I knew as soon as we saw the place, this venue was going to be the place where we got married. The venue has a great atmosphere about it. It had the wonderful balance of chic, style, warmth and comfort as well as graceful elegant touch. I loved that you could roam the grounds and explore the beautiful sections of the property, whether you look out at the scenic view, or enjoy the beautiful art and courtyard. The host and staff were amazing. They bent themselves backwards to make sure we were happy and gave us plenty of advice and communication leading up to the big day. Our wedding went off without a hitch and I must give thanks, as it was the lovely staff at The Lodge that made this happen. The courtyard and reception looked superb, all the food served was divine (I had so many guests comment on how delicious the food was) and the staff, including the host, were an absolute delight. They looked after our every whim and made sure we had a marvelous evening. The entire day and evening was absolutely perfect and I honestly don't think it could have been this fantastic at any other location. We had so many guests come up to us during the evening and compliment us on the choice of location, they just loved the food, the atmosphere and the friendly staff. I cannot compliment this place enough. If I had to do it all again, I would come back to The Lodge. Thank-you for making our special day so amazing and memorable. Simply, perfect.

Our daughters venue was a wonderful choice, the moment we walked through the courtyard the staff were very welcoming. They offered support for the wedding couple all through their special day, the staff were professional in every way. The food was excellent, the canopies offered prior to the buffet were of a high quality standard and the buffet meal was superb. The manager was always around to offer any support required and to ensure everything ran smoothly for our daughter and son-in laws wedding, it all went off without any problems at all. The atmosphere of the venue was of a classic style and this ensured a very relaxing day and night but most of all the guests had a wonderful time and the wedding couple were extremely satisfied with their stay at the lodge.

We recently had our wedding at The Lodge and our day was just perfect. Peter, Viv and their team were fantastic. They provided excellent, friendly service. That included going the extra mile not only for ourselves as bride and groom, but our guests also. The food was lovely and after negotiating the menu options with Peter in our planning, our menu couldn't have been better. The venue is lovely, the decor and decorations have been chosen beautifully. It was so nice to have our ceremony in the courtyard around the fish pond and our photos taken around the lovely grounds. Our family and friends haven't stopped talking about our wedding day at The Lodge. Thank you Peter for all your help with the planning. And thank you to you, Viv and your team for our perfect wedding day.

I had my Wedding Reception in Feb 2014 at The Lodge - and WOW what a fantastic time my now husband and I had! Everything ran soooo smoothly! There was no stressing what so ever, any questions or queries on the day the owner went straight to the MC who handled the lot! There was sufficient enough communication through the months leading up to our event and it was great to have the final face to face meeting a week before the big day to go over all of the details - I am a very very organised person so this was such a nice feeling to be able to tick all of the boxes and relax a little. Everything was so easy with The Lodge - no hassles at all. I was able to alter the menus to suit our style, then being able to set up the reception the day prior was definitely a PLUS PLUS so that any last minute changes were of no stress what so ever and that evening I could sit back and relax before my big day. I would truly recommend to anyone.

We booked our wedding at The Lodge 14 months ago to make sure we got the exact date we wanted (this venue books out well in advance ... and now we know why it’s just superb). We did this from a distance as we live in Oz and have a big group of family and friends in Wellington. It was a big wedding with over 200 guests and the truth is we thought that would be hard but it certainly was made easy by the team at The Lodge. Peter told us then that the Harbor room was being upgraded ... so it’s fantastic! Light, elegant and modern while still keeping the traditional French Tudor feel. Our wedding day was absolutely spot on. The food was exceptional so was the service, and the location we used all three rooms ...just everything!
