My old man told me organising my Stag event would be like trying to nail Jelly to a wall as all my Stags were spread the length and breadth of the Country from Oxford to Edinburgh and all the shires inbetween,
Well with the aid of Stag Co and the website I found it a breeze, 1 place for everyone to pay to 1 place to contact for queries and updates on the event 1 place to tell the boys to just read the website to be honest I couldn't have been happier with the service I received The events arranged for us were excellent shooting and medieval banquet were a real laugh and the hotel was amazing. We all expected a bog standard room etc especially as stag night tend to have a bad reputation, all I can say is we could not have been more wrong the Nottingham Hilton was a very nice hotel with really friendly staff and rooms which were beyond what we expected. If I had to organise or be involved in another Stag Do the first place I would recommend would be the Stag Co, So much so my future wife was mightily peeved at the amount of stress she had with the Hens whom organised there own event and all the stress that went with that. To Sum up Great organisers Fantastic Prices Knock out events And issues Dealt with Same day and very politely. One happy Stag now just hope the big day goes as well maybe they ought to branch out in to weddings ;-) Matt C One Happy Stag....
Went on an Edinburgh stag weekend, was very impressed with the accommodation, transfers and white water rafting. The meal on the Saturday was good too, the only downside was the choice of club they had booked us in to. It was full of 40 something's and the music wasn't great, out group of 20 something's soon left to find a more age appropriate club. Overall a great weekend!
A group of 7 of us went to Prague for my Stag Do. My bunch of mates aren't the most organised, so chasing them round to transfer money for booking hotels and activities etc would have been a nightmare. The Stag Company made this so easy. We just chose the package that best suited what we wanted, and then The Stag Company tailored it to exatly what we needed. All of the organisation was taken care of, all we had to worry about was booking flights and turning up to the airport on time. Communication was really good too and whenever I had contact customer service, they were always really helpful.
When we arrived in Prague, we were greated by our rep, who was fantastic. She judged the type of group that we were and tailored our trip to what she thought would be best for us, but she wasn't pushy, she always let us do exactly what we wanted and just advised the best way to do it.
I think that what we paid for the package was really good value. I'm sure if we shopped around, we could have paid a little less, but the convenience of all the organisation and the benefit of having the rep with us was well worth the extra few quid. The accomodation was great as well, we couldn't have been better situated.
All in all, we had a great time and were well taken care of.
This company is very over priced, they book very cheap places for you so there profit is very high.
I used this company due to the groom deciding at the last minute that he wanted a stag do. Very easy to book, tom who i dealt with was very good and helpfull and answered all my questions. All seemed very well organised, once stag do was all payed for this is when it all went down hill, didnt get my itineary until last minute. Hotel book in was at the same time as clay pigeon shooting, after numerous emails was told nothing could be changed as it was too late, even though it was too late due to them not giving me a provisional itinerary wich on the log in tells you they would, instead of going through them as they was very unhelpful i changed the time by ringing the clay pigeon shooting myself. On arrival the shooting place looked like it was just a farmers field who owned 2 guns, this place was enjoyable just down to the two farmers, if it wasnt down to them this place would of been a very poor place to start a stag do. On arrival at the jurry inn hotel that we stayed in found that we had to put a 700 pound deposit down (100 pound for each room) was not informed by the stag company that we would have to do this. Reluctantly i paid. Hotel was very nice but was told that we would have two double beds per room to find that we had 1 single and 1 double. Another case to bad organisation by nor informing us with the correct information. We then went to a chinese buffet wich was not a buffett at all like we was informed it was a very small set menu, staff were very rude and just trying to rush us out as she wanted the table back for the next guests, after paying alot of money for this you dont expect staff to be like this. Could not find two of the bars that the stag conpany had set up as was in the lanes and was not given any help on how to find the places. The one bar we did find was meant to have a free shot but when we asked for it we was told we would not get it unless we all purchased a drink, wich was fine but should have been advised about this before hand. We then had golf on the sunday, was informed by the stag company that hire of clubs would be free so told golfers to not all bring there clubs. Nearer the time wos told that the clubs would not be free that they would cost 5 pound each so made me out of pocket as i paid for them. Golfing was good but after a heavy session the night before we was all tierd looking forward to having a buggy so we did not have to walk to be informed that all buggs were out.
