About Sundial group
We are an award-winning events group with a venue finding agency, a team building company and two of our own business hotels.
Established in 1964, Sundial was the first to recognise the need for dedicated meeting environments, creating the UK’s first conference hotel at Highgate House in Northamptonshire. Since then, and in continuous response to customer needs, we established an additional business hotel, a team building company – Teamscapes Learning – and a national and international venue finding agency – SOS.
With over 50 years’ experience in looking after groups for all kinds of meetings and occasions, we’re the experts in events. Everything we do, we do with the confidence of our experience, with the attitude that nothing is ever too much trouble and that no challenge can’t be overcome.
Perhaps the most overused phrase in our industry? We really are unique, as the only family owned and operated hotel and hospitality group of our size in the UK. We pride ourselves on welcoming groups and love hosting unique events, celebrations and conferences – making sure you and your guests enjoy the best experience possible. Don’t just take our word for it, see some of our testimonials to get a flavor for what our customers say.
We’re committed to being an ethical employer and have a conscience about everything we do. To give just a few examples; our businesses all run on reduced energy, a Sundial venue was the first in the conference sector to pay its employees the Living Wage, and we give home to over 500,000 honey bees in our grounds. We don’t do these things because we have to, we do them because they’re part of who we are.
Sundial continues to be owned and run by the Chudley family. We’re bigger now, but our ethos remains the same; to look after customers with the same care and empathy we gave our first guests over 50 years ago.
We’re proud to have plenty of ambassadors who endorse our commitment to service, attention to detail, flexibility, and responsiveness. Over the years, we’ve won hundreds of industry awards and with 94% of our customers willing to recommend us, there’s always a happy customer we can introduce you to.
