The venue was wonderful and I felt very safe there..!
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our first face to face training event since lockdown such a safe and secure experience.
We have just had our training evaluation report returned and generally everybody had a truly amazing experience at Roehampton.
Nobody mentioned anything about CoVid and I think that is because the safety measures in place made everyone feel very comfortable and created a lovely learning environment.
Many people raved about the food during the whole three days, saying it was top class, fresh and varied. The snacks offered during the breaks we as usual exceptional.
Jill and I want to say thank you for all your support during our delivery.

The lunch was fantastic and the venue light, airy, clean and a joy to spend the day in. There was plenty of space for social distancing and you had thought carefully about all other hygiene aspects. Thanks to all the event staff who took the stress out of the day and made everything easy.
Chairman of the Hopkins Society at Regis University:
It is with pleasure that I write to inform you that our Conference at Roehampton was an unqualified success. It was by far the best Conference we have ever had.
This was in no small way due to the excellent on-site service and attention provided by Anna Teresenko, who is a credit to your Conference management. Our entire group expressed great satisfaction with the organisation, the various meals, and the service that was provided. For my part, I can safely state that having organised Conferences in the US, Ireland and the UK that Anna was the best coordinator I have ever worked with.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Roehampton to anyone.
Thank you for a memorable event.
Lisa Rodrigues from LisaSaysThis.com:
Again, we were warmly welcomed on arrival. Parking was easy and the grounds are gorgeous at this time of year.
The venue is very straightforward to find and the staff are lovely. No request is too small - for example I asked for extra coffee and it arrived almost immediately with a smile. All the catering was delicious and on time.
The rooms are top quality with comfortable seating and excellent equipment which unlike some conference centres, you and the team know how to use! When our room became too hot, you offered to move us without any fuss.
As with such days, the participants have potentially challenging matters to address and the venue can either help or hinder this. For me as facilitator, I felt relaxed and confident being looked after by you, which meant I could give my full attention to facilitating the meeting. I could not recommend your services more highly.
Clare from the Lawn Tennis Association:
Please can I express my enormous thanks to you and your team for all your hard work yesterday. The venue and set up was brilliant The Oak Suite was a great room, bright and light and the three screen were perfect everything worked so well! I must also tell you how well received the lunch was!! I don’t think I have ever had such good comments about the catering before! Lots of positive reviews. So fresh, delish range and I ate well and as a vegan that is almost unheard of!! So a massive thank you from all of us at the LTA British Tennis. We will be back.
Steven Harrison from RATP DEV:
The Roehampton Venues Team supported us very well indeed and the service on the day was top notch. Whenever we needed anything or help it was provided. We were all very impressed with the venue. The Oak Suite was perfect for what we needed and the AV system very simple to setup and control throughout the day. Many guests commented on how nice the venue was. With the large glass windows it creates and light space to work in. Location was very handy with Barnes station down the road and bus routes stops right outside the venue.
Vicki Fecci from ITF Tennis:
Roehampton Venues support as always was excellent we appreciate the flexibility and enthusiastic attitude shown in support of of our events in the planning and when on site. We are very impressed with the meeting space which perfectly suits our requirements for both small SLT meetings and larger staff meetings. The lime tree suite is also a lovely space for breaks.
Clare Williams-Slaven from the Lawn Tennis Association:
Roehampton Venues supported us really well throughout the process from my initial approach to the day of the event, the team are really helpful on site and know their stuff and always on hand when you need them. Everything was exactly how we expected the day to be and the rooms are clean, neat and modern. The refreshments were plentiful, tasty and on time. The team had even gone to the effort to source vegan biscuits which was greatly appreciated.
I wanted to take this opportunity and pass on my thanks for the wonderful way in which you organised and supported our conference on Saturday 2 March. We received really good feedback and when we asked delegates to rate the venue and food (among other things), their comments were resoundingly positive. You and your team did such a great job on Saturday everything went so smoothly and we had lovely feedback from delegates about how much they enjoyed the day and how beautiful the building is. We would definitely use Roehampton Venues again for future events.
Rachael, Associate Director of Partnership Projects:
Many thanks for everything it was a lovely place to learn and work. The Roehampton team were very friendly and kind and the support and planning leading up to the day was excellent.
Elm Grove Conference space was bright, fresh, clean and relaxing. The IT equipment was excellent and modern to suit our training needs. We enjoyed moving out the main meeting space for our breaks and most people used the outside space during lunchtime. The food was excellent. Very fresh and healthy. Good options for everyone and plenty to eat, nobody went hungry and everybody commented on how lovely the food was.
Claire Wesson, Director of The EMDR Academy:
Great conferencing and accommodation so close to London!
We use Elm Grove for business and conferencing and having the accommodation attached is simply brilliant. The rooms are impeccable and everything is so new! It is so easy to access from city centre and visiting Putney for an evening meal is a breeze! We would highly recommend this facility, the staff are fantastic and communication is very easy!
Tricia Scott from HIPC Conference
Parkstead House was light and comfortable. The RV team were very willing to make adaptations to the space and furniture when needed. The outside space was lovely. The building itself interesting and beautiful.
We had lots of good feedback about the venue and were delighted with it. It fitted our needs very well and we felt well taken care of by you and your team throughout the whole process. So many thanks.
Rachael Aylmer from Partnership Projects UK
The Roehampton Venues Team were very supportive on the planning of the event and clear instructions offered for check in to the hotel. The support offered throughout the three days was excellent and their friendly “can do” approach was much appreciated. The whole team at front desk offered warm friendly welcomes each day. Having this level of support meant I could run the training with no worries.
All rooms in Elm Grove Conference centre used for the event were good size, bright, clean and well equipped. Wi-Fi was excellent and all areas were spotless! The food offered for the three days was fresh and plentiful. Our guests stayed over in the hotel and everybody expressed how convenient and clean the rooms were and provided all that a traveller needed.
We have more events booked here and will continue to come back time and time again.
Once again, thank you so much.
