SERVICES

Here at The Oaklands, we recognise the importance of working closely with each and every client in ensuring we meet all of your requirements.

Based on our experience of providing accommodation and acting as a venue for many different business purposes, we have put together specific packages all of which we are sure will meet your requirements. We pride ourselves on our expertise in tailoring packages to suit your exact needs and working closely with you in creating this.

When booking a conference or meeting with you will meet our event co-ordinator who will work closely with you in arranging your event. When you join us for your conference you will be met by your Host who will have been fully briefed on the timings and requirements of your event and of whom you will have a constant contact with during your time with us.

Your dedicated Host will meet and greet your delegates on arrival and will provide a full delegate briefing. They are responsible for ensuring your business event is a success.

We not only understand the needs of a business when selecting a venue to hold a conference but we also understand the essentiality of us managing the whole process for you. Our ethos is to take away the pressures and time involved in organising an event to leave you to concentrate on the business in hand.

At The Oaklands, we are committed to meeting requirements, service, quality and exceeding expectations - all of the time.
