Success Stories

For meeting rooms …

We were very impressed with the service offered by Edinburgh Training and Conference Venue. Meeting rooms and catering were excellent and the level of staff support was outstanding. Technical support was outstanding too and also very impressive was the assistance from reception in greeting our interview candidates and showing them to the coffee lounge.

All staff approached for help were unfailingly pleasant and very competent. Lunch (buffet) was excellent – high quality and generous amounts. Tea break cakes were delicious too and staff delivering the food were very sensitive about not interrupting our interviews.

The James Hutton Institute

For conference space …

Thanks very much for hosting our session this week, which went very well. In total 60 people booked and although we had some cancellations and some no shows there were 37 people at the session.

Yet again the Edinburgh Training and Conference Venue has provided us with excellent hospitality and I would encourage anyone looking for a venue to give you a call. I would like to pass on a special mention and thanks to your team who were really helpful on the night, they certainly uphold your philosophy of “If we can, we will”.


For training rooms …

As a regular trainer in the Edinburgh Training and Conference Venue, I am constantly impressed with the professionalism displayed by every member of staff.

The manager is always on hand to welcome the trainer regardless of what time I arrive (7:30 onwards) and I love the continuous upgrades at the Venue. I travel throughout the UK and this is by far the best training venue. Outstanding attention to detail!

Bray Leino

For workshops …

It is hard to find a venue who are so accommodating and flexible to our needs! The room was great and the lunch was very nice – really good selection (even gluten free option for me that I wasn’t expecting!).

All the staff were very friendly and approachable. Everything was exactly as requested – so please pass my thanks onto the team. It was a pleasure working with you and I’m looking forward to coming back in the future.

Specialist Dementia Units
