What our clients say

We had a great day all around. The delegates were impressed with the venue. The food was superb. The IT equipment worked well without any problems. The room had good acoustics. The staff were very friendly and efficient. I would recommend this conference centre for any meeting.
– Dr Farrugia, Institute of Neurological Sciences, Southern General Hospital

I have recently helped to organise a one-day workshop held at the William Quarrier Conference Centre and would like to commend the staff on their friendly, highly professional service. Being based in York, I was apprehensive about the practicalities of pulling off an event at a venue I had never seen and would not be able to visit in order to make any of the arrangements directly myself. Moreover, I was coordinating contributors from afar (including New Zealand!) which made the planning that bit more complicated. I was exceptionally grateful to the Centre for their flexibility and high level of support – both before and during the event. Heather Thomson, in particular, helped ensure that everything ran smoothly and that participants enjoyed a good range of food, great coffee and a very pleasant venue on the day. I would definitely recommend this as a conference/workshop venue.”
– Dr Merran Toerien, Lecturer in Sociology, The University of York

The WQCC offers an excellent range of facilities at affordable rates and has a real dedication to pro-active customer service and engagement. The NHS Credit Union is delighted with the on-going relationship and service provided
– Robert Kelly, NHS Credit Union Ltd

William Quarrier Conference Centre is an excellent venue. From booking through to the event itself, the staff are friendly, helpful and go out of their way to make you feel welcome, nothing is too much trouble for the staff, some of whom are volunteers
– Lisa Donnelly, NHS GGC
