What our customers say

There is no better place to get married (from our one experience), The Duke wedding and hotel team were absolutely fantastic to work with. Adam and I were traveling from Singapore to NZ to get married, so most of our communication and planning was with Ida via email which was no problem at all. Working with a licensed venue from a distance is a fantastic option as we had no need to worry about service, food, alcohol and even decorations were super easy as this location is superb! The planning team worked with us on different seating options to accommodate our odd sized event, recommended great local vendors and put together a fantastic on the day service. Our guests raved about the event and in particular the amazing menu. A special shout out to the Hotel team who also tirelessly helped us with lots of back and forth on accommodation options for our international guests whilst balancing two weddings back to back! We will be back to celebrate many anniversaries to come. Thank you to everyone at The Duke! Kelly-Ann & Adam 26-01-20
