When planning and executing an event with Merivale, my mind is at ease. From making the booking to the execution on the day I don’t have any worries due to the amazing service from key staff. Emma MacMahon is an amazing event manager and my right hand and working with her makes my job enjoyable. Emma is always willing to bend over backwards to ensure all requirements are met. Everything was spot on.
Event planning was outstanding. All requirements were followed up promptly and all arrangements were exactly as planned. Very little effort was required of me, this is very important with the volume of events I execute.
On the day Travis McHugh was a star! I couldn’t ask for more in a floor manager, he truly goes above and beyond to ensure the success of an event. He doesn’t only manage my event and my needs but also caters directly with my customers. Travis is an asset to Merivale, his level of consideration and willingness to perform is outstanding. Service and operations staff during the event were outstanding from the moment I approached the lift. Security (Moe) was extremely helpful and cheerful.
The Ivy Sunroom space is divine. As usual immaculately presented. The uber cool interior design and decoration complete the experience.
All F&B was very well presented, fresh and delicious. I always ask for beverages to be chosen by Merivale, they always choose well. Very happy.
Bottom line - I would book an event with Merivale over any other venue in Sydney and if there were more spaces available to suit our audience in other cities, Merivale would be #1 everywhere.
QANTAS COCKTAIL EVENT FOR 1,000 - FEBRUARY 2012
Dear Kathy, I would like to commend each and every one of your team members who assisted in putting together what was an extremely successful event for QANTAS. Everyone of your staff were an absolute delight to work with and were true professionals, offering us commitment and dedication to ensuring we achieved what was intended, and that was to “Thank” all of our Industry Partners for their support. I would also like to make special mention regarding the AV team and DJ, for working so well with us and fulfilling our every need. The feedback from our Executive Management Team and our Travel Partners regarding your establishment and the service demonstrated by each and every one of your team has been exceptional. Please pass on our sincere thanks to all your team as well as your security team who helped make our evening a true success. We certainly look forward to working with you in the near future.

WEEKEND CONFERENCE & DINNER FOR 70 GUESTS - JULY 2013
I think I can speak for us both when I say it was BY FAR the best run event we have held… in all aspects.
The venue was wonderful, the accommodation was exquisite and EVERY staff member we encountered were so accommodating and helpful. We have never come across staff like this at any event we have previously held. Cannot fault the weekend at all.
Big thank you to both yourself and Natalie for the organisation. Luke and Iain were both fantastic as were all of the girls. Special mention to the little Asian girl with long hair who assisted both days. (I apologise for not remembering her name) she was a stand out amongst the rest.
We will most definitely be booking in for the next 2 years.
Again, thank you for all your hard efforts, we have had wonderful feedback so far.
40TH BIRTHDAY PARTY AT ANGEL L/2 - JUNE 2013
It was an excellent night. All my guests loved it. Got great comments from people re food and cake. The staff were lovely and worked really hard all night- very competent and flexible. We really felt well looked after.
I liked how the place looked and the volume level of the music. Would highly recommend you to other people and will probably use your services again in the future.
ANZ CORPORATE EVENT - FEBRUARY 2013
Thanks so much for all your work to make last night a success - the service has been top notch through the whole process and was topped off by your very professional team running the event (notably Daina) last night, we couldn't have asked for any more so thanks for all your efforts helping to bring the concept to life (please thank the chefs too!!)
We've had very positive feedback coming in already, and the CEO was very happy when he was the last to leave last night - he told us he thought it was the best one he's been to so that was nice to hear.
Anyway thanks again for all your help.

CHARITY EVENT - AUGUST 2013
Dear Emma, Sandy, David & Ross, We cannot thank you enough for your support and generosity of The Diamond Event! Last week we raised over $320,000 for the Emergency Department. We truly couldn’t have done this without your support and professionalism. Working with such amazing people at Merivale has been an absolute pleasure. Everyone from the loading dock through to the wait staff were very accommodating and supportive. Special thank you to the amazing Sandy & David who's creative talents transformed the ballroom into something truly spectacular and Matt who made all the acoustics work beautifully – THANK YOU!! The feedback has been great, here are some of the email comments:"I had such a good time, the room looked spectacular and I don’t know what was better, winning the lucky door prize or dancing with Timomatic, what a treat,…" "I have told everyone that the food on the night was the best I have ever been served at a function, seriously delicious and enough which is often not the case." "beautiful venue, wine,food & entertainment – count us in for next year" "great night could not fault anything!!" Best
