A Royal thank you

We would like to say a huge thank you to "Team RoyalYorkHotel " for the wonderful launch night last Thursday which we were lucky enough to attend. Around 300 people gathered at the Royal York for the grandest of grand launches.  My photographs do not do the event justice, but the memories are etched in our minds forever.
 £20 million have been spent on the refurbishment ,everything is first class and that was the theme of the evening. We were issued with a book of tickets, drank Flying Scotsman cocktails out of tin mugs and wow the food and food and more food just kept arriving at the appropriate stations . Nick Evans, head chef, and his merry band of chefs created a feast fit for kings,queens and all the royals in the land. There were cocktails makers and shakers and guests who enjoyed them too .
Take away the food and the drink and the plush surroundings ..and what is left ...the Staff...
They are the most charming ,caring and genuine crew you will ever come across and anyone who crosses the threshold of the Royal York Hotel will have the same experience.
Whether it be for lunch,afternoon tea or just a drink -they make you feel special and that is what it is all about. Not all the staff are from Yorkshire but they do give you a warm Yorkshire welcome as you will see the young man from Canada serving drinks. He worked so hard, but never did that shine of a smile leave him . Next week I am taking some staff of local businesses to have a look at what they offer.I am sure it will leave a lasting impression on them too
