Bondev House (Conferencing)

Bondev House is perfect for themed events and has an enormous amount of potential to create a memorable time with us at the Royal Elephant Hotel & Conference Centre. The suite consists of a Large Ballroom style space and the separate Thatch Venue next to it is ideal for secondary conferences, functions, and private or breakaway events.

The Bondev Nomadic Tent can also be attached as an extra external extension on the lawns outside the venue, but the Bondev Patio should be more than enough for any outside smoking and/or casual meeting space requirements
