Here’s what just a few of our guests think of us...
Just wanted to thank you and your lovely staff so much for making my sister’s 60th birthday last Saturday such an amazing and memorable occasion.In addition to your restaurant providing the perfect setting for the event, all guests agreed that your staff were wonderful and the food was delicious!
We would like to thank the venue team for being such a big part of our special day. We appreciate the time and expertise you have given us throughout the whole planning of our wedding. We appreciate the quality of the service and catering on the night. It was truly mind blowing!
Anthony and Elise
You were responsible for making our special day the best day of our lives… and you far exceeded our expectations.Your professionalism from day one blew us away… hence why we never looked at a second venue. We knew right away that we wanted you to plan our day. Nothing that we did was a problem for you. Your presence on the night was PERFECT! Every time that we needed to find you for something… YOU WERE THERE. The night ran so smoothly and your staff were amazing. Our guests had an amazing time and cannot speak highly enough of the venue, your staff… and YOU. Glanville Hall is nothing short of amazing. We will continue to recommend it to all of our friends and family for any occasion and will hopefully see you again soon.
Jason and Ian
Natasha helped us plan our special day and nothing was a problem to her. She made it effortless and we can't recommend the amazing venue, food and staff more. Love Glanville Hall!
A big thank you to you and your team for a great Christmas Party on Friday night! The food was delicious, your staff were very friendly and helpful and your facilities were great! Merry Christmas to you and your staff.
We can’t thank you enough for how the day turned out. You even made the weather perfect! We had so many people comment on how beautiful the hall and gardens looked and they loved how relaxed the whole day was. Which you know was exactly what we were aiming for. The festoon lighting was one of the major things I wanted, but unfortunately they were just out of our budget. To arrive on the day and see them up was simply amazing. To go out of your way and organise something like that for us is just unbelievable.You guys all love what you do and it clearly shows even after hosting so many weddings. Thanks again for making our day perfect!
Paul and Katherine
Everything went really well and smoothly and we were really fortunate with the weather which also meant we were able to enjoy the lawn games and mingle outside. All our staff really enjoyed the evening. Please pass on our appreciation to your staff for providing really delicious food and wonderful service which made the evening all the more enjoyable!

All my guests and I were most impressed with my 70th Birthday High Tea on Sunday, with many comments of delicious food and great service by your staff.

We had such a wonderful day and we're so glad we chose Glanville Hall for our wedding. You and your team did an amazing job setting up the venue for both our ceremony and reception; it all looked so beautiful and you took all the pieces we brought and created a beautiful setting. All of our guests had a great time and everyone we've spoken to has said the food was fantastic, which it was! Those mini shepherd's pies were to die for, and the mains were delicious.

THANK YOU and your team so, so much for making our wedding the most incredible day of our lives! it honestly went so smoothly and i wouldn't change a thing. The room was so beautiful and the food was impeccable.
Toni and Vincent
OMG Kelly is so damn amazing. We got a February package and planned our wedding in just 10 weeks thanks to this amazing woman! It was so helpful that their amazing decor was all included in our package - the arch, wood slices and jars of blooms for centrepieces, even an amazing cake. They set everything up (and I mean everything) the way I wanted and I didn't lift a finger. When we arrived Kelly even sewed my bridesmaids dresses up, as it was so windy they were flying open! I can't recommend them enough, the food is also above superb and the venue itself is beautiful and 100% everything I could have ever dreamed of!
Amanda and Brett
I wanted to say say how impressed all our guests were with the venue, food, staff and setting. Glanville Hall couldn't be faulted! Everyone had such a good time, which helped us relax and enjoy our big day!