Overall found out how much all the places would have been if i would have done it my self and it would have been just over half the price, would not recommend using this conpany as its by far alot cheaper and easier to do it all yourself.
As best man it was on my shoulders to sort out the stag doo, the thought of trying to get money out of people and advising how much people would need to take to pay for various activities was a bit daunting. This is where the stag company stepped in and took the weight off my shoulders. Our package included two nights central Manchester, comedy club first night, in the morning we rallied our weary heads and went clay pigeon shooting and paintballing, the venue and staff were great. That night we went to Tiger Tiger. The meal and service was first class, it was also half price drinks till 9pm we managed to rack up a drinks bill if £250 which also included a saving of £250. We partied on into the night without incident. The beauty of this service is that everywhere we turned up I just said my name and all the details where there. Everyone had paid up front for two nights hotel, breakfasts, two evening meals, entertainment so it didn't feel like you had to have a massive amount of money as all of this was paid well in advance. When we got home everybody went on about what a great stag doo I'd organised, of course I did the right thing and lapped up the glory, but in my heart I knew it was the stag company that had made it an amazing weekend for all, but I'll just keep that as my little secret haha. All I can say is thank you stag company and all I personally delt with, and to anyone who isn't sure, take it from me let the stag company do the hard work and sit back and lap up the glory haha. Thanks.
I was dreading the logistics of organising a bachelor's trip for my good friend, due to past experiences with trying to get everyone to agree and running after people for money. Thankfully I stumbled across this company and the simplicity of their website and system drew me in. I was a bit skeptical initially due to fear of overheads and inflexibility, but their services ultimately turned out to be a simple, customisable and easy way of planning the trips.
The biggest plus is the payment system, which allows you to invite your friends online, and then sit back as they settle the payments themselves, in nicely staggered chunks. Much less headache.
They also provide emergency contacts at your destination, in case things go wrong in any way. We needed to call a couple of times and they were very prompt in getting things sorted.
Really friendly service, answered all my questions and made everything very simple. The hotel was very nice as I was expecting a typical stag hotel (dive) but we arrived at a very clean, very nice holiday inn. The hotel also booked all our taxis all weekend and were great behind the bar. The activities on sat were awesome and there was no hanging around, the whole weekend was a massive success and I would highly recommend using the stag company to anyone organising a stag or hen in that case :)
Using the Stag Company saved me money, time and effort. The standard of the hotels they book are 10/10, the activities were brilliant and the customer service team were very helpful too. The best thing from my point of view was that each member of the party pays online themselves, this saved me having to potentially chase the lads for cash and keep track of who had paid what. On a slightly different point - if you've never been to Newcastle then go! We did & loved it!
I was looking for the best/easiest way to plan a Stag Do, I did the classic mistake of leaving it quite late. The Stag Co really got me out of trouble and secured a great value package in Bristol with only about 6 weeks to go, I got lucky. The website is quite good, it could be clearer in places but I think it must be miles ahead of whatever people had to deal with just 5 or 10 years ago, made my life easier anyway. Staff are very friendly and helpful on the phone, never got any attitude from them and they were flexible to meet my needs, so top marks there.
Quad Biking, Hovercrafting and Clay Pigeon Shooting were great fun, the venue I went to (Bristol) was definitely not bottom of the barrel, the staff knew what they were doing and all my guys were happy with the experience. No one had tried hovercrafting before and everyone had a blast! We all got our money's worth.
The Stag Do consisted of an afternoon of activity (laser clays, road buggies, quad bikes) followed dinner at Hooters, then an evening at a Comedy Club, a Night Out in Nottingham and finally a stay at a hotel.
