Read what other planners and attendees said about their experiences at Kingsmill.
"As I noted to Craig at our first meeting last April, it was very important that we provide a professional, positive and memorable experience for our customers. It is a pleasure to let you know that you achieved every bit of that objective and more. The numerous comments from our customers, as well as our own staff, throughout the week were glowing, from the setting to the food to the quality service from all Kingsmill staff. I think the relaxed and professional environment of the resort was a major contributor to the positive feedback from all of our attendees. Indeed, it is hard to conceive of any aspect of the event that could be improved.
Please extend sincere thanks and appreciation to all members of the Kingsmill team who contributed to the success of our event. If you ever need a reference for prospective customers, please do not hesitate to contact me."

"Stayed at Kingsmill for a business meeting. The meeting rooms were very spacious and had incredible views. The staff was very professional and made sure to greet you at every chance. The room I had was comfortable and had plenty of space. Would definitely stay again."
Trip Advisor Review | July 2017
"This was our 2nd meeting at Kingsmill and it met all of our expectations again. One of our colleagues from Denmark said this was the most beautiful location he had been to for a meeting. With the James River, the gorgeous landscaping, wildlife everywhere, The James Landing Grille, The Pettus House, professional staff, great meeting room, to-die-for food - Kingsmill was the perfect location for us."

"Great resort for a meeting: A very nice setting for a meeting. the grounds were well maintained and the staff was very nice and attentive. Williamsburg is a very family friendly town with a lot of activities for all ages. A great place for golf and a weekend or whole week."

"Hello Ange – I wanted to take a moment to thank you again for the incredible support and direction you provided while putting together the perfect meeting package for our team at GE. You made the entire process very easy and did not miss a single detail; it was practically effortless for me.
I can tell you, as I am in the midst of planning the next quarterly meeting for our team, I appreciate you EVEN MORE. I have reached out to several similar venues for information and guidance, but not getting the professional, prompt, and courteous response as when working with Kingsmill. If it were up to me, Kingsmill would host every event for us going forward, but unfortunately I am asked to move around the territory from Q to Q. YOU ARE THE BEST! I look forward to returning to Kingsmill.
All the best,
Letter to Ange Imburgia, Conference Planning Manager

"The best of the best. Years ago I worked for The Ritz-Carlton in Washington, DC. Your sales staff is of the caliber of the standards we were trained with at The Ritz."

"We just completed a large group golf outing at the Kingsmill Resort. We could have not been taken care of better - it was Southern Hospitality at its finest. From the warm greeting and constant attention of Jodi Witt, our Conference Planning Manager, who helped with all of our logistics and complicated individual needs, to Jeremy Hyjek and his golf staff, who looked after us and all of our competitions, to Joe Barrow, Director of Conference Sales and Services, who made sure everything was perfect. And it was - the food, the convenience of everything, the course conditions, and kind attention of the staff was outstanding. This would be a great place to go for a large convention or as a smaller get away. Great job Kingsmill!"

“Kingsmill was great to work with! They provided our Allstate Capital CSA Leadership Team a customized “Kingsmill Olympics” experience that allowed for our entire team to participate in a fun, engaging, and rewarding team-building event. Our entire group felt this was a highlight of our conference.”
Jay Lowery, Administrative Manager | October 2016 | Allstate Insurance Company
"This resort met all of our needs even though they were at 98% occupancy during our stay. I highly recommend them. Our meeting consisted of employees who flew in from all over the world and having two airports within an hours drive helped. We had a golf tournament and ate most of our meals at the resort without repeating any of the restaurants."

"I wanted to reach out and say thank you for making our weekend at Kingsmill fantastic.Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and that was largely due to how great you guys were in the planning process and on-site. As the coordinator, that made my job so much easier and I appreciate it. Every member of the Kingsmill staff that I encountered was excellent as well, making for an even more pleasant weekend. So thank you, for all that you and the Kingsmill staff did to help us have a great time."
K. Cork | April 2016 | Southern Refrigeration Corporation
"It was a most stunning and jaw dropping experience for me and my employees. Everyone has made a comment about the happiness of the staff and the cheerfulness and customer service they received. Because of you guys, you made me (a non-event planner) look like a champion, top shelf event coordinator...so thank you so very much. We all felt like we were the only ones there and we were your only priority. We loved that. We love Kingsmill and their staff!!!"

"Ange was by far the best planner for our group. Worked well with our staff just like being a member of our existing team. We thank Ange for taking the time to make sure all of our needs were met. We are thankful to have someone else be in charge of the logistical things that are staff normally handles at a hotel/conference sites for our events. We appreciated the suggestions and taking the time to arrange specific things like moving our lunch to the Elements 1010 Restaurant."

