I have travelled a fair bit and stayed in a few great hotels. So why on earth am I posting a review about a run-of-the-mill chain hotel in urban Nottingham? Well I think a lot of people in the hotel business could learn from the team here.
Eleven of us descended on the Premier inn for a weekend of Poker at Nearby Dusk til Dawn. From the moment we arrived Corinne on the front desk was smiley and upbeat and took a genuine interest in our plans. Throughout our stay she chatted with us about how we did and what we were up to next.
Another star member of staff was Amy who, despite having her arm in plaster, ensured we all had food, drink and a smile on our faces.
There was a real team spirit throughout the hotel and people genunely seemed to enjoy doing their job.
The rooms are exactly what you would expect in this price range, the food is good quality and the view over the canal from the dining room can be positively serene. The hotel is a £7 taxi ride from Dusk till Dawn, making it ideal for visiting poker players.
No matter if your hotel is part of a budget chain, or if it is the most expensive in the world, if you dont make your guests feel welcome, you are in the wrong business. If you want an example of a team that truly understands this (and poker!), visit the Premier Inn at Nottingham.
Thanks to all for a great weekend.
