This HUGE THANK YOU comes from the whole family, as they say, you did us proud….The room was lovely and warm, on a cold day it was greatly appreciated .The chairs and tables beautifully decorated.
The food, again, wonderful, the children really loved the chips and the hot chocolate was a treat.
The staff were excellent, they were on hand ready to bring extra food if needed, checking we were okay through the day, very polite, and hopefully we left the room in a fairly tidy state.
My mum was thrilled with her day, she loves Monkey World, watches it on tv, all the repeats!!
We managed to keep it a surprise which was lovely to see when we entered the room.
So, please thank the staff from us, we all had a fantastic day, and thank you once again.

I just want to say Thank You for allowing my family to use the meeting room to celebrate my 50th and my mum's 80th Birthdays on Sun 8th Nov.
The room and buffet were excellent and all the staff we encountered were approachable, friendly and helpful. They are a credit to your company.
We will recommend the room for venue for future events.

“Can I take this opportunity to say thank you very much to both yourself and the staff of Monkey World.  

The service that was provided was excellent and we could not fault the hospitality we received, nothing was to much trouble.  Please also pass our thanks on to the catering staff as there was choice enough for all and again it was excellent.

I appreciate you went above and beyond to meet our requests but the venue, service and catering all topped off a very successful day.”

"I just wanted to say a great big Thank You to all for Saturday!! Debbie had, in her words, "the best birthday ever"!

From the moment I called to inquire about a party to the time we left you have all been brilliant. We will most definitely be suggesting the venue to friends and, may in fact, try to arrange a summer party for friends in 2014. The tour of the park may have been wet and windy but Steve was great and we all now are so much more knowledgeable. What you all do is inspiring. Picture before venturing out attached.

Thanks again and we all hope you have a superb Christmas and New Year!"

"Just wanted to say a big thanks for the arrangements today. We are a conference venue as well and know how thankless it can be sometimes!

The venue was great, food great and overall experience very impressive. From my point of view the arrangements were very easily sorted and I thought you were very helpful. 
So, in all a great day and I just wanted to thank you and everyone there for looking after us so wonderfully.

Many thanks and best wishes,"

"Just a quick note on behalf of all of us at Coleman to thank you and your staff for a fantastic day at Monkey World on Saturday.

The feedback I have had from staff and Directors alike has been brilliant, everyone had a really enjoyable time and can't speak highly enough of the organisation, venue, catering and how helpful your staff were.

The food was delicious and just right for a sunny Saturday afternoon and the supply of drinks during the day was a godsend in the heat.

I have to say personally, my wife and I had a really enjoyable time looking around the park and we were particularly taken with Gordon, what a character!

Thank you both again for your time and diligence in pullling this together, a fantastic job and very much appreciated by everyone at Coleman."
