We recently held our annual conference at The Park Hotel and had a great experience. The staff were all very helpful and supportive, and the accommodation options were perfect for our large group. With the use of their conference room and buffet dinner options, our conference went very smoothly, and all our guests had good things to say. We were particularly impressed with their ability to accommodate a variety of events such as workshops, presentations and large group dinners, and the attentiveness of the staff was excellent.
