Venue Testimonials

Right from the our very first enquiry, we have had exceptional service from everybody at The Terrace. We appreciated the flexibility that was offered to help us achieve our vision. Everything seemed to run so smoothly and nothing was too much effort for the staff. The food was exceptional!

Alexandra W ·

The venue was beautiful and the food was amazing. The communication was really great. We were able to go in and set things up a few days before the wedding which we found really helpful. There were lots of different options on how we could set up the room which was great.

Stephanie J ·

A huge Thanks to Emily and team for the excellent service. Everything was absolutely beautiful, scenery, food, service, friendliness.. Emily is a true professional, helpful, friendly, organised, positive, accommodating and with a "can-do" attitude that made the night special. A huge Thanks once again. We have had lots of compliments.
