Hotel booked for meeting on 13th April and from first phone call to final settling account......service was excellent, efficient, friendly, courteous and professional....I could not really have asked for anything more. The concept of dealing with staff who seemed to enjoy what they were doing was refreshing

Stayed as part of an overnight conference. Conference rooms were so warm we could barely breath. Water jugs gave us dirt into our glasses. The first day we were given stale sandwiches and soup so thick you could barely eat it. On the second day we had the same stale sandwiches and watered down soup with a lovely layer of... More

Nothing is a problem…… from changing layouts during the conference etc.. It’s the dedicated team, right throughout the day, in particular, James and Sean for IT. Nothing is a problem and of course Ruth, the conference manger.Also,... More
