We are all hoping that we have finally put the winter weather behind us now as we move on towards the summer and better weather. Summer is a great time to get together with your colleagues for meetings, team building or just for dinner. Here are some hotels and ideas that may be of interest to you.
Andaz Liverpool Street has a lot to offer from the 7 bars/restaurants including a Japanese restaurant, English bar and wine lounge, to the 15 meeting rooms offering a selection of traditional, modern and unique spaces such as the show kitchen and the Temple. The hotel is far from your regular corporate option and in a great location.
Looking for somewhere a bit different for your next residential conference?
Have you considered holding your event in a forest location with your guests housed in their own woodland cabins just a short walk to a central conference room? These are getting more popular and as a result more choices are becoming available. Conferences can be booked at Centre Parcs around the country as well as Forest Holidays but there are other options too such as Hothorpe Hall and Woodlands near Leicester. Here you will find 23 bedrooms over a number of eco-friendly buildings nestled around a meeting room for up to 60 people and if you need more space the Hall has an additional 10 meeting rooms (including a stunning chapel) and 55 further bedrooms. Similar possibilities are available around the country.
Clayton Hotel Chiswick is a cleverly thought out hotel offering good value for money and the feel of a London venue without the London prices. The meeting space and public areas have largely been positioned around the double height atrium giving natural daylight despite some of the rooms not having windows to the outside. The hotel has 227 bedrooms and 8 meeting rooms, the largest of which can cater for up to 330 delegates.
We have had details of summer packages at Warbrook House a grade 1 listed mansion set in 130 acres of gardens. The Marquee is ideal for summer events as is the Garden Suite and their packages include Pimms or prosecco, BBQ or Hog Roast! Bring on the Sunshine!
Latimer Estate in Buckingham has just undergone a £7m refurbishment and now looks beautiful. There are 28 meeting rooms all with super-fast Wifi. The largest room has a maximum capacity of 240. The 205 bedrooms, restaurant, bar, brassiere and outside space make it an excellent choice for large residential conferences.
Here is some feedback from clients that we have booked events on behalf of:
We had very good feedback for Hallmark Hotel Mickleover Court. “The staff were phenomenal, we were all really impressed with the hotel and facilities.”
Excellent feedback for Hilton Sandton in South Africa. We were told that the staff were all very good, friendly and professional and that they would definitely use this hotel again if they go back to South Africa.
