A Golden Start to 2016 with Venue Verdict

Go back to all news

One of the UK’s leading market research consultancies has presented us with a national accreditation for our excellent levels of customer satisfaction.

We have been awarded a VenueVerdict Gold Standard title by BDRC Continental which recognises the hotel’s excellence in providing a quality customer experience and venue for businesses and conferences.

The accolade is awarded to venues which recorded the highest standard of customer satisfaction – 70 per cent or higher – by more than 40 businesses throughout the course of 2015.

Coombe Abbey is among 39 venues across the entirety of the UK which have made the prestigious category and is the only independent hotel to have been awarded the accreditation.

Now in our 21st year, our twelfth century property recently experienced a record year after our permanent marquee held its 350th event, and it is the first time the hotel has received the Gold Standard certification.

Ron Terry, general manager of Coombe Abbey Hotel, said the accreditation is a reflection of the efforts of the team to provide not only a quality service for guests of leisure, but also a quality venue and experience for businesses which host events and conferences at the historic site.

“To receive national recognition in what can be a very competitive events and trade industry is an outstanding feat, and this is made all the more impressive when you realise we are the only privately-owned business of 39 in the Gold Standard category,” he said.

“BDRC Continental is the largest independent market research firm in the UK and featured more than 370 venues in its VenueVerdict Accreditation, demonstrating the gravity of the accreditation.

“Throughout the course of 2015 the team worked to build its reputation as a business and leisure destination of choice so it is rewarding to see our efforts coming to fruition as we are continue to gain more accreditations and accolades – we were also recently shortlisted for three titles in the M&IT Awards.”
