What Keeps Our Hotel Teams Motivated?

It's the three most dreaded words you can hear mid- January - 'New Year's Resolution'. Yes, all those promises we made to ourselves (and others!) at the start of the year when we were at our most vulnerable, on a post-festive season high - no-one can stop us, we are invincible, THIS IS OUR YEAR *fist pumps air*. Whether you promised to give up chocolate, the odd glass of wine, go to the gym EVERY day, stay organised at work…two weeks later you're sat on the sofa in your onesie, surrounded by chocolate wrappers and a half empty bottle of vino feeling not-so-proud of yourself and not so 'new year, new you'. It's ok, we won't tell on you, in fact we think we may be able to help…

February - the Month of Love and a time to make the most of quality time with the one you love the most.
