My company recently had a conference at Sandford Park Country Hotel. We were extremely pleased that the conference was a great success.
FIrstly our budget was quite tight. Sandford Park Management staff were able to negotiate an excellent plan to fit my budget. This was very helpful.
We had initially drawn up a conference brief detailing our conference requirements. Our expectations were high. The hotel management team worked closely with me to ensure compliance and delivery. The hotel management team also made several calls to discuss the finer details. They virtually followed the conference brief 99.9%. This was great.
The conference venue was very suitable for our 2.5day conference. Tables were well arranged. Refreshments and mints were sufficient. The presentation screen was perfect. The sound system provided was suitable and effective. Staff were on stand-by to assist with any additional requests.
Food was good during the conference. A menu was designed to suit the confernce attendees. Special dietery requirements were also taken care of.
Accomodation was good and clean. Attendees were pleased with this as it was certainly an improvement over the previous year where another venue was used for our conference. This was a relief!
Due to budget constraints, evening team building activities were self created and executed with the help of hotel staff. Again the team building brief was closely followed by the hotel staff. They went out of their way to assist. The venue was set up and decorated as requested by myself. I was most pleased with the end result.
I was most impressed with the humility and respect shown by management and staff at the hotel. All of them were briefed on our conference. This was evident in their commitment towards ensuring a great conference. Even their house-keeping and garden staff were friendly and willing to assist.
Front office staff were professional and eager to please.
All in all, our conference was a great success. Attendees had all positive comments regarding the venue, food, location of venue.suitability for conferencing etc etc.
I am most pleased that this beautiful venue was our 2014 choice for our conference.
