Testimonials for our Wellington Conference Venue

On behalf of the National body and the NZ members of Powertalk NZ, I wish, to thank you for a wonderful weekend. I cannot thank you enough Gina, for your professional and yet relaxed manner, in which you made everything easy for the members to have an excellent conference. I commend your staff and the hotel staff for the helpful way they conducted all the transitions and members requests… nothing was a bother. 

Please give our compliments to the chef and kitchen staff, as all members said how the meals and teas were delicious. Thank you, Gina, for all your attention to the detail that made my job as the coordinator a breeze. As an organisation we have been coming to the Mercure Abel Tasman for over 10 years, but the members all commented on the fact that this year was simply the best.

Please give our thanks to your Manager, Kevin, for his warm and welcoming manner and excellent staff .

"We found the venue a welcoming and centrally located spot for our workshop, and we were impressed with the attention to detail that you both had in arranging the projector, speaker, and setup for us.Lakmal was terrific, and we really appreciated his professionalism and his willingness to assist throughout the weekend. The tea and coffee/water were always replenished and we had all our questions answered. We also appreciated the accommodation with using the extra space in the unoccupied neighbouring room. We’ll definitely pass your name on to other colleagues needing a venue and will be in touch for future presentations."

"I want to thank you for everything that you and your staff did to help make our workshop run so smoothly last week.Everyone was very happy with the venue, catering and rooms.I particularly would like to thank you for handling our last minute requests so professionally."

Lisa Shelley - Kiwi Rail

"I just wanted to write a quick note to thank you and your team for great hospitality over the last couple of weeks. From the moment we arrived after being displaced from our own building we were extremely well looked after and our every need was catered for. The most memorable thing however was the attitude of your staff which was second to none and even after the second earthquakes their focus was the safety of ourselves and the other guests. We have worked with very many hotels and hospitality teams across NZ and I have to say that your team is the best. Very well done on having such a great team."

"This is the first time we have used the hotel and it wont be the last. We hope other hotels are a pleasure to work with like the Abel Tasman. Maybe with experience we will know, but for our first time event, this hotel has been amazing. Our conference was a huge success, mainly because of your professional and warm services. This hotel employs amazing people that have helped our delegates feel like they were at another home away from home. The PCS Board would like to express their personal gratitude and respect for EVERYTHING you have done for our conference. You and your staff really have gone the extra mile and we thank you!!"

Pregnancy Counseling Services Convention

"I am writing to thank you and your staff for the excellent service you gave us last night. I won’t name any of them but they were all very cheerful, pleasant and helpful and joined in and were interested in the proceedings. This makes such a difference. When you are running a function like last night this can make all the difference between a good evening and an excellent evening. I also have to say that their interaction with the people with disability was inclusive and respectful. I was there over breakfast time this morning and some of the same staff were as cheerful as the night before! Well done."
