Fantastic night with friends and family by the pool, brilliant food and cocktails and we has so much fun in the photo booth! Thanks for ‘looking after us’!

We enjoyed a dip in the pool before dinner and had a lovely meal. Great food and great service – will be back again!

We recently visited Marbles and had a fantastic time. There is a wide range of food, which means that everyone is sure to find something that they like. Our children loved the special touches of the balloons, colouring books, little packets of jelly beans and the colouring pencil packs!

The place is all we had heard about and more - we couldn't believe the selection, but it was the staff who truly made the night for us. They were obviously ambassadors for Taranaki too, as we got lots of ideas about what to see and do.
