What a way to make an entrance...!

Date published: Wednesday 4 June 2014

What a difference a day makes...

 

With the remit to let the light in and create more space in our bustling main entrance, work is underway to ring in the changes.

The oak panel separating the lounge from the reception area has already been removed, and now our team are working hard to complete the works to remove the old double entrance doors which we felt made the reception area dark and sometimes, a little tight for space at busy check in and check out times.

Flying the Flag for England

Date published: Monday 16 June 2014

Chris Wilson risks life and limb!

On Friday 13th June Chris Wilson, in support of the England team at the World Cup, climbed to the top of the hotel to personally change the Union Jack to the St George's Flag.

The glorious sunshine definitely made this a more pleasant experience for Chris but regardless of the weather, this is certainly NOT a climb for the feint hearted.  Although, the view from the top is certainly breath-taking and makes the climb even more worthwhile.

Happy Conference Clients

Happy Conference Clients

We were delighted to receive this testimony from one of our conference clients who held their event at the Balmer Lawn Hotel last week.  We thought it only right to share...

 

We were a group of 12 delegates attending a work function at the hotel. Our experience with Balmer Lawn was fantastic. From the minute I called the hotel to ask for information about organising a staff seminar to the minute we check-out the hotel. Each of us were well cared, the meeting room was fresh with natural light and a lovely private terrace. The staff went an extra mile bringing tables and chairs to this area. The sales representative Shaun made sure we were fine at all times, the lunch was delicious, the staff member at the restaurant (apologies I don't remember his name) was helpful and friendly. Also the staff member who looked after the conference room and coffee/tea breaks (apologies I don't remember his name) checked the timings with me each morning, brought the coffees and cakes and lovely fruit basket on time, great presentation too. The rooms were beautiful decorated, spacious and lovely views. Reception was helpful at all times, friendly girls who booked a few taxis happily for the group and provided us towels for the swimming pool. We enjoyed the drinks at the bar late in the night, the night receptionist - bar keeper was kind and helpful.
The check-out was also smoothly and we are all looking forward to our next stay in the hotel.

It was also very helpful Shaun's recommendation to a team building activity and to put me in touch with them. He made my job easier and enjoyable.
The 2 ladies at the Spa were welcoming and did a good job too.
Many thanks for your hospitality.

Everyone enjoyed the fantastic food on offer while soaking up the atmosphere and the sun at Balmer Lawns first BBQ of the season.
