A Piece of Paradise in the middle of the City.
by Louw Mulder
Sometimes, you are fortunate enough to discover something special, like a peaceful, tranquil little gem, in the middle of the buzzing city. This time, the luck was on my side, when I got to discover The Garden Venue Boutique Hotel in Northriding. A little paradise, where the sounds and nature-noises muffle the man-made blares of the city, to make you realise how lucky we are to be in South-Africa.
The Garden Venue is a function and event location set in beautifully landscaped gardens, in the Northriding Smallholdings, very close to the Northgate Dome. Spread across 3 hectares of gardens, you can enjoy a strong country feel with multiple reception sites, conference facilities, meeting and ceremony rooms, all which offer unique event spaces, accommodating guest numbers from 12 to 300 per event.
Offering freedom of choice, these internal and external spaces are ideal for weddings, conferences, seminars, team building programs and birthday parties including year-end functions and bridal showers and baby showers. Whether you choose the Olive Tree Hide nestled under a cluster of ancient Olive trees, the Koi Pond Pavilion or our Elephant Room, we are persuaded we have the dream space for you. The best is, you forget very quickly that you are only a few kilometres away from the hustle of the city…
