Conference & Meeting Testimonials

SARNZ Conference - August 2015

Thank you so much for the great service that you and all your staff provided.

Linda Birkby, Scaffolding, Access & Rigging NZ Inc.

Dairy Holdings Ltd - Timaru - 26-28 June 2015

Dairy Holdings Limited had the privilege of being able to hold its annual conference at the Edgewater Hotel on 26 June 2015 to 28 June 2015.

Our conference involved two days of presentations in the hotel’s conference facilities with up to 185 conference attendees. Throughout the two days, all meals and morning and afternoon teas were provided by the Edgewater Hotel.

It has become increasingly difficult for an organisation the size of Dairy Holdings Limited to be able to hold its annual conference within one venue that can provide the conference facilities to meet our catering and accommodation requirements. The Edgewater Hotel facilities were ideal in this regards and we found the staff and management pleasant, helpful and always willing to please.

We would have no hesitations in going back to the Edgewater Hotel in future.  Colin Glass, Chief Executive.

USANZ - New Zealand Section Meeting 2014 - 6 November 2014

On behalf of Mark Fraundorfer and Jane MacDonald, Convenors for the USANZ - New Zealand Section Meeting 2014, thank you so much for all you all did you ensure the Meeting was a huge success.

We found you all so welcoming and obliging, nothing was ever a problem.  Your pre-planning and attention to all of our requirements was excellent and we are most grateful for all you did to ensure everything went smoothly from the venue and accommodation perspective.

We will be definitely recommending your property to future clients and hope to bring another group to Edgewater in the future. - Melanie Robinson

Laverty Family Reunion - October 2014

The evening was a great success with two generations pleased to meet up again and a third generation in some cases meeting for the first time.

The food was excellent- the chocolates quite remarkable. We were looked after very well by your friendly staff, and there were many comments about the venue.It was such a pleasant setting.

Thanks so much for all your help and organization. June and Pippa.

Roxburgh Event - 6 September 2014

We were delighted with the setting and the newly refurbished Pavilion.  It was elegant, private and suited to meeting and greeting as well as dining.  As it was still daylight outside we had a splendid view of the trees, the Lake and the mountains and as darkness came the lights made it magical.  The room was warm and well lit.

The meal was absolutely delicious.  Everything was enjoyed and it all looked and tasted as good as it looked.  All my guests commented on the food several times.  The meats, salads and the desserts are perfect. The Ham was very juicy and particularly good.  Personally the Chocolate Mousse I thought was to die for!

Your staff were helpful and got into the spirit of things and were obliging when we needed some changes.  They remained polite to the end.

The Table settings were great with the black alternating with the white and the orchids in the centre of the tables provided all that was needed and looked very special.  It was good to be able to move around between tables as we had several generations present and many family members had not met before.

Thank you for being patient with the preliminary arrangements - it was all a great success. - Dame Alison Roxburgh

HC Partners LP - Chartered Accountants Timaru - May 2014

There has been nothing but rave comments from all the staff who stayed at Edgewater.  Everybody thoroughly enjoyed everything about the weekend and for that we thank you.  Staff Superb.  You should be very proud of them all.  From the front reception to the bar staff and waiting staff.  They were all friendly, efficient and very obliging. 

Malloch McLean - 24 August 2013
We were all very impressed with our whole experience staying with Edgewater, the food was amazing and all the accommodation and meal staff were so co-operative and had great communication,
Also with people puling out at last minute and being very stressful for us organising it, your team were terrific to deal with and anything we had to change seemed no problem at all, I would also like to thank you for the special consideration you gave to our gluten free guests.
We have had a lot of praise from staff about the meal and how delicious it was, we would happily recommend Edgewater to others.

CRT Livestock Meeting – 26-27July 2013
Every aspect of our experience was exceptional.  All facets of our stay, including the Conference facilities, food and accommodation, were outstanding.  What was quoted to me, both in terms of cost and actual product was delivered without fail.  I have had an overwhelming amount of positive feedback from both our staff and our guests.  
The service I, and my staff received from yourself, George, Fiona, Callum and the other Hayley was five star and I will be absolutely be recommending your complex to anyone I hear needs your services.  Please pass my thanks onto everyone that assisted in making our conference the absolute success it was.

NZ Association of Women in Aviation - 31 May - 3 June 2013

You are very professional and remained in good communication throughout the organising phase, you also were a good prompt to deliver answers from our end!

The Edgewater Hotel Staff were very accommodating, communicated and worked in well with the timing of procedures throughout the evening. It is reassuring to have a duty manager on deck who knows the IT requirements to get the laptop hooked correctly with the projector.

I look forward to working with Edgewater Hotel again.

New Zealand Community Boards Conference - 9-11 May 2013

Thank you and your team for working so hard towards the success of the Community Boards Conference.  We had great feedback from the delegates and client alike.

The functions ran smoothly thanks to Superwoman Gaynor, Hannah and Callum.  The conference dinner was particularly impressive getting that many peeps fed and tables all tidy by 9pm.

Special thanks to your team at the front desk who worked patiently with us on Thursday night with cancellations and late arrivals.  And kept us in the loop throughout with updates.

And we had no issues on site regarding accommodation which was a credit to Joy, Emma, Hayley and Fiona’s hard work leading up to the event.  Mandy Train - Conference Innovators Ltd

Yoga Retreat - Autumn 2013

Thank you! to Hayley and the team at Edgewater for providing such a wonderful venue and service for my Autumn Yoga Retreat.  All participants found the resort completely met their expectations for a luxurious weekend of rest and relaxation.  The food was fabulous and the setting just perfect with the still water and autumn leaves.  We are all looking forward to coming back again.

Jessica Somerville - Trust Power - December 2012

We really enjoyed the venue!  The room was beautifully laid for when we arrived, and although it was cosy – it wasn’t too small for our requirements.  The food I sampled was fantastic, and the staff lovely and they were very patient.  Rooms were beautifully situated also!  Would not hesitate is using this venue again.

Deidre Graham - Ashton Wheelans - December 2012

Everything was perfect!!! The service was its usually amazing self, food was delicious and the room was just perfect!    The young chap who was on duty that day and was assigned to looking after us was really helpful and looked after us very well. Please pass on my thanks and let the bosses know how great they all were.   We will be back in the New Year to run some more.

Colin Blackie - NZ Police - December 2012
