" We had our wedding at DuntryLeague on the 13th August 2016. I cannot speak highly enough about the staff and the venue. We arrived on the Friday and were instantly welcomed by Kristen and were made to feel right at home. Robert and the bar staff were fantastic in handling our large group. The locals made us feel special as well. A huge big thank you to Kristen, Robert , chef and every single staff member at DuntryLeague. You are amazing people and I would recommend this place to everyone looking for a wedding venue in Orange or just a place to have dinner. Thank you again"

Heath and Kelly, August 2016

 

"Thank you so much for having us and all the organising that you did for our special day. Our day was perfect and we had  so much fun everything just flowed and was so enjoyable and relaxing!

 We cant thankyou enough Katherine for all that you did to make our day as special as it was.

And a great big thank you to Kellie as well! she was amazing on Saturday, we will definitely be recommending you and Duntryleague to any of our friends and family with events/ weddings in the future." - Emily, March 2016

 

"My first stay here and important you know it's part of the golf course and attached to a small club. The building itself is an old manor house that has old world charm and magnificent to look at. The view from my room looked over the golf course and simply sensational. Yes the floorboards do creek and groan when walking on them although this simply adds to the charm. Room clean and simple with large windows you can open. The room also has a/c if needed. Continental breakfast part of the room cost with a cooked Meal at an added cost. This place won't be for everybody but I found it great and if you are a golfer, it's an absolute must."
Greg- February 2016

 

"I've stayed in many motels in Orange and there was nothing wrong with them. The difference with Duntryleague Guesthouse is character and setting. The rooms are in a Victorian manor home with sweeping views over the golf course, Don't expect ultra modern rooms however they are comfortable and in keeping with the period home. Yes the floors creak but your bones would creak too at 140 years old, all part of the charm.Breakfast included, the clubhouse restaurant for dinner, a morning or evening walk around the golf course, drinks on the terrace. Once you arrive there's no need to go anywhere. Definitely recommend and will bring my husband next time to play golf."

"We had a simply beautiful stay at Duntryleague. Loved everything from the glorious step back in time accommodation to the contemporary convenience of the golf club dining room attached.  And the fact that you serve local wines - impressive. Sitting on the deck with a glass of Printhie Riesling and Angullong Shiraz before dinner - perfect. Dinner was excellent and staff warm and friendly. We have already told many friends."
Robert & Jan - January 2016

"The accommodation was excellent, food and service wonderful and of course the golf just brilliant on a beautiful and challenging course with plenty of hidden treasures (like playing from under magnificent and varied old trees). Recommended for any golfers bucket list as a great 2-3 day stay. Rooms are very old but comfortable."  John - Janurary 2016 

"I would like to say what a beautiful club & motel with so much history you guys have & the golf course well no words can describe it amazing. Cannot wait for my next stay"

"A truly wonderful country golfing and leisure weekend experience. 16 adult males from Sydney stayed at Duntryleague for the 2 night golfing weekend package, and ALL 16 of us, - and there are some very hard to please customers among us, - were very impressed by the whole experience. The golf course was superb, excellently maintained, and the diverse species of truly wonderful mature trees across the whole course is the equal to anything anywhere in Australia. Margaret Dalton Lodge functioned well as a gathering space for the whole team, nicely private from the main building. Everyone was charmed by the lovely Heritage rooms, - if you want 5 star sterile surroundings, stay in a busy Sydney hotel, - Duntryleague Mansion is old-worldly charm at its best. The clubhouse functioned well, - excellent choice of very good meals at good prices, prompt friendly service and good bar staff. Admin from start to end was flawless due to very efficient office staff. Absolutely nothing to winge about."
Simon - October 2015


It was indeed a very happy function last night that NSW Farmers Orange District Council members enjoyed at Duntryleague. On behalf of all the attendees last night, may I thank you for all the massive help you have given in the organisation of the function. As usual your support, expertise and helpful advice has been wonderful and something that we do so appreciate Katherine. Kellie was just wonderful; Charlie and all the team helping last night were smiling, friendly and great ambassadors for the always efficient Duntryleague staff members.  Please give our thanks to them all. And the food, everyone was commenting on how delicious it was.   Personally I had the opportunity to try one of your famous curries – wow!  The Nepalese Chicken was just amazing.   Can’t wait to come back on a Wednesday for another curry.  Please thank your Chefs and their kitchen staff for sharing their talents with us by preparing such delicious and well presented meals.

