Coombe Abbey, which offers easy access to the region’s economic hotspots including Birmingham and Coventry, is launching a purpose-built marquee, specifically designed for larger functions involving up to 350 guests.
The new multi-purpose venue, erected on the hotel’s East Terrace, will boast its own bar, stage and dance floor, ideal for corporate entertaining, awards ceremonies and dinners, as well as weddings and other private functions.
It will also come fully carpeted, with chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, ivory lining draped on the walls and a number of windows offering views across Coombe Abbey’s grounds and gardens, making it equally suited for conferences and exhibitions.
The new marquee, which will be launched in June, will be the largest of Coombe Abbey’s eight function suites, which currently cater for between 25 and 180 guests.
It has been specifically designed to allow visitors to enjoy the history of the former Cistercian Abbey in a more modern and larger-scale setting and will be accessible via the hotel’s main reception or its own private entrance, with the option to park a small number of vehicles alongside for new car and product launches.
Ron Terry, General Manager at Coombe Abbey hotel, said: “Corporate events are a huge part of Coombe Abbey hotel and this new marquee represents our ongoing commitment to cater for business functions of every size and style.”
The four star Coombe Abbey hotel, which is set in 500 acres of historic parkland, boasts 119 individually designed bedrooms and an-house restaurant, with ample free car parking available on site.
Hire of the new marquee will be priced from £5000 weekdays and £8000 weekends. A full range of delegate packages are also available.
