'Orlando Country has consistently delivered a great conferencing experience for us here at FMG, its country setting on the edge of town and close to the airport is brilliant. The team at Orlando are hands on, family business owners with a very genuine commitment to both great service and good fun. In a nutshell it’s just a damn good set up and a real asset to the mighty Manawatu.'

'This is the first time Orbit has had a conference at Orlando and it was an amazing experience. The staff were very helpful and obliging, from the outset of setting the venue up right through the day they were always available, helpful and very respectful. The venue is amazing, and suited our event nicely. The extra activities like croquet, blindfolded golf cart challenge and the driving range provided a fun atmosphere for our team. As for the menu, this was absolutely stunning throughout the whole day. Thank you so much to all the Orlando team, we will be back’ .

'Orlando Country Club is my ‘go to’ venue that brings town and country, business and pleasure together in a magical atmosphere. I have hosted and attended a variety of memorable events in their rustic indoor and outdoor setting with magnificent rural views. Being a family run business you experience their passion for all they do and the staff have always excelled. They are so welcoming, accommodating in planning, with a fabulous choice of cuisine and innovative ways of presenting it. Whether it be a business lunch for 20, an awards dinner for 80, a business after 5pm for 100 or a family get together on a Sunday – you can be assured of genuine Kiwi hospitality in a fabulous rural setting’.

'On behalf of Tony and myself (Jen) we want to extend our greatest gratitude to yourself and your husband on the exceptional job you did for our daughter Toni-Faith, on one of the biggest days of her life, her wedding. There was not one thing that we could fault about your establishment, staff, and catering. The establishment itself is in a class of it’s own, the staff couldn’t have been more helpful and willing to please, no matter what the ask was. The food was on another level of classy and just so you know, we have dined at some very exclusive places around the world. Our daughter and her new husband Jay are so happy they went with the menu that was provided, they have no regrets. You run an amazing business and we can see why you are so successful and rightly so. You left no detail unturned with all that was provided. Tony, myself, the wedding party, family and friends have done nothing but rave about the day from start to finish. We are all still on cloud nine and we want to do it all over again, hahaha. Thank you, thank you, thank you, you’re the bomb. We will never forget this day and you played such an important part of it. I wish you nothing but love and light and know that we will continue to talk about your establishment for a long time to come’.
