Wonderful venue, exceptional service.

19 May 2017

The venue was beautiful, the staff well prepared and the food was immaculate. We were happy with the gorgeous service right up until the actual day of our wedding - Anna the event manager was wonderful to work with. Tarni who managed our event on the night was great, as well as Jodi who took care of everyone in the bridal party and family exceptionally well. Thanks Dunbar House.

Venue Manager Olive was our first point of contact with DH, she was accessible and keen on hosting our wedding which made us feel welcomed and valued as customers. Our wedding planner Anna Steele was very helpful - and patient. Tahli was our manager on the day and she did a great job too, venue setup was gorgeous and they made a bride's life much easier by making sure everything was displayed beatifully without hassling me with questions not even once - that made my day! Food is certainly a highlight so thumbs up for kitchen staff! Overall we had a great experience with DH, very smooth and easy to deal with.
