All staff are friendly and accommodating
Great place to hold a seminar of training event with very friendly staff who go the extra mile to make sure you have all you need. The facilities are great with the rooms been well lit, well furnished, well equipped and flexible to use. Tea and coffee were available ‘on tap’ which is a great bonus feature. The buffet food provided had a welcome variety and was to a good standard. Would recommend this venue which also has a cafe shop, WiFi and an comfortable seated area.
