They were brilliant! From the start they made everything so stress-free which was beautiful. We had our 6-week year old baby there and they were so accommodating to us and her which was excellent.

Thanks so much for your beautiful review Kim! Baby I was one of the cutest guests we've seen yet - she was a pleasure to accomodate <3

We had the most amazing experience with Citybeach right from the very beginning. Melissa is so helpful and was so quick to respond to all my emails/calls, which made us feel so relaxed knowing that everything was taken care of. We couldn't have asked for a better night. The staff were so amazing on the night as well. They checked in on us throughout the night and made sure we were well looked after. The inclusion of the MC and DJ were fantastic; Dave (Collins) is very charismatic and Chris played all our favourite requests. We had such a great time celebrating with our family and friends and will definitely be recommending Citybeach to everyone.

They were incredible, there was no need for a wedding planner because they included nearly everything. DJ, MC, Alcohol, Table Decorations, Lighting. All we had to do was buy a cake and even that they organised so well with the supplier.

Amy was amazing and so supportive throughout the whole planning process, I could not have asked for anyone better to help me figure everything out, the food, venue and service were all fantastic.

City Beach was amazing! The value for money is awesome, and there are so many inclusions in their packages. We felt like we didn't have to do anything, so it was completely stress free. They also have a ceremony package where they completely set up the ceremony, so all you have to do is organise a celebrant. We couldn't recommend City Beach enough to anyone else getting married.

They had amazing service and included a great package with music and 3 course meal with canapes and drinks for us! They supplied most of the decorations which was really good and set everything up and packed it all for us.

The venue was very nicely renovated and there were views over the beach. They did the celebration and catering as well they had a large and small room which had a bar and grill next door. We had a package deal where they decorated everything, and helped out with the wedding celebration. A DJ and MC was also included, and the food was really good. We had both the cocktail as well as sit down food. Melissa who helped us out with the wedding and planning was amazing and so helpful. She gave us a selection of different colours for the lighting and decorations. We were so happy with what we got for the amount we paid.

City Beach is such a fantastic venue to have your wedding. The rooms are well set up, the food amazing and the view exceptional. Melissa and her team are fantastic at their jobs, willing to go that extra mile to ensure the day is perfect. The wait staff were always attentive and quick with their service. I had a fantastic night thanks to City Beach Function Centre!
