Sam Chaplin, hotel manager at The Link Hotel, comments: “It is easy to attribute our success to the financial investment we have made. However, in truth it is down to the hard work and determination of our team. For the first two years our investment was minimal, yet we still significantly grew the business and improved its reputation. The aesthetic improvements came later as we responded to client needs and the hotel’s growing popularity. As with the entire Imago Venues portfolio, the team here at The Link put our customers first and ensure we have the best possible staff on hand to meet their needs. That is what has ultimately led to our overwhelming success.”
In addition to its 94 bedrooms, The Link Hotel also provides conferencing and meeting facilities for up to 200 people, as well as holding a license to host weddings.
