Ellis and all the staff were so wonderful to deal with. Each and every staff member was so friendly and willing to help. We felt we were in very safe hands and would absolutely recommend it as a venue for any occasion. Our guests all were raving about the food and service Behind the scenes we had a lot of communication and couldn't get over the flexibility offered to us, even down to what colour we wanted the lights to be! Just all round fabulous.

Rob and I got married here on 10th Feb 2024.
Ellis, the wedding coordinator, is the most fantastic person to have look after every fine detail of your wedding day. She went through packages, menu tasting, and the extras we wanted to include, and the day went so smoothly and perfectly—what a dream.
Claire and Brian looked after us on the day of the wedding, making sure we were all on time for the ceremony, pictures, and reception evening. They are lovely, friendly staff.
We have received so many compliments on what a fantastic day it was, and it was definitely down to a fantastic team and stunning venue.
Guests with dietary requirements also expressed gratitude for the variety and for not having the same basic meal they had in other places.
5*, not one complaint.
Thank you

Better than perfect.
My now husband and I got engaged in the Maryborough, the staff on the night were so excited for us, they felt like friends and the hotel quickly became a special location for us.

A friend of ours asked if we were going to get married there too and recommended we meet Ellis, their amazing Wedding Coordinator, needless to say, Ellis could answer any question, provided supplier recommendations, help us outline the day from start to finish. We'd pop in for a coffee, lunch or a celebratory dinner.

In the midst of Covid, the hotel went above and beyond to help us reschedule and make sure we kept the planning magic and excitement. We stayed the night before the wedding and got separate rooms to be somewhat traditional! Getting ready in the hotel was so relaxing and it meant from the second we drove down the hill, we could enjoy the wedding build up. I had crept down the stairs of the main house to peep out a window to see my husband and his groomsmen getting ready on their balcony, the wedding photographers had given me a heads up, and they were there - it's a fantastic photo and memory now.

Our bridal party and families loved the hotel and my heart burst with happiness (and maybe nerves) when the doors to the Orangery opened and it was full of our friends and family.

The Orangery is like something that comes to life out of a fairy tale storybook, full of light, flowers, candles and honestly, the photos from there are all more beautiful than the last. The drinks reception was hosted there and the room carries music and laughter like you've never experienced.

The wedding meal was in the banquet room and the tone and setting changing to soft lights, chandeliers and fairy branches at the entrance is exquisite. Our guests raved about the food (and the wine), and, the staff on the floor, bar and entire hotel couldn't have been more helpful.

We danced the night away with our friends and families, I couldn't recommend the Maryborough highly enough, it is a dream venue.

Magical Maryborough. Must-see venue.
We were married in March and everything was marvellous. Ellis was a dream to deal with and everything she promised was delivered by the team with elegance and effortless professionalism. The Orangery was gorgeous for our ceremony and perfect for dinner and dancing for our small wedding. The whole venue was photographed beautifully. Our guests remarked on the exquisite food & wine, the quality of the service from very friendly staff and also the character of the venue itself. The fitness centre and spa are 5-star with wonderful staff. We are so grateful to everyone for going over and above to make our wedding such a memorable celebration.
The gold standard of wedding venues. Highly recommend the Maryborough.

Ellis and the wonderful team at the Maryborough,
John and I are still basking in the glow of our wedding day, and we simply cannot express enough gratitude for the exceptional experience you provided at the Maryborough. From the moment we chose Maryborough as our wedding venue, we knew it was the perfect place to bring our dream wedding to life, and you exceeded every expectation.

Your support, understanding, and attention to detail were evident in every aspect of our special day. From the stunning decor to the impeccable service, everything was flawless, and we are endlessly grateful for your hard work and dedication.

Ellis, your expertise and guidance were invaluable throughout the planning process. Your unwavering commitment to ensuring our day was perfect did not go unnoticed, and we are truly thankful for your kindness and professionalism.

The Maryborough holds a special place in our hearts, not just as the backdrop to our wedding, but as the venue where memories were made that we will cherish for a lifetime.

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for making our wedding day more magical than we could have ever imagined.

We cannot recommend the Maryborough highly enough after our wonderful wedding experience. From the first phone call to the final check in with us on the day itself, our wedding coordinator Ellis was so kind, warm, friendly and attentive to our needs. During the planning process we knew we could email or arrange a meeting about any concerns or questions, even the tiny details. We were always made to feel very welcome and taken care of every time we visited the hotel, in particular when we stayed the night for our menu tasting. We found Ellis' attention to detail very reassuring; everything was clarified, particularly as regards decor, timing of the day and food for our guests. We were lucky to have a sunny wedding day so our guests were able to enjoy the drinks reception outside in the garden. Many have complimented the hotel's excellent service and food on the day as well as the beautiful surroundings. All of our requests were taken care of and we never felt like we were asking too much including small but important things like moving and arranging decor items. Despite 2022 being the year of multiple weddings we were always made to feel like we were the only ones in the world getting married! Every couple wants to feel that their day is special and ours certainly was. The gardens, fountain and front entrance provided a lovely setting for our photos and the Maryborough will be a memorable place for us to come back to in the years to come.

Ellis and the team at the Maryborough looked after us so well on our special day. To say we were happy with how things went is an understatement. 5 star service . We can’t wait to go back again!

We will always be so grateful to Ellis and all the help she gave us in the run up to the wedding, helping with all the plans and critically remaining calm and organised throughout! So organised she often knew far more about what was going on than us (especially the groom :-)) Nothing was too much trouble and she was always willing to listen and think about how she could tailor the day to make it special for us. We always felt safe in her hands and her advice was invaluable.

On the day the Maryborough really came into their own. We always felt that our wedding was special to all the staff and they seemed to know what we needed before we did. Knowing when we might need a moment to ourselves or even helping to find lost phones, they were always on hand keeping the day going but never pushy and always fun!

We wouldn't hesitate in recommending the Maryborough to anyone and thanks to everyone, especially Ellis, for making our day such a lovely day for us and all our guests. I'm not sure this review does do the Maryborough justice, but thank you for everything,

We would like to say a massive thank you so much to you and all the team at the Maryborough Hotel for the amazing job with our wedding day. We did everything there (meal the night before, ceremony in the orangery, drinks reception and meal).

We can honestly say from the very first day that we met Ellis, our wedding coordinator, to the day of the event itself - that nothing was ever too much trouble or an inconvenience. Ellis and her team were able to take exactly what we were looking for from our day and transform it into reality. We could not have been happier with how it all went. The whole team went beyond our expectations at every opportunity.

In addition to Ellis and Donagh and the wedding team, who did an exceptional job throughout we would also say a big thank you to the banqueting team, the reception staff, the security man at the end of the evening, and the management team. The feedback from our guests has been overwhelmingly positive and we will be happily singing The Maryborough's praises for many years to come. We just wish we could do it all over again!

We would highly recommend the Maryborough as a wedding venue.

We had our wedding in the Maryborough at the start of June and it was amazing. The staff from start to finish were absolutely fantastic. Ellis, our Wedding Coordinator, was great to deal with from day one and the end result on the day of our wedding exceeded all expectations. We are delighted that we chose the Maryborough for our wedding. The Orangery was perfect for the ceremony, the gardens were ideal for our wedding photos and the food was a massive hit with the guests. We had the perfect day and it was thanks to the staff at the Maryborough. Their attention to detail, friendliness and hard work was incredible.
