Venue Testimonials

Every little request by us and our guests on the day were carried out efficiently and professionally. We had a chance to see the ballroom before our guests arrived and were taken back by how amazing it looked! We are so glad we got married there.

Amalia & Terry ·

Merivale are consistently good. We have held our AGM at Establishment the last 3 years in a row and all 3 have been run smoothly and professionally. I would highly recommend the venue and the staff.

I did lots of research nowhere we should book our event as the experience of this [e]vent was going to decide if we locked in a further 5 full day events. Merivale was by far the best in terms of communication and being able to accommodate a site visit… We also wanted a more ‘boutique hotel’ to host our events as it fits our brand better than having our events at a chain hotel.
