Testimonials

"Engage With Age has only recently discovered CiNI’s wonderful board rooms but we have been quick to book them now for any meetings and training that we are organising. The rooms are great value with easy-to-use equipment and free off-street car parking; they are very accessible too with a lift for those unable to use the stairs. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful - rooms are set up with water jugs and tea/coffee facilities, if requested, well in advance of our meetings. The only time we are disappointed is when there are no available rooms to book for our meetings!"

Tara Collins, Volunteer Co-ordinator, Engage With Age HOPE Project

"I have used the training and meeting-room facilities at CiNI for a long time now for meetings, workshops and training events. It is well located, provides a neutral venue for representatives across all sectors and is well-appointed in terms of resources and comfort. The staff are always extremely helpful and welcoming and always ensure that using this facility provides a positive and worry-free experience."

Gerry Conway, Commissioning Lead – Early Years Family Support, Health Social Care Board

"I have been arranging hospitality for Belfast and South Eastern Childcare Partnership for over a year now and I find CiNI will go that extra mile to ensure that Partnership is well looked after."

Clover J. Gabbidon, Belfast South Eastern Childcare Partnership

"We have been hiring rooms from CiNI for number of years now and have now hired all of the rooms they have on offer. Whether it be for a small gathering, interviews, meetings or large training events CiNI have always been on hand to help us and cater to our specific needs. The rooms are clean, spacious and CiNI will work with you to ensure that the rooms are set up to your particular needs. The staff are friendly and helpful and the catering on site is also excellent and delivered promptly. Onsite parking is a huge bonus particularly as we often invite participants from all over Northern Ireland to attend our events. We would highly recommend CiNI as a venue for large or small events."
