Our goal at The Aldington Eco Centre is to provide a facility where trainers have everything they need to hand and can just focus on delivering their courses.  Trainers and delegates have complimented us on our warm welcome and friendly, professional hospitality.  Here are some comments:

“A wonderful facility, we were very well looked after in a beautiful setting! I will definitely use it again.”
“Today I facilitated a team development day at the Aldington Centre. Without a doubt, this has been the best venue I’ve worked in for a long time. Facilities, atmosphere and service have been excellent and contributed significantly to the success of the day. I look forward to returning.”
