Review of meeting venue - Peppers The Sands Torquay

We recently took a group of 80 pax to Peppers The Sands Torquay. As the hotel only has 102 accommodation rooms, the hotel was perfect to have exclusively for our delegates for two days and two nights. The accommodation rooms include 2 disabled rooms and 14 suites with the balance in standard accommodation rooms, all with external views and balconies. The conference room splits into three, but we chose to use two thirds for the plenary meeting, splitting it into two separate spaces for breakout sessions between morning tea and lunch, and then have the final third for breaks. If you have a larger number of delegates, there is ample room to host breaks in the existing pre-function space and terrace areas. The restaurant is a simple contemporary space perfect for a welcome function and the golf course, spa and gym are perfect for after conference hours activities. If any event manager is looking for a regional conference venueless than 2 hours out of Melbourne, I would highly recommend Peppers The Sands Torquay not only for its facilities, but also for its outstanding service. The pre-event contacts and onsite contacts are far above what any one would expect in a 4 1/2 star regional property! Very friendly, flexible and efficient.
