We really are very grateful for all your help in organising the day and the catering was lovely (especially the cakes). We really enjoyed the venue, especially having the separate lunch/break area as it really allowed our participants to relax and chat after the intensive course.

A great venue, very easy to organise and staff were always helpful. We were left to our devices on the day which was great, and the drinks facilities were exceptional. Overall we loved the venue, thank you.

I’ve just been through our feedback forms for our training day on Wednesday 13 May and all attendees were very complimentary about your venue. Great location, very good facilities and a delicious lunch. I’m also very grateful for all the on-the-day help you and your colleagues provided, it was very much appreciated.
