Function Terms & Conditions

Free Room Hire

When booking a function at the Union Hotel we do not charge a room hire fee. Dependent on the size of function, and location required, there is a minimum function spend in lieu of any room hire

Function Deposit

When booking a function, a tentative booking may be placed. This signals an intention to book, and does not require any deposit, however this does not guarantee the booking.

If a second enquiry for the same date is made, and no prior dep osit has been received, a courtesy call will be made to the original enquiry. If unable to get a clear response in short time, The Union Hotel reserves the right to accept th e s econd booking without further notice.

To confirm the booking, and ensure the d ate is locked in, a $100 deposit is req uired.


In the event of a cancellation or postponement of a function by the event organiser(s), The Union Hotel requires a formal notification, in the form of a letter, fax or email to the relevant contact addresses provided on this document. If the function is ca ncelled within 3 weeks of the event date, The Union Hotel reserves the right to withhold the deposit at its discretion.

Minimum spend

The minimum spend for a function is dependent on the location and size of the proposed event. We do not charge a minimum spend for a small booking where only 1 - 3 tables are reserved. An event that requires exclusive use of a room will incur a minimum spend. Please refer to the relevant location you choose for the relevant minimum spend. A minimum spend may be affected by th e season/day. Any minimum spend includes both food and beverage purchases.

Room capacity

Room capacity varies dependent on the style of function (cocktail vs. Sit down meal) and location used. Refer to relevant location for capacity information.