"Thank You Katherine and all the staff at Duntryleague for giving us such a wonderful Wedding Day at Duntryleague. We could not of asked for a better experience!
After considering several Sydney venues we decided to head past the Blue Mountains and have a country wedding - it was the best decision we could of made!

Duntryleague is the perfect back-drop for a wedding - the charming house and stunning grounds made for perfect photos. On top of that, the whole experience of staying the weekend there relieved a lot of the stress of the Big Day!

We got in on the Friday and the staff helped accommodate us setting up late that night - with a few nice wines to ease the work!
The next morning it was all systems go - the hair & make-up ladies arrived and the mansion rooms were perfect for us ladies to make ourselves beautiful, or stretch out on the big beds and lounges  and enjoy the morning tea and champers laid on by the staff.

When we returned for the drinks reception  everyone was out enjoying the sun-set on the various verandahs or strolling the grounds. 
The staff kept to our run-sheet and everything ran so smoothly - the local wines were fantastic, the food was non-pretentious, good, tasty fare!

The drinks flowed and the guests were enjoying the lit-up grounds at night ( if we had a Sydney beach wedding the view we paid for would not be visible by now!)
What I appreciated most though was how lovely the staff were to my parents who had come all the way from Ireland and were a little over-whelmed - the folks at Duntryleague could not have been warmer and more hospitable.

Thank You again Katherine and Staff - Duntryleague has a special place in our hearts and we will get back for an anniversary!"

"Thank-you so much for all of your help over the past 6 months Katherine, you have alway's been so prompt with all of my requests and just so lovely.. so thank-you. I was so so happy with how the reception and ceremony looked, it was exactly what I had imagined, so happy.  Guests used the outdoor area as well so it really did feel like one giant dancefloor like we hoped. The reception ran so smoothly, I have nothing but positive feedback for the team.  My Uncle told me he was very impressed with the staff "they were just so polite".  My sister-in law also told me that one waitress kept on coming up to her with the gluten free options, so lovely, you cannot beat personal service like that.  So thank-you and please pass on my thanks.  They kept on coming up to me as well which was so good, I would have forgotten to eat otherwise in all of the excitement.  Everything was just PERFECT.  So thank-you again Katherine, we are so happy with our experience and I would recommend yourself and Duntryleague as a wedding function centre to anyone."

"Mr John Cook, Board of Directors and the General Manager of Duntryleague Golf Club - Last week myself, my wife, our families and friends of both the Bride and Groom, attended a wedding on the grounds of Duntryleague Golf Club. WIth our many years involved in the hospitality industry unfortunately you seem to get negative happenings on occasions. The reason for this correspondence is completely the opposite. Firstly, in lead up to the wedding we met with the Functions Manager, Katherine, a number of times. Her professionalism and her co-operation to respond and react positively to every request we made was very much appreciated. She is a great asset to your club. Secondly, our barperson Peter, although under pressure at the start, showed maturity beyond his years in the service of the guests. He was under the pump on some occasions and knew most of the younger guests at the reception which would have made it hard for him, but his work was first class. Finally to all the other kitchen and bar staff, a big thank you. The comments we received since the wedding regarding the friendliness and efficient service of the staff have been positive and glowing. A number of the comments were made from visitors to the city and people involved in the service and hospitality industry. The Bride and Groom in particular advised that the staff could not do enough for them during the night. We will definitely be recommending the Duntryleague Golf Club to anyone who asks as a function centre. Please accept and pass on our congratulations and thanks to all involved who made it one night to remember." - January 2014
