what our customers say

J.White (Visitor Manager), Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead
"I can’t fault the team at Ascot. Nothing is ever too much trouble and everyone is a delight to work with!  The event ran smoothly from start to finish, the two rooms worked perfectly for us and the food was fabulous as always. I know our partners always enjoy coming to the racecourse for our annual event because the setting is perfect and it’s so convenient for everyone. I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it as a meeting and event space."
A. Taylor (Airside Operations), Heathrow Airport
"I wanted to say a very big thank you for your organisation of our team away day which was a huge success. Please pass on our thanks to the staff who looked after us extremely well. The food was amazing and our gluten free guest had a huge feast. She said her desserts were “to die for”. The team thought the venue was great and we hope to come back to see you all again."
