What an amazing venue Our wedding coordinator Eilish Parsons went above and beyond during the entire process of our planning and on our wedding day . The venue catered for absolutely everything , we were definitely looked after from the beginning . Beautiful location next to the water and very well presented from the second you pull up in the car park . Every single staff member was helpful and very pleasant, nothing was an issue for them . We had our guests stay at the resort, our ceremony and reception were all at sails and wow it was so easy and the day flowed perfectly .

Venue is truly stunning, however the co-ordination of our wedding was a complete disappointment. We were promised many things (even had them in our wedding contract) and they still weren’t provided.

Really really helpful and understanding venue. Rachelle was very efficient and available to assist us every step of the way.

We had a really nice room there and we had complimentary breakfast with them. We were so tired by the next day we asked if they could bring the breakfast up to us which they normally charge for, but just did it for us!
