“Hubby and I just had our wedding last weekend at Gibraltar, and so many guests kept saying it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to and many saying it was the best food they’ve ever had also. Rachel was so incredibly helpful and put my mind at such ease with the lengths she was willing to go for me to not feel stressed or worried. I genuinely was able to just enjoy the day, knowing that everything would fall into place, and it did. It was such a perfect day, and I wouldn’t change a thing! So glad we found Gibraltar Hotel.” Holly

The Gibraltar have been so great and understanding with Covid and made the whole process of having to postpone the wedding 6 months slightly less stressful! All the staff (special mention to Lauren) were so professional and friendly. The food was incredible, the venue was beautiful, loved that everyone can stay at the venue, the rooms were comfortable. Would highly recommend the Gibraltar as a wedding venue.

Fantastic Location, Staff amazing. from our first experience at the hotel right up to the day we left after the wedding 5 star. Alicia the wedding planner at the hotel walked us through everything, happy to answer any questions and helped with suppliers etc. No surprises on cost, everything was upfront and laid out so it was easy to understand. The quality of the food was exceptional, all our guest commented on how great it tasted and there was certainly enough for everyone ( no one was left hungry !) Everyone at the hotel worked hard to make sure our special day went smoothly, I had nothing to worry about and what a wonderful day it was. Thank you to all the staff at Gibraltar Hotel Bowral x

We could not recommend Gibraltar Hotel highly enough! Lauren the Wedding Coordinator did an amazing job throughout the entire process. Our guests loved the ability to stay onsite the night before and night of the wedding - it made everything so much easier on the day. The night went off without a hitch!

What can we say. Gibraltar Hotel was absolutely amazing from the organisation, planning to running the day for us. As the bride and groom we felt at ease with the guidance and coordination of the beautiful Alicia (Wedding Coordinator) looking after our special day. She made us feel very special. No question or issue was difficult to answer or to solve. We are so appreciative of all the staff at Gibraltar Hotel making our Wedding Weekend the most perfect one. We cannot wait to continue to visit in the future.

It was great. Alicia was the coordinator and was so friendly, organised and detailed. The venue was great and we had a lot of weather alternatives and the grounds are stunning for photos. The location was great and there is great accommodation for guests.

We had a great experience and on the day it went really well. They set up our centrepieces which made the whole experience stress free. It is a beautiful venue which is part of a golf course so we all stayed the night and had breakfast together. The food was phenomenal and was consistent from the tasting to the actual day!

Very professional, experts in the coordination of the day and very approachable and got back to my many requests very quickly! A stunning venue if you want all things in one spot - pre-ception, ceremony, reception and accommodation.
