Venue Testimonials

I spent 2 nights in a business retreat this July and the experience was amazing. The business events team in CP were attentive to our needs and unique AV/presentation requirements. And the hotel's location makes it very easy to visit wine estates.

I stayed at Rydges Resort Hunter Valley for the entire time over the span of Easter 2024 for my wedding. The accommodation was lovely, so clean and comfortable. The buffet breakfast is a must! We ate there every day. Will definitely return!

Hats off to the Resprt for an excellent event for our organisation last weekend. Chef and staff that managed to serve over 500 guests a delicious three course meal. We stayed for the weekend and found the staff at the bars, restaurant, the front desks and housekeeping all attentive and engaging.
