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.

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.
