Great venue for a fabulous Christmas party that can accommodate a large number of people. It works really well with 3-4 different reception areas. The catering was average, the service good.

Chalked for of more modern history. Historians say it is the place where Albert Einstein first lectured on this theory of relativity. The House has three main rooms in it and gives one a reminder of the value of leaving a legacy.

Rhodes house is a venue that is reserved for meetings, weddings and gatherings. I don't think they offer night stays.
