Venue Testimonials

Stayed for a 3 day conference. Nothing was a problem for the staff. Concierge was awesome at sorting our Myki tickets and recommended a great cafe for lunch. Conference food was good and dinner was great.

Harriet W

An excellent venue choice for our High Tea! Our guests were well cared for, food was delicious, plentiful, and the three tiered presentation added a special glam touch, champagne topped it off! We had a whole spacious area to ourselves for the afternoon with the atrium skyline ceiling providing plenty of light and atmosphere.

I went to a conference held at the InterContinental Rialto, we were welcomed by staff. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The hotel is in a good location with transport close and many restaurants. The hotel was clean and the refurbishments are great , with such character.
