Every function at the Garden State Hotel is a unique blend of colour, variety, and style. As we have multiple function rooms and spaces to choose from, we’re able to cater for all your needs.

If you have a large party or launch event to plan and organise, why not hire all of our event spaces? When combined, these areas work together to create a fabulous indoor/outdoor function room with different styles of décor for guests to explore and enjoy. All you need to worry about is who to invite.
