Amazing Hunter Valley Conference Venue

I held our annual staff conference at Cypress Lakes for a team of 50. Stunning service, from the accommodation to the food and the conference facilities provided. This was the first time that I didnt have even 1 staff complaint or gripe (& I have a long history in events!) Great location, great service, great food - I cant recommend enough. Also, the AV team they use are flawless, exactly what you need when running a big 2 day event!
