A flexible, flat floored room, with sliding dividing doors, the Hartley Suite is available for groups of up to 80 people.

The main Hartley Room is fitted with data projector and screen and is where we would recommend your meeting would take place. The Hartley Lounge, is a more informal space furnished with sofas and low tables which works well as an informal breakout space but is typically used as a catering area. With views overlooking the landscaped gardens, it is an ideal space for informal networking and registration.

If you wish to extend your meeting later in the day the Hartley Suite also offers a private bar which can be opened by prior arrangement.

The Hartley Suite can be used on its own or in conjunction with the adjacent Garden Court which can be accessed directly from the Hartley Suite.
