Summer is on the way and as the days get longer there is only one thing on our minds…
Yes, I know it’s a long way off but if you are organising a big event the sooner we start looking the better. Brochures are beginning to arrive from hotels and venues around the country with some exciting ideas. If you’re in charge of organising the main event do give us a call to discuss options.
The Strand Palace in London is now a four star property! They offer a variety of room sizes, with rates that match, from the Cosy Single (pictured here) to Executive King rooms.
The meeting rooms are bright and airy even without natural daylight and they are offering day delegate rates from £48.00—not bad for London.
I recently visited Royal Windsor Racecourse. There are lots of possibilities for private venue hire, either in one of hospitality boxes, the permanent marque or one of the 23 meeting rooms. Even the field used for parking can be hired for big events. They are a really attentive and imaginative team—a pleasure to work with.
We have featured the Aviator previously but Karen visited recently and was so impressed by the friendly, helpful staff and the hotel generally that we wanted to highlight it again. “The meeting spaces are great.” says Karen “Flexible, with natural daylight and some have outdoor space — ideal for barbecues etc. The bedrooms are spacious, many with good views of the airfield and the food was lovely—really interesting choices especially at breakfast where they offered the cooked breakfast and cereals but also fresh fish, fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, pastries and breads.”
We had some great feedback for a meeting which took place at Kilworth House in Leicester. The delegates said, “It is a beautiful hotel, the food was excellent & service very efficient.” Many of them have said that they would look at booking the hotel for a weekend away.
An event at Horwood House last month went very well. They offer an extensive selection of meeting rooms and have a great team to look after the delegates. The weather even behaved itself for the BBQ in the grounds which everyone agreed was a thoroughly enjoyable way to round off the event.
Looking for an incentive trip of a lifetime? We had a fascinating presentation recently from a Destination Management company that can organise all the special elements to make a trip to Finnish Lapland a true experience to remember. From an overnight in the Arctic Snow Hotel, reindeer pulled sledges, quad bikes on the ice, dinner in log cabins and so much more. Costs can be from as little as €1400 per person!
Over the years we have had the pleasure of working with many really helpful companies who can assist with all sorts of activities wherever you want to stay. They are a great way to get the most out of your trip as they know the local area exceptionally well and have all the right contacts. From unique transport, local food and drink producers, team building activities and off site dinners.
Another great refurbishment
After a multi-million pound refurbishment the Waldorf Hilton now has 298 beautiful bedrooms and great meeting rooms including the Palm Court (pictured here). They are offering day delegate rates from £65.00 with 1 in 10 delegates going free (terms and conditions apply)
