Being fully air-conditioned, with its own break out areas and having its own bar, The Butterfly Suite is a self-contained and independent venue allowing you to celebrate in complete privacy.

We can cater for up to 60 guests within The Butterfly Suite, but if you are thinking of a larger reception, we can provide a private marquee adjoining the rear of the suite, allowing us to cater for up to 220 people. 

Our food is lovingly prepared within our kitchen, and we can tailor menus to meet your own individualised requirements. We also have an extensive, well stocked cellar, so we are able to cater for your drink requirements including a good selection of sparkling wines and champagnes to accompany your celebration.

With our very own Steinway piano, and resident pianist, we can also arrange background live mood music for you.

Recently refurbished, The Butterfly Suite is decorated in a contemporary and eclectic style. Our ‘wall of mirrors’ adds interest and character to the main wedding reception area. In addition, the walls are adorned with artworks from local artists and designers adding to the quirky nature and atmosphere of the venue.
