Their residence centre was clean, comfortable, and very neat! Not only was it a beautiful facility, it was all more than reasonably priced. All front desk staff could not have been more polite and helpful which was very impressive. Everything was accessible, full of friendly staff and a great value for your money! We were very pleased with choosing Fanshawe College Conference Services.
