The wedding went so smoothly and everything was just lovely. I know that it takes a great deal of work in the background and I thank you also very much for all the help you gave me in the months before as the planning went on. The staff were all lovely and so helpful in all kinds of little ways, as well as in the bigger things. Amy & Nicky were always there to smooth things over when I started worrying about things. Our guests all raved about what a wonderful place it is to hold a wedding. Having everyone all together for the 3 days made it possible to spend quality time with all your family and friends. And the lack of cell phones was fantastic!!!!! I can’t thank you enough and could you please say thank you to everyone else who helped make it so special too.
Thank you Dominic and all of the staff at Furneaux we had an amazing time at our wedding in February. Furneaux is such a special place but to make a big event run so smoothly it takes huge commitment and attention to detail. The whole team at Furneaux went above and beyond what we expected and we and our guests could not have asked for more. The food in particular was fantastic and even with a chef amongst our guests the feedback was all good. Dominic himself made sure all our demands (despite some of them being eccentric) were met and always with a smile. We would highly recommend to anyone hosting a wedding at Furneaux it was better than we could have imagined.
Thank you Furneaux.
I can’t thank you enough for the amazing effort you made for Nic & Pauls wedding. The whole meal was delicious and the ‘piece de resistance’ – the enormous crayfish - was wonderful.
We had nothing but praise from our guests, not only about the food, but also the presentation and the service. You have a great group for your staff, and I know that they all played a part in making the occasion so great for us.
Thank you Tim very much indeed.
We have just spent five wonderful days at Furneaux Lodge for the Simmonds/Weakley wedding.
I cant praise the staff enough. Everyone of them went out of their way to help, inform and do all sorts of impossible requests. From Amy the receptionist (absolutely tops) to Dominic, who ran a tight ship; Tim (the chef who cooked the best rack of lamb I have ever tasted) to the people who served us in the bar and constantly supplied us with coffee, to the girls that did the houskeeping and the guys that trundled our suitcases to and from the wharf.
You have been really fortunate to have had such a great bunch of people working for you.
We all had a great time.
