I've stayed at this hotel before, two years ago, but my three night stay this time has made me realise just what a great hotel this is. Things got off to a great start when I was entered the hotel via the car park and met a lovely member of staff called Claudia, who was busy cleaning the floor but nevertheless took me all the way up to reception in the lift and made me feel very welcome.
From then on I really noticed that everyone working in the hotel, no matter what they were doing, made a point of smiling and saying hello. Makes you realise that actually this level of friendliness and courtesy is now quite rare in the world of corporate chain hotels. The barman who mixed us a mango bellini (on his, spot on, recommendation), the reception staff, the room cleaners, the waiters and waitresses in the restaurant - all of them were lovely.
Everything else about the hotel was great - food, room, bathroom, cleanliness, atmosphere - brilliant. Would highly recommend.
