Hi Team

We want to congratulate all the staff who helped make Nicola and Wayne's wedding reception such a success. 

The venue was fabulous, the food spectacular, and the service top class.  Your staff were so friendly and 

helpful, especially the wee lass who joined in with singing "Sound of Music" songs. It was such a delight 

and added to the fun of the day.  Right from when we first inquired about hiring the room the staff went 

out of their way to make sure we were accommodated.  To quote the Bride, Nicola –

"The day was more than what she had hoped for" 

and you guys played a huge part in that, so thank you all so very much.

Hi Byron,

I would like to thank Elevates Bar for a most excellent venue for our Broken River Ski Club Staff Welcome. 
The bar room was a perfect size for our group. The platters were very tasty and the variety excellent and 
being serving throughout the evening ensured there was a good mix of food with the alcohol.
I would definitely recommend your venue to others and hope we can use your services again in the future.

Kind Regards

Please pass on our thanks to chef and his team for the fabulous food that was put out on Sunday.

It was fantastic.. I have subsequently had many very complementary comments passed on to me
with regards to the food, atmosphere and 

The whole day was a success from our perspective, the lads on the bar were friendly and outgoing
they were also a key element to the success of the function.

Once again, thank you for all the hard work in making the day special and stress free.

Well done.

Thank you to all for hosting and helping organise the launch of the Brydie Lauder Charitable Trust. 
It was an evening to 
remember and treasure and it was made the night it was as Byron and the staff
were so amazing and your support 
was incredible.  You all made my job a lot less stressful and 
I had nothing but hugely positive comments to the evening. 
Thank you so much.

I would like to thank you for hosting my 60th birthday celebrations yesterday. Everything went off without a hitch
and your staff were both extremely friendly and professional. 
The food was both tasty and plentiful and the
room was ideal with the outdoor area a real bonus on such a fine day.  Everyone I dealt with from when I first
inquired about the room right up to the finish on the night were terrific and helpful - nothing was a problem
- well done.  
I am sure that you will get more bookings from my guests as many had never been there before
but all were thoroughly impressed. 
Please pass on my thanks to all involved and we look forward to visiting again in the near future.
