We recently organised a conference here which was over 2 days with 220 delegates. I personally didn't stay at this hotel but others who did were pleased with the accommodation.
As far as a conference venue, it worked very well. Location is fabulous and you get glimpses of the views all day long as you wonder between sessions. The main conference room was set up classroom style and it worked very well. The staging team was excellent - we had no issues at all with presentations and technology. The expo was held in another large room and again the process of set up and take down was smooth and seamless. The food during the day (we had our conference dinner elsewhere) was excellent with some delicious curries and hearty food. The staff were very helpful and polite both in the conference area and in the reception and bar.
The only disappointment was that the bar did close at around 12:30am after the conference dinner which is the time when everyone has headed back to the hotel and are ready for a couple of quiet drinks before bed. It may have been a licencing issue, but it would have been good if management had extended the opening hours for this one night.
An excellent conference overall and I would recommend this venue for a well organised and professional experience.