Tim and I had an amazing night. Everything was perfect and so delicious. Was so nice to have a night being adults - I actually cant describe how amazing our night was! (Lisa and Tim) *** I just wanted to say thank you for dinner on Tuesday night. Food was amazing, service was wonderful and the room looked magical! We both had a wonderful night. (The Hazelhursts)
Valentine's Day 2017
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to the team at Glanville Hall for my amazing Baby Shower high tea. Right from my very first email enquiry until the last guest walked out the door, everyone in the Glanville team has been exceptional. The event itself was simply gorgeous - the venue, gardens and grand old building were the perfect setting and every guest commented on what a great choice I had made. The room we had was roomy but still felt very intimate and exclusive to us. As for the food and drinks - wow! All presented on stunning "old fashioned" high tea china. The food was abundant and absolutely delicious. I myself am a coeliac and have never had such amazing tasty food choices. My friend was a vegan and she said that was the tastiest vegan food she's eaten out before. No guest left hungry - in fact they were all full and very happy with the sweet and savoury choices. Compliments to the chef and kitchen staff. Thank you once again to all the floor staff on the day, everything went smoothly and although there was never a moment where we couldn't approach an available staff member it was also great that we were mostly left to enjoy our day with very discreet interactions with staff changing foods over or bringing beverages etc, so well done. I have - and so have many of my guests - already recommended others to use your venue for future functions. Hopefully one day I'll be able to have another function of my own at your establishment!
Melissa Pilkington
We had a great time at our birthday lunch, and all of the guests were greatly impressed. It is so good to have such a great venue and facilities with such good management and such high quality cooking. You have been very good to us, and we received extremely good service. The whole event represented very good value to us and of course we would love to come back again.
- Elisabeth and Peter
We would like to thank you and your fantastic team so very much for making our day such a success. We enjoyed every moment, and were just sorry that it went so quickly. Our guests raved about the experience, which was brilliant from start to finish. Your help and support made our day extra special, and less stressful than it could have been! Our happy memories of the day will stay with us forever, thanks to you.
Tracey and Phillip
The room looked stunning and so much care had been taken setting it up. Everyone really enjoyed the high tea and I really want to thank you and your team for making it all work so well. The food was delicious as so well presented!
May Gibbs Children's Literature Foundation
Thank you again for all your assistance throughout the year. We are really glad that our wedding ended up being at Glanville as I think the whole setting looked beautiful! The staff were great and very attentive. Everyone said that they thought the venue was perfect and a lot of them said it was one of the best weddings they’d ever been to!
Annie and Andy
We really appreciated all the effort you & your team put into making our day special, it exceeded our expectations and was indeed the best day ever! I know you all went above and beyond to help make our day memorable and I want to thank you for all the extra details you added and how kind all your staff were to let us have some extra time at the end. We were blown away by the work of both the Glanville Hall and the Pop-Up wedding teams.
Selina and Brendan
Thank you so much for your hospitality and professionalism throughout our wedding day. Our guests were full of compliments regarding the quality of the venue, service and delicious food at Glanville Hall. You attended to my needs despite the weather and the Cedar Room looked beautiful and vintage. The day was filled with love and charm as I had always dreamed it would be. I am very grateful to you and your staff.
Jennifer and Jakub
We are so grateful for our wonderful ceremony, it was everything we dreamt and made even more special with the perfect weather. Your hard work at Glanville Hall has really shown, it is so beautiful and we received so many comments - some had not seen the venue before so hopefully lots of positive word of mouth! Thank you once again for an awesome day.
Kahla and Sean
Thank you for everything at our wedding Kelly, all the feedback from the guests was very positive. Please give a big thank you to Sarah from both of us, she was brilliant in hosting the event! We will have no hesitation in recommending you guys to other people, and have started doing so already.
Bill and Aiza
Hi Sarah, just wanted to send you an email to say thank you for everything over the planning stage and on the day of the wedding, you are amazing. Thank you for coming to see me and help me relax and take a moment to breathe after my plan didn't go to plan and I was rushed. You are amazing at what you do and your caring nature truly shows through in your work - you would meet so many brides yet made me feel like a friend, not just a client.
Just wanted to thank you for an absolutely fantastic high tea celebration on Sunday. Your staff provided us with outstanding service and nothing seemed too much trouble. The room looked stunning and the food was delicious with plenty on offer. The function exceeded Dad's expectations....he was beaming all day!
Thanks so much for creating a beautiful wedding for us. We have had many lovely comments on the day, particularly regarding the service and the food so your staff should be proud. I can't imagine my wedding being any other way!
Jess and Adam
Thank you so much Kelly (and team) for the wonderful ceremony and reception you held for us. You have an amazing venue, team, menu (the dessert was a favourite!) and event planning service. You went above and beyond what was required and made us feel very cared for and spoilt on our special day. Thank you for providing us with so much assistance on the day and during the lead-up. It was so wonderful knowing that you were always there (during both the planning process and on the day) to answer many of my questions, reassure me, safety pin a bridesmaid dress, hire umbrellas at the last minute. I really loved the event planning service you provided, I felt this was a very unique touch. We had a wonderful day and were happy with all the details. All of the suppliers (DJ/Florist) you recommended were also great and it made it so much easier when looking for suppliers to know that you had already used them. Glanville Hall will always hold a special place in our hearts.
Laura and Toby
Thank you so much for making our wedding so memorable. We had so many compliments, from the quality of the food to the stylish décor and picturesque venue. We had a superb wedding day. It was truly unforgettable, and the cake was delicious too! The day went like clockwork, and I was so grateful to not have to worry about a thing. Sarah you were amazing and went above and beyond to decorate the room with our flowers, candles and chocolates and you got it just right! Thank you all for your hard work in making our day so special.
Karena and Kevin
Good morning Sarah, we just want to say a huge thank you! Everything was so perfect and just amazing. You seriously went above and beyond and you're such an incredibly nice person and made our wedding day so special. Thank you heaps!
Amy and Rick
Thank you so much for all your assistance in making Don’s birthday celebration such a fantastic event! We had an absolutely fabulous night and big thanks to your wonderful waiting staff for looking after our guests so well. Everything was great and so many of our guests were amazed at Glanville Hall and its unique setting...I’m sure you will be getting some enquiries for further celebrations from them. I spoke to Justin on the night and thanked him for presenting such delicious food ..everyone just loved it. Many thanks once again Sarah for the excellent organising on your part to ensure we had a fabulous evening.
Denise and Don
I just wanted to thank you for putting on an absolutely amazing wedding, wow! We had so many complements about the venue, food, ceremony and all round atmosphere.

