Nick James, Sales Director, January 2013
"I have stayed at your Cadbury House property 20 times in the last 9 months and would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your employees for providing me with the service that you do.
I have the fortune, or misfortune, to stay in many hotels worldwide as a result of my job and so would like to think that i have experienced my fair share of good and bad service! I am conscious that bad service is always complained about but good service is seldom thanked.
From my initial booking with Ann, through to the greeting and warmth on arrival of Monica, Hannah and Lynette to the restaurant and bar staff - notably Mimo and Jon in the restaurant and David and Phil in the bar - i always feel like you not only want my business but you try your hardest to make the fact that i have to be away form home as enjoyable experience as possible. Tanya at breakfast also remembers that i like a capuccino to start my day and the little things often make the biggest differences.
The quality of the rooms and cleanliness is always very good and the facilities in the health club are first class. The meeting rooms are good, although I always seem to book the meeting rooms with the uncomfortable chairs so that will be top of my request next time i have a meeting at Cadbury!
Please relay my thanks to your employees. I stay away from home because i have to, not because i like to - so to have your representatives showing the levels of service they do make it a bit easier. Good service will always be a differentiator that leads to a repeatable competitive advantage and having that is why people like me repeatedly stay in your property."
