The Station House Hotel, owned and managed by the Slattery family for the last 40 years, has undergone a complete refurbishment over the last two years and has just unveiled its beautiful Carriage Suite. Once the locomotive workshop, back when The Station House was a working railway junction until 1963, it is now a beautiful and opulent banqueting hall, seating 80 – 180 guests comfortably. Working with the design team at Millimetre Design, Suzanne (Slattery) set out to create a wonderful garden-themed space in the Carriage Suite, whilst preserving the original granite stone walls, panelling and key features such as the bar which is located to one end of the room.
Exotic green veined marble sits next to brass hardware, providing a stunning feature to the bar counter and the bathroom vanities, whilst hand-made design features such as the Italian Murano chandelier in the foyer sets the tone for what lies ahead. Once you enter the banqueting hall, the garden theme is apparent, with ceilings adorned with floral and foliage in amongst an array of chandeliers, whilst each of the windows is dressed with fresh eucalyptus bringing a beautiful aroma as you enter.
Crisp white linen on the tables sets off the herringbone wood floor and the Louis XVI style chairs, designed and chosen for comfort as well as style. For larger numbers (160 or more), classic cream Chiavari chairs work equally well against the wood floor and the garden theme.
The Carriage Suite can also be set up for beautiful indoor ceremonies against a cream linen backdrop and romantic candle lanterns framing the aisle. For outdoor ceremonies, The Turntable, located in amongst the forest trees is a mystical setting for the most special of vows.