The activities were great fun and perfect for the group. Unfortunately, like all good things, it feels like it ends far too soon! the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Dinner at Hooters was well received, with good atmosphere and plenty to eat and drink.
The evening at the comedy club was very funny, and everyone has a brilliant, if not messy, night out in Nottingham,
The hotel we stays in was 3 star and did not disappoint, especially the all-you-can-eat breakfast in the morning!
Overall, and excellent weekend, and good value for money.
The staff at The Stag Company were very helpful throughout booking process (i found their online booking site particularly useful for organising everyone, especially for payments), and everything went off without any problems on the day.
Had a great weekend organised by The Stag Company. Was organising from abroad so they took a lot of the stress away from it. Events they organised were spot on, especially the Karting which was great fun.
The stag company made sure that everything we wanted could happen within a narrow budget. This included a 5 star hotel, go karting, a two course meal and club entry on two nights. I would highly recommend the company to anyone who is booking for a large group and really doesn't know where to start! The company put together several different packages for us to choose from too. Thank you! Great weekend and one to remember!
I personally would recommend using the company , the company was very easy to use, helpful and willing to try to make it easy for my party to pay / amend options if needed. The golf was very impressive, the course was attrative and to a high standard. The hotel was in a good location near town and although not 5 star, it fitted our needs perfectly. The only one downside was the fun bus which i would advise to avoid, the bus was a second hand double decker with iritating hosts. But all in all a great night out and Cardiff is a venue worth visiting.
Complete waste of time and way overpriced, you would be better off planning it yourself.
Newcastle weekend - the Friday nightclub entry was non-existent. Staff said they have has it numerous amount of times from "The Stag Company" and that they don't do this free entry that is listed. Sat night at the dogs, not a place you want to be, rough and an absolute dive of a place. Only thing they got right was the accomodation and the Sat night club entry.
Overall avoid at all costs, you be better off booking yourself in to places and would save money.
Very easy booking and payment procedure, the fact that each person can pay separately, takes the hassle out of chasing up money for the organiser (me!). The staff are very friendly and helpful and full of good ideas and suggestions.
The weekend in Brighton was good value, with comedy club and meal, clay pigeon shooting and free entry to a lap dancing club. I would recommend this company to anybody.
From start to finish the hen do was very organised. We had a detailed itinerary that we could follow for the weekend. We had something planned every day so we were always busy. The dirty Dancing master class was amazing, had such fun. Would recomend this website and will be using it in the future.
Newcastle know how to party and that's exactly what we wanted in a stag do destination! The package put together by The Stag Company was spot on with the accommodation just what was needed....a comfy nights sleep (well a couple of hours) and a bit of breakie. The club entry on the first night was spot on and gave us an idea of why to expect the following night.
The whole booking and payment experience was perfect and the online system makes life easy.
12 irish guys spending the weekend in Liverpool... this had the potential to be quite an eventful weekend! The ability to pay online was great no need to gather cash from people. Range of options were great for activities and we went with a full days paintballing. The hotel was great, perfect for stags and hens and ideally located in city centre (adelphi). Would recommend the stag company as a whole but we had difficulties with the paintball company (Swat paintball) that our full day activity was with. It ended up having a negative effect on our weekend especially when you pay for lunch and get a pot noodle! Overall though I would recommend the stag company as any direct dealings I had were pleasant and professional.
I was advised by a friend to use the stag company as he had a great past experience. I was looking to book a paint balling day for our Christmas function, I spoke to a member of staff called jack. He was exrtemely helpful and not only did he book every thing on the times and dates I wanted, he sent me a whole information pack which was really useful! Overall the experience I have received from the stag company whilst booking was very pleasant and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again!!
We got the stag company to arrange our fiends stag do in Amsterdam. They arranged pretty much everything! Even sent us flight options as our party were quite unorganised. The activities they managed to fit into our timescale was incredible and throughout the whole process they were always on hand to amend and make changed as and when we needed them to. Would highly recommend them and have done. Pretty sure they were in the top 100 emerging business' in Sussex and it's clear to see why!
