VA Function Rooms Dordrecht

Villa Augustus has three function rooms. Two of them – the Wantijzaal and the Moestuinzaal – are in the water tower. And, in the summer months, when the lemon trees can go outside, the Limonaia is also available. Meetings (also for more than one day), lunch, dinner, breakfast, an extensive afternoon tea or a reception: you can enjoy all of these in the three function rooms. And, of course, you can do much more – you can even get married here! In good weather, you can take your marriage vows under the trees in the garden.

Dinner

Dining at Villa Augustus is intimate and relaxed, just like eating with your friends or family. The tables are decorated festively and we serve your choice from the menu (depending on what the season has to offer) on serving dishes. The food looks delicious and you will find it difficult to be polite and let your fellow diners fill their plates first… 
Or would you rather have a buffet?

Meetings

If you hold a meeting at Villa Augustus, you have an excellent view of the garden. You compose your breakfast, lunch or dinner yourself in advance, and depending on which function room you hire. Small groups can also eat in the restaurant, from the menu. That changes according to the season, and part of it changes every two months. You can also hire a range of technical equipment, including a  beamer, a projection screen and a flip-over. 
And….feel free to spend a night in our hotel!

3 DIFFERENT FUNCTION ROOMS

The ‘Wantijzaal’ and the ‘Moestuinzaal’

Like the restaurant, the water tower stands in the middle of the garden. The Moestuinzaal and the Wantijzaal (about 80 m2 each) can be found in the former engine room on the ground floor of the water tower. Both have a pleasant atmosphere and have retained their industrial character. The high windows make the rooms very light and offer a magnificent view of the garden. They are decorated with special, large bouquets every week and there is a small vase of flowers from the garden on each table. Both rooms have doors opening onto the garden, where the mulberry trees offer refreshing shade in the summer.

  • Daytime: €55 per hour (minimum of 3 hours)
  • Evening: €250

For a standing event, these rooms can accommodate a maximum of 60 persons. For a seated event, such as a meeting, dinner, lunch or afternoon tea, that is a maximum of 42 persons, depending on how the seating is arranged. The following arrangements are possible:

Large glass doors open, curtains waving, special bouquets of flowers and birds singing. Long, beautifully set and decorated tables for a festive dinner. Or perhaps a standing event, such as drinks or a reception. Or an extensive lunch … Italy on the Wantij!
