Gantleys is a fabulous venue for conference or Incentive dinners, whether informal get togethers or gala evenings.
We have been at Gantleys since 1993 and have gained great experience in hosting groups from many companies and organisations from throughout New Zealand and internationally. They have included Air New Zealand, American Express, Game Industry Board, Department of Internal Affairs, Law Society, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Microsoft, all from New Zealand. And from overseas, WKRN-TV USA, Mercedes Benz Hong Kong, Toyota USA, BMW South Africa, Renault Spain, Nissan USA and Australia, Range Rover Australia, Konica USA - to name just a few.
These have ranged from small VIP groups of 10 people up to groups of 100; some just for dinner, and many for pre-dinner drinks in our beautiful garden and dancing after dinner.
We know how important conferences are to the successful networking within organisations and we offer our experience and personal service to ensure that any evening at Gantleys is an occasion to remember.
GANTLEY's is a unique restaurant with an enviable reputation for consistently having the finest in food and service, as well as the most awarded wine list in the country.
The ambiance created by our beautiful historic stone building (built in 1863 during the goldrush) is cosy and romantic yet sophisticated, providing a distinctive theme of its own. It is the perfect venue for incentive groups and gala dinners. Gantley's has
exposed stone interior and exterior walls, soft lighting, a huge fireplace in the dining room, and an attractive bar area. We have 2 acres of landscaped gardens with several areas where guests can enjoy pre dinner or after dinner drinks or simply wander about.
The decor is elegant, with fully upholstered chairs in forest green suede-like fabric. Great care was taken to ensure that all furnishings and fittings reflected the era in which the building originated, but with a contemporary feel of the fabrics and wrought iron work, which includes the wall light fittings. Our tables are set with starched white tablecloths and napkins, candles, and beautiful crystal wine glasses.
Gantley's is located just 7 kilometres from the centre of Queenstown (approx 10 minutes drive).
Based on the best and freshest of New Zealand produce, prepared with passion and flair in the style of New Zealand Fine Dining, Gantley's cuisine has proven to be the gastronomic highlight for many conference and incentive groups visiting Queenstown.
