Thank you Best Parteez for a friendly and professional service. All the kids loved the bouncy castle, and we will be recommending you to all of our friends. Great local business!! - Nicola Cole
Thank you for making my son's birthday party 'the best party ever' with the disco dome & diddy cars. I have had so many positive comments from parents of children who attended saying that their children also said it was the best!
Definitely would consider for another party, in fact my son who's party it was (5th) said he wants to have the same party until he's 88! Thanks again! - Carole Phelps
We recently used Best Parteez for our daughters 6th Birthday party and would say that the service received was excellent. Not only did Paul recommend venues and arrange party game organisers, he also tailored the disco music package to our daughters taste (loves One Direction but not keen on Frozen!!) The games were fun & well organised and the glow stick prizes went down very well with the children. Perfect party provided with a friendly, efficient service. Thanks So much and we would definitely use again and recommend to friends & family… - Amber and Dale Sharpe
We booked Best Parteez to provide a bouncy castle and added the didi-cars for our daughters 5th birthday party". They turned up on time to both set up and pack away and we were delighted with their service. The castle was clean and the didi-cars were an absolute hit with the children who spent as much time on them as possible! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Best Parteez to anyone, thank you!" - Jo Davies & Andy Raynor
Kids loved the soft play area. We had children as young as 1 and as old as 10 and they were all playing in it. Didi cars were in a very high demand too. There was a lot of laughter. We loved the facilities and how well the play area fitted in with the rest of the room. Parents could relax with a cup of tea whilst watching their little ones play happily. For me especially it was a stress free experience and flexibility in dealing with Best Parteez.- Janet Tillings
Thank you for supplying us with your bronze party package. My son thoroughly enjoyed himself as did all his friends. We had an age range from 1-7 years and it suited all the kids. Laura G
I used Best Parteez for my sons 4th birthday. Well what can I say, what a fantastic party it was!! The children's absolutely loved the bouncy castle and all the extra too!! We hired a bouncy castle, ride on toys, soft play and animal bouncers, the children though it was great..and so did the parents!! Would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Best Parteez for making his birthday so special!!! Would highly recommend them for a children's party!! Will be booking with them again next year!!! Thank you again!!! - Laura Lewis
'Great service - we used best parteez for our sons 3rd birthday, with 25 children the bronze package with the castle, soft play, hoppers & didi cars were a huge hit. Everything went to plan & Paul was very accommodating from start to finish, he was especially patient when the children wanted to help clear away! Thank you, we will definitely use you guys again' Many thanks - Kelly.
Best parteez was fantastic!! Very professional and friendly and the children loved everything! All the equipment was lovely and clean and the hoppers and diddi cars were a huge success. Highly recommended. - Nadia Peregreen
Thanks to Best parteez for the most fantastic job. There on time and had everything ready and going for my little man. Highly recommend for any celebration xxx thanx again xx got 1 happy little man this evening - Fiona Thomas
Recently booked Paul and Best Parteez for bouncy castle hire at home,with the party pack in case of the great British weather. He was really helpful on the phone and by email. They are a really accomodating company who are friendly and efficient. Thanks for making a successful party. - Zoe Elsmore
“We recently used Bestparteez for a joint party celebrating our daughters 4th and sons 2nd birthday. Having found Bestparteez on the internet we made contact and Paul made everything very simple from there on, we gave him the venue and time and he was there set up waiting for us to arrive!! The range and choice of party toys catered perfectly for a wide range of ages and all children had a brilliant time. We would certainly use Bestparteez in the future and have recommended them to many of our friends and family” Thanks again - Dave and Laura Johnson
'Would definitely recommend best parteez, just used them for my little girls second birthday and all the kids absolutely loved the toddler activity centre. The animal hoppers were a hit too but especially the didi cars, even the adults had a go on them! Great fun and Paul was very efficient and helpful too. Everyone said they had a great time' - Steph Pilkington
WOW!!! Thank you Paul for a great service, accommodating date changes
and prompt responses. Our 4 year old enjoyed his party very much and so
did the adults!!! The bouncy castle and disco combination worked a
treat. Nothing worse than having to stress about sorting everything out
