Susan was so prompt, helpful and responsive to all my questions from inquiry all the way through to our wedding day. Shae made sure all bases were covered in our final meeting, and made sure everything ran so smoothly on the night! We didn't have to think about anything, which was the goal! Thank you Susan and Shae. Absolutely loved all the inclusions in our package - cake plating, flowers, tea light candles, and a comprehensive beverage package. Everyone said that the food was amazing, and the whole night just ran so smoothly! We are so happy that we picked St Andrews for our reception.

The team at St Andrews Conservatory/The Pumphouse were amazing! Susan, Jasmin & Tony made the whole process so easy! It was great being able to go to the venue before we booked it and see what it looked like set up for other weddings and Susan was always able to answer all our questions. After our pre-wedding meeting with Jasmin I knew that she had everything under control and the night would run smoothly, which it did! Nothing was too much of a hassle for Jasmin on the night. We loved that our guests could pick their own meals and our guests had so many compliments about the food. Definitely glad we picked St Andrews!

We are so glad you picked us too Danielle!! Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review and share your experience with us! Your wedding was so beautiful, as were all your guests! It was an absolute pleasure hosting your wedding reception and we wish you and James all the best for the future! Susan, Jasmin & the St Andrews Conservatory team xx

Susan was our function coordinator and put simply, she is clearly the best in the business. She was attentive, organised, and reassuring. Susan was always quick to respond to any queries we had in the lead up to the day. On the day, she was present and ready to assist in any way required. I've no doubt the reason the wedding went so smoothly was because of Susan (and her Deputy, Alison). St. Andrews Conservatory is PURE MAGIC. The Quality of service is second to none. The venue speaks for itself - it is well decorated, functional in design and is the perfect space for a mid-sized wedding (we had a cocktail wedding of approx 120 guests). The staff were so polite and went above and beyond to ensure our guests had the best time. Most importantly, this venue is incredibly well priced. I cannot fault this venue. All I can say is BOOK IT! you won't regret it.

Nathan and Sheridan! Thank you so much for your kind review! Your wedding was so lovely and we all still think of it often! You were such a gorgeous couple to work with - makes our job so easy! All the best for the future and hopefully we see you back at the Hotel again sometime soon, Susan & the St Andrews Conservatory team xx

We highly highly recommend St. Andrews Conservatory!! We received so many compliments from our guests on the beautiful venue, friendly staff, incredible service and delicious food- a compliment and reflection on the wonderful staff at St. Andrews. Biggest thank you goes to our event coordinator, Jasmin!! From the get go, everything was a breeze- Jasmin was incredible in helping us to organise a time to view the venue, a tasting and made herself available to us via email/phone whenever we needed. Thanks to her, we did not need to worry about a thing and were able to enjoy our night with family and friends. Jasmin went above and beyond for us from the moment we booked and we are so thankful. Thank you to Jasmin and the staff at St. Andrews Conservatory for making our engagement party an incredible night to remember!! Anisha and Sagar 😊

Wow! This is the perfect venue for a small to medium wedding. We are so glad that we picked this venue for our wedding. From the location, the choice of menu and food options and quality of food, choice of drinks, the ambience, the staff we could not recommend this venue enough or fault anything about it. Our guests kept asking 'how did we find this venue' and that 'this was the best wedding that they had ever been too'. The lanterns on the ceiling and the beautiful lights that turned on at night to light up the trees outside were the perfect touch and the most beautifully arranged tables. Love. Love. Love this venue and the staff :)

Absolutely Amazing! My wedding was a >100 cocktail event, ceremony and reception at the same venue. There where some unique choices made by my husband and myself. The staff where able to roll with it and make it the perfect wedding. The staff where so helpfull taking care of all the little things, and had the perfect mix of passion, talent and experience. Everyone had a fantastic time. The space is absolutely gorgeous and required no extra dressing, and the food was delicious. The venue allowed us to mix from other menus so everything was perfect for what we wanted. Above all else, I felt I could trust the staff completely to keep the ball moving and keep everyone happy. Which for a control freak like myself is saying something.

Sometimes, when I see a supplier with so many 5 star reviews, I'm somewhat sceptical. But for St Andrews Conservatory, all of the 5 star reviews are absolutely justified. They made our wedding just perfect - the food, styling, location, and staff were all brilliant. I'd recommend them in a heartbeat. They were extremely responsive to our barrage of questions the whole way through, and did everything with a smile. And extremely transparent with their pricing! We must make a special mention of Amber, who was incredible on the night. Would highly recommend to anyone.

24 Jan 2020

Our wedding at St Andrews Conservatory was perfect! Amber, Susan, Jasmin and the team were fantastic and organised everything. They were so accommodating with everything we asked for, and everyone was nice, helpful and professional. If you want an amazing venue, fantastic food, lovely staff and an unforgettable night, I recommend you consider St Andrews Conservatory for your wedding!

22 Nov 2019

Beautiful venue, amazing staff and the 11/10 service. Nothing was too much to ask on the day and the months of lead up before hand. I wish I was getting married again so I could not only attend this venue but deal with the fabulous team.

8 Nov 2019

We had an amazing wedding at St Andrew's Conservatory. Jasmin and the team did an great job helping to organise everything. We appreciated the attention to detail, their support setting up the venue for us, and help making the the night run so smoothly. They made the whole process significantly less stressful, and even were happy to be a wet weather back-up option for our ceremony as well!

26 Jul 2019

Incredible wedding venue and perfect for the amount of people we had. The attentive staff and dedicated wedding coordinators are a special breed of people and ensured that our night ran seamlessly and without fault. A true testament to the venue owners and the respect they have for the “old world” hospitality industry - they have bought those values into the 21st century and have ensured that the wedding couple and all their guests feel as though they are attending a grand event, after all - it is a wedding! Can not fault the venue, food, drinks, staff, any of it. A perfect place to get married.

To Susan, Shae and all the staff at St Andrews Hotel, Our wedding was an absolute fairytale, it was everything I could have hoped and dreamed for and that is largely because of you. Nothing was too much trouble (even my crazy friend Bec, sorry about that Shae). You were all attentive, I was never without a glass of sparkling in my hand and discreet with Abbie's special beers which was managed beautifully. The food was stunning, the room was beautiful and the staff were on point. I was able to relax on the day knowing that you had everything in hand. You genuinely wanted to make sure we had the best day possible and for that, we will always be grateful. So many other venues out there could lean a lot from how you conduct yourselves.

18 Apr 2019

If you are looking for a venue to impress, with excellent service and value for money St Andrew's Conservatory is highly recommended. The venue is stunning, the food was excellent with the option of A la carte and the staff are well organised, flexible and the service was second to none.

22 Mar 2019

We had an absolutely amazing Wedding, the ceremony and reception were perfect and ran so smoothly. Shae was amazing, so friendly, approachable, and contanstanly predicted our needs which made the day extra special. Liz did an excellent job knowing the music timing for our entrance and it went perfectly to plan. Everyone is still talking about how much yummy food and drink there was, I’m so glad as I wanted to make sure everyone had full bellies and got plenty to eat and drink. The timing of it all was perfect. Mini burgers, lamb Kostas and aracini balls were the stand outs.

16 Mar 2019

We had our wedding at St Andrews Conservatory last month and it was nothing short of amazing. From Susan to Jasmin to Shae, the staff were so helpful and answered our 1000 questions. We planned our wedding from overseas and the photos do not do this place justice! The venue was immaculate, staff went above and beyond on the night and no request was too big. Our guests have not stopped raving about the venue and the food, absolutely perfect. Thank you Susan and your team, it was amazing :)
