A LEADING North East hotel is taking care of business for its corporate clients with a range of classic – and newly refurbished – rooms available as part of its conference and events offering.
Hardwick Hall Hotel near Sedgefield – part of Ramside Estates – is one of the region’s most popular business and event venues, hosting a wide variety of events, conferences, awards and charity balls, with rooms catering for 10 to 1500 people.
And now, the hotel is hoping to entice more conference and meeting organisers, following a £150,000 refurbishment to one of its leading function rooms – part of an ongoing £350,000 refurbishment which will see the hotel’s bedrooms, bars and boardrooms redecorated.
The Coleman Suite, which can take up to 380 seated guests, underwent the £150,000 revamp earlier this year and the process involved redecorating, laying new carpets and replacing the existing furniture.
The newly-refurbished suite can also be divided into smaller rooms, making it a flexible space suitable for meetings, balls and awards.
The four-star hotel, which is set in County Durham’s Hardwick Country Park, has a range of conference suites available for both little and large corporate events, and additional incentives include free Wi-fi, free parking on site and catering support.
Those travelling from further afield can also opt to stay in one of Hardwick Hall Hotel’s 50 rooms and dine in the hotel’s acclaimed Rib Room Steakhouse and Grill.
“We’re delighted to offer conference-goers a versatile experience here at Hardwick Hall, with plenty of options available, from large banqueting suites to smaller meeting rooms,” said Lee Kirtland, General Manager at Hardwick Hall Hotel.
“We like to think we have something for everyone and hope that those visiting for conferences will see exactly why we’re one of Durham’s and the Tees Valley’s foremost business and event venues.”
The hotel’s John Burdon Suite, which can seat up to 120 guests, has a range of self-contained facilities including a bar, an upper level with a bird’s eye view for delegates and an outdoor courtyard with a purpose-built BBQ.
The Boyne Suite also an option for daytime delegates seeking to seat up to 100 delegates and The Boardroom is a smaller, more select, meeting room suitable for 20 people or less.
Hardwick Hall Hotel also has a range of larger options available, including the Paddock Marquee and the Grand Marquee, which are often used for large corporate events, weddings and balls.
