Anniversary Celebrations in style

Held a 50th Wedding anniversary meal for my parents, using the Burlesque Room. Room was fantastic and the food served was excellent. Eliot was our point of contact, and he made planning the evening straightforward, and was extremely helpful with menu planning and food organisation. All the staff were friendly, polite, efficient, and professional. The whole evening was brilliant. We streamed our own music and used a large television to play videos and photos. Could not have asked for a better venue for the evening. I definitely recommend The Carlton Hotel and their team.
