Hospitality Guaranteed Annual Client Event 2016, in Partnership with Crathorne Hall 14 Apr 2016

As we continue to develop the HGOneStop brand and online solutions, there isn't a better time to shout about our achievements and tell our clients all about the new services we have to offer. We teamed up with Crathorne Hall to host our annual client event, on the 31st March 2016, in-line with the launch of EventStop and its self-managed service. EventStop is our brand new online solution to help save you time, money and your sanity!

We had exciting plans for the evening consisting of welcoming pre-drinks, in the Durham Suite, with a snapshot of EventStop to give our clients a taste of things to come. Following a sneak peak of Eventstop hosts from Crathorne Hall showed guests around the grand 1906 stately hall. Overlooking the Leven Valley, on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors, the hall has played host to politicians, courted royalty and delighted socialites over the decades. The hotel has six very flexible meeting rooms and 37 bedrooms, of which 17 have recently been newly refurbished. Lets not forget their 2 AA Rosettes Restaurant, The Leven, which occupies the old dining room of Crathorne Hall, giving you a sense of the property's history with its wooden panelling, gold gilt ceilings and large windows.

After the show we decided to shake things up a little experiencing a cocktail/mocktail making class from the in-house team at Crathorne Hall, in the Cumbria Suite. This was a great ice-breaker and really got our guests having some fun. It worked extremely well for those staying over who were able to drink; and non-alcoholic cocktails were made by clients driving home. Definitely a team building experience with a difference for any offsite meetings, which doesn't have to result in your delegates being intoxicated.

Lastly, we ended the evening with a delicious 3-course meal in the Yorkshire Suite and departed with Hospitality Guaranteed goodie bags. Within the goodie bags we provided guests with additional information on some of the key features EventStop has to offer...

EventStop enables you to:

  • Source the perfect venue
  • Setup an event webpage providing delegates with immediate and direct access to information
  • Access the event dashboard to manage event logistics, spend and revenue - all in one place!
  • Save valuable time with instant reporting at the touch of a button
  • Enjoy rich functionality whether collating delegate information, dinner menu or seminar options

Did all of the above appeal to you? Are you an event organiser looking for new innovative solutions to help save you valuable time? If so, then EventStop is for you! It's quick and easy to use to set up your events and will help make cost savings through its simple registration and booking process.

Mercure George Washington Hotel 10 Mar 2016

Situated 15minutes from Newcastle, Sunderland and Durham, and only 15 minutes from Newcastle Airport, the Mercure George Washington Hotel is at the heart of three Northern cities. It’s in the perfect location for travellers visiting the North East whether for business or leisure. Boasting an 18-hole championship golf course with a new floodlit 16 bay driving range and state-of-the-art gym, spa and beauty facilities, with 103 bedrooms and four meeting rooms, the hotel has plenty to offer.

Why not indulge in some traditional afternoon tea with a twist, with freshly made sandwiches and savoury scones, and compliment your treats with a bottle of Prosecco or tea and coffee at your choice? The newly extended and spacious restaurant has a light and airy feel with floods of natural daylight, overlooking views of the golf course through floor to ceiling windows. Boasting a stylish bar and lounge area adjacent to the restaurant providing a truly exclusive venue for weddings or private dining, giving guests privacy and flexibility. 

From a 20 delegate boardroom, in the Kennedy Suite, up to 200 theatre style in the Clinton Suite, the Mercure George Washington Hotel can accommodate for your specific meeting or event requirements. There is also a stone bake pizza oven in the patio area overlooking the golf course, which is perfect for summer meetings with a difference.

In addition, the hotel has also recently launched its new Carter and Fitch restaurant and bar area, at the front of the hotel, to seat up to 60 covers at a time, with more room available on the outside terrace. Carter and Fitch serve a variety of fresh and seasonal dishes including pizzas, steaks and burgers, with ingredients all locally sourced. The new area can also be used for any meetings if requested.

The hotel is very flexible with the ability to incorporate golf into corporate packages and tailor to your requirements where possible. Check out our images of the afternoon tea experience on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/105731372849527/photos/pcb.921461211276535/921455737943749/?type=3&theater
