What is a Conference Hotel?
Conference hotels in the UK specialise in catering specifically to the needs of business guests. At Sundial venues, we pride ourselves on our focused approach to business guests, whether these are business travellers seeking hotel accommodation in the UK or delegates who are attending events at our conference venues in Northamptonshire, Warwickshire or Surrey.
Conference hotels strive to provide the ideal environment for business guests to both thrive and unwind at the end of their working day.
This can only be achieved by ensuring that conference facilities and leisure facilities are first-class, not to mention high standard bedrooms, equipped with the business guest in mind.
Sundial’s Northamptonshire meeting venue, Highgate House was an originator of the conference centre concept, offering conference and meeting facilities to adhere to the high standards of the prestigious International Association of Conference Centres (IACC), of which Sundial Venues are all members.
Sundial guarantee that they provide better standard facilities than any other venues; all meeting and conference rooms are specialist dedicated rooms for this specific purpose (they aren’t doubled up as dining rooms, instead we have a number of separate private dining rooms and restaurants).
All meeting rooms feature natural daylight, specialist conference equipment including projection screens, flip charts, stationery, wobble-free tables and ergonomic conference chairs, all of which, along with a free syndicate room, are included in our all-inclusive meeting packages.
Meanwhile, bedrooms provide free, unlimited WiFi (available in all areas throughout every Sundial Venue, without the hassle of a pass-code or ID), a well-lit working desk area, a flat screen television with laptop connectivity, an iPod/mp3 docking station with radio alarm clock, a trouser press and iron, refreshments and hot drink making facilities and toiletries from the Gilchrist and Soame's ‘BeeKind' toiletry range to aid in your relaxation after a long working day.
What’s more, we understand that when you’ve spent the day in meetings all you want to do is distract your mind and body, so whether that means hitting the gym, going for a walk through the acres of grounds surrounding our country house venues or relaxing over a drink in our cosy bars, we have just the thing you need.
Unlike ordinary hotels, conference hotels can only be accessed with prior notice or bookings so there is no issue of ‘through traffic’ from the public and generally guests are likeminded, hoping to achieve the same as you – to stay in a peaceful, distraction-free, comfortable environment – by selecting a conference hotel.
