Thank you so much for a wonderful evening – everyone really enjoyed it – I’ve had so much positive feedback. It’s the first time I’ve organised anything so big and it went so smoothly – which is full credit to you and your staff. And the weather held! Thank you again for all the extra help you gave us – including use of the room downstairs, transportation, help with music at the venue and setting up of the lawn games. I look forward to working with you again in the future

We recently held our team Away Day at the Mess Deck in the Chatham Historic Dockyard. The venue was perfect for a team building event, relaxed and something a little bit different! We had a really brilliant day in a truly historic setting. Chloe and the team were really helpful from the start of the booking process all the way through to making sure we were looked after on the day. If you are looking for somewhere unique to host your corporate event, I can highly recommend the Historic Dockyard.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for helping with the arrangements for our Away day yesterday. We had a fantastic day; we were very well fed and watered in wonderful surroundings – everyone (me included) wants to come back and spend the day looking around!

I am sure you will receive feedback through the formal channels however, a note to say how much the Savills team enjoyed their visit to the Dockyard last Thursday. Thankfully the weather was on our side which meant we were able to enjoy exploring the Dockyard in the sunshine during our free time in the afternoon before the bbq back at Commissioners House. A number from our Haywards Heath and Petworth offices had never ventured to Medway before and I am pleased to say they were all pleasantly surprised and impressed by the Dockyard. Please convey thanks to all those in your staff team who were involved.

Savills UK

The team on the day were very helpful and attentive which enabled the event to run very smoothly. The venue was perfect and we will definitely be in touch in future and would recommend to others looking to hold an event in the area.

Just a few lines to thank you and all the staff at Commissioners House for all the help and support we received yesterday. Everything was smooth running, exactly as I wanted, and nothing was too much trouble - all done with a willing smile.
