Sarah was very responsive and the space met and exceeded our expectations. We utilized this space for our engineering meetings. The surroundings are beautiful, well maintained!! We definitely would love to go back and hold meetings here again.
Best kept secret for a beautiful meeting space in Palo Alto / the Valley in general. The garden setting is tranquil and relaxing. The historic home and gardens are an ideal setting. Sarah and staff went above and beyond to be accommodating and wonderful. I can't recommend this place highly enough!
The grounds are beautiful and the room was the perfect size and set-up for our group of 20 people. It did get a little stuffy, but there are 2 ceiling fans and you could open the doors onto the patio. When we had an issue with the HDMI input, Sarah the event manager was quick to resolve it so we could start our workshop on time.
We enjoyed the venue. It is perfect for an offsite. Sarah helped with everything that we needed. My only complaint was the internet connection. It was slow, and we couldn't connect at the same time. Sarah, it would be great if you could provide a stronger connection.
Working with Sarah in booking the Carriage House meeting space was a pleasure. She was responsive and very accommodating with all of my/my team's requests. Would definitely recommend this space to anyone looking for a beautiful venue to hold an off-site at. My team had nothing but nice things to say about their experience.
We love hosting our professional development workshops at Gamble Gardens. The staff is great and the environment perfect for our business purposes. I would recommend this venue to any event manager looking for a non traditional location to host their next meeting, networking mixer or seminar. Your clients will love it!
It's our 3rd time now at the Carriage house and we like the location, the set up and the included kitchen a lot. Highly recommended for workshops and meetings! Sarah is reliable and fast in responding.
