Can I just take this opportunity to thank you for what was an extremely successful event! We found the venue worked perfectly, the canapes were beautiful, the service impeccable, and the help of yourself and James on the night was greatly appreciated. I really must say Mantells on the Water is quite simply the best venue we have ever used! Our guests were very impressed, and we've been receiving glowing reports and thanks ever since! Please pass on our thanks to the team. ” - Caroline Clegg, Auckland
Morning Jane and on behalf of both the Lucas and Lees families we wanted to thank you and your wonderful team for an althogether awesome wedding on Saturday evening. As Paul our MC mentioned in his speech, the venue, food and your staff were absolutely fantastic and played such an important part, and added such great atmosphere to a lovely evening. We cannot thank you and your team enough for making it extra special. I know that as soon as Fiona saw the venue, she knew that this was where she wanted to get married and she was so right- it was perfect.
Thank you also for all your help, guidance and flexibility shown to us throughout the lead up and of course on the night. ” - Chris Lucas, Auckland

Your wonderful venue and fantastic staff really made the evening very special. ” - Deb Horwood, Auckland
Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for last night, everything went to plan, the food was lovely and plentiful, the staff were attentive and adapted to any changes we made during the night and everyone had a good time.
We would definitely recommend Mantells on the Water to anyone wanting to host a corporate function. ” - Michelle, Cathay Pacific, Auckland
I'm not sure quite how to express my gratitude for last weekend: you guys were consummately fantastic, and delivered on every level. The place looked wonderful, and the service was incredibly personal. Every request and instruction was heeded, and each tiny detail noted and attended to. Your staff were inflappable, perfectly-presented and unfailingly polite. You treated us and our guests like royalty, and made the reception a complete and utter pleasure.
I'd been an exacting client, I know: you fielded my barrage of emails with efficiency on every front, and your attention to detail was superb. The setup was exactly how I envisaged it, all my family members and vendors enjoyed working with you, and nothing seemed too difficult. You provided easels and cake slices, moved our cake during the evening, and executed our seating plan perfectly. (You acknowledged how special - and important - the day was to us: just another function for you, but certainly it didn't FEEL like that whatsoever. We felt like guests of honour).
The food was superlative: our guests were deeply impressed. We loved the floating buffet style, and were particularly enamoured with the salmon, Sicilian cherry tomato tarts and slow-roasted pork shoulder; as well as all four desserts on the petit-fours plate. The courses flowed seamlessly, plates were cleared with impeccable efficiency, and all our guests with specific dietary requirements were supremely well catered-to. Glasses were refilled, water offered, technical issues addressed. We've had copious feedback on the excellent fare.
We can't thank you enough, really: I am SO glad we chose to use you, and your impeccable reputation is very well-deserved. You are a truly top-notch establishment, and I'll sing your praises far and wide. ” - Kate Duggan, Auckland
Thank you all so much for making our day so special and stress free! The wedding reception at Mantells on the Water was stunning. Our guests loved the floating buffet and the food was amazing!! People keep on talking about it... I cannot recommend Mantells highly enough. It was perfect - Thank you to you and all the staff that helped out on the day. I now see why Mantells has such a great reputation. I would definitely highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to host a wedding in the future. You really made the day special!! ” - Caroline & Bruce, Auckland
Hi Jane, well we just wanted to say a big 'thank you' for everything, we were both so happy with... well, everything. The food, the service, YOU, the venue, the build up, the atmosphere... everything was so great, we both couldn't have wished for a better time. You won't need any promotion but I will recommend everybody to look no further than your ultimate new venue. Well done, and thanks again. ” - Braedyn & Davina, Auckland

Huge thanks for the excellent job done by you both and the Mantells team to make our wedding such an amazing event on Friday.
