“Lies told to Guests by Supervisor because no aircon.”
Reviewed 28 March 2013

The entire wedding reception was ruined because of no aircon on a very hot evening and no back-up plan eg. fans. THE most uncomfortable venue to stage any function and the foolish Supervisor told so many differing lies that he forgot which Guests he had told which story.Cannot comment on food which looked great as most Guests didn't eat their meals as it was stifling.Would not recommend that this venue is chosen in future for the most important day of your life as it is too risky. There are not even any windows which can be opened. Most Guests spent the evening outdoors.Think VERY carefully before booking here for a function. Doltone House at Sylvania Waters is much better from our experience.

“Great venue - pity about the organisation and service”
Reviewed 11 September 2012

Promised so much, I am sure the food would have been great - if we could have got any. Shocking organisation! Lots of angry and disappointed people at the function. Spoiled the entire evening.

“This is a class act in a classy city!”
Reviewed 5 September 2012

Went to a work related function last night at Doltone House on Sydney Harbour.....just arriving there is a great experience. With views to die for, I was transported to another world from the moment I exited the lift to Level 3.....twilight canapes and drinks, on a terrace with haute couture ambience. On meeting and greeting our friends/colleagues, the evening was one of the most enjoyable work related functions I have ever been to in 34 years in my industry.
I have attented Doltone House several times over the years, and it keeps getting better.
Parking was easy across the road in a secure car park.....dont hesitate to visit if an opportunity arises.

“Don't do it!”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

We've staged a couple of events at Doltone house. Yes, it's a beautrful position and the ambience is nice but the management are brutal. They charged us for 150 guests when we only had 120 and the food was second rate and cold. When we asked if they would review our account they just said no. These guys are merciless and will take you to the cleaners in a heartbeat. Too bad really. There are plenty of better venues in Sydney. Ray Wood. Toronto.
