The Clare Conferencing team have received some excellent feedback from both organisers and delegates. We are very proud of these accolades and we have made sure that where positive change can be made, it has been.


Receiving your feedback is extremely important for us to improve our facilities and services so we can ensure you can hold outstanding and memorable conferences and events. Many of our clients have been coming to Clare College for years. Here’s what some of them say:

I must say what a lovely evening was had by all. The Garden Room looked very elegant, extremely pretty and very welcoming; with its huge Christmas tree. Everyone had a lovely time. Please also pass on compliments and hug thanks to the Chef(s) and everyone involved with the preparation of the food. The food was delicious and the wines were just right, so thank you to you all – your efforts were much appreciated. Elizabeth Chatters, Department of Paediatrics, 8 December 2016
The catering for the formal dinner in the Hall was excellent and of a fine dining standard. The cost of this meal was extremely good value. In addition, the bowl food for the working lunches was varied and tasty, and bowl serving worked well as it allowed delegates to move around at lunch and socialise. Amy Light, Institute of Physics, 12-14 September 2016

We were all made to feel most welcome and everyone involved was extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with. The catering team could not have been more kind and accommodating, delivering an excellent service throughout the day. The food looked wonderful and was greatly appreciated for being so fresh and delicious.  All our guests from students to VIPs were most appreciative. Lucy Salisbury, Roche Court Educational Trust, 1 March 2014

The support service team were great – very helpful and gave us their contact numbers so were easily accessible when we needed them. Liz Mowlem Addenbrookes Hospital, 9-10 Jan 2014

“We noticed immediately that we can hand over responsibility to your team, which gave us more flexibility and time for other things. We enjoyed the silence in the building and the nice garden outside for our breaks. We would warmly like to thank Clare College Gillespie Centre team for their great support. We felt very welcome and enjoyed our stay. All was so well organised and the venue was perfectly equipped and clean. No suggestions for improvement can be given.” Museum fur Naturkunde, June 2015

“We were delighted by our week at Clare College. The facilities were excellent and the staff, in particular, were superbly efficient and helpful. Dinners in hall were the highlight.” Bridget Orr, The Civic Trust

Thank you very much to you and the catering team for the excellent service we received at the reception last Sunday night. The food was delicious and everyone very much enjoyed themselves. Please also pass our thanks to the waiting team that night – they were extremely professional and helpful. Department of Engineering, July 2013

“Please pass on our thanks to the team at Clare for their help, support and professionalism over the years in helping us to organise and successfully deliver our eight conferences. There is little doubt that these played a significant part in establishing the market leading reputation of the risk engineering team at Mitsui.” Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance, July 2013

“Overall a very enjoyable experience made possible by a strong team of Porters, Support Services as well as Conferencing and Management.” Bucksmore, 2015

“It was clear from the members’ reactions at the time and afterwards, that being able to stay in Clare and to experience something of what the College has to offer, was a unique opportunity, very much valued and enjoyed by all who came.” Michael McCulloch, Bishopsgate Ward Club 2012

“The whole staff team we encountered were very accommodating to our group and this was consistent throughout our stay – thank you! Summer Boarding Courses, 2015
