Residential conferences

Escaping the constraints of your everyday work environment puts your delegates at ease, giving you the time to connect without distractions. Our conference venues allow people to come together, build relationships and connect with their team.

Home From Home

Your home away from home

We’re in the hospitality business. That means we treat our conference guests like we treat a guest in our own home. From the way we greet you, serve you, down to the way we say goodbye – we’ve got you. So, choosing one of our venues for your residential conference really is like being at home. What better way is there to spend quality time together over dinner and let your hair down in the bar after a full day of valuable learning?

Excellence is what we do

Whether you’re running a small team meeting or a conference for 200 delegates, our conference venues are purpose-built and multi-award-winning. All our conference rooms have fully integrated audio-visual systems including video conferencing for hybrid meetings, air conditioning, natural daylight and super-fast free 1Gbps Wi-Fi network, giving you the perfect meeting spaces to achieve your objectives.
