Halifax Hall

“The attendees were very impressed with the quality of the organisation, the food and the accommodation.  The welcome packs also went down a treat. The team were attentive and professional; nothing was too much trouble.”
Sarah A Fulton Tindall, The Russell Partnership

“I want to  really praise the Halifax Hall hotel staff all of them. Wonderful service Saturday night and again at breakfast on Sunday , lovely location, good food  great value for money at the alumni discount rates. Particularly I would like to thank the duty manager who looked after our event Frankie and Receptionist Emily. One of our friends has symptoms of Alzheimers and he told the staff because he was having difficulty finding his room. This was very sensitively handled.”
– Roy Hurling

The Ridge

From first contact, the event organiser was professional, efficient and made sure that everything was exactly what I wanted. We had around 120 delegates on the day and the feedback I received was excellent, all very impressed with the venue and the quality of the catering. The venue staff could not do enough for us and were all extremely helpful. We were so impressed I’ve have decided to use The University of Sheffield again this year.”
Caroline Holland, VetsNow Ltd

Accommodation

 “I just wanted to thank you for helping facilitate an absolutely belting weekend for my brother’s Stag. The service we got the whole weekend was second to none, unbelievably good value too. All the staff we met were super friendly, welcoming, and not in the least bit bothered by some slightly ridiculous behaviour from members of our crew!

We are already booking tickets for Tramlines next year and plan to book the same exact arrangement with you too so I’ll be in touch in a few months’ time.”

“I’ve already tweeted it but I just say again how pleased I was with the catering for my conference. Everything arrived on time, was well presented and excellent quality.

I also liked being able to order online, check my orders online, and the one minor amendment I had to make was very promptly dealt with”.
– Jane Hodson,  Senior Lecturer in Language and Literature, The University of Sheffield

“Please could you convey our thanks to your team for the excellent catering they provided for the Dutch and Flemish Cultural Studies Symposium. The ‘Up-Tempo Finger Buffet’ was especially well received and there were many comments about the superior quality of the food, especially your signature sausage rolls and the feta and courgette parcels.
 
Thank you too for the special lunch you provided for our visiting performance artist. She asked where we had sourced the meal and was impressed when I told her it had come from the University-based caterers.
 
Please can you especially thank your delivery staff, especially the patient man who took the lunch back into the refrigerated van for hour an hour to keep it cool that bit longer!
 
We really couldn’t done what we did without your help.”
– Dr Alison Teale, Quality Management Receptionist / Clerical Assistant, The University of Sheffield
