“I can’t fault the team at Ascot. Nothing is ever too much trouble and everyone is a delight to work with!  The event ran smoothly from start to finish, the two rooms worked perfectly for us and the food was fabulous as always. I know our partners always enjoy coming to the racecourse for our annual event because the setting is perfect and it’s so convenient for everyone. I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it as a meeting and event space”

“I wanted to say a very big thank you for your organisation of our team away day which was a huge success. Please pass on our thanks to the staff who looked after us extremely well.  The food amazing and our gluten free guest had a huge feast.  She said her desserts were “to die for”.  The team thought the venue was great and we hope to come back to see you all again.”

“Thanks for the superb support of our event.  I am passionate about the meetings/conferences I organise and want all delegates to be wowed with attention to detail and a brilliant meeting/space. Your support both from my initial visit and right through the event was faultlessly superb; this gave me such confidence and was hugely appreciated. To get such positive feedback from our Senior Leaders was a huge coup and I was enormously proud. Thanks a million for making our day such a success and the team doing such a great job to ‘showcase’ iconic Ascot Racecourse meetings & events.”
