As a beautiful four star manor house hotel with the quintessentially English touches like a cosy country lounge, award winning cuisine and flawless service, you could be wrong to assume that Careys Manor Hotel was a small venue.
Along with such luxuries Careys Manor can handle large capacities and groups with the added personal touches of an intimate hotel; boasting 77 sumptuous bedrooms, a multi-award winning spa, three excellent restaurants on site and numerous flexible function rooms suitable for meetings, conferences, banqueting, exquisite private dining and corporate events for 8 to 150 delegates.
Executive Head Chef Chris Wheeldon embraces the tastes of Hampshire, and each new seasons’ freshest ingredients, creating traditional British dishes with an inspirational French twist for his fine dining at The Manor Restaurant at Careys Manor Hotel, whether catering for a couple enjoying a romantic dinner or a corporate getaway of 150, Chris insists on an unforgettable dining experience for all guests.
For Chris and his team the numbers affect their preparation and process but never the quality of their dishes. According to Chris, this is not up for negotiation.
“Whether we are cooking for 1 or 100, the enjoyment and experience of our food should be to the same standard, it is my job to assure that this happens every time. Why should our conference guests receive anything less than excellent because they are with a group of 150?”
Many who visit Careys Manor Hotel are surprised by scale of the function rooms and facilities, and the capacity of guests that the hotel and its three restaurants are able to cater for.
Diane John of Ghost Marketing needed a large venue for 115 delegates from ‘Nimbus’ for a three day event. They required a venue which would deliver the facilities of a large hotel but the personal service that a smaller, more intimate venue could offer, as well as flexibility to adapt to any particular requirements of such a large group.
“On the face of it, it seemed an easy task after all there are countless hotels with a conference offering but it’s surprisingly hard to find one that is a little bit more personal and adaptable Carey’s Manor has the intimacy of a small hotel but it isn’t small!”
So next time you are searching for a large venue with the service excellence and award winning facilities of a boutique hotel with easy access to unrivalled teambuilding facilities and excellent transport links, be sure to think of Careys Manor Hotel in Hampshire.
