Melanie and the team did a magnificent job yesterday. The food was delicious and the service excellent.
Everyone present was very complimentary and I cannot thank you all for the great job you did to organise the event . The venue was perfect in size and everything went as planned.
Please pass on my thanks to the team and I will definitely use Metropolitan again.
The venue was very suitable, the food was ample, and tasty. Your table service was very efficient, friendly and helpful. We thank Shaun for his frequent updates on the Bar Tab bill (they were thirsty boys and girls). Shaun and yourself ensured that everything ran smoothly.
Everything went perfectly on Saturday, we had a lovely time and our guests did too.
Also, thanks so much for all your help and being so organised right through leading up to the wedding. It was so important to have a venue and function manager on top of things (and your very thorough first email was part of the reason why we picked The Metropolitan).
Shaun was ace at getting things sorted on the night which we really appreciate - please pass on our thanks to him. We were also very impressed with our photographer Michael and our DJ did a super great job as well.
Thank you for hosting our event and, from all I have heard so far, everybody had a great time. We will certainly keep your venue top of mind for any future events.
Have a wonderful festive season and start to 2019.
We all had such a great night !
The staff on the night were fabulous. Shaun and Emily were so accommodating and made sure all our needs were met. All the staff went out of their way to ensure that everything went perfectly. The food was wonderful, everyone loved the variety of beers on tap, the staff were so helpful and friendly and helped in the set up and pack up. I couldn’t praise your team highly enough. They were amazing.
We took our time to fine a venue that ticked all the boxes for us and you didn’t let us down !
Everything went really well on Friday night so thank you very much for all your work bringing it all together. The food was really good – everyone was pleased. The bar ran really well also, so all up made for a really good smooth-running evening.
Thank you firstly for EVERYTHING like everything it couldn’t of been more perfect if I tried.
The staff were amazing, bar staff incredible. Shaun was amazing, just everything was how we wanted it.
Everything went so well, many happy faces.
Thank you so much for your organisation, all went to plan except I did speaker longer than I thought – usually happens when I get a microphone lol
The staff were very friendly and helpfully so please pass on my sincere thanks to them all, nothing was a problem…
Thanks for your help running such a lovely event! The staff were great (special shout-out to Emily!), and we all had a great night.
It was a great night – everyone had a marvellous time and most new people asked how I’d found such a wonderful place to hold a function.
The food was excellent and service also very professional.
We had a great night thank you and this was in no small part due to the excellent facilities, functions team, food and bar staff at the Metropolitan.
The room looked great on arrival, everything was well organised around the food and bar. The night was a great success.
Dear Barbara, Shannon, Mel, Shaun,
Phil and I would like to Thank you all for providing the perfect venue for Chris’s 21st. The food was perfect, the choice of beers and wine were perfect and the Cake cutting was expert. Chris’s mates mentioned that they were able to get their drinks quickly and they had so much fun. The follow up meetings prior to the event to discuss the night were efficient and everyone involved on the night helped make the night run smoothly. The photos look great and the venue looked so stylish.
Memorable night had by all
Hi Barbara. We had a wonderful night. So much fun and dancing. The microphones for speeches were perfect. The band set up perfect. The staff , food , drinks all went well. Very happy with everything. Thank you very much
Super happy with the venue and security and we loved it all.
We have sent out a survey to those that attended the function and the feedback was great. In terms of what they thought was the best part of the night - venue as well as food and drinks were in the top three responses.
Special thanks to Emily (I hope I got her name right) for all of her hard work on the night. She was just a dream to work with and created such a good vibe for us.
We would recommend others having an event at the Metropolitan Hotel.
I am emailing to thank you for your help and service with regards to our birthday function on Saturday night.
From the first phone call to the Metropolitan, the process to arrange Theodore’s 21st birthday was seamless.
The service, food and attentiveness to detail was exceptional.
The bar staff and floor staff were great.
Theodore’s 21st birthday was a great success, our guest found the space very inviting and comfortable.
The birthday card to Theodore was a beautiful touch.
Looking forward to coming back to the Metropolitan for a dinner.
Many thanks to you and your team !
Firstly, thanks for all the work that you guys put in last Thursday. Everything went off exceptionally well and initial feedback has been very well received. I’d also like to give a big thanks to the 2 ladies behind the bar who were very diligent and helped me out heaps with the microphone and a few other things.
Last night was the best night ever.
Where do I begin:
The room was amazing and better than we could have imagined.
The floor and bar staff were great and very attentive towards our guests.
The food was absolutely fantastic and all compliments to the chefs and all kitchen staff on the night.
Special thanks to Shaun, Bianca, Mel and Barbara for making the day as special as it could have been.
Thank you again, by all accounts it was a fantastic night.
Please pass on my thanks to your staff.
I really liked the venue – prefer it to our other venue. Food was excellent – tasty and plenty of it and also good variety of choices, good natural light from surrounding windows and the room setting/format was ideal for us.
Location is excellent – a brief walk from here.
Thank you for hosting us this weekend. We had the best time and will definitely be back. The staff were incredibly welcoming and the effort that they went to to accommodate us did not go unnoticed. All the feedback we received was nothing but positive. Thank you again.
We had a lovely time on Friday, everything was fabulous. The venue was great and the staff were fantastic.
We will be back for our next function.
Thank you for everything.
Everything was perfect, and the food was delicious! Thank you so much for hosting us at such short notice, the whole team thought the space was great.
I just wanted to thank you and your team for putting on an amazing night for us last Friday. This was our 6th year hosting our Trivia at The Metropolitan Hotel and was one of the best we have had.
The staff on the night were so great to deal with, especially Shannon who I have dealt with the last few years. She is amazing and really made the night easy from my end.
I did receive particular feed back from our guests that the food was extra delicious and they were very impressed that every meal came out hot. Can you please pass my thanks on to the chefs for a wonderful job.
Lastly, I would really like to thank you for all that you did to make the whole event run as smoothly as possible. You were an absolute delight to deal with and I love how organised you are. I have dealt with a lot of function managers over the years at many different venues and you are one of a kind. You were prompt with all replies and were able to meet my every need and annoying changes towards the end. You really made the whole process super easy. The Metropolitan is lucky to have you.
I will be in touch next year to book our 7th Trivia night with you guys,
Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your staff for a great event on Friday night. Everyone really enjoyed themselves, and we appreciate all of your efforts!
We had a great night, than you for having us. The staff especially were excellent and catered for a few changes on the night that we appreciated.
Great venue and we will think of you again for any upcoming events.
Thank you for all your work putting together our wedding on Saturday - it was an amazing day, and a large part of that is due to how smoothly your team ran everything! I particularly got a lot of very positive comments on the food, so please pass on our thanks to your chef. Thanks also for being so flexible in working with us - it really was exactly what we’d hoped for.
The team at the Metropolitan Hotel were fantastic! They made the planning process of my 21st so easy and enjoyable. My guests and I all had a fabulous time on the night, the food was delicious and the whole night went smoothly with no problems whatsoever! I would recommend the Metropolitan Hotel to anyone looking for an ideal Melbourne venue to host any event
