I'd like to thank yourself and the staff at Dorset Gardens Hotel for your excellent organization and assistance prior and during the night of our function. You were so very helpful throughout the whole process, thank you!
ALL the meals were of high quality and absolutely delicious! I've had NO complaints whatsoever, and in actual fact people were commenting on how fantastic all the meals were, so.. "compliments to the chef"!
We found all the bar staff and waiters/waitresses to be very professional, friendly and helpful.
Thank you very much for all your assistance, and looking forward to future events at Dorset Gardens Hotel !

A very big thank you to you and your staff for you terrific assistance last Friday and compliments to the chef for the meals. I've not heard one word of compliant from anyone which is a fair indicator that all went well. Certainly from the RDCA Executive perspective everything proceeded to plan. The sound system was excellent; the set up worked match better and having the projection of the three screens kept people interested in the proceedings
I'll be back to you shortly about a booking date for next year. It was a pleasure to work with you and hopefully I'm around to do so again.

On behalf of the Yarra Valley Jump Club I'd like to say thanks for your service before and at our ball last Saturday night.
All reports that I've heard have been positive, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to any other prospective patrons.
A very big thank you from myself and Gavin. The function was amazing! Everything from the room, to the food and all of the staff were fantastic. I could not have imagined it any better! Gavin, myself and our family and friends all had a wonderful time. Thank you so much for your help from start to finish, with all my emails and questions as well! You were fabulous!
My family from QLD were all happy with their rooms as well! I will definitely recommend people to use you for functions. I can not thank you enough for helping us plan our engagement party! It was perfect.
