Testimonials

" I just wanted to say thank you for the help and support BP received from your team at Westpoint last week. Everyone was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The menu was very good each day and arrived on time for each break we had. The facilities were again exceptional. Many thanks for all you did to support our training. "
Dawn Mardell – BP Oil UK Ltd
" The Devon Association of Local Councils has used Westpoint Conference Centre for its annual AGM and Conference for the last two years. We believe this to be an excellent facility. It is easily accessible for a County wide event with a great amount of parking (which is hard to find at venues in and around Exeter!). We have always received a fantastic service, the staff are friendly and helpful – nothing is ever too much trouble – and the onsite PA support really puts your mind at ease leaving you to focus on the event itself. The catering this year had really stepped up a gear and our delegates were very pleased. We will be back again next year! "
Cara Stobart, Local Councils Officer, Devon Association of Local Councils
" Westpoint Arena and Conference Centre provided us with the flexibility and space to push the boundaries of our team building event for 350 employees. The team were fabulous and were on hand to offer their expertise when needed. The catering by Posh Nosh received the best feedback we've had in 4 years of using local venues - we will definitely use Westpoint again. "
Bonnie Banks - Internal Communications, EDF Energy
" Thanks for looking after us so well. You and your team have been so helpful and supportive from the beginning - your quick responses right at the start of our discussion really helped with the planning of your event. We kept approx. 110 Devon business owners engaged and inspired today at your venue - I'm so grateful for all your help. The room looked great and the catering was spot on. The service was seamless and everyone was so friendly. Highly recommended. "
Julia Bramble and Sean Humby - Business Network
" Thank you for looking after us so well at Westpoint yesterday. The service that we received was superb in every way and we were most impressed. The room was excellent; clean; tidy and beautifully set up all ready for us. You were on-hand first thing with direction signs that were very helpful for our arriving delegates, the groundsman was quick to respond to my request to have the heating on and the food was excellent. People are very quick to complain but much slower to offer praise where it is due or to simply say "thank you" so, well done and thank you. "
Tricia Nassau-Williams - British Equestrian Trade Association
" I just want to say a huge thank you for organising the event for us today, we had a really successful day and everyone very much enjoyed themselves. I would also like to extend our thanks to the extremely helpful and professional lady you had helping us with the catering. She was incredibly good and a real joy to have supporting us on this busy day. We very rarely have such good service, thanks again to all. "
