Amazing! The venue and service throughout the whole planning process and on the night was outstanding. It was definitely a big effort behind the scenes leading up to our special day. Annabel from Merivale helped me work through the pandemic and made sure my dream wedding came to life. Thank you!

We chose this venue in Manly because the venue was exciting to look at and the food was incredible. The staff were a dream to work with and this made it so much easier, the atmosphere on the night was electric and everyone had so much fun!

We stayed in the penthouse on our wedding night, amazing!

15 Oct 2016

The Ivy Ballroom weren't cheap but had impeccable service and the food was amazing. The venue was a highlight. I recieved lots of feedback from the guest, it made the price worth it. They also had audio visual and did it so well. They had a waiter per table and a special international chef. A bit shaky on communication

Amazing venue for a 100-120 people. Intimate yet roomy enough to have people floating around and mingling comfortably

We used the Merivale Group for our Wedding Reception venue and hired the Ivy Ballroom. The Merivale Group were a fantastic bunch of people to work with and extremely professional and detail-oriented. Was super impressed with our event planner from this venue. Cannot recommend the Merivale Group any more highly!

Our wedding night stay was included in our Reception booking and the Establishment Hotel is so funky and in a very good part of town. Surrounded by night clubs and restaurants, this was super convenient to and from our Reception venue. Love the layout of the rooms too!

3 Oct 2015

They were so good! The food was beautiful, and everyone was saying how quickly they were getting things done. Would definitely recommend anyone to have a reception there.

What an amazing venue! I cannot fault anything. Planning was so easy and nothing was too difficult for them. The food was fantastic and the service was outstanding. Everything went smoothly and there was nothing for us to worry about on the night. The perfect venue.
