  • Came here for an all day workshop. The location was quite nice being next to the rose garden and the park. Parking wasn't too difficult to find. The place itself was fairly spacious and clean. The food they provided was quite nice. They also changed the water bottles on the table regularly so it was always cool, which was really nice in summer. The only issue I had was the lack of air conditioning since the place did get quite hot especially when the sun was shining through the large windows.
  • Beautiful well kept place .. i have conducted a wedding here very popular for wedding photos Amazing fowers and plants as you walk around the gardens.
  • Love this place, its been over 10 years since i was here last - still the same 😁👍!
  • Wish there was more rose variety and nice smelling blooms. They obviously choose bushes for form not perfume. Still a great stroll in the CBD.
  • Nice qiuet place to visit. Pkmn lol.
