The hotel and conference centre, with a 700-acre estate including 36-hole golf course and award-winning spa, was presented with the Bronze award for ‘Best Christmas Corporate Party Venue’ at the ceremony at Emirates Old Trafford on Friday 11 May.
Comments from the National Venue Awards Judging Panel 2018 on Whittlebury’s winning entry were that the hotel demonstrated good service standards, innovative and creative proposition and flexibility for their guests’ needs; that they received strong feedback from clients and significant return business rates, and a high success rate in terms of year-on-year improvement.
The countryside venue was also shortlisted in two further categories at the national awards, for ‘Best Wedding Venue’ and ‘Most Versatile Venue’.
Marc Webster, commercial director at Whittlebury Hall, said, “We are absolutely delighted to be awarded a Bronze at the National Venue Awards, especially in such a highly-competitive category as the Best Christmas Corporate Party Venue. The announcement of the award coincides with the launch of our Christmas party packages for 2018, which this year will have an alpine lodge theme with ‘Aprés Ball’ party nights and are shaping up to be some of our best to date.”
