As someone who attends a fair amount of hotel-based venues for conferences, exhibitions and business meetings, I was pleasantly surprised by this one. It's fair to say that the setting is quite lovely, and a walk around the grounds s recommended. The main building will put you in mind of certain highly successful TV drama. The extension is somewhat of a monstrous carbuncle visually, but is actually really pleasant as a conference facility inside. The main conference room was excellent, and the separate satellite rooms for other meetings served their purpose well.
I was particularly impressed with the catering. What a good idea to serve the mean in small, easy to hold pots rather than plates! How many of us have stood juggling a plate in one hand, knife and fork in the other, no-where to put a glass and tried to remain dignified and elegant in the process? These little pots meant you could have two or three different foods as well, and the quality was really good.
