21st Birthday - March 2015

On behalf of my husband and myself, I would like to thank you for all your assistance and hospitality with organising my son Jaidyn's 21st birthday party. We were very impressed with everything especially the customer service given to us there at Rydges. You and your team made us feel welcome and comfortable and we totally enjoyed our experience there. I look forward to returning there for a "get away" in the very near future and also to maybe host my daughter Brittany's 21st Birthday Party next year in October.

Once again thank you very much we really appreciate the effort you and your team went through to help make this night a special and memorable moment for us. I rate you guys full stars for everything.
