I would highly recommend the Albemarle Centre for all your conference needs. A spacious and well-placed centre within easy reach of the local train station and several public car parks. Catering provision was excellent and the staff are kind and accommodating. The booking process was straightforward and the cost very reasonable. Five stars from me in all respects.

The service users and staff at the Albemarle were extremely friendly and helpful. The food was fresh and there was plenty of it! Overall they worked hard to make our event a success. Thank you very much.

South West Foundation is very grateful to you for helping us to make this event so enjoyable and worthwhile. ... can I just say how well everything was organised. The environment was exactly right for the event... food was excellent and it made such a nice change to have lunch that was healthy, well prepared and so nicely laid out. The people assisting with providing tea and coffees were very helpful and attentive. This all made a real difference.
I would like to take the opportunity of thanking the people who took the time and effort to make this a success. We recommend for anyone wishing to hold a similar event in Taunton.
Below are a small selection of the comments that we received from participants at the event.

We hope we can repeat this again at some stage
With Very Best Wishes
CEO South West Foundation.
I wanted to say a huge thank you for your patience and hospitality at our recent conference. This is the third year we have used you and as always you accommodated all of our requirements.
As for your clients helping out on the day. Given there were nearly 100 of our delegates attending, what a pleasure they were! All of my Bank Managers commented on how wonderful they were to chat with and that we could learn a lot from their customer service skills. They were attentive, engaging and genuinely interested in getting to know us. They served the teas and coffees in a speedy efficient way whilst also bringing a really human element to the day. The cupcakes they had made for us were wonderful. They were good at keeping to the tight time scales I had allowed on our agenda and really supported us, It was an absolute pleasure to meet them all and I hope that next time we use you they will be able to help us out again
Once again a huge thank you!
