Hospitallity

Post by sada8022 » Mon Jan 09, 2017 9:00 am

I booked the hospitality package on Sat for my friends Birthday and have to say how well we were looked after, food was great , staff couldn't do enough for you and you get to watch the game from the royal balcony. I would defiantly recommend this if you want to treat someone.

Good to hear such positive news Joanne Cameron and her team do an excellent job, and of course so do the Rugby club staff led by Lisa

Why would he mind you asking about information that is readily available to the public?

We will be playing at the arena again next season - fact.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

They may not want this person to know how much they paid? I was just trying to be polite.

Fantastic value - if only I could find a reasonable train fare from Kings Cross.

Good point - didn't factor that part of the journey in.

Drive up it is then :cry:

Can you still book hospitality for only two people?

Just booked this for when im off work next month for the harrogate game really looking forward to it and a very good price. Do you actually watch the game from the balcony or is it just pitch side

I would love to do this for me and my wife , but she is disabled and it doesn't say on the website whether you get a seat on the balcony to watch the match.

The choice is yours. Most people watch from the balcony but you can go out if you want to.

There's a lift up to hospitality and I will ask on Saturday if you can take a seat outside. You get onto the balcony through a sliding door. Hope that helps.

Where can you buy golf bats? I was useless when I tried it with those club things.

Only done the hospitality at HP but cant wait to try BM.

£35 really is excellent value when you take into consideration what you get,would think this will sell out most games.

We booked a hospitality package for two at the Gloucester match and were very well looked after.

My mate is disabled and has difficulty walking - it would have been a real struggle for him to walk to a pre-arranged disabled seat on the other side of the ground.

We were able to take a seat from the dining area and watch from the balcony without any difficulty.

Have booked again for next Saturday vs. Curzon Ashton.

I think its a great idea and value, at that price i can see it selling out most home games specially after the good feedback

That sounds good. Her birthday is coming up in March so might give them a ring and sort something out. Cheers folks.

Does the hospitality also happen on night matches ?
