Considering the climate in which our event was held in – amidst the pandemic, the team did a wonderful job keeping us up to date on any policies/restrictions and successfully created an event which captured our vision in a COVID safe manner.
The Ponds High School
We can’t thank you enough for all the support and organisation leading up to the event, and then how smoothly the event ran on the night. An awesome experience at Doltone House and a wonderful team to have worked with.
I thought the COVID management plan was more than sufficient. It was obvious that Doltone House has abided by the Government regulations but has also adhered to the department of Education’s guidelines too.
Strathfield Girls High School
We held a ‘Year 10 Formal’ for Menai High School with 209 guests at Doltone House in Sylvania Waters. Menai High School has been holding formals at this particular venue for many years and this Formal was said by the school’s Executive staff to have been one of the school’s best yet.
Christie was the event manager that I dealt with in the lead-up. Her commitment and dedication to her role ensured for smooth sailing, particularly when it came to the development of our schools COVID Safety Plan. Being the first time we’d had to complete the plan, we had a lot of questions for Christie. She was so very helpful and it was great to get to work with someone who knew exactly what they were doing. Christie was always available via phone, she responded to emails and messages quickly and never left a question/problem unsolved.
Maddie was our event manager on the night and she worked tirelessly from the moment I stepped foot into the venue to ensure that all guests were happy and received the best possible service. Maddie checked in with me regularly during the night to discuss where the chef was at with meals, solve problems and answer questions from myself or other staff. She also led the team of waiters to set up the function beautifully – the room looked spectacular when we arrived. Maddie is one of the most professional, hard-working and efficient staff members I’ve ever seen at a function – she is amazing!
The combination of these staff members set our event up for success from the get-go – we are really looking forward to holding another event with Doltone House next year.
Menai High School
The staff were wonderful on the night. The food was awesome The room looked amazing. Claudia was great with all of our last minute details and answering all of my questions and Suzie was great with initial booking info. Thank you, the students had a wonderful time.
Chef & team: food amazing. Waiters: all great. The 2 supervisors on the night and lady directing waiters and proceedings was wonderful. The gentleman watching the attendees and making sure social distancing was done was wonderful and very collaborative working with parents to ensure the students remembered to social distance. Claudia was great answering all of my worries & questions leading up to the event. Thank you to all.
Woolooware High School
Planning this huge event for my daughter Year 10 formal was bigger than I originally expected; however, from the time I booked to the actual evening of the formal I was put at ease by all staff who I dealt with along the way.
Communication via phone, email and in person was exemplary and I was impressed by the level of professionalism with everybody I dealt with. Thank you for making this experience smooth. You never know, I might just put my hand up to organise the Year 12 Formal 😉
Caringbah Public School
Every year the staff at Doltone House go above and beyond to make our event a huge success. Even this year with additional restrictions, the service we received both before the event and during was amazing. During the planning stage, both Trey and Rachel answered numerous queries in relation to restrictions etc. to ensure we were fully informed. On the evening Aneesh and Aaron (along with the rest of the staff) were amazing. Thank you again – see you next year.
St Andrew’s Cathedral School
The evening was an outstanding success and I really would like to compliment Brendan and June, who looked after us that night. Nothing was a problem for them, even when we had one or two last minute changes with seating. They were professional, friendly and went over the top to ensure the night was a huge success. The venue looked amazing, the food was delicious and the service fantastic.
The DJ’s knew how to work the crowd and the kids loved being able to dance (those that wanted to) and I’ve been told the music selection was a hit. Also thanks to Alastair the photographer, we look forward to seeing the photos! A huge thank you to to Laura for all her work, her flexibility and patience in working with us, her suggestions and her general assistance in planning the event.
Cammeraygal High School
All students and staff had a lovely time on Friday night. As we really didn’t expect to be able to go ahead with the formal this year, it was great to see the students celebrating and enjoying themselves after the difficult circumstances surrounding their final school year.
The service and food were excellent, the room set-up, including the large dance floor, worked very well for the COVID restrictions. All the staff were very helpful and obliging and the whole event ran very smoothly thanks to the professional attitude of Doltone House staff.
Again, thank you Cassandra for your support during the organisation of this event… my last. I retire at the end of the year and am so pleased to finish on a high.
De La Salle Catholic College
I have been to many event functions at all sorts of places around Sydney and around the world. I have never had the quality of food that I had today. That was too restaurant quality, which for a venue serving 400 people was extraordinary.
And your staff were awesome. Nothing was wanting, yet it was as if they were not there.