"I have nothing but wonderful feedback to provide regarding our event and how well our needs are met (and exceeded) by all the different teams that work to make our conference a success! I have worked with other hotels/facilities and without a doubt, Kingsmill is head and shoulders above the rest! The difference is the effect that a cohesive team makes to the overall flow and impression of the conference. All of the different teams/departments communicate well with one another and work to deliver optimal results. Our guests always rave about the venue and most request that we keep it there the following year. As the planner, I am so grateful to have such a wonderful group of people to work with throughout the year. It makes such a difference in my job when I know the venue and what's being done (or not being done) is the absolute least of my concerns."

"One of the reasons I continue to book the Tax Conference at Kingsmill is because of the professional manner in which I am treated. After each conference, I am asked, "Are we going to be here next year?" Kingsmill has been the perfect fit for my conference and I am always happy to know that I am going to be treated with the utmost courtesy."

"I have had numerous contacts with how impressed they were with the wedding. The grounds are beautiful. Kaitlin was a dream to work with and I would highly recommend her and the resort for anyone planning a wedding in Williamsburg." - MeetingScope, October, 2014
"Thank you for helping me make this program such a huge success! I could not have done it without you and your amazing team. Everywhere I went there was someone asking if I needed anything or if there was anything they could do to assist. That is so rare to find in the service industry today. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service, and your team provided that tenfold. I am still receiving emails from vendors raving about the event, they absolutely loved it! I hope to work with you all again very soon." - MeetingScope
"Our employees are spread across the country and once a year we get together for training and team building. Kingsmill Resort exceeded my expectations. The entire staff was pleasant, smiling, and helpful. We had two banquets that my team enjoyed and they even made us a fabulous 10th anniversary cake. For anyone planning a meeting where you will be sitting all day, Kingsmill offers the very comfortable Herman Miller Aeron chairs. The venue is beautiful and well maintained. I highly recommend the resort for both business and pleasure. Room Tip: The river views and sunsets are worth the upgrade." - TripAdvisor
"The staff of Kingsmill was fabulous! I would like to send big thank you to Bee, William, Philip and Jason. I know I am missing a few names but they all went above and beyond during each of our events to make sure everything went smoothly. There attentiveness, kindness and hard work that they showed our group will not be forgotten. Loved, loved, loved them all! They were so much fun to work with!"
"Kingsmill is a beautiful, comfortable property; very well maintained and managed. The resort staff was always friendly, professional and accessible. They met and exceeded all our expectations! Thanks to everyone for everything they did on our behalf to make our conference the best one yet!"
"The Kingsmill Resort staff is one of the best I have ever worked with over the 23+ years I have been planning our fall retreats. We had a "Chili Cookoff" one afternoon and we were totally impressed with the time and effort displayed by the Chef and other key Kingsmill staffers. I would absolutely not hesitate to return to Kingsmill. The entire staff, accommodations, and meeting facilities are the best! It is a beautiful resort with a top notch staff."
"What a show. What an effort. But even more impressive, what results! Great job last week for the VSAE Annual Meeting. Kingsmill looked great in every aspect. The team that you worked with in banquet services did a wonderful job in the presentation and quality of our meals, breaks and refreshments making the whole meeting experience simply outstanding."
"Thank you to the wonderful staff at the Kingmill for literally the best service and hospitality I've experienced. Just returned from the VMGMA conference and cannot say enough wonderful things about the resort. Beautiful accommodations, awesome guest services, great food, shopping, and well getting driven from here to there in a golf cart by simply calling is sheer delight. I can't wait to return with my family so they can experience the ultimate guest experience, thank you all at the Kingsmill, you were outstanding!"
"Just wanted to let you know what an excellent and outstanding job the staff at Kingsmill did during our events there last week during the LPGA tournament! As if the tournament wasn’t enough to keep your staff busy, we had two major events for our company scheduled there on Thursday and Friday, and the staff that was assigned to us did not miss a beat. They were on top of every detail! Even when we threw in last minute requests or details they were able to accomplish everything that was asked of them. Additional kudos to all of them because their demeanor was always calm, on point, very friendly, polite, respectful and accommodating which is why we return year after year. You have an outstanding team there, please let them know how valuable we think they are to the success of your resort. Your customer service is top of the line. Please extend our thanks and appreciation for a job well done! We look forward to working with you in the future."
"Kingsmill is a beautiful resort on the serene James River. Every amenity we could have hoped for we found at Kingsmill. The rooms were very clean, spacious and comfortable. The meeting space, break area and staff were ideal. Kimberly and Angela were extremely helpful and enjoyable to work with from beginning to end. In general, the Kingsmill staff all seem to have her attentive and positive attitude. Our team members had nothing but good things to say about their time at Kingsmill and we would definitely consider it for our future personal and business outings."
"We have used Kingsmill for many of our clients over the past few years and they consistently impress me with the constant upgrading and expanding of facilities, attention to detail, friendly and efficient service and their willingness to be flexible to meet the needs of each particular groups needs."
