CIPD Annual Conference – March 2017

Hi Marc, We had a committee meeting last night and we all agreed the conference went very well . The feedback forms received and the verbal feedback on the daywere both very positive. Anita and I both feel that the support we had from yourself in advance and from the whole team on day (and Thursday) was a significant contribution to the success of the event. Delegates were very complimentary about the venue.

Overall we were extremely happy with the venue and the service and support we received all of which helped the conference run smoothly. Thank you to you and the rest of the team. There is a strong possibility we will back later this year or early 2018. Regards Lise CIPD

Westbourne Communications – March 2017

As always you guys were incredibly helpful. Making provisions for us to come in on the Sunday afternoon was a real help for us and very much appreciated. Whenever we have an event in Bristol we will always come to you first in the hope you can accommodate us. Thanks so much Annabelle  

Sue & Paul Huntley – Wedding (March 2017)

We cannot Thank the staff highly enough for all the help we received in organising, setting up and the day it's self when we got married here. They are all so professional, the food was outstanding, the waiters and waitresses were amazing. We had our marriage, wedding breakfast, and our evening celebrations and we would highly recommend Gloucestershire cricket club as a venue, the resident DJ Mike, was brilliant, great fun, and again professional and thoughtful. I cannot recommend these guys enough. Best wishes Sue & Paul.

Dennis Sisis (Feb 2017)

Morning Marc, Thank you for your email  following up from our cricket seminar last week.

I cannot thank you and all your staff enough for all the help and support you gave us on the day and during the build up to the event – nothing was too much trouble and everyone was so helpful and accommodating.

The seminar was a huge success, thanks to everyone working together as a team. I cannot thank you all enough as without you we certainly couldn’t make the day the success it was.


Hi Marc, I wish to say a big thank you to you & Tina for all your hard work in making the arrangements for my party. It was a great success & I'm sure everyone enjoyed themselves, I certainly had a ball I had lots of favourable messages from friends who were there. Please will you thank Michelle & the team who ensured that it all ran smoothly, The  Grace room is just superb for such a party, thanks for the blue décor I loved that. Also the food was wonderful I had so many comments about that especially as my guests weren't expecting anything like that. Anyway thanks again for helping to make the evening so successful & enjoyable.


I wanted to say a big Thank You on behalf of everyone; the event was a success! All the staff were really helpful, and all my little queries were sorted out really quickly, and with a smile!


The Bristol Pavilion absolutely smashed it! We were so pleased with the day. The spaces worked out great, our delegates were remarking on what a great place it was to have the conference.

The team were absolutely brilliant, on hand offering help every step of the way. We were very impressed indeed!


Tina, I wanted to drop you a line to thank you and the team at the Bristol Pavilion for a very successful evening and for the support you gave Zoe. The room layout was excellent, a great service team who were very attentive and friendly and this included the bar staff.  Also the food was excellent and of a very high standard.


Hi Marc, Hope you have had a good weekend. Alex, I and the rest of Brightside would like to say a massive thank you to you and your team for helping us to organise such a brilliant party. Everyone had a fantastic time and the feedback so far has been very positive, the food was fantastic so please pass our thanks onto the chef

Private Party

Marc, I think Saturday was a great success due in no small part to you and your excellent team. If you could pass on our thanks, especially to Ian and Damien who worked so hard on the night pulling it all together. The waiting staff was really good and there were very many sore heads on Sunday morning. Can you also make sure to thank you security guard for helping me and two very drunk ladies get all the presents into the car. Above and beyond the call of duty.

Old Bristolians Rugby Club 

It was a truly exceptional night thank you. I’ve had so many lovely emails with thank you’s and compliments - a lot of that praise is very much due to your team. They were exceptional on set-up and the night itself - nothing was too much hassle. The room looked awesome, the food was exceptional and the service was impeccable. Please pass on my thanks to the team as I didn’t get chance to see them before we left.

Thanks for all your support in the set up too Marc - we’ll be back next year for sure and we’re just waiting for the next years six nations dates to be released before we book the date

Lawn Tennis Association

Hi Tina, Thanks very much to all your team for yesterday.

All the best, Lisa Brennan Regional Tennis Services Assistant

The room looked really excellent with the uplighters; everyone was very impressed. The food and the service was also really good. A great team effort.

Jess, Tom and I also appreciated your "can-do" attitude in helping us with the small details which made the difference.

People are already talking about next year....!

Thank you for being such a brilliant person to work with along the way. We're delighted that all of our guests got to experience what a wonderful venue The Bristol Pavilion is, and see how great the staff are.

Many of our guests said how impressive they think Michelle is. She was all over it. You make an outstanding team! Thanks again for a brilliant day, and I hope word spreads that you have the best wedding venue in Bristol!

We had a fantastic day. Thanks for all your thoughtful care of us and our guests on the day. We can't get over how brilliant it was, thanks to you and your amazing team. 

Charity Ball

Dear Marc, Just a note of thanks for all your support with the ball. Thinks went very well on the evening and everyone really enjoyed it. We raised about £1300 which is more than expected given our numbers and financial position 1 week beforehand. I would definitely recommend your services and the venue to others.

Henbury Golf Club Anniversary Dinner

Morning Tina, Just a note to say thank you for all your help in the run up to our event.  It could not have gone better, everything from arrival to finish was fabulous, I had lots of great comments on the night about the venue, food etc and lots of emails this morning, so you and the team have made my life a little easier this week.  I did speak to the Chef this morning and thanked him for the lovely food it was excellent.

Thanks again for a great event.  

Kind regards Sue Elliott Managing Secretary Henbury Golf Club


Hi Marc All is well thanks.  The staff conference was a success, so relief today!

When I attended the AfP planning day I was impressed with the venue, rooms and food.  I’ll ask the other teams for feedback and will come back to you if that’s ok.

As discussed, I’ll certainly bear the Pavilion in mind for any future events or meetings.

Regards Mandy Morgan | Corporate Resource Admin Team

The WG Grace Centenary Dinner

Centerplate staff have been absolutely fantastic in helping us to plan the event and then on the night itself. Nothing has ever been too much trouble for any of you and you have stepped in with a helping hand on several occasions - even this morning when we were taking down the display boards.

The food was superb, the service went smoothly and the way you took care of guests was great. We just cannot speak too highly of you and everything you have done to make the evening the success it was. You are all a huge asset to your company and to this Club.

We are so grateful to you all and send you our thanks and very best wishes
