Aubrey Park Hotel, an independent hotel in Hertfordshire and a HotelREZ member, has opened the doors to ‘The Oak Suite’, a brand new conference and events venue, following a £2 million pound investment. Tara Brady, Sales Manager at Aubrey Park Hotel, is happy to see the new venue complete, as she explains:
‘We’re excited to be opening ‘The Oak Suite’, which can host up to 200 delegates. Its multi-purpose design allows all manner of events such as seminars, business meetings and training to name just a few.’
Facilities include a built-in PA system, wireless LCD projector, skyline views, feature lighting, 3-metre built-in screen, private bar among others. ‘The Oak Suite’ also features a brand new, fully landscaped outdoor terrace for a spot of alfresco dining.
The venue’s design draws on the history of Aubrey Park’s original architecture dating back over 150 years, when it was owned by the Dunn family: founders of the renowned hat-makers. As they say ‘out with the old, and in with the new’ Aubrey Park have said goodbye to their beloved marquee that has been the location for hundreds of weddings, parties and events for 13 years.
David Timmis, Managing Director, explains:
‘The marquee holds memories for so many within the local community and it is very sad to see it leave us after all these years. Yet we’re thrilled to see the positive impact ‘The Oak Suite’ has made on the hotel already.’
The new development will enhance the independent hotel’s facilities and complement its existing 137 bedrooms, Brasserie restaurant and Bar & Lounge as well as the existing meeting rooms.
‘The Oak Suite’ will increase the hotel’s ability to serve the community with better facilities for weddings and other celebrations. It also offers improved employment prospects for local residents and trading prospects for local suppliers of goods and services.
The new venue is now fully open and ready for bookings.
