“The Staff at The Holiday Inn 1935 Rooftop Restaurant could not have been more helpful and professional when organising this very sad family occasion for us. In particular Events Coordinator Hayley and Catering Manager Muhamad were so kind and made the whole event very dignified and actually a happy celebration of my Father’s life which under the strict guidelines and conditions they had to put into place was amazing. We are so grateful that some of his Family and Friends were able to raise a glass in one of my Dad’s favourite coffee stop. Superb food and copious cups of tea and coffee were always on hand. A lovely place to eat and celebrate an event if you are able to.”
“Dear Hayley, Laura and all the staff at the Holiday Inn
Just wanted to say thank you for everything that you did for my dad’s celebration of life on Thursday. The celebration went very well and all the staff were most helpful. Everyone said what a lovely venue it was and how good the food was. Dad would have enjoyed it very much. Thank you for everything”
“Thank you for making it feel special and we will continue to revisit the hotel as it was always my Dads favourite. In fact some of the guests had not been before and are keen to return.”
