Venue Testimonials

We recently hosted a wonderful wedding (ceremony + reception) at The George Ballroom. The space itself is stunning, and our guests were full of praise for its heritage beauty and also generous food servings on the night. Our event manager was incredibly supportive, responsive and efficient throughout the planning process, and the event staff were also very professional and helpful. We would definitely highly recommend The George for weddings and other celebrations alike.

From the moment we stepped foot into The George Ballroom, we knew it was the wedding venue for us. Simply stunning. But to go with the beautiful venue is the delicious food and great service of all the staff. Our event coordinator was fabulous, we felt completely at ease knowing everything was taken care of for us. Nothing was too much trouble. A truly memorable day for both my husband and I, and all of our guests. Highly recommend it to anyone considering this venue for their event.