- you took this off our hands!!! For that we thank you!!! Would highly
recommend - 5 stars ***** - Jason & Vikki
I cannot recommend Best Parteez enough! They saved us after we had been let down by another company! They are professional, knowledgeable and friendly. I have now booked them for my son's birthday as well! - Gemma Adams
“Over the Moon with Best Parteez for making our 5 year old son Dexter’s Birthday Party a day for him to remember. All the kids loved the bouncy castle and Disco aimed at their age group. From a parents perspective they were a joy to deal with, great communication from the off, turned up when they said they would for assembly and also disassembly, couldn’t ask for more” - Paul Smith
Highly recommend best parteez! Spot on with everything. Will defo use again! -Leanne Huyton
If you want a hassle free and smooth running party with great fun for children of all ages Best Parteez has it all! I booked a party for my 1 year old daughter and was over the moon with the service I received, friendly and helpful with a high quality of goods! Thanks Paul and crew... See you again next year! :) - Abbey Risbey
I was very impressed by the whole service given by Best Parteez. My 8 yr old daughter wanted to be fully involved in planning her party this year, and Paul was very good and showed her the party room (at the Main Place in Coleford) and talked her through the disco and lights and showed her the playlist so she could check the songs available. On the day itself, the Bouncy Castle was already up and so she got to bounce for a little while before the party began. Anything we wanted was provided and he couldn’t be more accommodating. The room itself has some good soundproofing, so we didn’t need to worry about people in the library below. Probably a good job with 16 x 8yr old girls belting out Let It Go from Frozen! All in all, a very good experience and a very good price for the disco and bouncy castle. If you’re thinking of booking something like this for your child’s party, do give them a call.- Julie Church
'Best Parteez are great value for money. From start to finish they had great customer service and did what they could to meet our needs maintaining good communication throughout our experience. The equipment was of good quality and very clean, brilliant to know when your little one is crawling around on it. The kids loved the inflatables, disco and the happy hoppers. We couldn't of asked for a better service, thanks for making our first babies birthday special!' - Zoe Butler
Planning a party for a 3 year old was very stressful, but at least we didn't have to worry about the entertainment! Paul arrived early and set up all of the equipment in no time at all, soon all of the kids were playing dancing and bouncing their little socks off! The little bouncy animals were a particular hit but the music and lights were what really set it off. I cannot imagine a child's party without Best Parteez being there, neither can my daughter it seems as she now wants a birthday party every day! Thank you Paul for making my daughters special day complete! Andrew B
'I am so pleased I booked a bouncy castle with Best Parteez. You get to deal with friendly and helpful people and I felt confident they wouldn't let me down. The bouncy castle was delivered and in place promptly for the party and the children had great fun in the castle and with the extra toys supplied. I would use Best Parteez again and recommend to anyone.' - Rachel A
Fantastic service! We hired best parteez for our sons 3rd birthday. From start to finish they offered an excellent and friendly service. My son and his friends had a fantastic time. Thanks very much. - Lizzy L
Best Parteez were incredibly focused on tailoring a party for our 4 year old to our exact needs. They had loads of great ideas and helped us assemble a fantastic party tremendously enjoyed by all. Paul made us feel entirely in control of the whole planning - he provided great options and suggestions without creating the slightest pressure on us. I heartily recommend taking his advice and found all the services we used great value. The equipment was new, clean, delighted the little ones and impressed the adults. - John H
" Best Parteez did a brilliant job at our fundraising event. They were very friendly to work with and considerate on the day. The toddler inflatable in particular was a massive hit (with all ages!) and would highly recommend. We will definitely be considering Best Parteez for future events!" - Sam B
We used best parteez for our daughters birthday and couldn't be happier with the service we received from start to finish they were polite,punctual and efficient will definitely use again and recommended to others. Thankyou we had a very happy girl and happy guests. - Julie L
Great service, bang on time, super friendly & helpful. Hired the under the sea bouncy castle, hoppers and soft play and was perfect, a good price, colourful, clean, a good size castle and good to have the shade in this hot weather too. Very much enjoyed. Many thanks 5* - Laura H
