What people are saying about Functions at The Royal
THANK YOU so much. All your amazing arrangements worked out fantastically. Thank you for taking all the stress out for me I got to really enjoy my party. The staff were wonderful they were all so very helpful and always eager to assist especially Kat and the lovely Irish i think staff that took the dinner order. The Royal was so very busy but all the staff were always smiling and ready to help. Several of my guests mentioned how impressed they were with the venue and the staff. I also have to give special mention to the food not a complaint by anyone. Thanks again Ellie, I have passed on your details to a couple of friends.Brunella
Just wanted to thank you and your team @ The Royal for an amazing day yesterday. Myself, the "mother to be" - my sister and all the guests had a great time. Staff were so helpful, canapes were delicious & the venue was perfect. I'm sure we will pop by again soon and thanks again 🙂Jenny
We had an amazing time, it was just what we were after, all our guests had a really great time and all the staff on the day were so lovely. Thanks again for all your assistance and for making our Engagement Party a special day for us. Yes of course, feel free to use the photos and if you're able to send any our way we'd appreciate that too.Matt and Thom
Thanks so much for all your help getting me to the night. The staff were fantastic - we were very well looked after, the whole evening was seamless. The food - it was delicious - everybody commented on how great the the food was! And the bar - well it didn't run out which goes to show I need to increase my quotient of friends! All in all I had a great time and would not hesitate to recommend you as the perfect place to hold a party. Please pass on my gratitude to all who helped out on the night, and big thanks again to you for your calm and reassuring assistance in the planning - it was very much appreciated!Emily
Your service was exceptional and you made everything so easy! I know how difficult it can sometimes be to cater to some of the requests made but you didn’t even batter an eyelid so thank you!
The food was great as was the service and I will definitely be making my way back to the venue. It was my first time there but definitely not my last. Thanks again and I hope you have a great Christmas and awesome 2017!
I had a fabulous night as did my guests. The room was perfect for all of us and the balcony was certainly popular for those who got hot dancing and those who wanted to catch up to have a chat.
The food and punches were very popular with everyone the mock-tail in particular was very well received by the non drinkers.
My son in law Kye worked with Danni and the technician to get the sound system going and I really appreciate the effort there, as the music and having a dance was an essential part of the night for me.
I loved the 1956 facts board. Thank you for your help with putting that together it was a conversation point for everyone who read it.
I would like to thank Mary who looked after us on the evening, she was most pleasant and helpful with my and guests requests.
There was another young lady who assisted Mary with the delivery of the canapés she was also pleasant but I did not catch her name.
I would definitely recommend the venue to my family and friends who are looking for a function room such as yours Jacqueline included.
I hope to visit for dinner one evening in the near future.
I would also like to thank you Ellie for your assistance and advice in planning the function. I had rung a few venues in preparation of finding the most suitable place you were the first to get back to me and you had an energy that reassured me and my daughter Sara to stick with The Royal.
I hope you got some watermelon cake, I couldn't get back the next day to pick it up. So asked Danni to offer it to the staff.
Thank-you once again Ellie. I had a wonderful evening.
Saturday was awesome - I had such a great time. Mary was amazing and so helpful, and so was the rest of the team. The food and punch bowls were amazing and everyone had a great time. Thank you so much for your help - you really helped to make it a night to remember!Luella
