I write to offer my warmest congratulations on helping deliver a wonderful Annual PGC Convocation, yesterday. Thank you.
The venue is so very popular and the meal was absolutely 1st class. All the Team could not have been more accommodating and I would ask that you please thank everyone on my behalf. The timings and 2 courses seem to have gone down very well and our only real concern is that we were well over-subscribed and had to close our bookings, turning so many of our Companions away but there is little you can personally do about that.
Well done and I really am most grateful,
D. Gerald Rowbottom
ME Grand Superintendent, Provincial Grand Chapter of South Wales
“Thank you from the Mark Province of South Wales for all the help that you and your entire team gave us yesterday to ensure that our meeting was an outstanding success. I have received many emails of congratulations from visiting Executives and brethren of the Province, for the way the meeting was arranged and for the quality of the food supplied by your catering team.
If you have any particular comments and ideas that would help to improve future meetings, please pass them on to me.”

“Just to let you know yesterday’s consecration went very well at CMH, and the Duke of Connaught Temple looked especially impressive with a large number of Knights Templar in attendance (including a couple of Brother Knights from Scotland with their distinctive regalia).
Thanks for all the preparation work, and the meal was very enjoyable as well.”

“The children’s party was well organised and the kids (and the bigger kids too) thoroughly enjoyed the event and the festive feast. Well done!”

“I would like to thank both Hannah and Kim, we have had nothing but good feedback with regards to the lovely food and beautiful venue.
I really cannot thank you enough for how beautiful everything looked it was spot on, the atmosphere was fabulous, thanks again for everything Hannah you were a gem.”

“What a great place! We held our wedding reception here and the Masonic hall couldn’t have been a better venue – great location and plenty of history. Not only did the team make sure the day went without a hitch but they all went the extra mile to make sure everything was done to our liking. The whole team make you feel so special and that nothing is too much so a huge thanks to them all. An extra thank you must go to Hannah – throughout the whole 18 months of planning, Hannah has been great! No question too silly and no detail spared, she really did make the day extra special.
I would completely recommend the Masonic hall for all parties and events, great location, great value, awesome food and a cheap bar! What more could you want?!
Once again thank you so much for all you did to help make our day so special, everyone had a great time.”
“We can highly recommend the Cardiff Masonic Hall, Hannah, and all her staff. From the start they worked with us to accommodate our unconventional circumstances. But not only that, they also went to great lengths to ensure that everything felt personal and dedicated to us. In fact, it is this personalisation that makes Cardiff Masonic Hall such an incredible place. Hannah and her team worked with us to create something that fitted our budget, giving us a variety of options and never pressuring us to take something we felt uncomfortable with.
In sum, from the moment we first made contact with Hannah, through to leaving the day after our blessing, everything was easy and hassle free. The team certainly did all they could to make our day as incredible as it could be. Honestly, we cannot recommend this place to you highly enough.”

“It is a completely different atmosphere there ………..

“I write on behalf of the Principals and Companions of the Cwm Rhondda Chapter, to express our grateful thanks to Cardiff Masonic Hall, and in particular to you and all the staff who worked so hard in providing such a memorable evening.
The layout and attention to detail at the Festive Board was par excellence, as was the meal.
Please thank the chef, and the dining staff, under the leadership of Kim and Hannah.
It was an occasion that will remain in our minds for years to come.
Well done all.

“Iev / Kim,
I know I said it to you both yesterday, but I just wanted to put it on record. Thank you both so much for the way you looked after us yesterday. It was probably one of the best Spring Lunches we have had. As one of our very senior members put it…”Great food, great service, great company, great atmosphere…what more could you ask for?”
I received a number of other comments in a similar vein and I just thought you should know. Thanks again.
All the best,
Tennant Spring Launch
Please can I congratulate you on the excellent way you managed the Installation of out new Most Excellent Grand Superintendent.
The day went with no hiccups which is a credit to you and your team for the way that you had planned for the event.
Please convey my thoughts to Kim and to the rest of the hospitality staff. Well done.”
“A very short note to thank you most sincerely for all that you did to support our White Table event last night. It was a first class evening and your efforts in coordinating such a seamless and well executed event was highly praised by all. Thank you.
The whole building looked fantastic and it was a privilege to host so many guests at CMH who all commented on the rejuvenated and classy facade all the team have worked (and continue to work) so hard to achieve. The food was brilliant- would you please pass on our thanks to the Chef for accommodating so many awkward requests at very short notice.
I have taken lots of pictures and started to share them on Twitter- I’m biased but I really think they show the building off very well. I will certainly be recommending the building to other Lodges for their Ladies’ Festivals and events- it really did our Province proud! A number of our Past Masters and guests have asked us to organise another event before the end of the year- such was their delight at the wonderful occasion you helped to facilitate.”

“Dear Kevin, Hannah and colleagues
Thanks very much indeed for having us at the Masonic Hall – and for the extra trouble you all took along the way!
We are really pleased to have performed two of our second-year plays in your premises.”

“Dear Kevin & Hannah
Just a short note to say thanks so much for organising matters at CMH today. It was exactly what was needed and a perfect venue for the purpose. Food and refreshments were excellent too.
Thanks so much.”

“Good morning Kevin,
I just wanted to drop you and all the staff at Cardiff Masonic Hall a quick email to thank you most sincerely for what was an excellent afternoon at the MCF Community awards.
It was most pleasing to receive the high level of service as a consumer of CMH and as a board member to be very proud of the hard work being shown by all staff concerned. This was certainly noticed by all in attendance.
Kind regards Rob”
Just a quick note to thank you for arranging such an enjoyable kids Christmas party at Cardiff Masonic Hall last Sunday.
My business partner attended with his daughter as well as his baby son – and they both had a terrific time.
The food, entertainment, and Father Christmas were as excellent as the welcome was warm.
Lyanna stated that “it was the best party I’ve ever been to” – so I think that was praise indeed.
Thank you, James”

“We wanted to write to tell you that Hannah and Kim did a fantastic job making our wedding on Saturday 31 September a wonderful event. We want to say thank you for all their hard work and the hard work of the staff at the Hall on the day.
All of our guests had a great time. They loved the food (the beef wellington in particular got rave reviews!), they thought the venue was gorgeous and the service was great. My dad – who has very high standards – was really impressed and said that the venue was excellent.
Ben and I really appreciate all Hannah and Kim’s guidance and support in the run-up to the day. They were both practical, friendly and thorough. They thought about everything so that the day went off without a hitch, and were a pleasure to work with!
We would recommend the Hall as an event venue to anyone looking for somewhere in Cardiff.”
Ben Thomas and Lizzy Hawkins
“I would like to express my thanks for the assistance of all of your staff, to make our dance on the 16th be such a success, your team have certainly done you proud.”

“Our wedding at Cardiff Masonic Hall.
We had the most fantastic day and so much of what made it all work so well was the hard work and dedication of the staff of the Masonic Hall. From the start of the process in October 2016 every step was thoroughly planned, every detail scrutinised and with a willingness to be adaptive to the needs we both had.
The food was fantastic and very reasonably priced per head. The kitchen staff also proved very flexible when it came to catering to the variety of different dietary requirements for the guests. We’d highly recommend the Roast beef to anyone who’s choosing a meal for their wedding. The catering staff as well were also very professional and made the dining experience run very smoothly.
All in all, we had the best day we could have had and would once again like to extend our thanks to Hannah, Kim, and everyone else who helped made the day possible.”
