We had our Wedding at Frensham Pond Hotel in June because it was the best location in our area and had a reasonable price.
The hotel gave us a menu tasting session before the wedding which helped us choose the food. The events team were also very helpful in the lead up to the wedding with planning and organisation.
During the day it was all very seemless, which allowed me (the groom) to mingle with guests, without worrying about anything.
The evening entertainment was excellent and the hotel organised all of the left stuff to be stored safely.
We organised most suppliers through the hotels contacts including; a lockbox for gifts, chair covers and DJ.
The hotel provide an egraved cake knife which was an excellent touch.
The willow suite was lovely and good experiance to bring quests upto the personal balcony.
All the guests were very impressed with the venue, we would recommend the venue to anyone looking for a great scenic location wih excellent service

We recently had our wedding at the Frensham Pond Hotel. The whole day was absolutely perfect and exceeded our expectations. A huge thank you to Mala and Prenessa for their event co-ordinator services - your patience, experience and approachability really helped during the planning stages and on the day itself. The staff at the hotel (special thanks to Dan for arranging our rooms) were also amazing and went out of their way to make sure the day was exactly what we wanted. We had to accommodate a lot of family/friends from overseas and across the country and this venue ticked all our boxes. All of our guests thought the hotel and setting was beautiful and many commented that they would be sure to return for a weekend away. We are already looking forward to coming back in a year's time to celebrate our anniversary and to using the new spa facilities.Can't recommend the hotel more highly!
wedding of Kat & Ben
By George Windsor, on 30 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Sep 2017
The Hotel location, bedrooms, staff and attention to detail were first class. When you book a venue to hold a family wedding, in this case for our daughter Kathryn to Ben, you have obvious worries about how well the venue and staff will handle all that is required, it naturally holds plenty of scope for things to go wrong. Not only did we need to hold a reception at the Hotel but we also wanted it to hold a Civil Wedding ceremony as well. Their Events Coordinator Prenessa Chetty and Events Manager Mala Dowd took all that we needed in their stride making the setting up and later layout and services changes look easy to accomplish when no doubt they weren't. The quality of the food and service was top class, many of our guests, a good number of them 'mature in years' said it was the best Wedding Fayre they had ever experienced and many of them commented on the superb location and outlook. The Frensham Pond Hotel really is an ideal Wedding venue we can thoroughly recommend

I am just writing to thank you and all your wonderful team at the hotel for all their help and efforts to make the wedding such a memorable occasion. During the last year you have guided us every step of the way , however large or small , to enable us to get things right. Everybody had nothing but praise for the meal and proceedings and staff at the reception and for their entire stay at the hotel. I really cannot thank you enough.
When Kate and Matt return from their honeymoon I know that they will want to write a review online to reiterate the above commendations.
Thank you so much again Mala.
Best Wedding venue
By Joanna and Anthony Crossiant, on 04 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 17 Jun 2017
My husband and I had our wedding reception here on the 17th June 2017. The staff are amazing very helpful. Our day run so smoothly due to the organisation of Mala.
Mala was such a help and made sure I had no stress on the day. I gave Mala my ideas and of how I wanted the room to look and was blown away when I walked in to the reception after it had been dressed by her and her staff. It was the most beautifully dressed room I had seen and even better than I could have imagined.
The food was delicious and I am still having people comment on how nice the food and service was.
The venue is so beautiful being on the pond. We were very lucky to have one of the best sunny days of the year and the grounds looked amazing.
All my guest at the wedding enjoyed their selves and said they had a lovely time and couldn’t get over how nice the venue was.
The rooms were spotless and clean. They were also kept nice and cool for the weather that we had.
Bar prices are also very reasonable for food and drinks.
With all of the help from the staff at Frensham ponds they made our special day one of the best days of our lives.
I would recommend anyone to have their wedding at this venue.
thank you for making our day so special.
Antony and Jo

Clearly the owners take great pride in this property and that is reflected in the lovely decor in all areas. We stayed in 'Willow' which is a huge suite with a 'wow' bathroom and a large, private outdoor balcony with a luxury lounger where you can relax and watch the wildlife on Frensham Pond. Staff could not have been more...

By APRIL & GREG CARRATU, on 04 Sep 2012
We got married on the 21st July and would like to say that our day was fabulous and this was down to Mala, Kevin and the great team Frensham. The food was amazing, the service was second to none and nearly all of our 103 guests said it was the best wedding they have ever attended! The attention to detail was amazing and nothing was too much trouble for Mala and her team. My husband and I would like to sincerely thank Mala for everything, from the pre-planning right up to the day. You made our day very special and we will never forget that! April & Greg

WEDDING 2ND AUGUST 2012
By AMISH & SAIJAL, on 04 Sep 2012
We had our registry and mehndi function in Frensham Pond Hotel in August. We can't compliment them enough. They were very organised and ran through everything with us, which forced us to be organised as well! We kept changing plans and they accommodated for this without any fuss. They did things that we not expected of them, for example printing and laminating our table names, which is a small gesture but it meant it was one less thing that we had to worry about. They are one of the few that allow outside caterers.
Even for the mehndi function, which they had not organised before or knew much about, they were keen to make it as perfect as possible for us.
A special mention to Mala, who was awesome throughout our planning, and to Nikhil who made sure everything ran smoothly on the day.
