Loved the venue, great layout for private meetings/conferences. Food was amazing, staff were very helpful and friendly. PERFECT
We chose this meeting venue not only because of the location but also the fact that we had some potential security issues. The venue manager Tanya was awesome in helping us coordinate over the meeting duration the attendees and also security. Nothing was too difficult and made my job so much easier. It’s a really nice venue and the food is surprisingly good (for this type of thing). We liked it so much, we have booked it again.

This is a great place for a conference and excellent staff
My experiences at Karsten’s has been fabulous. The staff are delightful and super helpful, with nothing being too much trouble. The venue itself is great – technology works well, the rooms are light and bright and it has a spacious “lounge” and break-out area, and the food and coffee facilities are great. Having facilitated at numerous venues in Perth city, this is one of my favourites and definitely beats hotel venues. I will definitely be recommending my clients consider Karstens.
Our course was very well catered. Delicious gluten free food for a coeliac and different options everyday.
Great facilities, service and food!

The BEST place for corporate meetings and events, excellent venue, excellent catering and excellent service – 10 out of 10 – highly recommend
I have been a trainer for 20yrars and worked at countless venues.Kartsens was one of my top experiences.The venue was clean, modern and spacious, as well as having a relaxed and welcoming energy. There is also lots of natural light.What made this venue stand out however, was the super superier customer service. The whole experience throughout the day was seamless and I was supported by the staff who always seemed one atep agead of me. They constantly checked in with me and nothing was too much trouble.Location is also very convenient with a parking garage (reasonably priced for the city – check early bird rates) and you are 2 mins walk from Circular Quay.
I recently attended a 2 day workshop training at Karstens Brisbane. It was my first time attending training at the venue and I must say I was impressed. From the moment I arrived I felt welcomed by Tanya and all staff. Thank you for such friendly and down to earth service.I enjoyed the extra strength coffee pods , delicious coconut yoghurts (thank you I am dairy -free!) and my favourite was the sliders.The space was really comfortable and I enjoyed using the common lounge area at lunch. I just wanted to thank all the Brisbane Karstens staff for their hospitality . I’ve been to a few Brisbane venues the past year and this has been the best, thank you.
Sonny is a legend. We’ve had a few workshops at Karstens this month and he’s gone over and above to accomodate us…including providing a stash of his own English Breakfast tea. It’s the small things. Thanks Sonny and the Karstens crew.
As a trainer, I loved the quality of the facilities, the lovely staff were attentive to all our requirements. The food provided at our breaks and lunch was lovely, and varied each day. Loved it, made my job more enjoyable. Thanks.
I attended a security development training conference here and I was extremely impressed with the venue, the food and the staff! It’s a very professional environment and really makes you feel the part.
Great Training facility. Good amenities, easy access, close to Train stations
I’ve completed a number of training sessions this year at Karstens Sydney, it’s a great location and in my experience the team are super-supportive and helpful.
Elmer, Operations Manager, and his team are excellent to work with and very accommodating – a great customer experience is a major focus for them and nothing is an issue as they are very committed to ensuring your training/conference day is successful. Karstens is a great venue in Sydney’s CBD – easily accessible by public transport and parking close by. There are a variety of different room sizes for use depending on your needs, facilities are available to enhance your presentations ie whiteboards, flip charts, projectors etc, tea and coffee facilities available and, if required, catering can be arranged and provided. If you’re looking for somewhere to run a training session, a conference or an event it would definitely be worthwhile checking out their website for more details and other interstate locations!
Tania and her team were amazing. As a presenter they made everything easy, big smiles, super organised. Wonderful. Thanks so much
Attended a Professional Development session today. I am so impressed by the facilities and the catering at Karstens. We were given morning tea, lunch, AND afternoon tea, along with tea and coffee etc. The food was absolutely delicious and very well thought through. I raved about the chia pudding and freshly baked warm pastries! The facilities were modern and clean with gorgeous interior design. Highly recommend!
Very nice people and very helpful
Great facility for conferences and meetings with a modern, professional feel to it. The location is excellent, too.
Excellent service provided.
Our function was perfect!
The facilities were modern and in excellent condition. They suited our meeting needs perfectly and the staff and room set up was very professional. I suggest that you specify any catering requests as our morning tea was not really touched by attendees – cheesecake was an odd choice for morning tea and in hindsight we should have requested a savoury item.
Great facilities, lunch room well stocked with coffee machines,tea options. ..snacks and lunch were plenty . They take care of vegetarian options as well.
Extremely professional – east set up for presenter – perfect timing for tea/meal breaks. Very impressed.
I would like to thank the staff Karstens Sydney venue, they were outstanding, service and professionalism at its best; they were there at my beck and call the entire time, five-star service !Congratulations on your brilliant Team!Timber Development Association
All great during our event, friendly staff
All great during our event.
Cornerstone Performance Management held a two day Knowledge Share conference for our people at Karstens Sydney at the end of July. Nothing was a problem, every last minute issue was fixable, the venue and their wonderful team were utterly professional and incredibly accommodating. We had two days of back to back sessions with lots of external presenters and feedback across the board from staff and guests was glowing. Thank you Bea and Lucy in Sydney, and Sara in Melbourne, for your hard work and fantastic support. If you are looking for a professional venue with world class staff I highly recommend Karstens, they are brilliant.
Great venue and great customer service.
Exceptional service, professional rooms and punctual catering
Booked the venue for a workshop last week. I have presented there before. The staff are always really helpful, the food is good and plentiful and the rooms are set up well. Plus for the CBD the low price is also a deciding factor. Very happy with all the above. One problem that I hope they attend to is the disabled bathroom facilities. I have presented there in a wheelchair and a participant this time was in a wheelchair. The only toilet is nowhere near the conference room and very difficult to access. For somewhere offering so many rooms they need to better cater for people with disabilities
Great facility. Very professional staff who provided our staff with everything needed.
The venues are of a good quality, the food is always substantial and the service from our Account Manager is second to none.
Great venue, lovely food and incredibly helpful staff. Shout out to Sonny for being so available and helpful.
Great for internal events, ie if you don’t need to impress anyone like clients. We were in adjoining rooms1202 or something like that. Very low tech. No plugs for lap tops at the tables, no lectern and when it arrived it didn’t have an integrated microphone, and the speaker’s computer would slide off so they had to leave it on the table next to them and bend over to read. No lapel microphones so the speakers had to hold a big microphone the whole time. It’s a tired old building but it’s been tarted up well enough. The toilet seats have deteriorated and smell like old plastic akin to BO. Staff were great, food was pretty good, nespresso machine is always a bonus! Chairs were decent for a 6 hour day. Great location. Really well lit, so you don’t feel like you’re in a time warp.
Great location and facilities are clean and modern. It lacked x factor in service but was good. Reason for 4 stars not 5 is lack of x factor and capsule coffee…
Great venue of meetings with your team. Central city location, good audio visual and food as well.
Really happy with the servicerooms are a little tired but functionalstaff are AMAZING!!!
Very well organised and professional. Also – beautiful break-out lounge area.
Very good service, food quality and room set up.
Very good venue
We held a technical conference here for 3 days earlier this month for approx 80 people, across 5 rooms plus a computer lab. The venue was great and the staff were awesome, they were SO helpful and incredibly quick to assist with all our requirementsOnly small problem was that we had intermittent issues with the public wifi
Nice facilities. Have done a lot of training here and the staff are always very friendly
