2016

Room was nice. Hotel unorganized and forgot to give us our cake and other items from the wedding when we checked out. Was not impressed. Once in a lifetime cake that we will never get back or have our first anniversary with. Extremely disappointed, they fell short on multiple other things also.

30 Sep 2016

Wasn't the best service for my honeymoon and we got locked out while we went to breakfast because they cut off the room cards at 10am even though we had late check out. Lifts took forever and were out of order.

29 Jul 2016

They were absolutely fantastic!! Everything was such a smooth transition. The venue came together. We really didn't have to worry about organizing anything.

18 Mar 2016

Beautiful room, delicious breakfast !!!
