Venue Testimonials

We had our engagement party in the Winterford Room at Regatta Hotel. The staff went above and beyond to ensure everything went to plan, that guests were happy and that the night went off without a hitch. The staff were friendly and attentive, and the area was very clean and tidy. Our guests had nothing but nice things to say, and we would consider the Regatta again for special occasions in the future.

Our wedding reception at Regatta Hotel Brisbane was perfect, and all staff were very helpful. The food was delicious, I'll definitely recommend this venue. The veranda is great, and they have lots of craft beer from good breweries.
