Hi Diane,

Just a short note to express our appreciation for everything you did to make my wife’s 60th birthday such a memorable experience.

The food was great, the weather played along and the staff was friendly and went out of their way to make sure everything went well.

My wife had no idea that we were having lunch on board so she was blown away when she saw the table decorated with personalised birthday cards to crown it all.

It was truly such a memorable experience which we will treasure forever.

Thank you once again for a perfect day.

Regards,

Andre

Good morning Rosemary,

Oh my, where do I even begin?

You know, I've been to many places before, locally and abroad, and what I've experienced this past weekend at Stonehaven is unmatched...trust me...

I'll point out a few dimensions that stood out for me;

  1. Level of Professionalism - You and your staff are always prompt and responds to emails and calls like lightning...
  2. Care - this is felt throughout...whether one one is engaging a cleaner or a waiter or any of the staff there, everyone is prepared to help.
  3. The venue is obviously a centrepiece...

I'm not sure how you train your staff but whatever you doing, please keep it up!!!

So in short, you are not in this business by mistake and we wish you all the success.

Kindest regards

Jacky Sechemane

Our 15th wedding anniversary on valentines day

Dear Rosemary,

After a wonderful holiday we spent in South Africa the everyday life in our region of the world (Germany) had us back more quickly than we thought. That is the reason that we can just right the email now to you.  Mike Brucher wrote already via What´s App but we would like to take the opportunity to let you know personally how we feel.

We would really like to thank you for the wonderful evening we could experience in your beautiful place Stonehaven. The table, dinner and the drinks were excellent and we will never forget all the very nice and cordial preparations we found on and around our table. It was by far an anniversary which we will ever remember, nevertheless due to the entertainment of Mike J who you obviously know also very well.

It will be a pleasure to recommend Stonehaven to all South Africa tourists we are meeting in our friendship circle. We have a saying here in Germany that you always meet twice. So you never know.

Have a great time and all the best for the little paradise- island you designed and built with Stonehaven.

Yours sincerely

Stefanie and Roger Lang

Good afternoon,

I trust you are well.

We held our yearly kick of function at Stone Haven on the 17th January 2018.  This is way over due, but better late than never!

We had some issues where what we discussed was not implemented on the day. I would like to compliment Solanche Meiring for the awesome service she gave us. She really went our of her way to ensure all was sorted with the least effort, and without anyone noticing the problems. Solanche was not responsible for the original arrangements, however she jumped in and sorted all the problems in a jiffy! 😊

She dealt with all our request timeously  and with a smile on her face. She was running up and down between our day venue and The spirit of Jen, where our awards evening took place,

The tables where done to perfection and all looked really Great both day and night,

One of our ladies needed hair pins for her hair, and Solanche saved the day by bring her some pins. Now that to me is going above and beyond to keep clients happy!!

Well done Solanche Meiring, keep up the great work you do for your clients, it was an absolute pleasure having you assist us. You are Awesome!!

Thank You & Kind Regards

Service at Stonehaven

Dear Sir/Madam

Late last week I made a telephone booking with a young lady at Stonehaven, I asked for a table for five for lunch on Saturday and requested whether she could possibly arrange a table close to the water.  I requested this, as we had experienced this a while ago and thoroughly enjoyed it.  She said she’d see what she could do.

We arrived on time on Saturday to find a table, right next to the water, not only reserved but with two A5 pamphlets on welcoming us by name. WOW !  Then we enjoyed a really good lunch, some of your craft beer and excellent service.  Our waiter was Ray and he was every bit as efficient as Deon who served us last time.

Our thanks and compliments to all the staff at Stonehaven, for the great service and food

Regards

Dave McKenzie

Hi

It's Divio from BMWFanatics Car Club

Just expressing our gratitude for hosting us today. Really exceeded our expectations, the venue and the catering, hope its worth your while hosting us.

We didn't realize that you were going to prep a buffet breakfast for us, bad planning on my part I guess! 🙂

But all the peeps that had it really enjoyed it, as well as those who ordered off the menu. Everything was perfect, the setting the location, the welcome branding, everything.

Thank you so much!

Look forward to coming to Stonehaven again,

Thanks

Divio

Thank you

Hi Rosemary,

Once again, thank you on behalf of the entire PCO Alliance Network, for your huge contribution towards having made the VIP Networking Cruise such a success again this year.

Stonehaven is like a piece of paradise.  The roses, the gardens, the setting – I couldn’t have chosen a better venue to host our function all these years.  I have never been disappointed and nor have our guests who are wowed from the moment they arrive.

I am so appreciative of all the extras which you provide on the day and, as for your unbelievable creativity with regard to the decor and ideas based around our theme, you go way over and above.  The boat looked sensational and the waitresses, dressed in theme, were a great idea of yours.

Thank you for the wonderful birthday cake for Wayne as well as your card.  He felt like a king on the day.

The spread looked fantastic and most enticing but I really wasn’t mad about the food and know that I wasn’t the only one.  I think that some of the eats were too large or messy to eat as finger-fork meals and there was too much fried food.  We also felt that there was so much waste, which really bothers us greatly as we are always supporting charities who could desperately do with extra food.  Perhaps we should go back to the more wholesome, home-cooked meals for next year INCLUDING that delicious, delicious Broccoli salad.

All your staff (most of them I now regard as my pals) were friendly, helpful, polite and a credit to Stonehaven.  You certainly run an excellent business and I hope it continues to grow from strength to strength.

To finally indicate how delighted I, the EXCO members, all our members as well as our VIP’s are to enjoy this day out on Spirit-of-Jen, I would like to book our event for next year if you’ll have us.  The date would be Friday 19th October.  If you are available, I will  pay a small deposit immediately to secure it.

In ending, we are waiting to receive the final bill so we can settle with you.

Best regards

Jacqueline

Chad's 30th Birthday

Sorry I have taken so long to give you feedback. I was really really happy about what was done on my son’s birthday. Everything was absolutely perfect, from the setting to the photos along the route to the boat.

Right from the time of leaving home Chad had no clue as to what I had planned for him.   When we got under way he thought we were on our way to Hartebeestpoort Dam. Only when he saw a sign saying Vaal did he get excited as he has never been to the Vaal.

When we walked to the office and he say the welcome message and his photo he was really surprised, to say nothing of the rest of the photos on route to the boat. When he boarded the boat he was absolutely blown away by the set up, got tears in his eyes and just hugged me.   It was all so very worth it to get that reaction from him, and all thanks to you and the rest of the crew at Stonehaven.

Coffee and Anna were great hosts and we lacked for nothing with them looking after us.Chad’s friends really had a great time as well – they all knew what I had planned and Chad could not believe that they were all in on it and never gave anything  away to him.

Well this is a long winded e-mail, but I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated what you all did and that everything went down well.

My son said that he would definitely, in the near future, plan for another trip out to Stonehaven.

Thank you ever so much once again.

Yvonne
