Testimonials

We’re delighted to have hosted many events at the Emirates Spinnaker Tower and love to receive feedback from our guests. Here’s what some of them have to say:

Rebecca, you were so accommodating before and during our meeting. I was so impressed with everything, thank you so much. I know the rest of the team had a brilliant time and the setting inspired us to be extremely productive.

Fantastic value for money to have use of that room for the entire day, as well as the amazing pastries and afternoon tea – it was really nice food, I would certainly recommend to others.

I wanted to give a special mention to the gentlemen who brought us the afternoon tea. We also loved being able to try the glass floor!

It was a great day, we all loved it. Thanks again.

Lottie – Britax, July 2018

It was a real privilege to get married at such an iconic landmark in our hometown! From the offset the organisation was superb – James the event manager was outstanding and he made us feel at ease. Nothing was too much trouble, everyone worked extremely hard in the background while we had the most amazing time! The dedicated Hospitality team were outstanding, so thank you all for making our day so remarkably special! Our food was supplied by Vanilla Catering who were also outstanding on the day with so many positive reviews of how amazing it was.

Our wedding was perfect and it was all a credit to the team at Emirates Spinnaker Tower. Thank you James and team for making this happen you are an inspiration to all.

A huge thank you to everyone who was involved .From our point of view everything went very smoothly as usual – both Rebecca throughout the booking process and her staff on the day were very helpful and professional. A special thank you once again to James and his colleague for arranging the room and providing the drinks and delicious brownies.

The feedback so far from some of the volunteers was how much they enjoyed the event and how having it in such a prestigious venue made them feel special.

A big thank you to you Rebecca for your assistance in planning what was a fantastic evening. The company thoroughly enjoyed the party and it was seen as a huge success. James and the team on the night were fantastic. They went above and beyond to help Felicity and I get everything ready and to make sure we were happy with everything. I’d be confident to recommend the venue and its staff to anyone wanting to host an event in the area. Thank you ever so much for all your help Rebecca and for your patience with our many, many, emails!

I have nothing but praise for the entire process from booking and planning the event to the execution. The staff on hand were extremely friendly and helpful on the night itself and the guests that attended all had an excellent evening. I want to thank you all for your part in making this event a success!

Malcolm – The University of Portsmouth May 2018

 

The event went extremely well and as far as I know everyone had a lovely evening, also helped with the sunny weather and great view! The organising of the event with Rebecca was easy and her and the team before the event were always helpful. The team on the night were also helpful with questions and setting up the presentation on the screen. All in all it was pain free to organise and a success on the night so thank you.

Myself and everyone had a really good night on Saturday. The venue was great, the staff were great, the food was great. Thank you Rebecca.

Chris Rutledge – Birthday Party April 2018

 

Suzie and I couldn’t have asked for a more magical venue for our wedding. James and his team have to be the best in the business. The organisation, communication and ‘nothing is too much trouble’ attitude made our wedding day absolutely first class. I thought it would be hard to compete with the beauty of the tower itself. But James’ team along with the companies we used for catering, decorating and photography were second to none. Getting married at the Spinnaker Tower is a no brainer, not only because of the venue but the outstanding service from James and his team which make the day stress free.

-Richard & Suzie – Wedding April 2018 

 

Just to say thank you for organising my birthday party, we all had a great time! I would also like to thank all the lovely staff that were working that made it extra special.

I just wanted to thank you and your team for making our society event so memorable. Your teams organisation and kindness were greatly appreciated and everyone had a fab time! It was great not to worry about the small details as your team had it covered!It was a great night loved by all and as we were lucky with the weather it was great to see the IOW, Portsmouth and Gosport in the dark as public don’t normally get a chance to see this so felt honoured.

We had a very enjoyable evening at the Spinnaker, beautiful weather so the views were good. The food and service were also very good. We were hosting top tier partners and it was an impressive way to round off the day.

The event went very well, from initial discussions with Jenny and James through to the smooth and flexible set up. Food and drink were timely on the morning, as we’re the lifts for everyone upstairs in time for our live Facebook video on the Royal Navy website and the helicopter fly past. Payment went smoothly afterwards too!

– G A R Nolan, Sub Lieutenant Royal Navy Reserve, HMS KING ALFRED

 

We would like to sincerely thank you both and your team at the Spinnaker Tower for an amazing day. We all had a brilliant time, everything ran smoothly and was incredibly well organised (and stress free from our perspective!).
