Venue Review: Embassy Hill
The Forum Company is South Africa’s leading events and conferencing companies. They offer some of the most iconic venues and the exquisite Embassy Hill is the new addition to the Forum Company.
This is an upmarket five star rated venue so it is best suited for five star events for blue chip companies as well as local and international weddings and private functions. Expansive lawns make this venue suitable for both indoor and outdoor events.
The cost to hire this venue is R 50,000.00 to R 75,000.00 hire per day, which includes four bedrooms and five venues (This depends on the day and season). The main Conservatory can take 150 guests seated. There are alternate rates for day conferences.
There are 100 open parking bays on the property. The venue has a 3 Phase and backup generator and only makes use of and allows LED lighting both inside and out.
All the rooms, bar and two small conference rooms have gas fire places so it is ideal for winter events. The kitchen facilities have brand new equipment; however, everything is done in-house and at an additional cost. * The venue does not allow external caterers.
There are plenty of bathrooms and they are beautifully decorated. The property is completely secure and private with 24 hour security. *Standard cleaning is included in the venue hire.
There are no difficulties with this venue. Equipment is easy to load in and everything is on one floor, however, the music levels need to be turned down to ambient levels at 24h00.
The Fun Stuff…
We love the 5 star qualities and service provided at the Embassy Hill. Their food is fresh, local and sourced from sustainable suppliers.
The Embassy Hill is a historic Cape Town home that has been modernised to reflect the forum companies award winning style. Built by the Hamilton Russel family and later owned by the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The property was the home to the Dutch Ambassador for many years. Set atop a hill the property boasts 360 degree views of the Historic Constantia Wine Valley. Our favourite event we held at this venue so far has been Wisdom Forum for Old Mutual Corporate. We were the second events company to host an event here and the venue really complimented the overall theme beautifully.
