From Our Guests

Just wanted to pass on my thanks to yourself and the staff at the Transcontinental Hotel for your assistance in organisation and preparation of our event, and for the smooth running of the event on the night. Having had very little experience in organising something like this, I really appreciated your patience in answering my questions, explaining run sheets etc in the lead up to the event.  Similarly, I also owe a big thank you to Alex for assistance on the night of our event, as well as to all the staff who were working the event who could not have done more to ensure our event ran smoothly. Our event was a huge success, raising over $2,000 for our chosen charity (Headspace).

Meredith Hartigan

Just wanted to say thanks. The Xmas party was a great success and everyone enjoyed it immensely. Please pass on my thanks to Ash and the staff. They were wonderful. Have a merry Xmas and all the best for 2016.


Marina Mantini

Karl and I had such a wonderful time on the weekend. The event went off without a hitch. Ash was amazing, and so so helpful. The food was lovely, and the atmosphere was perfect. We truly had the greatest time.

Rhiannon Hutt

I Just wanted to drop a line to you and Ashley and say thanks for your efforts on Friday. It was a great evening with all your staff very accommodating. We will absolutely return and should you need anything additional from me, please don’t hesitate to contact me anytime.


Please thank everyone involved with Saturday nights party. Each year we seem to have bigger and better parties and this year was no exception!


I did want to say thank you for the efforts of yourself, Ashley and the other staff – everyone really enjoyed the party and the timing of events was perfect.


Our event last Friday night was a huge success and I couldn’t fault Shane and his team. Thank you again for your help to coordinate our EOFY party and I look forward to working with you in the near future. Please keep us in mind for any new up and coming venues, as we are always on the lookout. Have a great weekend.


Well what a night.  We had an absolute ball.  In the end we had over 80 guests coming from all over Australia, our biggest turn out in 8 years.  We benefitted greatly from reminiscing with old colleagues and I am sure (knowing Navy culture) the Transcontinental did as well with the bar takings.  Thanks heaps for organising the space for us.  We will keeping this location in mind for future events which do happen yearly around the same time.  Also a big thanks to the staff for attending to our thirsty needs and in particular the young lady with weird Halloween contact lenses who took some group photo’s for us, her name eludes me.  Please pass on my thanks to your team.

We just had our first meeting since the event and everyone was very happy overall. I really enjoy working with you and truly appreciate your dedication to your job.


I’ve been meaning to contact you to thank you for everything you and your team did to ensure our Trivia Night was a great success. We all had a really good time and people had so many complimentary things to say about the Trans (particularly the food – huge props to your kitchen team).

I just wanted to say thank you for all your help and hard work for our Christmas Party. The night was a big success!! Plenty of talk around the office of it being the best Christmas party so I’m pretty happy with that, Please pass on my thanks to Ash, Alex and the team for all their efforts. The service we received on the night was exceptional and they should be commended for their efforts!

Rebecca Dickson

Thanks for the awesome night everyone was really impressed with the hospitality of the Trans. Especially you and the events guy with the beard, (sorry I met 50 new people that weekend) Nothing was too much trouble for guys which is hard to find these days. I will be recommending you guys to anyone who is looking to host an event and you guys will be in mind for future events.
