I cannot recommend Hillstone enough as a wedding venue. We chose to have our recent wedding ceremony and reception at Hillstone and couldn’t have been happier with how our day turned out. The venue is spectacular, with two beautiful separate ceremony and reception locations to cater for any size wedding. The staff are helpful, polite and professional, and the food is superb. All our guests had fun, left happy and with full bellies. Their wedding coordinator team are on top of everything and were helpful in collaborating all our vendors in the lead up to our wedding, as well as on the big day. Everything ran smoothly and to plan. Thankyou so much Hillstone team.

Simply the best. We planned our wedding at Hillstone from Sydney after changing from a previous venue. Our wedding was 6 months away and we wanted someplace tranquil where both us and our guests could relax, unwind and dance the night away. Hillstone had no hidden costs or agendas with quality service and a high regard for client relations. We were taken care of from our very first phone call. Within the day, we had fully personalised brochures and a quote with all costs. They immediately showed care, answered all of questions promptly and showed a genuine interest in helping us plan our day. In the two months prior, Jess worked seamlessly to schedule our whole day from the moment our feet touched the ground to when we said our goodbyes to our guests. We cannot thank them enough. We have added a more detailed review on their Facebook page.

The staff at Hillstone were incredibly helpful and friendly. They went above and beyond to ensure that every detail was taken care of, making the entire process smooth and stress-free. Their professionalism and warmth made us feel truly special and well-supported throughout our planning and on the big day. The food was phenomenal! Our guests are still raving about the delicious and beautifully presented dishes. The culinary team at Hillstone did an exceptional job of crafting a menu that was both elegant and satisfying. The venue itself is absolutely stunning. The beautiful surroundings provided the perfect backdrop for our ceremony and reception. Every corner of Hillstone is meticulously maintained, and the ambiance is both charming and sophisticated. It was the ideal setting for our dream wedding.
