      Unfortunately we were very disappointed with the lack of service throughout our day. Apart from a College Court employee greeting us in reception first thing we did not see another member of staff to check that we were in the correct room, to see if we knew where refreshments are, to check if the trainer could use the IT (I had to go to reception to get help), we needed help again but because it slowed things down before the trainer said not to bother, no one came to explain the lunch system, no one asked how it had gone towards the end of the day, it appeared that there was no one else using the conference suites so I am unsure why no one came to talk to us at all throughout the day.

      Chloe and Laura went to very great lengths to accommodate our first training after lock-down. Laura was very very good at keeping us informed of every step and Chloe helped out on the training days and gave an excellent and friendly service

      Don't be afraid of the social distancing measures that have been put in place by College Court. They work extremely well and all our participants felt very safe and looked after. College Court have thought of all the steps necessary.

      It has been great to be back at College Court and all of the staff have been very welcoming. I have been incredibly impressed with the whole experience of being on-site. For many colleagues getting back into F2F meetings has been a time of worry and it adds an extra layer of stress as an organiser worrying about everyone feeling safe and comfortable in the situation. The layout of the rooms has been perfect to meet our needs and has been done with consideration of the event- everyone has quickly felt at ease. Handsanitiser is everywhere but in a way that isn't scary and all of the things that make meetings @ college court 'a treat' like the snack station, has been adapted in a really clever way. We had lunch on one occasion and it was really well organised, the team got access to a lovely meal with a range of options but in a really safe way.

      Do you have any good advice/tips for other bookers/organiser?

      The team @ College Court are really adaptable and helpful- don't stress about possibilities- just call them up ask.

      It is impossible to pick one person out - from Laura Joliffe, Michelle Dix, Chloe, the bar staff - all went the extra mile to make our event a total success in this very unstable pandemic time

      Do you have any good advice/tips for other bookers/organiser?

      Trust the staff - they are doing a brilliant job in difficult circumstances.

      Michelle Dix is certainly a credit to the business. There were one or two issues we needed to overcome and Michelle and the team were great in getting these resolved for us. As a result of the way these were handled, we will definitely be sure to use the venue again.

      Jo Winterton was outstanding as she responded to any questions I had immediately. In fact the whole team from waiting staff to reception were great. Lunch and evening meals were delicious and fresh. The room I stayed in was modern and clean. Would definitely recommend for your meeting needs

      Jacqui from the events team (who left on 17 Jan) was extremely helpful in meeting our needs. E-mails were answered quickly and efficiently. I have no doubt that Michelle who taken over from her will be of the same accomodating way. All the staff at College Court are very helpful and polite from the Events Team to the catering staff.

      Do you have any good advice/tips for other bookers/organiser?

      Only that if you want an excellent venue to hold your event in, you should look no further than College Court

      We had a very successful day and the venue was much appreciated by all of our delegates and trainers. It’s a lovely, really interesting venue that works extremely well and we’ll certainly recommend it to colleagues and use it again ourselves if we’re in the region.

      Even more importantly than the building has been the quality of the service we received. From our first contact to leaving, every member of staff stood out because of the quality of the service they offered. This started with the sales/ marketing team who were pleasant, efficient, supportive and timely ( a particular thank you to Laura for tolerating our slightly delayed arrival on Friday with such good grace and still fitting in a great tour). The staff on reception were equally friendly and helpful (even when we asked for printing late in the evening) as were the staff in the bar / restaurant which we visited. On Saturday we felt very well supported, despite it being a weekend, and Ollie did a superb job for us. Being given a refund for the absent delegate was yet another example of your excellent customer service.

      Overall there was an attention to detail and quality that was superb throughout.

      Do you have any good advice/tips for other bookers/organiser?

      You can rely upon the team to be responsive, attentive and available.

      I have never worked with an organisation with people who go the extra mile like the team at College Court. I can't pick one person out as they all do everything they can to make sure everyone gets the best experience. I feel very lucky to be able to work with them, their positive attitudes and their can do approach is refreshing.

      Do you have any good advice/tips for other bookers/organiser?

      They are an amazing team, if any issues arise contact the team as they have never not been able to help sort any problems (they have been few and far between and I use them a lot!). They are also very flexible with dietary requirements (they don't give vegans just salad etc.).
