Zurichandy68 wrote a review Nov 2021
Zurich, Switzerland15 contributions15 helpful votes
I was looking for a five star property in Beau Vallon and the many excellent reviews made me chose this hotel. What a mistake! It is definitely not a 5 star hotel in many aspects. Responsiveness from reservation department is not considered efficient, if a reply is received four days after my inquiry and several follow-ups in-between. Attitude of staff ranges from totally bored and lazy to very attentive and customer-oriented. One of the main drawbacks is the poorly maintained infrastructure in various areas of the hotel, e.g. bathroom fixtures, chairs and tables, painting, rusty trash bin lids, just to name a few. Prior to our stay at Story Hotel we stayed at Le Domaine de L'Orangeraie on La Digue, at Constance Lemuria on Praslin and on Denis Island. The latter two are definitely in another league of 5 star properties and can be warmly recommended. Maybe the difference between those two properties and the Story is too harsh. However, I do expect from a 5 star hotel in this price category much more than just a comfortable bed and a beautiful surrounding landscape. The night before departure I was called by a staff member from reception and asked about my experience. I was a bit surprised to receive this call and mentioned that my stay did not live up to my expectations. I offered to describe my impressions in an email. I was informed that the hotel manager would contact me. I referred to my email address which should have been stored from the check in process and from my various email interactions with guest relations (Michelle-Anne). I've never heard anything. This made me decide to write my experience on Tripadvisor. I want to mention three staff member who showed a very customer-oriented attitude and delivered a very good service: Michelle-Anne (guest relations), Nathan (bellman), Rita (waitress). Thanks for your service provided. However, I would not return to this property when traveling to the Seychelles next year again.

My holiday at Story was excellent from beginning to end. It started with the excellent Anny in reservations, The warm and accommodating welcome on arrival. Delicious food. Excellent and caring service throughout, especially the terrific Colin in concierge. The hotel has the wonderful combination of elegance with the personal touch.

This was our second stay. Members of staff are very professional and warm at the same time. The room was quite spacious and comfort level is beyond words. My wife and kids really enjoyed the pool area together with the world class breakfast provided with so much of variety.
