"Stayed here with family, and even though they don't have family rooms, they went out of their way to provide arrangements to cater for us. Lovely manager, couldn't be more helpful. Lovely motel rooms. Great stay."

"If your haven't stayed here before, you must! This was my second time and it didn't fail me like others I have stayed at. The owner went out of her way to make our stay great, even supplying us with breakfast for the next morning as the Restaurant was closed for one day over the holidays. Upon leaving I was gifted with some lovely biscuits for my birthday which came as a total surprise. Keep up the great work! Will be back for round 3! I recommend eating at Sylvia's Restaurant."

"Wow, words won't do this justice. Thanks to Valmae, chefs Paul, Mikayl and David, as well as Kerri and all the floor staff for one of the most memorable evenings I've had in quite a while. The beautiful Lane wines that the chefs matched to perfection for a superb Lovers of Good Food and Wine Dinner degustation last night were an added bonus. Each course was unique with such distinctive flavours. It was wonderful lead in to Valentine's Day. Our motel room was very quiet and clean with a very comfortable bed, which rounded our evening off perfectly."

"Sylvia's Restuarant & Wine Bar at the Shangri-La Gardens Motel in Wynnum was brilliant. A secret jewel in the bayside's crown. If you haven't been there for a meal, do try it out. Paul, the chef, was absolutely brilliant. and the service from Mel and crew was second to none. We'll be back!"

"Had the pleasure of a spectacular Degustation dinner at Sylvia's Restaurant & Wine Bar last night. All praise to the head chef, Paul Field, as each little dish was a masterpiece. My particular favourite was the Blue Cheese Brulee-astonishing flavours and beautifully presented. The a-la-carte menu also looked impressive so we'll have to go back to try it. Great staff, absolutely beautiful surroundings, good wine bar, heaps of free parking in the grounds. Good value for money!"

"Berett & I had such an amazing (wedding) day, all the staff at Shangri-La Gardens were exceptional. The food was delicious and we have received many compliments on behalf of the Chefs and all staff. A big thank you to Kerri, the Functions Manager, who was very helpful in the planning & lead up. Kerri provided us with great service from the moment we met her & her warm, bubbly personality coupled with her patience & willingness to assist us with alterations to the packages offered was one of the reasons we selected this venue. I would not hesitate in recommending Shangri-La Gardens to other brides."
"My husband and I were married at Shangri-La Gardens in April 2014. We are delighted to say we had a perfect wedding day. The professionalism and experience of the staff made the whole process easy and stress-free (as stress-free as planning a wedding can be, anyway!) They handled everything from the sound system for the music, to the table and chair decorations, to the flowers, etc. The hotel accommodation is top-notch - the bridal suite has its own access to reception and the carpark so it was a great space to get ready in the morning with relatives, hair and makeup, and the photographer coming and going. After the ceremony in the garden, the waitstaff did a flawless job with drinks and canapes, and this good service continued on into dinner. The food was delicious, having the benefit of the chefs at Sylvia's restaurant. The Sylvia room was a beautiful venue for the reception - I couldn't believe how beautiful it looked. With a three-course dinner and a 5-hour drinks package, it was very good value. We could not have been happier with how the day turned out."

In the weeks since our wedding, we have only received glowing reports (from our friends & family) about Shangri-La Gardens. Whether it be the beautiful lay out of the room, the great food, or the excellent service. Thank you again for all you have done to make our wedding extra special."

"May we thank you Shangri-La Gardens for the friendly welcome at Sylvia's for our 50th Wedding Anniversary and for showing us around. It certainly brought back memories. We had a most enjoyable evening, the food was good & the service provided by Arran was excellent. We would particularly like to thank you for the thoughtfulness by giving Edna a beautiful arrangement of roses. They were much appreciated."

"I would just like to thank everyone in the restaurant for our dining experience tonight, 23rd April. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and the staff went out of their way to make it a great night for us. As a hospitality veteran on 20+ years, it comes as a very welcome surprise for staff to go the extra step for you."
