FUNCTION TESTIMONIALS

Please pass on your thanks to your entire events team.  Myself and assistant have worked many lunches and dinners across the state (and even Sydney), and hands down your crew were by far the best we have come across – so professional and accommodating.  I personally have attended lunches and breakfasts at the QCC as a guest but this was the first hosting an event and I cannot flaw any aspect of the event service we received.  The meals were also delicious, personally I had the chicken and it was mouth-watering – so compliments to the chef.

Georgie had a well set up room for us to hit the ground running when we arrived Friday morning.  And everything just went smoothly from there.  A special shout out to Sid who went the extra mile to ensure that my staff and I were well hydrated throughout the event with water and wine! But he also just checked in regularly to see if anything was required, that we had eaten and we were happy.  Was nice to have such personal service.

Please pass on my appreciation to the staff; every single one of them helped make the event the best we have had in a number of years.  Flawless service with great personality and professionalism.  I will be back to the QCC as a regular event host for similar activities due to the service of your staff.

I just want to say a very, very big thank you for such a lovely evening last night.

The staff were outstanding and very friendly and efficient.

The food was just magnificent!!!  Even the students thought it was wonderful and certainly had plenty to eat.  Being able to satisfy 17 year old boys is an achievement!!!

Of course the venue was just lovely and the lights on the oval added to the evening.

Would you please pass on my thanks and compliments to the chef and the staff who were there last night.

We held a dinner function with QLD Cricketers’ Club on 4th October and I just wanted to pass my feedback on, as I heard from my staff that the function was a huge success and my dealings with the event staff in the lead up far surpassed that of any other functions team I’ve worked with previously!

My managing directors said the night ran very smoothly and said staff took such great care of them on the night. They were also very impressed with the AV in the room, they said it was seamless and VERY easy to use…we’re now looking at updating the AV set up in our boardroom! Thank you also for organising to turn the lights on over the field, it looked great in the pictures (so strange seeing so many empty seats!!) and was a real treat to have.

I worked with Libby Cruice in the lead up the event, she was very accommodating and flexible with our requests, I wish I had the pleasure of working with someone like Libby at all the venues I deal with! She was always very prompt at getting back to me and made sure she offered lots of options and solutions to queries I threw at her, she was just fabulous!

We look forward to many more events at the QC Club.

A note of thanks for the exceptional service we received from you and the QCC staff on Friday night.

There were so many aspects of how you all combine to provide a smoothly run event. Your professionalism & patience in gathering all the details required for the evening,  the staff on the night assisting with room set up, audio/visual, overseeing dinner service, the dinner service staff, the excellent meal provided, the ambience of the room – it was stunning!  We received many compliments from those who attended our Awards evening, it was clearly a upbeat and successful evening.

The correspondence in the lead up was brilliant and the room, just WOW. You absolutely blew us away with out beautiful, elegant, romantic and perfect it was. It looked better than what I could have ever expected and I am so thankful for that. The head table with the fairy lights, just stunning. The lighting just perfect. The way the tables looked and our little extras of the photo frames and wishing well amazing. Our table numbers and menu’s which were personalised to us, SO special. And the seating plan on the mirror looked just magnificent, thank you so much for making that look so amazing. I absolutely could not improve one thing about the room at all, it was just spectacular.

Our arrival was just wonderful and your staff were so attentive to us, giving us a few moments just to relax before making our entrance making sure we had a bite to eat and a drink in our hand. My mother-in-law praised Sid especially saying he was brilliant with the guests before we arrived. His service and his attention to detail was perfect. He really made us feel like VIPs and very special indeed.

The food in general (and service) was AMAZING. So yummy. We are just so, so, so happy. Our guests had such a brilliant night.

I just wish I could do it all again in slow motion.

The girl working behind the bar that night said it was the most fun wedding she had worked at, and that was just lovely. That was our aim for everyone to be fun so the fact the staff had fun is brilliant.

A special mention has to go to the young gentleman that works behind the name, Jay, but he has probably been the most constant figure in the year lead up. Always there with a big smile on his face and aiming to please. He is absolutely brilliant and is a great asset to your team. Please pass on my gratitude to him.

With you on board, I would absolutely have no hesitation in recommending QCC to my friends who are looking at getting married, so thank you so much Chantelle. You were just wonderful.

The event on Saturday night was a huge success.

Congratulations to your staff on a job very well done.  The room looked great, the food was delicious and your staff were extremely pleasant, and very obliging ensuring the night ran smoothly.

The feedback from our members can be summed up by the enormous amount of times I was asked “can we have it here next year?”!!!!

Thanks again Samantha, you can pencil us in for next year!

Kylie SwepsonSandgate Cricket Club

We had our Awards Dinner at the Qld Cricketers Club last night and it was fantastic.  I could not fault the venue.  Thanks so much for organizing the event for us!