Ali and Wade
We had a fantastic wedding day. So many guests commented on how great an idea a breakfast wedding is, and the food was delish. I was so disappointed I couldn't get through more of my breakfast but thankfully, Damian was more than happy to finish it off for me. The cake was so yummo too! What an amazing venue and staff, we truly appreciate all the work put in by everyone involved - it was just a delight. Exactly what we'd hoped for.
Kerrie and Damian
Thank you for such a wonderful day. It was everything we imagined and more. My favourite moment was coming around the corner during photographs to see all my friends and family mingling happily and playing games on the lawns while 20s jazz was playing! Everyone raved about the location, the high quality of food and service, and the atmosphere of the Hall. They said they would definitely recommend it to others as a wedding venue! Thanks for all your help on the day and for making sure I ate something!
Emma and Ryuji
Thank you so much for putting together such a wonderful wedding. The ceremony room looked divine, and the reception area was beautiful. Thank you for arranging the indoor ceremony and reception at the last minute due to the weather, it was really lovely. Everyone commented on how beautiful the manor was, and that it was a relaxed and well catered for wedding. The food and wine was amazing and plentiful, and the cake was delicious! You really took all the stress out of the arrangements of the wedding, so we just had to focus on getting married. Thank you once again for making our day beautiful, relaxed and fun!
Naomi and Tim xx
Thank you again for the attention to detail and sumptuous food provided at Glanville Hall! I hope we can ‘join forces’ again next year for another great event.

Daniel’s 40th birthday party was even more amazing that I expected. It will be the talking point with our friends! Please pass on to Justin that the cake was just awesome, it was truly an event to remember.
Robyn and Daniel
Just a note to thank you very much for helping us to organise the celebrations of John’s 90th and Philippa’s 50th yesterday. Your professionalism was outstanding - nothing was too much trouble for you, no matter our demands. The room looked beautiful when we arrived, all your special touches were appreciated. The staff were lovely, non intrusive but always on hand to anticipate our needs - they were great.
Catherine Lock
Thank you so much Kelly and the team from Glanville for our perfect wedding! It was an amazing night made even better by the fantastic service and all the gorgeous little touches you added! Everyone loved the food and all the staff were so lovely and professional! Can't thank you enough!
Mel and Adam
I would like to pass on to you how wonderful you helped make my son’s wedding day. Your staff were extremely helpful and friendly which makes the day all that more enjoyable. The food was exceptional and both Ian and myself have had some excellent feedback from our guests. Kelly I would like to personally thank you for all the help and advice you gave, and Justin I would like to personally thank you and your chefs for the wonderful food and also for catering so well for our vegetarian and vegan guests, they had nothing but praise for your choice of menu. The setting for the actual ceremony was just stunning too. I would recommend Glanville Hall to anyone, be it for a wedding or special occasion. We cannot thank you and your staff enough for the best day that you could have possibly given Matt and Mia.
Carol (Mother of the Groom)
Thanks so much for the beautiful ceremony and wedding reception for Mia and Matt. Every one enjoyed themselves and commented on the fine cuisine and outstanding service and of course the magnificent venue - Glanville Hall.
Marie (Mother of the Bride)
We had the perfect wedding day! Thank you so much to Kelly and the amazing team at Glanville Hall, you guys truly did a spectacular job!
Nina and Jay
Words simply do no justice to the epic, wonderful event you put on for our 20th anniversary and vow renewal. It was everything we had dreamed and more, better than the wedding in 1994! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Stacey and Dennis
Glanville Hall is a beautiful and elegant venue with two amazingly talented proprietors. Kelly and Justin have a way of taking a venue and turning it into something spectacular both visually and in regards to ambiance. I would not think twice in recommending Glanville Hall to both friends and clients!
Liesa (Fleur de Lys)
We were lucky enough to be chosen to be the 'faces' of Glanville Hall. As we pulled up to the venue for the first time it took our breath away - what a gorgeous place, and the grounds were absolutely stunning! The first time we met Kelly and Justin we immediately felt welcomed and comfortable talking to them. We felt like we were a part of the team, and that our opinions and thoughts were valued. Working with such an amazing team has been an absolute privilege and something we will never forget. We cannot recommend Glanville Hall highly enough!
