Tony Brown - Cursillo - February 2017

'Words cannot begin to express our thanks for the wonderful service we have received from all at Wilson Carlile for our Cursillo Weekend 2017. Thanks to Becky for your understanding way of dealing with our needs. Peter & Nick are unique in delivering those needs, nothing has been too much trouble, in many cases anticipating what we required before we knew ourselves. In writing our thanks a very big thank you must go to your chef Michael: his choice of menus and the delivery of the food has been outstanding. I can add little, except to hope we can agree on a suitable date for next year! Thank you again on behalf of all who attended Cursillo #11 2017.'

Sheonagh - Fresh Expressions - June 2016

'We regularly hold meetings at the Wilson Carlile Centre. The staff are always very friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble for them. The facilities, the food and the service are great. We will certainly continue to use them and would certainly recommend others to do so. Thank you to all at WCC.'

Neville Willerton - Centres of Mission Conference organiser - May 2016

'Can I record my thanks to all of you for the huge effort you put into making the Centres of Mission Conference a brilliant success. I received lots of feedback from the delegates who shared with me about staying at the Wilson Carlile Centre - they specifically enjoyed the welcome and hospitality. As conference organiser I knew I could relax and enjoy the week because everything was in hand with accommodation, catering, registration - even down to the golden helium balloons!'

Colette Bunker - Common Purpose UK - March 2016

'As a training course provider, we have used many venues throughout Sheffield through the years to host our student courses and the Wilson Carlile Centre is among the very best. Their facilities provide everything we need, the room is very quiet, well lit and spacious and the catering is always good quality and brought to us on time. We have very exacting standards which the friendly staff at WCC respect and work hard to achieve. Their attention to detail is second to none and they go above and beyond to help us in all situations. Working with them is a pleasure.'

Ciara McGrath - UK Students for the Exploration and Development of Space - March 2016

'Our committee recently stayed at WCC while hosting a conference at the University of Sheffield. We all had an incredibly pleasant stay and our committee all agreed that it was exceptional value for money. We were able to get an excellent nights sleep and the communal kitchen meant we could have breakfast even when heading out early to set up for our conference. Thank you for making our stay in Sheffield such a pleasant one.'

Marie Emerson-Smith, Depaul UK - August 2015

'Depaul UK has used WCC as a venue for various meetings and management days. The venue is ideal and the facilities are excellent - providing a large conferencing room and smaller break-out rooms for seminars and IT equipment, including the provision of a laptop and projector. The premises are clearly well managed and very organised, providing a reliable reception and welcome desk, concierge and security at night, a lead contact for organising and booking events and dedicated catering staff in the on-site cafe. The catering is very good value for money and WCC can cater for all dietary needs. What makes WCC different from other venues is the staff. They will do all they can and go above and beyond to ensure you have all you need for your stay or booking. I would recommend WCC as a great venue for small conferences, training, meetings or events. 

Neville Barnes - Xplore Programme Leader - October 2014

'Most people equate affordable with poor quality but thats definitely not the case at the Wilson Carlile Centre. I bring conference groups about three times a year because I can afford it but I get so much more besides. Its a great moment when delegates see the accommodation and say, 'Oh, I wasn't expecting this.' Rooms are clean, bright, warm and very comfortable. In the past WCC was a very 'functional' space for conferences but now it includes soft seating areas which are a great addition when you reach the end of the day and just need to relax. The lecture & meeting space is very flexible and quiet with ample amount of break out rooms. Its close to so many places to eat in the city but in truth the food is so good in the café area there is little need to go out. The courtyard and garden are a bit of a welcome surprise given how built up the area is, all the greenery slows you down and has a bit of a country feel to it. I just wish I used it in the summer so I could throw garden party into my programme! Its a great place with great staff. Thank you WCC.'

Andrew Knight - Director, Campus Outreach - August 2014

'The Wilson Carlile Centre met my attendees needs and exceeded our expectations with prompt service, courteous staff, clean accommodation, and very competitive rates. The Centre offers a variety of services and options such as meeting facilities, food choices, study lounges, a coffee bar, and outdoor tranquil areas.  The Centre's location is ideal as it is centrally located in the city and offers easy access to the city's attractions.  I recommend and plan to use the Wilson Carlisle Centre for my future accommodation and conference needs.'

Simon Desroches - July 2014

'Standing in front of the Wilson Carlile Centre I am always touched by the crosses on the glass front door of the reception. The front door is automatic like an old friend with open arms and upon entering I'm touched by a welcoming presence of peace. The smile from the Receptionist beams at a safe distance and I'm able to take in all the café and library before I enter at my own speed, unusual in this day and age. If I choose to amble through the library, sit and watch the videos or take to sampling the café's delights I am safe in the knowledge that no expectation is made, that I am truly welcome. I have always enjoyed the café's menu, sampling much, and have been delighted to have had the opportunity many times. I have still to meet a grumpy member of staff and delight upon every visit to this most wonderful venue. Looking forward to my next visit, yours in anticipation.'

Department for Work and Pensions - June 2014

'The venue was fine, facilities were good. They were very helpful in shifting things round like lunch and coffees when we had to change times as we didn't stick to the agenda. No problems with using again.'
