Thank you to the team at LaValla for looking after us so well on Tuesday.  We had another fantastic experience at LaValla.  The food was superb as always.  I look forward to seeing you and the team again soon.

Hugest of thanks to your team for what sounds like a hugely successful stay at LaValla for The Lion Foundation Exec team.

Everyone loved the setting, your people, the accommodation and most especially the food – it was apparently outstanding.
We are very grateful for all that you did, and will be back!

​Your staff were outstanding. They were quietly attentive and sensitive to every need. Alternations and amendments to the programme and timetable were accommodated with a smile ... The meals, morning and afternoon teas were superb. Dietary requirements were personally supervised by the Chef and attended to with sensitivity. The venue and gardens were a wonderful environment for our function and were commented favourably on by members and partners attending.... the quality of the service and the outstanding catering were all enjoyed.  Please accept our thanks and appreciation for LaValla's part in making the 30th Anniversary Conference the success it clearly was.

Max Barclay (NZ Vintage Tool Collectors Club Conference, November 2017)

My team stayed here for 2 nights and what an amazing venue and experience. We were treated to some great food from an outstanding chef that was tailored from our product range, the attention to detail from planning to execution was fantastic. I would highly recommend using LaValla for a team meeting or team building retreat. All the feedback from the team was that it was the best food they had ever had at a meeting! Thanks to the team at LaValla.

Thank you so much for the incredible retreat we had last week at LaValla Estate.  They say the true meaning of experience is something that leaves an impression and you and your team have most certainly done that to ours!  Your location is something special and you most certainly assisted us to make the most of it, with dining outdoors an absolute highlight.  Your facility offering allowed us to create an environment that was conducive to learning and building our team, they came away refreshed and focused. The location was great, the food was amazing and the service could not be faulted.  There are few places that can say nothing is a hassle however you really made us feel that way, everyone is talking about when we go back!  We cannot recommend you highly enough there were so many small touches that really made it a special retreat, the accommodation both on and off-site was great and service was consistent across both.