The room looked great in our colours.  We had the field lights turned on and that was awesome.  The food was delicious, the service was excellent, the staff were attentive , friendly and great.  The Duty Manager, Louis, had everything under control and the night ran so smoothly.  We had a little problem with the set up of the tables when we arrived, but that was sorted with Louis and then it was all great.  I’ve had so much positive feedback from our parents and guests.

So just wanted to say thanks and we are already thinking of having it there again next year as soon as we work out a date!

Thank you for hosting my event last Friday at your Club. It was THE BEST EVENT to date and I know that the venue was a major contributing factor! I will be back in Brisbane holding this event again at your club for sure!!

Mary TrantinoManaging Director

Since the evening itself, through until today, I have received phone calls and emails, and have been stopped so many times during my travels around the site by those who attended, thanking and congratulating me on the huge success of the evening. All of these accolades I am now passing through to you and your amazing staff, as each one of them contributed to an evening that was considered by all to be ‘perfect’… and from where I stood, knowing what had been arranged, the entire evening went without as much as one hitch or hic-cup.

From a personal perspective, Kristen was absolutely wonderful throughout the entire organising stage. She gave me full confidence that everything was under control, guided me when I needed guiding, and happily changed things as I changed my mind. Nothing ever seemed to be a problem to her. On the night, the initial welcome to me by various members of your staff was obviously extended to each of the guests throughout the evening, as it was mentioned numerous times how wonderful the staff were, and how wonderful their service was.

Please thank Sarah for helping me put my little bits and pieces into place; Samantha for popping in on her way home to introduce herself (which was so lovely after my many phone calls during the organising stage); and Louis for being so great throughout the evening. He had the room looking fantastic, kept me informed, and was constantly on hand and extremely helpful (in his lovely, cheery manner).

There are two highlights worthy of an extra special mention.

Firstly, the food. All courses, all options were absolutely superb, and beautifully presented. This was the comment from everyone. Also (from me), the timing of delivery to tables never faltered from the times provided by us. Our compliments and a huge thank you to your Chef for doing such a remarkable job.

Secondly, in a word… Sid. Sid’s name kept coming up time and time again for his attentiveness and lovely all round manner (and there was always a huge smile on the face of the person as they spoke). I know for me, as I was making my way around the room taking photo’s, I would get this gentle hand on my shoulder, turn around, and there was Sid with a huge smile and another glass of OJ! You certainly have a gem there.

You can feel very proud of your Team, Lachlan. Please pass my thanks through to everyone for the part they played, for it was them who made our evening the success it was.

Kindest Regards,

Raewyn

We were very pleased with an event we recently held at the QC Club. The attention to detail for our 2 day function was outstanding! Everything was on-time and represented good value for money. The culinary options, the meticulous staff, the iconic view and the easy access to free parking were all commented on by our attendees. We are particularly impressed with the Manager who went above and beyond in offering a spectacular raffle prize for our event. We have used this venue on serval occasions and highly recommend the QC Club.

The Energex Telco team had a fabulous night’s celebration last Saturday and were most impressed with the venue. Please pass our compliments to the Chef and support staff for the fantastic meal and to the team on the night for a very professional delivery. I’d like to particularly thank Jacob for his management during the evening, his adaptability, communication, style and manner was exceptional and a credit to the club. Please pass on my thanks also to the attending staff who were at all times attentive, cheerful and provided great service. Thank you, for setting up this evening for such a success.

Where do I start? First of all thanks to both Kristen and Amanda for the organisation of the evening. No request was too difficult and it was very professionally handled. Dan did an excellent job helping us set up the room and organising the Port for the toasts. The venue was perfect for our purposes and we will be recommending it to other Units in the Army for their functions.

The wait staff on the night – Sarah, Kate, Jacob and Liam did an exceptional job. They were very attentive, responded to our light banter and were extremely helpful with any requrest. Very very professional. The food as always was of a very high standard – particularly the canapes. The kitchen staff, as usual did a fabulous job. There was a little disappointment that Tabitha was not there – She has a cult status here at AMI for the wonders she produces in the kitchen. I was lucky enough to have my family there and they had a wonderful evening. The Commanding Officer of our Unit was very impressed and she is keen for us to ensure we use the Club again future functions.

So all in all – all of you made it a perfect night. We cannot thank you enough. Oh – one more special mention – to Louis for ensuring that Karryn and the CO got some chocolates!!

Well done to and thanks for a wonderful evening.

I would firstly like to thank you Kristen for all your help, especially for understanding our budget and what was available for us to have on the night. The place looked great and Louis and staff were amazing.  They met all our needs and the service was great!  Please thank the chef’s for their fabulous meals, as the feedback from the parents and children was very, very positive.

All the parents and children were very happy on the night.  We would like to thank the Cricketers’ Club for a great venue and an atmosphere that will live in their memory forever.  Everything went smoothly and  I will try and have more events at the Cricketers’ Club in the future.

Once again thank you.
