Feedback for Clare College Conferencing
Conference organisers and delegates have given us some excellent feedback, particularly since the Gillespie Centre was opened in 2009. Not only are we very proud of these accolades, we have also ensured that where positive changes can be made, they have been.
Receiving your feedback is extremely important for us to improve our facilities and services so we can ensure you can hold outstanding and memorable conferences and events.
Many of our clients have been coming to Clare College for years. Here's what some of them say:
I cannot think of anything I would want to change or improve; wonderful facilities and excellent staff, who are all true ambassadors for Clare College – I did not meet anyone who did not possess a friendly and professional disposition.

"The accommodations were great. Our needs were met every step of the way with meals, wireless connections, laundry, room cleanliness on a daily basis and the friendly staff all over Clare."

[The thing I most enjoyed was] "The professionalism of the service from all members of staff - from the conference office, to the porters, the catering team, housekeepers and the support services team."
