Great Hotel and Service

Rickmansworth, United Kingdom

I stayed here for a Conference, held at the hotel. I was the best Conference I have been to for 30 years. It helped that the weather was perfect. I booked a suite with sea view, which was fabulous, big lounge with Art Deco mirror, lovely balcony with comfortable chairs, and table overlooking the beach. Nice bedroom, really comfortable she sheets, good aircon. Large bathroom with bath, double sink, and separate shower. Only issue was wifi, which was intermittent, but not fault of the hotel, this was Rio! I was in the 'Annexe', which is almost as old as the main hotel, with antique lifts, which though lovely were unreliable! I had to use the Service lift on one ocassion.,Huge Pool and 4 Retaurants. The Coffee shop, where I ate, had really good food, as good as the Michelin Star restaurants also in the Hotel. What was really noticeable was the friendliness of the staff, everywhere, Resturant, cleaning staff, Front Desk. The Duty manager, George, personally went to get some heart Pills I had forgotten, and got a reduction using his health Insurance! Private area on the beach wiyh Parasol, lounger and water. I last sytayed her 40 years ago on my first visit, when the hotel was Grand but run down. No longer, a fabulous Place. Needless tosay, the Conference also ran like clockwork, with excellent food and service..
