Our daughter was married here last week sat 4 march and could not have asked for a more perfect outcome despite the weather. The owner operators and their team are as beautiful as the place itself going about their business without fuss making everyone feel welcome. The on-site accommodation, reception area and grounds are meticulously cared for and the food...

We had a fantastic weekend with friend's and family. This venue caters for everyone from babies to older people with lots to keep them occupied. They supply games, TV, billiard table, coffee shop, golf and beautifully kept gardens to walk around. The kids had a ball playing outside, so nice to them away from electronic devices, although they had full...

We had our daughter's wedding November 2016 and cannot thank Donna, Matt, Jenny & all the staff at Sylvan Glen who made Emma and Tim's wedding run so smoothly.

It was a family wedding. The assistance with the wedding plans and last-minute detail was fantastic. It is a lovely property with an old homestead, now 14 guest rooms and several shared spaces - lounge, big family room, and a sun deck looking over the well-maintained golf course, so there is plenty of room and activity for the family. Walks,...

We attended a weekend wedding at Sylvan Glen. Family and the bridal party stayed on site. Others guests stayed nearby and were bussed to and from the ceremony. The venue is set on lovely grounds and the bedrooms are charming, with en suite bathrooms. We had stunning weather and the food was excellent. The highlight however (apart from the beautiful...

Not that easy to find. Signage could be better. Rooms were clean but bathroom smelled of Urine. The beds need new mattresses as you sink in the middle. Insects and moths were flying around the room keeping you awake bring bug spray. Keep in mind if you are a light sleeper that this is near a train line and you...

Dear Visitor I am so sorry you felt you had to write negative items on your trip advisor But I feel I need to clarify a few of your points raised. Sylvan Glen proudly recycles 200 kilos per week of waste. What you actually saw in the room off the kitchen was all the recycling which had just been bagged...

“Rooms c1, c 2 and c3 are perfect for families or groups of 4 guests that don't mind staying together. Perfect for kids or singles that don't mind sleeping in the same room. Also, noise isn't a problem as they are separated from the main house.”
