Beautiful, spacious venue. Neutrally decorated, clean. Fast wifi- password readily available. Wifi speakers- loud, efficient. Friendly hosts- Julie Wedge was amazing! Helpful, professional, communicated well. Remained on site throughout. Greeted guests- ensured all necessary Covid precautions were met. Helped with cleaning! Very lovely women.
Slightly difficult location to find, hidden. Access code necessary for parking. Very small kitchen facilities- no utensil. Microwave was removed mid party?
The staff was so helpful and kind to my guest. Planning the Event with Julie, was like I was planning it with a member of the family. They made sure they facilitated our needs. A great team
My husband and I recently held our wedding reception at the Boathouse Creative Studios and couldn't recommend them more highly. Julie and Carole went above and beyond all of our expectations and requests. From continuously arranging extra time for us to stay and decorate, sourcing and liaising with suppliers on our behalf, to moving around their own days off to allow us to come in and scout the place out with our DJ, they made the whole day (and run up) go perfectly smoothly. The venue itself was spotlessly clean and provided a quirky blank canvas for us to make our mark on. Nothing was too much to ask - even the security staff they employed were so friendly that they felt more like guests on the day. All in all, we'd wholeheartedly recommend you consider the Boathouse Creative Studios for your event.
Fast and friendly communication.
