“excellent service and facilities for our wedding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

We were married at Chateau Elan in August and we can't speak highly enough of the facilities at the venue and the services of Timothy the wedding co-ordinator. Our room we stayed in was lovely too with a huge bed and lovely views. Even our photographer raved about the service at Chateau Elan. It may be helpful to know that the restaurant is run seperately to the accomodation and so the food for a wedding is different to the restaurant. That being said we had a nice breakfast at the restaurant the day before and they also were very welcoming to our bridal party the night before for canapes. The golf buggies for the wedding day are so much fun as well. Thanks again Tim and all the staff at Chateau Elan.

The facilities were excellent and the staff second to none. The restaurant service was very slow,but when the food arrived it was satisfactory but not very hot. I thorougly enjoyed my time in the spa it was exactly what you would expect from a 5 star establishment.

Room Tip: Villa overlooking golf course. If you are lucky you can have breakfast with Kangaroos . There were 1...

My wife and I have had many stays at the Chateau Elan and it just keeps getting better. The staff are some of the most professional you will come across. The leadership from the General Manager Joseph sets the high standard that is reflected through everything in and around the resort. The rooms are well laid out and maintained to a very high standard. There is no need to travel when looking for dinner as the restaurant quality is of the highest standard. We have the fortune to travel extensively around the world, and it is our true belief that you would be hard pressed to find a better resort to spend a few day... and take my tip... the golf golf course is first class.. so treat yourself to a round or two..

Room Tip: Treat yourself and book a spa room... the bed is outstanding

Excellent accomodation, reasonably priced & the most friendly staff! This place is exceptional and faults are hard to find. Down to the last detail, this place is fantastic! Would definately recommend this place to young couples that are after an unforgetable, romantic, 5-star getaway! We will be back :)

What an amazing place. The accommodation was 5 star +. The only negative was the poor service in the restaurant. Although there was plenty of staff, they just seemed to hide all night. Most of the night it was just my small group of 8 in the whole restaurant. Food was great when it finally arrived. We had to keep asking for our guests wine glasses to be refilled.
Conference facility, service and food was exceptional.

We stayed at Chateau Elan and it was just exceptional. Cannot fault anything. The General Manager (Joseph) was the nicest person we have met in a long time. The tourist advice from the staff was fantastic. Definately recommend Chateau Elan.

I had my wedding at the Chateau Elan in September, 2012, I couldn't have changed one detail to make it more perfect than what it was! Timothy Cooper, and his off-sider Brooke, were in contact with me constantly & made my wedding day better than I could have ever imagined!
Aaron & Keith let me change my accomodation for my wedding night 3 times without even looking the slightest bit annoyed, they were more then happy to help with anything during our entire stay! Louise at the French Cafe was amazing her cheese platters are out of this world!
Tim, Aaron, Keith & Louise were like friends our entire stay, they always looked happy to see us & recommended great things for us to see & do!
We are currently saving hard to stay there again for our one year wedding anniversary & definitely recommend the Chateau Elan for any occassion, or no occassion at all!
Alicia at The Salon is also the most amazing hairdresser & person! Definitely go there!

Room Tip: Rooms are all beautiful, but looking over the Golf Course is a treat!
