The staff from the hotel were really attentive and the food was lovely. The actors were great, very entertaining and managed to encourage everyone to join in. I would defiantly recommend both the venue and murder mystery events." - Olivia Post, Samsung @ Sherlock Holmes Hotel "Well, what can I say other than a big THANK YOU to you & your fellow thespians. The feedback that I have had so far seems to be very positive & they all seemed to enjoy [the event]. It can usually be quite difficult in keeping everyone’s attention for any length of time, especially as we have quite a few youngsters who would normally prefer to go clubbing & some who can be very critical about what their Xmas Do should be like, but I think what clinched it this time was because it was so interactive..." - Nikki Nicholson, Footman Walker “Just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you for a great Christmas party on Friday nite.
