Hosted a cozy dinner here in the Robinson Room with some friends. The room itself was perfect for the group size of 12, also having use of the lounge attached was lovely to have more space for the event. The room was decorated so lovely thanks to the event coordinator who went above and beyond. The food itself was amazing, great flavour, temperature and portion size. The Cocktails and drinks were amazing. Overall I highly recommend the Gladstone House for any function, I believe you will be well taken care of.

We had our wedding here (approx 90 people). The communication with our hotel contact (Giannina) was extremely professional and courteous. We felt well taken care of. The food is delicious, the decor and vibe is beautiful, and the rooms are incredible. The bar and wait staff during our wedding were top notch and helped make the event even better for our guests. I would love to visit and stay in the hotel just to be able to take in more of the art and amenities. Our breakfast the next day was truly delicious. We love the Gladstone and will always recommend it to people visiting the city.
