Hopefully we will be in a position to do it all again this year?! Well done for your work on this, I could not fault anything and all the planning was well worth while, the evening was amazing. Please pass on my thanks to all staff involved.

Kind regards

I just wanted to send a quick email following on from our Christmas lunch which we had with yourselves on Monday. The setting was beautiful and the meal delicious so we would like to send our thanks to all the staff, especially the chef and the waiting-on staff who offered just the right level of attentiveness. The only issue was that we all got stuck trying to get home however the snow looked beautiful while we were sat in the Morning Room.

All my colleagues thoroughly enjoyed themselves and I have been told that I will have to go a long way to better it for next Christmas!!

Once again thank you and merry Christmas to you all.

Kind regards

Hi Carrie

Happy New Year and just a note to say we enjoyed the evening very much.

Kind regards,

I just thought I'd drop a line for you to forward to the manager of the Elvetham please.

The new years eve ball we attended was just the most superb night. The whole evening was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Plenty of champagne on arrival and canapés. The dinner was excellent, the service could not have been better. The waitering staff were extremely pleasant and well briefed. The music was really good. In fact I could not fault anything about the evening what so ever. Another truly fabulous event I have attended at the Elvetham.

Just as a matter of interest, I very recently attended a very expensive function at another hotel - You knock spots of them!!

Many, many thanks for providing a spectacular evening for us all to remember.

Happy new year and all the best for 2011

HI Carrie

I think we are all interested in booking again for next year, so please can you let me know when you will start taking bookings.

Thanks and best regards

Hi Carrie,

Happy New Year! Thank you so much for your mail.

I have to tell you that we had a GREAT time at New Year! It was our second party at the Elvetham over Christmas and it really did not disappoint on ANY level. The hotel and party room looked really lovely, staff were suberb, food and wine were great, and arriving with bacon rolls after midnight was a lifesaver! You even managed – very cleverly – to put us on a table together with a perfectly lovely group of people!

Please do thank everyone VERY much on our behalf.

All the best,
Julie Matthews

Just wanted to say ‘well done and congratulations’ for an excellent New Year’s event. We all had a wonderful evening and I will be writing in so you have a nice letter on file. It was so lovely not to have to drive home afterwards and we all thoroughly enjoyed having breakfast together to round the perfect evening off.

Mrs Hayes

Please pass on our regards to everyone involved in the New Year’s Eve event, especially Nick and Lauren on the night. We had a wonderful time, as did our whole group. This was in no small part down to your and the staff’s efforts to cater for our requests – all of which were handled perfectly.

Thanks again.

Surrey TVR Car Club

I just wanted to let you know how successful New Year's Eve was as far as the TVR Car Club was concerned. The universal opinion was that it was the best New Year's Eve party anyone had been to!

We really did appreciate all the hard work you put into the making sure that everything went smoothly and it certainly paid off. Everyone was really touched by the TVR logos on the table and the staff on duty on the night really rose the occasion and looked after us superbly. I know how much effort you put into ensuring that we had sorted out all our wines and special dietary requirements in advance and that was much appreciated by everyone on the night. Everyone also remarked on how good the food was which when you are catering for so many people at once, was certainly not easy.

I have written to Michelle to say that I am pretty sure we will be looking to come again next year and to keep me informed as to when we need to start making reservations. It was such a great evening we’re not sure how you can better it again next year!

Thank you again for all your hard work and every good wish for 2010 from all of us at the TVR Car Club!


I just wanted to let you know that New Year’s Eve was a total and complete success and everybody said it was the very best New Year’s Eve Party they had been to! When you take a large party to an event, there is usually somebody who finds something to have a niggle about but I can honestly say that there has not be one negative comment at all. The service was superb and the music was brilliant and whole evening ran like clockwork. Another comment was how good the food was which considering you were serving 300 plus, this was most impressive. The fact too that you were able to cater for some of our stranger dietary requests was also greatly appreciated.

Please pass our grateful thanks to all those involved in making it such a great way to bid farewell to 2009 and welcome 2010. I shall write to Carrie separately but she certainly did everything possible to ensure that all our arrangements were in place in good time and that everything went smoothly.

With 2010/2011 in mind, I think it is very likely that the TVR Club will want to come again next year (though how you could top this year’s event, heaven knows!). Please let me know when I need to start making reservations.

With every good wish for a happy and successful 2010.
