Well House Consultants / Well House Manor - Prices for 2015

We've held our prices since 1st January 2008, and although inflation's not all that high at the moment, that's quite remarkable. We've been able to do so because we've been getting much busier, and with a longer season at the hotel, and because the cost and size of equipment for training courses has come down over the years - so as we've been able to make savings there. There comes, though, a time that prices need to be reviewed and we've done so - with new prices coming into effect for bookings made as from today.

Headlines

Unchanged
• Private and public training course places / rates
• Double Rooms at Well House Manor (for 2 adults / double occupancy)
• Conference room hire at Well House Manor
• Well House Manor cafe prices
• Cancellation policy

Increased
• Double Rooms at Well House Manor (for 1 adults / single occupancy) - up from £85.00 to £90.00 inc VAT
• Delegate / Contract room rate at Well House Manor (single or double occupancy) - up from £60.00 to £70.00 + VAT
• Overnight rate for tutor staying away to give a course - an increase of £10.00 per night to cover our increased costs

REDUCED (yes, really)
• Our mileage rate for travelling on site has been reduced by 25% as fuel prices have fallen recently and in addition we are now able to make better use of public transport to reach our customers due to service improvements and the need to carry less bulky equipment these days.
• For on site private courses in the European Union (including UK), if you provide equipment for delegates to use during the course, you may deduct £20.00 per delegate per day off the quoted price. This needs to be arranged at least 2 weeks before the course starts, and is may not be possible for a few of our courses where preconfigured systems are needed for a smooth course.

Still free of charge
• Visits to the Well House Collection - our Museum for Melksham
• Car Parking for customers at Well House Manor
• WiFi access for customers at Well House Manor
• Use of technical resources on or web site (see module list for categorised navigation)
• Pre-arranged collection of our delegates from Melksham train station prior to their course.
• An hour or two's consultation for potential delegates - especially useful for people who are looking to make a big career move.

Travel by public transport is sometimes a little slower than by road, and the roads are getting much busier. We are getting older too, so we've made a few adjustments and we will now spend an extra night away when providing training courses in the following postcode (these are the starting letters) areas: B, BH, CV, DT, EX and PO. For the other 121 postcode areas, there's no change.

The delegate / contract room rate is available for:
• Delegates coming to attend our courses
• Delegates and organisers of events at Well House Manor
• Company bookings where an average of 10 or more nights per month is booked by a company
• Member companies of Melksham Chamber of Commerce and Industry
• Individual stays of 7 or more successive nights
Existing delegate bookings will be honoured at current rates, and new delegate bookings by customers who have previously booked at the old rate will be honoured for bookings made up to and including 28th February 2015. After that date, the new rates will apply across the board, with exceptions only where a very high volume booking is involved.

Meeting rooms and conferences (Quotations - book by email or phone so we can check dates / resourcse)

We have an excellent staff team at Well House Manor, receiving rather good reviews on such sites as Trip Advisor in all categories, including value for money. By adjusting our prices for the first time in eight years, we plan to be able to continue to pay each full time permanent member of our team a living wage (and not just a minimum wage) - and indeed to be able to pay them a significnat annual bonus if we do well. We do not believe in paying a bare minimum and then encouraging our team to work for tips - it's not our culture and we find the whole business of expecting tips somewhat distasteful. Should you feel you have received excellent service, though, you are welcome to leave something for the staff which they directly divide out between them (nothing for Lisa and me as we run the place) based on the number of hours each has worked.

For on site training courses, here are a few examples each for a course of 2 days. Kingston upon Hull - decrease in price by £12. Taunton - increase in price by £9. Truro - decrease in price by £2. Dublin - decrease in price by £19. And if you provide the equipment for delegate to use during the course in the EU (inc. UK), for a 2 day course / 5 delegates (for example) you can save £200.
