On the 23rd of September, my husband and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary at The Garden venue and they blew us away with their service. It was truly magical and soooo romantic. The honeymoon suite was covered in flower petals and a bottle of champagne was ready for us when we arrived 👌 a huge THANK YOU to Andile and her team. The food was Devine, not forgetting our lovely candle lit dinner by the balcony. Faith at reception always friendly and attentive, and the kitchen staff were amazing. In a nutshell,we are a happy couple and compliments to The Garden Venue staff for never dropping the ball ✨️❤️✨️

Felicia and her team were great, the staff is very friendly and always willing to help. The room was nice and cosy, allowing for good nights rest with zero disruption. The complimentary bottle of bubbles was a cherry on top.
