Our Clients Stories...

Prohealth Physicians

"The search for our Holiday Party venue, for 500+ guests began in January 2015.  After researching, visiting and speaking to referrals at five other CT locations, ProHealth Physicians selected the St. Clements Castle in Portland CT.  We were drawn to the beauty of the venue, from the elegant chandeliers of the Waterford Ballroom, the Collectible Antiques in the Art Gallery, the casualness of the Carriage House and Tavern Bar to the sophistication of the Prince Edwards Ballroom, St. Clements Castle met all of our needs.  Our guests vary in ages from 20 to 70.  St. Clements was able to offer something for everyone.  The staff at St. Clements specifically designed all the rooms to meet our needs:  the Prince Edwards Ballroom offered a more sophisticated celebration at sit-down tables with Rat Pat music piped in; the Waterford Ballroom was designed to encourage mingling and dancing with high top tables, a dance floor, dimmed lighting and of course a DJ; the smaller rooms; Taylor Dining Room, Art Gallery and the Foyer provided comfortable seating for smaller groups of 2 to 4 and finally the Tavern Bar offered a fun and casual location for group conversation and comfortable seating.  St. Clements staff took special care to strategically locate food stations throughout the castle thus encouraging guests to walk about and discover all the nooks and crannies.  The flow in both large rooms and nooks and crannies of the Castle provides a constant feeling of both spaciousness and intimacy, an unusual balance to achieve".
