Phyllis Court Members Club achieves Venues of Excellence accreditation
Phyllis Court Members Club, an Oxfordshire historic mansion, has been announced as the latest location to achieve the Venue of Excellence accreditation.
The private members club is located on the River Thames in Henley and includes 18 acres of land, five function rooms, a fitness centre, restaurants and 17 riverside bedrooms.
The club is available for weddings, meetings and special occasions and also hosts the Henley Royal Regatta week, an annual rowing event on the River Thames.
It achieved the accreditation by meeting the standards set for its facilities, staff, service offer, catering, environmental impact, customer support and health, hygiene and safety.
Members of the club can also access services including sales and marketing support, discounted access to specialist industry training from the Learning and Development Academy, 12 member events, an annual conference and promotion at industry exhibitions.
Caroline O’Connor, head of sales and marketing at Phyllis Court Members Club, said: "We are thrilled to have officially become a member of Venues of Excellence. It presents fantastic training opportunities and chances to share industry knowledge and transfer business with other venues.
“At Phyllis Court Club we pride ourselves on delivering top quality corporate events and we have already benefited from the close working relationship afforded to us though our membership.”
Mandy Jennings, executive director at Venues of Excellence, said: “We’re incredibly proud to welcome Phyllis Court Members Club to Venues of Excellence, a venue that combines its historic roots with modern elegance.
“The fact that visitors can benefit from great transport links and do not need a membership to host events at Phyllis Court, makes it a very versatile location for special occasions, leisure trips, meetings and more. Situated in one of the finest riverside settings in south Oxfordshire, we’re delighted that the club will offer something different to our membership.”
