Business Testimonials

Meeting room

‘I was delivering a training course  for the first time and on my own as my colleague had had to return home sick as soon as she arrived..From the start, all the staff at your hotel worked hard to ensure that everything was organised for me as it needed to be. Ravin greeted me and showed me to our training rooms on the first morning and checked I had everything I needed and that the refreshment breaks were as I had asked. A man stayed with me to ensure all the technology was working fine and helped me to connect my camera to a laptop. From that point on, every member of staff I encountered greeted me with courtesy, friendliness and checked out whether they could help.’
