I just want to thank you for hosting the NASMA event so brilliantly.  Everyone who attended was impressed both with the venue and facilities. The organisation from start to finish was so easy and stress free, which makes a very welcome change to past events I have organised – so the behind the scenes work is really appreciated!

Many thanks for your team who made our annual dinner such a success. Everyone enjoyed the occasion and they complemented you and your team for your efficiency and high standard of cuisine. Thank you again. If entrusted with organising next year’s dinner, I would like to think I could co-ordinate with you in a similar fashion.

The facilities were fantastic and the support we received from staff at the Hall of Residence was second to none. Not one person has uttered a word of complaint – testament in itself!
