One of the UK’s top country house hotels for conferences, exhibitions and events has had a stylish new makeover of its conference and banqueting spaces. The refurbishment encompassed everything from fresh new carpets to bespoke table linens.
Restyled with neutral decor and modern grey tones, these meeting rooms have been designed to offer the perfect backdrop for all occasions. The refreshed interiors, all with natural light, now provide a sleek and productive space for all types of events including meetings, workshops and presentations, as well as gala lunches and dinners.
As part of the refurbishment, plush new carpets and stylish new chairs have been set against grey walls and taupe curtains to give the rooms a contemporary yet neutral feel. The neutrality of the newly designed banqueting spaces allows clients the flexibility to dress the rooms however they wish and place their own individual stamp and branding on their event.
Sopwell House has long been recognised as one of the most versatile and in-demand corporate hotels outside of London. Only a short 20-minute train ride from London St Pancras, corporate guests of the hotel are invited to enjoy its countless events spaces and facilities, combined with its sought after countryside setting.
Accessed via a private entrance, the award-winning Conference Centre at Sopwell House welcomes guests through the double doors of the conference reception. The Conference Centre houses 14 meeting rooms arranged over two floors, while many ground floor rooms boast direct access to private terrace areas.
Spaces include the royally named Mountbatten suite, St Alban suite, Lady Patricia suite and the Princess Victoria suite – the latter of which offers a private staircase making it a popular choice for the Premiership football teams who regularly visit the hotel.
Connecting the suites is a grand lobby featuring two separate bar areas, each of which can be sectioned off for large private functions. Impressive collections of striking artwork hang throughout the neutrally painted corridor walls, while subtle scents of Jasmine permeate the space.
The boardrooms provide the perfect place to host a company meeting or brainstorming session. The rooms are bright and airy with each featuring a large 80” LCD HD television. Some of the boardrooms feature separate seating areas and all boast tea and coffee stations.
For alfresco meetings, events and team building exercises, Sopwell House boasts an unrivalled space. The hotel offers an enchanting walled garden that spans the perimeter of the hotel’s vast acres, perfect for activities including dodgems, archery, football, a bouncy caste or even an inflatable obstacle course.
The largest function suite, St Alban, can host up to 700 delegates reception style or 250 for a dinner and dance evening. Day delegate packages are available upon request, along with bespoke dining menus.
