Testimonials

Read what some of our lovely customers had to say about events at Kirkley Hall. 

 

Dear All,

On behalf of the Volunteer Programme Team I wanted to thank you personally for all your support in helping us have a hugely successful event last Tuesday, expecially as it was our first time bringing the British Airways & BT Community Games Day 2016 to Newcastle.

Please especially pass on my gratitude to Alexandria who was incredibly helpful overseeing our event and also the catering staff as nothing was too big or too small for them to manage.

A fantastic time was definitely had by all, especially the 200 children that turned up on mass - just wonderful.

Everything went like clockwork and your team of staff were incredibly helpful, friendly and supportive.

We look forward to booking again for next year. I will be in touch shortly to confirm dates.

Kirkley Hall is such a special venue.

Thank you all once again for a wonderful event.

Kind regards

Hi Jenny,

Just a quick note to thank all of you at Kirkley Hall for a lovely afternoon yesterday. All the residents enjoyed themselves without exception. They all enthused over how attentive and polite the staff were and how tasty the food was!

A very merry Christmas to you all and hope to see again in the New Year.

Best Wishes,

Hi, 


I would just like to say a massive thank you for Sunday. The Santa experience was outstanding and much better than the usual grotto visit most places offer. My little boy is quite shy but sat and talked with Santa easily on Sunday. It was nice to feel like more than a child in a line to get through. The food as usual was lovely.

Best wishes,

I have just had a very enjoyable Christmas lunch today with my wallington colleagues. The small room with the two tables was ideal private and relaxing just what we needed. Everyone had a good time. The service was good and timings perfect.

Thankyou.

We would like to express our thanks and say what a pleasure it was to have our party at Kirkley Hall on Saturday. The setting, music, food and staff were faultless and our guests went home buzzing and smiling after a memorable night. We would particularly like to say thank you to Jenny who has been a delight to deal with during the planning of the event.

Best wishes,

Dear Jenny,

The Friends of Marie Curie Newcastle held a Gardeners Question time fund raising evening at Kirkley Hall for over 70 people.

It was a most successful occasion and the assistance given from the outset together with attention to detail by the events team from Kirkley Hall was excellent. Nothing was a problem and the meal and service were splendid.
We look forward to using the venue again for other events in the future.

On a personal basis can I thank you and your team for your help and assistance which was greatly appreciated as was your kind support.
We had a most successful and enjoyable evening. The food was excellent, the service pleasant and efficient with a smile at all times.
Thank you again - we hope to return again for future events.

Kind regards

Thank you so much Jenny for your advice and for making the party-planning such a breeze.

My Mother was overwhelmed by her surprise party and all her family and friends had a fantastic time. The staff were absolutely great, food was delicious and commented on by all the guests - even the sun shone! which allowed everyone to take full advantage of the beautiful terrace and gardens. The room looked gorgeous, Lydia and the girls took care of everyone and made us feel at home from the start, they ensured the afternoon celebrations flowed seamlessly.

I'm now trying to think of an excuse for another party so we can do it all over again! I would have no reservations in recommending Kirkley Hall to anyone thinking about hosting a special event. The lovely venue, great quality buffet and caring service made a truly unforgettable day which we will always treasure.

Thanks again

Hello

Just had to say that my 5 year old daughter had a great time at the Mad Hatters Tea Party today. It was great fun and my daughter loved the Mad Hatter, saying how zany he was and she was very impressed. So a very big thank you.

Kind Regards

Hello Natalie

I am just writing to express our sincere thanks to you, and Paul for making our group of 25 so welcome on Thursday last. Everyone seemed to enjoy the afternoon, including those who just sat and talked as well as those of us who toured some of the garden with Paul. The weather was a bonus. Several of us discovered parts of Kirkley Hall that we did not know existed and we will certainly be back later in the year as individuals if not as a group. I think the group may well come again next year - perhaps in June for the rhododendrons and azaleas. 

Anyway thanks for making the first of our Regent Seniors group outings such a success.

Dear Jenny,

Just wanted to thank you for a perfect venue last week at the Northumberland Food & Drink event.

The location and premises were perfect and staff extremely helpful.  

I chose Kirkley as a venue because of its central location in Northumberland, easy to signpost and has plenty of parking.

The equipment was already set up when I arrived, staff were on hand to assist if required and the service overall was excellent.

Kind regards

Dear Jenny and staff,

A huge thank you for arranging my 60th birthday party on 30th December. it was a fantastic night. The hall looked beautiful and the mulled wine and hog roast were perfect for the occasion. The staff on duty were so helpful and wlcoming to all the guests.

Thank you again for making it a memorable night for everyone.

Hi Jenny

We just wanted to thank you so much for yet again another fantastic weekend at Kirkley Hall Christmas Market.

Please can you pass on our best wishes to all involved in what has turned out to be a fantastic weekend.

We have received loads of feedback from friends and family who visited saying that it was so well organised and professional and that can only be down to the hard work from you and the team.

We love being part of Kirkley Hall.

Without organisers like you taking the time to put together these events our business would not be as successful as it is.

Thank you so much xxxxx

Best wishes

On behalf of all our team can we just say a massive thank you to you all for our day on Saturday. Everyone really enjoyed it, it was very challenging and many have really excelled themselves in what they said was “impossible”. The food was fab, the meal in the evening was just amazing hats off to you all for looking after us so well cause we are not an easy bunch.

Thank you once again

We used Kirkley Hall to run a residential week for young people in Northumberland completing the National Citizen Service. From the planning stages Kirkley hall made us feel welcome and worked with us to ensure a seamless and successful, fun week for the participants. We made use of a number of different spaces from the hall itself to the student bar, which were all fit for the purpose of the week. Staff were friendly and helpful throughout our stay and ensured that we had everything we needed to run numerous workshops.

Kirkley Hall is an amazing and beautiful venue and we hope to use it again.

On Sunday 27th July my wife and I together with two friends enjoyed lunch at Kirkley Hall College celebrating my wife's 80th birthday (22nd July).

The meal was excellent and the service provided by the helpful staff could not be faulted.

Please pass on our thanks to all concerned, we look forward to our next visit.

 Dear Jenny,

Girlguiding Northumberland would like to express their sincere thanks and appreciation for the help and assistance given by everyone at Kirkley Hall before and during their recent Big Brownie Birthday celebration and sleepover.

The venue is ideal for any activity involving children.
The Zoo in particular provided an extra bonus to the event programme.
The provision of meals by Kirkley Hall helped to make the event more enjoyable for the girls, their Leaders and the planning team.

Together with our planned activities and the help given by the Kirkley Hall staff, we would not hesitate to recommend this venue to any other youth organisation.

Thank you very much Kirkley Hall.
