From the moment we stepped from our car we had excellent service and treatment. The general atmosphere was friendly and relaxed while at the same time being highly ptrofessional. We arrived early and were offered tea or coffee and a selection of delicious home baked muffins while we waited in the modern glassed sunroom / dining room. Each of the members of staff introduced themselves by first name as we met them.
We were booked in to a Garden room and it met our expectations and more. We had a view from our courtyard of Mt Wellington and were able to stroll around the garden if so desired. The bed was superb with a latex matress. The room was fitted out in a modern style.
The hotel inself was an interesting mixture of bygone era and modern contemporary using glass and steel.
There were many homely features throughout.
I cannot speak highly enough of the staff and indeed the entire hotel experience at The Islington..
