From the moment we were in contact with Eastwood Hall, we knew our event would be a brilliant success. The event team were helpful and speedy in their response to all requests (no matter how bizarre!) and the facilities that were offered were fantastic. It was an amazing day and having our whole or ganisation together at such a beautiful and well-equipped venue was nothing short of inspiring. We could not recommend Eastwood Hall enough – we were so pleased with how they looked after all our needs that we decided to make it an annual event. They even booked the weather. Well done Eastwood Hall – we can’t thank you enough.
Our organisation has had an ongoing relationship with Kents Hill Park for many years. The Kents Hill team understand the training business and if delegates are fed well and sleep well, this makes for an optimum learning experience when delegates attend their training. The hotel has gone above and be yond during COVID to make guests feel safe and share advance information on Health and Safety and cleaning regimes which bring comfort to delegates. The hotel has articulated clearly the processes and procedures in place to prevent and mitigate the risks of COVID. They are very flexible to our requirements and on many occasions have supported last minute, high volume bookings without issue. The hotel menu is frequently changed (which benefits longer term stays) and caters to a wide range of dietary requirements and tastes. There is great Wi-Fi signal and more than ample parking which are key to business guests. We have always found the Kents Hill Team to have customer service at the heart of their delivery and look forward to working with them in the future.
