“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your teams efforts in looking after our conference needs recently. As you know this was one of a number of occasions when we have used your venue for our Company Leadership training and once again you didn’t let us down.

For me as a facilitator you make the process easy by remembering the setup  preferred and having it all arranged before I get there, along with ensuring that any assistance needed is provided in a timely and friendly way. The food once again was very tasty, plentiful and a great variety over the 4 days. I should add that’s not just me talking but most of the attendees also commented on how much they enjoyed the food. I know a number of them came to you personally to make those comments and I rarely see that when I run programs at other Centers.

As for the venue and grounds themselves, there is no doubt in my mind its one of the best I have used. A stunning house set amongst the gardens where one can focus and at the same time relax accordingly during the breaks. We were also lucky enough in this last couple of courses to experience the hundreds of Monarch butterflies you have on the grounds during their short life cycle.

So once again thanks to you and the team and we will see you on the next program.” Mike Hogan, Conference, 2015

Thank You

“Words can not describe how amazing we think Newbery Lodge is.

You guys were completely faultless! We had what we would call the most perfect wedding day and will cherish those wonderful memories for years to come. Many of our guests have commented how it was the best, nicest, coolest wedding they have ever attended, which ultimately refelects back to Sharon and all your gorgeous, efficient staff. We wish we could do it all over again. We love you!”                     Kylee and Jeff (Wedding), April 2015


“We feel that our wedding went off flawlessly, and think a lot of that was down to you and your amazing team at Newbery Lodge. Anna and Reuben

It was such a great day, a great venue with awesome staff and the food was to die for (we had a lot of comments on the melt-in-your-mouth beef). Many of our guests have said to us that the day was so easy going, relaxed and the best wedding that they’ve been to.

We appreciate the effort that was put into our day on your behalf, and we can’t thank you enough. Thank you for helping us put together the best day of our lives!

Thank you once again from a very happy Bride and Groom”                                                   Anna and Reuben Beer (Wedding), April 2015


“Thank you so much again to you and your team for such an amazing day that we will never forget. Everyone who came cannot stop singing the Lodges praises…

…Once again, our heart felt thanks to you and your team.”                                                       Mark and Robert (Wedding), February 2015


“My mother-in-law phoned me last night to detail how fabulous her afternoon was and how much she and her sisters enjoyed their high-tea. I haven’t heard her this excited for a while; she was fair buzzing!

They loved the food, loved the atmosphere and the personal attention from your greeting just topped off their day. It’s the little things that make a simple event one to remember and your customer service has definitely put this into that categorGeneral Copyrighty.

Thank you so much for all the little touches you added that made this a great experience for all involved; from my end it was seamless being able to book such an event from out of town, being able to organise such a great gift for 4 wonderful mothers from their children was awesome.”     Sel Leigh – Mother’s Day High Tea, May 2014


“The event yesterday was great – everything ran like clock-work and Lynne was wonderful – very professional , yet friendly and welcoming. In fact she remembered meeting me with yourself (Sharon), I think ,when our company was involved last year with the National Kitchen and Bathroom Assoc. awards dinner (as I am the local Chairperson) and Laminex hosted a cocktail event prior to the dinner at Wigram. Your food was great yesterday – everyone loved it and the venue size was ideal.

We’ll certainly keep you in mind for further functions that we run, so thanks again.”        Trish Frankland, Laminex New Zealand (corporate event), March 2014

“I really enjoyed our wedding at Newbery Lodge and all of my guests have NL - Wait staff in Kitchencommented on how good the food and staff were.

I have already referred two people to Newbery Lodge one who has already had her wedding and one that is coming up so I am definitely happy to keep recommending Continental.

Please give my thanks to Julia, Laura and the whole team that served us; they were all amazing” Amanda Tasker (bride), February 2014
