"What did you do well? - Welcoming us to the venue and helping us to set up. Setting the tone at the welcome meeting (Simon is a star!!) Having a wonderful venue set in beautiful countryside. Being relaxed about the use of the venue and making us feel so welcome and relaxed. Generally being a delight to deal with, and making everything so simple and straight forward - a lot of '5 star' venues could learn a lot for their customer services skills from spending a week with you :-)"
