have to pay testimony to the hard work of everyone involved in the project - from
the fantastic construction team that handed this major build project over on time,
to my new team of hotel staff who have worked around the clock to get everything
perfect for our opening. It's a real achievement and the highlight of my hotel
career to date.

and Fly' guests who get a fantastic deal on accommodation and low cost parking, to
our wedding customers with our first matrimonial celebration on Christmas Eve. Add
to this the fact that we are almost at full capacity in only our second week of
business for meetings and conferences and it seems that the area is crying out for a
high quality, contemporary hotel across all market sectors."
