"Thank you for providing the perfect venue for our winter staff AwayDay. The Conference Room was an ideal space for our training and learning exchanges - bright, comfortable and with plenty of space for us to break out into smaller groups. The additional Meeting Room and your beautiful cafe were also great spaces for further break outs and reflection spaces. Everyone enjoyed the lunches and the touches of bara brith, Welsh cakes and use of Welsh products was appreciated. 
Thank you too for going 'above and beyond' responding to last minute requests and changes to our schedule. Nothing was too much trouble - providing an extra flip chart, an extra data projector, a space for an unexpected online interview with a client - even agreeing to stand in to take a photograph of us all! You helped make our AwayDay a great success and provided the warmest of Welsh welcomes in the wonderful setting of Yr Hen Lyfrgell."
