Testimonials, General

Their customer service is fantastic, and the price point is awesome! Other venues nickel-and-dime you – not Ambridge.

The conference rooms are comfortable and I love that most of them have windows which let in natural light, a feature which is oftentimes missing in hotel conference centers.

I’ve seen my fair share of ballrooms and big meeting spaces, but this is the first time I remember actually being impressed with one. Highly recommended.
It’s always my first choice. I like the availability of parking, and the staff is very accommodating and responsive to our needs.
The Ambridge facility is beautiful, and it’s quieter than a hotel where people are coming and going all the time.

The people who attend our career fairs at Ambridge comment that it’s a good-looking venue and a very convenient location. When I find a venue like Ambridge that I like, I stick with it!
They served a plated meal of salmon, steak, and ravioli. It was all delicious. Would definitely recommend this place.

The space works really well for the 250 people we need to accommodate for each event. The location is central and there’s plenty of parking.

I can’t say enough good things about Ambridge. Their staff are uniformly excellent — friendly and responsive to all of our requests. It’s close to mass transport, and their parking options are very popular with our clients.
I’m really pleased with the Ambridge staff.  They notice that we need things before we do!
